What's Your CORA Story?
My shoulder and arm muscles were hurting when I first arrived at CORA to the point where I couldn’t use my arm. They knew exactly what exercises I needed to do! That you have the right person doing the front desk!! Janice is always so pleasant! And all of the different therapists were outstanding in getting me back to normal.
I came to CORA PT because I heard you provide great care. I had gotten therapy close to my home but wasn't making the progress I was expecting. I decided to drive a longer distance to Bluffton to see Walker Smith, DPT, and I am so glad I did!! Walker is very knowledgeable, professional, kind, and had a great personality so I felt very confident, comfortable and motivated. He was able to restore my range of motion and strength back to pre-injury baseline. This included exercise, manual therapy, and dry needling. His skills are exceptional, and I highly recommend him for your physical therapy needs. The receptionist, Janice, was always pleasant, smiling and made every effort to accommodate my schedule. Keep up the great staff. Because of my interaction with these 2 employees, I have recommended CORA Physical Therapy multiple times. I hope I don't need you again, but if I do......I wouldn’t go anywhere else!
The therapist at CORA did an evaluation and tailored a program specifically for my needs. They are experienced, sensitive, empathetic and easy to work with and they seem to know just when and how to push me for best results.
