I was shopping for a physical therapist when I came across the reviews for this place. So I gave it a try and I must say that everyone was right. I lucked up and had the delight of speaking with... Tonya (the therapist)personally to schedule my appointment and i liked her personality right away. I felt like I was talking with an old friend. At that point i was very excited to start and I was even more impressed when I got there. Her personality is so positive and contagious. She was able to explain my diagnosis to me better than my doctor could and I left with a better since of understanding of what my injury was and what steps I needed to take to get better. I never write reviews but I felt so great from my experience there that I wanted everyone else to know. FYI, I felt immediate results after just one visit.VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
I loved it there. I am in agreement with all the positive comments I've read. Tonya is a super therapist and she has a great bedside manner. She went out of her way to stay in contact with my doctor... on her own time to assure continuity of care. She truly cares about your recovery and treats you like a long time friend. I have been discharged for a while but we still keep in contact and she makes sure I'm am still Ok. I can't say that about other therapists I've met.VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
Jerry is not there anymore and it is not worth the drive. I waited in the waiting room for ever. Will let you know more later.
Jerry worked hard to help me with my back problems and together we had great results. There is a real family like atmosphere at Spine and Sport and that makes the appointments much more enjoyable. I highly recommend these guys!
After being helped earlier in the year with a shoulder injury by Jerry and his staff,(that would be Joan) I knew exactly where to go when my teenage daughter suffered a badly sprained ankle while playing soccer. Jerry had her on the mend quickly and worked well with her resistance to follow through. What struck me most was her comment about therapy. She told me that she liked going to therapy because they didn't rush and while she was there life slowed down to a normal pace (something she doesn't get often at this point in her life). She also liked the atmosphere Jerry creates while he works with everyone. This perspective shared by a teenager speaks volumes. The scope of problems that Jerry specializes in is extensive and his approach to therapy is the highest possible level of no-nonsense restoration with a dose of education to lessen the risk of reinjury. Jerry is a master at motivating even the most resistant individuals to own thier recovery. Everyone benefits from his extensive training in other therapies he uses to enhance the healing process. We are fortunate to have a therapist of this caliber in our area.
I am an active person and I have two chronic acute quad tears that I've been dealing with for over a year. I finally saw an osteopath who suggested seeing Jerry. In just a few visits, my symptoms have almost disappeared and under Jerry's watchful eye, I hope to slowly move from PT back into my rigorous yoga practice. I've been to physical therapy for other injuries, but this place is really a cut above the rest. I'm a chiropractic student and I can appreciate the amt of time Jerry takes to get to know the patients, including their routines and symptoms. He works with some amazing techniques, such as unified healing therapy, heat, massage and strength training to get you back on your feet and help you cultivate an amazing mind/body awareness. I'd suggest trying out this place above all others.
The first week of January I woke up unable to walk. Somehow I injured my back. Of course, I ignored the symptoms as we all do. I thought it was nothing, until the morning I was in so much pain I had to take baby steps. The orthopedic surgeon suggested physical therapy. I met an amazing physical therapist at Spine & Sport, Jerry Ruff, at the Woodstock location. The first week of January 2008 I wanted to have back surgery. After only three weeks of working with Jerry at Sport Spine, I was able to walk around and stand for longer periods of time. The back pain had diminished considerably. By Feb. 16th I walked through the Atlanta Airport pain free and had a wonderful time in the PA area. I would highly recommend Jerry. He is personable as well as knowledgeable. SoSoSo
I injured my lower back changing my wife's flat tire. I was living with the daily pain until I couldn't take it anymore. I was referred to Spine & Sport and Jerry helped me get my normal life back. I was very impressed with Jerry's knowledge/skill and ability not only to help me get back to normal but also stay that way in the future. Thanks to Jerry I am pain free. Jerry takes great interest in each patient's situation and he is not happy until that patient is on the road to recovery. I would strongly recommend anyone to Spine & Sport.
Jerry and Staff are wonderful, I went in post surgical for fractured right upper humerus. At that time I had virtually no use of the right arm. Jerry worked diligently with me, even tolerating my threats to hit him. Jerry nade the hard work fun! Due to Jerry's expertise, I can do almost everything I need to with my right arm. Jerry has give me the confidence I need to know that I will be back 100%.
Jerry Ruff and staff are great, mainly they are genuine people who really care about the patient. I have had seven years of pain, spent thousands of dollars, and was willing to live with the pain, until I gave spine and sport a chance. In two months I was cured from 7 years of pain. He even called to check on me personally how many doctors do that, not many. I am so thankful to Jerry and staff, now I have my life back I can run again and do many other activities. Thanks Guys.
Jerry and his staff are awesome. I have been to doctor after doctor, trying to figure out what is wrong with my hip, and I couldn't really get an answer. I finally saw Jerry at Spine and sport, and I feel a whole lot better. I learned a lot of new exercises and stretches that I can incorporate in to my normal work. Plus, Jerry spends a lot of time with everyone. I never feel like I am rushed. I would recommend this to any one.
