"I came to Sarah at Thomas Physical Therapy complaining of severe chest pain from seat belt trauma associated with a car accident. I choose Thomas because they had helped me with persistent neck pain about two years earlier. They fixed the problem and left me with a few simple exercises which I continue to use today to keep the neck issue from recurring. This new trauma was more severe. Although there were no broken bones I was unable to push, lift or turn without a lot of chest pain. Just getting in and out of bed was an ordeal and if I had a sudden sneeze it took a minute or so to recover. I was anxious to accelerate the healing process so I could get back to playing racquetball and golf. Over a two to three week period Sarah was able to break down some chest expanding exercises into small manageable challenges that I was able to handle and gradually make progress in returning to normal. She also noted some balance issues affecting my agility on the racquetball court and addressed those as part of my overall exercise and improvement program. I know if I stick to the home exercise program she has prescribed I will continue to enjoy a more flexible and pain free quality of life. I would recommend Thomas Physical Therapy for anyone wanting to relieve pain from physical activity or to learn exercises and techniques to prevent it form occurring in the first place."

"After having issues with balance for quite a while, falling in a parking lot and nearly run over by a car, I decided that it was time to do something to help correct the situation. My first attempt at finding some therapy was a real downer. I was given very little direction, put on a machine and the instructor would go on to another client. After five visits I decided to move on, there had to be a better way. A friend of mine mentioned that she had gone to Thomas Physical Therapy and was very pleased. I called, made an appointment and went. WOW! As they say, first impressions are the best and that is exactly what I received. Very clean! I was greeted by Suzanne with a big smile and taken by her to my private room. My therapist, Cheryl, came in to greet me and sat with me for over an hour listening to my concerns. I have been there for a few months now and I am making great strides. Cheryl makes my sessions fun and her expressions, like walk like a warrior or stand tall like the Statue of Liberty cracks me up. Before I leave, I am given a detailed print out of the exercises I am taught that day. I have learned that exercise does not have to be an assigned time, but can be worked in to my daily routines. Thankful for finding Thomas'"

"There is only ONE place in Volusia County to go for physical therapy...THOMAS! If you have ever been to another clinic, you know there is no comparison. Thomas excells in their therapists, the therapists' education and experience and CARING. If you want to get rid of your pain almost painlessly; if you want to be treated like you are loved family; if you want healing advice; get yourself to Thomas Orthopedic and Sports. Enough said!"

"They are the best! Went to one physical therapy group & very disappointed. In the six times that I went, I was given four different trainers with no record of what was done on previous visits. At Thomas’s I have requested same trainer and each time I go I am instructed in a timely and professional manner. As each workout is introduced, I am given a printed copy of previous & new workouts for my records. The facility is immaculate, staff is friendly & knowledgeable. "

"I'm an occupational therapist, and have worked closely with many physical therapists in hospital settings. I know what good treatment should look like. All of the therapists at Thomas Physical Therapy are the real deal. Their technique is excellent and their help and encouragement to follow through at home are very well thought out. If you need physical therapy, you can't do better!"

"I have been coming to Thomas Physical Therapy for many years for a variety of issues. I have had rehabilitation for a total knee replacement, bad back and most recently a hip replacement. The entire staff is so encouraging and effective in their treatment. I am back doing things I never thought I would be able to do again. They are the best!"

"From Tina-Marie and her office staff to Ms. Thomas and Ms. Wynn, Thomas Physical Therapy was quite honestly a gem of a find and the evening was very unexpected. Due to a recent knee injury I signed up for one of the free informational seminars the offer to the public. In all honesty I went expecting to get some basic information and then be sold for an hour on their services. As the seminar began I realized very quickly that this would not be the case! The seminar was led by Sarah Thomas one of the owners / pt and from the moment of first introductions and getting to know the group, you could feel the family feel of this therapy office. The session was extremely informative, informal, and comfortable to be in. Ms. Thomas addressed the group and asked about each of our injuries and concerns and then took the time to tailor her presentation on the ailments we were each feeling. She worked with different people from the group all the while showing the rest of us the movements and providing suggestions on how these injuries and ailments could be strengthened with different types of therapies. After an hour and half of extremely well presented information and engagement the group was smiling and happy and many of us talking among one another were very pleased. It truly was just an information session and it is obvious from the time and care that Ms. Thomas took that she TRULY cares about what she does to help others! I will definitely be back not only as a guest of another seminar but hopefully a new client as well!"

"I was in a horrific car crash that lead to emergency bilateral ORIF surgery on my knees and femurs. When I started with Cheryl I had very little ability to bend my knees and got around in a wheelchair 3 months later my knee flection has improved greatly and I am now able to walk with a cane. I’m so grateful of the effort and individual attention I receive here. Im very confident with more sessions I will be walking without any assistive devices and live life as I did before my accident "

"I was at the Knee workshop tonight, 1/9/2020 at 5:30 PM. It was very informative and very encouraging to know there are other ideas for people who suffer from pain in a chronic situation besides have to be on medication, injections and surgery. People want to be rid of their chronic pain and chronic conditions. It is nice to know there are other options. The workshop is free and it is very informative. "

"I have been a patient of Randy's for the past 3 winters with two knee issues and now a neck issue. He is the most gifted therapist I have had the pleasure to work with and has relieved my pain as well as saved me from any surgery. Randy genuinely cares about his patients. I don't dread going to my sessions as I know I will be better!! My biggest concern is that I never want him to RETIRE!!"

"Very knowledgable and caring. Don't assume that your pain is so intense that surgery is the only option. I have learned that therapy takes patience, Randy and Sarah care about your recovery, have the knowledge and skill to treat your injury and aid in recovery without a surgical option. Even without a surgical threat, corrections of long term structural disorders can aid in a more pain free lifestyle. "

"These are my first line “go-to” health care practitioners who understand the anatomy, alignment, and function of the musculoskeletal system and connective tissues. They use a very thorough investigative hands-on method of physical therapy that diagnoses and then treats all of our sports injuries, postural imbalances, and alignment problems. Sarah, Randy, and Cheryl have helped me and my sporty family with every acute injury and chronic musculoskeletal imbalance over the past fifteen years and we owe them a debt of gratitude for their positively brilliant treatment and their brilliantly positive friendship!"

"I have been going to Thomas Physical Therapy for physical conditions that range from weakness to pre- and post- operative therapy. I have worked with Randy, Sarah and Cheryl over the years and each is an expert who works to improve my physical conditions with specifically tailored exercises that have helped me become stronger over the years. But, perhaps as important at least to me is the the fact that each one cares about their patients. It seems as if you are the only person they work with that day. Why only five stars?"

"Before treatment at Thomas Physical Therapy: I could only turn my head ½ to the right. After one session of deep tissue massage, I can turn it all the way to my shoulder. I could not drive a car due to level 8 knee pain and instability. I am driving again! I could barely walk and tottered from side in side with knee and ankle pain at level 8. I now walk like a normal person with occasional level 1-2 pain. I had to sleep in a recliner due to level 8 back pain. I can now sleep in bed all night and only experience a little stiffness in the morning, which dissipates with one of the PT exercises. After only 5 months of seeing Randy once a week, I can do a little gardening again. For the first time in 6 years, since my hip replacements, I can put socks on my feet without using a sock helper. My level 8 shoulder pain is gone now that I no longer have to use my arms to push myself up out of chairs. I can even get up from low toilets with no problem. I no longer have to use the handicapped stall. I could not straighten my right leg. There was a 1” gap under my knee above the table. I had to keep a pillow under that knee. After a few deep massage sessions, I can now straighten that leg completely and no longer need a pillow under it. After 2 weeks of treatment by Randy, my shoulder bursitis pain was 90% alleviated and my mobility improved to 90% without a cortisone shot or pain meds. I am more limber and physically stable. I am no longer afraid of falling while standing or walking. My pains are 95% gone. I can pick up things off the floor again! I feel like a new person! "

"I could not believe how much better I felt after my FIRST appointment with Sarah Thomas. The soft tissue massage and basic exercises provided great relief immediately. I learned that my knee, hip and thigh pain wasn't from my hip - it was from by back. I FEEL YOUNG AGAIN!"
