Chris A.
Great atmosphere, very peaceful. Good equipment with a lot of variety; any problem you have, they’ve got an answer. I made LOTS of improvement with my problem areas in the few months I was going here.Being a bit of a fitness enthusiast myself, (I can curl a dumbell on occasion) I had lots of... questions (understatement) when it came to learning how to best move my body without causing issues for myself. I thought they’d be overwhelmed, but the therapists were more than helpful when it came to answering any questions I had. They provided me with information & advice specific to MY body that I simply would not have been able to find online. They also would actively assist me in correcting my form as I’m doing the exercises. Trust me, just the presence of someone knowledgeable did more for me in a few months than the dozens of articles and videos I’ve scoured the internet for.My body feels great and I’ve left with the tools to keep it that way for the foreseeable future.read more

Go see the pros and let them help you live a pain free life.read more
Dagmar C.
Excellent experience! Keith is a great physical therapist. He is knowledgeable, professional, friendly with a lot of humor and easy to talk to. He was so helpful getting me back to 100% after an ankle injury. The whole team is very kind and made sure I was comfortable at all times.
Vanessa C.
I have the utmost appreciation for Keith and the staff at Professional PT! After a ski accident which caused a knee injury requiring surgery, I never thought I would get my mobility back. Keith’s dedication, motivation, individualized programming tailored to suit my needs, and his patience all... helped create an environment where I felt comfortable and motivated as well. His staff were engaging, attentive and friendly. Going to PT ended up being something I looked forward to each day! Thank you Professional PT for helping me regain my mobility and strength!read more

Tom at Professional Physical Therapy has helped me make great progress toward stabilizing my uncooperative joints and building strength to prevent more injuries. He's friendly and extremely knowledgeable, easily making adaptations around my limitations and building a routine that works for me. The... Salem office is spacious and clean. Going to PT doesn't feel like such a burden when it's a pleasant experience and you can actually see the results.read more
ROBERT W.
After having surgery done back in November I didn’t think I would be able to do all things I normally do but after going to Pro PT everything started looking great again and my recovery was going well. The staff there are amazing and helped me with a lot when I first started. I wanna thank Thomas... for doing a amazing job and getting me back on my feet and playing basketball again. I definitely recommend going there because the staff will make sure you get right again. My favorite part of being was because of the staff, they always had conversations with me about all kind of things and they made me feel good and welcomed there it was just a great environment and a lot of laughs. I just wanna thank Thomas and all the staff there for everything, I’m walking and playing basketball again because of them and I appreciate everything. I know he isn’t there anymore but I also wanna thank Ej to he is also a big reason where I’m at now to. Thank you Pro PT for everything and I highly recommend everyone to go there.read more

First time ever having Physical Therapy and as an older woman, I was a little skeptical. But it has been a pleasure visiting Professional Physical Therapy and having Keith Cooper as a PT.

I would highly recommend.read more

I started with Professional Therapy in August after a bad fall and broke my shoulder in three pieces. I was a little nervous coming to P T not knowing how I would feel trying to move my right arm!! But from the first appointment everyone was very kind and very helpful, from the ladies at the front... desk, to Matthew and Heather and all the others that helped me come a long way. Never hesitate to come here to Professional Physical Therapy in Salem, Ma. Thanks to one and all.read more
Wayne M.
I have been working with Matt for a while and find that he is one of the best therapists I've had so far. The staff is very good too and helps quite a bit. My condition is improving and I haven't had surgery yet. Pro therapy is the best. Many thanks to all.

Jim M.
Great experience so far. Eight weeks post surgery for a rotator cuff repair and still have a long road ahead, but I'm very happy with my therapy. Great location, plenty of parking, professional staff who are knowledgable and really nice people. Still masked, which is a good think in my opinion. The... facility has plenty of equipment. I expect to make a full recovery with the help of these therapists.read more
Dina P.
The staff was very pleasant, professional, and knowledgeable. They were careful with watching as I did the exercises, explained clearly the issues and reasons for the individual exercises, and got me on a strong path to healing. The home exercises they gave me to do are also very helpful. I would... go again to them, if ever needed in the future. Also, kudos to Steph my individual therapist there. She knows what the is doing and what is needed.Dina P.read more

Professional PT in Salem is a wonderful place to voice your issues and concerns about your body and receive excellent and personalized care for your needs.Initially, people who need physical therapy are in pain and are not okay. So, when you find a team of professionals who genuinely care about... how they can help you, it’s truly refreshing and comforting.At Professional PT in Salem, I am so fortunate to work with Allison. She is bright, talented, dedicated, and committed to your recovery. She’s a great listener and certainly has the experience to back her excellence.Thank you Professional PT in Salem for all that you do! Your hard work is noticed and appreciated.read more
Joseph W.
I started seeing Allison via teleconference sessions in May after several severe episodes of back pain that were becoming more frequent over time. We discussed likely causes and agreed it was most likely disc related. I run and have a pretty sedentary job, so some combination of the two activities... led to the pain I was experiencing. Allison did a great job of explaining pain management strategies and a path to improved quality of life. The teleconference option was great and probably one of the reasons I stopped delaying seeing someone. After several weeks and daily exercises I feel my pain is now much more manageable. I also have strategies to help avoid severe pain based on what she taught me.read more
Dina P.
The staff very pleasant and professional, very little wait, too.Chris P. the PT specialist thoroughly evaluated my issue, then all the follow-up sessions seemed right on target w the problem. I got almost immediate results and great at-home exercises to do. All in all an excellent and successful... experience. Dina P.read more
Lisa C.
I was absolutely dreading going to physical therapy! Sam Rosier and the staff here changed that for me! Sam is professional, thorough, and informative. He taught me the mechanics to avoid the pain that I was experiencing with simple every day activities both at home and at work. I found him, as... well as all the staff to be caring, effective, and very knowledgeable! I looked forward to my appointments! From the first phone call Gilda was engaging and competent! I have a very busy schedule and am out of town more often than not. PPT was more than flexible with scheduling my appointments. No matter who you see at this facility you will be in good hands, Sam, Alison, Chris, Justin, Fred, and Sam all make you feel welcome, and will be a great asset towards your recovery! I will miss them all!read more
Sri L.
Very Professional and personable. Right from the very start, Chris made me feel welcome and comfortable. After a very thorough assessment of my problem, he tailor-made a PT regimen, which was effective. I fully recovered in 4-weeks. The staff was very accommodating of the schedule since I was... usually there after work and was commuting from Cambridge,MA. A big shout out to the friendly people at Professional Physical Therapy in Salem, MA. Thank you!read more
