Blankinship Physical Therapy is great...

"In terms of the physical care I have received, I am very happy with the results. I have total movement back in my shoulder. I no longer have any limitations using it. Michael was very knowledgable and professional. He explained what and why he was doing different proceedures, which I very much appreciated. He is great! I am equally impressed with the staff..."
