Well, first of all their web site advertises a free consultation, which is vague. It needs to clarify this only works if you *don't* already have a prescription for physical therapy and feel like driving across town to chat for 15 minutes without being thoroughly looked at. Then you go back to your doctor and request PT and then back to Crouse. I don't know of many people who have that much patience to run back and forth hence "free"! Oh wait, then there's gas money lost, too. Gee. I've been to quite a few physical therapists and I would rate Crouse Rehab as fairly middle of the road. If you have a straight forward sports type injury and aren't in much pain, then this place would be fine. The treatment is standard resistance band type exercises which you learn to do on your own. I actually told Crouse at the evaluation of prior experiences with bands which caused a lot of pain. Five minutes later out comes a band, which gave me the impression she either a) wasn't listening or b) didn't know of another way to treat me. Needless to say, I was not impressed and did not return. If you need nerve rehab or neuromuscular re-education, then I highly recommend going to a certified manual pt, not just someone who casually mentions it on their web site. Side note: I've noticed, generally, the younger pts are exposed to newer techniques where the "no pain no gain" concept is rendered obsolete.
