Patient Testimonials

  • WAPT’s physical therapists took me from a wheelchair all the way back to hiking after multiple very serious injuries. They had just the right mix of challenge and encouragement, blended with humor, to keep me motivated and working on my recovery.  I could commit myself to their care – and pushing – because I could tell they had committed themselves to getting me back on my feet

  • As a competitive athlete my whole life I have enjoyed competing as a national level gymnast, attended college on a tennis scholarship, and had the honor of winning multiple X-Games medals and World Championship medals as a Big Air snowboarder. In addition to professional snowboarding, I was a rock climber and tower and springboard diver. Competing at this level required hard training and injuries are a way of life. Throughout my entire professional snowboarding career, Washington Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation was an integral part of my training and injury rehabilitation. Without their wisdom, guidance, encouragement, and support I would not have been able to compete at such a high level after my numerous injuries.

    I am fortunate now that I am a mom of three kids and tennis coach, I can still move easily, coach, teach, and enjoy activities. This is only possible because the staff at WAPT guided me through the rehab process and encouraged me to achieve my goals.

    From the moment you walk in the door until you leave, the upbeat, kind, encouraging, and enthusiastic staff always makes me smile and excited to do the tough work. Not to mention maintain the patience that is needed to help you recovery and be the best you can be. I have so much gratitude for the staff of WAPT because I still have the ability to move and enjoy and active and full life.

  • My son was in his second year at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis when he suffered a major shoulder injury while representing Navy in a downhill ski race. His shoulder was dislocated, several muscles torn, multiple labral tears, and he had axillary nerve damage. The injury required a very complicated surgery. He is also a competitive swimmer, so his doctor took us aside and told us he did not think our son would be able to swim again and would likely miss the next competition ski season. Our son was also at risk of not being physically fit to be commissioned as a naval officer. He started PT at the Naval Academy then came home for leave. This is where the excellent team at Washington Physical Therapy stepped in. They took the time to thoroughly evaluate our son’s injury, review the care plan he had been given, and progress that plan as well as adding in additional therapies that proved to be very beneficial. The WAPT team are experts in treatment and, just as importantly, make each patient feel like they are the most important person under their care. The end result is that our son had a complete recovery, is back swimming, back to competitive skiing, and is currently trying out to be a Navy SEAL. Our family owes the WAPT team a huge thank you. Thank you!
