Joint Effort is by far the best physical therapy clinic with the best staff and therapists I have encountered. I have had the misfortune of requiring six Staph-related operations in the past two years, each of which involved the removal of bone and tissue. I have also had the extraordinary good fortune of finding Joint Effort and benefitting from their work following each of my surgeries. Each time, despite doctors? predictions, due to the physical therapy and related services Joint Effort provided me, I exceeded expectations and recovered fully (including complete strength and mobility) and function physically as if no surgery had happened.
The staff of Joint Effort seamlessly:
? Arranged all treatments around my schedule;
? Began and ended all sessions on time;
? Processed all insurance issues with zero effort on my part;
? Communicated regularly with my doctors regarding targeted treatment;
? Provided precise therapies (including manipulation, exercise instruction, massage, stimulation, heat, and cold) which succeeded every time in leading to and beyond my complete recovery; and,
? Even followed up with calls long after treatment ceased to find out how I was faring.
To a member, the staff is expert, experienced, empathetic, and extraordinary. Each goes well beyond expected treatment giving professional care so personally and personably that my extensive visits became more like visiting a family or group of friends than a clinic. I was made to feel part of a healing community. Even more important, I was made well.
Lloyd Hines, Joint Effort owner, was my first therapist and was a superb diagnostician and therapist. For my remaining treatments, Evan Deckelbaum took my case. He was laser-sharp in knowing what to do and how to teach me what to do at home so that my pain grew less with each treatment and I healed more quickly. He was remarkably kind and completely patient. The most amazing aspect of his work is that not only did I recover, but I am back to all of my normal activities (bicycling everywhere, regular trips to the gym) and more. The facility is well-equipped, always clean, and expertly staffed by the kindest and most learned providers at all levels and in all aspects of my experience there. I hope not to require such services again, but should I need them, I would go nowhere else. Period.
P.S. As for the other reviews here, I find it very mysterious that anyone would believe that any treatment could be instantaneous. Not on this planet! And on this planet, Joint Effort is the best of the best.
