From the time I made my first appointment and o each subsequent visit, I was impressed by the demeanor of everyone in the office, from the receptionist to my PT Daniel Gardner and the PT student Casey. The office is immaculate and the calm, considerate (for my age and PT problems) care I have received is very reassuring and very professional. I am delighted my rheumatologist Dr. Patricia Soscia referred me to such a good place.

I sprained my ankle in October and my orthopedic doctor recommended PT to me. After doing research, I found Elite Physical Therapy. It was easy to make an appointment. I first came for a consult and then made a plan on how I can improve. After the sessions, I definitely felt my progress improving.Shemaiah is personable and really friendly. She wants to see you improve and will work with you to obtain your goals.Highly recommend!

Came to Elite for help with back pain. JP got me back active quickly! The environment is light and supportive, other staff were encouraging even if they weren’t working with me directly. JP was able to assess what my issues were instantly and get me the necessary workout plan to build my strength up to keep my back pain from recurring. I would recommend anyone with PT needs to go here.

I really am grateful for the care that l received here. The setting is very hospitable and the PTs give you one on one attention. Liz (under the instruction of Deryl) was very knowledgeable and was patient with me throughout my sessions. She also gave the best massages! Unfortunately I relocated but I highly recommend Elite Physical Therapy to anyone in the RI/MA area.

I first walked into Elite PT on February 24,2021. I had been in excruciating lower back pain for about 6 weeks, I eventually came to find out through an MRI a few weeks after I began my PT that all the pain was coming from a compression fracture of the spine, 2 types of spinal stenosis and severe degenerative arthritis of the spine.Dan Gardner worked with me from day-1 according to his assessment of my symptoms. After getting those MRI results back I saw that he had just about nailed it as far as the right treatment and therapy to give me.On April 9,2021 I completed my last day of PT, never missing an appointment. I’m now able to do the things that I couldn’t do because of pain. Thank all you wonderful therapists at Elite, but “Dan, you the man!”

I have received PT at Elite Physical Therapy for two courses of therapy. Rachel G. is my therapist -I have received superb therapy through Elite and Rachel's care. She listens to my concerns and provides appropriate therapy. I have a program set up to continue with the exercises at home which is key to recovery, I believe.

Very friendly staff. Courtney was my therapist and she was excellent. I would highly recommend this place.

I am a rock climber, and climbers are notorious for getting A LOT of injuries. This time it was my neck and left shoulder/lat. I had injured it 6 months prior and was hesitant to go back to PT (after being there 6 months prior for hip issues). I went to see Michelle at Elite Physical Therapy and I could NOT be more impressed with her recovery plan for me.Being a climber, I wanted my recovery to be centered around the body movements of a climber. I told this to Michelle and she just went to work. We set up a plan that would incorporate the same movements a climber executes to build strength in the areas I was experiencing so much pain in. In less than two months my neck and shoulder were completely recovered, and I was climbing stronger than I ever have.She was EXTREMELY flexible with my schedule, regularly squeezing me in if I wanted to come in for an appointment an hour or so early, very accomodating to my preferred recovery method, and an amazing PT specialist.Everyone at Elite was so helpful, fun, warm, and welcoming. From Kayla at the front desk, to Letty (who filled in for Michelle on days she couldn't make it) to Courtney who was assisting Michelle as a student. If you go to any of the locations, MAKE IT GOVERNOR STREET! You won't be disappointed, I promise!

I started receiving dry needling treatment from Letty at Elite a little bit over a year ago. I have had experience with two or three offices in Rhode Island and offices in Europe for a variety of injuries over the years requiring both physical therapy and dry needling. The Elite office on Governor is spacious, pleasant, and well aired. I have received the most professional service in this office whether for appointment taking/reminder or for treatment per say. It has been a bit tricky to find reliable dry needling caregiver because not all physical therapist offices are transparent about the level of certification of their associates. This is not the case of Elite. Letty, in fact, has been one of the most professional, well trained, and attentive physical therapists I have worked with. My medical condition has improved immediately and increasingly thanks to her services and she has been able to impact injuries as they occur. My only regret is that dry needling is not yet considered "real medical treatment" in RI because it works.

I've had to have a few rounds of physical therapy due to on going hip issues & surgery. Elite Physical Therapy is a wonderful facility and has helped me throughout the course of my rehab. Everyone from the front desk to the PTs are always positive and helpful. I would definitely recommend Elite Physical Therapy to my friends and family!

I saw Travis for treatment of a slip disc, and associated nerve and muscle pain. He was competent, helpful, and friendly. The staff was great about scheduling and rescheduling as needed. Most importantly, Travis' treatment was effective. We had a goal set of reducing my brutally high pain levels in time for my wedding. Travis responded well to my feedback, and helped my achieve my goal, even giving me follow up so that I did not re-injure during my honeymoon.

Elite physical Therapy provides top notch service. Their therapist work one on one with patients and stay with the same patient through the entire recovery. The staff is very friendly and make you feel like part of a large family. I had Travis as my therapist and highly recommend him! Not only did he provide me with great therapy he also went beyond the call to help me move out when I was unable to do it myself. You would be doing a disservice to choose any other phyical thearpy company in providence other than Elite!!!
