What Our Clients Say
I've been coming for a few months now and I'm really impressed with the care I am receiving from Katrina. She gives me exercises that are challenging and helpful. I've already seen progress in the strength of my leg and a reduction in numbness in my foot from the disc pressure on my nerves. Overall, I appreciate the knowledgeable and dedicated therapists, the very friendly and helpful support staff, and the variety of equipment and treatments available.
For the past 10-12 years, at various times as needed, Physiofit has provided professional, highly skilled and effective physical therapy services for myself and my husband. Everyone on staff is attentive and cares for the clients. I can highly recommend their services. Ellen Barton
I have had treatment from both Allison and Janet. And they are amaizing. Great accessible location and they are always good with schedules and reschedules.
I'm very thankful to have had PhysioFit and Janet Perrino recommended to me for the physical therapy of my proximal humerus fracture. Having in office sessions focused on evaluating my progress, tuning the rehab I do on my own, and manual therapy is exactly what I was hoping for and is only possible because of Janet's knowledge and experience. It has been great!
Physiofit has been fantastic! Keya and Katrina prepared me for knee surgery and then helped me thru 2 knee replacements. The longer appointments and combination of manipulation, exercises and Pilates really made a huge difference in my recovery time.
Keya is a very professional, caring and highly skilled PT. She always helps me feel 100% better after my sessions with her. I’m so grateful to have her as my therapist. Thank you Keya. All the staff at PhysioFit are very helpful and courteous. One feels so welcome!
This is great physical therapy!
I have been going to physiofit after trying several other centers that did not work for me. As an older adult in my 70’s I needed to find a therapist that really understood how to take care of my many pains and aches. This is not an easy therapist to find, I was looking for someone who both understands the anatomy of an older body but also has the caring touch and sweet demeanor. Well I was so happy to find Katrina who is all of those things she is the best therapist I have ever worked with and has completely help me transform my pain into exercises and stretches that truly support me in my healing. I could not recommend her enough she is caring, knowledgeable, and patient. I feel very grateful to her support in this process of healing my body. You will be glad to work with her. Thanks -maryam
