The staff ensures you leave each appointment feeling physically and mentally better. Being in constant pain is frustrating and it's clear the team at Central is aware and cares. I worked with Rick for my chronic neck pain and experienced the most thorough exam I've ever had. I've been to other PT clinics and didn't receive the same treatment and attention ProActive provides.
"I came to ProActive with plantar fasciitis, which severely hindered my running. Jon Davison fixed this within a few months, and has continued to help me with other running pains, which enabled me to complete a full marathon last month. I have achieved this lifelong goal because of Jon's incredible skill and expertise, the wonderful tech staff at ProActive, and my own dedication. I look forward to many more years of successful runs and races because of my sessions at ProActive Physical Therapy."
"Hip replacements are genetic in my family. I started working with Jon and the ProActive team in 2013, then off and on until April 2017. The exercises and therapeutic massage helped me delay surgery for four years. Finally when my hip was bone on bone, I had a total hip replacement. Three months post-surgery, I am walking great, hiking again and returning to the gym. I know that my recovery has been safe and thorough thanks to Jon and the ProActive team."
"I had back surgery and shoulder surgery at TMC. They wanted me to receive therapy with them. I did, no big improvement at all. Then I was referred to Proactive and everything changed for the better. The attention to detail and program that was set up has changed my life. JD and staff have created the most incredible healing atmosphere. A perfect combination of therapy and personality, which I feel has been so instrumental to my physical recovery."
