WRIST FRACTURES AND STIFF HANDS —- 27 YEARS OF SUCCESSFULLY TREATING!!
Here’s what Teddy had to say:
Improve Physical Therapy & Hand Center: 304-925-4325. Write it down right now, so you won’t forget it! I came to Improve PT after being in a cast for two months with a fractured wrist. My fingers were swollen and completely useless. I am 82 years old so I couldn’t help but think I just might not get full use of my wrist or hand.
Then Improve PT came to the rescue! Todd Warner, Certified Hand Therapist, and Tim Davis, PTA, worked with me for two months until they put my hand and wrist back in working order. Everyone including, Kaden, in the hand therapy section pitched in to make sure I didn’t waste a minute of each hour long session. When one exercise or treatment was finished, someone was there to start the next one.
Everyone was skillful, competent, proficient, and had a combination of years of experience. Not only were they experts, but they made it fun!! I loved going in there because every person in the building was friendly, kind, and full of life. They make you work hard, but they are standing by you with words of encouragement, kindness and laughter. I now have a feeling of accomplishment and gratitude because we all worked so hard so I could have full use of my wrist and hand. Actually, I feel like I successfully completed boot camp where the drill sergeant had a heart of gold and a sense of humor.
Everyone was skillful, competent, proficient, and had a combination of years of experience. Not only were they experts, but they made it fun!
NECK PAIN FOR 20 YEARS – NO MORE!!
Here’s what Beebe had to say:
I have had frequent excruciating neck pain for more than 20 years. I tried other therapies and treatments and didn’t know there was a way to help reduce it until I chose Improve Physical Therapy. Todd Warner PT and Tim Davis PTA provided me with exercises that addressed the position of my cervical spine and discs. I was educated on the correct exercises to do at home to keep the neck discs in the proper position.
They restored my neck motion and greatly reduced the pain quickly. I am now pain-free most of the time. I have control over my neck pain!
I should have been here 20 years ago. Never give up and go see them if you have neck pain or stiffness. Thank you so much Improve Physical Therapy!!!

UPPER EXTREMITY PHYSICAL THERAPY – OUR SPECIALTY!!
Here’s what Brigid had to say:
I started therapy at Improve Physical Therapy & Hand Center because I fractured my elbow and had surgery. I had very limited movement and range of motion, weakness, and pain in the elbow.
Todd Warner – Physical Therapist and Certified Hand Therapist – completed a thorough evaluation with detailed measurements of my range of motion, strength, and pain levels. I was provided with home exercises and a progressive routine of exercises and stretches in the clinic. Todd also fabricated a custom elbow splint to wear at night and fitted me with a daytime splint to restore my range of motion. My progress was periodically evaluated and my routine adapted. Typed reports for my doctor were always prepared and sent promptly.
The entire staff was very welcoming, friendly and they all worked to help me in any way they could. At the conclusion of my therapy, my range of motion, strength, and pain were almost 100% returned to normal! The friendly atmosphere, professionalism, and attention to progress made my road to recovery much easier and more enjoyable. I can’t thank this group enough for all their help!

ROTATOR CUFF TEAR – We Can Help!!
Here’s what Dennis had to say:
I already had a previous experience with Todd Warner PT, CHT, Cert. MDT. He treated 2 budging discs in my neck successfully about 5 years ago. So when I was told I needed physical therapy for a rotator cuff tear of my shoulder, I knew I wanted to see Todd at Improve Physical Therapy & Hand Center.
After some therapy and a cortisone shot I’m pretty much pain-free! I have been a heavy equipment mechanic for 45 years and am much better now than 3 months ago.
I am so thankful for Improve PT. The entire staff was very helpful and provided a friendly atmosphere. Friends for life, but I hope we never meet again for therapy — lol!!

ARM & HAND THERAPY SUCCESS…
Here’s what Steven had to say:
My injury was from a motor vehicle accident. On my first visit with Improve Physical Therapy, I was barely able to move and use my arm. Now, after a lot of good therapy and guidance provided by my therapist, Marcus Reynolds, I have the ability to use my arm again. The pain has also gotten a lot better and I have regained most of my strength back.
From where I started, I am very pleased with where I am now. My therapist was very knowledgeable and friendly. The whole staff was professional and pleasant to work with. I would recommend Improve PT to anyone in need of therapy!

THE PLACE TO GO WITH HAND OR WRIST INJURIES…
Here is what Robin had to say:
I had issues with De Quervain’s tenosynovitis of the wrist for a couple years. I thought it was osteoarthritis and treated with over the counter pain relivers and analgesic creams. After informing me that Todd Warner is the best hand therapist in the area, my chiropractor set up an appointment with Improve Physical Therapy & Hand Center.
Todd is a Certified Hand Therapist (CHT) and has been certified longer than anyone in the Charleston area. He is one of only 24 in the entire state. He and everyone on his staff were very warm and welcoming. They all jumped right in to help me. I always felt that I got specialized care and their interest in me was paramount.
As with everyone, I am extremely busy at this time, especially with added familial responsibilities due to COVID. But since discharge, I actually miss this crew of wonderful people. I would refer anyone in need of hand therapy to Improve PT. Also, I certainly noted the same degree of expertise, work ethic, and compassion with their patients that require other forms of PT.
The benefits of my therapy are evident every day and I could not be more satisfied and grateful to Todd and his staff.
~ Robin Graley
Here’s what C.C. had to say:
I have been to Improve Physical Therapy many times. They have treated my knee, wrist, back and whole body. Every single time the whole staff provided me with excellent care. I appreciate the detailed care they provided and all they did to make me feel better physically. They have helped me heal, restored my strength, and improved my energy.
The staff at Improve PT has been professional, knowledgeable, caring, and friendly. They are very attentive to their work and everyone is very down to earth. I want to thank everyone for helping me in maintaining my physical well-being. I am very pleased with my outcomes. I don’t know where I would be without them!!

DON’T KEEP LIVING WITH NECK PAIN…
CHRONIC NECK & ARM PAIN —- OUR SPECIALTY!!
Here’s what Michelle had to say:
I had experienced neck pain, arm pain, and sharp shooting pain all the way down to my hand and wrist for several years. No one seemed to be able to help me or take my complaints seriously.
I received an order to start physical therapy for my pain. Todd Warner, Physical and Hand Therapist, completed a thorough and “spot on” evaluation of my symptoms and target areas. Todd and his team understood right away!! The techniques they had me do both at the clinic and at home truly helped relieve my problems, improve my range of motion, and most importantly my pain and discomfort — no medication needed!! I no longer wake up with a numb hand or sore arm.
This team is so knowledgeable and fun to work with. They get to know you and care about you. Improve Physical Therapy & Hand Center provided me with high quality treatment and relieved my hand and arm pain very quickly.
Thank you so much for all your help!!

CHARLESTON’S HAND & WRIST THERAPY SPECIALISTS
Here’s what Glenn had to say:
I had a surgical procedure on my right hand and ring finger. After the operation I needed physical therapy and the doctor recommended Improve Physical Therapy & Hand Center. At the time of my first visit to Improve I could not use my right hand; the hand was swollen and I had a bad scar the length of my hand and ring finer.
During my first visit at Improve, I was impressed with the entire staff. They were professional, knowledgeable, and caring. Every therapy visit started on time; I never had to wait past my appointment time. The staff was very patient working with me, showing me how to use the therapy equipment and giving instructions on how I could work at home to progress my recovery.
After completing my therapy, I have complete use of my hand. I have 90% use of my fingers and the last 10% will come in due time with the workout/exercises the Improve staff gave to me to do at home. My scar is also 99% gone!
I want to thank the staff at Improve PT for the great job they did. They not only are wall trained, knowledgeable and caring but they are friendly and work great together. The positive atmosphere really contributes to the healing process. I would definitely recommend Improve Physical Therapy & Hand Center to anyone in need of physical therapy!

TOTAL KNEE REPLACEMENT THERAPY SUCCESS AGAIN & AGAIN!!
Here’s what Charles had to say:
Prior to my knee replacement surgery, my right knee was chronically painful and arthritic. After my surgery I began physical therapy at Improve PT. Within one week of the surgery I noticed my chronic knee pain was gone. Citing the critical nature of the first 3-4 weeks of PT my therapist, Marcus Reynolds, immediately put me on a rigorous exercise program designed to achieve 0 degree extension and excellent flexion of my new knee. By the end of the first month of rehab, I was able to achieve this critical goal. After that, my rehab progress was steady day by day, week by week. Now after therapy I have zero pain and have once again resumed a normal life. After just two visits at Improve PT I knew I was in good hands. Marcus, Todd, and the entire staff are professional, extremely knowledgeable, and very personable to work with. I fully credit this staff with my successful rehabilitation from total knee replacement surgery.
Many thanks to Improve for all their help. I highly recommend this facility to anyone needing professional physical therapy!

KNEE INJURY DEFEATED – RETURNING OUR PATIENTS BACK TO SPORTS SUCCESSFULLY!
Here’s what Cailyn had to say:
I partially tore my MCL, suffered severe bone contusions, and was at risk of developing CRPS. The doctor prescribed me physical therapy. This was my first experience with therapy and I chose Improve PT at the recommendation of a family friend. When I first came to Improve PT I had very little mobility and had been on crutches for nearly three weeks. I was predicted to miss my entire high school soccer season initially. However, with the help of my physical therapist, Marcus Reynolds, I was able to return to practice before the season ended and I am able to compete in an indoor soccer season. By the time I graduated from therapy I had zero pain and was able to return to my normal routine.
Everyone at Improve PT was very welcoming and genuinely cared about helping me. They were crucial to my recovery. I am very happy with my results and I am extremely thankful for their help! I would definitely recommend their services.

Hand & Wrist Pain Defeated!!!
Here’s what Lando had to say:
I was referred to Improve Physical Therapy by my doctor because I had pain in both my wrists and hands for the past 6 months. After doing daily chores the pain was extreme. After just a few physical therapy sessions the pain began to ease. Todd and Tim along with the rest of the staff did a tremendous job for me. Todd also made me a custom splint for my left hand to wear when working; which has also helped. The therapy and splint did the trick and I am now pain-free!!
The staff at Improve are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. They make you feel very comfortable. I always looked forward to my visits and was sad when they ended. I had a very enjoyable experience and I am very pleased with my outcome. I recommend Improve PT to everyone needing therapy.

Low Back Pain & Sciatica Defeated!!!
Here’s what Edward had to say:
I am a man of prayer who likes to march and pray. However, I had to alter the way I prayed because of back and nerve pain. I was even hindered in cutting my own grass. Through therapy my way of prayer and cutting my own yard has been restored.
My therapist, Marcus Reynolds, was focused and on point. The treatment I received was valuable in my recovery and I am very satisfied with my results. I enjoyed working with and interacting with Marcus and the rest of the staff at Improve Physical Therapy. I will recommend this office to all my family and friends.

ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL ROTATOR CUFF REPAIR!!!
Here’s What Doug had to say:
I had put off shoulder surgery for years and years. Most everyone’s advice was “don’t do it!” Finally, earlier this year, I couldn’t take it any longer and I wanted my active life back. Surgery was way more difficult than expected and recovery was also going to be more difficult and longer than expected. However, Todd Warner and his staff at Improve PT went to work and I am back doing the things I enjoy.
I am extremely thankful for Improve PT. Not only do they absolutely know what they’re doing, they are also fun and you are just comfortable that you are in the hands of great people. The office is also efficient and timely. Every single appointment started on time and I had no issues. In addition, Todd could have easily shut down his operation during COVID-19 period. Instead, with a fraction of his patients showing up, he remained open. The decision was paramount to my recovery.
I am going to miss seeing the crew at Improve and wish them all the success they can handle. Do yourself a favor and choose Improve PT, you will not regret that decision!

CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME – OUR SPECIALTY!!
Here’s what Kristi had to say:
A month after carpal tunnel surgery I still had swelling and a lot of pain. I was very discouraged and regretting the surgery. So I called my surgeon and he recommended Improve Physical Therapy because they specialize in hands.
Todd Warner, my hand therapist, met with me for an evaluation and he then developed a plan for my treatment. After a few visits my hand was better than I had anticipated. Then after just a couple weeks of therapy my hand has had significant improvements. The swelling and pain are gone and my strength far exceeds normal.
I drove an hour to get to my appointments but I am very glad I did. I am so thankful and grateful to have been treated at Improve PT. Todd and his staff are all very friendly, knowledgeable and caring. Everyone was excellent to work with and I am very happy with my results.

ELBOW INJURIES – Come see the PT Upper Extremity Rehab Specialists!!
Here’s what Sharon had to say:
I had fallen and broken my elbow and had to have surgery. I was referred to PT and chose Improve Physical Therapy & Hand Center at the recommendation
of a friend.
When I came to Improve PT I was in a lot of pain and had very limited mobility. Thanks to my therapist, Marcus Reynolds, I was able to regain 85-90% of my mobility and range of motion back and greatly reduce pain. I know that if I had not chosen such an outstanding physical therapy center (that specializes in hand and arms) that I would not have achieved such an excellent result. I would likely still be in pain and still be unable to use my arm.
I would like to thank everyone that helped in my recovery. Everyone at Improve PT is very professional and knowledgeable in what they do. I am very happy with my experience and results. The whole staff was a delight to be with and made therapy enjoyable. I would recommend them to anyone in eed of physical therapy!!

THEY REALLY CARED ABOUT HELPING YOU.
Here’s what Diana had to say:
I injured my ankle and was told it wasn’t broken so I continued to do the best I could to go about my life. It would swell up and the pain was terrible. I decided to get a second opinion and found out it was broken. The doctor decided to send me to physical therapy.
I chose to go to Improve Physical Therapy because my husband had been treated there by Marcus Reynolds, DPT and he recovered very well. My therapist, Marcus, along with the entire staff worked with me and I recovered very quickly. Since then I have been able to return to my normal activities along with working out.
Everyone at Improve PT was kind and made you know that they really cared about helping you. They make you feel as if you’ve known them for a long time.

Here’s what Pam had to say:
I was done. I couldn’t stand the pain in my neck anymore, I was ready to give up. The neck pain was so bad that I could not sleep or turn my head. I don’t take pain medications and did not know how I was going to live with that pain.
I decided to give Improve Physical Therapy a try. After the first visit, I was having relief and by the end of my therapy I felt great. I feel so good I am making my husband go for his hands!
I love this place. If Improve PT wouldn’t have helped me I don’t know what I would of done. I received great and friendly service and I am very happy with my results.

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.
~ Tara Boggs
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!!

Bessie’s Success Story- Goodbye Sciatica!
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.

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.

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!!

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.
~ David Haney
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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

HAND & WRIST THERAPY CERTIFIED SPECIALISTS!!
I had surgery on my hand to release a trigger finger. I was a little nervous to start physical therapy, but the minute I walked into Improve Physical Therapy & Hand Center I was put at ease. I was greeted with a smile from Diann and she helped me with my paperwork since I was unable to write because of my hand.
Todd Warner, Certified Hand Therapist, did my initial evaluation and explained what he felt like I needed. Tim and Kim also helped with portions of my therapy as well. They were very professional and I felt very comfortable with them. Todd would make adjustments during the process of therapy to give me the maximum benefit.
I now have full use of my hand without pain!
I am so thankful for Improve PT. I recommend them to anyone in need of therapy.

SCIATICA & LOW BACK PAIN!!! GOOD-BYE!!!
Here’s what Teddy had to say:
I had severe sciatica pain in my right leg to the point I could not walk very far without intense pain. This caused me to sit for hours at a time because it relieved my pain. This sedentary lifestyle made me weak and lethargic. The more I sat the more I wanted to sit. I went from walking 2 miles a day and working in my yard to doing nothing.
I knew I had to do something so I went to Improve Physical Therapy. They came highly recommended by a friend and also by my doctor. Marcus and Tim found the right exercises and equipment to help me get rid of my pain. They built up my stamina and strengthened my back and leg muscles in just a few weeks. I am now pain-free and have gone back to my normal lifestyle including being very active at church, playing with my grand-children, and doing physical activities.
My experience with Improve Physical Therapy was positive. All of the employees were knowledgeable, kind, patient and friendly. I can’t thank them enough for helping me. I highly recommend them to anyone in need of physical therapy.
GREAT PEOPLE! GREAT PLACE!
Here’s what Kim had to say:
I started having constant low back pain. The pain was very intense at times. After seeing my doctor he recommended physical therapy and I chose to go to Improve Physical Therapy.
My therapist, Marcus Reynolds DPT, was very thorough and he educated me on the treatment plan and our goals. After just the first treatment, I began having pain relief. My work and social days became more pain-free each week.
I had a wonderful experience at Improve PT. Everyone was over the top – always nice and very helpful. I always looked forward to my appointments. Great people! Great place! Thank you to all the staff for helping me.
Calling all BASKETBALL PLAYERS!!!
Here’s what Cody had to say:
I injured my knee November 2019 resulting in a meniscus and 2 ligament tears. I was referred to Improve Physical therapy for rehab.
My time with Improve PT went very well and exceeded my expectations. The staff was amazing and made me feel welcome. They were very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the process. They have helped to recover my motion and strength – as well as my confidence. My pain is 95% improved! I have been playing some basketball and am excited to get back to full competition soon.
I want to thank everyone at Improve PT for their help and I will definitely return there if I ever need physical therapy again. I am 100% satisfied with the services.

Here’s what Kavi had to say:
After being in a car accident and having pain in my shoulder, neck, and back; my doctor referred me to physical therapy. I decided to go to Improve Physical Therapy because they had a good reputation. They did not disappoint!
I was scheduled for my first visit quickly. The staff was always friendly and welcoming. The environment of the facility was very clean, comfortable, and relaxing. They made therapy fun!
I started noticing changes in my pain after starting therapy and kept steadily improving. After a few months, my body became as good as new. My therapist and the whole staff were helpful and valuable in my recovery. I would recommend them to anyone in need of physical therapy.

NECK PAIN DEFEATED!!
Here’s what Greg had to say:
I began having very bad neck pain daily. I was prescribed physical therapy and I chose to go to Improve PT because the location was convenient for me.
I was scheduled for my first appointment very quickly and after a couple weeks of therapy my pain had decreased 50%. After completing therapy I was down to little or no pain at all! I feel vastly better and have normal neck movement. I am now able to enjoy my hobbies, work, and activities.
My experience with Improve PT was very helpful and pleasant. Everyone was very friendly and professional. I want to thank my therapist Marcus and the staff at Improve Physical Therapy for all their help.
IMPROVE PT – THE PLACE TO GO AFTER SHOULDER SURGERY. YEARS AND YEARS OF EXCELLENT RESULTS.
Here’s what Missy had to say:
My physical therapy started after having shoulder surgery. In the beginning I was in significant pain with very limited mobility and was unable to sleep. After regular PT with Todd, Tim and the excellent staff at Improve PT, I am so much better and back to my regular routine.
Everyone at Improve was kind, thoughtful and professional. There was also an appropriate and much welcomed sense of humor and fun, which made my recovery more enjoyable.
I am so thankful to Improve PT for helping me recover and providing such a pleasant, professional, and healing environment. I recommend them to anyone who needs physical therapy!

GREAT RESULTS AFTER HAND INJURY & SURGERY!
Here’s what Ladonna had to say:
After falling and injuring my thumb, an MRI determined that I had torn a major ligament. I had surgery to repair the ligament and then was referred to Improve Physical Therapy and Hand Center.
Todd, Tim, and Kim worked with me tirelessly. They are the best. They were patient, considerate, professional, and know their jobs! I have now gone from not being able to even start my car with that hand to doing everything I could do before injuring it.
I will forever be grateful to Improve PT for helping me in my recovery. I had a fantastic experience and I would recommend them to anyone in need of physical therapy or hand therapy. I will definitely be returning for any therapy if needed in the future.

I had a bad right knee – It would lock up at times and I was unable to walk. I eventually had to have a knee replacement. My doctor did an excellent job and when he told me I needed physical therapy I chose to go to Todd Warner PT at Improve Physical Therapy.
My dedicated therapists at Improve PT did a great job. Todd Warner and Tim Davis are very professional and personable men. They are encouraging and supportive. They are determined and did all they could to help, motivate, and guide my recovery. The whole staff is great.

Neck and shoulder pain — improved 100%!!
Here’s what Josh had to say:
I came to Improve PT with lots of neck, head, and shoulder pain. Through my work with my therapist, Marcus Reynolds DPT, my pain is 100% better. He showed me how to do exercises at home and ways to prevent further pain.
The dry-needling was also a great benefit. It helped my trigger-point pan in my trapezius muscle. I am now pain-free!!
My experience at Improve PT was excellent. Marcus was outstanding and the care I received was great. The front office ladies were also very kind and helpful. Improve PT has a great environment, staff, treatment and interaction!! I am very happy with my results.

BROKEN FINGERS – “AWESOME HAND THERAPY EXPERIENCE”
Here’s what Marisa had to say:
A car accident a few months ago left me with three broken fingers – each of my dominant hand. I was in a lot of pain and unable to use the hand for any normal activities – work, writing, typing, household chores, even grooming myself.
I went to Improve Physical Therapy & Hand Center and I’m glad I did. Two months ago I couldn’t do anything at all with my right hand and now I have most of my movement and function back. The therapy was very effective and the staff made my recovery an enjoyable experience. They were always warm and friendly and the atmosphere was fun and light.
I had an awesome experience.
Great therapy, great staff, great atmosphere!
