What's Your CORA Story?
Had a great experience at this place. Jim Bould was excellent. Really understood my problems and helped get my shoulder back to normal after my accident. Great guy! Can't thank him enough!
I can’t say enough about Jim Bould. After knee replacement surgery I dreaded the thought of PT. I was not a happy camper but he was so patient with me. Very knowledgeable and professional. After several sessions I knew I had picked the right place. I will definitely continue here after I have the other knee replaced.
Worked with Dr. Bould on an issue with my neck and losing feeling in my arm, etc. He took the time to not only try and understand the injury/issues but also the time to get to know me and along with that what type of "life habits" could be causing the issues. He helped design a rehab program for me that not only addressed the issues directly but also worked to fix posture issues, etc...that were also aiding the symptoms that I was having. Since working with Dr. Bould, I feel much better and no longer have the issues that I had before working with him. Highly recommend. He was also a very nice person to be around, always professional and really made me feel like a person not just a patient.
Jim Bould is one of the best shoulder rehab specialists. He has worked on getting my range of motion back, which I never thought could happen after a 270 degree labrum tear. He caters the exercises to you and uses all types of techniques to help loosen the shoulder joint and relieve pain. They start you off with warm-up, effective exercises, manual therapy, then ice/heat and stem. I highly recommend coming here for your rehab.
I fractured my left scapula last April and for those of you who don't know what that means I'll put it this way, my surgeon told me the severity of my injury was less than 1% of all shoulder surgeries. Makes you feel good hearing that. After an intense surgery and recovery period I was sure that I would never have the same range of motion I had prior to my surgery but my physical therapist, Jim Bould, has worked with me for almost a year and my shoulder has showed amazing recovery. My original prescription was to do physical therapy 3 times a week for 2 months and Jim worked with me extra and encouraged me to continue to strengthen my shoulder. The entire staff is really friendly and highly recommend doing therapy here for all injuries. Jim has gone above and beyond working with me, even when I got discouraged by the severity of my injury. Thanks for your help Jim. I'll be continuing my therapy there and look forward to getting my shoulder range of motion back.
I have had three rotator cuff surgeries and Jim Bould is by far the best of the three therapists I have had. The other two surgeries were at different PT providers. I am ahead of the curve in range of motion and other areas here in my third month of therapy. I highly recommend this firm and especially Jim.
My therapist, Jim, has always made me feel comfortable and listens to my newest aches and pains. He shows genuine concern and is very knowledgeable, helping me to understand why I am doing certain exercises. Jim has helped me with back, neck, and shoulder pain. I am now a believer in physical therapy and would recommend him to any of my friends.
I love this place! Every time I am greeted by name by the fabulous staff and am always asked how I am doing. Jim, my physical therapist, is a miracle worker. He always squeezes me in when I need it and always works with what I need that day. I have become stronger, pain has dropped, and he always knows exactly how to fix an issue I'm having. He provides me with exercises and feedback to take home with me too. I highly recommend this place and Jim!!
The staff at CORA are professional, friendly and very helpful. Jim is an excellent physical therapist who really listened to my concerns, answered my questions and made appropriate recommendations for my achilles tendonitis. He also communicated my progress with my physician. The entire staff at Apex is friendly, helpful, and professional, and Jim really knows his stuff. He's an experienced and knowledgeable therapist who used a variety of modalities and exercises that decreased my pain and improved my strength and range of motion. He continually updated my home exercise program as I improved. I would highly recommend this practice to family and friends!
Great place. Jim worked with me for my foot / ankle pain and instability. There's been a definite improvement with less pain, increased strength, and more range of motion. I am so happy that my physician referred me to CORA and I'd highly recommend this facility for someone in need of therapy.
I had muscle strain and impingement issue with my left arm. No matter where I positioned my arm, I couldn't get rid of the pain and I was miserable. After 4 weeks of therapy provided by Jim Bould, my pain disappeared! He gave me just right amount of challenges to improve the strength in my arm, and never overloaded me. He knew what he was doing for sure. I would highly recommend CORA Apex if you need physical therapy.
I was impressed by how hard they worked to help me! I started seeing Jim and he was patient but encouraging. He really listened. When the COVID shutdown first started, I figured that would be it but NO! The clinic went above and beyond to set me up with a Telehealth therapist; first Bryan, then Melissa. When the clinic reopened, Jim reached right out to me and I came back in. I couldn't have come as far as I have without Jim! I couldn't recommend the CORA team at Apex more. Thank you!
I was referred by my Physicist (PMNR) and I am so glad I found this place for my PT. I really enjoyed my visits. Both Bailey (front desk) and Jim (PT) are very friendly, professional, courteous and made it feel so homely. Jim knows what he is doing. I really had a great experience in my few visits and I feel so much better. I highly recommend this place for any PT needs. It’s the BEST place for PT!
Highly impressed with this facility and especially Doctor Jim Bould. Facility was clean and welcoming which put me at ease given the covid pandemic. Jim used many different approaches including Astym, ultrasound, e-stim, and dry needling to get me back to a pain free, functional life. His knowledge and down to earth bedside manner kept me coming back to finish therapy. Thanks Jim and CORA!
EVERYTHING impressed me during my time at CORA. Cam at the front door is beyond charming. Kristi is a wizard! In just one visit I got about mobility back. It was so surprising that when checking my arm walking to my car I had to stop, go back to the front door, and just thank her again. Kristi is not only good at what she does but she is also sweetness personified. Taking her advice and doing her homework will get results. PT is a rough spot to be in, but her expert guidance has never let me down. She is a great leader, and her kind hand is visible in the quality of this location. I hope she never changes location because I would drive 2 hours one way simply because I trust her that much. Best service ever!
