Helped me to regain some strength!

“A couple of years ago, I was dealt a devastating blow with a diagnosis of a progressive debilitating disease. I had to quit work and started to go downhill with loss of strength and balance. Ellis Physical Therapy and their Aquatic Program have helped me to regain some strength, balance and mobility that I thought would never happen again. Even my wife is seeing an increase in strength, improvement in balance and mobility. They are very knowledgeable, caring, and patient with my needs. They take the time to explain things that I need to know or understand to help make my rehab adventure successful.” – Scott B.
