“When I first came to Andrea at Vital Care, my mobility was severely limited and my pain level was extreme, to say the least. Andrea started my rehab slowly but methodically as she wisely worked to

accurately determine what was needed to get me back to a normal range of motion and to eliminate the pain. As each session was completed, I steadily became stronger and more flexible.
