We took our 9 year old to Stride Strong to work on strengthening her foot after surgery. Alice Holland was amazing. Shemade my daughter feel relaxed and secure. You will not be disappointed with Alice and her staff.
Stride Strong got me back out running again very quickly. The exercises she gave me were a big help in my recovery. I would recommend Stride Strong to any any injured runner.
I rarely get injured so when my calf strain was not getting better I was worried. My PT quickly diagnosed the problem and instituted a rest and gentle exercise program. I followed the program and I'm back in action again. Thanks Melissa!
My Physical Therapist at Stride Strong is kind, patient & realistic in terms of timeline & intensity of treatment. Her easy-going attitude made PT appointments go by quickly and was reassuring when I felt I was struggling a bit. This has been a good experience.
