ONE EXCELLENT PLACE!
I had surgery on my hand and fingers and after two months my fingers were still so sensitive and painful that I could not touch them, in addition, they stayed very hot. My surgeon prescribed hand therapy.
I went to Improve PT because my husband had therapy there after surgery on his hand and did great. After just one treatment, my fingers immediately began to get better. I improved each visit and before long I had gained complete use of them and all the pain and hypersensitivity had gone away.
Improve Physical Therapy & Hand Center provided a fun, yet professional environment. Everyone was so friendly and the atmosphere was so positive that I actually enjoyed my time there. The requirements were simple, but effective.
Thank you to all the staff for your friendly help in recovering the use of my hand and fingers. Your prompt and professional attention to my treatment was exceptional. I would recommend you to anyone that needs physical therapy or hand therapy. ONE EXCELLENT PLACE!
GETTING MY LIFE BACK!!!
I could not get out of my chair or bed without assistance. I was using a walker for balance and could not bend my legs. I could not even dress myself. I was also having severe pain in my neck and could not turn my head from side-to-side. When I was referred to physical therapy by my family physician, I immediately chose Improve Physical Therapy. I had previously experienced great treatment from Todd and Tim.
After several weeks of treatment from Todd, Tim, and the staff at Improve PT I can now perform these daily activities with ease and I am now able to walk with a cane and do not have the need for a walker.
I cannot begin to express and tell you how wonderful it is to be “my ole self” again and have my independence restored. I am so grateful for Todd, Tim and the whole staff for their support, encouragement, and consistency in helping me be “whole again.” Thank you all so much!!!

BATTER UP!! CALLING ALL ATHLETES!!
I came to Improve Physical Therapy a few weeks before I left to go play college baseball. I had been having pain in my right shoulder for a few months and couldn’t throw to the level I was capable of. Mr. Warner knew exactly what the problem was and got me back to where I needed to be in no time.
It was truly an enjoyable experience. The whole staff was great to work with. I am thankful I chose them for my therapy. After months of intense pain I am completely pain-fee! I can throw with power without pain. I definitely recommend Improve PT to anyone in need of therapy.
ENJOYABLE THERAPY THAT GETS RESULTS!!!
Several months ago, I started experiencing pain in my low back and left hip. It would hurt when I would sit or stand for any length of time. I couldn’t get any relief until I started seeing Marcus at Improve PT.
He was very patient and paid attention to what I told him about the location of pain. Using various exercises and the traction machine, I could tell a positive difference in my low back after the first week.
My hip still had issues and Marcus suggested dry-needling. After one treatment I could feel the muscle tension release. It helped me tremendously within a few days. I have improved so much during my time at Improve PT.
I am thankful for Marcus. He is definitely knowledgeable and makes you feel important while you are there. The whole staff and Todd make therapy enjoyable. I am so grateful for these caring professionals and I will return there if I ever need therapy in the future.

CHRONIC KNEE PAIN – 100% Improved!!
I began treatment with Improve Physical Therapy & Hand Center at the recommendation of my orthopedic surgeon. I was diagnosed with right knee arthritis and Patella Femoral Syndrome. I had been experiencing pain for nearly a year.
I began therapy July 2019 with almost immediate response. Within 2 weeks I was walking with minimal pain and by week 3 I was pain-free. I finally felt like myself again. I am so thankful to Todd, Tim, Marcus and their staff for giving me my life back.
I almost never answer a satisfaction survey with 100% satisfaction, but this one was truly warranted. They are first rate! If I ever need therapy in future I will return to Improve PT.
~ Diana Shepard
LIFE CHANGING RESULTS!!
I would like to thank Marcus and the entire staff at Improve Physical Therapy for helping me through a very difficult and painful episode that affected my right shoulder. I had a torn and split rotator cuff, bicep and labrum. My therapist, Marcus, took the time to customize my plan of care. He continued to evaluate my progress and changed my program as needed for optimal results.
This was not a typical physical therapy office. The staff always acted in a caring, professional and fun manner. Not only did they manage my physical therapy but they offered encouragement that I needed to overcome a very discouraging time.
I was in a bad place and did not think it would get better but my excellent therapist has given me my life back. I have returned to my normal activities and I feel like I am in better shape than before my injury. I know this is a reflection of the care I received at Improve Physical Therapy. I highly recommend their services to anyone needing physical therapy.
GOOD-BYE HAND PAIN!!
I had an injury to my right hand. For over a year I’ve had problems picking stuff up and couldn’t bend my fingers very good at all.
I had tried therapy at another clinic that did not have a Certified Hand Therapist and did not improve much. I was suggest to go to Improve PT by my hand surgeon. I went hoping that they could help. All of the work with Todd and Tim really made a difference. I have more movement in my fingers and my hand pain is much less now!
I really loved going to Improve PT. They made it fun. Todd, Tim, Kim, and the whole staff really care about their patients and are so friendly. They make you feel welcome. I had an excellent experience there and if I need physical therapy or hand therapy in the future – Improve PT is where I want to go.
~ Airyonna Skinner
SHOULDER SUCCESS AGAIN & AGAIN & AGAIN – THE PLACE TO GO FOR SHOULDER THERAPY!!!
After falling and injuring my left shoulder, my doctor recommended physical therapy. She had heard lots of good things about Improve Physical Therapy and suggested that I go there. I must say I was pleasantly surprised by Todd and his team. They were all very professional, caring, and friendly.
When I first started PT, I had doubts about being able to lift my arm above my head ever again. After being discharged from PT, I am now pain-free and able to reach above my head again! I am very thankful Improve PT was recommended to me and I will pay it forward by saying they truly do care about their patients and the work they do with them.
Improve Physical Therapy gets two thumbs up for helping me regain the use of my arm again and for the pleasant atmosphere to rehab in. It was a great experience to work with a kind and caring team. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing physical therapy!
~ Sandra Tabata
IMPROVE- THE NAME SAYS IT ALL!!
I really enjoyed Improve Physical Therapy & Hand Center’s light, friendly atmosphere. Marcus Reynolds, my physical therapist, was a healthy combination of “push a little harder” and “you’re doing great”. My shoulder sessions were also tailored to me as I progressed in my recovery.
I have never had a doctor’s office that I felt was more on my side than Improve PT. Scheduling, insurance, greetings – Kim was on it – and Marcus was clear about what I was doing and why. He made adjustments based on my progress. Their facility was also always very clean and well equipped.
I would highly recommend Improve Physical Therapy & Hand Center to anyone in need of therapy.
~ Taunia Peck
At the end of December, I had a fall which resulted in left wrist pain, difficulty walking, and loss of mobility/function. I was told I needed out-patient physical therapy and was very fortunate to choose Improve Physical Therapy & Hand Center.
I cannot tell you what a pleasure it has been to work with these outstanding therapists. My mobility and strength have greatly improved and I’m almost pain-free.
I have truly enjoyed working with the well trained therapists and staff at this facility. I want to particularly thank Tim Davis and Todd Warner for both working with me. They are both outstanding.
~ Marion Baer
AWESOME PHYSICAL THERAPY EXPERIENCE!
I injured my right shoulder during a warm-up exercise back in July 2018. Because we were relocating to another state, I delayed getting medical assistance for nine months. During that time my condition worsened. to the point where I could not raise my arm above shoulder height, much less participate in recreational activities.
Now that my rehab is completed, I have full mobility again. Lifting my hand above my head, throwing a ball, or even shooting basketball are no longer painful or an issue!
I had an awesome experience at Improve PT. I cannot imagine a more competent rehabilitation at any other facility. Treatment was much better than I ever imagined.
Todd and his team are the best! They made me a believer.
~ Charlie Jennings
I woke up one morning and couldn’t turn my head. I was experiencing tremendous pain in my neck and shoulder. I got a referral for physical therapy and headed to Improve PT and Hand Center.
My therapist, Marcus Reynolds, was able to lessen my pain from my first visit. The stretching and exercise plan Marcus developed for me has improved my posture and kept me PAIN-FREE!!
The whole staff treated me so well. I truly felt that everyone wanted me to feel better. I enjoyed my sessions and felt better after each one. Don’t suffer in silence- see the professionals at Improve Physical Therapy. I am certainly glad I did!!
~ Lynn Bell
LOW BACK DEGENERATIVE DISC DISEASE FOR 12 YEARS – “Life is worth living again!”
The atmosphere at Improve PT is so inviting. The entire staff especially my therapist, Marcus, and also Tim and Todd welcome you with open arms and makes you feel like you’re at home.
I have suffered with degenerative disc disease for 12 years and now with the expertise of my therapist – Marcus – I can truly say I feel like a new person. I feel like life is worth living again and this was made possible by Improve PT. I am thrilled I went there for physical therapy.
I would highly recommend this facility to anyone and everyone who is in need of physical therapy. I do not feel there is any other facility that could compare to Improve PT.
~ Carol Hodge
BEN’S SUCCESS STORY – HERNIATED DISK WITH NO SURGERY!
After several weeks of pain on the left side of my lower back, which was coming from my sciatic nerve, I decided to go to the doctor. My doctor gave me an injection in my left hip plus medication. This helped me for a few days but the pain returned.
My doctor then suggested Physical Therapy and she made me an appointment with Improve Physical Therapy. After my first visit I already was starting to feel less pain. After each treatment my pain was less and less. My last day of therapy was December 18th and I am now pain-free!!
Thank you Todd and the staff at Improve PT for all your help. The entire staff was very courteous and competent. If I ever need therapy again I will return to Improve PT.
~ Bessie Blount
BEN’S SUCCESS STORY – HERNIATED DISK WITH NO SURGERY!
In October, 2017, I fell at work and suffered a ruptured disk in my lower back. For the first time in my life I was unable to perform any physical tasks. After meeting with Todd, I felt very confident regarding his knowledge on the subject and that Improve PT could improve my condition. I’ve recently finished PT and virtually have no pain, am back to normal, and am going back to work without limitations!!
Todd, Tim, and Diann are great – the positive atmosphere really contributes to the healing process. I did not feel like a patient there – I felt like family.
~ Ben Barker 2018
MELODY’S SUCCESS STORY
Almost 5 months ago, I lost complete feeling in my pinky and along the side of my ring finger on my left hand. I had Ulnar Transposition surgery. The surgery included a 5″ incision on the inside of my elbow leaving me in a great deal of pain and weakness. My doctor recommended Todd and Improve PT.
I had almost no strength in my hand and arm. I couldn’t even lift a bag of groceries off the ground or carry a cup of coffee. Typing was nearly impossible.
When I was released from therapy, I was able to lift a full bag of groceries with ease and without pain. I have no difficulty now carrying things. The strength in my hand has returned completely!
Todd and Tim worked tirelessly to get me back to my old self. Todd created challenging exercises for me. He spent the necessary time working on my arm – breaking up the scar tissue that was impinging the nerve. He even made a special custom splint for my small finger. He designed and molded it so it fit perfectly. I have never seen anything like it anywhere else.
I always felt like a valued member of the team. My input on how well I was progressing was sought after often. Todd and Tim are very friendly and easy to talk to. Diann at the front desk is great! She is very professional and does her best to accommodate your needs when scheduling appointments.
I would recommend Improve Physical Therapy to anyone needing therapy!!
~ Melody Lasure
RICK’S SUCCESS STORY – ROTATOR CUFF REPAIR DOING GREAT!
Here’s what Rick had to say:
Recovery from rotator cuff surgery is a long and difficult process taking anywhere from 3-4 months of therapy. Improve Physical Therapy provides an atmosphere of strong clinical knowledge in a safe and clean environment. The staff (all of them) are so upbeat, their attitudes of “you can do this” is very encouraging and provides the patients an attitude of “yes I can”. If you like to laugh and sing a little as you “groan and grimace” through the recovery process then this is the place to go.
This is my second event with the Improve PT staff, both resulted in outstanding results in which my physician was totally pleased in the final results. I would recommend Improve PT to anyone.
~ Rick Miller
SHELLY’S SUCCESS STORY – PATELLA PAIN DEFEATED!
Here’s what Shelly has to say:
I was in so much pain when I started therapy and I honestly didn’t think it would help. I was so wrong! I have zero pain after 12 visits. This place is crazy clean, very friendly and addictive. They make you want to come to your appointments. I would recommend Improve PT to everyone!
~ Shelly Page
CODY’S SUCCESS STORY – NO MORE LIMPING!
Here’s what Cody has to say:
Through my past experiences I was uncertain and discouraged when scheduling physical therapy for my broken ankle. However, this quickly changed as I started treatment. Todd and Tim are the friendliest people who actually care about your well being. It was a long journey, but with everyone’s help I was to get back on my feet and walking only 6 weeks after ankle reconstructive surgery!
~ Cody Anderson
LARRY’S SUCCESS STORY – ANOTHER GREAT TOTAL KNEE REPLACEMENT!
Here’s what Larry has to say:
I had a total knee replacement on January 30, 2018. I went to IPT on February 2, 2018. I received excellent skilled care there and my knee improved upon every visit. The staff and office personnel are extremely knowledgeable, courteous, and actually care about your improvement. I can’t say enough good things about IPT. They do an excellent job and I don’t believe I could have found better care anywhere else. Thank you to IPT!
~ Larry Holstine
ROBIN’S SUCCESS STORY – ARM NERVE INJURY – 100% BETTER!
Here’s what Robin has to say:
I woke up the morning of December 28,2017 with no use what so ever of my left wrist. After several tests it was determined that I had radial nerve neuropathy. I was very skeptical when starting therapy that I would be able to get use of my wrist back. I couldn’t even pick up a soda with my left hand because my wrist was so weak. After starting physical therapy, I realized that I was slowly getting back use of my wrist and fingers. I stayed in the program for several weeks and it really paid off. I now have full use back of my wrist and fingers and I’m able to pick up things that I could not pick up before the therapy. Todd and Tim are wonderful people and truly helped me! I couldn’t have asked for any better therapists to help me get back to normal.
~ Robin Newhouse
CATHY’S SUCCESS STORY
Here’s what Cathy has to say:
I was in pain for a very long time. I went to chiropractors repeatedly and was even getting hour long massages. The pain wouldn’t go away. I called my family doctor because I just couldn’t take the pain anymore. I was given the choice of a pain clinic or PT. I chose PT and my insurance recommended Improve Physical Therapy and Hand Center. Upon starting PT I was skeptical of getting better but after only 3 months my neck and back are pain free. I received the best care and the staff was always caring, compassionate, and very professional. Praise God for people who really care and want their patients to get better and live pain free lives. I highly recommend Improve PT and can honestly say this has been the best PT that I have ever received and I will not go anywhere else other than Improve Physical Therapy.
~ Cathy Shivley
MELISSA’S SUCCESS STORY – CARPAL TUNNEL SUCCESS!
Here’s what Melissa has to say:
I am a registered nurse and I was referred to IMPROVE PT by my PCP for hand therapy about 6 weeks after Carpal Tunnel surgery due to numbness and limited range of motion. My PCP chose IMPROVE PT because it offers highly specialized hand therapy by a therapist certified in this specialty.
From my very first day, I received intensive one on one therapy based on a plan of care formulated to meet my specific needs and goals as determined in the initial evaluation. Over the course of my roughly six weeks my symptoms and scarring reduced almost 100% and my strength, flexibility, and ROM returned to nearly baseline. These results were based on standardized testing at the start and finish of therapy.
I cannot stress enough that anyone should elect hand therapy IMMEDIATELY following Carpal Tunnel surgery. It eliminates scarring and associated problems that can seriously impair one’s hand function. When I entered therapy I had difficulty performing my duties as a registered nurse and also with many Activities of Daily Living- bathing, toileting, grooming, dressing, opening jars and bottles, cooking, writing; but following treatment my performance is back to normal.
I enjoyed going to therapy at IMPROVE PT not only because I could see results, but also because the staff is so caring and the clinic is so bright, inviting, and efficiently run. I am very thankful that we have such a wonderful therapy clinic in Charleston and I have already referred others.
RONALD’S SUCCESS STORY – NECK PAIN 100% GONE!!
Here’s what Ronald has to say:
I had severe pain in my neck due to an injury. I was referred by a friend to call IMPROVE to get physical therapy. I am so glad that I did. It was a such a great experience for me. Both Todd and Tim were very friendly and very attentive to my situation. I am happy to say after my therapy there I am pain free. These guys know their stuff and make it a very comfortable environment while you’re there. I highly recommend this place to everyone. I am going to miss going there because they made it fun. If I ever need therapy again I will absolutely go back there again for treatment.
~ Ron Foster
LUMBAR FUSION SURGERY-DOING GREAT!
Here’s what Mark has to say about therapy with us:
After having back trouble for over a decade, I was finally able to receive the spinal fusion I needed. I was recommended by a friend to take therapy at Improve PT. Upon starting, I instantly felt at ease with the staff and facility. I followed Todd and Tim’s instructions and trusted their directions to the point that I now have approximately 90% of my mobility restored and very minimal pain (pain-free much of the time). I am also stronger and more flexible than I have been in over a decade. I am more than satisfied with these results!
~ Mark Myers
CALLING ALL DANCERS!
Here’s what Hayden had to say:
The excellent treatment I received at Improve Physical Therapy allowed me to return to doing what I love best in life and that is DANCE! My experience was excellent. Todd, Tim and Diann are the best team in this area. They are knowledgeable and kind. I highly recommend Improve PT to any injured dancers. They will help you return to dance quickly.
~ Hayden Summers
FATHER & SON SUCCESS!!
Here’s what Hayden had to say:
I had suffered with back pain on and off for several years and just assumed it was part of getting older and that I had to accept it. My son Chase was currently a patient of Improve PT and was being treated for an ongoing foot injury when I had a more severe back injury occur. Because of my experience with Improve PT treating my son, I was impressed, and had no doubt in their quality of care and treatment.
After a few weeks of being treated alongside my son, I regained my strength, flexibility, and relieved my back pain. I was also properly educated so that I can continue with the appropriate exercises and habits to eliminate recurrences in the future. I actually looked forward to going to my appointments and felt I was making progress each time.
Awesome group of people that do great work! Exemplary!
~ Jimmy Hudson
BEATING CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN!!
Here’s what Debbie had to say:
When I started physical therapy with Improve PT my pain level was a 6-8/10 on a daily basis. I have had several back surgeries and I have had pain for over 40 years. I went through the therapy and noticed an immediate change. I just came back from a long trip WITHOUT PAIN for the first time in years! It was amazing to feel free of pain. My pain is on average a 2- 3/10 for the first time ever!
The staff at Improve are great. I was always greeted with a smile at each appointment. Tim and Todd made coming to PT a joy instead of a chore. The time and patience they spent with me is the reason I am able to cancel my upcoming surgery. Having physical therapy was a fun and healing experience. Thank you Todd, Tim and Kim.
~ Debbie Connard
Our new BALANCE PROGRAM-Getting Results!!
Here’s what BJ had to say:
My name is BJ and I’m 82 years old. I’ve had two mini strokes that caused me to be dizzy and off-balance. I’ve fallen numerous times and carried the battle scars for weeks.
I was hopeful when my doctor recommended physical therapy. He chose Improve PT because they were conveniently located and have a great reputation for results. Scheduling was easy and they accommodated my schedule without any problems.
I can’t say enough regarding how much they helped me. I learned how to walk/step again and to keep my balance better. Soon I gained strength and confidence in my actions and became more aware of my surroundings. The fun part was everyone was happy and very personable and professional. It was great to have fun and get results. If I need therapy again they are my choice and I highly recommend them to anyone.
~ BJ Mitchell
DR. MICHAEL ROMEO’S AWESOME RECOVERY!!!
This is one recovery and patient that I will never forget. This is one of those stories that gives meaning to what it means to be a Hand
I’ll never forget picking up the phone before going out the door one evening and listening to this dentist that owned his own practice intensely share with me his concern and need to regain full recovery in his hand and wrist after sustaining serious and potentially life-altering traumatic injuries which included major dislocations of all four fingers and a wrist fracture. We had a great discussion and I told him we would do everything possible to get him back to work with full function – safely and as quickly as possible.
Along with the expertise of Dr. David Ede – Michael and I worked tirelessly and closely together as a team. Michael was one of the most motivated and hardest working patients I’ve ever had the pleasure of treating. If I asked him to do something he did it -and then some. We utilized best practices available and continuously altered the clinic and home exercises appropriately. We also altered the custom finger splints that we had fabricated for him weekly to safely and effectively increase finger motion. Through our combined efforts, he was able to achieve nearly normal finger and wrist range of motion and return to his work within 8 weeks!!!!
~ Todd Warner PT, CHT, Cert. MDT
Here’s what Michael had to say:
My therapy at Improve Physical Therapy & Hand Center was a true team effort and approach. I went from feeling physical pain & anxiety to feeling pride & joy as my hand and wrist returned to their normal state. I chose them because of Todd’s expertise as a Hand Therapist. I’m very satisfied with my experience and although the highest I could rate them on my post-therapy satisfaction survey was a 4 out of 4 – I’d give them a “10”!!!
Thanks Michael!! Great Job!! Unforgettable!!
~ Michael Romeo
100% ANKLE & SHOULDER SUCCESS!
Here’s what Jese has to say:
I came to Improve Physical Therapy for two separate injuries. I had a badly sprained ankle and also arthroscopic surgery on my shoulder. Todd and Tim had me at 100% for both injuries in no time.
Actually, the joints that have been injured feel stronger now than they were before the injuries. Before these injuries were addressed I was very limited in my activities. My shoulder was especially painful. I was not able to raise my arm above my head and now my range of motion is even better than it was before being injured. I can’t recommend Improve Physical Therapy enough!
~ Jese Vance
ANOTHER GREAT TOTAL KNEE REPLACEMENT!!
Here’s what Sue had to say:
I had a total knee replacement and went to Improve PT. I finished therapy 5 weeks later with excellent results. If you want to go where there is a positive atmosphere and where you are encouraged to reach your goals – this is the place to go. They removed all of my doubts and the negativity I had heard about physical therapy. I would highly recommend this awesome group of people at Improve PT to anyone. Thank you Todd, Tim, Diann and Kim!!
~ Sue Bickley
CHEERING AGAIN!! SUPER JANICE!!
Here’s what Janice had to say:
After hurting my ankle and being on crutches for the 6th time, I was referred to an orthopedist. The doctor put me in a boot and gave me an order for physical therapy. A friend suggested Improve Physical Therapy & Hand Center. On my first visit, I was still in the boot and my ankle was very sore and swollen.
I was scared that I would have to miss my last season of Cheerleading in middle school.
All of the staff at Improve PT were so nice to me. They calmed my fears and went to work. From day one, they encouraged and pushed me to do a little more each visit. It was hard sometimes, but I am so glad they progressed my exercises and pushed me through.
All of our hard work has paid off – I just had tryouts and I made the Cheerleading team for my last year of middle school! I never could have done it without their help.
My experience at Improve PT was wonderful! I’m really going to miss all of you! Todd, Tim, Diann and Kim all made me feel like I could make it from day one. I am thankful for all of you! You guys are more than just my therapists, you’re my friends! You guys rock!!
~ Janice Browning
Here’s what Alison had to say:
I’ve never had to go to PT before so I was very nervous and didn’t know what to expect. I instantly felt at ease with Diann, Kim, Tim and Todd. They were all so welcoming and warm. The laughter and light-hearted nature of Improve PT actually made it fun to go to therapy. It was hard at times but they knew what they were doing and I’m almost back to 100%! I’m very thankful that I chose Improve PT for therapy and will always consider them my friends. This place is amazing.
Thanks Allison! Having a right elbow with two fractures makes it very difficult to regain full active range of motion – and you did it!! Gaining 73 degrees of extension may be a record.😀👍Great Job! – Todd
TOTAL HIP REPLACEMENT SUCCESS!
Here’s what Bill had to say:
I started therapy after a total hip replacement. I am so glad that I chose Improve Physical Therapy. I went in with only about 10% use of my right leg and after only 6 weeks achieved nearly full recovery.
Tim and Todd really take an interest in helping people. Diann and Kim are really sweet girls. They did a great job on my recovery. The atmosphere at Improve PT will make you feel like you’ve known these people forever. I enjoyed and looked forward to every visit.
I am thankful for these guys for getting me back to my normal self. I would recommend anybody that is in need of physical therapy to go to Improve PT. I am 100% satisfied with my results.
You guys are the BEST! I’m grateful. ~ Bill Simon
GREAT RECOVERY – SHOULDER FRACTURE & SURGERY!
Here’s what Patty had to say:
In December 2017, I missed a step and broke my arm in two places and dislocated my right shoulder. I had to have surgery and metal put into my shoulder and couldn’t do anything – the pain was so bad. I couldn’t move the arm much at all and it was stuck against my body.
I started therapy at Improve PT. Todd worked very hard on me and I worked hard too. I immediately began to see improvement. I am now nearly pain-free, can reach up, can drive, and use my arm again!
Todd gives 101% to all of his patients. I am so glad I was one of them. I am so grateful for the kindness I was shown at Improve PT.
WELCOME TO THE FAMILY – “JEANNE K” !!!
Here’s what Jeanne had to say:
After breaking my wrist in three places, followed by surgery, I was ready to get back to my normal routine. After removing my brace, I was shocked and devastated at how little mobility I had. However, I landed in the perfect place – Improve Physical Therapy and Hand Center. At first, I thought “this is going to take forever!” – but within days I was noticing improvement and after several weeks of therapyI had regained almost complete range of motion and mobility.
Yes – the physical therapist was very skilled – but to my surprise there was another element of healing happening at Improve! It’s such a happy place! The entire staff treats all of us who are patients like family. From the moment I walked through the door I knew I was in a safe caring environment. There was laughter and joking everyday. An atmosphere like this is extremely conductive to healing.
I did not expect to look forward to physical therapy. I was actually eager for my sessions. I have zero pain now with just some minor stiffness. I am so grateful for the healing experience I was able to receive at Improve! I had complete confidence in the skill of the therapist and thoroughly enjoyed the light-hearted and happy atmosphere.
Chronic Achille’s Tendonitis – Now “PAIN-FREE!!”
Here’s what Melinda had to say:
I went to Improve Physical Therapy after suffering for almost two years with Achilles tendinitis. Self-treatment proved to be not effective long term as I had pain and inflammation daily. My job requires a lot of standing, sitting and driving which had all proved to be challenging after approximately 30 minutes. Not anymore!
Todd (physical therapist) knew what plan of treatment was needed! Todd and Tim were instrumental in my healing. I am now PAIN FREE!!! I feel like I have a normal life now. I continue to do 4-6 weeks of home exercises and use the night splint to keep my Achilles stretched to insure my pain does not return.
I know without a doubt that God sent me to Improve PT. Thank you Todd, Tim, Kim and Diann for taking great care of me. Your knowledge, professionalism, sense of humor, kindness, and encouragement made up the prescription for my recovery. I appreciate you so very much!
Trigger Finger Success!!!
Here’s what Donna had to say:
Before my first visit at Improve PT I couldn’t write, snap, zip, use scissors, or even squeeze salad tongs. I had “trigger thumb” and after two cortisone shots I was still in constant pain.
I am a musician and I was very concerned but at the onset of therapy Todd was hopeful but realistic – surgery was a distinct possibility. I was given home exercises that were easy to do in addition to therapy. Through treatment, exercises, and the addition of a splint I was able to use my thumb again with no catching and NO PAIN!
I enjoyed the bright and casual atmosphere of therapy. Todd, Tim and Diann were always friendly and efficient. A huge thumbs up to the staff at Improve. I am so grateful for all of you. If I ever need physical therapy in the future I will confidently return to Improve Physical Therapy.
~ Donna Becher
NECK BULGING DISC WITH ARM PAIN!!!
Here’s what Melinda had to say:
I recently received physical therapy for a bulging disc in my neck at Improve PT. When I started therapy I was in excruciating pain and was fearful that physical therapy would be a waste of time and the end result would not be favorable.
However, after the first visit with Todd and his thorough assessment and treatment plan I was willing to begin therapy with a positive attitude. Todd assured me that if we continued with his plan of treatment and I did my exercises at home that I would begin to see results.
After 3 or 4 sessions I was amazed at my improvement. I continued to improve rapidly and regained 95% of my full range of motion within a very short period of time.
I thank Todd and his wonderful staff for their professionalism, support, and empathy. I hope I don’t need therapy anytime soon, but if I do IMPROVE is #1 on my list.
~ Melinda Taylor
CHRONIC NECK AND SHOULDER PAIN – GOODBYE!!
Here’s what Mary had to say:
My name is Mary and due to 3 bulging discs I have had chronic neck and shoulder pain for 5 years now. I have been to other physical therapists, tried getting massages, chiropractic treatments and even acupuncture and nothing helped until I started coming to Improve PT. It was the first time I have gotten pain relief for longer than a 2 week period. Thanks to Improve I have finally gotten my life back to normal.
I am forever grateful for the staff at Improve. They always made my experience there a fun time. Whether that was making jokes, singing along to the radio, or just simply asking how my day was going and how my pain was.
Todd never gave up on me. He continuously helped me in multiple different ways through physical therapy, traction, massage and electric stimulation. I always enjoyed going to Improve and recommend it for anyone with any physical therapy needs.
Another Successful Shoulder Recovery!
Here’s what David had to say:
Injuries hit us unexpectedly and often change our ability to function in our daily lives. The injury I experienced seemed devastating at first, but Mr. Warner and his staff quickly had me back in action.
Their evaluation had me on an exercise routine the first day I showed up. The careful application of concentrated exercises being performed correctly and the stretching (mobilization) procedures had my strength in those areas improving immediately. After several weeks of supervised therapy, consultation on how to continue improving, and advice on how to not re-injure myself, I was on my way.
The atmosphere provided by Mr. Warner and his staff is a very pleasant and healing environment. I achieved much improvement and was given the knowledge to promote continued good health in my post PT life.
Thank you all for making my therapy a pleasant and transformative experience. There is no doubt that I will return to Improve Physical Therapy if needed in the future.

VERTIGO THERAPY & SUCCESS!!
Here’s what Jill had to say:
I was recommended to see a therapist for Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) – one of the most common causes of vertigo — the sudden sensation that you’re spinning or that the inside of your head is spinning (dizziness). I’ve experienced vertigo symptoms while sitting, standing and even laying down.
My therapist – Marcus Reynolds PT, DPT, CSCS – was knowledgeable in the condition and explained all exercises and how they impacted inner ear function. He also helped focus on balance; a related issue to vertigo.
After the first day I could tell there was improvement. After several weeks my symptoms were basically gone.
I am so thankful for the care/treatment I received while at Improve.
BROKEN & STIFF FINGERS – COME TO THE “HAND CENTER” AND A CERTIFIED HAND THERAPIST
Here’s what Scott had to say:
I was referred to Improve PT by a doctor after breaking my little finger. When I started I could hardly put my hand in my pocket without pain. I had limited range of motion in the finger and struggled with everyday activities that I hadn’t realized required a pinky.
After working with Todd and Tim, I am able to do just about everything I could before. There is no pain and I have regained much of the lost dexterity. I believe the atmosphere they create also helps in the recovery process. Everyone is upbeat, encouraging, and friendly.
I had an outstanding experience at Improve PT and I couldn’t be happier with the care I received!!
~ Scott Abbott
BEST THERAPY EXPERIENCE I’VE EVER RECEIVED.
Here’s what Dr. Life had to say:
Todd and Tim, along with their friendly and helpful staff, provided me with the absolute best treatment and experience I have ever received in my many visits as a physical therapy patient over the last several years. I looked forward to each visit and was actually disappointed when my visits ended even though I had regained full use of my hand and was completely pain-free.
I highly recommend Improve Physical Therapy to anyone in need of excellent physical therapy in a warm, fun friendly environment. “Outstanding.”
~ Dr. Jeffry Life
CHRONIC NECK PAIN & STIFFNESS – 100% ABOLISHED!!
Here’s what Joan had to say:
In the late 90’s, I fell and broke my shoulders and with age the pain became increasingly worse, especially in my left shoulder and neck. Over the last year, the pain started radiating down my left arm and I also began having some numbness and tingling.
For many years I have had neck stiffness and have been unable to turn my neck to the left which has limited my ability to see traffic coming upon my left side while driving on the interstate. You can imagine my surprise as I started improving! I am now able to turn my neck and see traffic coming up for the first time in many years. This alone has given me – an 80 year old elderly driver – a lot more confidence.
Todd Warner’s neck therapy was a God-send for me. My shoulder, scapular, and upper arm pain/tingling disappeared after only 3 sessions. Over the next 7 sessions, the therapy provided by Todd and Tim restored my neck motion. Where my neck was once stiff and immobile – I can now turn with ease.
I’m so glad I found Improve PT. I am a repeat patient of Todd’s -who also helped me with my left broken wrist in the past. All of his staff are top notch workers in my book. I recommend this business to everyone and I give them a score of EXCELLENT!
~ Joan Stiltner
ANOTHER GREAT TOTAL KNEE REPLACEMENT!!
Here’s what Nancy had to say:
On 1-7-19, I had a total knee replacement. I started physical therapy at Improve PT on 1-10-19. I saw improvement very quickly and gained my motion and function back. It was a lot of work but I enjoyed my time with my new friends.
Todd, Tim, Kim, Marcus and Diann were always warm and friendly and the encouragement they gave me was great. I sure will miss seeing them and all the nice people I met there.
I was very satisfied with the outcome of my physical therapy and would recommend this clinic to any of my family and friends.
~ Nancy Barnett
OHere’s what Patti had to say:
I began getting shoulder pain and limited motion that was unchanging for about 3-4 months and waking me up at night. My primary care physician recommended Improve Physical Therapy & Hand Center.
The physical therapy treatments provided significant improvement to the point to where I’m almost 100% again. The facility and staff are great and made therapy fun. The caring, upbeat and professional atmosphere made me look forward to going to my appointments.
I would recommend this clinic to all my family and friends and will return for any future physical therapy needs.
HAND INJURY? STIFF FINGERS? – GET BETTER AT THE HAND CENTER WITH A CERTIFIED HAND THERAPIST!!
Here’s what Sandra had to say:
In September 2018, I injured my right hand and fingers with second degree burns. As the burns slowly healed, tough scar tissue formed which caused my fingers to basically lock up and not move.
I had started therapy at another place with very little results and was discharged. That’s when my doctor said “I know someone who can fix those for you. If he can’t get them moving, no one can!!
I walked into Improve Physical Therapy & Hand Center thinking “Okay – here we go again.” When I told Todd that the other therapist had stopped because the tight skin tore and bled his reaction was “we aren’t going to let a little blood stop us.” He would carefully bandage the fingers during and after stretching and continue! Yes, the therapy was painful at times, but the outcome was well worth it. My fingers gained a lot of motion – they are moving again! The laughing, joking, the music, and the whole atmosphere made you forget the pain and discomfort at times.
I am very pleased with my results. Thank you for being able to get me to where I am. Raymond and I are still doing the exercises at home. You and you’re staff are great people!!!
~ Sandra Weis
BACK PAIN-NO MORE!!
Here’s what Frances had to say:
When I first came to Improve Physical Therapy, I had pain in my lower back and my right leg almost everyday. Since coming here that pain has greatly decreased. Todd taught me basic exercises and how to do them correctly at home, which has helped me tremendously.
I have had a very good experience at Improve. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. They’re like one big happy family. I am truly better today thanks to them and I would definitely return here for any future physical therapy needs.
~ Frances Coles
SURPRISING SHOULDER RECOVERY!!
Here’s what Bill had to say:
When I severely injured my left shoulder I was given two options: surgery or physical therapy. I chose physical therapy with the hope that surgery could be avoided entirely. I then began to look into the therapists practicing in the Charleston area. As I reviewed the information, I knew that Improve Physical Therapy was the place for me.
During my first visit, I realized there was something different at Improve. The way that Todd and Tim interacted with their patients reminded me of Psalm 100:2 “Serve the Lord with gladness.”
I came to Improve PT unable to raise my left arm. Today, my strength has been restored and I can use my left arm again!
~ Bill Donegan
Great job Bill – considering 3 rotator cuff tears and a biceps tendon tear confirmed on MRI – your great result is unexpected. We usually suggest surgery for someone with your injuries. Wow!
LOW BACK PAIN SUCCESS!!
Here’s what Elaine had to say:
I had been having a lot of pain in my buttocks and low back. I went to my doctor and she took x-rays which showed arthritis and degeneration of my spine. She recommended physical therapy and her office made me an appointment with Improve PT.
Todd Warner did my evaluation and developed a plan. We started immediately. He warned me that my muscles would probably be sore from the exercises at first and showed me the correct exercises and techniques for my problem.
Todd is a fantastic therapist and a great motivator – especially when the exercises and the use of machines were difficult or strenuous. He set my goals and when reached them, he did not continue treatment – so I did not have to use all my allowed visits.
I can now do more than I’ve been able to do for several years and the pain is gone!! Being at Improve PT has enriched my life and made chores less painful. Thank you to everyone for making me feel welcome and important. I feel like I’ve made new friends.
~ Elaine Max
MARCUS & IMPROVE PT: 1
NECK and SHOULDER PAIN: 0
Here’s what Linda had to say:
Before therapy, the pain in my neck and shoulder pain was debilitating. The pain limited most of my daily activities. I was scheduled for my physical therapy evaluation quickly and after a few visits started to see positive results. Physical therapy was valuable in my recovery and I am now able to resume my normal daily activities.
I found the staff and my therapist, Marcus Reynolds, to be very friendly, helpful, and professional. The atmosphere was always friendly – almost like family. They made it a pleasure to come to therapy. Improve PT was a great help to me and I would return if I ever need therapy again.
~ Linda Hall
KNOWLEDGEABLE, ENCOURAGING, AND SUPER NICE!
Here’s what Cathy had to say:
I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis several years ago and was told that I could have a knee replacement whenever I was ready. I was doing okay with just injections every so often until I fell going up the steps to our back porch. My left knee was damaged beyond repair and I limped for the entire summer.
I had a knee replacement on August 16th and I quickly began therapy with Improve PT on Aug 19th. Although not 100%, I’m much improved and do not have pain and I walk normally. There was some pain and strain involved but the results were well worth it – especially being able to sleep at night because I could finally get comfortable!
Everyone at Improve Physical Therapy & Hand Center has been knowledgeable, encouraging, and just super nice! I can say nothing but positive things about them. I feel like they gave me my life back!! Thank you to everyone- you all are amazing!!
~ Cathy Collins
NECK PAIN!!!! We can help – stop suffering!
Here’s what Robert had to say:
I had been dealing with neck pain that would not go away for a long time. I drive for UPS so I like to keep my head on a swivel and that was becoming harder and harder to do. So I went to see my doctor and he sent me to Improve Physical Therapy. He said Todd Warner was the best “neck man” in the valley.
I went in for my first visit and Todd showed me what was going on with my neck and told me we could fix it. Todd started working with me and I immediately started noticing a change. He gave me some neck exercises to do at home which helped me a great deal. I am now able to sleep through the night again!
This was truly a pleasant experience. I really enjoyed the atmosphere at Improve. All of the staff was so friendly and nice to a fault. The only regret I have is not coming to Improve sooner – I would of saved myself a lot of sleepless nights and painful days driving. I will definitely choose Improve PT if I ever need therapy again.
ROTATOR CUFF REPAIR – DOING GREAT!!
Here’s what Ron had to say:
I’ve been a patient of Todd Warner’s for various ailments through the years. I’ve learned that if it is at all possible to recover from physical therapy alone, you will recover here if you follow their guidance. They have helped me to both avoid surgery and then to recover from it when it was necessary.
The atmosphere at Improve PT is excellent. They make you feel special, calling you by your name, and helping you through the pain. I highly recommend Improve PT to anyone in need of therapy. I would follow Todd, Tim, Diann and Kim wherever they go and I will be returning for any PT needs in the future.
~ Ron Brunt
Here’s what Carol had to say:
I was referred to Improve Improve Physical Therapy for extreme back pain and problems with my balance after having three major surgeries within a three month period.
This was my first experience with physical therapy. My therapist was Marcus and he immediately made me feel very comfortable. All of the staff members were very competent and friendly. My appointments were always on time and the facility was easily accessible and very clean.
I believe physical therapy was beneficial in my recovery. I now have little to no back pain and my balance has tremendously improved. I highly recommend Improve Physical Therapy and will definitely be returning if the need arises. Thank you to everyone for all your help!!
AWESOME HAND RECOVERY!!
Here’s what Mozella has to say:
After having four surgeries on my left hand and elbow to remove years of pain, who would have thought it would leave me without any motion at all. My sympathetic nervous system had an abnormal reaction to the surgeries and I was diagnosed with CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome). Imagine not being able to put your hair in a ponytail, button your pants, or hook your bra. I couldn’t do simple tasks like opening a bottle of water or use a can opener.
Therapy started and continued for several months. Todd and Tim never gave up on me and I never gave up on them. All their little gadgets, exercises, stretches, and guidance from their many years of experience did the job. I may not be 100%- but I’m getting close and have improved tremendously. I have the tools and knowledge now to maintain and gain daily. I am thankful to say that I am pain-free and able to do all those daily tasks now!
I cannot say enough about the crew at Improve Physical Therapy and Hand Center; Todd, Tim and Kim – my favorites – and yes on a first name basis. You would believe it is a family business based upon how friendly and devoted to their jobs they are.
Thank you to everyone at Improve PT & Hand Center. I can honestly say I am highly satisfied with my results and I would definitely return if I ever need physical therapy in the future.
~ Mozella Miller
Mobility and Back Pain Improved!
Here’s what Chris had to say:
I suffered compression fractures in my back due to prostate cancer spreading to my spine. I had two back operations to support my spine but still experienced severe back pain, stiffness and an inability to walk long distances. I obtained a referral for physical therapy from my oncologist, and I chose Improve PT upon the recommendation of a friend who was a former patient.
I was discharged today, 5/1/19 – my pain and stiffness has significantly decreased while my mobility has increased. I was able to walk a mile yesterday with much less pain!
I am happy I chose Improve Physical Therapy. They are friendly, efficient, and professional. I am satisfied with the result of my physical therapy and would recommend this clinic to anyone needing physical therapy.
~ Chris Smith
CHRONIC HAND PAIN AND STIFFNESS – NO LONGER!!!
Here’s what Jessica had to say:
After spending 10 years trying to relieve the pain in my hand I had from tearing a ligament, I had surgery to remove scar tissue. I then went through 9 months of hand therapy at other facilities and it never changed my pain. I then decided to try Improve Physical Therapy & Hand Center.
Todd, Tim and all the other employees at Improve made me feel so comfortable while helping me recover. When I started therapy with them in mid- August I was unable to move my wrist and hand really at all. I couldn’t lift or grip anything in my right hand. Todd tried everything until he found something that started to finally relieve my pain and stiffness.
Now, because of Improve Physical Therapy I have normal motion and most of my strength back. I appreciate everything the staff at Improve have done for me over the past 3 months. I always looked forward to coming to therapy because everyone is so nice and fun. I’ve been to other therapy facilities and didn’t feel as comfortable or get as good results as I have with Improve PT.
Thank you all for helping me get back to my normal self!!
Here’s what Nancy had to say:
I had been having trouble with my low back and balance for awhile. When my doctor referred me to physical therapy I didn’t really know what to expect. I went to Improve PT.
The physical therapist and all the staff were very friendly, professional, and easy to talk to. After a few sessions, the pain in my low back decreased and my motion increased! My balance also improved which makes me feel more confident when working in my home or going out on shopping errands.
My experience with Improve Physical Therapy has been fantastic and very helpful. I was always greeted promptly and friendly by the staff and the facility was always clean and professional.
If I ever need physical therapy again, I will definitely come back to Improve PT! Thank you everyone for all your help!
~ Nancy Wills
SUPER SISTERS!!! Therapy after joint replacement.
Here’s what Marykay had to say:
After a custom hip implant and some complications, I needed physical therapy. My doctor sent me to Improve PT. I’m so happy he did. Todd, Tim, Kim, Marcus and Diann and all the staff are the most professional and attentive physical therapy team I have ever experienced. In the beginning, I could barely walk with a walker and at the end of PT I needed no assistance. I would highly recommend this group to anyone needing physical therapy.
Here’s what Brenda had to say:
When I found out that I needed PT after a partial knee replacement, I knew exactly where I wanted to go. While I had never been a patient of Todd Warner’s, I had heard great things about him and Improve Physical Therapy. Todd created a personalized rehab program to meet my special recovery needs. I improved every week in this “positive atmosphere for healing.” Everyone worked as a team to assure that not only myself – but all of their patients – received proper guidance, instruction, and care for their recoveries. I recently graduated and I am able to walk normally and achieved full range of motion. Thanks so much to Todd and his amazing staff.
