Reviews

What Our Clients Say

I recently underwent four months of rehabilitation following shoulder surgery. I have nothing but the highest praise for the positive and friendly team at Southeastern Physical Therapy. Setting up appointments to fit into my schedule was quick and easy with Matt at the front desk. Jason supervised my exercises at times and always applied the cold/heat wraps with electrical stimulation at the end of each session. However, the best part of the rehab experience was the knowledge demonstrated by lead therapist Shaughnesy. She always knew what degree of flexibility I should have, what exercises I should be doing, and with how much weight or resistance (using bands) according to the number of days following my surgery. She also knew which exercises would give me the most discomfort (she was always right) which proved to me she knew her stuff. Each rehab session was pre-planned and nothing was done that wasn’t specifically designed to advance the healing process. Everything was based on her personal experience with previous patients and on well documented medical studies on my specific injury. Even though at times I reached a point where I didn’t feel like I was progressing, it was comforting to hear Shaughnesy say that according to the medical data, I was right where I should be. I would highly recommend Southern Physical Therapy for any rehabilitation you may need.
