I am able to use my hand without worry.

My experience at Professional Physical Therapy has been amazing. Everyone has been very helpful, professional, and friendly. When I first arrived, I had a hard time using my left hand to do daily tasks. Through the staff’s hard work I am able to use my left hand without worry after only a couple of weeks.

My Physical Therapy Story.

My experience here at ProPt has been wonderful! The staff, as well as everyone else, are friendly, helpful, and extremely knowledgeable. I have had various and multiple injuries over the last year and each time I choose here for my physical therapy. Recently, I fractured my wrist, which required surgery. Before I started my PT, my right hand was useless. Now, I am back to doing all the things that I could do before my surgery. Thank you so much for helping me be healthy again!
