“11 Stars! Where do I even start? I just love PT because Neil has worked and helped me through so much pain and I can’t stop thanking him, he made me so happy.” -Anonymous
“My PT, Neil, was friendly, professional, calm and I quickly became confident that he really knows his business. The combination of his skilled manual work on my shoulder and his exercise prescriptions along with the miraculous Neubie machine, made a huge difference for me. In 7 sessions my pain subsided so much that I was able to sleep comfortably, improve my flexibility to be able to reach my top shelves and and to do everyday activities from carrying bags of dog food to bathing & dressing; it’s hard to appreciate the ease of pulling up pants with 2 hands until you can’t! He finished my course of PT by making sure I understood the importance of continuing with the gentle strengthening exercises in order to prevent future problems with the shoulder and encouraged me to reach out to him if I should ever have any questions. Many thanks to Neil.” -L.L.
