WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

Aaron was great. He provided guidance on how quickly to expect recovery in stages, with useful information on what symptoms and improvements to expect along the way. He was knowledgeable, friendly, and interested in making the visits productive and efficient.

Tim S.

"I arrived at MoveMend with painful “Lateral Epicondylitis” (also known as tennis elbow) and I left with a rejuvenated elbow. Aaron and Joel are great to work with and they provide information, therapy, guidance and an effective remediation plan. Therapy was organized around my schedule and Aaron and Joel provided exercises to do at home. All together a 5- star positive experience!"

Jeanne T.

I had a wonderful experience with Aaron, Joel and the MoveMend team. They helped diagnose my tennis elbow and guided me through therapy that was customized as needed to help support my healing journey. The entire team brings a positive energy to the space.

Stacey D.

"...after 2 months with Carly I am feeling strong, am skiing again, and have gotten very focused attention toward stabilizing my knee. I have faith in PT and MoveMend. Thank You!"

Kathryn S.

Carly was a pleasure to work with. She's intuitive, caring, and knowledgeable. My recovery has been great and I feel better prepared to prevent future injuries.

David S.

"I am not sure if there exists a place like MoveMend. Some clinics are just happy if you heal to the point where you aren't in pain, but MoveMend will work to get you to where you can do the things you enjoy the most."
