Testimonials from Patients:

  • Tania is the greatest! A real physical therapist that is "hands-on" and involved in all your activities. Her intellect, attention to detail coupled with her general concern for her patients make her "one in a million". Be active with Active Physical Therapy! Rose W. H. CMsgt, USAF (Ret.)

  • Tania is friendly and professional. Due to multiple injuries, my needs have been extensive, and she has expertly timed my plan of care. You will be seen by a PT, meaning your visits will involve constant therapy. She has helped me, with exercises I can do at home, and in her clinic. She is calm and supportive, while encouraging my healing and function.

  • This practice utilizes more quote "labor intensive" methods than though previous PT which yielded better results. Some of the exercises require multiple steps which when followed, gives great pain relief. Nancy M.

  • Tania is the best PT I have been to, for the record I have been to three. She zones in on primary complaint and really works it. She is not afraid of hard work and is very creative creating exercises that work for me. Jacqueline T.

  • Always hands-on, always attentive to detail and always finds a way to make an hour visit feel like a few minutes. Best one I have ever used. Bill B.

  • Tania takes a more individual approach to treatment versus the cookie cutter approach that other practices use.

  • Thank you Tania. Andy
