"This is the second time I've relied on Choice Physical Therapy to improve and restore motion in my neck region. The first time was following my cervical spine surgery and the most recent following a motor vehicle accident. Both were a huge success. Not only did they diagnose the problem perfectly in the initial assessment but provided me with all the tools needed for me to make a speedy recovery. These men are all about empowering the patient to help themselves. They are also very compassionate and willing to take whatever time is needed to ensure a full recovery. I highly recommend this group to anyone looking for recovery from chronic pain and limited mobility. Choice Physical Therapy & Wellness are the best group I've found in this region!"
"I work out...hard. As a member of the US Military, it's part of my job to be physically conditioned and tough. I've learned over the years that there is a difference between "hurt" and "injured" and I've done my fair share of "walking it off." And, that's just what I tried to do when my shoulder started hurting. I drank some water, rubbed some dirt on it and pushed through, until I just couldn't take it anymore. I was injured. I'd been training hard to get back in shape after having a baby. I had registered for my first of 3 Spartan Races; I was tracking to max my spring Physical Training test and I had this nuts idea of running my first half-marathon. I was in the best shape I've been in for years. I was on a roll! But, I just couldn't grit out the shoulder pain any longer. I went to the doctor, and sobbed in her office as she told me that I couldn't train, needed to stop, had to rest, couldn't lift and shouldn't do push ups. SOBBED, I tell you...SOBBED. She referred me to physical therapy and told me that they'd have me working with some resistance bands to strengthen my shoulder. She made her recommendation for a Therapist, but I insisted on going to Choice PT. You see, I've had back issues since high school. HAD (past tense), until I finally went to Choice! Until then, I had accepted the chronic back pain as something I'd just live with. Not so! So, I made my appointment (scheduling was super easy). I saw Ryan. He did his own assessment and immediately told me that the findings on my MRI were incidental and that my pain wasn't coming from the tear in my labrum or rotator cuff. He said he could fix me! After that very first day, I felt better. He released me back to training at my pace. After the second visit, I was fairly free of symptoms at all.
It's been a couple months now since I finished PT for my shoulder and I've not had any problems! The push-ups that landed me on my face and subsequently in my doctor's office cause me no pain! I can bench press without pain.
If I'd have gone somewhere else, I'm certain that I'd have been sitting with an oversized rubber band, treating the incidental findings on the MRI until it finally didn't work and I ended up having surgery (that also wouldn't have addressed the issue). Ryan's critical look at my symptoms and assessment sorted out the real issue of my pain and his incredible knowledge of the mechanics of the body allowed him to provide me with exactly the right treatments to solve my issue.
I hope to stay uninjured, but if not, I know exactly where I'll go!"
"I have suffered from back pain the majority of my adult life and unfortunately all efforts to correct it have been unsuccessful until my introduction to Choice PT. I have tried doctors, physical therapy, and other avenues, nothing has ever helped. Recently i had an episode where the pain and decreased flexibility rendered me unable to perform my required daily activities. After being looked over thoroughly by a spinal doctor I was referred to Choice PT, he spoke very highly of them. It is hard for me to describe how impressed i am with the care I received, their approach is very different than anything I have experienced. On the first visit they have you do various different things and study your movement, this allows them to determine what is causing the problem and how to fix it. Exercises and stretches are tailored to you and your problem and modified and increased as you are ready. You are made aware of how to change daily activities that have been contributing to your problem as well as how to identify when and how to prevent future problems. In the end the proof is in the pudding, I have less pain and a greater range of motion than I have in years and it's still improving. I only wish i had been introduced to Choice PT sooner."
"I broke my back a few years ago and tried various physical therapy specialists and offices. None of them helped the way Choice Physical Therapy did. Everyone was so nice and helpful. I felt like they really cared and I wasn't just another appointment and co-pay. They felt invested in my health and improvement. They didn't simply tell me something to do and walk off, they would stay with me, watch and gave tips and encouragement. I was lucky to work with Will and Ryan. They were funny, enthusiastic, positive, and incredibly helpful. They taught me various tips from how to properly sit, lift items, and exercises to do at home and the gym. They would give me print-out directions with photos in case I would forget, which I still use. They were great about scheduling appointments with me and would even stay late so I wouldn't have to miss work to come. The front office staff are always incredibly kind and friendly. I'm really glad I went to them and got the help I needed in a relatively quick time."
"I had the good fortune of being connected to Daniel Perry and William Freeman after many months of struggling to find proper care. I am in my early 30’s and in good health other than what was, at the time, a herniated disc at L5/S1. I live in Atlanta where, after my symptoms began, I saw two orthopedic surgeons, a physical therapist, and a chiropractor. I was forced to come to Virginia to stay with family because of the debilitating nature of my condition, where I saw another orthopedic surgeon, a physician’s assistant, a second chiropractor, a D.O., and two additional physical therapists. I went through months of pain medication, three epidural injections, use of a TENS unit, heat/ice, and almost complete bed rest because I was unable to function on a meaningful level.
Fortunately, in a twist of fate, I was connected with the team at Choice Physical Therapy Christiansburg after months of constant pain. I was understandably quite skeptical, as this was my fourth attempt at physical therapy for treatment and I had minimal results from anything in the past. My doubts quickly turned to hope after my first appointment when, after application of a simple extension exercise, the pain that radiated down my legs started to subside. Mr. Perry and Mr. Freeman listened to me in a way that nobody had before and, as a result of this individualized attention, along with the effectiveness of the McKenzie techniques, I saw continual improvement over the course of the next few months. They provided me with the support I needed to grow physically and to rebuild mentally and emotionally during this very challenging time. I was discharged from treatment and able to return to Atlanta and they still remain available to me by phone if I need continued support.
I will always feel that Mr. Perry and Mr. Freeman were the major factor in my recovery from this condition and, ultimately, in restoring my quality of life. I am happy to report that, not only am I back to my normal activities, but I have recently started running, which I never would’ve believed to be a possibility. I want to express my appreciation and delight in knowing they are working every day to provide the same level of support and relief to others in need. I could not recommend a group more highly than the team at Choice Physical Therapy Christiansburg."
"Choice Physical Therapy, thank you from the bottom of my heart. Ryan, you are such a down to earth/ professional guy that helped me get back on my feet after suffering a serious lower back injury. He really took time to find out exactly what was wrong and treating the injury from there. Will, thank you for working with me and pushing me each session to get better, you are a true professional and really good guy to work with. Celena and Rita, thank you ladies so much for working with me with my schedule, you ladies are awesome. Thank you all so very much, I walked out feeling like a new person. I would not go anywhere else for therapy, I would recommend them to anyone : )"
"I had to have my knee scoped and was told I had to go to PT, Choice was recommended to me by a friend and it was a great choice! Will and Ryan are the best they are so understanding and work with you with thoughtfulness to your needs. Highly recommend and the office staff is friendly and works to get your appointments to suit you."
"Dan Perry had my tendinitis in my wrist completely gone within 2 weeks, and 2 visits. I answered a series of specific questions regarding my pain, and Dan deduced my actual pain was from my neck. He gave me exercises to stretch my back and nearly all my pain was gone. Then he showed me how to stretch my wrist, and now, I am able to live life without pain and without medications. It was a pleasure to see someone enjoy their work as much as Dan enjoys his. Thanks a million!"
"Will and Ryan were great to work with! Everyone there is so nice, and the atmosphere is casual yet professional. They genuinely want to know how you're doing and are eager to get you back to 100%. I would recommend them to anyone considering which physical therapist to see."
"I had had degenerating knees for a long time, and Lyme disease made it so I could not walk or move without pain. The Lyme disease disappeared and yet the painful knees remained. Time for the physical therapist! Says Ryan: " It is Your Lumbar spine." I didn't believe him, but he was right! After two months of weekly visits and daily exercise at home my legs have straightened out. There is more work to be done, but Ryan always has new exercises up his sleeve, and the work is always exciting. I trust him as he has proven himself trustworthy. I always look forward to my weekly visit!"
"This is the best PT practice I have found in VA . They are effective, efficient and honest and experienced in their specialized techniques. They are also kind and friendly. I am grateful to them for their care and recommend them to my family and friends."
"Top-Notch!! Hands down the best in the business. Ryan and Will are knowledgeable and compassionate. Office is efficient and clean."
"My husband and I have both been treated here with positive results. They work on your problems without injections and as few medications as possible. They seem to be able to solve our back, hip and shoulder pains with amazing results. I would highly recommend giving them a try."
"Great place - friendly staff. Had been having back pains for months. Went to PT here and have completely resolved my issues. Dan and the team are great!"
"AMAZING!! I have seen these guys over the last 4 years. Had a few episodes in the past where I couldn't walk due to pain. One recently where I had a torn disc and couldn't walk at all, I was back on my feet the same day!!"
"I was having lower back pain and went to Choice hoping they could help, and they did. They listened as I described the pain I was having and came up with a plan to help me. Everyone there was knowledgeable, friendly and courteous. I highly recommend them to anyone needing physical therapy."
"Would definitely recommend. Ryan is my therapist. He is very educated, Explains everything you want to know, and has really helped me with my pain. Great place with awesome people"
"I recently went through a regimen of Physical Therapy for a herniated disc. I was evaluated by Ryan and had therapy with Ryan and Will Freeman and I feel that it was a success. I am feeling much better and moving much better than I was when I started there. I am now doing the exercises they recommended at home and getting along well. I would highly recommend Choice Physical Therapy for your therapy needs."
-Judith R Combs
"The staff are absolutely awesome. Ryan did a fantastic job. Everyone was so nice"
"My wife and I both have been patients at Choice Physical Therapy; her for disabling spinal pain and I for long-term elbow pain. Each of us had been to other health providers and received poor results. Both of us are now pain free. The diagnostic proficiency, treatment protocol, and therapeutic outcome for me and my wife has been far beyond our hopes and expectation. These clinicians are truly performing at a different clinical level than other providers and clinics.
If you are experiencing unremitting pain, please see your family physician for a referral to Choice Physical Therapy. We think you will be amazed at your result. I have nothing but praise for this clinic. All you have to lose is your pain."
"I have been to therapy multiple times for reoccurring back issues and Choice is the best therapy I have been to and it's been a major difference with my neck. I would highly recommend them.Their staff are very knowledgable and great at explaining things."
"Great experience with Dan and Will they are miracle workers.They helped me get a normal life back from debilitating neck and back pain."
"I went to Choice after being seen in the emergency room four times with no relief, only medication to ease the pain. I woke up one morning with tremendous pain shooting from my lower neck down my right arm. I became unable to function and do even the smallest of tasks on a daily basis. I had even told my husband, because the pain was so bad, that I really did not care if I didn't wake up the next morning. As a last resort, I was sent to a spine specialist in Radford, Va that sent me directly to Choice. After my very first appointment, I was feeling some relief. After only four appointments, I was able to resume almost all of my normal activities. I can not begin to tell you how much Choice and Ryan improved not only my symptoms, but my outlook on life. I thought my case was hopeless since no one had even been able to locate the source of my issues. To say I would recommend Choice would be a total understatement. For me, they are the life savers that made my life worth living again!!!"
"Ryan Tauzell is the best physical therapist I have experienced. Before moving to Christiansburg, I lived in Atlanta and used several physical therapist. He is truly the best!"
"Dan and Will were amazing! if it were not for these guys I would still have back pain. When you go from having pain that is a 10 to waking up wondering how long it is go to start hurting again and it doesn't, it is a wonderful feeling. I can not express how thankful I am for this guys! Oh, and I can't leave out Selena their office specialist, she was always very pleasant, and helpful."
"I was recommended to choice and I love this place..
Everyone there are friendly and kind...I would recommend Choice Therapy to everyone I know that needs therapy...THEY ARE AWESOME.."
"If I could give Dan more than 5 stars I would. I went to him after seeing Dr. Grubb about chronic back pain due to a an injury 15 years ago. Dan worked with me for several weeks, and followed his motto of "If there is no improvement in a couple of sessions, other alternatives need to be looked into". Which was different compared to all of the other PTs I'd been to over the years, and it was a breath of fresh air. He then sent me back to Dr. Grubb because Dan knew what I knew, that the only way to fix it was surgery.
I had a 3 level fusion 16 months ago, and my life has dramatically changed for the better. I am back to doing everything I wanted to do, but couldn't because I knew I would be crippled for several days after; Playing with my young kids, gardening, riding horses, running, water skiing, have all caused pain prior to surgery, and now NONE... I could not be happier with the results of surgery, and am so glad I can get back to my normal life, and the things that make me happy. I can't thank Dan enough for his perseverance in getting Dr. Grubb to believe this was the only fix. I recommend this group to everyone I know that needs PT."
"Thanks to all the staff with Choice PT. This is a wonderful place to receive therapy. Everyone was kind considerate and caring. I would highly recommend Choice Physical Therapy."
"Very helpful therapists, I have seen Dan, Will, and Ryan and would highly recommend Choice Physical Therapy. They are very knowledgable and easy to work with."
"My doctor referred me to Choice Physical Therapy because I have not lived here in Virginia very long and did not have preference so I relied on my doctors opinion. My condition was chronic neck pain and headaches, for years. I already knew I had arthritis on/in my neck and was taking IBE 800 3 times a day for years for pain relief. I rationalized in my mind that this pain is arthritis and therefore forever, but I was so wrong! I am horrible with names (sorry) but one of the physical therapist did some positioning and pressure on my neck and I could here my neck move and immediately my years long head ache and neck pain was gone. All my life I always though this bone benders etc; were bull#### well I am not thinking that anymore and nor should you. For years the only thing I knew about bones was break the ones you do not like. However now I know better, if you want to get fixed go to choice they will get it right..."
"I had been suffering with acute nerve pain in my neck, shoulders, and upper arms for about a year. Had a MRI which showed herniated discs and trapped nerves. After a consultation with a spinal surgeon, it was recommended that I make an appointment with Choice Physical Therapy. I'll have to admit, I was a little skeptical that physical therapy would help - I had seen a different therapist (not Choice) and had no improvement. I worked with Daniel Perry over the course of 6 weeks. After an initial assessment, Daniel trained me on exercises designed to counteract the pressure on my nerves. After three additional office visits, I had "graduated" as I was able to reduce my pain substantially and continue to feel better."
"Soon after I had a back injury, Choice P/T and wellness in Christiansburg was highly recommended to me. I am very pleased with the progress and outcome in the past two months. These guys are great ! Very professional and caring throughout each and every visit. My sincere thanks again !"
"Helped my husband so much he would recommend them to anyone needing therapy for back pain.."
"I've had back pain for a long time, and have tried many different routes to try to fix it, but never had any results until I went to Choice. I wouldn't go anywhere else!"
"I am convinced that because of the care and treatment I received from the team and especially from Will that I would not be able to function like I do an a daily basis. I was never a believer in physical therapy before but now I continue to do my exercises daily and am proof that it really works.
