“Coming to EPT about three times a week has helped me tremendously since having a major stroke in December of 2012. Without the guidance of the PT’s here and their staff’s encouragement, I would probably have given up. Using the equipment helps my mobility and being around the people at EPT gives me a boost in mental outlook. Thanks is just not enough”

“I had lower back pain- from L1 & L2 discs. I went to Elkins Physical Therapy and they set-up a strengthening program of exercises. After five to six weeks my pain has left. I’m stronger in my lower back and they increased the strength around my problem area. I’m back to being my old self again. The staff is great, and everyone is and has been so helpful in my recovery. I now have knowledge as to how to stay in shape.”

“ I was referred to Elkins Physical Therapy and Sports Injury Clinic following an auto accident. I found the staff to be knowledgeable, caring, friendly, and patient. Awesome place! Awesome staff! Thank you all!”

“My physician referred me to Elkins Physical Therapy to treat a rotator cuff injury. I am right-handed and at the time, could not comb my hair or brush my teeth without using my left hand to prop up my right arm. I found the facilities and equipment modern and from the beginning the EPT staff showed me their training and knowledge were up to date. They were also persistent…and encouraging.

About the time that I had reached maximum recovery, I managed to fall eight feet from an opening in a hallway ceiling where I was installing a set of retractable stairs. I re-injured my right shoulder. I banged up my left foot and I hurt my lower back. I was the talk of the ER that night.

I was still in a maintenance program at EPT. When I came in after the fall, the staff knew me well enough to be amused by my “relapse”. They set out much determination to get me back where I was before the fall. It only took about eight weeks.
I plan to continue working with EPT staff and their excellent maintenance therapy program.”

-Ed S.

“The staff at Elkins Physical Therapy are among the best! I have recently been going there due to a knee injury and I can honestly say that everyone from the receptionist to each physical therapist working there is truly remarkable. They care for each of their patients in a way that is very impressive. It threw me for a loop when the receptionist greeted me at the desk on my second visit and each visit since, with the greeting of the day and my first name. This shows they care about who walks in the front door. My physical therapist, Vanessa, is great. She takes the time to explain things and shows a genuine concern in making sure that my knee is getting better. She makes each visit a little more challenging then the last one but I do appreciate it because without her knowledge and talents I wouldn’t be getting better. So thank you, Vanessa. Also, thanks to the other physical therapists because they too have been kind and helpful if I had a question or needed help with something.”

-George P.

“The best in PT”

“I can’t say enough good things about my therapy with Vanessa for a frozen shoulder. After working with her for a little over a month, I have my life back.

“I got into a devastating accident and was busted up pretty badly. One of my main injuries was a broken femur (thigh bone) in 2 places. During early home therapy I stressed another fracture, breaking it for a 3rd time. I then was sent to EPT where these highly skilled and very patient therapists took over and got me back on my feet and eventually back to work, I love these guys. Great job and thank you all!”
