Nicole at Union Street has been helping me with hip, back, and neck problems. She is miraculous! I was barely walking when I started with her in October. Now I am about to resume ballet. It is a long, slow process and includes lots of 'homework' if you want to make progress. The people I meet there are most congenial. I highly recommend her for physical therapy of any kind. She is very professional and knowledgable.
Following shoulder surgery, I began physical therapy with Boris, and over the next few months saw steady improvement as he and his staff helped me get back to normal. He knows what he's doing, can explain it clearly, has a warm and pleasant manner, and has a caring, well-trained team. I would highly recommend Park Sports.
Very comfortable and relaxed atmosphere, fits well in the neighborhood. Received lots of one on one attention and they're very willing to work with your schedule. Accepts workers comp.
