“Injured my shoulder while weight lifting. It was a lingering problem for a long time and I was always hesitant to use it. I went here to see Joel and a few neck cracks and some suggested shoulder workouts later, my shoulder has never felt better! I’m not afraid to use it anymore and it’s the strongest it’s ever felt!”
Joel is an amazing physical therapist! He always listens to me and creates a treatment plan around my goals! The buckeye location is very nice. Joel has seen most all of my family and has helped them all. I’m very grateful for Joel and all his help!
