Tawnie was always a bright spot in my week. She's caring, experienced and outstanding at what she does. I'd recommend her to anyone seeking physical therapy.
Tawnie was great!!! After dealing with my injury for over 6 months, my hamstring is doing great and I am back to doing all of my regular activities without pain! Tawnie was motivating and caring, I would definitally go back to her.
Tawnie is awesome, she is caring, really pays attention to you and you can tell that having you get well really is a personal responsiblity that she feels for all of her patients.
I just wish I followed through with the at home stuff better than I do :)
And Myrna rocks! (hope I spelled your name right)
Tawnie, my fantastic physical therapist, is the best! She is positive,encouraging, funny, and honest. CH has an awesome receptionist, Mirna, who is efficient yet very personable. We made a great team, not only improving my physical condition in huge increments but also keeping our sense of humor and enjoying our time together. If you want to repair your sad muscles fast, laugh at yourself and your situation , and enjoy your time while doing it, go to CH Physical Therapy! They rock! Oh, yes, and Robbie is nice eye candy for the ladies (sorry, Robbie, but I just couldn't resist). :)
Impressed – I just finished PT with Alice for problems with my knee and neck. Both were recurring issues that I had previously thought I might just have to "deal with." Alice gave me stretches and strengthening exercises that significantly improved both conditions, and on my last visit she gave me a plan for continuing the exercises to hopefully prevent future problems. She and the other staff were always kind, encouraging and courteous, and worked to accommodate my schedule. Alice always asked how I was doing and changed my routine as needed. She is very knowledgeable and was willing and able to answer all my questions. I am relatively young and fit, and I enjoyed the environment at c.h. because it seemed more geared to the active individual than another physical therapy clinic I had been to. I even enjoyed going to my appointments because it was just like going to work out at a gym. If I need PT in the future I would definitely choose c.h. again.
Attention was on stretching damaged shoulder muscles – C&H diagnosed my injury and determined that I needed stretching, alignment, and rest with no painful excersizing. Robbie physically relaxed my shoulder muscles, adjusted my neck vertebrae, and gave me stretching routines. I am very satisfied with the professionalism, diagnosis, and treatments I received at C&H. I am one who has kept in shape by running and excersizing most of my life. C&H kept me "In the Game".
No frills, no touchy feely, no questionable high tech procedures like electro-stim, ultrasound, or massage. A good place for athletes and those committed to training. Focus on strengthening the muscle groups that are weak and allow your injury to linger.
I have, also, witnessed Colin working with and improving the non-athletic, the arthritic, and the chronic pain patient with fibro-myalgia.
Lifetime Fitness for me – I started an exercise program 30 years ago and have been consistently exercising ever since. Even though I tried different diets and workout plans my habits and thinking weren’t always best for me and I had a hard time achieving my goals. It took a long time to find the right niche to achieve a level of fitness attainability that I desired.
In 2002 I listened to an AM radio station that broadcasted a fitness program on Sundays that Colin Hoobler hosted. I became hooked on his philosophy on exercise to get a quality workout in 30 minutes and healthy eating. I wanted to reduce my time in the gym and made a New Year’s resolution (2003) to make an appointment to see if his plan would work for me. I was amazed to learn there was a more effective way to workout. After taking a series of training sessions I saw definite results and have been on his program every since. At my initial consult I didn’t think I could lose weight and it wasn’t my primary concern to see him, but I decided I’d try the nutrition suggestions Colin recommended. I lost 30 lbs and have kept it off. Believe me, my happiness level jumped sky high.
This year I decided to return to CH Physical Therapy & Personal Training for a refresher course. Glad I did because over the last 7 years I somehow got sloppy with my form. I will always have a burning desire to take care of myself when it comes to physical fitness and I’m thankful Colin Hoobler’s knowledge & professionalism is the best that can be found. Follow his recommendations and you will definitely see results.
Thank you Colin, I’ll always be a follower of yours.
Best Choice for Physical Therapy in all Portland – I have had recurring back problems due to travel for work plus suffering from plantar fascitis. So, my orthopedist recommended CH Physical Therapy and I have been so impressed with the therapist I have been working with: Katie @ the Cornell Rd in Beaverton.
Based on the progress from my first consult, there is evidence of the improvement since I've started. My back and core is stronger and I have exercises I can work on when I'm traveling or at home. Ironically enough, I enjoy my sessions! You will not regret any therapeutic sessions here, even if you can only go once. You will leave more knowledgeable about what to work on and heal your problems.
Katie has been a consummate professional. She really prides herself on her work: she creates a different routine for each session and always provides an explanation of what she is helping me to strengthen. Katie always has a positive and cheery attitude; she is one of the few professionals that I really respect for her knowledge and demeanor.
c.h Physical Therapy – c.h. Physical Therapy helped a lot to strengthen my buckling right knee, and an arthritic left one. I've been to three or four PT facilities in the Portland area, but this is probably the best one for strengthening weak muscles. Alice at the Cornell Rd. facility, carefully evaluated my situation, established a challenging routine for strengthening and stretching and firmly put me through my paces. She was attentive and very good at answering the many questions I tossed at her. She even phoned a couple of times to just check on how I was doing. After suffering for months with the right knee problem, I noticed significant improvement after the first week, and even the creaky arthritic left one seemed to improve. The office staff was very good at getting me appointments at times that worked best for me as well as accepting a few unavoidable last minute cancellations without any fuss. The facility was clean and airy, and seemed to have enough room for everybody, even during the peak hours of activity. All in all, a job well done! I hate to admit that I'll be back, but I probably will, and won't hesitate to do so. Thanks again.
