ActiveCare Physical Therapy Patient Testimonials

We are happy to see that our patient (and friend) Roz is doing great after two knee replacements. Roz had a lot of wonderful things to say on Facebook about the physical therapy she received from our Dr. Karena Wu. Check out her testimonial:

roz_Active_Care_PT_PatientThank you for the great P.T. that I received pre- and post-op for my total knee replacements on both knees! You contributed mightily to my successful rehab. It was quick and (almost) painless! I am back to 100% – walking an average of 5 miles and climbing 10-20 flights every day. I made a quality of life decision to have the surgeries – and my quality of life couldn’t be better! I’ve been to two other places for P.T. in the past; yours is by far the best and you are the best therapist ever! You are very smart, knowledgeable, dedicated and run a terrific practice. Your facility is open, sunny, clean and cheerful. I never minded coming for therapy. Your staff is well-trained and well-directed. – Roz P.

And as a follow-up, Roz also had this incredible news to share:

Normally I wouldn’t show (let alone share) a photo of me in a bathing suit with anybody; however, since I was able to get up and down BY MYSELF from this low-in-the-sand beach chair is on point. After two knee replacements and your P.T., I walk several miles a day on any surface and climb up and down stairs (8-20 flights/day) with no pain.
