What Clients Say

"Having run more than a dozen marathons and having seen many PTs, sports med MDs, and chiropractors, I truly believe I’ve found the “runner whisperer.” Laura takes a holistic, long-term approach to whatever problem I have, and yet I’m always on my way to recovery as soon as I leave her office. After my last visit, I was back to running in just a few days! That’s another thing about Inspire PT: you leave feeling optimistic that you’ll get back on the road and with the knowledge to make it happen. I send all my friends to Laura. Like them, I’m not sure what I would do without Inspire Physical Therapy." - T.P.
