"You probably dont remember me because I was only in PT a few times and it was several months ago, but I wanted to thank you for giving me some good lessons on the care and feeding of my armwristelbowshoulder I took the exercises that you provided, and still try to do them on a daily basis If I slack off, the overly tight and stiff muscles prod me to get back to a good maintenance regimen Thanks to you, I know how to keep my arms and shoulders healthy so I can get back to surfing, biking, and all the other good playing I like to do"


"I want to take the opportunity to say I have enjoyed being assigned to Karma for physical therapy for the knee injury I came in with last monthI feel Karma was the perfect fit and is a wonderful therapist I am a bicyclist and she is so in tune to my need to exercise on a regular basisShe gave me a set of exercises and a homework sheet to come home with and I followed them to the letterEach time we meet she would ask me questions and I would answer them Once I was able to ride my bicycle she gave me guidelines and I followed themThen she gave me a grade percentage so I could ride and add a bit of a challengeOne day I went too many miles and over did it because I felt strong enough, but in reality, I actually pushed myself a bit farther than I should have, but she did not beat me up, she said it was okay just to back off a bit since I was still healingI aggravated my knee and failed to ice like I should have That was my faultI am thankful and feel blessed that she can explain a plan so simple and made this transition and recovery period so much better I still have a couple of more sessions with Karma, but wanted to make sure I got a chance to let you know she is an awesome physical therapistAustin has been working with me as well and going through my exercise routine every time I go into treatment He watches as I do the exercises and won't let me cheatIf I'm not doing something correctly, he is there to make sure I correct the position of the exercise so that it works as intendedThere are days I whine, but he is always the professionalWhat a great team I was paired with between Karma and Austin this has been a great recovery for me As always I think San Luis Sports Therapy is one of the best places to recovery from an injury and recommend your facility when asked"


"I have definitely noticed a difference in my body with training and recovery and performance Before starting physical therapy with Colleen Russell I definitely had a lot of asymmetries in my body For example, my left quad was more than 5 cm smaller than my right side As of Feb 8, there is only a 1 cm difference That is one of the most obvious and visible physical changes, but I have also noticed positive things in training like the ability to maintain my hip position when sprinting and jumping My hips were really weak when I started PT with Colleen and that has been one area of focus in therapy sessions My hips feel a lot stronger and I am able to maintain stronger, more powerful positions during long and hard workouts Instead of fatiguing, I am able to complete the workouts maintaining good form Which is really important being a multievent athlete, because we spend long hours practicing and on competition days sometimes up to six hours, and the ability to maintain good physical form throughout a workout or competition is really important for seeing the best results possible I feel like I can last through an entire tough work out without certain muscle groups fatiguing, because we have been working to make sure everything is strong and stays strong"

Sharon Day, Olympic Athlete

"My injury was to my leg When my doctor prescribed therapy, I chose San Luis Sports Therapy Good choice After evaluation of my condition my treatment was decided and it began immediately After 6 weeks of twice weekly sessions, my leg is strong and healthy thanks to the fine care and attention I received from every one of the dedicated people who work thereWhen I first went to SLST, I was nervous about this new experience But I was put at ease at once I was welcomed warmly and soon found myself in the very capable and willing hands of a great group of people who made me feel important in their busy days"


"We had a player receive what appeared to be a concussion, which is a necessary part of playing sports these days Hes fine and back on the field, but the attention to which Megan Swanlund, ATC for Mission Prep HS looked after our player was unprecedented She was extremely thorough, always checking on our player throughout the game until the time we left the field She then proceeded to thoroughly explain the situation to the head coach as well as to the players fatherNot only was this impressive, but it stood heads and shoulders above what we would have experienced at other schools and remarkably much more than you would have seen if the tables were reversedSports is a vital part of a young mans curriculum and necessary for preparation for life after high school Having and seeing someone like Megan makes people think, stand up and take notice, and occasionally write lettersI was a Corpsman in the Navy, as was my wife, we know the difference between actual care and minimum compliance Thanks for taking care of my player and thanks for being an example to the community in a time that desperately needs examples"

"I had an offroad motorcycle accident about 4 years ago and never got quiteright afterwardsI haven't been able to run and it got to the point walking down stairs became a huge challenge, because of the constant pain in both kneesAfter a complete workup by an orthopedic surgeon, the best course of action turned out to be a recommendation for physical therapy I was skeptical at bestI thought I was in pretty good physical shape and didn't really expect a lot of improvement Huge changeIn less than 2 months I feel like someone hasgiven me a new set of knees the pain I've been living with for the last 4 years is almost completely gone I'm truly amazed at how well physical therapy worked"


"My doctor referred me to San Luis Sports Therapy for physical therapy She told me she was a client and had great relief with excellent results Pains in both arms and my neckdisrupted several years of sleepSide effects from statin medication affected and weakened overall muscle strength I lost overall muscle strengthMeeting the staff and knowing what to expect, in a warm, receptive, environment, where all are extremely knowledgeable, and are experts in getting resultsI felt like my experience was a miracle I'm not sure how to say thanks to a group that relieves pain and saved me from surgeryIf I could tell others who suffer from pain about San Luis Sports Therapy, I would say have your doctor write a prescription and experience the results many have receivedI can't begin to thank all of you"
