When I first began I had a lot of trouble running long distances and squatting due to pain in my knee. After about a month of PT and coming in 2 times a week, I am back to full activities. Thank you to all the drs and staff for helping me to a full recovery and making me feel at home!
Before Pt I had bad elbow pain, which prevented me from playing badminton. Playing badminton has been the only activity that has kept sane during this work from home situation. In the 6 weeks of PT I see great improvement to the point where I do not have any pain with playing badminton. This is just awesome and I would like to thank all the doctors here at FYZICAL who made this possible.
My knees began to hurt and my doctor suggested Physical therapy. I
was also concerned about my balance.
Within a few visits I was able to understand what I could do for
myself to end my pain. I have continued
my exercises at home and noticed maximum benefits! I can also notice differences when I don’t do
I love Fyzical!
When I came in after a minor car accident, I was so uncomfortable.
I couldn’t get a good night’s sleep and my life felt upside down. With the help of everyone at Fyzical, I feel
better than ever!
Thank you for taking the time and putting in the effort to bring me
back to life!
I looked forward to coming twice a week, and once a week at the end
of my treatment. The women who helped me were very friendly and patient. They showed me how to do all of the exercises
and had me demonstrate them before I left.
I could tell my balance was improving and I now feel much more
confident with my walking! I have recommended Fyzical to many friends when they
have complimented me on my progress and I am grateful for the experience!
When climbing the stairs became a dreaded part of each day, I knew
I needed medical guidance. I consider
choosing Fyzical and the amazing staff here the best choice I have made for my
torn meniscus! The patient, caring, and
knowledgeable professionals have been tremendous! From the beginning, as I struggled to even
bend my knee, to now bending and walking pain free!
I have been watched over and guided by great people. I enjoy
sharing my progress story with friends and singing the praises of Fyzical!
I hurt my ankle while I was doing gymnastics and I wanted to become
stronger so I wouldn’t re-injure it in the future. So, I came to Fyzical for PT. Now I am able to do a lot of things without
any pain! My ankle has become a lot less swollen and a lot stronger.
I am very happy!!
Following an injury, I developed shooting pain in my ankle and the
back of my leg. I had previously come to
Fyzical therapy center following two knee replacements – so I knew exactly
where to come for help! Prior to PT I
wasn’t able to stand or walk without pain.
The therapists at Fyzical are knowledgeable and patient. They not
only provided me with graduated exercise routines to strengthen my foot, but
also gave me advice and exercises to build my core. I know this will all assist
me greatly in maintaining my strength and preventing repeat injuries!
My experience here at Fyzical has been very positive. After surgery
for a hip replacement on 12/12/2019, I had three weeks of PT at home before
starting PT here at Fyzical. When I
began here, I was using 2 crutches – then 1 crutch – then a crane and now am
I have enjoyed working
with each of the therapists and have appreciated all the help during my
Thank you to all!
One again I am fixed by the Physical Therapists at Fyzical. I am a frequent flyer here – since 2010. I have come for my back, arms, knees, and now
my hips and sciatica. It is amazing what
a little physical therapy does. I hope I
don’t have to come back but I’m happy to know I can when I need to!
I was referred to PT for severe vertigo that had lasted a solid
month. Dr. Rachel did my assessment and initial visit. I improved slowly and it was hard work to get
through the vertigo that PT induced – but it was worth it. On my final visit I saw my buddy Dr. Cheryl and was told that the vertigo was ALL GONE!
If I ever have vertigo again, I won’t hesitate to come and see my friends @
Fyzical, because it’s worth it to be able to stand up without the room spinning
I had an excellent experience here at Fyzical Therapy. Five stars
across the board! All of the PT’s and
staff are kind, caring, and very knowledgeable.
After going to Physical Therapy for several months I was able to get
back to running again! Can’t thank you ENOUGH Dr. Rachel!
I originally came to Fyzical for a piriformis issue. My hamstrings were also very tight! All of the therapists I worked with were
great and helped me resolve the piriformis issue and loosen my hamstrings. The tightness also caused some issues with my
knees which I got physical therapy – I highly recommend Fyzical!
When my surgeon prescribed physical therapy for my shoulder, I was
eager to return to Fyzical because they had been so helpful with a previous
ankle issue. Over a series of visits –
working with many of the staff, primarily Dr. Alicia, I have experienced
greater flexibility and range, as well as A LOT less pain. This is a well-organized and well managed
practice. The work they do is critically
important to the healing process. They are thoughtful, analytical, and
concerned with teaching their clients as well as treating them.
Their approach is varied and imaginative – each session gave me
something new and reinforced past gains I had made. Dr. Cheryl, Dr. Rachel, and Dr. Alicia are
Many thanks for the difference you make!
I had shoulder surgery to repair damage. After, I was in constant
pain and could barely move! The people at Fyzical got me on a program of
strength stretching and now, 3 months later, the pain is gone and thanks to a
great routine – my range of motion is normal and I’m getting stronger!
I really can’t say enough about the people here and the fantastic
work they do. To say the staff is
friendly and knowledgeable is an understatement for sure! Thank you all for everything.
As an exercise person and previous left hip surgical recipient – I
was concerned when pain began to wrap itself around my right hip. Doctor Shah indicated “not to worry and the
to seek treatment…. Inflammation is treatable!”
Happy to hear no more surgery.
My treatment here, my third series of visits, makes me continuously
smile! The small intimate movements alone with the wonderful larger exercises
have made the pain almost completely disappear.
I am back to the gym, in classes, and feeling like my old (younger!)
Care at Fyzical is thorough, careful, knowledgeable, &
perfectly explained. Cheryl & her staff are professional & fun &
have helped me back to a normal active life.
I’ve been coming to Fyzical for many years and the doctors are
always able to get me back to my normal routines. This time around I had a partially torn bicep
tendon. Dr. Alicia worked closely with
me to build my strength to the point where I’m able to go back to my regular
workouts! The staff are very helpful and
patient with everyone.
I’ve still got some more surgeries to go to repair old sports
injuries, and I know I’ll be back to work with the staff again!
I’m so grateful for the team at Fyzical! Before starting PT I had
chronic shoulder pain and struggled with just about everything. Sometimes my pain was so bad that I couldn’t
even sleep at night! When I came to
Fyzical, I had just had surgery and was unable to move my arm. I was very nervous about my road to recovery.
Dr. Alicia put my mind to ease during my very first visit.
The entire staff here is warm, welcoming, and knowledgeable. I knew early on that I was in good hands! During my time in PT I’ve made so much
progress and I’m now getting back to my normal life and routine. I want to thank the Fyzical team for their
thoroughness, patience, and guidance throughout my recovery – it’s great to be
pain free again!
I hurt my shoulder blade muscle at work which in turn, pinched the
nerves and caused great pain. After
working through the workman’s compensation system, I was able to get an
appointment with Fyzical Therapy and Balance Centers! Best choice I made and have been extremely
happy with the results.
Not only is my shoulder stronger and pain free, but my core and
back muscles are better than ever! No
matter whom I’ve worked with, everyone is friendly and helpful with a strong
focus on getting you better!
Following an injury in my right shoulder I came to Fyzical unable
to lift my right hand above the shoulder level.
I was unable to do the things I adore like playing basketball and other
sports. I met with the wonderful staff
here who took my step by step in helping me recover my ability o move. Following the exercises given to me by the
team I got strength back in my shoulder and started to feel strong enough to
get back to the things I love! I am able
to play basketball again, lift my hands above my head, and more!
THANK YOU FYZICAL TEAM!!
I recently began jogging to help maintain and improve my fitness
into middle age. After a couple of
months, one of my calves let me know that it didn’t approve of this plan! Cheryl, Rachel, Alicia, and all of the staff
here were exceptionally friendly & helpful in showing me the stretches and
exercises to do in order to get back to running. The deep-tissue massages were a great help
Thank you Fyzical!
I injured myself in dance by doing a
complex move that hurt my knee. After
injuring it, I couldn’t really move it and whenever I tried to it was really
painful! When I came to physical therapy
I didn’t really know if it would work but, thankfully, it got better with the
help of the therapists here!
I came to physical therapy with the goal of improving my balance
and movement – wanting to experience both without the fear of falling. Sessions were totally user-friendly and
pleasant with take home exercises to help me reach my goals! Assessments were positive and encouraging.
Both my balance and movement have improved! I still have a way to go, but I
leave with exercises and a person-trainer to follow up with and help monitor my
I tore my meniscus back in September and came to Fyzical in October
2018. The physical therapy helped but,
as 2019 rolled by, certain activities would aggravate it and I decided to get
surgery. I came back to Fyzical after to
When I started coming back, I was using crutches but after 3 weeks
I could walk without assistance! It’s important to keep up with exercises at
home. I can now walk with very little
problems or pain – unless I make sharp or abrupt turns!
Before physical therapy my hip hurt all the time. When I was active it got worse! Through PT I learned how to stretch and
strengthen my core, hamstrings, hip, lower back, glutes, etc. This has not only eased the hip pain, but
helped me feel stronger and become more active.
The practitioners were all smart, kind, friendly, and professional!
It was a pleasure to receive these healing services from such a fine group of
women and at a woman owned business!
When I started I had problems with walking without a cane, I
improved my balance without a cane in my house.
My balance has improved and I only use the cane when walking
outside. I hope to be able to walk
without a cane in the next couple of weeks.
I had trouble getting up from the couch and now I can do it without
any trouble at all! I need to continue to do my exercises if I want to continue
to improve. I will be in Florida the
next 3 months and I will be walking on a daily basis to continue my progress.
It can be very frustrating to wake up and not have your arm perform
the way it is supposed to. Medical work
up showed that I had a frozen shoulder.
Physical therapy was ordered. The physical therapists are knowledgeable,
professional, and caring. Through
diligent therapy I am now able to use my arm without any pain! Although I have a long way to go to get back
to “normal” I have a good base to get me started
I can’t thank these professionals enough!
My experience here at Fyzical was great. Every time I came to PT I
could feel my collarbone getting better. At first everything we were doing was
a little hard and now everything is much easier and I am also back to playing
hockey – finally!
Thanks, Fyzical for a great time and I highly think people should
come here in the future!
I want to start by saying thank you to Fyzical and a few of their
wonderful physical therapists like Dr. Rachel and Dr. Alicia! I started off in so much pain and could
barely walk. I had knee surgery and just got my ACL and meniscus repaired in
August 2019. I remember having a peg leg
but with the help of Fyzical I was able to get my knee better much sooner than I
thought possible! I can do squats again and my knee has hardly had any
pain. I can also run again at full
speed, with no pain! I couldn’t be any
happier with my overall results.
Thank you again!
Before PT, I had trouble running, walking, and doing daily
activities. It became a daily
problem. With PT, I now am able to do
everything I couldn’t before! I have barely
any pain now, the therapists at Fyzical all helped me so much. They always gave me helpful exercises and
advice. If it wasn’t for Fyzical, I
couldn’t be able to do all of the hobbies that I love.
I came to Fyzical with TMJ.
My jaw had been hurting me for over 6 months when I ate anything or even
yawned! I’m a chef and a tired mom – so
these were things that are hard to avoid!
With 6 weeks of sessions and exercises, my jaw function has improved
tremendously! Little to no pain and I can enjoy my favorite activity again –
Grateful for all of the wonderful therapists that I worked with
during my time here. Your compassion and
expertise made this a great experience.
I came to Fyzical Therapy & Balance Centers for shoulder pain.
I was determined that it came from a torn rotary cuff, so I returned following
my surgery for further PT. It was
extremely helpful and now my shoulder is 100% healed!
Every time I came for therapy it was helpful and the therapists
were kind and patient. I’ve seen all of
the therapists in the Natick office and have been very happy with everyone!
I’ve since returned with hip pain due to my arthritis. The exercises have greatly helped with
strengthening my hips and making my walking less painful. It gives me hope and encourages me that I can
“manage” my arthritis.
All treatments here are excellent!
I came to Fyzical for arthritis in my left shoulder. I had pain when reaching behind and above my
body, Fortunately, the therapists here have the same team goal to get you back
to functional “normal” again!
They guide you through a series o exercises that focus on your
issue. Before you realize it, you are
experiencing more range of motion, less pain, and gaining strength.
It is then that you realize how much of those things you had
lost! Everyone here will get you
back to where you were before the pain.
They are all excellent at what they do from the front desk to the
When I first came here, I had a very weak right leg – likely due to
a fall while walking the dog. Truth be
told, the left wasn’t that great either due to age.
Now I feel 100% - thanks to the excellent physical
therapists here at Fyzical! I’ll definitely
come back (if I have to) and recommend it to everyone.
I can’t express my gratitude enough for Dr. Cheryl and her team!
I have had to deal with arthritis and joint issues my entire life –
13 surgeries on multiple body parts! Every time the team at Fyzical has gotten
me back to my normal life in record time – including getting me back to my
favorite thing, wearing heels!
I know I have more surgeries in my future, but knowing that I have
Cheryl and the team (including Slinky!) to get me through – makes all of the
I came into Fyzical with two problems: one being light-headedness
and the other being vertigo. The vertigo
was re-created here on the first visit.
The light headedness went away without my awareness of it! I am sure
it’s improvement was due to the therapy I received here from the capable
I finished today without either of the two symptoms!
My most difficult task (before therapy here) was to reach up while
on a step ladder to change a smoke detector in my house. I feel I can do this now without symptoms of
dizziness, or fear of losing my balance.
I do hold onto the railings of the ladder, but I feel much more
I have had to use the services of Fyzical several times since 2015
due to a fusion in my lower back. At the
end of every 6 weeks or so, the pain I was experiencing was greatly reduced. I
learned valuable life-long exercises that I use to continue strengthening my
core and relieve pain!
There were times the pain was so excruciating that I almost lost
all hope of ever being pain free again. The dedication of the MD’s working with
me helped me be more educated about what I can do to relieve pain through
exercises every day.
I would (and have) highly recommended everyone I know, requiring
Physical Therapy, to employ the services at Fyzical!
I was having shoulder pain that made it really cumbersome to get
through my day, and it wasn’t going away.
My PCP referred me to Fyzical.
Once I came, not only did the team figure out what was wrong with
my left shoulder, they also helped me deal with intermittent issues that
cropped up on my right side and lower back.
Ultimately, the team helped me learn about lifestyle changes that will
keep my pain-free (or at least experience it less) in the long run.
It was really awesome working with everyone here, and I sincerely
appreciate all of the help!
I’ve always had ankle problems, and have had trouble playing
football in the fall without hurting them more.
This season I had fractured my right ankle and have to be out of
sports for over a month! Going to
physical therapy helped my get back to playing at my best ability and not
having to worry about rolling my ankles all over again.
I’ve been with Fyzical since July of 2019 for two bad ankles and
plantar fasciitis. Before starting PT, I
suffered from ankle and foot pain and had difficulty sleeping, walking, driving,
and performing daily activities without pain.
The therapists here are very experienced, pleasant, and care about
you and your specific needs, treatment plan, and progress.
With the effective treatments and exercises, I am now able to sleep
at night without pain! I am able to walk
further, and am slowly getting back to my daily activities.
Thank you to all of the staff at Fyzical! I’m going to miss you
I came here with a tight back and hamstrings, and not being able to
sit for long periods in a chair. The
physical therapists here really helped me strengthen my core and back muscles s
that I don’t get tight anymore.
Thank you very much for the detailed instructions on stretches to
do and all the great suggestions!
I came in for
dizziness and a sprained ankle. The dizziness was resolved after just the first
visit! My ankle is now much stronger and pain free.
I have been here before for visits and other issues, and I am
always glad to come back because of the professional and kind care I receive.
Before I came here, if I dropped something I would just leave it
where it was – can you picture objects scattered all over the house?! This
seems like a small thing but think how often in a a day you need to bend over!
I am now able to bend and move in many other ways without pain! The
frequency, duration, and intensity of pain has greatly decreased – I am SO MUCH
better! I cannot describe my experience
here without saying an enormous thank you to all of the fabulous physical
therapists here. They are kind, supportive
and really very smart!
I arrived with acute lower back pain and spasms, especially when
bending or twisting. Over several weeks,
my spasms disappeared and the pain lessened greatly. I can now resume my regular activities!
The Fyzical team has provided me the tools to continue
strengthening and improving on my own.
Thanks to all for the friendly, accurate, and timely advice and
I came into
FYZICAL with an injured achilles tendon. I could barely walk. After a few weeks
I was active again, upon completion my ankle was better than before my injury.
Dr. Alicia, Dr. Cheryl and Dr. Rachel all helped solve the injury as a team. I
strongly recommend the BodyQ which has helped fix chronic injuries I have had
for years and thought were unsolvable. I really enjoyed this experience and
highly recommend. Thanks!

I had sudden onset of pain associated with arthritis in my left
hip, causing me to stop playing golf. While I still have some pain, it is
significantly reduced and I am more in control over my body!
I have begun to play golf again, poorly, but with very little pain.
My experience at Fyzical has been very positive! My lower back pain
has improved and I seem to have tightened my core. My stability has gotten better and sleeping
has improved as well! My range of motion has gone up and my problem area is no
longer a problem.
The staff was excellent and great at addressing the specific
Dear Fyzical Theapists,
What an excellent PT experience I had!
All of my therapists were so professional and attentive to all of
my therapy needs. My knee range of
motion, strength, and mobility has improved greatly - Thanks to the diligence
and education of my therapists.
I shall work hard to continue with the guidance photos to stay
fit. Thank you, Dr. Cheryl, Dr. Alicia,
Dr. Rachel, and Allison!
Now I can climb stairs without pain!
The doctors and staff were wonderful to work with throughout my
recovery from a multi-level back fusion. My recovery time exceeded my
expectations! I had no idea that I would feel this great so soon after the
My quality of life has returned to where it was pre-surgery thanks
to the exercises and encouragement of everyone at Fyzical!
I came in for TMJ issues, causing jaw pain and clenching problems.
Since I started coming, my previously frequent headaches have gotten so much
less frequent! They went from multiple
times a month, sometimes on and off for days, to maybe once a month! I find myself clenching way less frequently,
that my facial muscles have gone back to normal an I am able to say words
All of the women who I’ve seen each time have been wonderful! They
all are super helpful at explaining exercises, and even giving me quick
recommendations for other issues I’ve mentioned in passing.
I’m very happy I decided to try PT for my issues, finally! It was definitely worth it.
When I first came here, I was unable to stop myself from falling
sideways or walk without a cane.
I can honestly say that I was helped tremendously and can now walk
without falling and my balance is improving back to the way it used to be!
Many thanks to everyone here who made it possible to be like I used
Four months ago, the knee cap on my left knee decided to go west –
off the joint while climbing stairs!
Started with a leg brace and crutches. Thanks to Dr. Cheryl and Dr. Alicia – I am on
the mend! Even doing stairs like a “Big Girl!”
These workers know their stuff and are kind and compassionate. The office staff are great – friendly and
attentive to insurance issues.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
