Patient Success Tip

As mask mandates and guidelines constantly change, it’s impossible to predict where we’ll be when it’s time for your visit. Please refer to the note(s) on our office door or call our office for guidance about masking prior to your arrival. If you do not have a mask with you, one will be provided by our office.

Patient Success Tip

Keep a calendar or journal to record any physical changes you experience during your treatment plan. This helps provide our staff with a clearer view of your progress and takes the burden off your memory.

Patient Success Tip

Do ALL your homework. Yes, it’s tempting to skip to the ice and rest portion, but by following the exact protocol your therapist prescribes will dramatically improve your performance so you can return to life as quickly as possible.
I have been seeing Katie Miller at Custom Physical for a myriad of issues. She has worked out a lot of problems I was having with my spine and hips that traditional doctors couldn’t seem to fix. She has allowed me to continue my daily activities and kept me on the go.
