August 23, 2017

I have always been greeted with a smile. I appreciate the concern the staff had about my care. I worked with Renee and Vivian mostly. On my first appointment I could hardly walk or even drive. As I left my last appointment I contemplated going for a light jog when I got home! They definitely know what they are doing and I learned so much from them about muscles and how they function. I intend on recommending anyone I know to your clinic when they need it, because I know they will get the honest, sincere care they need! Thanks for making me better and a lot stronger!"

August 23, 2017

With this being my first pregnancy, all the aches and pains were new to me. My back pain was the worst, keeping me up at night!

Thanks so much guys!!"

August 23, 2017

I am grateful that I went to physical therapy in Andover. All of the therapists and therapist assistants were involved with healing the bursitis in my shoulder. They were so professional and effective besides so friendly and encouraging. The techniques and exercises they taught me have given the guidance and confidence that I will continue to improve. The atmosphere at Andover is so welcoming by all the personnel from Jean in the front to Paige, Kallie, Kerra, and even Gary! Thank you!"

August 23, 2017

August 23, 2017

I had never previously had any back issues, and had a deep muscle spasm in my lower back that put me out of commission for nearly 3 weeks before I could even walk decently. Once I could drive again, I came here to begin PT. The first 3 weeks were tough and I was in pain, but the staff and PT were fantastic with adjusting to my needs and capabilities. After about 3 weeks, I had a breakthrough and started seeing progress quickly. Every one of the PTs and Jean were so friendly and helpful. It almost makes me sad to be done. Thank you so much for everything."

August 23, 2017

When I initially come in to Zimmerman PT-the secretary told be it would be over a week before I could get in. Along came Renee and she squeezed me in the following day! I have been seen here for almost 2 months and have gone from having pain and spasms and difficulty doing daily routines, to being able to do everything I could do before. Viv is awesome and even her "made up" exercises have worked wonders. Thanks to both Renee and Viv-without you I'd never made such huge improvements! Thank you!!"

August 23, 2017

I am certain that PT in Zimmerman is who made the difference for my quick recovery from a full right knee replacement. Your personnel and therapists exhibited both knowledge and empathy for me as an individual for what I personally needed for the quickest recovery. Everyone I worked with was pleasant, friendly, and willing to accomodate to provide the best plan to heal correctly and completely with flexibility, a great sense of humor, and just plain Minnesota nice. I will return to your facility for any future PT needed, and will recommend your facility without question! Thank you no only for you expertise, but for your caring attitudes!!"

August 23, 2017

When I first came in to Physical Therapy, I was worried it would not work due to the fact that I had been seeing a chiropractor for months and saw little improvement. I was extremely surprised when I began to see improvement almost immediately, and am satisfied that I chose to go to Zimmerman Physical Therapy, because not only were the results great, but they were all welcoming and kind."

I am a believer in physical therapy and believe in the staff at Physical Therapy Consultants. You are amazing! Thanks."

I thought my pain was due to a sprained foot and overworking-so I shrugged it off until I had sharp pain in my back from pushing the gas pedal. Karen was a guiding light for me after a few doctor appts and bad visits to another physical therapy. She got me switched over and set up with no issues. :). My first appt was with Renee and she gave me hope and knowledge. My main therapist was Vivian and she is a miracle worker! I had up and downs through therapy, because I am a little impatient but she was steadfast on my progress.  Thank Goodness, because my life needed to keep going and not stop. I can't recommend this place enough! I wish I would have found them sooner. I feel like they are my friends and I'm going to miss them. Thank you for making me better :)!!!"

When I started Physical Therapy my shoulder was so tender and my mobility was severely restricted. I couldn't get my garden in on time, ride my bike, do yoga or water aerobics-anything that involved my shoulder.

The stretching and strength building exercises, the therapists at Physical Therapy Consultants have taught me have restored my active lifestyle."

August 23, 2017

Scheduling the first Physical Therapy appointment was the hardest. I didn't think therapy would make that much difference in my case and who wants to give up their time.  I was so wrong.

Gary August 23, 2017

I came to physical therapy after more than a year of plantar fascitis pain. The pain stopped me from doing any of my normal life activity.  The team at phyiscal therapy went over the top in helping get better. They listened well to my situation and pain levels, performed massage, ultrasound, and ionto patch therapy. They challenged me with the appropriate stretching and exercise plan. Each week I was a little better. Pain went from high levels all day long to 0-1. My foot flex went from 0º to 15º on my right and 12º on my left. Bre, Chad, Bill and Tessa were instrumental in my care. Also Melissa was a bright light managing the front desk, scheduling my appointment and reminder calls. Physical Therapy Consultants is a great place to get well!!"

My name is Bridgette, I was experiencing some vertigo on and off for about a week.

August 16, 2017

I went to Andover PT because it's location was so convenient. I was experiencing a great deal of pain in my arm at night. From the first visit, my arm began to feel better and as the weeks progressed the pain at night completely disappeared. The combination of wonderful massage and exercise coaching not only did the trick on one arm, but improved range of motion in the other arm and my neck. The staff, from the front door to the back was welcoming, obviously knowledgeable, and graciously put up with my whining (which was intended to tease) and bad jokes. Their attitude really motivated me to do the suggested exercises event when I escaped from their clutches. I intend to include them in every day! I can't thank you enough and will sincerely recommend your quality work to anyone who is interested."

July 23, 2017

Connie Andover Physical Therapy August 16, 2017
