If Ballard Physical Therapy hadn't been great treating my first injury I wouldn't have gone back a second, and then a third time. They are highly professional, competent, caring and encouraging. PT isn't always the most pleasant experience, but these folks make it fun (almost). And they are just plain nice. I couldn't recommend them more.

I would give the staff of Ballard Physical Therapy a rating of 100 out of 5 if I could! I have been working with Physical Therapist Dr. Rachel, and her aides for the past 3 years for different injuries. The team has been Beyond Outstanding; Beyond Superb in making sure that I become healthy and well again!!

Dr. Rachel would take the time to demonstrate the exercises, and then have me perform them with a watchful eye looking for proper form; time to hold reps; and the number of reps per set. She would have me push myself just enough to get better, but not enough so that I would injure myself. She welcomed any, and all questions on performing the exercises; even explaining the purpose of each exercise in reaching therapy goals.

At the end of each session with Dr. Rachel, she would give me the homework exercises that I would perform over the week for
improvement. I would diligently follow her prescribed program, and would then gain strength, mobility and flexibility soon.

Rachel crafted a home program that made me reach my
physical therapy goals in no time. I cannot say enough about Dr. Rachel and her caring approach to help the patient. She cares for
her patients and it shows!

Other therapists that I had for a few days: Adrienne, and Dre also made sure that I had tremendous, fast improvement with my therapy goals.

Physical Therapy Aides: Isobelle, Audrey, Francis, and Elijah, Becky, and Chloe would take over in the 2nd half of my PT sessions. They showed me again the exercises that Dr. Rachel
had me do, and then also had me do additional exercises that
Dr. Rachel prescribed to help me improve even faster. The aides
like Dr. Rachel watched me carefully for proper form; time for holding the reps; and counted the reps. They pushed me hard like Dr. Rachel to perform the exercises, but not enough to hurt myself.

Aides also had me perform the homework exercises correctly, so as to ensure that I knew them well enough when doing them during the week.

I had 3 different injures over the past 3 years. All of my injuries
no longer exist! I am actually have much more strength, and mobility than I had before my injuries. I have reached levels of success in my therapeutic goals that I did not think were possible!!

Should I need PT in the future, I will not hesitate to go back to
Therapeutic Associates, Ballard Physical Therapy!! I would strongly recommend anyone who wants to reach their highest PT goals to go to Ballard Physical Therapy!!

I have reached beyond my wildest dreams, Physical Therapy Success that I did not think was possible. I owe my success all to Dr. Rachel, and her staff at Therapeutic Associates, Ballard Physical Therapy!!

I've had two visits so far at TIA Ballard and am SO thankful to have found them. The communication is great and Rachel Jarvie is fantastic. I already have so much movement back after months of increasing pain and absolutely recommend them.
