Advanced Physical Therapy Centers Testimonials
Hello, my name is Roxana and I have been dealing with back and leg pain for 5 years. I have gone to 4 different physical therapists since herniating my discs between L4-L5 and L5-S1 and have gone to a chiropractor for the same amount of time. Nothing seemed to improve it, instead it got worse. So I decided after years of trying non-surgical treatment to look into surgery. I interviewed 8 surgeons and decided that I should interview my post-surgery physical therapist too. I had never considered interviewing different physical therapists before; I just went with whoever the doctor sent me too. I am so glad I did. The first three different physical therapists were the same; I was hearing the same plan I had been doing before I decided to have surgery. Then I interviewed Teresa Pepera and what a wonderful surprise. She was referred to me by my family doctor, who had a friend that was seeing Teresa and was very happy with her. Teresa’s approach was to not only help me condition my muscles, but also to work on how to move in better ways and “resetting” my brain. The first thing I learned was that I was strengthening the wrong muscles, so we worked on the right ones. We also worked on how to avoid certain movements and which ones are better to use to avoid re-injuring myself. This was one thing the other physical therapist didn’t do. The last and most important thing Teresa worked on was my thinking; to reset my brain to not think that I am still injured. This was really important to me, because I was so afraid to move at this point. She gave me the tools to confidently move around and pretty much gave me my life back. I would HIGHLY recommend Teresa to anybody that needed a physical therapist. She was so wonderful and helped to me in so many ways. I am so glad I found her and her wonderful staff.
After surgery for a total knee replacement, I chose to do my physical therapy at Advanced PT Centers on Cemetery Rd in Hilliard, Ohio. I had been to other physical therapists before and never felt the friendliness and compassion that I felt at Advanced PT Centers. Teresa, Autumn and Amber were all so wonderful and after 4 months of therapy, I am well on the road to recovery thanks to all of the staff at Advanced! When I decide to do my other knee replacement, I will definitely be going back to Advanced PT. Thanks Guys!
We were referred to Teresa at Advanced PT Centers by a friend of ours. We had no idea what to expect at our first appointment. Teresa and her staff put us at ease by explaining to us exactly what to expect from them. Before we started therapy with Teresa, our son was very clumsy with his daily activities. He played basketball at the Hilliard Y where we noticed he was having a hard time keeping up with most of the kids younger and smaller than him. At his size, he should have been able to perform at a much higher level but was unable to because he was slower and rigid/stiff in his movements. Once therapy sessions with Teresa began, we started seeing a noticeable difference in his mobility. He was more fluid, ran faster and was able to jump higher. Our son’s posture has also improved over the course of the PT sessions. The work Teresa has done with him has been “Night and Day” compared to before. We are extremely grateful for Teresa and her staff at APTC! I will definitely recommend her center to all my friends and family. Once again, thank you!!!!
What a wonderful Physical Therapy practice! I drove an extra 30 minutes to go there, and I was very happy with my experience. I went in for back pain. I am fully healed and really enjoyed the staff. Teresa did a great job diagnosing my back pain. Autumn was very knowledgeable and professional in working with me. Ken was very warm and friendly at the front desk. All around, a wonderful experience!!!
WOW! You folks are wonderful!! I’ve been to at least 3 different physical therapists over the past 10 years. None of them compare to you! Unlike other places that just put you on a machine or show you some exercises to do at home, at APTC I received hands-on physical therapy. Teresa and her staff were friendly, fun, helpful, understanding, accommodating, educational, professional, informative, caring and showed genuine concern for me. I could have gone to any PT, but I drove 42 miles per visit to be treated at APTC. For me, that’s saying a lot about Teresa and her staff. Thank you so much for all you have done – PAIN LEVEL ZERO!!!!!
At Advanced PT Centers, both Amber and Teresa not only listened to what I needed help with, but they asked me the right questions about my constant headaches. Over the course of 2 months, they gave me many exercises and worked with me individually to better my condition. They are not only great physical therapists, they are also easy to talk to and will help you get through anything.
Last June (2012), my knee pain was so severe that I thought I wouldn’t be able to participate in the mini-triathlon in August. As I began to work with Vijay, my initial goal was to finish the triathlon without pain. After lots of work, at home and with Vijay, I was able to accomplish my goal. He not only encouraged and challenged me but also suggested strategies and exercises that will continue to help me with posture, balance, foot/ankle stability, my position in space and visual motor tasks. I have incorporated the PT exercises into my daily routine with my mind’s eye toward a half marathon in 2013 or early 2014. The best part is that should I need assistance again, Advanced Physical Therapy is just a phone call away!
I chose Advanced PT Centers over other physical therapy practices because I heard good things about them. As I expected, my experience was great. They had a more effective approach towards my problem. They worked on different muscles that are connected. Teresa, who did the evaluation, was very thorough and explained everything well. Autumn, my therapist, was very professional and pleasant at the same time. She takes her job seriously. I would recommend Advanced PT Centers to everyone.
Three months ago, I was in constant pain. It interfered with every facet of my life. Thanks to the wonderful care and training I received from Teresa, Autumn and Amber, I am rejuvenated, healed and PAIN-FREE!
I was having bad headaches and the doctors could not find anything in the CT scans. After physical therapy with Teresa at APTC and the home exercises they gave me, the headaches have let up and now I hardly have them at all. I feel really good. I think the exercises and the physical therapy worked wonders on me. I feel like myself again!
