Trusted health every step of the way

The therapy has been amazing…

I came to SOMA for a meniscus tear. The therapy has been amazing and I feel better after just a few weeks. I highly recommend SOMA to anyone.

This really helped set my recovery to a great start…

ACL full recovery- I started with George a month before my ACL surgery and I was able to reach full range of motion right before surgery as suggested by my surgeon. This really helped set my recovery to a great start. ACL recovery is painful in the beginning but working along George made it easy to understand the different stages I was in and I saw improvement through every session. I had some set backs along the way like tendinitis but that was nothing George couldn’t help me get through. I’m now fully recovered and so thankful for George’s help.

I’m happy to say I’m finally back to 100%…

The entire team here is incredibly helpful, friendly, thoughtful, and most importantly committed to your recovery. I came in to treat a shoulder injury I had been dealing with for a year that had been difficult to diagnose and which had not responded well to prior treatment. George worked with me to continuously adopt my treatment plan based on my stubborn shoulder with the ultimate goal of getting me back to all physical activities like sports and the gym I’ve been trying and failing to get back to at full strength. With George’s treatment and instruction I’m happy to say I’m finally back to 100%.

This place was really incredible…

This place was really incredible. Quiet, clean and well thought out office. The physical therapists were so attentive to your needs and were truly there to find whatever issue you had and work through it. I had only had the pleasure of a few physical therapy sessions because my issues were solved quickly but in the time that I did spend there it was used wisely. Not only were the therapists down to earth and nice but they didn’t waste a moments time trying to fix my issue. I hope my issue never comes back but if it does I know there is a place I can definitely go to. Thanks

I love Soma…

I love Soma. It’s so pleasant. Clean, Clean, Clean. The work they are doing on my left leg and side is phenomenal. I find it fun even through the pain of working out.

Highly recommended Soma…

Highly Recommend Soma! I have been working with George to help recover from an IT band injury and his help has been life saving. George is a true professional and is extremely knowledgeable. He really takes the time to explain and educate his patients to ensure a smooth path to recovery. Absolutely love this place and have already referred several friends.

Everybody there is warm and welcoming and extremely compassionate…

I was so lucky to find SOMA PT/OT after a terrible accident to my hand. Everybody there is warm and welcoming and extremely compassionate. The vibe in the whole place is relaxed yet dedicated to helping each individual and their needs. Specifically, my occupational therapist, Costa, has a natural ability to focus in and address the unique problem that requires help in the moment. I know I progressed for the better because of his expertise and desire to be beneficial. The second you walk in and meet Monina (a doll!) at the front desk, you know you’re in the best hands

Extremely professional and knowledgeable…

Costa was extremely professional and knowledgeable with my diagnosis. I had a great time working with him and he made sure I attained the goals we set up together. It was easy to set up an appointment, which they also accommodated in short notice. The office has a positive atmosphere and I look forward to working with him again.
