The Paradise Valley physical therapy clinic is located at the cross streets of N. Tatum Boulevard and E. Cholla Street, allowing for easy accessibility for those living and working in Paradise Valley. This facility offers the following specialties:
“At the Tatum location the facility is clean, all wear masks… Dan is a terrific PT…He understands the body and what it takes to get back to working order….all exercises are specific to each person and the staff is hands-on and very helpful…I don’t know if other foothills facilities are like the Tatum but this place is the best I have been at.”
“I was fortunate enough to stumble, pun intended, into this therapy site for some post-procedure hip tendon rehab. I am much better than I was when I started and I’m hoping for continued improvement as I continue the techniques and exercises they taught me. I have been to several therapists over the years for a variety of issues including this one and this has been by far the best experience yet. Much of the success was undoubtedly due to the excellent care provided by the very knowledgeable therapist and assistant, Michelle and Maden.”
“Highly recommend going to Foothills, particularly this location, for PT. I’ve had great experiences with all the Dr.‘s and techs and would choose Foothills again in the future. They also accept most insurances which is a huge plus.”
“Jaime and Emily are the best! I tore my Achilles and these amazing women assured me I would be back when I was confident I was ruined. The entire staff makes you feel comfortable and welcome and they really care about your progress. If you are shopping for physical therapists I highly recommend you try Foothills they rock!”
“If you are unlucky enough to hurt yourself, you couldn’t ask for a better place to come to get better. From the moment you enter till you are finished they are helpful, they know who you are and there is a general feeling of well being. Put that together with a knowledgeable staff and you are well on your way to recovery. I wasn’t happy to be with them here but they made it worth the effort.”
“When I had rotator cuff surgery on July 15, 2021, the doctor put in 7 anchors. If you ask anyone who knows what is the worst surgery a person could ever experience they would say rotator cuff surgery. This is absolutely true. It is very hard work on my part for this rehabilitation, but it could not be this successful for me without the most caring team, Jaime and Emily, at Foothills Sports Medicine on Tatum. They are truly there for me and cheer me on each new step of my uphill climb.”
