“Over the past 10 years, I have had chronic back pain and have seen various healthcare providers with some level of relief. I started seeing Lindsey 5 years ago and she has tailored programs for each of my episodes. She really is in tune with my specific medical needs and talks me through the mental part of chronic pain. I am always amazed at how smart she is and knows what to zero in on to help me improve with each visit. There is a very positive atmosphere at this center which helps with one’s recovery.”
“I saw Jake Kelso for about 2 months. He didn’t just immediately help reduce, and eventually resolve my Sciatica pain, he fully listened to me and cared about my worries and concerns. Each time I saw him he asked me specifically how bad my pain was, where was it hurting, and what activity was making it worse or better. I didn’t just want to be healed, I wanted to know everything about my injury. I asked him a bazillion questions and he patiently and fully answered them all and clearly enjoyed talking about his profession. He is an experienced professional and knows exactly what he is doing. I am virtually pain-free now and he provided me with the knowledge and tools (exercises) to get me fully healed, in time.”
“I went here right after I had meniscus surgery. The team here is very attentive and well-trained. They put together a plan and helped me work through it, and made adjustments along the way, and I made a full recovery. Cheers!”
“Foothills sports medicine did an excellent job of treating me. I would recommend them to anyone who needs any sort of physical therapy. The staff was very professional, polite, and knew exactly how to deal with my situation.”
“I’ve had the BEST care here! Lindsey used multiple creative techniques to get me back on my A-game! I’m so appreciative of the whole team there! Can’t recommend them enough!”
“I’ve been healing my ankle here for about 3 months now and I can proudly say they have helped tremendously. From diagnosing to listening to any of the patient’s symptoms, they do it all here. Lindsey Fonacier is great and always keeps her patients cheerful and optimistic. Overall a great clinic and I recommend this for any athletes looking to recover!”
“I’ve had therapy before but not like here the staff is very friendly, and the therapists are even better my therapist are Lindsay and Jacob there are great.”
