From day one I have always received care, appropriate for my condition. Everyone listens and you get professional treatment. A program at their facility is set up for you and someone is always there to instruct you on proper form. I especially like the fact that they are open to giving you... alternate exercises for exercises that may be exceptionally difficult, and they are helpful in providing you information if you need to create a home exercise program.read more
