“I was hit by a car while riding my bike, and my doctor referred me to Foothills for injuries to my knee and hip. Even though my injuries weren’t very severe or debilitating, they still worked out a good regimen for me to follow to make sure my knee heals right. My tech, Denise, is awesome about making sure I’m doing my exercises correctly and not overdoing anything; and my physical therapists have been great about monitoring my progress and listening to my feedback about any pain or problems I’m having. I hope I’m never hit by a car again; but if I am, I know where I’m going after.”
“Thank you Kacie, Mikael, Melissa, Alex, Brittany, Valerie, Avery, Jose, and Itzel for your competent, kind, and compassionate care! The Foothills PT clinic staff are fantastic. I have referred friends and family and will continue to do so.”
“I have gone to foothills PT numerous times because I am a semi-professional at doing dumb things. The staff is always very friendly and knowledgeable and I have no lingering issues related to any of my surgeries or injuries thanks to the helpful folks here.”
“I have gone to these folks several times following surgeries and am always impressed with their courtesy, professionalism, and expertise. I feel secure knowing they will help me and that I will be better and stronger when I finish a course of their treatment. I also appreciate their diligence in keeping their facility and equipment sanitized and their staff and patients protected during the Covid crisis. Well done, Foothills!”
