I worked with Carsten and Elijah 5 days a week for 8 weeks and only had positive encounters with them and the entire team. Not only was Carsten very professional and informative, but the team as a whole was very supportive and kept the sessions up beat and positive. I hopped between three locations and all of them were always clean, safe atmospheres. I’d recommend this company to anyone in need of PT and would return myself should I ever need to in a heartbeat.

I'm incredibly grateful to Therapeutic Associates physical therapy and especially Carsten for helping me find ways to not only manage my back pain, but to have very minimal pain at all anymore. I had severe back pain for months following a half marathon and nothing I was doing helped until I started working with Carsten. After a couple months of work, I'm finally starting to run again and have been able to do more strength exercises again without pain. There are even days where I feel no pain at all, which I never thought would happen after my injury.

I highly recommend working with Carsten and the whole team. Lincoln and Elijah have been inviting and supportive as well. Everyone truly wants to see you get better and feeling normal again.
