I had a hip replace and thought I would never walk right again! The operation went well but I had never experienced so many limitations before. Therapy Unlimited was wonderful and showed me step by step how to walk again. They answered all my questions and concerns and it was so nice to have their support. They even helped me arrange transportation because I could not drive for a long time.

My hands got so stiff from arthritis that I had a hard time doing simple tasks with my fingers. Kristin worked with me and showed me exercises to do to help me loosen up my muscles and learn to live with my limitations. I am so grateful that I called Therapy Unlimited for my free consultation to learn that I could do something about my hands. My doctor thought it was a great idea to do therapy and wrote a prescription the same day I talked to him!
