"Each individual was unique and special to my rehabilitation. Taking the time to explain and answer my many questions, watching how I performed the exercises enough to gently correct me was an invaluable course correction. The massage before and the pain management therapy afterwards were especially attended to with care and concern. Everyone seems to enjoy providing therapy and take their work seriously. Everyone makes a difference. The front staff was very personable and always greeted me by name, even if I do not know their names. My intake and exit interviews were thorough and meticulous. I have never had such detailed attention. I came in with a chip on my shoulder not expecting physical therapy to help, after having been to other physical therapy places. My experience at ProActive humbles me. What a wonderful staff. Thank you all!"
