Kendrick is very thorough. Taking time to review all current health issues and past medical history and monitoring your PT progress. He listens to your questions and provide all the answers. He createsba personal plan of care for each patient. Each time I complete a scheduled therapy appointment , I feel less lower back pain and discomfort. The PT exercises that I learned at the PT sessions, help to minimize/ eliminate my lower back pain. My back feels stronger and I am able to gradually resume normal activities of daily living without the lower back pain or taking OTC pain medications.

I have never met anyone in my life like Kendrick. from day one he listened he asked questions he watches. If I'm having a bad day which my bad day refers to my pain level he doesn't try to aggravate it more he will calm it down and ease me into the therapy and I truly appreciate that. If my pain level rises Kendrick will ice before sending me home. Physical therapy is hard but if you knew what I have gone through and the progress that I have made its because of Kendrick whom wouldn't allow m to give up.

In general, he is a very good and pleasant therapist, knowledgeable and was able to answer all of my questions, but for my type of scoliosis he doesn’t have enough tools to help me a lot. But he has been helping me with reducing my pain level and he is doing his job very well. I highly recommend him as a great PT.

My PT plan was tailored to me so well and got me back to my normal workouts. I was surprised at how much care was put in and not given a cookie cutter program just to get me back doing daily activities. I’m back hitting it hard in the gym and have the tools I need to hopefully prevent or quickly treat another flare up.
