Over more than fifty years of sports and weight training, I gradually amassed a series of muscle and joint injuries. While most problems eventually resolved themselves, a damaged shoulder got progressively worse. In early 2014, my trainer referred me to Kyle. At that time, it was hard for me to raise my right arm above shoulder height. However, within a matter of months of working with Kyle, I had full range of motion and was able to do pull-ups again.
More recently, a knee injury made it hard for me to walk upstairs. Again, Kyle diagnosed the source of the problem, worked the joints and muscles effectively, and I can now run upstairs easily. Kyle has a marvelous grasp of how the muscles, joints and nerves are interconnected, and can quickly target the problem area – which may not be the point where I am feeling the pain. Equally important, Kyle listens closely to what I say, asks the right questions, and can clearly explain his diagnosis and treatment plan. Plus, he is a fun person to be around. Without hesitation, I would gladly recommend Kyle to anyone.Rob,
I have been seeing Kyle at CIMT for about eight months, and he has helped me tremendously! I had been living with an injury for about two years and, even after seeing many doctors, I still didn't have a clear idea of what was wrong and I had almost given up. Kyle is not only incredibly knowledgeable, but he is very thoughtful and insightful as well. He has gradually helped me to work through several layers of tension and dysfunction, and he has also fixed me up following setbacks--caused by my own mistakes as well as an unfortunate misguided attempt at "typical" physical therapy. I feel incredibly lucky to have found this far more enlightened type of therapy which CIMT provides. I appreciate that Kyle is both realistic and positive, and I feel as though he really cares that I get better. I have recommended him to everyone I know who has any kind of problem like mine.Claudia,
The manual therapy services at CIMT are exceptional. Previously, I have sought treatment at other PT offices and I have had a minimal reduction of my symptoms. As a physical therapist myself, I am well-informed of the available treatments/modalities and I know the importance of having a PT who listens to and addresses all of a person's concerns. Scott, who has become my primary therapist, has fulfilled and exceeded my expectations. Every session, he listens to my complaints and spends the remaining treatment time to alleviate my pain, decrease movement restrictions, and reestablish appropriate movement patterns. The additional manual training and certification that Scott has received from the Institute of Physical Art elevates his skills set into an elite group of clinicians. This training coupled with his professionalism and attention to detail makes him exceptional in providing patient care. For me, it means achieving huge improvements with longstanding issues in my mobility that has greatly improved the quality of my life.Michelle,
It is a pleasure to recommend Dr. Scott Juzwak. I had appointments with him to prepare for hip replacement surgery and continued with him for outpatient appointments afterward. I am currently getting treatments for plantar fasciitis.
I consistently find him to be an attentive and thorough listener. He is extraordinarily observant and versatile with ways to have me do exercises at home to accommodate my circumstances. He is highly skilled at encouraging me and moving me along progressions of exercises with clear and concise instructions that I can grasp quickly. He has a positive and upbeat manner.
I fully credit him with my ability to do movements and activities now that are beyond what I could imagine. For example, I can hike roots ’n rocks trails and walk long distances around the city. Most of all, I look forward to even better health and fitness levels as a result of his expertise, deep caring for me as a patient, and personalized treatment.Beth,
My family has been greatly helped by the manual therapy provided by Karen Johnson. From my teenage son’s need to improve his athletic performance and respond to field injuries, to my 85 year old father’s shifting posture and varying pains. Karen’s healing hands have provided recovery for me from car accidents, surgery, and the constant stresses on my back and hips. We have come to understand her care as a vital part of our family’s well being. Her caring professional manner and her remarkable skill seem almost magical in isolating the source of problems and making immediate progress. We have all been able to do more and do it better with Karen’s service and remain grateful for her warmth and expertise.Jane ,
Over the past ten years or so I’ve been going to Karen for everything from dislocated fingers to sprains to crinks in my neck and back and in that time she’s always taken care of whatever issue I’ve had. Her amazing knowledge of how every bone, muscle, and tendon in the body is connected allows her to quickly focus in on the source of the problem, which in turn enables her not only to relieve the pain but more importantly to correct the issue such that it never returns. I’ve lost track of how many people I’ve referred to her—I’ve not only recommended her to countless people through my various softball leagues but also to just about my entire office. After every referral I hear the same thing, that Karen is a wonderfully warm person with a tremendous gift to heal people. Perhaps the best compliment I heard was from a colleague of mine who said “I wish I had something wrong with me just so I could go back to see Karen!”Bill,
