WHAT OUR PATIENTS ARE SAYING
INFERTILITY / PELVIC FLOOR
The personal care and expertise that Rachel and the staff at Empower Physical Therapy provided to me well exceeded my expectations. In the midst of dealing with the stress of infertility, I found myself looking forward to my appointments as the staff and environment at the clinic was mentally, physically, and emotionally supportive. During a time that I was seeing many different fertility doctors, Rachel was the only one who took an interest in my physical pain and fluctuating hormonal symptoms. Rachel’s wealth of knowledge and commitment to my health ultimately led to a significant decrease in my symptoms and a much needed improvement in my overall quality of life. I am now 8 weeks pregnant after only one fresh cycle of IVF and I believe my time under Rachel’s care was instrumental in making my infertility journey a short one.
POST-PARTUM / PELVIC FLOOR / EXERCISE
I saw Alexa after my c-section. She helped me lose several inches and brought my abs back a few fingers closer. I was discharged today being able to do “normal” exercises without any doming. I feel so much more confident in how I feel and look and am so excited to get back to normal activities. Bring on my peloton and Pilates classes. She also taught me how to modify and what to look for and how to properly do a wide variety of exercises so I feel confident going out back into the workout world knowing I’m not going to do too much or cause damage to myself. Alexa is so down to earth and makes everything fun and not awkward. I am going to miss seeing her weekly! You can tell she goes above and beyond for her clients.
AN EMPOWERED PATIENT
Empower Physical Therapy and each of their therapists are top notch. You receive one on one care in a calming atmosphere. No over the top loud music or therapists working on multiple clients handing you off to inexperienced interns like you will find in most other practices. I would give Empower 10 stars if I could. Right now I am working with Marianne Ingersoll on my knee replacement recovery. Once again, if I could give her 10 stars I would. Need physical therapy? Don't look elsewhere. Make an appointment with Empower Physical Therapy today!
[You] have become our “Family PT Team” having provided great services over at least 3 separate PT courses of therapy – for both adult and teenager members of our family. I have always been pleased with their explanations, their approach, and their clinical knowledge is amazing. I always leave a session impressed with the results. They are always enthusiastic, thorough, and just pleasant to see on a regular basis. I highly recommend either member of this “team” for anyone looking to receive top notch personal care that gets results.
MALE PELVIC PAIN
I would like to provide the highest praise possible for Empower Physical Therapy and Rachel Miller. After countless trips to the urologist, and to the hospital, I was given the option to seek out a pelvic floor specialist.
I walked into Empower Physical Therapy confused about my condition and in severe pain. Rachel quickly educated me on what was transpiring in my pelvic floor. After 6 months of turmoil, I finally had relief both physically and mentally, which was incredible. I have Rachel to thank for this. She is truly gifted and most importantly, helped me get my life back.
Holly has been an awesome resource as my PT for the last four weeks! She has so much knowledge on women's health and how that contributes to the source of my SI pain. This practice is always on time and everyone is friendly.
So far I have been there for the postpartum physical therapy for a month. When I first called in, the receptionist was polite and she was able to book me a time immediately. Also, coach Alexa was able to help me relax and strengthen my muscles, it relieves my pain and I feel much better now.
If you’re in pain and you’re frustrated that your healthcare providers don’t “get” your issues, you should definitely make an appointment with Rachel. She “got” me right off the bat, and I am NOT an easy case: pelvic floor issues, vertebral fractures, arthritis, severe osteoporosis and muscle/scar effects from a complicated cancer surgery. All of my doctors and healthcare practitioners didn’t know what to do with me, but Rachel DID! She has a gift for connecting the dots and getting results. She also has insights and strategies that enabled me to see results after just a few visits! Her whole mindset is geared toward problem-solving and getting relief ASAP.
I’ve worked with a number of physical therapists and it’s always the same cookie-cutter exercises, no privacy, and never just one therapist who works with you and gets to know your body. That changes the minute you visit Empower and work with Rachel.
Can not say enough about my experience with Empower Physical Therapy. First and foremost, unlike seeing 2-3 different people each session at other PT practices, the one on one care you get at Empower, in my opinion, lends itself to better care, and a better overall experience. I was fortunate enough to work with Rachel, and don't think I would have had the progress I had if I were to have worked with someone else. I know at some point I'll need PT again, and I know I'll come back to Empower Physical Therapy.
I've been to Empower Physical Therapy for years, being one of Rachel’s first patients. I’ve seen several therapists during this time who have helped with my shoulders, neck, pelvic floor and knees, my friends and family all have had the same positive experiences. Currently Holly is my PT person. Holly is a great listener, and has treated me as a whole patient and not just a sore knee. The cupping she did on my calves has allowed me to stand without severe pain for the first time in years. The hands-on approach at Empower is the reason I stay. I’ve been to other PT places that use modalities, give exercises but basically never do any therapeutic massage. Empower's hands on is the reason they are a cut above. Lisa and Julia, the front staff, are always cheerful and engaging and do what they can to accommodate my needs. Rachel has done an excellent job assembling the best PT team in the area.
