Cornerstone PT Patients


VIP Referral Patient of the Month!


Whenever the new year rolls around, I find myself reflecting on the past. Our clinic and the practice of physical therapy itself have changed a lot since we first opened our doors. If you had told me back in 2005 that we’d someday be treating injuries with lasers at our clinic, I would have asked you if we were hiring Klingons. But no matter how much our clinic has grown and our methods of care have advanced, one thing has stayed the same: We have some of the most loyal patients in the world. 2019 marks our 14th year in business, which is still hard for me to wrap my head around. We could not have made it this far without such a fantastic, supportive community around us. We’ve been lucky to get to know so many families who have trusted us with their care over the years, and we want to remain worthy of that trust. That’s why we take this time of year to look at ways to streamline our systems and improve on the kinds of care we offer. Think of it as a kind of New Year’s resolution for the clinic as a whole. Expanding our home care services is one of our goals for 2019. The population is aging, and we understand that some folks have a hard time getting to the clinic for the care they need. So we figured why not come to you? From what we’ve seen so far, people have responded well to the program. The very pain we treat can often keep patients from actually getting to the clinic. It’s a great feeling to be able to get these folks moving “It’s a great feeling to be able to get these folks moving and feeling better around their own homes.”

and feeling better around their own homes. If we can expand our ability to provide at-home care in the coming year, we may well be aiding more people than ever before, which is what our job is all about. We’re fired up to make this resolution a reality. On a personal level, my resolution (as it is every year) is to try to keep up with my kids. This means taking care of my body however I can. Type 2 diabetes runs in my family, and I never want the day to come when I can’t help my daughter practice for softball season or run down the sidelines at my son’s lacrosse games. Every morning, I go for a run. I’m not the biggest fan of running; I would prefer going to the gym. But my morning route lets me get back early enough that the kids are still getting ready for school and we can eat breakfast together. After all, I’m keeping fit so I can spend time with my kids — it would be pretty hypocritical to spend that time at a gym instead. So here I am, facing down two important goals this year. If I’ve learned anything from the past 13 years, it’s that there is no substitute for hard work and dedication. On my morning runs around town, I’m constantly reminded of how lucky we are to call this community home. We know that you have your pick of the litter when it comes to physical therapy care. Thank you for choosing us throughout the years. We will always strive to exceed your expectations.

The best compliment we can receive is to have one of our patients refer a friend or family member to our practice. If you refer someone and we are able to take them as a patient, both you and the person who was referred

Thank You! will be entered to win a $25 gift card! It’s just our way of saying

And from all of us at the clinic, Happy New Year!
