The most positive changes since starting PT is being able to resume normal activities and regain strength and function of my left hip.

When I came in, I was experiencing leakage whenever I ran, jumped, and sneezed due to postpartum pelvic floor weakness. I was able to run today without any problems. The exercises have been working and I can feel the improved control and strength of my pelvic floor. I was always greeted by name. My PT made the experience comfortable. She was very knowledgeable and friendly and handled a delicate issue with professionalism.
- I Can Feel the Improved Control and Strength of My Pelvic Floor!
When I first came to Full Potential, I was struggling with bladder leakage. I would plan where to go and park so I could use the bathroom before I would continue with my day. After my therapy, I no longer feel like I plan, I just continue with my day. Laughing, sneezing and coughing are no longer an issue for me. I was so impressed at how kind everyone was. Everyone was so helpful when you ask a question. Amanda made the whole experience so comfortable. I so enjoyed having her as my PT. Her knowledge of my condition was so appreciated.
- Laughing, Sneezing and Coughing are No Longer an Issue for Me!
I now have my full range of motion and strength back, so I can now carry on a full and functional life! The entire staff is very positive and friendly. Amanda was able to get me back to a full range of motion and with the help of the support staff, I have gotten my strength back as well. This has been the best physical therapy I have ever had!
- This Has Been The Best Physical Therapy I Have Ever Had!
The exercises that were taught to me gave me the relief from pain that I’ve dealt with for over 3 years! I believe the best quality was in taking plenty of time with me to adequately instruct the importance of how the pain occurs and how to prevent it from starting.
Five Stars all around!!!
- I Gained Pain Relief After Dealing With it For 3 Years!
My hips and legs are stronger. My balance has improved so much! Everyone here is very friendly and kind. There is a level of professionalism I haven’t seen before at a Physical Therapist clinic. The staff treated me with respect and worked very well with my limitations!
- My Hips and Legs are Stronger!
I came to Physical Therapy for my neck pain that was caused by stress. I didn’t even realize I was in so much pain, I was just living with it and I thought it was normal! When I was seen by my doctor, he recommenced I come here to ease the pain I was having. I knew I had to cut back on the pain relievers I was taking, but I didn’t know how. Now, I have cut back a tremendous amount since coming to therapy. I never dreaded coming here because I always knew I’d feel better after coming. Every time I came, I learned something new and I always do those things at home when I feel pain coming on.
I definitely recommend people who are in pain to not live that way. I don’t have one negative thing to say about Full Potential. Every one here is so friendly and always has a smile on their face.
- I Never Dreaded Coming for PT Because I Knew I’d Feel Better After Coming!
I have greatly strengthened muscle groups in the thighs, calves, and back to erase SI pain and pain from multiple tears in upper thighs from climbing up and down steep hills. Full Potential is a GREAT institution!!

All the staff in the office with whom I interacted with were attentive to my needs and seemed genuinely interested in my success. There was a positive atmosphere created by respect and the right amount of humor. Thank you Full Potential!
- My Range of Motion and Strength Has Increased!
The biggest and most positive change for me has been my progress with walking. I’ve had so much trouble with walking properly and now I’m able to get to and from class with little pain. Also, I was able to actually play volleyball which I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to do. I also am able to go up and down the stairs. This is something I thought I wouldn’t be able to do, now I am doing it with ease.
I think all of the faculty does a great job at explaining what they expect from the patients. They are all so welcoming and understanding of the pain that I feel. They don’t ever push me to an extremely painful point, but I do feel like I’m being pushed every time I come in. I love the entire staff here! Thank you all very much for everything! I am grateful I came to Full Potential!

- I’ve Gotten My Life Back!
At Full Potential, after a knee replacement, I worked with Dr. Carrie Metevia and Joel Flenniken. Carrie and Joel provided me with all the “why” of what the therapy, exercises and continued homework strategies would accomplish. The continued exercises provided the strength to recover what surgery had undone. And after it was done, I could hop. I couldn’t before knee replacement, and now the hop is back. Every person I met – from desk to table, was a positive encounter. It was a good journey back.

There are days when my ankle hardly hurts and I have found increased mobility and flexibility in my neck, shoulder, and ankle.
Full Potential is committed to resolving issues. They provide a hands on therapy (I have been to PT’s who do not do manual therapy) and they genuinely care. They are always friendly and never judgmental. They are really, really nice people that I now consider friends.

The biggest change has been that I have been able to understand my pain issue and how it occurred. I have been able to work with the staff to leave optimal strengthening and foot placement and stay aware of what I am doing and CAN do to help myself.

I have significantly less neck and back pain when I sleep.

He is extremely knowledgeable, kind, and professional. Joel has been great too. He offers helpful advice in helping to do my exercises properly.

I can use my hands again and with little to no pain! I have gained both strength and flexibility and am able to do most of what I could do before my injury (and Jack has his work cut out for him since my injury occurred 8 months before I started PT.)
My experience here was fabulous! Diane and Veronica always greeted me by name and with a smile. They are professional and friendly! The facility is always clean – waiting rooms and gym.
