“ This was a great group of professionals to work with over the past three months.  I dealt with another physical therapy group prior to my surgery and there was no comparison to Summit Physical Therapy.  Great job! ”

“Two years ago I began to feel pain in my left knee that reached its height when I was hobbling off Mt. Pilchuck in January. I was unable to climb or hike without experiencing sharp pains in my IT band, the fascia that runs from my hip to my knee on the outside of my left leg. I worked with Lauren twice a week for the last two months and am back to climbing, hiking, and walking PAIN FREE! I am not only back to my old self, I fell younger in my joints, hips, knees, and ankles! I haven’t felt so good after a workout since I was in high school. Thank you Lauren for making me feel better! You made it fun too!”

“Over the past couple of years, my shoulder had been getting worse and worse. I kept asking my doctor for a referral - he would tell me I didn't need it and show me some stretches to do. But it kept getting worse. Finally - after realizing how many activities of daily life I couldn't do, like gardening and housecleaning, I took matters into my own hands. I couldn't even sleep without taking ibuprofen to prevent the sharp pain that i'd get just rolling onto my "bad" side. I called my insurance company and found out that I didn't need a doctor's referral. I already knew Andrea through business networking. It was close to my home and office, so i just did it! Even after the first treatment, my shoulder felt a little better. At every visit, Andrea would test my range of motion before and after her muscle-loosening treatments. She'd query me about any pain that I might be feeling, and then showed me strengthening exercises - starting with very mild movements, and then as the weeks went on to more strenuous exercises. She patiently showed me small modifications to make each exercise work for maximum benefit. It took a few weeks, but my shoulder gradually improved. My garden is great, now that I don't have to figure out in advance how long I can work in it without hurting myself! I still do the exercises about five days a week, just to keep everything in good working order. But if something happens, I know I can go back, and that she will show me what needs to change. Thanks, Andrea!”

Lake Stevens (Reaction Physical Therapy)

Derek

“Reaction Physical Therapy was terrific.  I worked at both the Smokey Point clinic and the Lake Stevens clinic. Tawny and Amanda at Smokey Point got me prepared to start conditioning, while Kris and Katie at Lake Stevens, worked with me for the work conditioning program.  All were encouraging and very helpful.  I went through a similar injury with my other leg years ago.  When I went back to work, I wasn't ready and reinjured myself.  This time I am more prepared for the job and have returned to full duty with no complications.  Thank You to the whole Reaction family for your hard work and help.”
Puyallup (Meridian Physical Therapy)

Tiara

“I injured my neck and shoulder at work and was having a hard time recovering.  My doctor had sent me to physical therapy and massage at another PT office, but I was not able to return to work and I was experiencing significant pain.  I had to take pain medication, I was unable to care for my house, go grocery shopping, care for my 3 boys, care for my brother who is handicapped, or work my job as a surgical nurse.  My doctor and case manager decided to put me in the work conditioning program at Meridian Physical Therapy.  It was a very hard program for me.  Five days a week, two hours a day, it was painful and VERY empotional...but it worked.  I can now go grocery shopping and clean my house.  I can keep up with my three boys (11, 8, and 6 years old). My brother is back at my house.  I can get his wheelchair in and out of his van, wheel him up and down a step, across the yard, transfer, and care for him.  Most of all I can work without pain and pay the bills to support my family doing the job that I love.  I really thought I would not be able to work as a nurse again.  I am so happy to have strength again and have my life back.”
Seattle (University Physical Therapy)

Treela

“I wanted to share my heartfelt thanks for curing me of my neck, shoulder and arm pain. I am so impressed with your knowledge, skill and results, always delivered with kindness, patience and good intention. For me, it's been rare to find a health care professional who can accomplish all of that. I truly felt you cared about my pain, listened to me and treated me with respect. Keep up the excellent work. Thank you for exceptional service!”

Robert

“ The entire staff both full time and part time were more than I expected.  They were knowledgeable, friendly, courteous and caring.  I have recommended them to several people.  They really made my sessions enjoyable, never boring or tedious.  I know this may sound strange, but I would actually look forward to going again, if ever needed.  They kept me well advised about future appointments.  Kept themselves physically fit and the office and exercise areas were always spotless, yet ever so professional.  Thank You! ”
