Her physical therapist took the time to explain how her home exercises would help during therapy and after. “I have continued using the exercises even though I have finished with my therapy.” She was happy with her therapy and everyone involved. Really excited that the exercises continue to help her with her arthritis.

I am extremely satisfied with the care and treatment that Justin, his assistant Jeff, and all the other great people at Mountain River Physical Therapy (gave me). They are knowledgeable, kind, and encouraging. When you allow them to treat you back to full health, you will not be disappointed.
… I recently used your facility for recovery from surgery on my spine. I think because of the great people there and their ability to really help and care for the patient’s needs, I was able to recover faster than normal.
Last week I was in Biloxi & Pascagoula, MS with other Wood County Habitat for Humanity folks putting new houses together… No major back or leg problems. An entire year has gone by without my needing your attention/care. I can now go up 2 flights of stairs without needing the railing.
I have done physical therapy a few times and I have never ever worked with such wonderful and kind people as you.
I can honesty say your staff and their buoyant attitudes made going to physical therapy an enjoyable and rewarding experience. I commend their professionalism and dedication to their patients.
You just can not imagine how much I appreciate you and your wisdom! If you had not found my torn patella tendon, I’d still be falling and the problem would have never been fixed!
Your smile and laughter kept my spirits high… while your expertise helped me get back on my feet. You have my thanks and gratitude for all the time you spent assisting my recovery.
