“The team at Joint Ventures has earned my trust and my respect. Each staff member I have encountered has been engaging and helpful with every detail, from insurance coverage to scheduling, to creating a welcoming and relaxed environment.

As a client of JV, I have gone from learning to recover from a painful back injury to acquiring a whole new set of skills designed to improve my core strength, balance and stamina. These, we tend to take for granted, and consequently can lose as we age.  It was important to me to have a plan to prevent future falls.  Taking me each step of the way, my therapist has listened to my concerns and guided me with encouragement and support. Sessions were devoted to demonstration and practice and were followed by an email with instructions for practice at home. As my abilities have improved, so has our determination to work beyond fundamentals.  Possessing exceptional expertise and training in therapy, my PT understood how to take me beyond coping with a birth injury to exploring a whole new range of movement and flexibility. The demonstrable results have sometimes amazed and always gratified me. The dialogue and rapport we have established enables me to ask questions, learn new exercise techniques, and to push myself toward new wellness goals. Designing a program specifically for me, my PT has helped me to gain an overall sense of confidence. As I approach my 70th birthday, “physical therapy for wellness” has become my often repeated maxim.

I recommend Joint Ventures enthusiastically and often. I know that I will return for regular assessment and follow up sessions.”
