Patient Testimonials

  • Excellent care! I have been treated for my hip and my knee over the last year with wonderful results. Lori owns her own shop and pays individual attention to you during your appointment. She really knows her stuff based on her background at the Mayo Clinic. On top of that she and her staff are personable and very caring. I highly recommend The Physical Therapy Zone!

  • I can’t believe it has taken me soooooo long to write a review! Grab a cup of coffee cause this is going to be a long one!

    So, last year I busted up my arm pretty good – no idea how – no crazy, awesome story involving a bar fight or wild night on the town – guess I’m just getting old… well, long story, short, I had to have rotator cuff surgery. Eight-ish weeks after surgery, my dr said it was time for rehab – I looked around for a place that would take my insurance and found one – well-rated (on yelp too. I went, for a couple of weeks – and hated it! I felt like a number, the physical therapist (PT) was assigned to work with me and three other patients – what should take 50 minutes took 90 because I had to wait for the PT to finished with other clients and come back to me. I was trying to do this PT on my lunch break and not have to take extra time off from work. After the 2nd week, I felt as though I wasn’t progressing – I said something to the PT, but I was just stared at blankly. I finally wised up and began looking for another PT. That’s when I found Lori!

    Lori runs her own shop – she is one on one with her client and I loved that!!! She’s a petite thing – and my first day I thought, yeah, she’s not gonna have the power to apply the pressure to get my arm into motion, this is a lost cause… boy was I wrong!!! She like a stick of dynamite – and the more I whined, the more powerful she became 🙂 She knew just what to do, when to do it, and how to do it! If I had questions, she had answers! I swear, I would complain and she would smile and tell me to push harder… but, ya know what, within a few weeks, I was moving my arm – I was lifting things – and I was getting back in this game they call life!

    Haha, just as I was whining less, complaining less, and working the PT harder, she cut me loose! No milking me or my insurance – she ran some tests and said I was where I needed to be – she is on the up and up.

    I hope I never have to be her client again, 😉 but, if I ever do need a PT, she is on my speed dial!

  • Lori and her team, are wonderful! I can’t speak highly enough to the quality of care I received. Lori is a small business owner, which I absolutely prefer, and it shows in her attention to detail.

  • I was one of Lori Alexander’s first patients and knew from the beginning she was the right therapist for me. Not only was the location perfect, but the facilities were charming and Lori is a lovely person with wonderful skills and experience. Her sweet, kind manner always made me feel welcome and anxious to perform my exercises. Her continued work with me prepared me for major back surgery and an early release from the hospital.

  • As a trainer and a group ex instructor, I have dealt with several overuse issues and attended physical therapy multiple times at another clinic. While my experience at the other clinic was positive and effective, they are difficult to get an appointment with. When I suffered a recent neck injury I decided to try The Physical Therapy Zone because they had a cancellation hours before and were able to see me immediately.

    What started as “trying something new” is now “I will never go back to the other guys” — Lori is kind, attentive, and knowledgeable. With her help, I have been able to go from pain that prevented me from functioning in my everyday life to nearly pain-free in a matter of days.

  • Lori spends time with her patients and truly listens to you. The atmosphere is one of genuine concern rather than “time’s up, on to the next one!”. I will be recommending her to all of my students and clients. I literally went from not being able to walk to running a half marathon in 7 months, all thanks to Lori and her team at The Physical Therapy Zone. In July 2019, I had MPFL replacement surgery for a chronic dislocating patella. Lori and her team provided individual care to meet my needs. It was always easy to schedule and reschedule sessions. She provided me with at-home exercises to complete and she pushed me while I was there. I can’t thank The Physical Therapy Zone enough for giving me my freedom back and helping me to recover from my first surgery!

  • The Physical Therapy Zone and Lori Alexander have worked miracles on my back and neck. After several appointments at The Spinal Institute and refusing injections and/or prescription drugs recommended for pain, physical therapy was prescribed. I cannot praise Lori Alexander enough for her professionalism, compassion and sheer perseverance in helping to relieve my constant pain. She tried many different therapies depending on the level of my discomfort and my gratitude knows no bounds. Whatever your problem, Lori will address it; she listens carefully and applies her vast knowledge of treatments to best relieve pain and discomfort. She is constantly expanding her knowledge by attending classes and/or workshops to enhance her already broad education in her field. The results of her caring therapy have produced amazing results. Lori Alexander is the best physical therapist ever and I am so grateful to have found her!
