Patient Stories

Review us:
  1. Due to a neuromuscular condition, PT had not proved to be an effective treatment for increasing range of motion and relieving other post surgical symptoms from both shoulder and open-heart surgery.

    More than two years later, a car ran a red light and totaled my car. While the safety equipment protected me from fractures or other obvious injuries, six weeks later, symptoms of internal trauma from the collision began to emerge. My PCP prescribed PT, and I knew from the excellent outcome for other family members that TAI Crescent Village was the right place to go.

    Elizabeth “Lizzie” Treeheart began treatment with a modality called Visceral Manipulation. Over the next two months, not only did I recover from the MVA injuries, but the treatment set me on a path for continued improvement in upper body flexibility, pain relief and posture. Lizzie opened a path for improved health that I didn’t think was possible.

    Thank you to the wonderful therapists and support staff of TAI Crescent Village for creating a place of compassion, service and healing.

  2. I want to thank Sam for all of his patience and his help in getting me back to my jogging. He always had a good plan and motivated me to take it slow, not to rush it. Thank you for giving me my passion of running back and for all of the great care you gave me in my slow recovery. I appreciate it! Thank you! – Steve Cherry

  3. I highly recommend these people if you are in need of physical therapy. Sam Stewart is one of the better PTs I have been to. He did a great job of getting my knee back to close to normal after knee revision surgery. The staff there are very professional and are friendly. I had an excellent experience. Thanks Sam and Staff.

  4. Angela Lewis is flat out world class both as a Physical Therapist and a human being. Following knee surgery and with 20 years of back pain following a car accident, I saw two other P.T’s without much progress until landing with Angela following her return from Corvallis a few years ago. I was in constant pain and had resigned myself to being an invalid before my time. Angela provides a wonderful balance of challenges and support while creatively developing a stretching plan which I adhere to 45 minutes per day. I now play golf, after 15 years of absence, easily walk 1-2 miles, do workout machines and swim. I am fully functioning again work wise running my own small business. I would match up her talent, commitment, compassion, and enthusiasm with any practitioner on the planet.

  5. Angela Lewis has given me hope that I will someday be free of the debilitating headaches that I have suffered with for 13 years. She has been so kind, caring, and knowledgeable. For 13 years I have seen doctors, pain docs, chiropractors, ENT docs, physical therapists, and more and nobody has ever spent the time and attention to my face/jaw/neck headaches as she has. Nobody figured out what it was that was happening to me until I started seeing her. Having a name for the extreme pain has helped me to understand it – Most importantly, Angela has made it so that my head/face aches come half as often. Since my head/face aches last 3 days, this is a HUGE deal to me and my family! I have never been to another PT like her!!

  6. The staff is caring. PT is a 50%/50% job. You need to commit to the program. They will give you all the tools to succeed. If something isn’t working then tell them-they can adjust. It was a good experience and if I need help I can call.

  7. I really appreciated all the help I received from TAI on my PT program. I received excellent service and complete one with vast improvement on my condition. I can’t thank the clinic staff enough for being my advocate during my rehab process. I would highly recommend TAI for any PT needs one may have.

  8. It has been 8 years ago that I first came to see Angela for two herniated disks in my neck. She helped me avoid surgery and I can continue to play golf and enjoy all of my activities. I’ve also had other issues with my shoulder and most recently a knee injury. Once again, Angela’s knowledge and encouragement have me on the mend again! She is the best, and I owe a huge debt of gratitude to her for helping me stay injury free and constantly on the move!!! You, Toni, and your entire team are the best!!

  9. Angela is the best…she’s helped me recover from serious neck issues, shoulder injury, knee injury, and general back issues. She’s kept me golfing, running, and now cycling…don’t know what I’d do without her!! Thanks Angela!!

  10. I highly recommend Angela Lewis. She has helped me so much with pain I’ve had for 12 years. I have been to many doctors, osteopaths, chiropractors, and other physical therapists and she is the most knowledgeable about TMJ, headaches, and muscles that I have encountered. She seems to have a huge passion for helping people release their pain so they can have a happy and healthy life. I now have hope that my severe headaches will be much better. In addition, she has a really friendly personality and the staff is great. The women at the front desk are friendly and attentive, and her assistant Kristi is very knowledgeable. I really cannot say enough good about this practice.

  11. Angela is terrific – at my first appointment with her she was able to pin point and begin to alleviate very specific and complex imbalances that I’ve been dealing with for several years. It’s such a relief to find someone who clearly “knows her stuff.” The fact that she’s delightful is an added bonus.

  12. My pain had me defeated. Now after treatment, I am empowered and it’s not “my pain” any longer. I still have a way to go as far as my arm and neck. I’ve learned how to incorporate the stretching/exercise techniques taught here. Also, I like the way I was shown simple movements that my pain-addled brain could comprehend. Then more was added as I progressed. I especially appreciated having the exercises tailored to me.

  13. I am a new patient, and first of all I was very impressed with the office space. It is new, well organized, and spacious. The office staff was very pleasant and efficient. I do like the fact that most of the paper work was done online before the visit. It really gave me a chance to think deeply about my injury. Angela Lewis was well informed about my knee issue from the paper work I filled out and was very patient in listening to my concerns. I like the fact that she explained what she thought the problem was with my knee with a model of the knee. She did some treatment with me and I left feeling like I had a better understanding of my knee issue. I feel that this knowledge will help me visualize the healing. I highly recommend Angela Lewis as a Physical Therapist.

  14. Angela Lewis is a remarkable lady. Professional, very thoughtful, friendly, caring, and kind. I first visited her in 2003 at the Gateway office on Pheasant Blvd. after trying to get satisfaction from several other Therapeutic clinical specialists in town. None of them came close to helping to solve my problems and I don’t have answers as to why. Other than they didn’t seem to be interested in my problems. Angela listened to me and cheerfully worked on making me feel better. I stayed with her until she was promoted and moved out of town. They assigned another therapist to me and I left because I wasn’t getting the relief I was accustomed to getting with Angela. When I heard Angela was back in town, I found her new location and went to her and made some appointments. I will continue with her as long as she is available. I have recommended her to friends of mine and will continue to do so.

  15. After suffering from severe headaches for almost two years and trying facet injections, radio frequency ablation, trigger point injections, and narcotic medications I requested a referral to Angela Lewis for treatment of my pain. Luckily for me, Angela recently completed a course in Facial Distortion Model treatment. The treatment provided immediate relief, although it’s needed to be repeated over the course of several weeks. However, the results are AMAZING!! Pain doctors only want to operate or give pain medication. Angela wants to get me moving again and the FDM treatments seem to be the answer!!

    Angela is the ONLY Physical Therapist in the Eugene-Springfield area trained to use this treatment method! I recommend anyone with symptoms, whether chronic conditions OR athletes needing treatment to get them moving now, to go see her! It’s truly amazing!!
    Angela, thanks for your help once again!
