Hear From Our Patients

Angie V.
Allison is the best therapist I’ve seen around. She is very kind, patient and professional. She’s helping me recover from my upper back pain and I’ve seen improvement with only 3 visits. My favorite part are the massages. Will definitely recommend it.
Belkis H.
Allison was absolutely awesome!! She helped me to get on a good place after my hip replacement surgery. She is Knowledgeable, Patient, Kind and gentle makes you accountable 😊. I strongly recommend her if you’re in need of PT.Thank you!!! Allison
Edward F.
Allison is a great PT. She has helped me with knee,spine,neck, and shoulder. I strongly recommend going to her if you need PT and are in pain!
Karen R.
Had the distinct pleasure of working with Allison, who is phenomenal. Deeply knowledgeable, kind, patient, funny, and willing to push you just the right amount to make progress without pain. She is generous with her considerable expertise and gives you the tools to maintain and build on your... progress wherever you more

I came in having what I thought were reasonable expectations. It had been over a year since I had been able to run with any consistency and without pain due to tendonitis in my ankle. My goal was to be able to run 10 miles a week without pain or further damage.Sure, sure, the facility is clean,... well organized, well equipped and, for those of you who like to hear about the parking in a review, the parking lot is AMAZING (so many spots!), but it's the people who make this place truly special. I can honestly say it is the most positive experience I have had in a medical setting. I worked directly with, first, Allison and then Kate.Right from the first day Allison took a holistic approach, recognizing that the ankle, although an expression of the problem, was not the whole problem unto itself. We were immediately able to define goals and metrics for the treatment which helped me take ownership of the entire process (probably one of the most important aspects in achieving wellness in any area).Kate also took a holistic, but very distinct, approach. Every time I went in she had something new, interesting and challenging for me to work on. Most of what she gave me I was able to translate into part of my at-home routine.Almost immediately, I realized that Kate, with her inexhaustible enthusiasm, would be able to get me to accomplish more than I had initially thought possible. I was able to double my goal.During the course of the treatment she worked her way from the problem ankle pretty much up to my head, expertly identifying and addressing contributing issues along the way. She was able to assess my running style (haphazard by my own estimation) and give me pointers on how to improve it. Overall, she is highly knowledgable, efficient, fully engaged, and a lot of fun to work with.Generally, as a burgeoning curmudgeon, I am able to find at least some fault with almost anything. Frankly, I'm at loss here. Overall a great place, wonderful people and a thoroughly beneficial/enjoyable experience. I left here having learned a lot, and in a much better place than I expected to be more

Kate at Professional PT has helped me with neck pain and more recently with hip pain. These PTs are all very knowledgeable about the body and how to work back to a pain free life. They ask all sorts of questions to get to the sources of pain, from how you work, sleep and drive. I am so impressed... with how a few tips, a good exercise program and continued work at home can really improve symptoms. If you are struggling with pain, talk to your doctor and starting PT and call Professional PT on River Rd! Ask for Kate or Anne!read more
Michael C.
What a great experience, I spent about 5 months recovering from my ACL surgery here. Allison, Rachel, and the whole team were kind, knowledgeable, motivational, and just fun to be around. They genuinely are invested in your personal recovery process and you can feel it. I would absolutely recommend... this facility and this team. Thank you all for the help along the way!read more
Catherine C.
Alison and her team are phenomenal! I’ve had PT in the past after a car accident and never felt it benefited me much. I’ve had a complex tear in the lateral meniscus for over 8mo that my surgeon wanted to operate on. I was told to try and do PT, specifically at this clinic. It’s been about 5 weeks... and I finally feel like this could actually heal without surgery. I’m so grateful to have them help me through my more
Brittany W.
Allison and her team are the best! I have known Allison for over 20 years and wouldn't trust anyone else for my own PT needs and PT needs of the athletes I coach. Highly recommend!
kim B.
I have Allison Stringer as my Physical therapist.. she is amazing I am a hockey player I’ve been struggling with patella instability and Allison allowed me to avoid surgery by helping me improve the muscles around the knee to help keep in place. I am so grateful to her!! I didn’t miss a season and... was able to get back to playing! When my knee acts up I go see Allison and she helps me get back on track! Highly recommend!! My orthopedic surgeon was so impressed with the results!read more
soledad G.
Allison is, by far, the best PT I've met. For a year or so, I suffered with many aches and injuries with no solution insight until I found Allison. She truly listened to me and has been treating me with professionalism and compassion. She is very knowledgeable and has taken her time to guide in the... path of recovery. She has given me renewed hope that I can heal and return to normal activity. I could not be more grateful for Allison and her more
John M.
I have had experience with several physical therapy facilities and physical therapists. Allison Springer is by far the best of all that I have experienced. She tailors her sessions not only to the patient but to the situation at the time. She is consistent and listens well to the patient both... indescription of the problem and execution of the exercise. There is no rote method; rather she adopts the program to the patient's needs. She explains why and how each part of the program is beneficial to each patient. She creates a pleasant atmosphere in a nice setting. And the results are terrific. All in all I rate her above all of the physical therapist I have experienced and would seek her out if I have any more
Jean C.
Allison and her crew are excellent at their job! Took me from daily pain to feeling human again in a short time. Always professional, attentive and knowledgeable. A real pleasure to work with in a time of need. Highly recommend for all your aches and pains! Don't hesitate, call today!Thank... you Allison! You are the best!read more
James J.

Sarah C.
“You don’t know what you don’t know”. I never thought regular custom exercises would actually alleviate my lower back pain. I look forward to coming here. Allison has great energy and I most certainly feel better when I leave, than I do when I arrive. Thank you Allison!
Raincoat A.
I signed up for physical therapy to address severe back pain. Ali was absolutely wonderful and succeeded in reducing my pain to a point where I no longer had to consider spinal injections or surgery. I would highly recommend this company and specifically Allison as a top-notch physical therapist... with many years of more
Jody L.
Allison, Mitch and team are the best. I highly recommended them. I had 2 disc fused on 11/22 and I am back to working out and playing tennis. I could not have done this without their help. Thank you so much. I'll miss seeing you all.
Mia R.
Allison and Mitch were extremely helpful in getting my shoulder back to normal. They were very patient and knowledgeable about my problem and never hesitated to help me understand how the different exercises were working different areas and parts of my shoulder. They were very friendly which helped... to make the atmosphere comfortable for everyone there. The location is very convenient and the clinic was very clean. I appreciate all their work and would recommend them to anyone who needs any type of physical therapy. Thank you!read more

Yes, highly likely! Alison and team were very knowledgeable about my type of knee injury/weakness. They showed/taught me a series of effective exercises to build strength in muscles that support my knee. I'm confident that by following my exercise regimen, my knee will become more stable and I'll... be able to confidently participate in more day to day more
My experience at Professional Physical Therapy was great! I had Allison take care of me after my ankle surgery and I feel great now. She was very patient and while working with me even though she was seeing me for months. I even recommended my Grandma and Grandpa.
Joan K.
Alison is amazing - she is helping me with my back & shoulder issues and I am making progress. I have been to many different physical therapists over the years and she is by far the very best
I am seeing Allison at ProEx for overuse injury from figure skating. She is very knowledgeable about the sport, friendly, and professional. I've been to ProEx 3x so far and feel the improvement. Prescribed exercise routine is effective and challenging. I highly recommend!

Sid D.
I went to see PT for chronic ankle pain and knee pain. I had heard about Allison and was pleasantly surprised that she was my therapist. Few weeks of PT with her have been very helpful. The sessions not only helped reduce the pain but more importantly Alison taught me the right way to do various... stretches. I’m incredibly grateful to her. Also the PT facility is very clean and comfortable. Highly recommend!read more

I have had such a great experience at Pro PT! Allison is so knowledgeable and has been extremely helpful in my recovery and healing process. She is certainly the best I have had!

The Therapists here are very professional and care about their patients.It is always good to see someone go an extra mile to make things better for you..
Eliana F.
Allison has been amazing to work with, she’s incredibly patient and knowledgeable. Living with chronic pain for various years I didn’t think there was much that could alleviate my day to day pain. Since starting PT with Allison & continuing to implement what I’ve learned, outside the office, I’ve... been able to get back to doing some activities I haven’t been able to do in more
Jarrod F.
My first time doing physical therapy, I wasn’t looking forward to it at all. Allison was great! Her calm, easy going demeanor made it very comfortable. It’s clear that she’s been doing this for a long time and knows her stuff. After about 5 visits she was able to get my ankle working and get me... back to work! Next time I break or hurt something I’m coming back to Andover.Thank you!read more
James H.
Allison is knowledgeable, caring and down-to-earth, a combination that makes for an excellent physical therapist. Dylan was also great! Look forward to working with them again.
Michele F.
The staff is beyond amazing here! They have already helped me tremendously and I just started not to long ago. Before coming to professional physical therapy I was very upset about not being able to walk due to a spine injury. Now that I am working with the team here I know I am going to get... better! I am so grateful I have them in my corner pushing me to do my best. It is going to be a long, hard journey for me to walk again but I’m glad I have them to help me reach my goals!read more

I have been an on going patient of Allison Stringer throughout my life for various injuries. She is an incredibly talented physical therapist with vast knowledge on how to handle all injuries including my severe neck injury. I highly recommend booking with her, I would consider it life changing.

Allison and the staff in Andover treated my son and they were very professional and accommodating to all of his needs. Thank you!!

My experience with Professional PT Andover has been excellent. Allison Stringer was able to quickly and accurately diagnose the problems with my knee. In just a few weeks my knee has felt stronger than it has in years.
Spencer H.
I love Pro PT! They have been so supportive during my ACL and meniscus recovery. All the staff have been super friendly and I know they genuinely care about me and my recovery.
Tim K.
I can't rave enough about the staff at Professional Therapy in Andover, Ma. In the past I have needed PT and I never cared for the results I got from another company. This is why I searched for a new PT location for my next rehab. I was so lucky to have chosen Professional Physical Therapy in... Andover. The staff which is headed by Kate and assisted by Rob is something I've never had the pleasure to enjoy in rehab before. I just recently met the newest member Alicia on my last rehab appointment and for sure Alicia fits in very well with the "vibe" of this location. I believe the tone is set by the Director Kate and I see first hand how the staff interacts with all of the clients no matter the age or rehab needed. It is a highlight of my day when I have an appointment there. I've had great results with my rehab for my injuries and follow up to my surgery.Kate explains what she will be doing and between the rest of the staff set goals/results for me to reach. I could go on but all I can say is check out the PT location and enjoy the results you will see and also enjoy the "vibe" this team puts out each and every visit.Tim more
Yaman S.
I was treated mostly by Dr. Alicia (Therapist) and assisted by Rob (Trainer) at the The Professional Physical Therapy in Andover, MA. Also, met Dr. Kate for a few sessions. I am very pleased with the overall experience. Everyone at the facility was very professional, knowledgeable and friendly. Not... only was I treated with good therapy but also was helped with the coaching/ongoing workout plans for maintaining good physical well being going forward. I would highly recommend Professional Physical Therapy in Andover, more
Patrick M.
Wednesday and Friday mornings (7am!) quickly became week highlights. Kate Gleason, PT, DPT and her teammate, Rob are outstanding at what they do. The space is clean and orderly, their hours are convenient for the every day working adult, the therapy is specific and tailored to you, and the RESULTS... will speak for themselves. As a marathoner preparing for BOSTON 5.20.20, my timetable was aggressive. Throughout my treatment, preparation for race day could not take a seat on the sidelines; I had to keep running, running hard throughout. Kate and Rob knew and acknowledged this; together we made it work. Road to recovery.I was discharged today with a complete to do list of exercises and stretches to stay on top of and was encouraged to e-mail with Kate if anything come up. I am feeling much more confident, and pain-free. HIGHLY RECOMMEND Andover Professional more
Tom M.
Kate and Rob are a great team. After working with them my shoulder feels better.Highly recommend this rehab
Justin K.
I’ve been to several other PT's over the years, and this is far and away the best. Kate and Rob create such a welcoming, fun and motivational environment that it’s truly a pleasure to be there. You wouldn’t think you could have a great time while rehabbing/working through aches and pains but it’s... a routine occurrence here. Not to mention I can't remember the last time I was pain free before coming here. The location is perfect for anyone travelling the 93/495 corridor (right off exit 45 of 93) and they have very flexible hours. 10 out of 10read more

I was an athlete growing up and involved as a competitive figure skater from the age of 7 until the age of 19. My passion for physical
therapy started at the age of 16 when I was myself injured while skating and required treatment. My physical therapist was so
supportive and helped me to heal not only physically but emotionally as well. He was a figure skater and athlete in the past, so he
understood the mental block young athletes often experience after an injury and was able to help me through it when I was ready to
return to the ice. As I start my career, I think back to my own experience as a patient, and I want my own patients to feel supported in
the same way.
