"Without Orion's insightful therapeutic guidance, I would most likely still be limping around in pain after developing an overuse injury at the beginning of the year from running and triathlon.  Instead, I was able to complete a half-Iron distance triathlon this summer thanks to Orion and Neighborhood PT! If that isn't a testament to the individual attention you will receive here, I don't know what is. Thanks so much, Orion!!!"
