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.
