Patient Testimonials

  • “I came in with regular back spasms in my mid-back. Each session began with
    Priya’s magic hands working/massaging the main area where the spasms occurred
    and within a couple of visits, the muscles began to relax. I also was led through a
    number of stretches and exercises that not only loosened my entire back but also
    seemed to strengthen and firm up my back. I cannot thank Priya and Aryana
    enough for their hard work and guidance!”

    “I came to Melinda in bad shape. I had a pinched nerve in my neck causing pain
    through my back, shoulders and down to my fingertips – no feeling there! In
    addition, my hips and legs also hurt. Today, after a full series of visits, I am pain-
    free and able to walk, swim and workout. Biggest benefit, I am able to sleep all
    night, pain-free. Thank you!”

  • “I had a very bad fall causing extensive injuries to my wrist, arm and upper torso.
    Even the smallest movement caused pain in these areas. I was unable to bend
    down without severe pain in my chest, open the refrigerator door, move the car
    gear shift or parking brake. Not only have the Peak therapy sessions with Priya
    and Kris greatly accelerated the healing process and enabled me to recover
    rapidly, it has also given me greater range of motion than I enjoyed previously. I
    am forever grateful for Peak and all their extremely professional staff. I
    recommend them most highly.”

  • “I have utilized Peak PT for 2 problems, one chronic back and one acute problem,
    when I tore my ACL and meniscus. Pain was always a limiting factor for me and
    because of this, I usually was not able to get far with any exercise program. When
    they first saw me, I had very limited range of motion, extensive weakness and also
    chronic pain. The most important thing they did for me was to teach me the
    same techniques they used for my pain management. Once I began to employ
    these techniques and get my pain better controlled, I was capable of advancing
    my exercise routine and do more physically. THANK YOU PEAK PT!

  • “Strain and subsequent pain in my left hip made everyday activity uncomfortable
    – standing, pivoting, and walking. With the targeted PT and Priya’s coaching,
    there has been a rapid improvement to bring my hip back to normal.”

    “Three months ago in a bicycle accident, I broke my left hip. Priya was my
    therapist and I was very impressed with her knowledge of the human body,
    muscles, and joints. She focused on the muscles surrounding my left hip and leg
    and started me on an exercise program that was focused on strengthening my hip
    and leg. Within 3 months of my accident, I was back on my bike and rode 23
    miles. I would highly recommend Peak PT. Their staff cares about your needs and
    their goal is to get you back to normal life”

  • “I began PT about 3 weeks after having total hip replacement surgery. I was still
    at a point where I could only walk with great difficulty, either with the aid of a
    walker or a cane. After 6 weeks of PT, I am now at a point where I can walk
    normally, without aid, and can perform nearly all my normal activities at about a
    90-95% level. I worked with both Kris and Priya and they were both fabulous,
    helping me through a difficult recovery.”

  • “After a serious fall, I left the hospital in the fall of 2018 and was informed that
    walking normally again was doubtful. I arrived at Peak Ortho in 2019 by
    wheelchair. Now I am able to walked unaided with a cane by myself. Peak
    Orthopedic has changed my life in a very positive way. I have a renewed and
    refreshed confidence in myself. Thank you, Samantha, for your TLC and inspired
    advise. You have played a major role in my recovery.”

  • “After just 4 sessions of PT and deep tissue laser, my pain has dropped 80%.”

    “When elbow tendonitis persisted for 4 months and affected my sleep I thought I
    had better pursue PT. After just 4 sessions of PT and deep tissue laser, my pain
    has dropped 80%. I have high regard for my therapist, Seema, and look forward
    to a complete recovery in a short time.”

    “What a difference it has made in my life!”

    “In just fifteen sessions, Peak Orthopedic made a big turn-around in what I used
    to feel before starting with this therapy. At 70, I almost accepted my limitations
    and chronic pain, but thanks to Lionel and Seema, I am more flexible and stronger
    in just a little over a month of “overhaul”. What a difference it has made in my
    life! The staff is awesome and super friendly too!”

  • “The workouts and massages have helped so much.”

    “I had a grade 2 tear of my MCL from Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. When I came in, I could
    always feel a bit of pain and limited movement. But the workouts and massages
    have helped so much. It’s much more relaxed and much more stable. Lionel was
    very knowledgeable and explained things very well for me. By the latest
    sessions, I noticed a considerable amount of improvement. Thank you so much
    for everything! You guys were awesome to work with and fun to be around!”

  • “I’ll be grateful for everyone’s help for the rest of my life.”

    “I came in fresh off the biggest accident and surgery of my life up to this point. I
    had trouble with basic daily life and could not even walk properly. During
    extremely uncertain times, the COVID 19 pandemic, the PTs and all staff at Peak
    Ortho work with me to rehabilitate my leg. I was pushed safely along the long
    road to recovery and am so extremely thankful for their help. I even got the
    pleasure of having a send-off jog for my last PT session. I’ll be grateful for
    everyone’s help for the rest of my life”.

    “I feel my core and glutes are much stronger.  I have noticed and been told that my appearance has improved too!”

    “Before physical therapy I was very stiff and had limited mobility in my lower back. I did a lot of daily activities awkwardly with great effort to protect the lower back.  Now that I have completed physical therapy my mobility is much better.  I have learned to engage my core and glutes before doing everyday tasks and movement.  I feel my core and glutes are much stronger!  I have noticed and been told that my appearance has improved too!”

  • Dean Nelson

    “Over the five weeks…the pain was not only relieved, but eliminated.”

    “At first I was skeptical about my need for physical therapy, but I decided that maybe my doctor was right after all. At my first therapy session, Dr.Tyssee massaged my lower back and clearly identified the places where I was in pain.  The stretching exercises he prescribed addressed the pain caused by my tight muscles, and over the five weeks I saw Dr. Tyssee, the pain was not only relieved, but eliminated.  Dr. Tyssee is both personable and knowledgeable.  I would highly recommend him to others.”

  • Chris DeVries

    “My back pain disappeared and I gained an inch in height.”

    “I knew I needed PT for a long time.  I had serious back and shoulder problems from 30 years of sitting in front of a computer doing programming and 2 shoulder injuries.  The results were surprising.  My back pain disappeared and I gained an inch in height.  My shoulder is almost there and I can feel the strength returning.  I never wish to tolerate such pain for so long for no reason.”

    “I am a very satisfied client.”

    “Kris did a great job of diagnosing and treating my sciatica problem. She took an approach of progressively evaluating my condition and implemented appropriate therapy. It was very impressive that it took only 15 sessions to achieve success. Also, before treatment began, I was taking 2 Tylenol capsules a day. Now I don’t take any medication for the sciatica condition.

    I would also like to compliment Tom and Samantha for their help in gym exercises. They are very knowledgeable. The equipment in your treatment rooms and gym is first class and kept very clean. I am a very satisfied client and will not hesitate to return if additional therapy is needed.”

    “I am now able to drive with zero pain.”

    “Driving for me was torture. My knees caused me to experience unbearable pain while driving. With the knowledge at Peak Orthopedic I am now able to drive with zero pain. The physical therapy is designed personally to your needs and I can assure you that everyone there sincerely cares about your needs. Thank you POPT!”

  • Robert T.

    “I can now get back to the physical activities I so much enjoy and get my life back.”

    “I came here with a pretty serious knee issue that limited me from doing almost all physical activity. After the consultation and suggested therapy by the therapists, I can now get back to the physical activities I so much enjoy and get my life back. The staff was so helpful and encouraging. They are all professional, personable and very knowledgeable. I listened to their instruction and did what they told me to do on my own time. It really paid off as my knee issue has greatly improved and I can look forward to doing many activities I could not do before coming here. Most importantly, it has kept me from getting worse and possibly having surgery and for that I am very grateful to the entire staff. I highly recommend Peak Orthopedic to everyone in need of any physical therapy.”

    “I am stronger now than when I started.”

    “I arrived scared that my left shoulder was ruined. Over the weeks, after stretches, exercises, and strengthening, I have full use of my shoulder again. In fact, I am stronger now than when I started. I had very limited range of motion. Now, I have a slightly broader range of motion than before the injury. Instead of cortisone and surgery, PT facilitated a complete recovery. I am very grateful for the physical therapy, PTs, and PT assistants. The bright, clean facility and positive environment helped me to get into a positive mindset of recovery. Thank you so much!”

    “Steve…rehabilitated my shoulder to 100% in just 6 months.”

    “Steve at Peak PT not only rehabilitated my shoulder preventing me from surgery, but several years later, after a severe shoulder dislocation and surgery, rehabilitated my shoulder to 100% in just 6 months. Great staff as well. I enjoyed my time in both the Redondo Beach and Palos Verdes offices.”

  • Michelle B.

    “I now feel 100%. Amazing!”

    “My experience with Peak Orthopedic has been nothing but the best. My neck and head injury was bad, but, with the great hands of Kristina and Priya, I now feel 100%. Amazing! In only 6 visits, I can now move my head. Everyone has been wonderful, kind and I shall continue here as often as possible. Thank you all so much.”

  • Stella M.

    “Steve did an amazing job and now I am practically pain-free!”

    “I first came to Peak Orthopedic because of the pain I had with my neck. I had fallen in the tub while on vacation 7 years ago and had herniated the disc in my neck. Over the years, I was able to manage it with occasional PT, chiropractic care and acupuncture. From the time I woke up till the time I went to bed I had bad neck pain. What made the pain worse is that I have a computer related job.

    Dealing with this neck pain daily, I knew I couldn’t live like this and wanted to avoid surgery. By consistently going to PT for several months, Steve loosened that whole neck-shoulder area and gradually worked-out the big knots in my neck. PT along with all the exercises Steve and his team prescribed has helped me tremendously. Steve did an amazing job and now I am practically pain-free! Because of the type of work I do, occasionally, the neck pain would come back. But nowhere in comparison to what it was when I first started. By coming into PT for “maintenance,” I am able to keep the flare-ups down and manage that area better.”

    “They gave me a better quality of life than surgery could have.”

    “In 2015 I suffered a torn labrum in my right hip during a high school volleyball match. I came to Peak Orthopedic Physical Therapy to strengthen my hip and avoid surgery. I started therapy in an incredible amount of pain while simply walking. This hindered me from playing the sport I loved. The therapist helped me strengthen my hip and core through sport specific exercises, which made my rehab experience enjoyable. Unfortunately, I had to sit out during my senior season, but I was able to avoid surgery and even play volleyball in college pain-free. That was the ultimate goal. Peak Orthopedic Physical Therapy has an amazing and knowledgeable staff that will do all they can to make you feel better. They gave me a better quality of life than surgery could have.”
