"...My wife was in a great deal of pain from degenerative disks in the lower back and was was diagnosed from an MRI as an arthritic cyst impinging on her sciatic nerve. Matt worked with my wife for a period of several weeks, introducing her to a progressive series of exercises that have successfully relieved her symtpoms. As she has said many times, 'he gave my my life back'.

"As recent patients of Summit Physical Therapy, my husband and I commend your employee, Matt Lynch, for the care he provided to each of us. Matt was patient, kind and professional. he was also exceptionally knowledgable and confident - both of which helped motivate us toward recovery. We appreciate the time he took to ensure we were on the right track and that we had the tools we needed once our visits were concluded. Matt is an asset to your company. Although we hope to not need your services again, we would be certain to turn to him again if we ever should!"
