From Our Clients
“I am a 69 year old gentleman who suffered a back injury cutting wood. I was also diagnosed by my doctor with a degenerative spinal condition, and was referred to SYNERGY for physical therapy. Knowing that back surgery was a potential last resort remedial action, I was eager to try physical therapy as an intermediate (and hopefully, alternative step). After only two weeks of treatment, I was truly amazed at the results. Christine skillfully diagnosed my condition and guided me through a schedule of exercises that really worked. I left the office feeling completely well, and with the at-home tools to continue to keep my back healthy. Thank you Christine for your concern, skill and marvelous bedside manner.”
“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.”
“Christine Carr brings her Professional skills sets from being a Physical Therapist to the Yoga Studio. With that knowledge base, she leads therapeutically beneficial, progressive exercises in the yoga realm that consistently leave me feeling incredibly relaxed, refreshed and vibrant. Her sense of humor and positive affect in the instruction are highly effective in the Yoga she teaches. I would gladly recommend her to anyone interested in the practice of Yoga or in need of Physical Therapy. In addition, Christine is simply a genuinely wonderful person to be around.”
