Patient Testimonials

Focus has…

Good listeners; I like the one on one atmosphere at Focus as opposed to bigger clinics I’ve been to

bike-fitting service

I’m extremely happy with the bike-fitting service at Focus Physical Therapy. I was so impressed with Burke PT and Focus Physical Therapy that they have done three bike fittings for me. Being a long time bike rider (25+ years) with a leg length discrepancy and who experiencing knee issues, I felt it was important to get a bike fit. As a rider, I know the importance of a bike fit to one’s performance and comfort. Burke PT is knowledgeable and professional. In addition to being a physical therapist he an avid bike rider. I’ve had other bike fits in the past where the person made some adjustments and then told me to just ride and come back to make adjustments. The bike fitting at Focus Physical Therapy is heads and tails above anything I’ve had in the past. Burke took joint measurements, tested my flexibility, and shot video of me riding my bike. To get the most out of riding your bike, do yourself a big favor and get a bike fitting from Focus Physical Therapy!
