“Jen did a fantastic job getting my back discomfort into a manageable condition. I came in with a lot of pain and left feeling much much better!” –Ken K.
“Ms. Roberts is a the top of the game; her exercises have helped me phenomenally!” – Charles D
“My appointment with Dr. Leigh was amazing. She relieved my pain immediately, gave me hope and direction and very specific exercises. After many years of suffering I feel I am on track.” -Christy B
“Dr. Roberts is a great physical therapist. I was impressed by her knowledge of her field, as well as her evident intelligence and excellent communication skills. She was did a great job evaluating my condition, identifying my needs, and not only showing me the right exercises to do, but also helping me understand the principles behind them so I could continue developing on my own. Our conversations felt like a true dialog. Some of my particular needs were less common, and I really appreciated the time she took to understand them and to work with me to develop an individualized treatment program just for me. Most importantly, it worked, and I am enjoying freedom from pain and a better understanding of my own body.” -Elliott D.
“It’s been nearly seven years since our first visit to Leigh, and we will never go to anyone else. Whenever a dance injury has occurred, she has made rapid and accurate assessments of my daughter’s condition, quickly setting her on a course to complete recovery.” -Pamela (mother of dancer age 17)
“I was a patient of Dr. Roberts during June and July 2012 during which she provided physical therapy services I needed as a result of a serious automobile accident a few months before. Dr. Roberts is not only an exceptional therapist who is adept at diagnosing what physical limitations I was dealing with, but also provided the type of hands-on treatment I needed to get me well again to resume normal activities. She is obviously concerned about her patients’ well-being from her caring attitude. Moreover, she transforms those concerns with a wide variety of techniques and exercises I found extremely useful. I have been to other physical therapists in the past, but none come close to the quality of care Dr. Roberts provides. I would recommend her, without question, to anyone who needs these types of services.” -Ken Knouse
“I really appreciate Leigh’s personalized approach. She developed a personalized physical therapy plan for our teenage dancer by first understanding Katie’s goals and lifestyle; then assessing her physical strengths and weaknesses. Leigh also took the time to fully investigate our Doctor’s diagnosis and encouraged us to obtain further medical workup which undoubtedly prevented further injury.” -Susan T. (mother of dancer age 14)
“Leigh loosened my left hip which became tight as a secondary effect of the pinched nerve (in my back). Leigh taught me how to walk to minimize strain on my back. Leigh taught me additional stretches and exercises and corrected errors in my form while performing exercises for my core muscles…But Leigh helped me get most of my old life back. …Leigh showed the ability and interest to find the best treatment for me. I highly recommend Leigh’s services.” – Brian B. (recreational cyclist)
“From the beginning, I found Leigh to be quickly available and flexible with appointment times and lengths. As we went along, if we needed to go for 1 ½ hours, we did. If we needed a shorter appointment, we did that. Leigh was able to show me a series of home exercises, specific to my needs, that I could do with simple equipment – the exercise ball, therabands, a Styrofoam roller. I was empowered by Leigh actively listening to my needs and by giving me the right exercises. Both of those things contributed hugely to my motivation and my recovery.” -Kimberly B
“I have experienced increased sensory loss and activity induced fatigue in my legs for the past 20 years. In 2002, I was formally diagnosed with a condition called Hereditary Spastic Paraparesis. I was informed that the symptoms of this condition would worsen with each passing year. The challenge for me, after receiving this diagnosis, was facing the reality that I would have to cope with a chronic, debilitating condition while functioning day to day and trying to live a normal life. Two years then went by and…I was losing my battle to maintain strength, balance and mobility…
In the Fall of 2004, I had a consultation with Leigh Roberts. Through Pilates and an other exercises, Leigh has shown me how I can regain some of strength, balance and mobility that I have lost. She has helped me in develop an exercise routine that I would have never thought I could have been able to do a year ago. Leigh has the ability to analyze how this condition affects my ability to walk. She then is able to recommend a remedy, through exercise, to help correct the deficiency of movement.
Most importantly, through her support and physical therapy, I now have renewed outlook on life and confidence in facing the challenge living daily with a chronic condition.” – Steven G.
“I started seeing Leigh Roberts in August 2006. I liked her professionalism and likeable demeanor immediately. Leigh gave me a thorough evaluation/assessment and taught me how to better cope with my chronic lower back pain and numbness. She showed me many types of exercises, administered deep muscle massage and taught me ways to stand and walk to ease discomfort. Leigh has helped me gain confidence in myself by teaching me different exercise techniques including some “weight bearing” ones that aide in helping my osteopenia. After working with Leigh, I am finally returning to my usual daily routine of walking. I have gained confidence that I will not injure myself by exercising and feel much better. Leigh is an extremely qualified individual, and I highly recommend her services.” – Janice L.
“I am a breast cancer patient and took the drug Femara. It caused some joint pain and soft tissue issues. As a result of the PT with Leigh Roberts, I was able to continue my normal lifestyle—working full time, traveling, etc…I highly recommend L A R Physical Therapy” -Mary Ann H.
