    ""Five Stars!""

    Irlanda V.

    "There is no Physical Therapy business like this in the Tri-Cities. There is no Physical Therapy business like this on this side of the mountain. What I'm saying is they offer a unique approach to Physical Therapy that caters to everyone. You seriously need to go in and check it out and see for yourself! Are you an athlete? Do you want to isolate your muscles and find your weakest muscle/muscle group? Dr. Drew Carrell and Kirsten Shockman can help you with this no problem. Both are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Are you suffering from a recent or past injury? They can help you recover and get back to a healthier lifestyle where you are not limited in your day-to-day activities! Stop in and say hi and Cynthia the office manager can get you all setup!"
