Patient Stories


Review us:
  1. I have been to Therapeutic Associates East Salem off and on over the last 2 years. I started with Jesse Frechette and ended with Cody Lommen. Both are excellent! I have had lower back pain that would leave me in tears and unable to move, a torn meniscus surgery, toe surgery and painful arthritis in my hand. Therapeutic Associates was able to help me with all of these. They have given me “tools” (exercises or moves) to work on away from the office that strengthened the muscles around the painful areas and made me stronger and able to move, and walk again. They also gave me “tools” to help me if I found myself in pain again!
    I have been to many PT’s over the years, especially for the low back pain. None of them has helped me as much as Therapeutic Associates has. I have also been to Chiropractors again and again and again! and could not see an end to that process. They would get me over the initial pain, but it would come back. I thought I was stuck with it for life. After my work on the lower back pain with these PT’s I am free from pain, moving well (and just between you and me) I like the way my body is shaping up. This is the most toned I have been in my life! I love it that they check up on how you are doing the exercises and increase the difficulty just a tad to get your muscles stronger. I can’t thank them enough for all they have helped me with.

  2. Almost 4 months ago I fell and injured my shoulder and then my doctor referred me for physical therapy. Soon afterwards I began working with Jesse Frechette. Jesse helped me understand my injury and then taught me how to exercise my shoulder correctly. He also encouraged me to push my limits for my eventual recovery. Today was my last physical therapy appointment and I am so pleased and thankful for all his help. I am also grateful to have had this opportunity. Thank you!

  3. I was initially referred to Jesse Frechette for a neck injury from a motor vehicle accident. After just the first therapy session I felt noticeable improvement and eventually resumed driving pain-free in a far shorter time frame than I had expected. I continued therapy for arm and knee issues, and worked with both Jesse and Adam Schiltz. Both clinicians were highly knowledgeable and addressed all of my concerns and questions without hesitation. They were very encouraging and supportive, and I found the entire establishment a very caring, friendly place. All of the conditions that I had treated improved within a surprisingly short time. The most striking result is that I can sprint and climb stairs pain-free for the first time in over six years. I can’t express enough gratitude to Jesse and Adam for the difference all of this has made in my life!
