Josh is helping me tremendously to strenthen my core muscles, balance and equilibrium. I look forward to my weekly sessions with Jos .Thomas, Apr 04
Working with Josh has allowed me to overcome some significant limitations imposed by old injuries. I've gained a tremendous amount of mobility, stability, and most importantly, the confidence to push myself physically.Joshua, May 16
I've worked with Josh for a while now and this is the first time with Movement X! He is a phenomenal physical therapist and knows how to assess, manipulate, and overall get the issues resolved! Highly recommend him for any physical therapy and dry needling needs!!!Samer, Jul 18
Continuing to make significant gains in flexibility, particularly with regard to extension. Amazing!Joshua, Aug 01
Josh is a true healer above and beyond his credible knowledge and professional practice. Thanks for all your help, Josh!Roya, May 21
An hour with Josh twice a week is like Superman changing clothes in a phone booth (if there are such things around any more). Not only does he physically turn my 86-year-old body into a 70-year-old youngster but his motivational and confidence building techniques are invaluable mental health additions. Can’t wait for my next session.Tom, Jun 18
Five stars or more for the session with Josh. Josh was my PT from 2013-2014 when I was recovering from a devastating knee injury. His care, passion, and ultimately the results I had working with him were far above what I was expecting. If it weren't for Josh's efforts, I would not have been back to doing what I love--being active whether it's in soccer, running, or working out. I cannot recommend him strongly enough. He went out of his way to book this session with me following another (minor) knee injury. As expected, I left confident and with a plan of action to get back to 100%.Harrison, Mar 08
Josh has gone way beyond the call of duty in evaluating me, providing me with a detailed exercise program, making sure I understand each exercise and keeping me accountable. Unfortunately the system is not allowing me to add a rating, but I'd give Josh 10 out of 5! He is awesome in every respect!Deanna, Mar 23
