"This is the MOST amazing place with expert training in manual physical therapy which surpasses any of my prior experiences with physical therapy. I knew from the first day that I went to therapy that I was in the right place. After having microfracture surgery to grow new cartilage eight years ago, I have not been able to extend my knee properly even after 9 months of physical therapy. After getting an infection in my leg in September of 2017 after Hurricane Harvey, I had widespread swelling requiring having the knee drained multiple times. For over three months, I lost all my ability to use my knee and to walk. The MRI revealed I have very little cartilage left. I went through PRP stem cell injections with Dr. Adam Weglein to address the residual swelling as well as to regrow new cartilage. He recommended Atkinson Physical Therapy. Having Teresa Atkinson's expertise has been an indescribable blessing for me. 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."
