Thank you for giving me the opportunity to stay involved in a couple of my favorite activites. I could never get the inside of the right with the outside of the left with downhill skiing before coming to Kinetic Physical Therapy Institute.
I can’t thank you enough for the truly amazing change you have brought to my life! Since my mid-20’s I struggled with bouts of increasingly severe low back pain, making the rounds of numerous doctors, massage therapists, acupuncturists, and chiropractors in an effort to resolve it, and finding only temporary relief. Finally the episodes were so severe that, at the age of 38, I was in so much pain I couldn’t walk more than a few feet and was giving up all the things that mattered to me—long kayak trips, hiking, my work as a field biologist. My life was shrinking rapidly I left my first session w/ Carrie with tears of joy and relief running down my face—not only was my pain already better, I was overwhelmed at finally finding someone who clearly not only understood what was going on , but had a plan to remedy it. Within 18 months I relocated to Washington state where I routinely do 15-20 mile ocean paddles and multi-day trips, and long hikes in the mountains. Periodically I’m back in MN to visit family, and I always schedule a visit for a “tune up” on my exercise program. I can honestly say that the folks at Kinetic PT gave me my life back.
I just wanted to thank you for your amazing work. I struggled with my foot pain for 3 years before I saw you – and went to so many doctors, podiatrists, physical therapist, etc. all whom tried to treat my foot without looking at the rest of my body! I am so thankful that you could identify the problem and help me. Besides that, you care and attention to patients is MUCH appreciated – it is rare to see medical professionals who take the time to have such a personalized and thorough treatment.
I have been able to return to my 3 mile walks without difficulty as well as continue with my land and water aerobics combination. I also have been able to comfortably snowshoe and/or cross country ski up north on the weekends. I am so happy to be back to my routines without pain. And, I will be returning to my spring job at Bailey’s Nursery as I can walk the work line now. Thanks for all you help and support during my rehab. I very much appreciate your patience in working things through with me.
I am not sure if you got my first e-mail earlier in the summer or not, but my knee is still doing great! I played baseball all summer, and did really well. I even ended up leading the league in doubles and stolen bases for most of the sea- son, so it was awesome to get speed and mobil- ity back. I want to thank you for all the work we did together. It is really paying off. Fall baseball starts next week and I feel 100% going in. I am so relieved. I never thought it would happen; but here I am, no more worrying about playing with pain or discomfort.
As a Registered Nurse and patient; I highly recommend Kinetic Physical Therapy Institute. Whether you are recovering from an accident, healing after surgery or other debilitating illness; you want to choose the therapist who will provide the best treatment for your body, mind and spirit. As patients and consumers we have the right to choose our health care pro- viders. Choose the best. Ask your physician to refer you to Kinetic Physical Therapy Institute; you will feel the difference.
Thank you very much for helping me with my back. If I hadn’t found you, I bet I’d still be spinning circles. I think about where I was a year ago and smile at the progress we’ve made. With the help of you and Luanne, I look forward to beating this thing once and for all! Thanks!
I feel very fortunate to have been referred to Kinetic Physical Therapy Institute by my doctor. When I started treatment my function was poor. I felt terrible. I was skeptical because 15 years of past physical therapy had not given me much relief and I had never been able to follow through with any exercise. Now that has all changed. I have come a long way. Thank you!
