Before starting PT, i was in SO MUCH pain in my lower back. My pain management doctor recommended PT since I prefer to not take pain meds. At first, the process seemed slow to relieve my pain, but after PT 2 times a week, I'm feeling so much better. Shawn & Dadra with assistance from Julia, worked with me patiently, but consistently, on strength exercises geared to help my lower back. I'm a very happy and (almost) pain free patient.
"This is my third year with a broken bone and physical therapy at Southwest Rehab. The staff is amazing and friendly and I have completely recovered each time. I recommend SW Rehab to anyone requiring physical therapy."
"I had a lumbar laminectomy due to spinal stenosis. I suffered with low back pain for year. When I started therapy I was in a lot of pain. The therapists and techs were so helpful and patient with me. My core was very weak when I started and slowly with therapy it became stronger. I know I still have more recovery to do but I am so thankful for physical therapy. Everyoe here was so friendly and helpful. I appreciate all that was done to help me recover."
"My experience here at Southwest was really enjoyable. All the staff made me feel welcomed and helped motivate me to get better. They helped push me when I didn’t want to do the exercises that were difficult, like squats. When I first came in my squat form was terrible and I was embarrassed. With the help of the therapists, my form got better and better every time I came in and I started getting a lot of my confidence back. My muscles were really tight and I wasn’t flexible at all but now I can move easier and feel more comfortable. I really appreciate how much I was helped and how much I have improved. Big thank you to everyone who helped, especially Katie who made me work hard and pushed me constantly."
"When I started PT two months ago, I couldn't walk, stand or move my left ankle or foot for more than 20 minutes. Now thanks to the wonderful staff at Southwest Rehab I am able to do more activities and I can move my ankle. I would like to thank everyone at Southwest Rehab, you all are amazing and you have helped me get my life back."
"I came to Southwest Rehab after hearing from people it was the place to be. I had a diagnosis of early Parkinson Disease and was wanting to learn how to manage the condition with therapy and exercise. The therapy looked very simple at first but was very challenging. I found two very understanding and caring therapists with Heather and Dadra. They showed me exercises that could help me at home. they both went the extra mile for me and I appreciated them so much. I would recommend SW Rehab highly. I also found the staff very pleasant and it was a joy to come to therapy every week."
"When I came in, I had limited range of motion in my right knee. After my first session, I noticed the difference immediately. All the therapists I worked with followed the plan designed for me and improvements happened everyday even on non-therapy days. The attention to detail from the staff played a major role in my rehabilitation. I am sincerely grateful to the staff at Southwest Rehab."
"Although the pain and neuropathy in my right hand has not abated, the hand is much stronger. I can open jars more easily and cane write much better than before I began therapy. The staff here has been terrific - pleasant, professional and most helpful."
When I started Physical therapy, I was in severe pain. When I attended my first session, I thought my therapist was nuts when she told me what I would be doing by the end of my sessions. I am amazed at the movement I have now and the flexibility that I have not had in 40 years. I am actually doing the exercises at home, which I have never done. Katie has made me look forward to doing the workouts at home. Best therapy I have ever had, and I have been in a few.
After falling on Telegraph Pass and injuring my hamstring, I was referred to SW Rehab. When my treatment began, I had a lot of pain, swelling, and bruising– sitting, squatting and bending over were difficult. Icing, heating, home exercises and PT resulted in progressing to a point of no pain and ability to resume all former activities. An additional three weeks of strength-building and I feel almost 100%. I’m planning to return to the Pass next week, thanks to the great and caring professionals at SW Rehab.
I was hesitant to begin physical therapy because of past experiences at other organizations, but after receiving recommendations from other clients, I decided to enroll in Southwest Rehab. I worked with Katie Wilson and one other therapist throughout my therapy and feel now that this experience completely reverses my concerns. Katie was focused on my concerns and worked during each session on a planned approach to improve my physical ability to achieve my goals. The other staff members and owner were encouraging and presented a caring and involved interest in my progress.
Katie wasn’t an easy task master. She made me work to improve each session and with success in small steps I was able to achieve my stated goals. Thank you Katie and Southwest Rehab, you have change my feelings about what Physical Therapy in the right hands can accomplish.
I have been blessed while coming here to Southwest Rehab. The staff went out of their way to make sure I was receiving the best of care, physically and emotionally. Some days it was really difficult, but their positive attitude and energy kept me going. I will miss them all. Thank you and God Bless you, my friends.
Words can’t explain how thankful I am. The staff here has supported my recovery 110%. I couldn’t have done it without them. After surgery I wasn’t able to walk, squat or do any leg exercises and now I am running and hitting weighted exercises.
Thank you for all your support!
I simply cannot say sufficiently appreciative things about Heather and Dadra. The expertise and interest they brought to the table were most beneficial. They not only knew how to make me better, they cared that I actually was getting better.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
I came to Southwest Rehab because of pain in my hip and lower back. I have learned the skills to exercise, to stretch those muscles and also balancing. The staff is always on time and Shawn explains in detail how and what the exercise is for. Julia and Dadra have also been there to help me. Now I am committed to continue at home :)
After surgery I was expecting to be in too much pain to do PT. But the team here explained the exercises and stretches before starting them. They made them easy to understand and helped me push myself to work harder here and at home. It has been a great experience and I will miss our sessions together.
My experience here was great. The staff listened and took there time teaching me what to do and I will recommend this rehab to everyone I know. This is my second time being here and I requested to come here due to the quality of work they did and continue to do.
I couldn't bend to pick things up off the floor or out of the oven without falling. My balance was very poor. I can now do most of the things my muscles wouldn't let me do before therapy. This makes my everyday lift easier to deal with, I can now do chores, get dressed and go shopping etc. Thank you!
I had a very good experience with my therapy. This is my second session of therapy and both have been very good and I feel much better after each session. The staff is very nice and helpful with my ailments.
When I first came to therapy, my knee hurt a lot. I ended up having surgery and have been coming here for six months. At first my knee always hurt and I thought it was never going to get better but after all of the amazing physical therapists help I am doing great now and back to playing soccer!
Thank you all for your help!
I began with moderate to severe pain in my right hip from bursitis. I underwent 10 PT sessions over 6 weeks with Shawn directing, Dadra assisting and Julia supporting. By completion of the PT sessions all pain was gone and my balance was improved, a benefit I did not expect. All of my therapists were very considerate and professional in all their interactions with me. Perhaps best of all, they have given me a set of exercises which I can (and will) use to maintain lower body health and keep my balance dependable as I age.
