"I just wanted to say thanks for all the help and advice with my hip/glute/hamstrings this past winter. A few weeks ago I ran the Sawtooth Relay and it was great!"

K. Romito

“Thank you so much for your hard work and guidance with my knee. You are a very good Physical Therapist and very easy to understand and follow. Also, many thanks for the balance referrals.”

A. Tuthill

"It was such a pleasure getting to do PT at Thrive! It's almost bittersweet, of course nobody wants to need physical therapy, but I legitimately enjoyed the visits and feel like I made great progress. A few years ago I had a different surgery and had a round of PT, but this was so much better. If I ever need PT again, I will certainly be back and would gladly recommend it to anyone."
