  • Don Thomas

    After 40 years, 8 surgeries, and a recent injury, I have finally met the team that could help me regain my strength, flexibility and balance. This gives me new confidence to remain active so I can enjoy my favorite activities.

    Thank you Sarah and Taylor for taking the time to find my weaknesses and help me through the work. All the best!

  • Sue Doherty

    My experience with Superior PT has been great. In the beginning I had difficulty walking more than a half a mile. Sitting for any period of time plus additional knee pain due to the arthritis in my hip.

    Over the twelve weeks of PT, in addition to my home exercises, which are short videos, I am able to go back to walking two miles at least four times a week, plus the knee pain is a rare occurrence.

    Megan and Rachel were wonderful to work with during my visits. They reminded me to slow down and do the exercises correctly in order to get the optimal benefit. I am ready to take my trip and carry my “tool box” of exercises with me so that I do not regress.

    Thank you for reducing my pain and getting me back to almost normal. The rest is up to me.

  • Patricia Parkhurst

    I had an awesome experience at Superior. Both Taylor and Rachel listened to me, figured out where my problems were and addressed them right away. I love the idea of having personalized videos of all of my exercises so that I can continue with my recovery. I’m so happy that I’m pain-free! Thanks again!!

  • Andrew Farkas

    Before I received physical therapy at Superior, my right shoulder was causing so much pain and discomfort that I was unable to work. Because of Taylor and Kaylee’s incredible expertise and therapy, my pain has significantly diminished. I am now back to work! I cannot say enough nice things about the professionalism and skill of these two wonderful people!

  • Jennifer Ludwig

    I had always hear other people complain about going to PT, describing it at best as an inconvenience. I was nervous about going because I feared my back pain’s root cause was the fused left ankle I was born with, and that there would not be a way to improve the problem.

    After meeting with Taylor for the first time, she said, “Of course your situation is not hopeless! There are always things we can do to help.” This brought tears to my eyes, because I had been in pain for years – much longer than my recent extreme back pain.

    Taylor prescribed 14 sessions of PT and to my astonishment, after 2 or 3 sessions, I began experiencing relief of my excruciating back pain. As our time progressed, not only was my back pain completely gone, I began to see mobility improvement in many other parts of my life. I am moving now in ways I haven’t been able to in years.

  • Deb Johnson

    “When I first came to Superior PT, I had very little mobility and pain with anything overhead or lying on my right side. After working with the 2 Andrew’s I can sleep on my right side, reach overhead without pain and most importantly…look through an entire upper rack of clothing without burning pain! It was definitely worth the drive to Traverse City from Lake Leelanau twice a week. I’ll miss seeing you! Drew! P.S. Drew made coming in fun! His big smile and cheerful attitude made me almost forget I was working hard. “

  • Charlene Miller

    I was having constant pain in my right hip, no matter what my activities. Rachel and Sarah were able to develop a program of stretches and movement for me. We scheduled ten sessions, but I made such good progress that we were able to shorten my sessions to seven. I went from a pain level of seven to a level of one. Thank you so much for your assistance!

  • Mike Acton

    I was very stiff and not flexible in my mid-back and hips. I feel normal and flexible again. Very happy with the treatment. I truly believe in applied functional science for physical therapy. Can’t thank you enough Alex!
