"We were recommended to Teresa by a family friend for my moms acute back and hip pain. Teresa took time during the initial visit to listen intently to the symptoms and came up with a well designed plan to help my mother. She explained the causative issue and the effects well. Her technical, medical and bed side manner is top notch. Culturally sensitive and comes directly to the core issue without wasting time. The healing and therapeutic sessions are in a family friendly and well lit space with helpful assistants always guiding, coaching and measuring progress while being sensitive to age and physical limitations. The front and back office staff are courteous and efficient. This clinic and clinicians are a blessing to Houston."
"My doctor had me switch physical therapists to Teresa Atkinson to treat my intense neck and back pain caused by bulging disks. Teresa and her staff were very thorough in reviewing my MRI and X-rays to properly treat my pain. After just a few sessions I had dramatic reduction in neck and back pain. River Oaks PT treats me and their patients like family and this is not a typical corporate run PT operation. The staff cares about my specific needs and uses a mix of physical therapy exercises, massage, electrical stimulation, ultrasound, and other methods to treat my pain. They are very accommodating and even taped my back to further reduce my pain, which allowed me to take a much needed family vacation. I highly recommend Teresa and River Oaks Physical Therapy to anyone with back and neck pain."
"I've had years of various treatments and physical therapy for lower back issues, with little progress. Before I had a second back surgery I decided to take my friend's advice and try them out. Teresa and her staff have made huge progress in just a few visits!!! Its a total body and mind experience. They not only made me feel 100% better but explained what was happening, and gave me meaningful advice and tools to avoid having the symptoms (pain) come back. Teresa has decades of experience but is still on the cutting edge of non-surgical solutions. Sam is the most knowledgeable and conscientious massage therapist I have ever experienced. He goes right to the problem and explains the mechanics of why/how things happen. It's changed my life and I can't thank them enough!"
"I discovered via MRI that 2 bulging discs in my neck were the source of intense back pain for the past 4 years. After 6 visits with Teresa and her team, my pain is almost completely gone. I highly recommend Teresa for anyone needing physical therapy of any kind. This is truly a special place."
"“I was recommended to see Teresa by my physician mom, who was recommended to Teresa by her physician friends when she injured her neck. She told me I've got to see Teresa because she was a godsend for her. I wasn't expecting much because I'd seen many doctors and physical therapists before, for chronic jaw problems of 8 years and nothing had been sustainably helpful. Now, I've been seeing Teresa and her staff for 3 years for problems ranging from my jaw to back to even my knee. With all the amazing work they do, I probably wouldn't still be going if I didn't get in so many accidents and if, most importantly, they didn't treat me so well. Every time I leave her office I feel like a new person - totally relaxed, free of pain and ready to face any challenge and give it a wink. They may have me coming for the rest of my life. Each of them are the best of the best at what they do. I highly recommend this place over and over again!!!”"
"Teresa has been treating me for the past couple months for a frozen shoulder. This has been the most painful ailment I have ever encountered and Teresa is taking wonderful care of me. Her treatments are making a huge difference in my range of motion and comfort level. Her staff are kind, knowledgeable, and very helpful. I am so glad I was referred to her for care!"
"Teresa has been able to restore mobility in my back and her therapy always reduces my pain level.
Her team members, and especially Sam, are dedicated, professional and effective. I credit Teresa
with helping me avoid back surgery for several years. She is a magician when it comes to back care."
"I have been seeing Teresa for over 15 years! She has been a fantastic solution for someone who has experienced chronic back pain for so many years. Each treatment is personally tailored to treat the problem area and she has been very successful in aiding me with my chronic condition. She and her staff are highly professional and effective. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!"
"She is a wealth of knowledge and knew exactly how to address my flexion and extension difficulties which no one has ever been able to do. I am walking again, and I continue to make the progress that I have desperately wanted. The massage therapist, Sam, is outstanding and has incredible knowledge. His techniques are so unique and helpful in relieving pain. Sophie, and the other rehab specialists, are so knowledgeable and caring. They always take time to address the problems that you are having. The office staff are friendly and efficient and even give you a text to remind you of your appointment. This practice makes you feel more like life long friends. I appreciate them more than I will ever be able to express."
