First and foremost, Bethany is supremely competent. She innately seems to know where my pain is and is skilled at helping to focus on various therapeutic techniques to help me heal. Bethany is professional, dedicated and kind to her patients. If there was a way to clone Physical Therapists she would be first on my list!

I don’t know where to begin with Clarity Physical Therapy. What started out as myself self diagnosing my shoulder pain. Also my sister encouraging me to go to PT. I have tried PT in the past for an ankle injury and they did nothing. So I was very skeptical about going to PT. My daughter-in-law suggested I see Craig and he was very Knowledgeable and professional. He had a plan that he followed through and got me back on the right path. The whole staff is wonderful, kind, compassionate and caring. They truly listen with their whole heart and help you through what you’re dealing with whether pain or dealing with insurance. You can tell that they take their job very serious and it shows. I would truly recommend clarity physical therapy and wellness center to anyone that needs a good PT therapist.

The team at Clarity bring a different level of smarts and professionalism to physical therapy. I’ve tried other PT providers without success for my injury. Craig evaluated my injury and provided a thorough explanation. I’m finally healed and moving on from my injury!

Clarity is an incredible physical therapy facility. I went in with acute debilitating back pain (I’m 33 yrs old, so this was not usual or expected). Not only was the supporting staff extremely accommodating, friendly, and attentive, but each of the physical therapist are phenomenal. Kevin and Don gave me personalized attention and developed a treatment / exercise plan that helped relieve the acute pain and is intended to strengthen the areas that caused the problem in the first place. Highly recommended.

I recently had an unexplained episode of Vertigo Craig at Clarity was able to fit me in the same day and resolve the spinning. He performed the Epley maneuver along with dry needling , stretching and electrical stimulation. Craig is extremely knowledgeable in healing the human body. One session with Craig and you will understand he is a person who leads by example in guiding clients to help their bodies recover from injuries. Clarity is a unique place that offers multiple therapies to accommodate all facets of recovery. I have nothing but Grace and Gratitude for the Clarity team for getting me back on track and feeling great again.
