IN LIFE THERE ARE NO WALLS, ONLY HURDLES.
At ATP Physical Therapy we embrace the individuality and uniqueness of each of our clients. We understand that each client comes to us with their own burdens and strive to teach resiliency so that when faced with a perceived "wall" our clients have the understanding to navigate these obstacles to find an alternate route to their goals.
We strive to not only treat, but educate towards independence so that our clients leave confident in their ability to return to their hobbies, passions, or sport of choice.
I recommend James to all my friends!
He helped me recover from a situation that had me in pain with every move. He is extremely knowledgeable, compassionate, caring and kept me focused for a full recovery.
I've since continued to work with him towards strength and weight loss goals.
James helped coach me through persistent shoulder & knee pain that others had been unable to address. He is always attentive and detailed in his assessments.
He pushed me towards new found confidence and strength all the while managing pain through intelligent programming.
James was my pre- and post-operative PT for my spinal fusion surgery (L3-L4). While my surgeon set the stage for my recovery to health, it was James’ intuitive, compassionate, and knowledgeable approach that took me across the finish line.
He has returned my body back to full functionality and made me a better version of myself.
He has my highest recommendation.
