From Our Clients
“I started going to Synergy Physical Therapy almost immediately after having a complete shoulder replacement. From the beginning, I found Christine’s and Erin’s knowledge and skill to meet my needs better than other physical therapy I had experienced. In less than six weeks I had most of my range of motion back and had little or no pain. Both are enthusiastic and caring, always cheerful and extremely sensitive to my ability and pain level. Because of their skills and attitude I look forward to my therapy sessions.”
“Sarah has been working with me for about 6 weeks to relieve back pain. She is without a doubt one of the best therapists I have ever worked with. She is patient, very concerned about the pain I have been having and very careful that the exercises she chooses for me are appropriate, giving me continual progress toward being pain free. She challenges me to work hard and encourages me each time I see her to do just a bit more. The progress I have made was steady and always forward to the point where I am virtually pain free without having to have an epidural injection or surgery, which my Dr. thought would be the ultimate outcome regardless of therapy. Sarah is a very positive and encouraging therapist who has my highest recommendation! Thank you Sarah!”
“My friend, Dada Shimitrinanda, a monk from India, was in a serious car accident about 20 years ago & severely damaged his knee cartridge. Christine Carr’s working knowledge of yoga combined with her skills as a physical therapist are is an amazing example of synergy and creates a wonderful healing experience. Her gentle manipulations along with guided exercises have been a powerful aid in helping my friend, Dada, finally get on the path to recovery. His pain has been greatly reduced and he has been able to resume a normal exercise routine. Christine’s list of academic credentials is amazing and her practice is the perfect combination of Eastern & Western approchases to therepy. Thank you Christine!”
