Thank you to our patients who share their success stories with us. The following update is from a Bozeman patient of ours who recently completed rehab with Jason following knee surgery. After her surgery and rehab, she completed demanding hikes in the Highland Mary Lakes and Grand Turk regions in the San Juan Mountains in Colorado. She writes to Jason "...Again, my thanks for your persistence and ability to prescribe what was needed." Congratulations to D.H. for taking on these demanding long-distance hikes with elevations up to 12,400 feet! May her inspiring endeavor be an inspiration to others and especially, you, as well!View more testimonials from Excel PT clients »
