“I have found Lisa to be a wonderful Physical Therapist. I have worked with her several times and she has helped me a great deal. She is easy to work with but also makes you work to get the progress you need. She is professional and extremely knowledgeable about how to help you.”

“I was hit by a truck while bike commuting and had a tibial plateau fracture, separated AC joint and whole mess of other things. I was in a wheelchair for 3 months and then began PT at Biojunction. I worked with Lisa who was a perfect blend of professionalism, good humor, and realistic expectations. I have been a heavily competitive cyclist for ~20 years and was not sure what this recovery process would be like, but was continually impressed with the team at Biojunction helping me get through it. The facilities were excellent, even in the unique times of Covid-19, and I looked forward to going and making progress every appointment. I made essentially a full recovery (full physical abilities back, just still regaining some muscle memory and strength from almost a year off) and couldn’t be more satisfied with the treatment I received at Biojunction. As cliche as it is I hope to never go back, but if the need arises there is no doubt where my first choice will be.”

“I want to express my deep appreciation for the skillful care and treatment I have been receiving from Lisa Curtis. My knee has had issues for >30 years. I started physical therapy due to an acute flare up of the knee. Lisa’s calm and thorough evaluation and treatment program has left me hopeful that I can actually improve my mechanics to better than before the flare, and help me return to hiking, biking and dancing. I recently experienced a real improvement where I could actually feel myself walking up and down the inclines and steps, using muscle that had been turned off for years, and which have been rehabbed back to life. I should note that I am a retired PT, after 40 years in the field. Lisa is able to meet me where I am, provide any explanations I need, and also actively treat me like a partner in my rehab.”
