As the result of an automobile accident I ended up with a wrenched left shoulder, back and neck. Terri was among the approved therapists under my health care system. Her warm, enthusiastic, positive approach and professional treatment over six sessionss provided the relief I sorely needed. She and her welcoming staff have my highest recommendation.

A caring and thoughtful clinic, where the owner and team have excellent diagnosis skills and treatments. This is a quiet clinic, with private treatment rooms and they are maniacal about cleaning, even before COVID.... I highly recommend all the therapists and exercise specialists at Atala...

I have needed physical therapy several times over the past few years. Atala Physical Therapy is by far the best. They have excellent customer service and they are the very best at working with me to go over what I need to do to get back into a pain-free life. I highly recommend Terri, Illsong, and everyone there.

I have had such a great experience at Atala Physical Therapy! After suffering with right hip pain when I was sleeping on my ride side for a year I finally decided to seek help and was SO fortunate to find Terri! She was so good at looking at the big picture and me as a whole and what could be contributing to my problem. She made recommendations I was able to implement right away that made a positive difference. She is always timely, never rushed, also personable, professional and truly caring! Jason was wonderful with assisting me with exercises and the entire office has a very good vibe! If you are having chronic pain or orthopedic problems I would definitely go and see Terri! I can't thank their team enough!
