Good For Your Back Pain

“I was able to get my life back to normal.” Patient Results

“I fell down stairs and sprained my ankle; after more than a week of no relief, I decided to try PT at Ramsey Rehab. I had never been to physical therapy before, so I was skeptical. After a few sessions, I was out of the boot and off crutches. After a few more sessions, I was able to walk and move without pain. With the help of Ramsey Rehab, I was able to get my life back to normal.” Nicole
