"I can walk much better, I can mostly take a shower independently, I can get in and out of bed much easier, and I'm moving much better than I ever imagined. I recovered movements that I've lost. I'm very pleased with the work Arthur has done with me. He has a great, friendly attitude, knows his stuff, and he works hard. And I've made a lot of progress. So I'm very thankful that I have such a good therapist."

“My husband, the author of many books and a professional violinist, had spinal stenosis, a history of strokes, vision,  and hearing loss.  Arthur worked with him at our home showing him exercises that built up his endurance and improved his balance. Arthur was so patient with him.  He listened to my husband's life stories, of which— there were many—while getting the hard work done.  No easy task. My husband and I both looked forward to Arthur's visits, and not only because we could see physical improvements. Arthur was reliable, intelligent, and sensitive to our situation.”

"Working with Joseph for the last couple of years has been a pleasure.  He is very professional, caring and conscientious. He used creative methods like salsa dancing and zumba to help me improve my balance and walking. I loved working with Joseph and looked forward to his sessions every week. He has been one of the best therapists I've ever had."

"Dr. Joseph is the BEST! I've had pain due to spinal stenosis for many years. He taught me different stretches and exercises to help me minimize my pain. I am able to walk much better as well as doing work around the home. I highly recommend Dr. Joseph to everyone."
