Top of the line professionals. My doctor had referred me to an orthopedic for a knee issue causing horrible pain; unable to determine diagnosis. The orthopedic doctor took another set of xrays, never examined my knee, nor was he interested in how the injury happened. He decided a cortisone shot would provide instant relief and said for me to return in two months. After a week without relief I made an appointment with Salmon Bay PT and saw Claire Storck. Within five minutes she knew exactly what was wrong , explained I had soft tissue damage and said two months of therapy I should return to normal without further pain. I would highly recommend anyone consider this organization as the first contact for any physical therapy issues. You won't regret this choice!
I am delighted with Salmon Bay Physical Therapy and especially with Claire, the therapist attending to my injured Achilles tendon. My injury has been treated knowledgeably and professionally with care taken to understand my special circumstances. I recommend them highly.
I went to Salmon Bay PT after a major back injury. While I walked in thinking I had one issue, Claire quickly and correctly identified the cause of my pain. She always balanced in her approach between encouraging rest, hands on treatments, and home care exercises. She knew when to gently push me when I was nervous about re injury. In addition to this care, I was able to bring in my bike to make sure it was properly fit to help prevent future injury. Because of Salmon Bay PT I have climbed Mt. Saint Helens, run my first half marathon, and hiked countless miles this summer. I am stronger than I was before my injury & I am so tremendously grateful.
