Professional, knowledgeable and explain how the body works, so I understand why I’m doing an exercise a particular way. I really appreciate how much I’ve learned, so I can go forward on my own. Great staff all around!

I consider myself a good writer with an expansive vocabulary, but the only word I can come up with to describe my first appointment with Phyical Therapist Julie Dresch and her student assistant Riley is "Wow!" Professional, knowledgeable, scientific and sustainable. And after a clear, forward-thinking diagnosis and treatment plan was established, I was told I could go back to running today, which means everything to me. I still have a lot of work to do to regain my strength, flexibility and balance, but I am totally confident that with this team and this practice - and this plan - I will reach all of my goals.

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.
