I’m so glad I picked SOMA…

I’m so glad I picked SOMA for my physical therapy following an ankle injury. George has been so helpful when it comes to helping me understand my injury, prescribing helpful exercises/stretches and encouraging me during my treatment journey! You can tell both George and Costa really care about everyone they treat. Highly recommend!

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.

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.

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%.

I love 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.
