I'm 3 weeks post surgery from a knee replacement and above being on track to a full recovery. After 2 sessions I'm more comfortable and have been able to put full weight back on my knee. Most of the stiffness has subsided and I feel a difference. John my physical therapist has been excellent in... designing a rehab program for me. He also has also explained the reason I have been feeling certain things in my knee and the reasons. He's also hasn't pushed me but knows what limitations i have and explains the reasons and we work together on getting through the limitations with minimal discomfort. Thank you John for all you've done so more

John Catricala was my physical therapist at Professional Physical Therapy. He was so kind and knowledgeable. He understands the human body movements better than anyone I know.
