What are others saying about Tandem?
"I came to Tandem Physical Therapy because of several tears in my shoulder and my desire not to have surgery. I was in constant pain and had limited range of motion. My hope was that PT would just help diminish my pain. To my pleasant surprise, after 6 weeks, I am pain free and have full range of motion...I can now go through daily life pain free and with full range of motion."
"I am back to walking/running, going to the gym, and doing the exercises I was sent home with...I am looking forward to trying out my new set of legs in NYC in December PAIN FREE!”
"I had been having hip pain for a while but never did anything about it until I saw their sign. After about 6 weeks of therapy, I feel like a new person. Walking is so much easier!...As Lauren explained, and something I didn't know, unless your insurance requires it, you do not need a doctor's referral to use PT. Try it. It will more than likely change your life!"
