Client Testimonial

“I came into Elite Physical Therapy in tremendous pain and had difficulty walking more than 10–20 feet due to right hip and leg pain. They found spinal stenosis at three levels of my lumbar spine, along with L5-S1 facet pain. Wesley did a thorough assessment and found the weaknesses that were contributing to my pain. I admit the journey was hard, but with the help of the wonderful staff here, today, after about two months, I am able to function again as a registered nurse, and I’m able to enjoy an active lifestyle at home. I would recommend Elite PT to anyone. They make what seems impossible possible! Thank y’all for the help. I have also been able to lose 48 pounds (much more to go)! But I can and will succeed now, especially with Wesley and his staff’s hard work.” ––_–-Leah Lyn Fitzgerald
