I was referred to Lisa by my orthopedic, as well as by a career tennis pro. Lisa did NOT disappoint! Within 3 sessions I was almost completely out of the pain that I had - caused by 6 bulging discs, a torn disc, stenosis, and a whole host of other back issues (primarily L and S areas). By the 5th session, I was back to all my normal exercise including cycling 50+ miles at a time; strength training 3-4x per week, and yoga. By 6 or 7 sessions I was completely on my own and pain free. Although she does not accept insurance, I filed myself and got at least some of the visit fees reimbursed. Regardless, it was a lot less expensive than surgery!! And of course the 'return to exercise' time was a lot quicker. She works magic! If my back - or any other parts - kick up again, I will be right back to see her.
I've suffered with low=back pain that ranged from tolerable to debilitating for twenty years following a hernia surgery. For twenty years I've been told the surgery was not the cause. This last time I found my way to Jolene at Back 2 Normal Physical Therapy for pelvic floor work. This has been a life changing experience. Scar tissue from the surgery has been the primary cause of the back pain and over twenty years I developed some bad habits compensating for the pain. Jolene explained to me what was happening in my hip and pelvic girdle, treated me, and gave me a rehabilitation program of stretches and exercises that are getting me not just Back 2 Normal, but back to better than my twenty year ago self. If you had a lower abdomen injury or surgery you owe it to yourself and your loved ones to explore the pelvic floor work done at Back 2 Normal Physical Therapy. Truly, it could change your life.
In this day and age it's hard to find someone who truly cares about healing, about the patient and someone who is willing to help them progress beyond expectations. I wish I'd gone to see Lisa before my Thoracic Outlet surgery, I was told that I'd be disabled with nerve pain for life and after 3 months I can tell you... the guy that told me that hadn't met Lisa. Call Back 2 Normal before anything else, it's life changing!
Even if you didn’t know what’s wrong with your body (pain wise) call Back 2 Normal. Come visit them. They will take care of you. They will listen, understand and find a way to help you. The office is beautiful, clean, serene and it always smells like heaven! The staff is so professional and loving. Thank you Lisa Chase for all you do!
They saved my life! I had the most miserable bladder pain for months. I was preparing for a life of disability. Then I came to Back 2 Normal Physical Therapy and Jolene started her pelvic floor treatment. After several appointments I was realizing relief. Each subsequent appointment resulted in more take home work. Then I was ready for their pilates mat class! As of this writing I have one mat class remaining to attend and I'm on 'come back if you want a tune up' status for physical therapy. I've never been so grateful for my health restored. Every single person here is compassionate, professional, approachable, knowledgeable, and did I say compassionate! 100% of my life quality is restored. And I'm coached up now to maintain my health.
Lisa & Liz are fantastic! I’ve rehabbed many injuries and surgeries. My experience at Back2Normal was super. Hands on, one on one treatment that is state of the art. If you need PT or massage therapy, this is the place.
Lisa, thank you for your expertise, patience and tremendous help!!! I have a frozen shoulder which is associated not only with limited mobility but with constant pain. With each session my mobility was greatly improving and most importantly the pain is gone!!! The staff is very helpful and welcoming as well. I highly recommend Back 2 Normal Physical Therapy.
Ive had a great experience with Lisa and her staff at Back 2 Normal PT. My brother recommended her, as she was so thorough and detailed in the initial evaluation. I had a pretty bad hamstring and hip injury from sports. We are slowly but surely getting me back. The energy and people there are amazing too. I am always excited to go to PT and then feel happy when I leave. I highly recommend Back 2 Normal.
Every employee is phenomenal. They are warm, knowledgeable and work to accommodate your schedule. I actually cancelled an initial appointment I had with Lisa Chase years ago. I couldn’t justify the price. When my back could barely function and I was running out of options and hope, I made the appointment. I regret not going to her those years ago. Lisa and her staff love and care about you, but they do not want to see you. Their goal is to fix you and see you for acute or maintenance visits. You will have improvement after one visit. And to me and my back, it’s worth every penny. I also receive treatment from Jolene who addresses my pelvic floor deficiencies and Charlene. Charlene is a master Pilates torturer. She and Lisa will work hand in hand on what needs to be strengthened and what needs to be left alone. They have my full support and trust. And coming from someone who initially herniated the affected disc at the age of 14, and have seen an encyclopedia of specialists....they are the real deal. Have faith, and make the call!
Lisa has helped me with my spinal curvature for 5 years. My first visit I had a lot of discomfort and was not able to walk very far. She gave me exercises to relax and strengthen my muscles. Have returned a few times with other related issues and she helped me again to improve. She is the best PT and so much more, just look at her credentials!
I fractured my shoulder end of November falling off of my road bike. After being immobilized in a sling for 6 weeks, I could hardly lift my arm. I was still in pain, uncomfortable and out of touch with my body. Eager to get back to training, I was referred to Back2Normal by a friend. My experience working with Lisa was beyond fantastic! She is such a professional and I enjoyed every visit to Back2Normal. It is now April and I will be racing in a sprint triathlon on Sunday! I would highly recommend this place, it was the best thing I could have done for my recovery.
5 isn't enough stars to describe Lisa and the team at Back 2 Normal. From my first phone call with the receptionist, Gayle, to the amazing treatment I've received from Lisa, everyone has been so friendly and helpful. Not to mention, I'm practically pain-free after a couple sessions. Good vibes, all around! 🙂
I have been with Back 2 Normal for at least 4 years. I’m a competitive runner and see Lisa regularly for maintenance and acute issues as needed. I also take Pilates 2 days a week from Charlene and Ilene. Both Lisa and the Pilates instructors are awesome! Very knowledgeable in their respective fields, pleasant to work with, and flexible. My daughter, who is a competive dancer, has been treated by 2 other physical therapists in the office, Kirsten and Jolene, and has had great results. Overall, the entire office is great. I highly recommend all services Back 2 Normal has to offer.
Three months ago, I wondered whether I would ever type on a computer again. I’ve had issues with what I thought was carpal tunnel syndrome for years. The doctors orders were to stabilize and ice my wrists, but it just kept getting worse. Finally, I decided I needed to try physical therapy. I read the great reviews on this place and I decided to give it a shot. With my first appointment, Jolene discovered that the problem wasn’t with my wrist, it was with my fingers. And that I didn’t need to stabilize or ice the muscles, I needed to stretch and strengthen them. Immediately, I started to notice a difference. And after following Jolene’s advice for two months, I can now type again without any pain! I can’t believe the progress I’ve made and am so grateful for the help and advice I received from Back2Normal!
Not only do I use the services at back 2 normal but recommend for my own patients. Excellent healthcare providers!
I've been receiving physical therapy here since I suffered a ribcage injury in 2013. As soon as I stepped foot into the office I was welcomed with utmost candor and care, and the service followed through tenfold. I started gaining my mobility back within two physical therapy visits and was introduced to so many new ways to take care of myself. Lisa's gentle, intuitive touch is sophisticated and powerful; she was able to heal an injury that none of my previous doctors could. Back 2 Normal changed my health for the better and I can't recommend them highly enough!
Charlene has been working with me for 3 months. I injured my back and could barely function when I walked in. We came up with a plan and Charlene quickly got me moving again, building strength and in a short period of time, back to doing things I did pre-injury. I'm continuing to work with Back2Normal and would highly recommend it to anyone.
A miracle took place working with Lisa Chase and Kirsten Snellenburg. I could barely walk without pain or without balance. They gave me freedom to walk again! The cause of my physical problems are not answered, but what matters is I can get up, stand and walk, with strength and mobility. I could not believe the flexibility and endurance I gained so quickly. I am back to normal and it feels awesome!!!
I encourage ANYONE that has a back issue, core issue, or pelvic floor issue, see the Team at Back to Normal. Lisa Chase, the owner has personally helped me to be in the best shape I can be in for the issues that I have with my back. Her theory is not to keep you longer than necessary, which I have appreciated because of time and money. She has a terrific team that makes you feel like you are family, starting from the front desk to the last person on the team, which also includes, massages, exercise for core and strength, pelvic floor which enables you to move muscles that you never thought would work again! So happy I found Back to Normal....
Lisa Chase and the Back 2 Normal team have helped me not once, but twice, recover from injuries original thought to require surgery. As a former college athlete and coach, I've been exposed to all types of "physical therapists" over the years. There is no one like Lisa Chase. Her holistic approach, personalized care, and innovative techniques have helped me become 100% pain free AND more fit and balanced than before the injuries. The second you walk into the office, you know they are compassionate healers. Hands down, I'd recommend Lisa and B2N to anyone in the country.
Just had my first appointment with B2N and Lisa Chase. I was hopeful and excited, as I seem to have begun to find and build a team of health care providers that understand the dilemma of the health care system, insurance, and the difficulty in treating the whole problem(body), rather than 1 symptom at a time. I went in trying to remain open and with no huge expectations. I’ve been to Physical Therapy before. I thought I was just seeing a Physical Therapist. That is NOT what I came away with. If you buy into Body, Mind, and Spirit, THIS IS THE PLACE. Lisa has only begun to build my plan. We have a lot of things to try, to see what works best for me, so not too much on the physical pain yet. My point, The counselling I received, and its result on my overall feelings of hope and wellbeing, went through the roof. It’s a new day for me. Thank you Lisa !
At Back to Normal you will receive a full team effort , from highly skilled and trained professionals. I have been using services at Back to Normal for a few years now. I have been treated by Lisa. She is very knowledgeable and skilled. Her hands on manual skills are excellent. She provides home exercises and works to quickly transition you to managing your own program. I also have attended pilates class with Charlene , who is experienced and able to provide the needed feedback to help facilitate continued healing and strengthening. She works closely with Lisa on your program. I also see Liz for massage therapy and again she is highly trained and has excellent hands on skills. She has got to be one of the best in town!
Lisa has been recommended to me by Mary Pierce and her brother David. I have had hip problems for 3 years and saw many doctors who promise to help me and just made coming back again and again with no improvement. Lisa quickly told me there was no other solution than surgery. She was totally right and helped be stopping to waste my time and money. She helped me a lot with the scar tissue I had on the belly and gave me a lot of good advices. Lisa is really good In was she is doing. And she is very very honest. I definitely recommend !
I went to Back 2 Normal after experiencing chronic knee issues which were preventing me from playing tennis. After going to Back 2 Normal, I received a program to get me back on the court. I have been playing ever since! Back 2 Normal does a great job of assessing the issue and developing a program specific you!
Lisa is amazing. Her understanding of how my joints and muscles work combined with different techniques excercosed to correct my specific shoulder and hip pain worked excellent. In about three months everything was truly “back to normal”. Also some of the best massages that also provided productive help to my recovery came from some of Lisa’s team members. Specifically Liz!
