I brought my 3-year-old son to Premier Physical Therapy after he suffered a broken elbow. He received 5 weeks of therapy under their expert care. I found each and every staff member that I encountered to be extremely competent and professional. They truly went the extra mile to make my son feel at ease while being treated. I never would have guessed that the hard work of physical therapy would actually become a positive experience that my 3-year-old looked forward to! Through Premier's outstanding treatment, my son's elbow is completely rehabilitated with his range of motion back to normal. Premier Physical Therapy, thank you so much for the exceptional care that you provide!
I recently completed a program of orthopedic therapy from Premier after a bi-lateral TKR (replacement of both knees) earlier this year. The therapy I received was first class. My therapist was highly trained and a pleasure to work with, and the Premier facilities were much better than others I had considered. Needless to say, the therapy I received was completely successful and both I and my surgeon were very pleased with the result. I highly recommend Premier for anyone considering physical therapy. As a final note, I might add that I�ll be skiing again with my family next week in Colorado!
I would like to thank the therapists at Premier Physical Therapy at St. Lucie West for being a vital part of my physical recovery from a stroke that I had in February 2010. Kelly Hadley and Tanesha Upton are outstanding therapists that went above and beyond to make me stronger and more determined to overcome my balance issues. In two months time, they helped me to strengthen my core which gave me more stability and physical stamina that I lacked after the stroke. They have inspired me to make exercise a daily part of my life in order to reach my goal of peak physical fitness and health. Never give up! With many thanks and deep gratitiude,
