Great PT
13:01 29 Jun 22
The therapist at Back in Action was able to quickly identify my problems and gave me a set of simple exercises that helped right away. He has been able to push through years of immobility in an extremely short time. I regret not going sooner!

I had a wonderful experience with this practice - the PT was so gentle and wonderful. I will come back here if I need help in the future.

James Is awesome and so is the rest of the staff, I recommend this place to everyone I know that needs any type of PT treatment.
20:13 13 Feb 22
The staff at Back in action was able to help me get insurance authorization when others couldn't or wouldn't. They are welcoming and very professional.

I'd like to acknowledge David Mills for his work with me after a shoulder injury last summer. He was thorough in his evaluation of pain, strength, and mobility, and worked with me to get back to everyday function as well as playing recreational tennis again safely and comfortably. I'm back to see him now for a troubling hamstring. I always feel supported there, and encouraged that I can improve my physical condition to continue enjoying the activities I love.
22:34 27 Jan 22
Amazing place! They did a great job rehabbing my rotator cuff issue. I highly recommend them.

I’ve been dealing with severe tailbone pain for several years and had seen 6 or 7 different doctors and therapists with no relief when I finally found Back in Action. The therapists there were welcoming and knowledgeable and Hannah worked so hard finding many different strategies until she finally found the root of my issue and created a treatment plan. I can finally sit for long periods of time without crippling pain! She is so gifted, kind, thoughtful and creative and I’m so glad to have found her!

Hannah Kirkman is a miracle worker! I currently am in my third trimester of my pregnancy and developed leg and sciatica pain. Within several appointments Hannah was able to make me pain free. I am now stronger and more flexible because of her expertise. I always look forward to my appointments with Hannah, she has an amazing ability to personaly connect and relax you. A huge thankyou to Back in Action and Hannah for making this pregnancy a better pain-free experience!
15:57 16 Feb 21
Today was my last appointment with Hannah, and it's definitely bittersweet for me. She has been so wonderfully patient, kind, and encouraging in my postural restoration journey.I first visited BIA Apex to address concerns I've had with my posture. I've dealt with posture issues for most of my adult life, but Hannah helped me make so much more progress than I've ever had before. She's helped me become equipped to identify and address concerns with my body and to enjoy exercise again by being able to do it safely.If I could hire Hannah as a personal trainer, I would. I had a lot of fun picking her brain about muscles, nerves, and the body as a whole while she taught and guided me through new exercises to challenge and strengthen me.Julie, who works reception, is also very hardworking, patient, and kind. She helps give BIA Apex its friendly and welcoming atmosphere along with the rest of the staff.I can't recommend BIA Apex enough. I genuinely can't think of a single complaint against them. I've had so much fun learning and growing there, and I'm very thankful that I got to work with them. They care about their patients as people.-Andrew Brooks
20:33 15 Feb 21
I recently went to Hannah for help with an injured knee. She was very personable, knowledgeable, and professional. She helped me get back on the trail and I'm running pain-free again. I HIGHLY recommend Hannah if you need physical therapy!
20:38 13 Feb 21
Mary Brian is the best! She helped with PGP (pelvic girdle pain) when I was pregnant with my third child. Her magic hands made my pregnancy much more tolerable, and her personality made her an instant friend. The facility is very clean and they do a great job with spacing between patients. I have been to other physical therapists before, and they couldn't even compare to the level of care I received from Mary Brian.
19:42 11 Feb 21
Hannah started working with a patient with a long history of surgeries, and a longer history of fears and gaps in her education about what she could and could not do to strengthen her core and improve her agility. At the end of the course of therapy, I feel like a new person and am clear about how to strengthen my body while protecting it. Hannah, thank you for giving me knowledge, being a cheerleader when I needed it, and teaching me about "less/slow/consistent can be better than fast and furious. I feel I've been given a chance at being fit again. Go TEAM HANNAH!!!
18:09 11 Feb 21
Mary Brian is so generous with her knowledge and time. Yes, she absolutely helped me address my hip/lower back pain, but even if I came in with a random shoulder complaint, she would give me some exercises, tips, and education about that area as well. The attention she pays to the form of exercises means the exercises you do are actually working what they're supposed to work and you actually start to feel better. I'll go to her for everything!
16:11 11 Feb 21
I started working with Hannah Kirkman recently and she is AWESOME! She's very easy to talk to and fun to work with. I think it's really important to be able to connect well with your therapist and Hannah and I hit it off right out of the gate! She's very knowledgeable and explains everything we're doing clearly so I always know what's going on. Definitely recommend!
16:04 11 Feb 21
The exercises that Mary Brian taught me back in 2018 are still helping me today. Thanks!
15:42 11 Feb 21
Been going to this establishment for years! Staff is very professional and helpful. David Mills has been working with me for at least 5+ years. I have been suffering from severe chronic pain since 2005. He is a very thorough and knowledgeable physical therapist who also is awesome in the area of dry needling. Keep up the great work and I would highly recommend him if you need PT.Thanks,Tom M
15:13 11 Feb 21
I highly recommend David Mills. He helped me after my shoulder surgery. However I would see him for any PT need. He is hands down the best PT person I have ever worked with.
14:47 11 Feb 21
Hannah is the best ! She worked on me and my wife for shoulder ,back and leg issues. It has helped both of us tremendously . Their office is brand new and is very elegant . Always ensured to follow covid guidelines which made us feel comfortable . I would highly recommend it if you need physical therapy.
14:36 11 Feb 21
I started working with David Mills last year prior to COVID. David is a professional. I am always amazed at his knowledge and how he is able to translate that knowledge so that I can understand what is going on with my body. He listens, asks questions, puts himself in my shoes and truly cares about his patients. When COVID hit, I was very impressed with the quick adjustments the office made to protect me as a patient and their staff. As a tennis pro, I am often asked to give a recommendation for PT. I have, without any hesitation recommended David and Back in Action PT. I can’t tell you how many students I have sent David’s way and he has always been prompt at getting them in and treated them with the same care I received. The staff at Back in Action are a family. They know me and they care. I highly recommend going to see David Mills, you will be thankful you did.
01:17 11 Feb 21
I have been seeing Mary Brian for several months now and have been making great progress with pelvic floor issues. I had seen another physical therapist at another place for a few months before with no real progress, then found Back in Action and had hoped I would get to see Mary based on other reviews. Mary is very knowledgeable and happy to see me at our appointments. She really cares about her patients and is quick to email me back with any questions I have. I'm very happy to have found Mary and excited for the progress that we've made!
15:57 09 Feb 21
Working with Hannah Kirkman has been great. I've been to Physical Therapists in the past to help recover from injuries, but what's different about this experience is that she takes the time to educate about the body mechanics surrounding the issue so you can take these lessons with you and continue work on strength and control in the long term.
01:36 09 Feb 21
After two emergency spinal surgeries I knew I needed help to get back the strength and flexibility I deserved. MB was the perfect person for the job! Her non-judgemental, compassionate, experienced... but down to earth approach, coupled with her inspiring energy to push me when I needed it was the perfect combination to get me back into action again. MB gave me back the the mobility I missed and brought me back to dog walks and gardening again! I am forever grateful for her role in getting me back into good health and helping me to do the work I could never have accomplished on my own. She is a game changer and I will be forever grateful!
05:05 08 Feb 21
I highly recommend David Mills at Back in Action. I work in physical therapy myself and I always go to David for excellent, one on one care for my own needs. I am guaranteed to have improved function and a therapist who listens to me and works hard to help me reach my goals. The staff at BIA are very professional and helpful with scheduling, insurance issues and authorization as well. There are a lot of places to go to for PT in this area but you will not be disappointed with the highly qualified care and attention you receive at BIA.
02:12 07 Feb 21
Back in Action was a lifesaver for me in many ways. For TMJ, Abdonminal issues and most recently a knee surgery. David took the time to understand my goals, guided me in letting my knee heel and challenged me when I needed to. Can't say enough great things about Back in Action and would highly recommend this facility to anyone looking to recover with people who care about you.
21:37 03 Feb 21
I was a patient for a long period of time . Mainly I was treated by David. He is a wonderful therapist! He treated me for low back pain and serious TMJ. The jaw exercises and "Dry Needling worked wonders"! I am almost completely free of jaw pain. If pain returns, I use the pressure points and exercises that David taught me to relieve it quickly. Back pain is partly old age, but I miss the relief I experienced during David's care. Since we moved, I have not found another practice, staffed by such competent therapists. The entire group is very good, especially David.
20:36 03 Feb 21
I highly recommend Mary Brian! I have visited a fair number of physical therapists, and she is by far the most knowledgeable one I've worked with.
15:37 03 Feb 21
I came to Mary Brian after months and months of pain. I thought I would never get better. But, after a few months of PT with her, here I am able to get back to normal life. I can't believe it! She was amazing and knew exactly how to help. Highly recommend!!!!
14:52 03 Feb 21
02:34 03 Feb 21
I highly recommend Mary and BIA! A few months ago when I was 8 months pregnant, I could barely walk most days from pelvic separation. She helped me learn simple changes and exercises I could do to get me through my last few weeks of pregnancy. I would like to go back to her for pelvic floor therapy soon. She was extremely knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable with her passion for her practice and energetic personality!
02:11 03 Feb 21
I was referred to David Mills for physical therapy by someone I trust and respect and I can attest that David is knowledgeable, experienced, and provides excellent care. He listens, pays attention to what is working or not working, and puts together a treatment plan with adjustments as needed to achieve the goals. I definitely recommend David Mills and Back in Action Physical Therapy.
01:19 03 Feb 21
I have been so fortunate to work with David Mills. I have numerous issues and he has helped formulate a plan that targets the problem. It does require me to do the work, of course, but thanks to David for putting me on the path in the direction I needed to head in order to get better. In addition to being incredibly knowledgeable and sincerely listening, his schedule is always on time and he is very professional.
00:11 03 Feb 21
David M. Helped me with PT after shoulder surgery. He encouraged me to keep working towards my mobility goals even when I was ready to quit. He later helped me through a hip injury. So grateful for an awesome therapist to help keep this aging body going!
00:02 03 Feb 21
Mary Brian helped me heal my back pain when I had lost hope that I could ever feel better. She listens, is knowledgeable, has healing hands, and is overall an enjoyable person to be around. I highly recommend her for any of your PT needs-and even those feminine issues you didn’t think a PT could help you with!! She’s awesome!
00:01 03 Feb 21
I would highly recommend David Mills. He has helped three members of our family heal from injuries - back, knee and hip. He has been able to assess the issue and the best treatment. Super grateful we found him.Amanda Edwards
22:51 02 Feb 21
I started off going to David due to a back issue that my chiropractor nor a pain specialist could fix. I thought it was worth a try to see if i could strengthen my back. After some physical therapy sessions, he made the decision to Dry Needle my locked up muscles. After just 3 Sessions, I have had very little problems with my back for over 6 months and still going.. AMAZING stuff. I liked this place so well that i chose to use David again when i had shoulder surgery. Again, the professionalism as well as the individualistic approach to care is what makes this such a great experience. Back in Action is worth checking into for anyone that needs these services.

After 4 kids, I had back pain (SI) that I could not get rid of. A few sessions (plus at home work) with Mary Brian, and I feel the pain is finally gone. I'm so relieved!
20:00 31 Aug 20
I am extremely satisfied with the care I received at Back In Action PT in Apex. I worked with David Mills who was extremely knowledgeable & his instructions were targeted exactly to my needs. I have been in PT care far too often & have been to several clinics around the triangle. All were helpful. However, none really compare to the one on one care that I received at Back In Action PT. I highly recommend Back In Action to anyone in need of physical therapy.
21:14 02 Jul 20
I went to 2 doctors before finding Back In Action Physical therapy and none of those Doctors told me about physical therapy. It was made a difference for me and I am back in the game
17:44 15 Jun 20
Outstanding care. I particularly like the fact that you are seen only by a licensed physical therapist, not turned over to an intern. I have been in physical therapy several times before due to an active life during my 70 years and I can’t think of better care. My most recent need for therapy is a result of an accident that resulted in 13 titanium screws and 2 titanium rods inserted in my back. David Mills is a professional, knowledgable, and caring provider who helped me recover. I can heartily recommend Back In Action AND David Mills
18:52 06 May 20
I just saw Dr. Mary for chronic hip pain, shoulder pain, and pelvic floor assessment (9 weeks postpartum with my second child). She. Is. Awesome. She didn't rush through my appointment and she gave me her full attention, encouraging me to ask questions and to really understand what she was going through. I felt like she genuinely enjoyed educating me on how to improve my body and my pain. I felt completely comfortable with her, she's got a great sense of humor and had no issue with me having my baby in the appointment with me.I wasn't sure about this business practice, but it's one of three in this area so it is a small practice. Dr. Mary is head of pelvic floor and so she can handle things the way that she wants to. She was completely engaged with me through the entire appointment, and made sure that I had exercises and the knowledge to handle my specific symptoms. I've got my exercises, I've got my follow-up appointment, I can contact her whenever I need her. I feel completely taken care of and completely cared for. I walked out of my appointment very confident, and now the rest is up to me and being compliant with her recommendations.If you have any pelvic floor issues, muscle imbalances or compensations, absolutely go to this practice. They know what they are doing and they love what they're doing.

Had knee replacement on 9/23. Came to Bank in Action Physical Therapy 2 weeks later.I began working with David Mills. 10/31 had second knee surgery due to an infection that developed in the original site.Came back to begin working with David Mills again. I now consider David my friend! His professionalism, compassion, and kindness made it feel like we were a team. Went from great pain, poor range of motion, and stiffness to normal range of motion, no pain, and stiffness and swelling mostly gone.Had follow up with my surgeon, Dr. Andre Grant at Duke yesterday! He marveled at my recovery going to near normal in such a short time!I give great credit to David Mills In restoring my quality of life.
18:35 16 Jan 20
Good morning David & Sean, wanted to take a moment to thank you for the fabulous care and results that i received from BIA, via David. From the moment i arrived, with a non-functioning hand until the day my treatment was completed - i felt as though i was the only patient that David had. Have been to other PT clinics, and must say never received this level of care. Actually, the PT was preformed by an assistant-and most of the time i was left to my own devises. Wish you continued success as you build a practice with a fresh outlook to conventional PT. Thank you! deborah
13:07 16 Jan 20
I have had the pleasure of calling BIA my physical therapy home since 2016. I came to David after spending a few months in a nursing home with multiple traumas. From the first day where I nervously rolled into their clinic to the present day where I come in for "tune-ups", I have always been treated with genuine care and respect. They had me on my feet the first day, and the rest is history. David taught me to walk again, which is incredibly humbling to re-learn as an adult. After a few months of hard work at BIA, I was able to run, climb, and swing after my excessively active toddler like nothing ever happened. I am no athlete, but anyone with hyper children knows that physical agility is a must! Their individualized treatment left me completely satisfied. Frankly, once you experience their one-on-one PT, you will not want anything else. It is all about you and your injury, and they will go above and beyond to provide the best care they can.In my opinion, David has the ideal personality for working with post-trauma patients. He pushes you to do your best without being intimdating, while also being incredibly gentle and responsive to your needs.Without doubt, BIA was the best physical therapy experience I could have wished for after trauma. For me, a PT that will push me to do my best is worth more than any prescription my Orthopedist can write. That's what I have at BIA.
20:54 09 Jan 20
I had a very good experience at this location and would highly recommend. Mr. David is a very caring and knowledgeable professional. Thanks!
20:37 08 Jan 20
Very attentive and professional, would highly recommend
15:33 12 Nov 19
Dr. Mary Brian Yoffe is amazing! I've been seeing her for 2 months & she has changed my life! I've seen 5 other PT's in the last 4 years & she's the only one who has been able to uncover my true issue & now I'm healing & no longer in pain. She listens & asks questions & is totally engaged w/me. I love that they only see one patient at a time & spend the whole session w/you. I can't recommend her highly enough!
11:56 19 Oct 19
The building is new, but the practice has been established at their original offices for a while and is a wonderful small business. They take insurance, they don't double book or use assistants so you know you have your doctor's full attention, and they are easy to schedule with. I saw Dr. Mary Brian Yoffe, and she is one of the most incredibly talented and kind professionals I have ever worked with ( and I've worked with many.) She is specially trained and effective in treating Women's Health and Pelvic Floor for anyone, including postpartum. I received exceptional care and attention that was individually tailored to both my symptoms and my personal goals. This is the place to go!
