    They were my greatest cheerleaders and hard, but fair, taskmasters when they needed to be to ensure that I would have a full recovery. They are consummate professionals who have a wealth of tricks up their sleeves to handle any roadblock that arose during my recovery. I have had several injuries over the years that have sent me to a physical therapist's office, and nobody can hold a candle to this outstanding team of therapists.

    CPT is the only effective therapy I have ever experienced. I have had extensive surgery on most parts of my body. My shoulders (both), twice on each, then additional episodes using titanium implants. Knee surgery, once. Complete rebuilding of my left foot, hand surgery on each one, {and} surgery for spinal stenosis (5). I was sent for therapy at each event, but the therapy was poor, ineffective, etc.-I learned to help myself in each case. Carousel has been the only really effective system.

    This is the place I needed to be in order to resume my daily activities. I learned how to protect myself from injury doing the normal household duties we all do by using my body properly. If I feel that something is not quite right, I can use the techniques I have learned to alleviate the problem. As always, the staff is friendly, and very good at what they do.

    All did an excellent job with me. I have been more happy with the results I received while I was under the care of your therapists. Should I need more treatment, I would certainly call on your services again. I would also recommend your people to my friends.

The staff is very knowledgeable and know exactly what they are doing. They have helped me in so many ways. The girls out front make you feel welcome when you enter the office. I recommend people to Carousel all the time. WOW service!

    So, you were just handed a prescription for physical therapy by your doctor – who has just asked you if you have ever tried PT before, and, while asking, the first thing that crosses your mind is pain and torture.  And, since you can’t get that idea out of your head, you confess to your doc, “I’m not sure about this whole […]

    Creatively coined crepitus, one still might picture those 3-little guys sitting on the edge of the cereal bowl just waiting for the milk to smother the ingredients down at the bottom creating a symphony of, what we know to be snap-crackle-and popping. However, that symphony may not be music to your ears when your knees […]

    Ahhh-swimming; that oh-so wonderful feeling of being able to cool off on a hot day! Gliding through the water, that is 800 times denser compared to air, de-weighting us to the point where we can, somewhat, believe it brings out the child in us. And why shouldn’t it!? For most of us, we couldn’t wait to run and jump […]

    Whoever coined the title Pain & Torture in lieu of Physical Therapy must have been one not-so-happy-in-a lot-of-pain patient!  We don’t know the patient’s demographics, or injury area, to determine why those words came through their lips-but, guess what, it stuck! Now, when I’m out-and-about, I will occasionally hear, “I’m commin’ in to see you all at Carousel for my […]

    Well, it’s no secret that Physical Therapist’s are partial to conservative treatment for any non-traumatic injuries before enduring the hardships of surgical intervention. Yes, we can be your first line of treatment because it’s cheaper, and has no side effects – in most cases, of course! No doubt, some patients are hesitant to try conservative treatment first because they wanted a quick […]
