“I had total knee replacement that required rehabilitation and I chose River Rehab Physical Therapy. I was a little apprehensive at my first visit as to exactly what was going to take place but after a couple visits I was very comfortable with my decision. I was referred to River Rehab by a friend who had very good things to say about their services. I contribute my success to everyone that was involved, including the office staff. My decision to go with River Rehab was the right one and I will recommend them to my friends. Thank you Aaron Eversmeyer and staff for my successful rehabilitation, I sometimes forget my knees have been replaced.”
