Patient Stories

Review us:
  1. Collin Reid was great–able to figure out what my physical problem was (others couldn’t) and help me use exercises to get back to normal physical activities. His assistants were very helpful and supportive. I strongly recommend this team.

  2. Kala Whitworth got me back up and running after a nagging hamstring issue that had bothered me for 10 months. Super professional, time efficient, and realistic expectations. Good combination of stretches, exercise, and trigger point massage. Highly recommended.

  3. Katie,

    I’d like to recognize you and your staff as glimmering gems in our community. Tucked away in a quiet, unassuming part of town, easy to get to with easy access and convenient parking, you and your partners, officer workers and assistants exercise your commitment to improve the lives of people who find themselves needing a little help. People who need to find their way back to less pain, greater mobility and independence, are lucky to find you. To be free to move and do, is true freedom. I personally found you and your team to be genuinely personable, attentive, caring and warm. Together, your energy creates an environment that germinates and encourages healing. You returned me to freedom. I would send to you anyone in my family, my friends and work associates if they have the need to return to freedom.

    Thank you, to you and your team for your commitment, care and kindness.

  4. After finishing my first full triathlon season, I couldn’t be more thankful to the therapists at Therapeutic Associates- State Street! Since playing collegiate soccer, I’ve had nagging quad and calf pain and I wasn’t sure how my body would hold up through a long triathlon season. In preparation for my first full Ironman distance triathlon in Louisville, KY, the therapists at TAI on State Street performed ASTYM and ultrasound therapy on my nagging injuries and showed me valuable strengthening and stretching exercises to allow me to continue to train at a high level. At Ironman Louisville, I won my age group and qualified for the Ironman World Championships in Kona, HI. As expected, I had beaten my body up considerably in Louisville and had only a six week turn-around before racing in the World Championships. By utilizing the anti-gravity treadmill at the TAI clinic and continuing to receive treatment from the therapists, I was able to rebound enough to have a memorable race in Kona. I owe much of my success this triathlon season to the helpful and knowledgeable staff at Therapeutic Associates on State Street. Thank you!

  5. Toward the end of my 2010 track season at the University of Idaho, I began having pain and tightness in my arch. I continued to run on it, and eventually it became extremelly swollen and painful. After the season ended I took about a month off from running, but I continued to have pain and swelling when I began training for road racing again. Uncertain of what my initial injury was and frustrated with the pain, made an appointment with TAI after a referral from a fellow athlete. Rob Barnes diagnosed me within 20 min of examining me; my injury was a posterior tibialis tendonitis. For the next 3 weeks, I came to the clinic twice a week to receive ASTYM treatments and do running specific strengthening, stretching, and balancing exercises. My program was created by Rob Barnes, and I worked with various other trainers at the clinic to complete my therapy. I also ran on the clinic’s state-of-the art zero gravity treadmill, which allowed me to run at a fast pace without putting much stress on my injured foot. After only two weeks, I noticed positive results. My foot and ankle were less swollen, I didn’t have excess swelling after running, and I was running with much less pain than before! After 3 weeks of treatment I came in once a week to receive therapy. By this time, the pain and swelling had subsided. After my treatment at TAI, I continued to train and race; I won the Robie Creek half marathon about two months after my therapy. Over the past few months I raced in other road races, including my first marathon! I had a great experience at TAI–the staff are friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend them!
