“Two years ago I underwent hip replacement surgery, I was fortunate that a friend in the medical field highly recommended NewSport Physical Therapy. The attention to details…exercises, stretches and choices in footwear etc was A+. Two years later, I’m back for the second hip replacement. I will be forever grateful for the wonderful care I’ve received from Claudia and her NewSport TEAM…”
“I wish I could give 11 stars (spinal tap joke). I go to Newsport Therapy whenever I have a sports-related injury, and they help fix me (twice for back, both shoulders and my triceps). At one point in my life, I thought I could never surf or run again, and was selling all my surf boards. Now I surf every day, and run every day. I’ve worked a lot with Michelle and Hanna. Trust in Newsport!”
“I had a total hip replacement about a year ago. After the operation I had zero zero range of motion. After going to New-sport 10 different times, I was brand new. Beware, they make you work at getting better. You’ll be super happy with all the staff, and for sure the results.”
