I started therapy after knee replacement surgery on 10/25. I just finished today 12/30. I have full range of motion and can walk and do many things I couldn't do prior to surgery. I want to thank Mick and Ali at the Perry Hall location. They pushed me but were very respectful of my pain if they pushed too hard. My experience has been life changing. Thank you again...Active Life truly changed my life! I would recommend them highly. And I can't forget the entire team, the front desk and all the assistants who were all so friendly.

I have been dealing with pain in the back of my knee since last June after not warming up properly and attempting to run uphill. After starting physical therapy at Active Life a few months ago, I am happy to report that I am able to run without any pain! Josh was super helpful during my recovery and when something didn't work in my plan of care, he made sure to adjust it appropriately. I would highly recommend Active Life PT to anyone!

Cannot say enough good things about Jessica. I was in for vestibular therapy and she knows her stuff! I would not hesitate to see her for orthopedic needs as she is an expert there. A great cross of PUSH and empathy. She is the best therapist I have ever seen. Very high recommend.

I had a great PT experience at Active Life Physical Therapy, Lutherville! Everyone was entirely professional, very nice too. I had terrific and interesting PT with John, from whom I learned a lot, who loves being a PT, and who is an accessible and cool person. The vertigo I came in with is now greatly reduced. Big THANKS to John and Active Life Physical Therapy, Lutherville!!

I recently completed rehab for knee replacement surgery at Active Life Jacksonville and found everyone on staff to be exceedingly helpful and professional. In particular my therapist, Christina Penny, guided me through a three month rehab with skill, wide ranging knowledge, experience and a great attitude. I felt totally comfortable with every decision she made at every point in the rehab. Recovery from surgery is difficult enough but Christina and the folks at Active Life Jacksonville utilized a full team approach with total recovery the only acceptable outcome.

My experience at the Perry Hall location for Active Life Physical Therapy has been great all around! I was dealing with a lot of pain on my lower back including acute nerve pain radiating all over my body. I saw Joseph Palmer and very quickly the issue was resolved. He patiently listened to me and thoroughly investigated and worked on the problem. He taught me a series of exercises that I can tell align everything perfectly so that I can continue to enjoy my active life. I very much looked forward to my therapy sessions at the Perry Hall location because all the staff members are professional, kind and friendly — the energy is always upbeat and everyone seems happy to work there. Lastly, the facilities are comfortable and very well equipped.

Jess, Emily and Josh were amazing in helping me to go from a total knee replacement to hiking again in less than 10 weeks. They supported me every step of the way. And everyone in the office, from the folks up front to the aides, were all friendly and delightful people. I recommend them without hesitation.

Christina Penny is an OUTSTANDING physical therapist. On multiple occasions, she has help me work through various injuries coming from sports or work. There is a genuine care for her patients and a well-considered plan in getting them back onto the road to recovery. Her knowledge in the science of therapy is second to none. Going elsewhere would be doing yourself a great disservice.

Great staff and physical therapy program. Everything was tailored made to make my rehab comfortable and successful. I had used a different PT company before Active Life and the difference was astounding. Active Life did a great job and I'm very satisfied with everyone there. A ++++

After years of pain in both legs, Jim Hale, 53, ultimately decided to take his doctors advice and have total knee replacements on both knees. He was very apprehensive about having surgery, but was pleasantly surprised that post surgery he experienced very little pain. He attributed that, in part, to PT sessions at Active Life and Sports Physical Therapy prior to surgery. He was up on his feet with a walker beginning in-hospital therapy the very next day. He quickly progressed to a cane. He started outpatient physical therapy immediately following discharge from Sinai Hospital. He was amazed how fast his progression and outcome from physical therapy were.

Now, five months post surgery, he is exercising regularly and bowling pain free. He has also seen overall fitness gains which he has attributed to both the physical therapy and the post-care individualized fitness program that was designed for him as a gym member of the Active Life and Sports Fitness Center.

His original goal was to participate in the national Bowling Tournament in Reno, Nevada this June. He stated he feels 'as ready as he could ever be.' He attested to the fact he would have never reached his high levels of success without the staff of Active Life and Sports. Here at Active Life and Sports we are grateful for the opportunity to have assisted Jim and we wish him success throughout all his future endeavors.

 


 

James "Binky" Jones is an amazing man and athlete. He is a husband, father of two children ages 11 and 7, and works full-time as a vocational teacher for disadvantaged youth. And, at the age of 37 Jones is competing at the professional level in the sport of Mixed Martial Arts.

This is especially significant because his career was almost cut short by a neck injury in 2006. James lamented that "the pain was so severe that I thought I would never fight again". He had been unable to do any Jui Jitsu or Boxing moves without pain in his neck. He was even having difficulty sleeping at night. Jones had been dealing with this problem for almost a year and had been to a number of practitioners prior to coming to Active Life and Sports.

After several weeks of manual therapy and exercise, he was able to return to training and finally competition. In fact, Jones succeeded in becoming the Ring of Combat Lightweight Champion in 2007. He recently signed a professional contract for two additional fights. At Active Life and Sports we wish Jim the best in his career and in life. We are grateful for the opportunity to have made a significant contribution.

 


 

When we think of retirement activities we often think of leisurely days filled with chasing a golf ball, playing cards and shuffleboard or bachi. But, those kind of activities just don't cut it for Jim Young. At the age of 71 Jim continues to operate his business, "Herche's-Young Interiors Work Room" which creates custom draperies, upholstery and other related products. For fun he plays on "Hammels" a nationally competitive softball team in the 70-75 year old division. Hammels is a tournament team in the Triple A Senior Softball League.

Jim's softball career almost came to an end recently when his right shoulder became painful to the point where he was unable to throw. He sought the help of Dr. Alan Lanzo, Orthopedic Surgeon, who repaired his rotator cuff. He chose Active Life & Sports for his rehabilitation. Prior to his surgery Jim could do most daily activities but he could not throw a ball. Being able to throw again was the primary reason for undergoing this surgery. Jim stated "therapist Mike Wah gave me great confidence that he could help me to throw again". Jim participated consistently and aggressively in his rehabilitation program. He gained full range of motion and made great strides in gaining strength.

Much to his relief and joy he was able to return to participation with his softball team. In Jim's words "as a 71 year old softball player I am able to look forward to many more days of play and continuing to work in my business". At Active Life & Sports we are proud of Jim and his achievements. We are grateful for the opportunity to have helped him get back in the game of his passion.

Physical therapy in the past for my back problems didn't help, and I had to live with the pain for 15 years. The progressively worsening pain led me back to my doctor who recommended ALS for therapy. I feel better and am mostly pain free with the ability to independently manage my symptoms.

Patient D.B.

 


 

"The best physical therapy facility I have been at and I have been to quite a few. Nice people!

When I first came to ALS after total hip replacement, I was unable to lift my leg off the bed when lying down. After exercises in the gym and pool, I can now walk without any limp. My concerns were listened to carefully and addressed directly."

Patient W.S.

 


 

"Thank you for the wonderful therapy experience after getting my left knee replaced. You did an excellent job, as always. Everything was handled efficiently and with a personal touch. You have a great team at Active Life * Sports. All are caring and encourage you to do your best.

I would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone. I am very happy with my new knee and my progress.

Again, thank you so much for everything."

I have known Mike for many years (more than 15 years) since he owned and managed Advanced Injury Management. I have always enjoyed working with Mike due to his knowledge, reliability and professionalism. In all the years, no matter if referred to Advanced Injury Management or now Active Life and Sports, I have always had a good outcome.

Mike and his staff pay attention to each individual's needs in order to motivate the patient to achieve the best outcome from the program (e.g., a patient who had some knowledge and background about fitness) with a shoulder injury and had surgery did not feel PT would add any value to his recovery. Active Life and Sports staff was able to change his view and cooperate with his therapy program and return to his regular duties.

Another strong point is their experience working with employees, which is a very important component in the Worker's Compensation. Active Life and Sports is able to provide on site work hardening program at the job site to avoid the patient being out of work again due to the attendance hardening program. I also intend to refer difficult cases or cases with specific requirements from employers to Active Life and Sports since I know that Mike and his staff's professionalism will get the job done.
