Hershey Physical Therapy
“Before I met the staff at Drayer Physical Therapy, I thought it was time to call it quits on running, but they believed in my ability to return to running more than I did. The process was a lot of work, but they made facilitating my treatment easy. Every staff member acknowledged me by my first name and seemed to genuinely care about my progress as a patient. They didn’t just want to treat my symptoms, but their causes, and displayed an obvious desire to get me back on my feet, helping to motivate and encourage me in my return to running. The evidence of my positive experience at Drayer Physical Therapy came into full effect when I raced my first 5K in three years. I won the race and felt faster, more fluid and pain-free. I would highly recommend the Drayer Hershey Center to any athlete with the right attitude about getting effective physical therapy treatment for their injury.” – Hershey Physical Therapy Patient
