I highly recommend Core Physical Therapy. Alex Spencer is a rock star!! Due to a back injury, I could barely bend at the waist on my first visit. Thanks to Alex, I have seen much improvement after a few visits. She is very knowledgeable, caring and explains everything well. Each visit I’m also provided with new stretches to try at home or as I’m traveling for work.
