"Welcoming and Professional Environment"

Christine and the staff are incredibly welcoming and professional. They strive to make you feel comfortable in an often times uncomfortable environment for many going through the recovery process. I would recommend Motion Matters to anyone, and everyone if you are recovering from an injury/surgery.

"Professional, Caring & Attentive"

First physical therapy treatment I have received. I really liked the schedule. all staff are professional, caring and attentive. I had visits with Matt and Christine throughout my treatment and liked both therapists very much. they explained and demonstrated how to do exercises. I would highly recommend them.

"Great way to get your health back!"

I was in excruciating pain, taking hardcore pain meds and they changed everything. With guidance, I learned self-care and have improved dramatically. (no meds at all, within a few weeks)
