Testimonials

“I think Peggy was more effective than any doctor, pills, or shots. I enjoyed her so much!”

LINDA S.

“Peggy was an amazing therapist. She listened, answered all questions and best of all, got me back on the road to an active life!”

ANN W.

“Peggy was great to work with and educational on the proper movements. I would highly recommend her.”

TED A. 

Peggy is the best PT I have ever had.  She looks at more than the problem area, rather she is able to evaluate the overall movement, function, and how one thing affects another, and then gets to the source of the problem.  For instance, I was always presenting with knee pain brought on by arthritis. But Peggy also found that my hips and back were not aligned properly and worked with me to correct those issue, and as a result, I have had less knee pain now that I have had over the last 10-15 years.”
