“What can I say about OSR? I came to OSR after having bi-lateral knee surgery in NYC. I chose this PT place because it was close by my home. At the time I started with them, I was 6 weeks out and threatened by my doctor that I would have to be manipulated if my range of motion didn’t increase in 2 weeks time. When I was evaluated, my PT assured me that the PhysicalTherapists at OSR would do whatever it took to get me where I needed to be. Both The whole staff at OSR worked hard and did their job - my range of motion increased beyond what the Orthopedist needed for it to be. At 11 weeks I was climbing a small mountain. The staff at OSR are very professional and knowledgeable. I highly recommend their services for any PT work that is needed.” - Ricky “My PT is a Graston ninja! :) He helped me heal a calf strain while I was training for a marathon and I was able to complete it pain free (and have been since, almost a year later).” - Eric “The entire team is exceptionally professional and very courteous, taking time to provide exclusive attention to clients coming thru their office. I especially want to mention their detailed process of record keeping and assigning ‘homework’ to everyone. This type of accommodation is incredibly helpful.
