“My experience at Foothills Peoria was refreshing. I have not had the best experience with multiple PT offices, but this office changed my mind regarding PT. I am not an easy patient and I am very verbal however, Will Burelson changed my mind about PT and provided knowledge as to why the exercises were helpful for my back pain. He is funny and knowledgeable and will push you when needed. I will continue to go back every year to gain further knowledge on my issues and the support staff was AMAZING!!! “
“Fantastic team, come here if you need help. There are three physical therapists and their assistants here. Will and Ethan are the two I saw. Just given my issues I prefer Will, but Ethan was wonderful. Both are hands-on, checking in with you often, helping you on the rougher days, and encouraging you to progress throughout. Add in the great bedside manner all around and I would recommend this place to family and friends for years to come.”
“Ethan and his team have done a fantastic job getting my vertigo under control. I have suffered from extreme vertigo and loss of balance for over ten years. My symptoms were further aggravated by the residual issues I have from Transverse Myelitis. Ethan had the exact formula for getting me on the road to a more productive life. I highly recommend Foothills PT in Peoria.”
“Amazing experience. Will always recommend this location. Very knowledgeable staff. Fun, personable and kind. Will, Ethan, and Miranda are always great to work with one on one. The support staff (assistance) always will make my day. With finally graduating PT it feels like I am leaving new friends. Thank you guys for being a big part of my healing process.”
