    Neck in a bind!

    When my primary care physician realized that my shoulder and back muscles were like iron and giving me grief, she recommended physical therapy! The first visit was perfect! My PT identified my troubles right on! It was a gentle examination and treatment with success! I left soooo happy!

    Andy put a lot of thought into my treatment. He gave me tools and an exercise regiment to get me strong and keep me strong. I won't hesitate to go back to him if needed.

    Spreading my hips

    I was a very athletic 60-year-old man when a golf injury — yes, stretched muscle led to years of awkward walking, osteoarthritis and hip deterioration. Full left hip replacement helped, but I was bogo candidate. Andy baker and bpt is helping me regain movement — stretching, exercises and support.

    Great treatment plan.

    Dr. Andrew Baker was very professional and took time to get the background and timeline on how I hurt my shoulder. He assessed my range of motion and showed me several exercises to do. He also took time to answer all of my questions.
