I was experiencing pretty bad shoulder pain for several months before finally scheduling an appointment with Krina (this was my first time going to PT). She was able to quickly discover the area that was causing me pain and immediately providedtreatment and exercises that helped me feel better. After a few weeks of appointments, my shoulder was (and still is) pain free. Krina was awesome and she's also super nice- highly recommend her!

Krina was fantastic, took the time to explain my shoulder issue and talk about realistic outcomes with therapy. More importantly, the exercises and treatments she planned out for me seem to go far and above the average PT place-- I've hadmany injuries over the years and PT usually consists of a table with 10 other people in the room doing basic exercises you can probably do at home. Krina's treatments are private and one-on-one and she is incorporating a basic PT foundation with fun stuff like pilates for strength and yoga for flexibility. Great therapist, great facilities, great front desk.
