To our loyal Joint Motion Physical Therapy Customers,
These last 2 weeks have been very emotional for us, COVID-19 has forced us to make extremely tough decisions about how to handle Joint Motion Physical Therapy. We are aware that any decisions that we make have a tremendous impact on our family, our patients, our employees and our community. With that in mind, I have decided to close the office beginning 3/23/2020 until at least 4/5/2020.
I am so incredibly lucky to have the best team on this Earth, and we all have been working hard to help make this very difficult decision, an unfortunate reality. We will be doing our part in helping to "flatten the curve" that will hopefully save the lives of many of our loved ones who are in the most susceptible group to contract severe illness and death. Our company motto is to "DO MORE". Right now, I feel that we are "DOing MORE" by doing nothing at all.
We have spent 14 years in this community since the practice opened in 2006. We take tremendous pride in being able to offer a fun-loving and safe work environment for so many amazing individuals. Never did I think I would be faced with a decision like this. There were lots of fears and lots of sleepless nights. As a practice owner, there will be lots of uncertainty and pain ahead but I have no doubt that our practice, our team, our patients and our community will come out even stronger for it when this is over.
What will we do since school and activities are cancelled? I will choose to focus on the fact that I get to spend some serious quality time with my family these next two weeks, instead of the few hours a day I normally get. Maybe I'll teach them a new life skill, teach them to cook or take them fishing (which hasn't been cancelled yet!). Some of us will support or local businesses or take some online classes to progress our education. Maybe even take some quiet time to read a book!
If you are a current patient- make sure to keep up with your home exercise programs that many of you have received. Please email us at frontoffice@JointMotionPT.com if you need an update and your therapist will review and update if it is necessary. Keep an eye out for updates from us, as we are looking into E-visit options as well.
All we can do is adapt to this the best we can and keep progressing. Thank you all for trusting us with the care of you and your family for all these years. My family, my employees and I truly appreciate it. Please take this time to enjoy and take care of your families. I will keep you posted as this situation progresses.
We are wishing all of our wonderful patients and families safety and strength in the weeks ahead. Be safe. Be smart. But don't be scared. This too shall pass and we will resume our normally busy lives soon.

"I have had 3 major spine surgeries, the last one was June 2019. Prior to the surgery I had to have intensive PT per insurance requirements. I worked with the staff at Joint Motion and they were superbly helpful in managing the PT and advising the insurance company on my status.
After the surgery I went right back to PT with Joint Motion to get the left side of my body and left leg strong again. The staff is extremely professional, courteous and sympathetic. Without them I would not be able to walk straight. I highly recommend them for any PT needed."

"I am a runner and this is the second time I have gone to Joint Motion with knee issues. They did a great job the first time as 6 years (and several thousand miles) elapsed between my first series of visits and my recent visits. You will never find a business that is easier to work with - the staff is cheerful, helpful and flexible. My therapist was John this time and he really knows his stuff! He had me up and on the treadmill within a few visits. Everybody clapped and I felt like a celebrity after my last session.
What I really like the best is the environment - even with a roomful of injured clients, the mood is always happy and upbeat. Lots of laughter, lots of support. Should I injure myself again (and knowing me, I probably will), I would return without hesitation! "

" This is my fourth experience with PT. One time a few years ago at Joint Motion for severe sciatica after being in the hospital for that condition for one week. Joint Motion was fantastic back then as it continues to be now,
Last year I needed additional PT and made the mistake of not returning to Joint Motion. Instead I went to two other places that had been recommended to me instead of following my gut to return to Joint Motion. That turned out to be a big mistake.
The two other PT places could not compare to Joint Motion. The staff at Joint Motion is caring, helpful, supportive, personable AND they're excellent therapists. I cannot say the same thing for the other places I went to. The one place operated like a factory with changing therapists who were quite uncaring. At the second place the therapists were friendly but were quite unimpressive in their therapeutic skills. Most of the time I had to suggest things to try that might be helpful to me and then the therapist would say "yeah, sure that could be helpful." So I had to direct my own therapy. And there was no continuity as the therapists rotated depending on what day of the week I was there.
In contrast Joint Motion is exceptionally good. The physical therapists there are knowledgeable and attentive and are definitely in charge of the therapeutic process always explaining and guiding the next step in treatment. Also there is consistency since you always work with the same therapist each time you have an appointment. I can't say enough good things about Marc Helders, the therapist I've been working with. Plain and simple he's terrific! And he has a great sense of humor -- always a plus in my book!
In addition the facility is clean and the front desk staff is wonderful -- always friendly & helpful.
Kudos to Tristan, the owner, for running such an exceptional Physical Therapy facility.
I highly recommend Joint Motion to anyone who is looking for an excellent place to go to for physical therapy,
I wish I could give this place 10 stars instead of just 5. "

"I would like to thank Triston and his staff for treating me for an arthritic knee. Triston was highly recommended by my rheumatologist and did a great job relieving my knee pain. He was very thorough in the initial interview, making sure he had a full picture of my problem and that he understood my concerns. The office staff is very welcoming and managed to make my appointments convenient to me, During each session, the therapy staff are friendly and have a fun camaraderie amongst each other and the patients! Each session passed quickly and before I knew it, my knee pain subsided. Triston prepared me with at home exercises to allow me to continue my therapy at home and I continue to improve. Thank you to Triston and the entire Joint Motion Therapy staff!

"If you need PT JOINT MOTION is THE PLACE to go! They (Triston, Marc, John, Ibby, Ryan, Lisa & Linda) REALLY care about each patient....if you have a doubt just go in and observe them in action. From the moment you walk through the door you get a sense that they are the real deal.
They know every patient by name, they make it their business to understand what is going on and how they can best help. They listen, learn and act depending on how your body is reacting. Besides all this they are excellent at customer service, following up with doctors, and making a personal connection with everyone.
Really special place here. It's not easy to stay this positive and focused on the best result when you are faced daily with people that are not at their best dealing with pain and discomfort. "
