Have a Question?
I started therapy at Kingston Physical Therapy after injuring both shoulders. I avoided surgery on one shoulder, and after surgery on the other the pain and stiffness were incredible. I quickly regained much of my range of motion with little or no pain. I was given everything I needed to continue my therapy at home. I always received more information from Patrick than any of the physicians.
I ruptured the biceps tendon in my left arm. An MRI revealed significant damage to the rotator cuff. An orthopedic surgeon advised me that I would eventually require an operation; in the meantime he unenthusiastically prescribed a course of physical therapy. My shoulder quickly regained strength and range of motion, and after a month I put it to the test at the driving range. To my amazement, I swung freely and comfortably and have resumed playing golf. It seems like a miracle.
An accident on the job caused a back injury so severe that surgery was the only option. The symptoms affected not only my back but my leg and required me to walk with a cane, even after surgery. After completing a rehabilitation program with Kingston Physical Therapy I’m back on the job and can honestly say that my life isn’t compromised in any way by my injuries.
I’m pleased and impressed with the physical therapy I received here, but it’s also always such a joy to come in! Everyone is so friendly and the whole experience is so social. The environment is as healing as the exercises!
I had been receiving physical therapy elsewhere and was a bit surprised at how much more intensive the rehab program was at Kingston Physical Therapy. I adapted, however, and was very pleased at how much quicker I moved along in my recovery. The folks here seem genuinely interested in not only in helping you recover, but doing so as quickly as reasonably possible.
Everyone that works there is very friendly and helpful. I have Lauren and she is very good at what she does.
Professionalism from every staff member. The place is clean and the equipment is up to date. Individual care is shown to every patient.
Noel & Karen in OT are the best!
