I have used many physical therapists, but Mike from Peak Performance is by far the best I have worked with. I came to him with a very bad ankle sprain that resulted in some torn ligaments. After two months of hard work with Mike I am back on my feet and training for my next marathon. The best thing about Mike is that he is very flexible. He was able to work with my crazy schedule and adjusted his protocol as my recovery sped up. I hope I don’t need physical therapy for a while, but if I do I will definitely return to Peak Performance. I never thought that 2 short months after my injury I would be running again. I wouldn’t be where I am today without Mike!
If you’re in need of physical therapy call Peak Performance! About a year ago I needed physical therapy and other places either didn’t take my health insurance or didn’t have hours to fit my busy student/work schedule. Once I found Peak Performance all of my problems were solved!
Mike is very nice, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic about his work. I saw him for several months for a shoulder injury and we successfully worked through it. He’s very flexible with his time and schedule. I was hesitant and doubtful about physical therapy but Mike has made me a true believer. Go to him, you won’t be sorry!
What to say about working with Mike?? Mike has changed the outlook I have on myself and on my life! He has pushed me to achieve my personal and fitness goals which I never thought were even possible. After years of spinning and body pump, I never changed my body composition and I was starting to get back pain. Since training with Mike for 3 months I have lost 2 pant sizes and I’m in better shape now than I was pre-kids(all 3 of them). I even had to go buys new clothes(yeh!!) I love the fact that I could only do 2 “boy” push ups when I started, and now I am up to 15. Now I am addicted to both working out with his Partner Sessions (I work with 2 friends) and strength routines, and even though he kicks my butt, the results are amazing!!!! I really look forward to being challenged each week. He’s so outgoing, so you never feel awkward working out with him. If you train with him, it’ll change your whole outlook on yourself and on your life!!!
The experience itself has been amazing! Mike really takes the time to figure out what is going on with my body and tailors each treatment to my symptoms and how I’m progressing since my last visit. Mike assigns homework exercises and follows up by emailing me a detailed list of what exercises to do at home and how to do them. Mike also does a great job of explaining to me (in a way I can understand, not using medical jargon) what is causing my symptoms and what is going on with my body. I am 100% happy with the process and results that I’ve experienced at Peak Performance. As someone who hasn’t been able to lift my right arm above my head for about 5 years, the fact that I can do so with ease after only 3 months of working with Mike is pretty awesome. I’m now able to do the basic day-to-day things pain free that I had been missing out on as a result of my injury. I’m so happy I found Mike at Peak Performance and if I ever need PT in the future this is the only place I will go!
I started with Mike after a neck injury and needing a physical therapy program. My personal goal was to increase my overall strength to prevent further injury. From the beginning, Mikes’ confident, calm approach made it enjoyable to really work hard and push myself. In addition to a custom made workout, I feel Mike made it a point to continually educate me on individual exercises and their benefits. I learned a lot from Mike and would definitely recommend him to anyone who wants to improve their personal best.
I completely tore the ulnar collateral ligament in my elbow during a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu tournament. I was pretty bummed out to experience this kind of setback in my training, and wasn’t sure how long I’d be out. My doctor recommended a non-surgical treatment, so I went to see Mike. About 2 weeks post injury, my range of motion was limited and everyday tasks, like putting my hair up and opening doors, were still difficult. Jiu jitsu is a demanding sport and I felt miles away from being able to train again. After a couple weeks of working with Mike I had my full range of motion back and was working on strengthening exercises. I saw improvements every day. At my follow up appointment, my orthopedic surgeon was amazed at how well I was doing. Just a few more weeks later I was training again and my arm felt great! Now, I’m working with Mike on an exercise routine to get even stronger than I was before the injury, and it hasn’t taken long to see results. Mike not only provides excellent services as a physical therapist and a strength coach, but his friendly demeanor makes every appointment enjoyable. He has a way of making every client feel important, and always seems truly invested in his patient’s progress. I’ve never had such a positive experience with a physical therapist, and I couldn’t recommend him more!
