I received Physical Therapy for my lower back and left hip, for three to four weeks at THERAPY1ONE. I chose to go to THERAPY1ONE because I had received therapy for my neck and shoulder about 7 years ago with an excellent outcome. This time the outcome is again excellent. My goal was to increase my endurance walking. I am happy to say I am able to tolerate walking for longer periods of time, but I can also recognize my limitations.
The whole staff is very professional and pleasant. The therapists are extremely knowledgeable and able to adapt the exercises for each individual patient. I was treated with respect and concern by everyone I encountered.
Also, the facility is very pleasant to the eye, clean, and orderly.

Success Story-Lenny

Jim Cox and THERAPY1ONE,
Thank you so much. I came in hurting and left feeling much better. The program and exercises designed for me will not only improve my general health, but likely prevent my injury from recurring.
The staff and physical therapists at THERAPY1ONE are friendly and professional. Their dedication to patient/client care really shows.
Thanks again for a great outcome.
