"I was very nervous starting therapy after my operation, but the friendly smiles and encouragement the TPTC staff provided helped me tremendously. "

In February of 2016 I had an unfortunate skiing accident that resulted in a severe knee injury. Soon after my surgeries to repair a torn ACL, MCL, PCL, and dislocated knee joint, I started the long road of physical therapy at Teays Physical Therapy. My surgeon, Dr. Browning, highly recommended TPTC for my rehabilitation.

I was very nervous starting therapy after my operation, but the friendly smiles and encouragement the TPTC staff provided helped me tremendously. I was always greeted at the door  with warm and friendly smiles, and that continued with my therapy. My therapist, Marcus Reynolds, made my husband and I very comfortable and welcomed, and really made the injury easier to handle.

I would highly recommend TPTC to anyone and everyone. The staff is very professional, on time, and keeps you moving toward your goals. The therapists and doctors stay in constant contact and make sure everyone is on the same page. When I hit a milestone, everyone at the facility was part of the excitement. They made therapy fun and gave me something to look forward to in my recovery.

"I am now walking a mile on my treadmill and have returned to woodworking and re-modeling parts of my house."

I chose Teays Physical Therapy Center for my rehabilitation following my knee surgery for a torn meniscus.  My wife had been there in 2012 and we were familiar with the facility.  During my therapy, I felt the staff was qualified, well trained, and very caring.  They made me feel comfortable and were  dedicated to my well-being and recovery.

I am now walking a mile on my treadmill and have returned to woodworking and re-modeling parts of my house.  Once again I am able to use my heavy equipment for excavating and helping out my neighbors.  I would definitely recommend Teays Physical Therapy Center because they are absolutely the very best people.

“​Rebecca O’Dell developed a therapy program that addressed my issues. Just after a few weeks of therapy I began to feel and do so much better. ”

After spending a week visiting with my son, an occupational therapist, he expressed his concern with the difficulty I was having with mobility and chronic joint pain due to arthritis.  He encouraged me to go to physical therapy and I was recommended by Dr. David Life to choose Teays Physical Therapy Center.

“After 6 months I regained full use of my shoulder thanks to the kind, respectful and dedicated staff at TPTC. ”

After non-invasive treatments failed, it was determined that I would need surgery to repair my rotator cuff by Dr. Chad Lavender.  I am very active and wanted to be 100%.  After surgery, the real work began. 

I could not have asked for a better therapist than Rebecca.  She is professional, approachable, knowledgeable, an excellent listener, and has a great sense of humor.  She kept me motivated and the whole staff were my cheerleaders. 

After 6 months I regained full use of my shoulder thanks to the kind, respectful and dedicated staff at TPTC.  Cindy Skiles, owner, checked in on me regularly and the front office worked around my work schedule in Charleston for late afternoon appointments.  Saying goodbye was like leaving my family.

I would tell my family and friends that I highly recommend TPTC without reservation.  You will be in excellent and loving hands.

“Because of physical therapy I can do things now that I haven’t done in 40 years. ”

Dr. Michael Robie referred me to physical therapy because I was experiencing weakness in my arms, back, and legs which was affecting my ability to get around. I chose to come to Teays Physical Therapy Center.  After only two treatments I could tell a difference.

Because of physical therapy I can do things now that I haven’t done in 40 years. My family has noticed that I can move faster and I will be ready to cut the firewood I burn in the winter at my farmhouse.

I would recommend anyone to go to Teays Physical Therapy Center.  They truly care about you.

“TPTC has a very professional staff which truly enhanced my outcome, my quality of life, and my personal self-worth.”

I am a heart transplant patient and had a right total knee replacement May 13, 2016 at the Cleveland Clinic by Dr. Bloomfield. I chose Teays Physical Therapy Center because of its great reputation for providing quality care in the Teays Valley area.

TPTC has a very professional staff which truly enhanced my outcome, my quality of life, and my personal self-worth. I entered the facility on a walker and each step was a challenge, both physically and mentally. My treatment consisted of exercises and techniques to increase my flexibility and strength. My personal goal was to return to practicing Yoga – a 15 year passion.

I finished physical therapy having achieved my goal of returning to Yoga with some temporary limitations. I believe this was possible with not only the technical and professional support, but also emotional support from my therapist – Todd Warner.

“Upon leaving on my last day, I was 95 % pain-free and had obtained full motion and strength.”

I tore my right anterior cruciate ligament, lateral meniscus, and  medial meniscus while playing basketball. I had subsequent surgery by Dr. Jasko at Marshall Orthopedics in Huntington and he recommended Teays Physical Therapy Center for rehabilitation of this serious injury. I participated in therapy at TPTC from March 2016 until September 2016.

Upon leaving on my last day, I was 95 % pain-free and had obtained full motion and strength. I was able to jog and was working out again. It was a great experience. The staff was always friendly and helpful and made sure I had everything I needed during therapy.

TPTC is a great place to go to – the staff was very attentive to me and pushed me to achieve a smooth and  outstanding recovery.

“Todd Warner, Certified Hand Therapist, has worked wonders in reducing my pain and improving my strength and movement.”

I came to Teays Physical Therapy Center after I sustained a right displaced transverse ulna fracture which resulted in a lot of pain and very little wrist movement. Dr. Cox was my orthopedic surgeon. I decided to go to TPTC for my rehab after hearing good things from a previous patient.

At TPTC everyone is very caring and friendly.  Todd Warner, Certified Hand Therapist, has worked wonders in reducing my pain and improving my strength and movement. I am extremely grateful for his determination to get me back to normal.  He’s amazing!

It’s a very friendly environment with individuals who actually care about your progress. I would recommend TPTC to everyone.

“I have returned to walking for exercise without significant knee pain, and am continuing the fitness program there to maintain my gains.”

My orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Adkins, referred me to physical therapy when my knee replacements began giving me trouble and hurting several years later. I had previous experiences at TPTC in St. Albans, so I chose to go back there for my therapy based on these past treatments.

After 2 months of therapy, I have returned to walking for exercise without significant knee pain, and am continuing the fitness program there to maintain my gains.  The care at TPTC is top of the line!

“You could not find a more caring and hard-working group of people that are willing to help you get back to a productive life!”

I was referred to physical therapy after my total knee replacement by Dr. Neginhal. I chose Teays PT Center in St. Albans because it is close to home, and I had friends who had physical therapy there.

Though the therapy has been rough at times, the staff has worked hard to get me through and make sure that I progressed to become stronger. This has been a wonderful group of people to work with.

You could not find a more caring and hard-working group of people that are willing to help you get back to a productive life!

“From a previous experience and an excellent reputation in the community, Teays Physical Therapy Center was my only choice.”

I underwent a rotator cuff repair on my right shoulder by Dr. Tao. After surgery I knew exactly where I would attend therapy. From a previous experience and an excellent reputation in the community, Teays Physical Therapy Center was my only choice. On each occasion I have received excellent care.

During my rehabilitation my questions were always answered allowing me to understand each phase of rehab following a rotator cuff repair. Christin adapted my program to challenge me so that I could meet my goals. I was encouraged each step of the way and the staff never gave up on me. TPTC got me to where I want to be and I couldn’t be happier. 

I would tell my family and friends if they want to get better don’t go anywhere else. Teays Physical Therapy Center is a first class professional facility.

“TPTC’s staff made me feel welcome and they provided the encouragement I needed to get back on my feet and feel like an athlete again.”

In early 2016 I broke my left hip while playing indoor soccer due to a congenital bone cyst that developed in my femur. The accident required surgery to stabilize my femur and I was unable to walk for many weeks. My doctor told me that my injury would require up to a year of physical therapy, and that I may not be able to return to playing soccer for Poca High School. Dr. Maurer recommended I choose TPTC for my physical therapy.

I had an excellent experience while at TPTC and I always looked forward to therapy after school. TPTC’s staff made me feel welcome and they provided the encouragement I needed to get back on my feet and feel like an athlete again. My physical therapist, Marcus Reynolds, laid out a rehabilitation plan that allowed me to be released from physical therapy in just 6 months. I’m looking forward to competing in soccer this coming fall and couldn’t be happier with the progress I made.

I would completely recommend TPTC to anyone who needed therapy due to my excellent experience and recovery.

“The staff care about each patient and work hard to make sure you meet your goals. Your success is their success.”

After having the anterior cruciate ligament in my knee reconstructed by Dr. Soulsby, I chose Teays Physical Therapy Center for my rehabilitation because they were close to my home in St. Albans, and also because they had been given great reviews.

During my recovery at TPTC, I had an overall great experience. The staff care about each patient and work hard to make sure you meet your goals.  Your success is their success. TPTC has a great staff that makes the journey to recovery easy and fun.

I would highly recommend getting therapy here. They tend to all ages and all injuries. If you’re looking for a supportive staff and a good time you need to come to TPTC.

“My experience is always wonderful. Everyone is so helpful.”

A knee replacement by Dr. Molina is the health issue that required therapy this go around.  I have actually been going to TPTC in ST Albans for about 18 years both as a patient and as a fitness member.  My family doctor first recommended TPTC to me.

My experience is always wonderful. Everyone is so helpful. They fix your problem no matter what it is.  They have taken care of my hand, neck, and knee. 

I tell everyone that needs therapy to come to Teays Physical Therapy. They treat everyone like family and take pride in their work!

“Upon initiating therapy, I was very anxious that I would not regain my strength and flexibility in a timely manner. The friendly and upbeat staff made me feel comfortable and at ease.”

I injured my ankle during a martial arts tournament.  My doctor and I were concerned that I would need surgery, but decided to try therapy before visiting a surgeon. I looked into where to go and TPTC was highly recommended by both Health Care Professionals and people who had previously been treated at the center.

My experience was overwhelmingly positive. Upon initiating therapy, I was very anxious that I would not regain my strength and flexibility in a timely manner.  The friendly and upbeat staff made me feel comfortable and at ease. My therapist, Todd Warner, and PTA, Promise Sigman, clearly understood my injury and prescribed the appropriate therapy and progressions for strength and flexibility. Re-evaluations were frequently performed to insure my ankle was improving.

I have already recommended TPTC to friends and family.  They were able to easily put together a plan that worked with my busy schedule and allowed me to improve at the fastest pace possible. Thanks to the dedicated staff, I am now able to compete and test for my First Degree Blackbelt as scheduled this summer.

“TPTC provided a great environment making me feel cared for as a whole person and not just my knee injury. The positive atmosphere here makes any recovery easier.”

I injured my knee in January 10, 2016 while practicing with my dance competition troupe. My family doctor referred me to physical therapy. I chose Teays Physical Therapy Center because it came highly recommended. 
During the first visit Christin realized my knee injury was more involved and immediately contacted Marshall Orthopedics. Within 2 weeks I underwent a right knee meniscal repair by Dr. Charles Giangarra. Following surgery I returned to TPTC for therapy. 

During my rehabilitation TPTC provided a great environment making me feel cared for as a whole person and not just my knee injury. The positive atmosphere here makes any recovery easier. My number one goal was to return to dancing.  Christin challenged me at the same time making physical therapy fun. 
Teays Physical Therapy Center made what could have been a grueling few months into a positive journey.  I have achieved my goal of returning to the Kelle Boggs Competition Troupe and Winfield High School Dance Team.

“From the time I arrived until I left the staff was always smiling and made you feel like part of the family.”

After years of arthritic pain, I decided to have a total knee replacement on March 16th  by Dr. Clark Adkins.   Ten years ago I was a patient at Teays Physical Therapy Center. I received excellent care so I wanted to return there following this surgery.

When I started therapy I had several complications that the staff helped me work through quickly. Everyone was friendly, pleasant and very encouraging. From the time I arrived until I left the staff was always smiling and made you feel like part of the family. They have great teamwork. I now have been able to return to my job as a nurse manager and have even joined TPTC’s GetFit program. I would highly recommend Teays Physical Therapy Center to anyone needing therapy.

“During my rehab, when I went as far as I possibly could, Cindy would show me another exercise that helped me even more.”

I was riding my bicycle when a dog ran out in front of me and caused me to wreck. I fractured my hip. Through surgery Dr. Raducan repaired it. Physical therapy was then recommended and I chose Teays Physical Therapy Center. During my rehab, when I went as far as I possibly could, Cindy would show me another exercise that helped me even more. I really improved and enjoyed my treatment. Within 5 weeks I was riding my bicycle again and walking without my cane. 

My appointments were always on time. Everyone at TPTC was courteous and did a wonderful job with my rehabilitation. I also thank the Lord for helping me during this time.

Tony Harris

“When I first came to PT, I could barely walk with the help of a walker, now I am walking household distances with a cane!”

I experienced a spinal cord injury from a motor vehicle accident in November of 2013.  Dr. Sheth, my family doctor, referred me to Teays Physical Therapy Center.  When I first came to PT, I could barely walk with the help of a walker, now I am walking household distances with a cane! 

My experience at TPTC has been great.  They are friendly and kind and understand me.  They understand my problems and are able to help me strengthen my muscles in order to overcome them.  They are on the ball!  By all means I would recommend TPTC to my friends and family.  This is the place to go.

“I love that it’s close to home and that the appointments are on time!”

When I was recently referred to physical therapy by Dr. Kuryla for chronic low back pain, I chose Teays PT Center in St. Albans because of my past experiences there as a patient. I love that it’s close to home and that the appointments are on time!

As always, the patient care during my most recent experience at TPTC was top-notch. They allow you to be a part of your own recovery. Their homework assignments are great, which lead to a speedy recovery.

I would tell any friend or family member to definitely go to Teays Physical Therapy Center in St. Albans!

“I first chose TPTC in St. Albans because of its close proximity to my home. I chose to come back because of the nice people who work there.”

I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in 2015. I have been referred to Teays Physical Therapy Center two times. The most recent occasion was by my neurologist Dr. Dave to address the resulting balance, stamina, and gait problems associated with this disease. I first chose TPTC in St. Albans because of its close proximity to my home. I chose to come back because of the nice people who work there.

The physical therapy I received here has helped with my balance issues. They have shown me ways to adjust my movements to help make getting around and everyday activities easier. I would tell my friends and family that the physical therapy here helps with making life with Parkinson’s more manageable.

David Shock

“I would tell anyone needing PT that not only am I very happy with the program and staff but my family and friends are also.”

My left hip was replaced by Dr. Manuel Molina in March of 2015. I then fell and broke my left femur in 3 places in April of 2015 requiring a second surgery. I have family and friends that have had physical therapy at TPTC for various reasons. We have all been very pleased with not only the therapy but also the staff, all of whom are always very helpful and friendly. 

TPTC has a convenient location in St. Albans where I live. My physical therapist was Erin and she laid out an excellent program for me. She was very concerned with my end result. I would tell anyone needing PT that not only am I very happy with the program and staff but my family and friends are also.

“I would not only recommend TPTC to my friends and family, I would insist on it.”

On October 31st, 2015, my life changed in a matter of seconds. While mowing my lawn the creek bank suddenly gave way. My right leg from the knee down was turned one-hundred and eighty degrees and the tractor had landed on my leg pinning it under the engine.  After a thorough evaluation, the doctor informed me I had dislocated my knee, crushed my tibia and broke my fibula, not to mention the damage inflicted to my ligaments and tendons. My primary care physician (Dr. Anita Yeager) insisted I see Dr. Molina for a consultation and surgery was recommended. He strongly advocated physical therapy to maximize recovery. Dr. Yeager instantly concurred and recommended I begin treatment at Teays Physical Therapy Center (TPTC) with Cindy Skiles.  

At TPTC I was treated with compassion and professionalism. Cindy and her staff immediately began working with me to develop a plan of action for recovery. Their encouragement and expertise went far beyond my expectations and I left every appointment with a new goal and a new sense of encouragement. TPTC became family to me. 

I would not only recommend TPTC to my friends and family, I would insist on it… I would personally drive them to their appointments, just to be able to say hello to my new family members.

“From sweet, efficient care in the front office to the positive atmosphere to the great results, my experiences were beyond my hopes or expectations.”

Following a broken wrist and surgical correction by Dr. Surface and extended immobility in a cast which led to a frozen shoulder, I chose Teays Physical Therapy Center for my rehabilitation. They were recommended to me by my good friend.  My experience at TPTC was excellent and exceptional on every level. From sweet, efficient care in the front office to the positive atmosphere to the great results, my experiences were beyond my hopes or expectations. I’ve had a 90% + recovery. 

All the staff were warm, helpful, and contributed to my healing. I felt like leaving family at my final session. I am profoundly grateful and will recommend TPTC without reservation.

“If a friend or family member needed therapy in the future I would personally walk them to TPTC and introduce them to the therapy staff.”

I had increasing left knee pain for approximately two years. I tried conservative treatment, including injections, and it got to the point I needed to have a knee replacement. On October 12, 2015, Dr. Paul Legg replaced my left knee at St. Francis Hospital. When it was time to have outpatient physical therapy, Dr. Legg asked me where I wanted to go. Since I had been a patient at Teays Physical Therapy Center in the past and had a great experience, I wanted to return there.

All the staff members at TPTC are fine people. I can now walk without limitations and I’m able to go up and down stairs in a normal fashion. If a friend or family member needed therapy in the future I would personally walk them to TPTC and introduce them to the therapy staff. I am very happy with the outcome of my surgery and therapy.

“I was a ‘scaredy-cat’ regarding my knee but everyone was very helpful in building my confidence as well as my strength.”

After years of experiencing arthritis pain, I had my right knee replaced. I wanted a physical therapist close to home so I asked my friends for advice in choosing a provider they recommended, so I chose Teays Physical Therapy Center. 

At TPTC, all of the therapists, assistants, and administrative staff were very professional and kind to me. I was a “scaredy-cat” regarding my knee but everyone was very helpful in building my confidence as well as my strength. They were knowledgeable, professional, and kind. They do all they can to get you back to a normal life.

John McCallister

“My experience at TPTC was nothing but outstanding from the first day to the last.”

I went over an embankment onto concrete on my riding lawn mower. The mower landed on my hand and arm. I had multiple fractures that required plates, screws, and pins for repair.

Dr. Adam Dann with Scott Orthopedic advised I see Rebecca O’Dell for my therapy.  Rebecca was truly a professional and extremely knowledgeable. My experience at TPTC was nothing but outstanding from the first day to the last, for a total of 15 weeks. This organization was professional, courteous, friendly, helpful, and considered the customer as the most important thing for success.

I would strongly recommend TPTC to all of my friends and family. They work as a family and you are treated as one. Outstanding.

“Because of their leadership and guidance, my rehabilitation has been successful.”

I was involved in a motor vehicle accident in December 2014.  I had fractured my pelvis in several locations.  I was non-weight bearing for the first few months using a wheelchair.  Dr. Aaron Sop was my surgeon.  By the grace of God, I am alive. 

I started physical therapy in March 2015 with Colby Mozingo, PT, DPT.  The staff at Teays Physical Therapy Center has always been professional, informative, and made me feel like I could do anything.  Because of their leadership and guidance, my rehabilitation has been successful.  I am hoping to return to employment, driving my school bus soon. 

From the staff at the front desk to the therapists, everyone was kind, supporting, encouraging, and wonderful.  They will always be very special to me.

“The surgery and the therapy I received has improved my overall quality of life and now I am able to enjoy the things I used to do.”

Following many months of increasing knee pain and disability, I decided to have a total knee replacement on January 13, 2015. I choose Vivek Neginhal to be my surgeon. Following surgery, I started therapy using a walker. In a very short time I was using a cane and then walking on my own. The surgery and the therapy I received has improved my overall quality of life and now I am able to enjoy the things I used to do.

I would recommend this facility for any type of physical therapy. The progress I made after my surgery was amazing. The equipment, the experienced staff, and the healing environment all came together for a great patient recovery.

Taylor Coalter

“I would tell my friends and family that TPTC is the place for them for rehab.”

I injured my knee in a soccer game on October 21st, 2014. Dr. Charles Giangarra reconstructed my ACL and repaired my meniscus with surgery. I first choose Teays Physical Therapy Center as my physical therapy provider because it was close to my home. Christin Knell was my physical therapist.

TPTC is a very clean and organized facility. All the staff members are friendly and want to help their patients get back to their “original self.” I plan to go to Ohio State next fall and would like to participate on the crew team and in intramural sports. 

I would tell my friends and family that TPTC is the place for them for rehab. The therapists want to see you improve and give you all the attention that is needed.

Rachel Estep

“I tell family, friends, teammates, and co-workers who ask (and even ones who don’t) TPTC is the place to go for their therapy needs.”

I had an anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction of my left knee by Dr. Paul Legg after injuring it playing roller derby.  Following surgery, I choose Teays Physical Therapy Center as my rehabilitation provider because of its convenient location and their reputation after speaking with others who had therapy there. 

After surgery I was unable to lift or bend my leg.  The therapists at TPTC got me back on my feet and hopefully I will be back on the track soon.  My experience there has been amazing.  My friends and family all know how awesome my experience has been.  I tell family, friends, teammates, and co-workers who ask (and even ones who don’t) TPTC is the place to go for their therapy needs.

Billy Wright

“Cindy and her staff took me by the hand and did not let go. They worked hours with me and I saw progress immediately.”

I was involved in an automobile accident on September 3rd, 2014 which resulted in severe back pain.  After being unable to do much for four months I was referred to physical therapy and I choose TPTC.  I came to therapy hardly walking.  Cindy and her staff took me by the hand and did not let go.  They worked hours with me and I saw progress immediately.  The therapists pushed me to meet my goals, however, did not require me to do more than I felt I could do. 

Regarding my experience I would say to my friends or family members, “This is the only place to be.”  They take you in and make you feel like family.  They love their job and they love to see you walk out with your head held high and reaching your goals.  I have never felt better in my life.

Trudy Vriendt

“TPTC is a wonderful place to get your life back together as soon as possible following surgery.”

One year ago my family doctor, Elizabeth Brown, referred me to Teays Physical Therapy Center in St. Albans to strengthen my left leg.  My knee pain worsened in the summer of 2014 and I was referred to Dr. Clark Adkins.  He recommended a total knee replacement.  I had surgery on October 22nd.  Since my previous experience with TPTC was wonderful I returned there following my knee replacement.

During therapy I was given the appropriate amount of encouragement and was taught every step of the way so my recovery was quick.  The therapy I received was professional and extremely caring.  All of the staff were friendly.  TPTC is a wonderful place to get your life back together as soon as possible following surgery.  I definitely encourage others to use TPTC for their rehabilitation.

Sandra Loch

"I had therapy at TPTC after my ankle surgery and I knew I wanted to return there for my shoulder rehabilitation."

I injured my shoulder in a fall following ankle surgery.  An MRI revealed a torn labrum, rotator cuff tear, and necrosis of the humeral head. These injuries required a total shoulder replacement.  I had therapy at TPTC after my ankle surgery and I knew I wanted to return there for my shoulder rehabilitation.  I started in therapy one week post-op. With hard work and encouragement from my therapist, Rebecca O’Dell, my range of motion consistently improved. After three months I was referred to TPTC for work conditioning with Doug James and Herm Hundley to improve my strength and endurance.

The staff at TPTC is always professional, friendly, caring, and kind. I can’t imagine a better facility in which to seek care. If needed again in the future, there’s no doubt I would go to TPTC.

John Cantrell

“I am treated like family and would highly recommend this facility for someone in need of rehabilitation.”

I had a motorcycle accident on May 7, 2014. I suffered multiple fractures of both lower extremities, ribs, and clavicle that required ten surgeries and hospitalization for 2 ½ months. I choose TPTC for my rehabilitation based on my previous experience as a patient, and their reputation.

When I arrived at TPTC, I was walking with a walker and unable to put weight on my leg or drive. I wasn’t sure if I would ever be able to return to work at my job at Toyota. Since then I have regained the ability to walk and I have returned to work at Toyota where I am a Team Leader. I have been able to walk a mile and I have returned to riding my motorcycle.

This is my third time as a patient at TPTC and I have always had a successful outcome. I am treated like family and would highly recommend this facility for someone in need of rehabilitation.

Larry Zuspan

"Many of my friends and neighbors spoke very highly of the professionalism of the entire staff at TPC and I totally agree with their observations."

During the summer, I received a total hip arthroplasty by Dr. Ali Oliashirazi at Cabell Huntington Joint Replacement Center. Shortly after the surgery, I began my post-operative rehabilitation at TPTC with Cindy. Being an avid outdoorsmen, my goal was to complete the rehab process and be able to participate in the WV fall hunting season. During the seventh week of rehab, I was hiking in Pocahontas County, WV and was able to navigate the lower hills without any difficulty.

The rehab exercise plan that Cindy recommended for me is working great and my goal was met. I’m a firm believer that the benefit you gain from exercise/rehab is in direct proportion to the effort that you put forward. All of the therapists at TPTC are always willing to give encouragement and instruction on how to perform the exercises correctly. Many of my friends and neighbors spoke very highly of the professionalism of the entire staff at TPTC and I totally agree with their observations. This organization runs like a “well-oiled machine.”

"I was always treated promptly and politely. All the assistants were so kind. I have already recommended TPTC to my friends."

Pain started in my left shoulder approximately two years ago. I found out I had a rotator cuff tear and had surgery on March 5, 2014 by Dr. David Soulsby. Previously, I had a hip replacement and had therapy at TPTC. Following my shoulder surgery, I wanted to return there for my rehab. 

Rebecca, my therapist, was tremendous. She was gentle but very firm in helping my shoulder to recover. I was always treated promptly and politely. All the assistants were so kind. I have already recommended TPTC to my friends. I am continuing to work out as a fitness member at TPTC.

Garnett Bowyer

“Everyone at TPTC had the ability to make you feel special. I could not have asked for a better climate in which to get better.”

I was losing strength in my lower extremities which resulted in a loss of balance. I needed physical therapy.  I chose TPTC based on my wife’s previous experience with this company. 

The staff was magnificent, especially my lead therapist, Jennifer Marsh.  Everyone at TPTC had the ability to make you feel special.  I could not have asked for a better climate in which to get better.  They made me feel that my medical concern was the most important issue in their daily schedule.

I would highly recommend everyone give TPTC the opportunity to provide your rehabilitation when needed.

"With guidance in exercises for what to do, how much and when, my shoulder was healed and strong enough for my trip. It was a great experience."

I had torn my rotator cuff that required surgery. I was in physical therapy from January through May 2014. I chose TPTC because of my previous good experience there.

Following my surgery I had an aggressive goal and timeline for my recovery. I was preparing to paddle the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon in June 2014. Rebecca O'Dell and other staff members at TPTC worked with my schedule to meet that goal. With guidance in exercises for what to do, how much and when, my shoulder was healed and strong enough for my trip. It was a great experience.

The professionals at TPTC are just that: professional. The facility is nice, clean, and well outfitted and the staff is wonderful.

“At TPTC you become part of the family. All the employees have your best interest in mind.”

Two years ago I had a left total knee arthroplasty with “Dr. Neginhal’s implant”.  I completed my post-operative rehab at Teays Physical Therapy Center with Christin.  Recently my right knee needed replacement.  Dr. Neginhal used a customized knee implant by Conformis. Mentally, I was better prepared for the second surgery. Once again Christin assisted me with my rehabilitation.  We set certain goals and I worked hard to complete everything she asked me to do.  I returned to work at Randolph Engineering one week after my surgery.    I had an incident with stairs that increased my knee pain. I immediately called Christin and she calmed me down and instructed me in what to do to resolve the issue. 

At TPTC you become part of the family.  They work with you to make your therapy a great experience.  All the employees have your best interest in mind.  After 3 years, I am looking forward to riding my Harley again soon.

“There are other PT offices in my town but this time I choose to come to TPTC because I knew I would get the best care.”

On October 23, 2013 I had a right total knee replacement by Dr.  Clark Adkins.  I was referred to physical therapy and choose TPTC in St. Albans because of convenience.  Since that time I had a left total knee replacement on March 26, 2014. 

There are other PT offices in my town but this time I choose to come to TPTC because I knew I would get the best care.  Every visit has been excellent.  The staff is kind, compassionate, and passionate about their work and are truly interested in helping their patients.

I would highly recommend TPTC.  My progress has been smooth and I am very pleased with my results.

“Everyone is genuinely interested in how I am and what’s going on in my life.”

I was having trouble with my shoulders.  They were “frozen” and lacked mobility.  Teays Physical Therapy Center in St. Albans was very convenient for me and some of my friends recommended TPTC highly. 

When I go to therapy it’s like going to a good friend’s home.  When I arrive I am greeted by name.  Everyone is genuinely interested in how I am and what’s going on in my life.  My therapist, Sarah, is very knowledgeable and kind and always explains how and why we do a specific exercise. 

I would refer anyone to TPTC.  I have had a terrific experience there.

“The doctor at Johns Hopkins recommended physical therapy and I returned to TPTC because Rebecca exhibited a real concern for my progress.”

I was falling a lot and had little muscle strength, especially in my thighs. I was referred by Dr. Akins, my family doctor. Rebecca was my therapist and is the one who realized that my problem needed further evaluation. I was later diagnosed at Johns Hopkins Myositis Research Center as having a rare condition of Inclusion-Body Myositis.

The doctor at Johns Hopkins recommended physical therapy and I returned to TPTC because Rebecca exhibited a real concern for my progress.

At TPTC the patients are recognized by their first name and always greeted with a smile. The therapists assist one another as needed and TPTC just seems to be a happy place. 

I would recommend TPTC without any hesitation.

“Following surgery, I went to another physical therapy facility for one day. I realized I had made a mistake and I called TPTC.”

I had knee pain for approximately three years. When cortisone injections stopped helping my symptoms, I decided to have a partial knee replacement. I had the surgery on March 14, 2014.

Following surgery, I went to another physical therapy facility for one day. I realized I had made a mistake and I called TPTC. I was seen within two days.  Colby was my therapist. Overall my experience at TPTC was excellent. Everyone from the front desk to the therapists and assistants were friendly, kind, and knowledgeable. 

I am at least 80% better. I am completing all my activities of daily living and I am glad to be walking again in the community, at the store, and the mall. If I am faced with another surgery I would definitely return to TPTC.

“When I retired in June 2013, I wanted to keep physically fit and did not want to become just a ‘couch potato’.”

My wife and I have received therapy at TPTC multiple times for a number of problems. When I retired in June 2013, I wanted to keep physically fit and did not want to become just a “couch potato”. I decided to join TPTC’s Get Fit fitness program.

Denise, athletic trainer in charge of the program, was very helpful getting me started. She continues to check on my progress. Everyone is always ready to help me if needed. 

On most days I walk to and from therapy. I have lost 40 pounds. I am now off my hypertension medication for the first time in 15 years. We have recommended TPTC to numerous family and friends. Thanks to everyone for a win-win!

“I would highly recommend Cindy and her staff. They are all caring, well trained professionals that will give you their all.”

I have had several surgeries in the past which required physical therapy.  I chose to go to TPTC. We first met Cindy at St. John United Methodist Church when we moved back to Teays Valley from New Jersey.  My wife and Cindy sat next to each other in the choir and became good friends.  Later my wife went to work for Teays Physical Therapy Center, and has since retired. 

I had rotator cuff repair from Dr. Molina in 2013 and when my left shoulder started to give me functional limitations, I returned to Dr. Molina for a total shoulder replacement.  Once again, I choose Teays Physical Therapy Center for my rehabilitation.  My appointments were always on time and the therapists had reviewed the charts and were ready for me.  They made sure I did the exercises correctly and were always ready for my next exercise.  I would highly recommend Cindy and her staff.  They are all caring, well trained professionals that will give you their all.

“In a matter of 9 weeks, my pain was gone. I was thrilled with my newfound strength and endurance. ”

21 years ago I had bilateral partial knee replacements by Dr. David Santrock. In the last few years, I began experiencing chronic pain and especially weak knees. I went to see Dr. Oliashirazi for total knee replacements.  He told me my partial knee replacements were in perfect condition and referred me to physical therapy.

TPTC is just minutes from my house in St. Albans.  Several friends had recommended St. Albans TPTC. Doug James was my physical therapist and designed my individualized treatment program. Doug was thorough, insightful, and experienced as a team leader. With the help of Doug, Erin, Tamisha, and Mary, my treatment program was successful. In a matter of 9 weeks, my pain was gone. I was thrilled with my newfound strength and endurance.

Dr. Oliashirazi was most pleased with my progress.  I would highly recommend TPTC to anyone in need physical therapy. I joined the TPTC fitness program. Never again will I allow chronic pain to negatively impact every aspect of my daily life.

“Not only were they able to anticipate and meet my needs, I was able to return to work four weeks ahead of schedule.”

I am an RN at Cabell Huntington Hospital in the burn unit. On October 20, 2013 I slipped down a wheelchair ramp at home and sustained on open fracture of my ankle. I was taken to the emergency room where Dr. Garabekyan was on call. My fracture required an open reduction internal fixation on October 28th. I was placed in a splint and non weight bearing for at least two weeks. I was graduated to an air cast and was referred to physical therapy in the middle of November. I chose Teays Physical Therapy Center because it was close to my home. Christin was my therapist. The staff was well educated, compassionate, and dedicated to returning patients to their normal lifestyle. Not only were they able to anticipate and meet my needs, I was able to return to work four weeks ahead of schedule on February 24th. The TPTC staff was kind and everyone knew your name. You were always greeted with a smile. The entire staff was eager to see you succeed.

“During my rehab, Christin helped me set a strong game plan which she adjusted along the way based on my progress. This shaved months off of my 12 month recovery outlook.”

I am an equipment operator for US Well Services.  On July 3, 2013 I fell at work and ruptured my right quadriceps tendon.  On August 16th I had surgery.  Dr. Tao repaired my tendon.  I was in a brace until October 29th.  I was referred to physical therapy to start rehab.  I chose Teays Physical Therapy Center because their reputation in the community is “the place to go for rehab”.  During my rehab, Christin helped me set a strong game plan which she adjusted along the way based on my progress.  This shaved months off of my 12 month recovery outlook.  I have been released from my physician and returned to work on March 5th doing my regular job.

I would highly recommend TPTC based on my personal experience as well as the skill of the staff.  Everyone treated me as family and took a great interest in my concerns.  I hope to return as a CrossFit member when I am in town.

"My experience at TPTC has been amazing. My doctor said that physical therapy would be the key to getting me back into working condition. I have now been approved to return to work."

On October 4, 2013 I was performing with Disney Live in the Philippine Islands. When I jumped and landed on my left foot, my knee popped and I tore my meniscus.  I was unable to work the following day.  I was transferred back to the United States where Dr. Clark Adkins performed surgery on November 8th. 

Following surgery I became a patient of Teays Physical Therapy Center based on the recommendations of friends and family.  My experience at TPTC has been amazing.  My doctor said that physical therapy would be the key to getting me back into working condition.  I have now been approved to return to work.  It would not have been possible without the dedication of the therapist to see improvement.  I will be leaving on December 22nd for my next assignment in Australia.  Maintaining a positive attitude truly helped me during my rehab at TPTC.

“The entire staff was kind and knowledgeable. Even though I was not always the best patient; they had patience working with me. ”

 

I am an avid cyclist. On September 25, 2012 I had a significant bicycle wreck in which I severely separated my right shoulder. I went to the emergency room but needed to see an orthopedic surgeon for a consultation. I saw Dr. Stanly Tao, at Scott Orthopedic Center, who reconstructed my AC joint on October 19, 2012. I was soon referred to Teays Physical Therapy Center by recommendation of Dr. Tao. I know Cindy from church and worked with her throughout my rehabilitation. On my first day of therapy my shoulder range of motion was poor but through systematic exercises I was able to increase my range of motion to 95% of normal.

My physical therapy experience was very rewarding. The staff helped me understand the reason why they were having me do each exercise. The entire staff was kind and knowledgeable. Even though I was not always the best patient; they had patience working with me.

I am looking forward to being back on my road bike in the near future. Thanks TPTC.

"TPTC has the most wonderful staff that I have ever encountered. I would highly recommend anyone needing therapy to TPTC for a wonderful, professional, healing experience."

I had right shoulder pain for 4 to 5 months with tingling in my index finger and thumb. My family doctor ordered an MRI which showed that I had bone spurs in my neck. He referred me for an evaluation with Dr. Matt Walker. After the evaluation, Dr. Walker then sent me to physical therapy for treatment. Since I had been a patient at Teays Physical Therapy Center before I chose to have my treatment there.

My therapist, Rebecca O’Dell, has helped me tremendously with my neck and arm through her guidance in exercise and using traction. I have had a great experience here. From the time I entered the door the receptionists were smiling and greeting you by name.

 TPTC has the most wonderful staff that I have ever encountered.  I would highly recommend anyone needing therapy to TPTC for a wonderful, professional, healing experience.

"There aren't enough words to describe the excellent care I received at Teays Physical Therapy Center."

I chose Teays Physical Therapy Center because I was not completely satisfied with the care I had received at another physical therapy facility. I had low back pain and was losing mobility. I heard good things about Teays Physical Therapy Center and asked my doctor to refer me there for therapy.

There aren't enough words to describe the excellent care I received at Teays Physical Therapy Center. Cindy and her staff are very professional and care about you and your road to recovery. I was in pain with limited mobility on my initial visit to TPTC and after my therapy treatments; I am no longer in constant pain and have regained my mobility. I am now enrolled in their fitness program and look forward to going every day.

I would recommend Teays Physical Therapy Center to all my friends and family.The staff is very friendly and is willing to assist with your every need. They are family oriented and make you feel like you are part of their family.They just can't be beat.

"I am grateful for the gift of health TPTC has given back to me, including my ability to walk again."

In July 2011, a sudden fall and a trip to the emergency room revealed a giant cell tumor that had been growing in my femur and caused a fracture.  The tumor was removed by Dr. Felix Cheung at Cabell Huntington Hospital. In its place a large bone graft and metal plate was secured to my femur with seven screws. A few months later I required a second procedure to increase flexibility and decrease scar tissue. Prior to coming to Teays Physical Therapy Center I received home therapy. I choose TPTC after it was highly recommend by my home health agency.

My experience at TPTC has been very rewarding. I knew I had a long road of recovery ahead. My therapist, Christin Knell, never made that road seem unreachable. With her positive attitude and her consistent motivation, she gave me the tools necessary to improve every day. Christin and the staff were always there with an encouraging word to achieve the next milestone in therapy. They created a warm and inviting atmosphere, always giving guidance with a smile. I am grateful for the gift of health TPTC has given back to me, including my ability to walk again.

I plan to share my experience with my friends and family because I would trust their health in the hands of the staff at this facility. Not only did I walk away a stronger person physically and mentally but I have made unforgettable memories and new friends.

"I would not just refer my friends and family to TPTC, I would insist that they go there whenever they need any type of therapy."

Choosing TPTC was one of the easiest decisions I’ve ever made. Their professional reputation and visibility throughout the community indicates they are a business that not only cares about their patients, but also strives to be a leader in helping everyone lead a healthy lifestyle.

My experience as a patient could not have been better. Thanks to Cindy’s careful diagnosis and comprehensive treatment I felt immediate relief and results. And as important as that was, her ability to educate me on exactly how the injury occurred and how it could be prevented from happening again has been even more meaningful. The facility and staff were so welcoming that I made TPTC part of my daily routine by becoming a fitness client. I am stronger and more flexible than I have ever been, and I feel GREAT!

I would not just refer my friends and family to TPTC, I would insist that they go there whenever they need any type of therapy.

"The therapists at TPTC made helping me regain as much of my former lifestyle as possible their top priority."

I have osteoporosis. This resulted in me having a fractured leg in 2006 and back surgery in 2010 with ongoing leg problems. I chose TPTC as my physical therapy provider because of word of mouth recommendations by people that I knew had achieved good success with their treatment.

My experience at TPTC has been positive in pleasant surroundings by professional, friendly and caring staff. The therapists at TPTC made helping me regain as much of my former lifestyle as possible their top priority.

They are a caring and compassionate group with a positive attitude. They treat each of their patients with kindness, integrity and respect regardless of their background or condition.
