To the staff at Therapy Unlimited,
Thank you so much for the excellent care you provided during my recovery with a broken knee and wrist. I really appreciated your expertise in developing the therapy regime to quickly regain my strength and mobility. The pool was a true highlight - it is just a gorgeous facility and water therapy was a key component of my recovery. And of course you all know how much I enjoyed the paraffin (wink!).
But truly, where Therapy Unlimited really shines is your staff. Every single one of you are so kind and pleasant - just genuinely nice people. That makes a difference - it was clear to me that everyone really cared about my recovery. I always looked forward to seeing your smiling faces (well, I could tell you were smiling under your masks!) and chatting with all of you.
Hopefully I won't need your services again for many years to come, but if I do, I would not hesitate to come back to your fantastic facility and staff!If I can provide a reference beyond this letter at some point - please don't hesitate to reach out.

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!
Physical therapy can help you get moving safely and effectively. Physical therapists are licensed professionals with graduate degrees and clinical experience who examine, diagnose, and treat or help prevent conditions that limit the body's ability to move and function in daily life. Physical therapy focuses on the body's ability to engage in movement. Movement can be anything from getting in and out of chairs to climbing stairs, walking in your neighborhood, playing a sport or doing recreational activities.
As it relates to arthritis, physical therapy goals typically include:
* improving the mobility and restoring the use of affected joints
* increasing strength to support the joints
* maintaining fitness
* preserving the ability to perform daily activities
When you meet with one of our therapists, after discussing your type of arthritis, symptoms, pain levels, etc., an individualized plan of care will be designed and developed to improve your flexibility, strength, coordination, and balance to achieve optimal physical function. Our staff will teach you proper posture and body mechanics for common daily activities to relieve pain and improve function as well as show you how to properly use assistive devices such as walkers and canes and even suggest modifications to your environment such as ergonomic chairs or cushioned kitchen mats. Between you and the therapist, you may find different treatment options such as use of braces, splints, and shoe inserts may be the way to go.
