I injured my hamstring early in the track season and was told I’d be out for the rest of the season and would need surgery. I went to In Touch Physical Therapy and was competing again in just over a month! I was amazed at how knowledgeable the physical therapists were and how much the ARP machine helped. I was so happy to be able to compete in the finals – I wouldn’t have been able to do it without In Touch Physical Therapy. I recommend In Touch to any athlete that is experiencing pain; they can get you back in the game.
