David and his team of dedicated staff members are always on the move and ready to assist you in recovering from a recent surgery or injury. This facility specializes in returning patients back to work following work-related injuries, acute and chronic pain, and surgical procedures.
"After a traumatic car accident, ProActive Physical Therapy has become my second family. All of them take care of me like family. I feel better every single day and I'm almost 100% recovered from all the injuries I had. The treatment has helped me go back to my routine and I'm so grateful to have them in this difficult situation. I've tried different therapists, but no one like David and Brian. Thank you so much!"
"Customer service is the best I have seen in the physical therapy field. They showed me proper ways to do things that I never did right before now. Going to ProActive changed the way I do my daily activity."
"Excellent, knowledgeable physical therapy. I had strained muscles and lingering pain in right forearm for 9 months. I was completely healed after only two visits."
"I have been coming to ProActive Physical Therapy since March 2021, pre & post-op shoulder surgery & each visit has been beyond my expectations as far as the knowledge & care I have received there, as well as, being very conveniently located to my home. The entire staff is amazing, caring & even funny. My personal therapist, Alex Lechtenberg, has been the BEST physical therapist I have ever encountered & works hard to get me rehabilitated as well as being gentle. I highly recommend him & the entire ProActive staff!!!"
