Well, guess I will be back to NLPT again...I recently fell and broke my foot and before I could get released from the foot doctor I fell and landed on my head. Now I'm seeing a plastic surgeon. You see I am partially paralyzed on my right side due to a brain tumor, which I might add was noted by Katie my Northland PT therapist. Yes, she is my guardian angel who noticed I wasn't getting better, but getting worse. I was getting PT from a neck fusion surgery but kept dragging my leg. Who would of thought that all this time I had a brain tumor and was getting worse. Katie had been through so much with me that she recommended that I go back to my primary care doctor, as maybe we weren't looking out side of the box...she was so concerned but never did she scare me or let me know that something more was wrong. She really cared about me. Once the doctor diagnosed it we immediately did surgery but then the paralysis. That is where all the really hard work started. Again Katie and the other therapists came to the rescue. My life may have changed forever, but I never doubted that whatever the out come, that they wouldn't give me the best care around. Yes, there is probably other therapists, but I have recommended them to many others and never have they disappointed me. My life will never be the same and I will continue to use their services for as long as my life allows me to go there. But, I will be eternally grateful to Frank, Katie and all the staff for what they have and continue to do for me. Thank you for allowing me to share my story.

I have had therapy for a broken ankle in 2000, a broken knee cap in 2007, and currently in therapy for broken elbow, which required surgery, and damaged quads and hamstrings. I am in therapy at Pinnacle, Tiffany Springs, and i have NEVER had such awesome physical therapy! The staff are the best I have ever seen and they are all genuinely concerned for the patients well being! I came to therapy with my arm in a sling and on a 4 pronged cane. I am using my elbow without restrictions and very seldom use a small cane. I have made great progress and I would certainly recommend this group WITHOUT ANY RESERVATION! You will be thankful you did! I should know as I have used two other agencies since 2000.
As a stroke survivor, I attended - two of my six, scheduled sessions at the Northland Physical Therapy & Rehab Center. After completing a thorough consultation by Megan Theilling, PTA, I was scheduled for a 45-minute, "aqua-therapy session, under the supervision of Jenifer Dixon, PTA. I have nothing but good things to say about the staff there - to include "front office representative, Yashira. They all were professional & friendly! My wife & I are looking forward to a long and positive relationship with "NPT & R.
I've been seeing them for my knees for a couple of months now. They are a wonderful group of physical therapists. They manage to remain personable and professional simultaneously. PT is an awkward enough activity to engage in, so it's nice to have such helpful people and nice facilities. Would recommend!
