Arm Physical Therapy
What a fantastic PT Josh is. I followed him from his previous work place as there is no one that takes care of you better than Josh. Kudos to Therapydia. Hurt? Bad knee? Sore shoulder? The folks at Therapydia can make you better. Don’t delay call them and be on the road to getting well.
I was extremely pleased with everything about my experience at TherapyDIA Denver. I have some complicated medical issues related to arthritis and my musculature, and Casey was superb in absorbing this information and integrating it into my treatment plan. He treated my sprained rotator cuff through a variety of techniques, all of which proved very beneficial. Casey even reached out to my personal trainer to provide information as to how I could adapt exercises during my recovery period. I recovered from the injury quicker than I expected because of Casey’s prowess and knowledge. Fingers crossed – no more injuries for me – but if they do occur, I know where to go to get back in action!
I served more than 20 years on active duty in the U.S. Army. During that time I sustained numerous physical injuries. After retiring from the Army, I have seen several physical therapists but have not experienced positive results. Casey McNitt is the first physical therapist that I have met who understands the body and truly knows what types of therapy methods and techniques are necessary to create positive results. As a result of Casey’s skills and abilities, my range of motion has significantly increased and my pain level has significantly decreased.
