THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! I cannot thank you enough for the great care I received at Physical Therapy Center of Chesapeake. I had my total knee replacement on January 10, 2018 and I was released as fully recovered on April 2018. I attribute a great deal of that success to the outstanding quality of care I received at PTC. The staff works so well together as a team, helping you yet keeping others moving thru their workout routines at the same time. It starts with their smiles and warm greetings when you enter. It shouts, “Welcome Back.” It continues with their knowledge of the science of your anatomy and is combined with the art of teaching you what to do and how to do it properly. They take time to explain everything they are doing and why. Does it hurt? At times, you bet but their compassion helps you get it done and you know it is for your benefit in the long run. I hope you do not need the services of a physical therapist, but if you do, they should be at the top of your list. Thanks again. YOU’RE THE BEST!

Ken and his team are the best. They have helped put me back on my feet after surgeries and accidents over the years. They’ve been sympathetic and firm – always taking time to explain and encourage. I feel lucky to have found them.

Dawn has designed a super workout for me between regular therapy and I expect to keep coming back for many years to come. I plan to master those hurdles within the next year or so!!

I want to commend Ken and his staff at Physical Therapy Center of Chesapeake.

Something unique about this practice is that they operate independently of any of the orthopedic physicians or centers. I was referred to them by a friend.

Previously, I have had physical therapy at other practices. It was fine. What is so very different about Physical Therapy Center of Chesapeake is the personal interest and care that I have received. I genuinely feel like they want to know me as a person not just as an injured, arthritic joint. This holistic approach makes me feel encouraged and hopeful about regaining the full use of my shoulder. It also makes me much more willing to share how the injury is affecting my daily activities. They have given me practical suggestions about how to continue with one of my favorite activities, water aerobics, without compromising my recovery. My treatment plan is continually amended to reflect how I am feeling. I feel like a full partner in this process.

I want to thank you for providing such excellent care and assistance with my rehabilitation. The time I spent working on the strengthening exercises and understanding the way the muscles and tendons work together has been a tremendous help with my recovery. I cannot say enough good things about the level of personal care and individual attention I received.

When I had my surgery and was anticipating physical therapy, I knew there was no other place I wanted to be than your facility. The warm friendly atmosphere makes your center a place to look forward to instead of therapy being something to dread. You guys are the best! When I was weak, you supported me. When I was confused, you informed me. When I was afraid, you encouraged me. When I thought I couldn’t do it, you urged me. You all make a great team! I really don’t know how I could have done it without you!

Thank you so much for all your help with my recovery after my skiing accident. I am pleased to report that my knee is functioning at 100% with complete range of motion of mobility and strength. I know this amazing recovery is due almost entirely to you and your staff. All of you were helpful, instructional, and encouraging throughout the entire process. The warm atmosphere made physical therapy something that I looked forward too, instead of something that I dreaded. I willingly drove past many other physical therapy centers that were much closer to my home or work just to be able to come to PT Center of Chesapeake.


Physical Therapy Center of Chesapeake has reinvented the wheel! Ken and Bonnie have created an environment that makes an unsure time a rewarding experience in an atmosphere of fun and encouragement. I made the right choice in trusting Ken, Bonnie, Dawn and staff to help me through multiple joint replacements. I can freely recommend you do the same and they will lead you to your recovery. I have been amazed with the results.

Ken, just a note to thank you for the excellent care you and your fine staff have provided to me since June of 2013 (1st Total Knee Replacement). I have been through 2 Total Knee replacements Rehabilitation Treatment sessions with you. The most recent was February 2015. The regimen you established for 3-a-week sessions worked great. The friendly, yet firm, atmosphere ensured a “cut no slack” approach to my recovery. Once I was finished with my “official” rehab, you offered a month-to-month self-use program for me to work out as much as I feel like using your facilities (nominal fee). I continue that to this day. The (cheers-where everybody knows your name) daily greetings from everyone there, staff and patients, really makes sweating a pleasure (almost!) I could not imagine anywhere else to go when needing a “tune-up”.

I tore my ACL in a skiing accident at the age of 51, and had to wait to have surgery for several months. One thing I needed to do before surgery was get full range of motion back in my knee. When I started working with Ken, I could only move my leg to 90 degrees. He not only gave me some different and more helpful exercises, but at the end of each session he and his staff stretched and manipulated my knee so that within a short amount of time I had full range of motion, and my knee and leg muscles were stronger and ready for surgery. While it might have been painful while they were doing this, it actually felt much better and I could move better by the end of my session. After surgery, the recovery process went so smoothly and I felt like I made a pretty speedy recovery. Ken and his staff again took super good care of me, and explained everything that I would be doing and need to do in order to recover fully.
