Darshinee, thank you for working with me on my rotator cuff injury. This was my first experience with physical therapy, and you made it a positive one. I appreciate the time you spend explaining what you were doing and what I should be doing and reassuring me that my shoulder was improving. I will certainly recommend your services to my friends.

As a professional photographer who also has knee and foot issues, I don't know where I would be without ProAction PT. The ProAction team has helped me for years, through post-op therapy as well as everyday treatment to keep me up and running. They are pros in every sense--and delightful, caring people as well. I can't recommend them too highly.

"I will certainly recommend your team to anyone who is an athlete or non-athlete in the future. You are absolutely the best PT I've ever come across. Your knowledge of running form and state of the art video techniques were instrumental in helping me overcome my decade long strength imbalances. You solved a problem that many PTs over many years were not able to solve."

"My husband has severe back pain due to arthritis in his back, disc disease and weight working against him. Medication didn't help that much and land therapy caused more pain.... Thank you to Ms. Werner for her knowledge and patience in working with him. His pain is much better and he is able to get around a lot better. Thank you again for all your help and encouragement."

"I have been very impressed with all the people I have interacted with at ProAction, Ken F., my physical therapist, is extremely knowledgeable as well as being skilled at tailoring his approach as my knee recovered (from surgery). Pam and Sheila are very well organized and courteous and worked to fit me in to meet my scheduling needs. Carrie did my post-surgical evaluation and was very knowledgeable and helpful. The whole team is professional and a pleasure to deal with. Needless to say, my therapy has been a big success."

"I was training for my first Marine Corps Marathon when I got injured. The personal attention I received at ProAction Physical Therapy helped me adjust my training and get back on my feet quickly. Because of their care and the treatment program designed specifically for me, I was able to finish the marathon in under 4 hours!"

Michael K.

"After rupturing my Achilles tendon for the second time in three months, I thought I would be permanently impaired as I had spoken to two other people who had had re-ruptures and their mobility was quite limited years later. Following my second surgery, I sent out an e-mail to the listserv of a local runners' club asking for recommendations of physical therapists. I received a number of responses for different therapists, but when five different people recommended Rachel Miller and ProAction Physical Therapy, and no one else received more than one recommendation, I knew where I wanted to go. I worked with Rachel and Ken at ProAction and couldn't have been more pleased. They developed a long-term plan for me, gave me their complete attention during sessions, and were incredibly supportive throughout the rehabilitation process. Two years later, I'm training for both a five mile road race, and a marathon in the fall. I couldn't recommend Rachel, Ken, and ProAction highly enough."

"After recovering from a third degree shoulder separation, I found that I had a lack of mobility and flexibility. I went to see ProAction PT and within a few sessions, I literally experienced immediate results. My strength and flexibility returned to my pre injury levels. Originally I was told that I needed surgery, but after letting it heal naturally and going to ProAction PT, I now continue to play sports with no deficits. I directly relate my positive recovery to ProAction PT."

"After two major experiences requiring lengthy Physical Therapy I have had extensive interface with the ProAction team. The staff is fully knowledgeable, patient, compassionate, and dedicated to treating the ''whole' person. Overall, I gained more direction and insight about my condition with ProAction than I did from my surgeon and other doctors."

Malcolm P.

"I recently concluded a successful physical therapy regimen with ProAction Physical Therapy to combat chronic plantar fasciitis. I had lived with it for almost a year trying to recover on my own. It didn't work. Rachel and Ken were terrific at identifying my problems, working them out, and recommending proper care. I have a frenzied work and travel schedule. They accommodated me with great flexibility. This is all besides their personal encouragement of my running goals. Thanks to them, I just completed the Disney World Half Marathon with my 21 year old daughter (first time runner). It was an athletic success and personal triumph. Thanks to both of them. I can't recommend their services enough."
