  • Wasting time and money on band-aid solutions that don't work

  • Frustration about giving up your favorite activities or hobbies

  • Missing out on time and experiences with friends and family

Wade S.

"I have a hereditary condition that causes lower back pain, hip pain, and limited mobility.  I saw Jake to help with an incident that caused me to throw my back out.  I was experiencing pain, discomfort, and very limited mobility.  He was very personable and wanted to understand not only my current situation, but also my underlying condition and other causes.  I felt heard and understood and we were able to discuss my short-term and long-term goals for my back and hip.  He was able to assist in identifying the problem areas and worked to stretch and strengthen those areas.  I felt significantly better after the first visit and am stronger and more flexible now due to the exercises and recommendations he gave. 

I found Jake’s personality, professionalism, and ability to identify my issues to be exactly what I was looking for.  I view him as a trusted therapist for any needs I have in the future.  I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone in need of physical therapy services."
