Michael, Two Back Surgeries!
I came to Auburn Sports Physical Therapy following my second back surgery. I was still limited in the physical activities I could perform and did not want to have another surgery. I knew I needed help to improve my core. The staff at ASPT helped to built my core muscles and remove the sciatic pain in my right leg. They taught me how to exercise correctly and maintain my core strength to prevent future injury. I really appreciated the helpful attitudes of everyone at the clinic and the T-shirt given to me as a "graduation gift." Now, I have been able to return to activities I enjoy such as golf, walking long distances, and swimming without back or leg pain at all! I have recommended your clinic to many of our friends and even my son has been helped by your care.
Colby O. - Low Back Pain
Seven years ago I hurt my back while training for the Seattle to Portland bike race. Ever since that day I have experienced excruciating pain while cycling, running, and doing anything active. There were days that I had pain while standing, sitting and completing basic tasks. At the time of injury I saw doctors and physical therapists but nothing seemed to improve the pain or really address the underlying issue. After months of therapy with no improvement, I assumed I would just have to live with this pain for the rest of my life.
Fast forward 7 years and I decided to seek out help once more because the pain was limiting my entire life, including playing with my two young boys. Several people recommended that I speak to Joel and I am so happy I did. Joel and the staff at Auburn Sports Physical Therapy have completely changed my life. After a few short weeks I was already seeing major improvement. There were days that I had no post workout pain at all. As the weeks went on, the pain became more infrequent and now I am back to exercising 6 days a week completely pain free. Those workouts even consist of cycling, which is an activity I didn’t think I’d ever be able to do again. Thanks to Joel, I can.
I have been very impressed with the professional and personal attention from the entire staff at Auburn Sports and Physical Therapy. I was excited for every appointment because I knew that I would walk out with more questions answered and more knowledge of how to improve for the future. This is one thing that I value the most out of my experience working with Joel, the education. Not only did he help alleviate pain and increase strength and flexibility during my appointments, but Joel gave me the tools to continue that work on my own for the rest of my life.
Larry., Shoulder pain
The staff at ASPT have been wonderful. My shoulder is so much better & I was discharged! The staff kept my spirits up and kept me inspired to work through the process. I never felt it wasn't worth it and never dreaded my appointments. Keep up the good work!
Kellen K., Elbow Injury
“My first experience with Auburn Sports Physical Therapy (ASPT) came in my junior year of high school. Midway through the baseball season, I injured my elbow—preventing me from pitching on an Auburn team that was sure to make a deep run into the playoffs. As an important pitcher for the team, I searched for anyone that could provide a rehabilitation program that might help me return to the team.
When I discovered Joel Johnson and his staff at ASPT, I knew I had found my only chance. They were flexible with my busy schedule and offered personal attention unlike any others. With only a few short weeks of rehab, I was able to start in the state semifinals at Safeco Field—a highlight of my high school career. And the commitment did not stop there. I continued to visit Joel and his incredible staff through the summer and entered my senior football season as quarterback with my arm stronger than ever.
Since that experience, several of my teammates chose ASPT for various injuries, and they all have returned with great reports. I am now a sophomore on the baseball team at Stanford University; I continue to visit Joel to ensure I get the best care and to maximize my potential on the baseball field. Without any hesitation, I recommend ASPT to anyone who is dealing with an injury that needs fast and reliable results.
My experience at ASPT was excellent. I was treated with warmth and respect from the beginning, and it quickly became clear that the trained and professional staff takes a personal interest in each and every patient. I absolutely recommend ASPT to anyone! Mysincere thanks to the ASPT staff, especially Joel, for aiding in my recovery through a difficult time."
Charlie P., Injured Both Ankles
“I injured both of my ankles water-skiing. My ankles are stronger and are much better after coming to Lakeland Sports and Spine Physical Therapy. I understand how to exercise and stretch, and I continue to increase strength and range of motion thanks to the knowledgeable and incredible physical therapists at Lakeland. I am 52 and have always been active in sports, mostly water-skiing and snow skiing. I have had my share of injuries and physical therapy, and Lakeland is one of the best programs I have experienced. I am back water and snow skiing thanks to Lakeland Sports and Spine Physical Therapy.”
Amanda F., Rotator Cuff Repair
“I’ve gotten so much stronger. My shoulder feels less tension and stress. And they (LSSPT) got me back on the ball field in no time after my surgery. The employees are so great and caring and I have gotten to know them on a personal level.”
John K., Two Shoulder Surgeries
“I have had two shoulder surgeries and a knee replacement. For most of the last 18 months the outstanding staff at LSSPT has treated me. Physical therapy can be slow and painful, but LSSPT’s knowledgeable and caring staff made my recovery quick and comfortable as possible. The staff helped me to understand why I was doing the things I was doing to get better and discussed these things in a language I could understand. LSPPT is the best!”
Sharon K., Ankle Injury
“I broke my ankle in three places: on each side and in the back. Two surgeries, two plates and nine screws later, I had to learn to walk again. I went to LSSPT expecting to be given some exercises to do while I was at the clinic and at home. To my surprise and much satisfaction, I never expected to have such hands on therapy. My therapist made me work hard. My therapist stretched and manipulated my ankle. This wonderful treatment was nothing I had ever experienced at any PT clinic before.
My family and I all go to LSSPT. I am very impressed and pleased with the high level of care and service the clinic offers. The loving and caring staff does many of the exercises with me. When I get frustrated or discouraged, the therapists remind me how far I have come. From the time you walk in the door until the time you leave, all of the employees at LSSPT are friendly, encouraging, helpful and ALWAYS professional. I know without a doubt that if I had gone some other place than LSSPT, I would not be walking as well as I am today! My experience at LSSPT has been nothing but positive. I tell everyone I know about the wonderful, caring and professional staff there."
Dellena L., Shoulder Injury
“My physical therapy experience was very positive and enjoyable at Lakeland Sports and Spine Physical Therapy (LSSPT). I had PT at another clinic for four months before I came to LSSPT. I felt I got further in just a month from the excellent staff and wonderful care I received at LSSPT than four months at the other PT clinic. My experience was so positive at Lakeland; Nancy is so positive and gives me hope. You do not know how much it means to feel that someone understands and really cares. I highly recommend LSSPT to everyone!”
Eddie U., Shoulder Surgery
“Joel and the staff at RSSPT helped me achieve a very positive outcome from my shoulder surgery. I especially liked the progression of starting slow and getting harder with each visit. It is good to have someone who cracked the whip and challenged me. Thanks to RSSPT, I am back to normal. I highly recommend RSSPT to everyone”
Jerry B., Spine Injury
“My experience at LSSPT was excellent. I was treated with warmth and respect from the beginning, and it quickly became clear that the trained and professional staff takes a personal interest in each and every patient. I absolutely recommend LSSPT to anyone! My sincere thanks to the LSSPT staff, especially Nancy, for aiding in my recovery through a difficult time.”
Elisa L., Low Back Pain
"Who would think going to physical therapy would be fun. I appreciate all of the personal care and attention I received at Renton Sports and Spine Physical Therapy (RSSPT). I also appreciate getting better. I highly recommend RSSPT to anyone who needs physical therapy. My therapy has been much more focused and friendlier than the last time I had to have physical therapy."
