Hear from our patients! Coal Creek Physical Therapy Reviews:
Steve, Chris and Kyle worked with me since Aug 2016 and have all been inspirational. Steve was my primary PT, He was a pleasure to work with. He challenged me and inspired me to challenge myself. His positive, upbeat attitude made it easy to come in. As you know, PT can be painful at times and it can be easy to find excuses not to come in. Although, it was painful, it was also very gratifying and I could see progress daily. I highly recommend this office and would return if needed. I found myself looking forward to my next session. On a side note, the young ladies working at the Front Desk are so pleasant and positive, I enjoyed seeing their smiling faces and positive attitudes every time I walked through the front door. Thank you for everything!!
Came in with hip and knee pain – felt out of alignment my knee was stiff and limited my activity. I am 95% better. Hips are back aligned, my knee is flexibility has improved significantly . I have some pain with knee but might be related to my arthritis, yet my flexibility is wonderfully improved. Janelle was so helpful in explaining and listening to my concerns then creating a plan to help. It was a process to gain the flexibility and mobility back but I am so happy to have worked with Jill and Janelle. Great place to do PT, appointment times are good, and the kindness and most pleasant staff, thank you so much! =)
I came in with urine leaking, having to strain when urinating and feeling like I couldn’t completely empty my bladder, pain/pressure in my pelvic floor area. I am 100% better! It has never felt so great to be able to urinate normally for the first time in months! Janelle did a great job at making me feel comfortable with a problem that could be considered awkward. I attended weekly appointments with Janelle that were always helpful. She provided me with the appropriate exercises to relieve my muscle spams, and was able to answer any and all questions I had. Coal Creek Physical Therapy was so accommodating with scheduling and changing appointments. Very friendly, helpful environment. I would definitely recommend this practice for anybody needing care!
A Message to the Owner:
Julie, I was a patient at your clinic for much of June and July, receiving treatment for injuries from a road bike crash in late May. I also received treatment for some older, imperfectly healed injuries that surfaced during the course of treatment. I was attended to by Jill, with several dates filled by Janelle. I cannot adequately convey my gratitude and praise for the work and treatment that Jill provided. I have worked with other physical therapists over the years for various ailments and injuries, and Jill is by far and away the best I have experienced. She is patient, professional and personable – she brings the patient along, step-by-step, making sure they understand what is happening and why. She readily accepts and incorporates feedback and is neither overly talkative nor awkwardly silent. She has a great attitude and is an advocate and champion of the patient, while respecting time schedules of both the clinic and the patient. All of the above attributes, of course, would mean little without results – and I am happy to say that the results are outstanding! You are to be commended for having Jill on your staff and for delivering such an uniformly excellent physical therapy experience through the clinic and its staff. As I mentioned, Janelle stepped in for some scheduling conflicts and provided some very helpful exercises and movements that I could perform while riding so that neck and shoulder strain would be minimized. The front desk staff is friendly, professional and efficient. I would like to recognize Lori in particular, as I interacted with her frequently and found her to be always helpful and pleasant. Honestly, I cannot claim to desire to make repeated visits, as that would be predicated on more injuries. (Realistically, though, it is perhaps unrealistic to hope otherwise…). For now, I can and have recommended Coal Creek Physical Therapy to several friends who are suffering from back and foot injuries, and I will continue to do so. Again, my sincere and heartfelt thanks for the exemplary staff and clinic that is Coal Creek Physical Therapy!
“I CAN WALK AGAIN!! Thank you to Chris and the Coal Creek PT team for all the hands-on care! It has made a big difference! The personal care and attention I have received over the past couple months has been great. I feel empowered and enabled to resume my daily life and continue to increase my exercise regimen. It’s been a long journey and I appreciate all the personal attention to get me to this point. Thanks!!”
Ashley identified the cause of my debilitating foot pain on my first visit. The improvement was dramatic for me and I was able to change from waddling and limping with pain to walking and standing normally without worrying at all and without hurting. I feel so free and “fixed”. I am enormously grateful for being given my “happy feet” back. Thank you Ashley!
What a huge improvement after only 6 weeks! I came in with shoulder and bicep pain after playing tennis on vacation. I could not lift my arm up to reach a cup for coffee. Chris diagnosed what was going on and through a series of exercises and treatments, I am now pain free. While there, I took advantage of his knowledge and asked him about another ongoing issues. I had my hip replaced 4 years ago. Whenever I walked more than a mile, I would have to stop at a mailbox or sign post to stretch my thigh muscle, it hurt so bad. Chris gave me ONE exercise and then a day layer I was walking 3 miles with no pain! He also gave me a couple of exercises to strengthen my knees that have also been beneficial to me already. The best thing about Chris is he never made me feel like I was a big baby. He assured me my feelings after my hip replacement were normal. He encouraged me to push myself and it would be okay. He was correct!! Thank you Chris and the rest of your friendly staff, too!
I was very embarrassed to be seen for stress incontinence. I was considering surgery when my doctor said that Janelle at Coal Creek PT was great and to give her a try first. 8 weeks later my stress incontinence is gone. I cannot believe I was even considering surgery! Janelle was awesome at making me feel very comfortable with a problem not everyone is comfortable dealing with. Janelle is excellent at what she does!
My issues had a few sources with stress being the one fueling the others (injuries, lack of strength). Pain was pretty much like breathing to me. My first consult was Megan, whom immediately recognized I needed AAT. I met with Jill and my first session left me dumbfounded. I walked out feeling no pain and not really being stressed or overwhelmed about life and work. For the first time in my life, I had found a way of dealing with stress/pain! That gave me the courage to open up to Megan about other issues I was experiencing. She referred me to Janelle and a whole new world opened to me. I have heard about women’s health PT and I was happy to experience what a difference pelvic floor strength has had in my life. I understood that healing happened when I integrate mind and body. For years I had done mental health therapy, which sometimes caused even more issues. My mental therapists would always highlight my stress levels and asked me to take care of myself. However, sometimes we just don’t know how to do that. Hearing my mental health therapist tell me I had to get my stress levels under control caused even more stress, because I tried without success. My doctor was in the same category. Once I started AAT with Coal Creek PT it all clicked into place. I learned how to successfully breathe to make a difference, and the rest of the phases tore down my armor and skepticism. Physical mobilization that seemed minor but was very impactful, combined with women’s health has changed my life for the best. Stress, anxiety, PTSD, pain, health, recovery, and life in general are no longer controlling my life. I cannot thank you ladies enough. You were exactly what I needed when my body was on fire from all those overwhelming forces. Thank you for teaching me so much and showing me that little things can make a huge impact in life and happiness. Impeccable timing, humanity & empathy.
I couldn’t be more pleased with the success I’ve had with Coal Creek PT. I came in with PT needed for multiple injuries following a bike accident – from a broken leg to sprained shoulder and several things in between. My primary therapist, Ashley, was able to zero in immediately on the various issue and how to proceed to provide the appropriate therapies. Her manual work and prescribed home exercises enabled me to heal much more rapidly than I had ever hoped. I am thrilled that I was assigned to Ashley. She is a sweetheart and very skilled in her profession. We had excellent rapport and made great use of our time, while still being able to chat and become well antiquated with each other. I highly recommend Coal Creek PT. This is my second experience with them, and each therapist I’ve worked with has been stellar. It is a well-run business with excellent therapists. I feel comfortable at Coal Creek, and know that I am in good hands. I wouldn’t go anywhere else for my PT needs.
When I came to CCPT and Chris, I was in a world of hurt. I wish I could find the words to describe how much pain I was in. I am in this moment, after my successful all helpful sessions with Chris and several with Megan – well. I feel normal – like my “old” (yikes) self. A combination of professional treatments coupled with information and examples as to how I ride “old” bad habits, posture quick daily exercises, and a new pillow) are just small examples of the comprehensive usable treatment and information I received from Chris. I am grateful and hopeful again. Hey, I am back in the gym and spinning class, water aerobics, Pilates, and weight lifting – I feel really good. Thank you, thank you!!! P.S – I also know where to go if I get into trouble again, knowing that comes a lot!”
I started @ Coal Creek after an L4-5 fusion in my back & had little stamina and mobility. Madelyn and Janelle showed me a few easy movement/exercises in the beginning and kept me positive with encouragement and smiles! With each follow up session, the exercises progressed if my pain level was improving. I really appreciated their concern as I felt it was genuine. It has been 3 months since surgery and I feel great. My mobility has improved greatly and my everyday activities are performed pain-free. I enjoyed the personal sessions and felt that the therapists listened to my concerns. I would highly recommend Coal Creek!
I came in with constant low back pain and sciatica. I was not sleeping well and it hurt to sit down for more than 15 min. In working with my PT, for 3X a week, my core has gotten much stronger! I am able to do core exercises that I have never been able to do before, I am back to hiking without pain and I even lost weight! My PT was very knowledgeable and supportive and really helped me understand the importance of micro movements. I am now starting my shoulder program with him. Thank you CCPT!!!
I came to PT with a back injury that was preventing me from participating in the principal activities I loved. As a competitive dancer, this was emotionally devastating as I had to contemplate missing my next season. When my doctor suggested PT, I wasn’t thrilled. Having been through PT several times before and always feeling like it wasn’t helping, I had little hope but was willing to try if there was a chance I could get back to dance. I’m so grateful to have been referred to Coal Creek this time as it’s made a world of a difference. Working together with CCPT has helped me heal quickly and get back to my passion. Thank you!
Coming to Coal Creek PT was one of the best decisions I ever made. Every time I came in, I was doing different exercises that challenged me and my injured ankle I can see and feel the difference. I feel more confident going out and experiencing all that life has to offer. The staff was always friendly and giving you the best support. I wouldn’t change my experience for anything, THANKS COAL CREEK! 🙂
I can’t say enough good things about my experience with Coal Creek PT. The office handled all billing, appointments and communication with insurance efficiently and with excellent customer service. Amanda was always supportive and encouraging about my progress. She was very patient, centered each each, and adapted and modified my treatment plan as my goals or needs changed. I felt I was treated holistically, and for my rehabilitation needs, addressing my emotional and physical dysfunction helped me achieve true wellness and healing. Amanda was very personable and approachable. She shared interest in my family and is an incredibly kind individual. She is a highly gifted therapist and I only regret not seeing her when my physical issues began years ago. What an excellent experience this was! Thank you!
I have previously had PT on my ankle, back and both shoulders at a different clinic. This is the first time I can honestly say that PT has helped me – Chris is knowledgeable and understanding. 4 months after surgery my back is really good and continually getting better!
I had surgery in December 2014 to fix a bulging disc that had been putting pressure on my sciatic nerve and causing activity-ending, sometimes severe pain. Regular PT sessions with Chris and being diligent with my home exercise program shortly led me to being able to resume gentle yoga and good walks. In May 2015, I graduated PT after a few physically tough weeks of work proved to be completely symptom and pain free. One month later, I’ve newly taken up trail running and I am able to keep moving freely, without a hint of pain! Thank you to Chris and all the great folks at Coal Creek PT!
Working with Chris was very helpful. My shoulder is a lot less sore, I have greater degree of movement and no pain when golfing. The exercises I’ve been given have been very helpful and practical. The entire experience has been very positive and welcoming.
I was in so much pain and discomfort I did not believe I would ever have quality of life again. With the help and guidance from Julie and especially Amanda (she is amazing) I am very close to full recovery, just a few more weeks of exercises and I’ll have no pain and I will have my quality of life back. Thank you with all of my heart.
I was involved in a car accident and injured my right shoulder. I have been a patient at Coal Creek before, so I came back. Through exercises at home and hands-on treatment by my PT, Chris Fahs, I’ve gotten stronger. My shoulder is so much better. I would highly recommend Coal Creek Physical Therapy to anyone! They’ve helped me to recover and heal properly — not once, but twice! Thumbs up! Thank you, Chris Fahs!”
