Rebound Physical Therapy

OUR PHYSICAL THERAPISTS

At Rebound, our patients' rehabilitative needs and goals are taken very seriously and personally. Our qualified physical therapists believe that by treating our patients' injuries as if they were their own, a partnership is formed, enabling our patients to reach their goals more effectively. 

By practicing this philosophy, our therapists are able to get our patients back to the quality of life they were accustomed to prior to their injury.

What should I wear to my appointment?

 

I have been playing sports, namely basketball, since I was five.  I have always had my share of bumps and bruises but  never that “big” injury, until in 2008 when I came down wrong in a basketball game and tore my ACL and MCL.  It truly was one of the scariest experiences of my life. I didn’t know if I would be able to walk right again much less play the game that I love.

 I can tell you that today, not only can I walk right, but I am back on the court and doing everything I could before my injury. The reason? Jon, Dave and Chet at Rebound Physical Therapy.  From the day I came in, just 3 days after I had torn everything, to the therapy that I started just 72 hours after surgery to the final session and my workouts today, I owe it all to Rebound.  I wouldn’t be where I am today without the guys at Rebound. From Jon, Dave and Chet to the owners, they take special care with every individual who walks through the doors. My relationship with them has extended beyond the Therapy sessions and I consider every one of them to be good friends of mine.

 I would (and have) recommended Rebound to anyone trying to come back from an injury, no matter what age or what injury. They are the best and I wish only the best for them as their company continues to grow.
