From Mike Wifler: I just completed a six month rehab of my right shoulder following extensive rotator cuff and upper bicep surgery. I selected Catalyst PT and Wellness because I was aware of the expertise and exceptional qualifications of the Physical Therapists and their support staff members. At the onset I was in a sling and could not raise my arm. Kristen Knightly, Laurel Proullx and Brian Wilson created a program specifically for my injuries that enabled me to achieve nearly full recovery of range of motion, strength and mobility. I have been thoroughly impressed with their knowledge, experience and application of their extensive skillsets. Each session was intense producing measurable results as we worked through a series of exercise and manipulation. I can't thank them enough for the care, the concern and the extreme effort they put forth on my behalf. Thank you, thank you and thank you one hundred times over. Mike Wifler
I had a knot in my upper back that is difficult to undo. Brian took care of it quickly and gently, so I had relief in an instant. Not only is he very knowledgeable about physical therapy he is also very passionate about wellness. I definitely highly recommend that anyone with a need for physical therapy and rehabilitation go to Catalyst!
Catalyst PT and Wellness should get 10 stars! I am an RN and I work long 12 hour shifts on my feet; that, coupled with being pregnant with my first baby, put my pelvis out of alignment and I was in serious pain. Just normal activities like getting up from a chair caused me pain and I wondered how the heck I was going to get through the rest of my pregnancy. And then Kelsey came to my rescue! After my first screening with her, I felt better! The pain was almost nothing when I left the clinic and the following days got progressively better with the stretches she sent me home with. I stayed committed to the daily stretching because it worked. I'm so thankful to have found Catalyst! I'm so confident that Kelsey will get me through my pregnancy healthy, strong and pain free! Thank you, Catalyst!

I started at CTS with friends Recommendations. I have been helped by Nikki, Hilary & megan for back & postpartum issues.. Everyone is great & very helpful. I have to admit they helped me get better and on track. I just can't thank them enough. The people here are Down to earth. The staff is very easy going. I would surely recommend CTS.
I had Hilary in the past and she is amazing. I have Kim Z. now and she is equally Amazing. Shes gentle and very kind. Both have helped me tremendously and have given me tools and pieces of my life back.
I've been going to CTS for a little over a year. The staff is friendly and know what they're doing. They have a wide array of time slots for appointments. My PT was Elizabeth L, and I couldn't have asked for a better person to be working with. She makes PT an enjoyable experience. I also have seen huge progress during my time there.

I went to see Innovative Physical Therapy for a rotator cuff injury. I had been living with the pain for several months. When I finally got approval for PT I didn't know what to expect. All the staff there are fantastic, friendly, and knowledgeable. By the time my 12 visits were up, the pain was almost completely gone and I had regained full motion! I have to say this makes me ecstatic! I would recommend them to anyone!
Everyone in this clinic is so knowledgeable as well as willing to look out for each others patients. It is so nice to walk in and be recognized by name instead of the usual office where you are treated as a number. Lindy First has been my therapist through 3 different incidents dating back to 2012. She is the 1st therapist that is aware of everything going on in your life and is willing to make a physical therapy schedule that works well with whatever your lifestyle is. I have been to many, many therapists from Canada to Mexico and this is the only one I will every go to in the future! (Probably bad news for them as I'm accident prone!) I've even had my husband start there after his knee replacement and he too notices the warm understanding atmosphere is like no other!

I highly recommend Ocean Physical to everyone! I have been to a number of different physical therapists and Farshid is by far the most helpful and informative I have experienced. He is professional and straight forward about what needs to be done to get better and his staff is amazing. I actually look forward to my visits.
I appreciate Ocean Physical Therapy and have wonderful results to show for it! I highly value my physical therapy intervention with Dr. Farajzadeh and all the work he did to improve my physical problem. He was thorough and explained step by step the process, great patient/professional relationship, confident and caring, great staff, and comfortable surroundings. I would definitely go back to Ocean Physical Therapy if needed. Nancy Roberts
Farshid and his very friendly staff take a common sense, honest approach to addressing the physical rehab needs of their clients. I feel more educated about how my body works and feel great knowing I can maintain where I need to be to avoid injury in the future. Thanks!

I have had chronic back pain for the past 15 years. I am 43 years old. Most likely the worst damage to my back occurred at a previous job where I did some heavy lifting with un-healthy twisting movements. The result diagnosed by a great neurologist, after an MRI was L-5 nerve that gets pinched occasionally. This past year (2010) I had two major episodes that caused me to lose four days of work altogether. This started out as an unusually bad year for me so after some prompting from my wife I made and appointment with my HMO, Dr Mendoza/Dr Marshall in Lakeside and was seeking physical therapy again. The recommendation was made to send me to the SpineZone. This was the first time I had ever heard of such a place. So around June I started my therapy/training.
After years of back trouble, the staff at Spine Zone finally managed to devise a program of core strengthening that leaves me relatively pain free, active and happier. They have a maintenance program that allows you to use the equipment on your own time. Wish they were open slightly later.
Very helpful and friendly staff. An array of unusual exercise equipment aimed at spinal problems. I started with a prescription for services and now am on their maintenance program. Highly recommended.
