Advanced Physical Therapy Centers Testimonials
“Came into this practice with moderate to severe mid back pain that caused aches through almost every day. I’d visited chiropractors, massage therapists, etc. – no one was able to identify my true cause of the issue. ON THE FIRST VISIT, Teresa helped diagnose the “core” issue to my problem. I wasn’t activating my core while I worked out, played golf, or even sat at my desk. Throughout several other sessions, her professional and friendly assistant, Kelsey, helped make me aware of core stability and what muscles to use with multiple specific exercises. VERY HELPFUL, VERY INFORMATIVE, WOULD RECOMMEND! Thank you all.”
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!
- click above on Hal_2017…it is from one of our younger patients and he wanted to thank Teresa for helping him with his headaches. It is really special!
Best physical therapy experience ever in preparation for my upcoming surgery. Very knowledgeable. Will definitely go back post surgery if needed. Thanks Team!!!
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.
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!!!!!
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!
Advanced PT Centers gave me my life back! I was a former college athlete who suffered from several concussions during my athletic career. I developed post concussion headaches that consumed my entire life. Normal daily tasks became painful struggles, which would never go away. The only time I did not have a headache was when I was asleep. I feared that I would have headaches for the rest of my life. Dealing with severe pain 24/7 changed who I was entirely. The neurologist recommended I go to PT because NOTHING would get rid of the headaches. Advanced PT Centers is the reason I am painfree and happy today! They are professional, skilled, and truly care about helping you reach the goal of a painfree life. Not sure where I would be without this group. No one should live in pain! Advanced PT Centers will give you your life back and it will be free of pain!
The staff at Advanced PT Centers was wonderful. Not only did they help me reduce my migraines and symptoms, they were willing to go above and beyond to support me as their patient. I am grateful for Teresa and her staff who truly helped me live a better life! I won’t hesitate to refer friends and family. Thanks!
I came in with a significant amount of pain through my back and my knee. Kelsey was amazing to work with and she really helped me to recover and gave me the tools I need to keep myself healthy and out of pain. Thank you so much!!
