- Testimonials -
Everyone at Eastside Physical Therapy was so nice. Brian, Jessica, Jake and Ashly are all professional and helped me with the therapy I did. I would recommend this place to people who need treatment. My experience has been terrific.
I am an avid golfer, so when I broke my arm just five weeks before a family vacation to Arizona for pool, golf, and baseball...I was disappointed. The great news was that two weeks before leaving Jessica got me back in shape. Vacation was a success and my arm is nearly fully recovered. Thank you to Jessica and the Eastside PT team.
This was my first experience coming to a physical therapist. I was delighted with my progress and treatment. I would highly recommend family and friends. This team is amazing!
The specialists at Eastside Physical Therapy did far more than provide a full recovery for my frozen shoulder—they made the long and difficult rehabilitation an engaging experience that I found myself looking forward to every week. It wasn’t just their encouragement, their respectful explanation of treatment, or even the daily brain teasers. It was the depth of caring that they put into every session. The people at Eastside Physical Therapy treated me like family and helped me recover from a painful condition with patience, respect, and dignity.
I would recommend Eastside Physical Therapy to any of my family and friends, and believe or not, I sometimes miss going.
