I enjoyed the experience and looked forward to each therapy session. Success Story - J. Desmond “I was training for the Boston Marathon and developed hip pain as my mileage increased. I took advantage of CPTE’s free injury assessment and discovered that my gait was wrong and it added stress to my hip joint. With 8 weeks to go, I started physical therapy with Dave. He did a great job in calming my hip pain and modifying my gait so I was running more efficiently. I not only finished the Marathon pain free, my time was 20 minutes faster than my goal. Dave and his staff were professional, friendly, and encouraging. I enjoyed the experience and looked forward to each therapy session. It was clear that every other patient in the clinic felt the same way I did. I recommend CPTE to everyone!”
