- Testimonials -

“When I began feeling pain in my hip and upper leg, I hobbled around for several weeks waiting for things to get better... My wife urged me to seek a referral for physical therapy, which I later asked my doctor to provide... It wasn't more than four weeks at physical therapy before I began to feel real relief. I was able to stand without experiencing pain after only a few minutes and have been returning to my regular activities after months of dealing with being incapacitated by my pain. I thank the team at Lake Sammamish PT for their terrific help and look forward to hiking again this spring.”-Terry W.
“After my total hip replacement surgery I began my PT with RET Reaction Physical Therapy in Lake Stevens. When lying on my side I couldn’t raise my left leg an inch from my right leg! With the help of Kelcie, Kris, and the entire staff I’m doing great. I’m now going to the Team Fitness Gym to get in better health as well. Thanks to my PT, I get stronger every day! The entire team at RET was professional, knowledgeable, and fun to work with. Thanks for everything.”-Mike G.
“When I came to RET I was totally nonfunctional, unless you count laying on the sofa. Through hard work I have consistently come from 37% to 83% functionality upon graduating. I have been to several rehabs during my six years of needing it, but RET is completely different. They not only have great therapists that know their business, but they get to know their patients. Thanks again RET.”-Judi O.
