- One-on-one, hour-long visits, usually one time per week.
- You always get a vote in your care.
- Do you have too many exercises?
- Does the pressure during a massage feel beneficial?
- Do you have the knowledge and the tools to continue your physical therapy exercises on your own?
- Treatment includes soft tissue work, exercise prescription, education and perhaps modalities (ultrasound can be used for deep heating or deep percussive massage).
- You will have “homework” that will change almost every visit as you progress.
- Everything will be written down for clarity. Generally, your home program will consist of 3-5 exercises that should not take more than 5-8 minutes twice per day.
I had just about given up hope of avoiding surgery for my back when a friend recommended Kelly and Rich. With their help, I’ve had a successful recovery. They are both warm and caring professionals and passionate about educating their patients in healthy movement. They are loaded with specific exercises for rehabilitating injuries and a plan for how to use them.”
I’d be quick to recommend Connect Physical Therapy to anyone with chronic back and neck pain like me. What I appreciate is that Kelly and Rich not only give you their full attention, but also make a point to educate you so that you can practice self-care on your own.
I worked for about 4 months with Kelly and Rich on my back pain. I had sciatica, stenosis, arthritis, and osteoporosis; and the orthopedic surgeon said I definitely needed fusion surgery. Both Kelly and Rich were very knowledgeable about my symptoms and gave me exercises that helped me get moving again. They were encouraging yet patient throughout. Of course, you have to show up and do the work, but if you do, they can help you.
Over the years I have worked with many styles of body work and several physical therapists on chronic issues without much results. When I started working with Connected Physical therapy something really clicked for me, Kelly and Rich have helped me understand my body and lead me down a path towards healing. The name connected Physical is perfect after working with this team for a few weeks felt much more connected to my body than ever before.
I am so grateful to have found this amazing practice!
Connected Physical Therapy is run by two very knowledgable and skilled therapists. Kelly is an amazing person with ideas and optional avenues to achieve your goal. She works with your schedule and abilities, enabling you to get to your baseline. I completely recommend this team for your team.
I spend my life hiking and running. Hiking is my job and running is my therapy, but increasing hip pain was making moving my legs hard because it was so painful. I had just accepted that pain was going to be part of my life, and I just had to power through the pain. I started seeing Kelly and Rich at Connected therapy, about a year ago, and I have been pain free for about 6 months!! They looked at me as a whole person, and worked with me to overcome my hip pain! I still have the tools I need to address issues if they come up again, but until then I am enjoying hiking and running to my hearts content!
Kelly and Rich do an amazing job of working together to begin the physical therapy healing process. I don’t know what I would have done without them. I want to thank them for all their help.
Kelly is incredibly enthusiastic about her work and is a natural teacher; her videos and the information she provides in each session empower her clients to take charge of their own healing. And most importantly, she’s accurate: within 3 days of beginning the exercises she gave me, my pain level went from 5 (out of 10) to 0. On top of all of this, she’s a lovely, caring soul.
