Patient Raves

Todd Ziele "To Advanced Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine, Thanks for helping me get the hop back in my step."
Todd Ziele, Former NY Mets Infielder

"Hey guys. The back is actually feeling the best it has felt in a few years now. I've been able to cut down the pain medications by a significant amount, and I now only take them every once in a while. I still keep a pretty good eye on it, and still do the exercises I learned with you. Needless to say, but I wouldn't be where I am with my back without your help and your team. Cody and a model of the spine I never got to thank you properly. Thanks for all the time and effort you took, and if my back ever begins to slide back again (hopefully not), you will be the first I call. Thanks for everything!"
• NCAA Baseball player

"Eric, Things are holding up quite well as far as my back goes. I cannot thank you enough for the joy that you have brought me. Being able to run around, to surf, to hit, to bike, and to simply play with my family were things I once took for granted. Yet, I now cherish and relish in them. I am grateful and thankful each day for being capable of such feats and for meeting you; truly, you have had quite the impact on my life, more than you know. Thanks for your help!!"

Erik Kramer "Advanced PT, Thanks for helping me keep my golf game back on track. Keep up the great work!"
Erik Kramer, Former NFL Quarterback, Chicago Bears

"Hey Cody it's me! Just wanted to let you know that I just played my first game in about 3 months, and I feel great thanks to you. Thanks for everything I appreciate it all a ton! Hope everyone is doing well."

I walked into the care of Dr. Cody Jones seeking relief from chronic calf pain. I walked out with relief from all of my aches and pains and a far better understanding of how to prevent injuries from recurring. Cody evaluated my walk, my posture, and my spine and provided me with a running narrative of what he was doing, why he was doing it, why it was important. He then provided a detailed treatment plan which started immediately.

Cody is an excellent therapist concerned with healing not only the primary injury but the whole body. I was impressed with his treatment approach and the detailed explanations that he provided throughout the process. I recommend Cody to anyone in need of physical therapy and am sure that you will come away fully recovered and with a more thorough understanding of your body.

"Eric, I owe you all a great big THANK YOU for your knowledge, care and support in my quest for a Tevis completion. Tevis is the 100-mile endurance horse race from Lake Tahoe to Auburn, CA. As you all know, I was very concerned about the fracture in my shoulder and worried that I might not be able to get on and off the horse throughout the race. Well, I didn't need to worry because we did very well. Out of 187 starters, we finished in 33rd place! I am very proud of my horse and how well he took care of me through the 100+ degree canyons, the 500 foot cliffs ridden in the dark, the swinging bridges we rode across and all the other hazards we encountered. Our riding time was 20 hours and 15 minutes and both the horse and I are recovered already. So thank you for all the help you gave me and I sure am a big believer in PRP! Gratefully yours,
Lisa, horse trainer

I have had chronic back pain my whole life. Because of this I have tried endless types of treatment. So when my wife suggested that I see Dr. Cody Jones, I was skeptical and reluctant. We had heard rave reviews about Cody so I decided to give physical therapy one last try.

No simple collection of adjectives can describe how appreciative and enthusiastic I am with the treatment I have received from Cody Jones. He spends quality time with me on every visit. He carefully finds out what my situation is and adjusts his treatment accordingly. No two visits are ever the same. I also like that he has empowered me by giving me simple, precise and effective exercises that I do at home on a consistent basis which has really strengthened my body and helped stabilize my back. Simply put, Cody Jones is the best and I am ever grateful for his help.
