"I have nothing but good things to say about Oliver and the staff at Inspire PT. Olly takes the time to thoroughly evaluate any issues and works to find the root cause - not just treat the symptoms, which is so important in overall and permanent treatment. I have asked numerous questions throughout treatment and he has fielded them with grace and knowledge making sure I fully understand the answers. I have appreciated his time and energy in treatment."
"I have been attending Inspire P.T. with Oliver for several weeks now was introduced via referral from the VA / Tricare system. He has been very helpful and thorough in evaluating and tailoring week by week the needs for my recovery and maintenance. Oliver has fantastic knowledge and experience in methods and techniques that I have seen improve while also reinforce previous PT from others. I have learned plenty of new and useful stuff that is well explained and Oliver is very patient with helping you get to where you need to be when you and your body are ready together."
