Patient Success Spotlight

“Afterbeing recommendedbymyhusband (whohas justhadkneesurgery and was undergoing PT), I went to OSR with a back issue I had been suffering with for nearly a year and which even rendered me to the ER at one point. I am now in my third week of PT sessions and can honestly say I am feeling so much better. ALL the staff at OSR are extremely friendly and welcoming as well as being thoroughly professional and even suggesting alternative methods such as cupping and dry needling (which is working amazingly).They are like a little family and I absolutely would recommend them to my family and friends.” - Joanne They are like a little family and I absolutely would recommend them to my family and friends.

One of the best benefits of being a PT is getting to help people, and the sugar on top is when we get to work with cuties like Knox! Dr. Erin Lee had the opportunity to work with this sweetie recently, although it hardly looks like work when our patients are this fun! We want to congratulate Knox for working hard in Physical Therapy and achieving great results! Physical Therapy at any age!
