"Love coming to stretch! They have been able to improve things for me that no other physical therapist has been able to. All of the people that work here are super nice and very knowledgable. They know what I need and are focused.
Special shout out to Kim and Mike! They Rock!"

I’ve had a problem with by lower back for at least 3-4 years, especially my lower left side. I’ve had to do a lot of stretches before, during, and after playing tennis. In 2016, it seemed to get worse along with my right hip. I didn’t know if I wanted laser surgery on my back, or hip replacement, and right or left knee replacement. I did my hip first then opted for “Stretch P.T.” instead of possibly laser spine. I do know I have stenosis and arthritis L-4, L-5. After having physical therapy, my back seemed to calm down enough that I could do normal daily things that was limited before physical therapy. I still can’t run or play tennis yet. I need to take care of my left knee first. I believe that’s part of my left back problem. Thanks Stretch!
I had a back spasm that lasted over 2 weeks. Some pain medication dulled the pain, but I couldn't walk more than 200 feet, go up and down stairs or even carry anything over 20 pounds; including my son. After a few sessions, the Stretch team found a way to remove the pain entirely. They didn’t stop there, they worked to find the source of the problem and after fixing that, they helped me to build stability and then gain more strength. With the exercises to take home, the healing process has been life changing. Now I can exercise, do house and yard work, and more importantly carry my son.
Before I came back to Stretch, my pain was starting to act up. I knew the summer and after more activities were about to begin, so I decided to get a head start on the pain. When I returned, they suggested the deep laser therapy. After about 12 sessions, my pain is completely gone. Before if I did too much, my sciatic nerve would knot up, causing pain and numbness down my leg. Now both are gone, I do not have trouble gardening. I have used Stretch before to prevent going for more injections and surgeries. I use them now with even better results and I hope to continue to see them in the future. Thanks Stretch!
When I first came to Stretch, I came with a recommendation and an injured shoulder. Unlike other physical therapy locations I have been to, Stretch has a more personal approach. The therapists at Stretch did not only focus on my shoulder, but also the surrounding and associated muscle groups. The result has been a more complete recovery. I recently injured my hamstring and made sure that my orthopaedist referred me to Stretch. The staff is very thorough, professional and attentive. Again, rather than focus on my hamstring, they also considered surrounding, contributing muscle groups which led to a complete and full recovery.
After trying a variety of things to help my tennis elbow, I found myself at Stretch Physical Therapy. It was through their treatment plan that I finally started to experience relief, and have actual healing. Stretch was able to identify the root cause and help me work through the issue, which in turn helped my elbow. When I came to Stretch, I was not able to use a blow dryer, mop the floor, or attend a regular Pilates class. After Stretch, I was able to use my blow dryer without pain, pull my luggage through the airport, and return to my regular Pilates class. I am truly thankful to everyone at Stretch Physical Therapy!
I have degenerative disk disease in my lower lumbar region and in my neck. I was invited to Stretch through a workshop. Before Stretch, I had trouble sitting in a chair for hours, standing in one place for a long period of time, and even waking up in the morning was difficult because of the pain. Now I am able to do exercises to prevent pain, I can even go to the gym, and sit and stand without pain. I really didn’t want to leave, but I know that I needed to move on. Everyone has been so kind, so caring and extremely knowledgeable. I truly love everyone here and I will stay in touch. Thanks Stretch!
I had been experiencing back pain for a long period of time, but after moving to a different home, it increased to the point of interference with my sleep, and daily functions. The sciatica, low back pain was awful and I knew that I was also out of shape, and didn’t even know where to begin. Doing simple exercises seemed to make everything worse. I happened to see an ad on our local “Nextdoor” app asking: “Are you suffering from back pain and Sciatica?” offering a free seminar at Stretch Physical Therapy. Attending the seminar, and subsequent therapy sessions was the best decision I ever made! Staff has been great throughout the entire process. I have had a few setbacks, but they continued to encourage me to work through them, and results will be gained. Prior to this treatment, I was unable to carry laundry basket, ride in cars for any length of time, and do any exercises to help prevent the dreaded weight gain. Prior to discharge they increased the difficulty of the exercises to ensure that I truly will be able to resume exercises in a safe manner, and to avoid potential injuries.
I fractured my L1 vertebrae and was having pain for a little over 3 and a ½ months before I came to Stretch. I started to wear a brace for the pain, when my physician recommended physical therapy. I had a hard time doing everything without having or using assistance. It was hard for me to shower, get dressed, even harder to walk and stand because of the fracture. When I came to Stretch, I came with the intention of regaining my strength from wearing a brace since my fracture. Stretch PT is so much more advanced than other Physical therapists I have been to in the past. If you try Stretch PT, you will definitely see the difference.
