What our clients say about us
“I recently finished a 7-month physical therapy treatment with another therapist. Following that treatment, I still had serious pain in my shoulder. I visited David, and after 2 hours of a thorough body assessment, he immediately found a serious issue that my previous physical therapist had missed (weak upper trap muscles). His recommended exercises have relieved my pain, and strengthened my muscles to prevent continued pain.”
“I began physical therapy for my knee with Dr. David Middaugh & have been pleased with his care & thoroughness, and that it immediately helped relieve some pain.
