28+ 5-Star Reviews!

- Greg W

“I highly recommend Scott for your PT needs! He helped me get back to trail running in a short amount of time and gave me exercises and advice for continued success. What I appreciate the most about his approach is the depth of interview and holistic approach to understanding all of my activities, not just the calf issues that brought me to a halt. We uncovered other weaknesses and developed a long term approach to develop strength and flexibility to tackle running, biking, skiing, and lifting. He uses a great phone app to assign you exercises, demonstrate proper technique, and set reminders for your workouts, and I still use it for a refresher. Go see Scott for an evaluation and you’ll see what I’m talking about, he’s sharp, thorough, and very good at what he does.”

“Scott helped me strengthen my ankle after a bad sprain! The certain exercises he created for me and his encouragement helped me regain confidence that I could do the activities I was doing pre-sprain. I enjoy the app as well because you mark off when you complete each exercise for the day which keeps me accountable and makes me feel accomplished for the day. He helped identify what muscles were still hurt from the sprain and helped them feel better through stretching, massage, as well as one dry needling procedure. Just by doing the exercises daily and a few weekly appointments, I’m now able to do my regular HITT workouts and run with full confidence again! I highly recommend him if you have anything going on and need to get back to feeling like your regular, strong self again!”
