For the last three months my Physical Therapist, Linden Daiss provided physical therapy for my reverse total shoulder replacement. Linden provided the appropriate therapy, along with the encouragement and support to regain the functionality of my shoulder. My most sincere appreciation to Linden for my recovery.

Doug T.

My therapist, Linden Daiss, examined me and began a regiment of stretching, home exercises and various manipulations of my neck and shoulder. I went from a pain level of of 9 on a scale of 10 down to a 0 because of her treatment and excellent diagnosis skills. I am very glad and thankful to have found such a caring group, especially my therapist, Dr. Linden Daiss.

Jeffery P.

Through a series of manipulations, exercises, and dry needling, Jonathan addressed the pain from my hip to my toes. His understanding of the pain was not only emotionally validating, he methodically traced the causes and week by week worked with me to increase my strength  and mobility and lessen the pain. Since most of my sessions were during the Covid 19 pandemic, Jonathan and the other therapists, and all the staff, made sure the whole area was kept extremely sanitized and safe.

Reglyn R.

I was having pain in the arches of my feet. My mother told me about Appalachian Physical Therapy. She wanted me to come here so they could assist me with my problem. Dr. Jon helped me and taught me the proper techniques and now I have zero pain. It wasn’t just him that helped me feel better; everyone here played a role in that. When I walked through the door I was greeted with a smiling face. The other therapists also talked with me which made me feel good and helped me pass the time by. I would highly recommend their services to anyone seeking physical therapy.

Javon J.

I have struggled with a “frozen shoulder” for 16 months. I had PT at another location 12 months ago and went about 4 times with no help. That PT place spent about an actual 10 minutes with me and charged $$$.

I went to a seminar and started sessions with Dr. Cole two weeks ago. He spent about 75 minutes with me discussing and evaluating me. I ended up getting some dry needling and found a little relief.

I came home and did my home exercises fairly regularly. I went back yesterday for my second appointment. Dr. Cole spent about an hour with me. He again dry needled another area and then applied pressure to my shoulder, upper arm and forearm.

When I got home I showered and ended up reaching behind my back to secure my bra down. I have realized I reached around fairly easily…so I successfully latched and unlatched my undergarments twice. I haven’t been able to do that in 16 months

Feeling so amazed by more movement in 2 sessions! Praise the Lord!!! I am a believer!

Ashlee K.

Thanks to my treatment at Appalachian Physical Therapy with Ray Metzger, I have gone from severely debilitated to being able to resume almost all of my activities. I can’t sing their praises enough.

Emily W.

I’m so glad that I chose Ray to restore my mobility and strength of my shoulder following surgery to correct a total separation. I’m confident that his personalized program and instructions will keep me moving freely for years to come.

Garrett M.

Moving to our new home took a toll on my shoulders and knee. Jonathan analyzed my needs and has a real gift at pin-pointing the areas needing work. His dry needling technique also helped me increase mobility and decrease pain as well. I truly appreciate all the help I received!

Irene T.

Karen Backall has healed me from extreme neck, back, and knee pain, as well as vertigo and torn muscles, enabling me to avoid surgery and return to full function through her encouragement, demanding yet carefully tailored unique toolbox of treatments. I strongly recommend her and the entire office of professionals for healing from injuries or surgery – their work is absolutely the tops in the profession!

John V.

When I started physical therapy for my knee, it was painful and I had difficulty walking, climbing stairs, etc. Karen gave me exercises to strengthen my knee and used her “magic fingers” to release my pain. My knee is much stronger and less painful and activities of daily living are much easier, thank to Karen.

Mary B.

On two different occasions I came to Teri, barely able to walk. Thanks to her hard work and expertise and incredible care, I was able to climb the Acropolis and explore numerous archeological sites in Greece and Rome. Thanks to my dear Teri, I can now again do all the things I love.

Rosemary C.

Thank you so much Jonathan for helping me avoid surgery on my shoulder. Thank you -thank you- thank you!

Susan G.

I came in feeling really helpless about what would help me, but Teri was so knowledgeable about my situation and made me feel hopeful. Today at discharge I have been symptom free for about 3 to 4 weeks. It has been amazing to gain confidence back in my body again. Grateful for Teri and all she has done and taught me these last few weeks as well as the Appalachian family/ team for making me feel comfortable every time I came in.
