    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.

  • Carousel Physical Therapy
    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.

    I have been very pleased with Carousel. They have a great staff, they meet you with a smile- make you feel good even if you're down. 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!
