When I first came to Rock Run it was just after ankle surgery and six weeks non-weight bearing. I was very unsure about how strong my ankle was because of past injuries. Rock Run helped me gain confidence in my ankle having me do all types of exercises that tested my ankle and showed me it was stronger than it has ever been. I am now able to for long walks, jogs and ride my bike all of which I could not do even before my surgery. I am confident that as I continue to do exercise to strengthen my calf muscles. I will be able to run. Thank you to Brandon and staff at Rock Run you are the best!Hilarie 2017
Brandon, Josh and Kim were all extremely professional and knowledgeable they helped me with a lot of issues. Right knee surgery, low back pain and right tennis elbow and trigger thumb. Brandon was able to help me to strengthen my muscles to the point I no longer have pain going down stairs my back went out on me and helped me to bounce back and decrease that issue than I developed tennis elbow in which I was in severe pain. Kim has extensive knowledge. I was able to decrease that pain. I was very impressed with both of their knowledge and understanding. Lisa was extremely helpful with scheduling. I am just SO pleased!Marlaine 2017
I have really enjoyed my time here. I have greatly improved since I first game here. I thought when I first came here, I would be in a lot of pain like a lot of my friends were when they did therapy. They have been great exercise the muscles needs, without making me cry. That was really important to me. Everyone has been great, friendly, polite and professional. I look forward in coming back after my right him surgery. I know they will take care of me with great results. I can walk better, bend over and movement of my left hip is better. I can also lift me left leg.Suzann 2017
Everyone who helped me on my road to knee recovery were marvelous! An awesome staff. So glad I came here to see Brandon at Rock Run. Walking with no pain after having such a bad pain is so great! Now I know what exercises to do to keep the pain away. Recommending Rock Run PT to all my friends and relatives!Christine 2017
When I came to Rock Run I was unable to walk upright because my back had been injured. While working on my back issues it became apparent my shoulder was not ok. I ended up with shoulder surgery to repair damage done in my bicep & labrum. Josh & Don & the whole crew helped me to regain movement & strength. I enjoyed working with everyone to make sure I was at my best movement and strength. I feel like with their help I became a whole different person. Thank you!Tempes 2017
I hurt my back when I was vacuuming my living room. As I was moving my sofa back in place I lost my footing and fell on my vacuum cleaner hurting my back. I came to Rock Run for therapy. The staff is great. I didn't feel like I was coming to therapy. It was like coming to see family. Thank you Rock Run!Linda 2017
When I came here I had a broken ankle and could not walk without the boot. Therapists started me on exercises that strengthened my ankle as well as my leg some of the exercises were difficult, such as balancing on one foot. In all after working with the therapists. I can now have full function of my right ankle and have no pain, which is wonderful!Anna 2017
I broke my index finger in four spots, had a plate put in to hold it together after surgery I had zero movement in my finer. I came to Kim and after a little bit he had my finger moving like I never broke it. I'm now able to work and enjoy my passion of detailing cars again. Thanks to Kim!!David 2017
My journey to Rock Run began with a search for a PT facility that would be able to help with my knee replacement. Rock Run was the only group that advertised joint replacement rehab. While Josh was my primary therapist, all of the therapists assisted in bringing my knee back, Brand and his staff have united goal and that is to see their patients succeed. Thank you to Rock Run!!Matt 2017
This is my second total knee replacement based on my experience the first time. I certainly wanted to come back here again. The staff has been totally caring and concerned about my rehab. I am so pleased with my recovery. Thanks to all for your dedication and for making my visits fun and worthwhile.Betty 2017
The group of guys and gals were great to work with. Had a lot of pain in my left knee after surgery, They worked with me for seven weeks, my knee is feeling a lot better. Hardly no pain. Had a hard time walking and going up and down stairs and sitting sometime. That's doing a lot better now. Therapy really helps!Joseph 2017
Brandon is a great physical therapist. He pushes you to excel. I'm three and a half weeks out of surgery and I am back to normal activities and no crutches or cane. I can do stairs with no problem and walk and stand for extended periods of time.Randy 201
I had fallen and my left shoulder was very painful. It went on and on. My doctor said I needed physical therapy. My balance was really bad and i was always falling and getting hurt. Since coming to Rock Run my shoulder is so much better. My balance is very good and I haven't fallen for a few months. as for my sciatic it has been so much better. My bursitis is still a little painful All in all, my experience was very favorable. Rock Run and their staff eased my pain and balance. They are awesome. Everyone here was professional and concerned about me.DeEtt 2017
I have so enjoyed my time at Rock Run Physical Therapy. I had two hip replacements. When I came here it was really hard for me to get around. They have helped me learn exercises i can do to continue to become stronger. They have been very professional, friendly, kind and knowledgeable. I don't know what I would have done without them. I would recommend them to anyone for therapySuzanne 2017
I have enjoyed being here. The people who work her are very nice and fun. I came in with balance and strength problems. My balance has improved as much. I have learned to put more weight on my toes and it makes a big difference. My strength has improved also. I would recommend this place to anyone that has the same problemsMary Jane 2017
This is my second time here, pre and post-surgery. The staff is great. Everyone is super friendly and very knowledgeable. Before and after surgery I struggle with the stairs and knee pain. After surgery I my ability to use stairs now as improved. My range of motion has improved and overall pain level decreased. They were also informative on exercises I can continue on my own outside of physical therapy visits. It has been a great experience and would return again if needed.Becky 2017
I love these people. they treat me with respect and love. I will miss them very much and will come back to use the pool. And listen to Brandon sing. I will especially miss my therapist Josh. I came in with a walker and I am leaving walking on my own two feet. I love them all very much.Yvonne 2017
I was in a bad car accident and had a brain injury and broke my left side. I stated coming to Rock Run as soon as I could put weight on my legs. They all helped me get coordination back in my left hand and helped with my strength problems and fine motor skills. I love Rock Run!Kaycee 2017
I had two shoulder surgeries and was not doing good after. After Physical Therapy it is doing great. Brandon and Amanda did an awesome job getting me back to normal. I thank them a lot. Rock RUn is a very good place to do your physical therapy.Jeff 2017
Josh and Kim have taught me more about my injuries and ow to improve than any doctors. I now only take on anti inflammatory on really busy days. My hop motion has increased measurably. My lower back pain is minimal after a busty day. Right rib only moves slightly with one motion I try to avoid. Overall two surgeries and the help from Josh and Kim has given me a chance to do many things. I thought i would never do again. Thank you to Rock Run!Jerry 2017
Wonderful Experience!! Helped me very much. Wonderful people!!Maria 2017
I am so thankful that my surgeon finally recommended Rock Run PT. From the time I walked tinto the front door, Lisa was there to greet men and help me. Before I started therapy I had problems with my knees I could hardly walk. I can't say enough about Josh and Don helped me to the point that I walk with very little pain. It was a pleasure to receive my treatment from Rock Run PT.Gary 2017
Before I came to Rock Run I was having trouble picking stuff up with my right hand. It was almost useless. I started to get treatment of ASTYM. That helped me a lot, I am able to use my thumb again. I've learned to stretch my had and wrist for better results and will continue to use it forever. I enjoyed my time at Rock Run talking about music and sports while being treated.Richard 2018

Coming to Rock Run was so wonderful! The staff truly cares for you here. I came in with terrible shoulder pain from tendinitis and was shown so many different exercises to de here or at home. By discharge, my range of motion was back to normal, my strength was way up and my pain was almost non-existent. Thank you to everyone here for all of your direction and kindness.Annette R. 2018
When I began therapy, I was skeptical but as we got into it I quite enjoyed it. The staff was professional and knew well what I needed. My strength has improved significantly. I have learned a lot about gaining strength and will continue to do what the staff here have taught me. Thanks a bunch.Douglas P. 2018

This is my second time at Rock Run, first time was for my knee and was so happy with the therapy I received that when I needed to come in for my back I knew I would get help for my lower back pain. I'm feeling better and if I ever need PT again I will be happy to come back to Rock Run.Julie L. 2018
I had to tap walls constantly and car hoods in parking lots to help keep balance - now I can walk confidently from place to place. Yahoo. No wall/car surfing. The whole experience was a physical challenge but the staff made it enjoyable! It was awesome and such a relief to be back "on balance".Donna M. 2018
My experience at RRPT was surprisingly pleasant. From the start I felt welcome, and I was given good information about what the problem with my back was and understanding of how we were going to correct it. The results were better than expected; with little to no pain and I can get back to lifting and yoga and other important aspects of my life. I could not be happier with Brenda and her entire team here.Miranda S. 2018
