I was in pain due to lateral epicondylitis. With the staff’s help, I am about 98% better! Everyone had excellent suggestions and were very gentle & thorough. I have been completely satisfied with every visit. Thank you all very much.

Therapy has helped me to eliminate almost all of the nerve sensations down my right arm and my neck mobility has increased. The irritation between my shoulder blades has decreased. I am able to sleep much better and perform everyday tasks without symptomes.

PT has helped me recover physical strength reduced by a long surgical recovery period. It has also addressed the issues of mastectomy surgery itself: swelling, scar tissue, tightness & mobility of the arm and shoulder. I have a list of exercises to continue after therapy has been completed. I highly recommend PT after mastectomy.

My rotator muscles and tendon strain didn’t allow my normal work to continue. My range has vastly increased and I am able to work with modified abilities and limited lifting. Summit has been the key to my quicker recovery and regained mobility.

This was the most productive therapy experience I have ever had. Andy has the ability to feel the myofascial layers to apply the ASTYM Technique effectively. The results have been so appreciated! He thoughtfully addressed me to include back and shoulder factors which also contribute to my problems. Highly recommend this place in every way!

But everyday stress acts differently, new research shows. It can push dopamine levels down, making pain feel worse […]
