"Just want to thank you for your hard work with helping me overcome a back injury from a rear end collision last spring. I was not sure that I would recover in time for my marathon today. My 5th marathon set a new personal record! What I have learned through the physical therapy process has helped to strengthen muscles that I never knew were weak and reduce my time about 19 minutes. Special shout out to Kyle Kolkmann DPT, OCS for his help this time around." - Charles

Physical Therapist, Matt Johnson, at the Mooresville location is the best PT I’ve ever worked with. He shows great concern for how his patients are feeling, how they felt after their last PT session which I’ve never seen from a PT. He is very professional & had thorough answers to any questions and always asked if I had questions before I left a session. I made great progress working with him. Very pleasant person & made PT a more fun experience. I highly recommend him!
