I most appreciated the overall atmosphere at Greensboro Physical Therapy. Aart was attentive to my needs and ready to explain any questions I had, he was also encouraging of my therapy and progress. The size of the facility and familiarity between staff and other patients during my visits was very reassuring of no one being "lost" or overlooked as I have felt in larger more commercial practices. Thank you for that.

I have done the dry needling on my back and the success was overwelmingly successful. I had pain for years with my lower back after surgery. decided to try dry needling with full relief of pain. Thanks to Aart I am back on the tennis courts hitting tennis balls again!
