Patient Testimonials

Praise for Cristin Reed

In the past few year I have had several tests to try to determine why my back hurt so much. If on my feet more than 10-20 minutes, I was in pain, so I spent a lot of time on the couch. When talking to Cristin I mentioned a spot on my left hip that had remained sore for years. She listened, checked it out and with manipulation and a stretching program she worked out for me and sent to my computer with detailed instructions, I was able to go to Butchart Gardens recently with the aid of my cane, with little pain. Cristin is so caring and truly listens–I will always recommend her to anyone in need of PT.

From Kristen Kusek

If you’re unlucky enough to have to see a physical therapist (PT), I hope you’re lucky enough to get on Cristin Reed’s schedule because if PTs are magicians, Cristin Reed is Houdini. I stepped foot in her office 4.5 weeks ago in acute discomfort with x-rays in hand indicating my scoliosis (curvature of the spine) had worsened. My back muscles screamed at me on a daily basis and I was struggling with my “normal” activities. I was so impressed with Cristin’s ability to listen, her willingness to dive deep and quickly develop a plan specific to my suite of conditions (I’m more of a calculus equation than simple math!), and her ability to communicate clearly and pivot when necessary to assure effective treatment.  I am leaving stronger than I’ve felt in years – so strong and healthy and positive that my only regret is not having met Cristin sooner. A master of her craft, she gave me the tools I needed to re-gain core strength and muscular symmetry. For someone with scoliosis, this achievement truly does feel like magic! Cristin is gifted with profound knowledge of body mechanics combined an innate sixth sense that allows her to quickly hone in on, and effectively treat, problem areas. These skills combined with her goal-oriented, down to earth, and supportive approach made the process actually fun. On a scale of one to ten, she’s a 15.
