I went to Carol recently to get help with 2 chronic, recurrent injuries. As a Physician, I had used referrals to find experts to treat me in the past for these injuries. Over the years, I had received help from a Sports Podiatrist who treats professional athletes, 2 Chiropractors, a Physiatrist, a Rolfer, and a professionally recommended physical therapy group which treats Division 1 varsity college athletes. The results were unsatisfactory since I continued to suffer from the same problems. I found Carol on my own, and was intrigued by her background, first as a Physical Therapist, and also as one who utilizes a multi-disciplinary approach to her patients' conditions, including strengthening exercises, stretches, ultrasound, massage and yoga. Her therapy for me has been very focused, personalized, and progressive. I can comfortably state that I am nearly pain free, and able to pursue the vigorous athletic activities which I thoroughly enjoy. I am very grateful to Carol for what she has done for me.

I recall my pessimism when I initially went to you, after all my prior failed attempts at rehabilitation of these 2 athletic injuries, having used many recommended professionals over greater than 10 years. I was however, optimistic enough to do what you said (mostly!), and it has been very, very worthwhile.
I truly cannot thank you enough! You have made a substantial, positive impact on my fitness, athleticism, and consequently my health. I am truly blessed to have been treated by you, and benefited from your advice.

Back To You physical therapy is wonderful! Carol is fantastic and has helped me SO much. I injured my shoulder to such a degree that I could barely use my arm at all. She and Alex have been able to get me back up and running and let me return to my invincible self. I could not have found a more professional physical therapy center anywhere! Thanks Carol and Alex!
I was in the gym today using my arm like nothing was ever wrong and wanted to tell you how grateful I am for your treatment plan. Between the strengthening exercises, the stretches, the massages (sometimes painful, but worth it!), the heat, the ultrasound, and so on, my nagging shoulder pain is greatly resolved. I realize there's physical therapy, and then there's Back to You! I am so glad I gave PT one more chance.
I initially met Carol after suffering a shoulder injury after a fall. After several weeks I was heartbroken to learn she was moving to a different location. Unfortunately, my injury led to surgery and I found myself at physical therapy once again. Thankfully, I found Carol at her new location and I was willing to drive the extra half hour knowing she would be able to provide me with a personal program. Through Carol’s knowledge and support, her ability to spend one-on-one time in a friendly relaxed atmosphere, and her use of manual, massage and exercise based therapies I am happy to report I am making progress faster than ever! Thank goodness I am able to see Carol at Back To You Physical Therapy and Sport Medicine where I can receive the quality of care I need for my rehabilitation.
After having surgery I was totally unprepared for the feeling of helplessness & frustration I felt because of my inability to do things for myself, I couldn’t bathe by myself, I couldn’t do any of my activities of daily living without help. I am right handed and as you know the surgery was performed on my right shoulder. I couldn’t even pick up a quart of milk my arm was so weak. Since therapy I’ve reclaimed my life. I have always been a very independent person and it really affected my sense of self to be dependent. Carol gave me back my independence and sense of self.
Carol, my wife and I would like to thank you for saving my life, literally. I had severe pain in my calf and didn’t want to call the doctor. You took one look at my calf and knew I needed to go to the hospital immediately. You were right I had a blood clot in my calf. If you hadn’t suspected a DVT and suggested I go to the hospital, I wouldn’t be alive today. If I can ever do anything for you let me know.
Dear Carol, on behalf of my wife Karen and daughter Nicole, I would like to thank you for all your help and attention regarding Nicole’s current Medical situation. Were it not for your professionalism and diligence in the work you do we may not have revealed Nicole’s medical problem for some time. Her doctors have informed us that the early recognition of her problem is extremely key in making her recuperation much easier in the near future, also the early recognition will help lessen the deficits that may occur as a result of the lipomyelomeningocele. I hope you find it comforting to know how much you are appreciated. Words cannot express our gratitude towards you and the work you perform. Once again thank you so much for all you’ve done. You have truly made a difference in one young ladies life. For that we are grateful.
I have been a patient at Back to You Physical Therapy for just over a month now. The results have been tremendous. I came to Carol with Multiple issues: Foot arch pain, leg pain, knee pain, side pain, and back pain. Carol used a combination of stretching, strengthening, ultrasound, and physical adjustments (re- alignment and massage) to dramatically improve my condition. I was quite literally hobbling around when I came into Back to You and am now 90% better in just 4 weeks (2X per week). Carol's knowledge of the muscular and skeletal systems is impressive. She not only improved my condition dramatically, but explained what was out of alignment in my body, how she was fixing it and how I could use home stretching and strengthening to ensure that it stays fixed. Lastly, the whole experience of attending Physical Therapy has been quite pleasant as Carol clearly loves what she does and is a nice person who's passion to help others clearly comes through in her work. I wholeheartedly recommend Back to You to anyone who is seeking physical therapy.
I have been going to Physical Therapy for years because of back issues. After surgery, I found myself needing physical therapy again. All of the places I have been over the years seem to have the same environment - a little sterile, a little like a gym, not very warm or friendly, until I happened across Back To You Physical Therapy!! When I first walked in, I was greeted by the owner, Carol who immediately made me feel welcome, then I glanced around, it was like I was in a Spa, a meticulous one at that... Relaxation and calmness is the feeling that came over me. Carol, as it turns out reflects the space she has created, she is warm, friendly, extremely knowledgeable and yet professional...and yes, my medical issue is solved!!! And now I am almost sad I do not have to go anymore.
I wholeheartedly recommend Back To You Physical Therapy!!
I highly recommend Carol and Back to You Physical Therapy. She is very knowledgeable and found things the Doctor missed. Not only did she treat the pain I was in, she taught me how to prevent it from happening in the future. Carol is very friendly, accurate and persistent. You will be glad that you found Carol and you will recommend her to your friends and family!
Carol and her team at Back to You Physical Therapy did an outstanding job rehabilitating my injury. As a professional dancer, I have specific needs, and their understanding of my craft was essential to my progress. I would recommend Back to You to any athlete as they do thorough and wonderful work.
