"I highly recommend North Hill Physical Therapy. Joel and Blake are great they knew exactly the correct type of treatment for my condition. The whole staff are all caring, kind, funny and professional. They do check and double check to make sure everything is going well. The spirt in this place is very uplifting and when your in pain or healing soreness, this type of environment is crucial for encouraging recovery. "

"I had a total knee replacement at the end of May and graduated today from therapy. The team there is fantastic, Joel and Blake are so knowledgeable, and continually worked with my therapists to keep me challenged and improving. Natalie was my primary therapist, along with Anna also sometimes. They both were constantly praising and encouraging me thru therapy, even on days when I was feeling discouraged. I can now walk a mile without stopping, go up and down stairs, and overall doing great. Thank you to North Hill Therapy."

"I had a bulging disc in my neck and was in excruciating pain when I began treatment. Joel and his staff were extremely knowledgable about my condition, optimistic about my recovery, and capitalized on all of the various treatments that worked and allowed me to avoid surgery. Staff is super friendly, organized, and treated me with the utmost respect. Because of the excellent care and service I received, I recommended that my husband start treatment there for a tennis elbow. He was equally pleased with the level of care and the superior treatment by staff. I would recommend North Hill for PT without hesitation and with the highest endorsement."

"In the past few years, both my wife and I have had surgery that required rehab. I was first and chose North Hill based on one recommendation and the location. I'm really glad I did. My rehab went well, the staff was friendly and knew their business. I was almost sad when I "graduated". I missed the regular interaction with the crew. A couple years later when my wife had surgery and needed professional rehab help, there was no question where she would go. Her experience was excellent too. While we've successfully rehabbed our new and repaired joints, another friend, based on our recommendation, is a regular at the clinic right now. He recently thanked me for the tip and is pleased with his experience too. It's never fun but if you need rehab, I can comfortably North Hill Physical Therapy. Nice folks who know their stuff. "

"I injured my back in December last year and I had heard North Hill Physical Therapy was a good choice for getting back on my feet again, so after about 3 months a several sessions a week I'm hear to tell you my back is okay. Those muscles are strengthened and my core is ready for summer activities. The staff that Joel has are friendly, knowledgeable, helpful people along this journey back getting back into the game. Yes, I give them 5 Stars, and you will not be disappointed if you follow their program, make your appointments and exercise and ice as instructed. It worked for me!"

"Just finished up PT with Dr. Lewis and staff. Dr. Lewis met with me the 1st time and went over thoroughly what I was experiencing and recommended treatment. I started the exercises and 5 weeks later I am so much better! All of the office staff are caring and patient. From the time I walked into the office for my weekly visits, to the time I left, I felt like everyone cared. I would highly recommend Dr. Lewis and his staff and I would definitely go back to him."

"I can't believe how well this program is working! After months of pain that really limited my daily activities and looking into possibility of surgery - my doctor and I decided I would try Physical Therapy. The treatment and exercises tailored for me by the staff provided pain relief in just a few Sessions. I am learning how to manage and improve my body strength and positioning. I am continuing to improve with periods of total pain relief. Learning some truly valuable things to stay strong and active.. I am 72! Never too late to learn!!! "

"Went to PT due to surgery on my left knee, an osteotomy and a partial knee replacement. Joel, Chris, and Kristen were more than great, they were fabulous! I couldn't bear weight for over 6 weeks and they helped me to become stronger. They were kind and patient with me as I struggled to move again. They taught me how to use my crutches, then cane and now I am walking on my own. I was truly a mess and they gave me confidence that I could do things again. I love these guys and recommend them to everyone I talk to. They really changed my life!"

"The NHPT folks put Humpty Dumpty back together again. After a long period of inactivity, I had fluid and calcium drained from my shoulder, and my shoulder needed its flexibility and strength restored. The exercises NHPT gave me, and the improvement they made in my posture with a very simple bit of guidance, have done exactly what was needed. Thanks to their help, my shoulder has already passed the acid test - I am swinging golf clubs again hitting my driver 310 down the middle ... well, OK, 280 and within sight of the middle ... well, OK, 250 and in the same zip code as the fairway! I highly recommend NHPT."

"My first time in today, so far staff have been very helpful calling my insurance for me, assisting with files. Meeting with Joel today, I learned more about my ankle injury than any of my 3 doctor visits! He provided me clear direction, exercises, and hope I will make a full recovery. I will update this after I received more care, but so far I'm a happy customer! PS they even have a view of Mt. Rainier from the office! Which I'm trying to get back to hiking around so it's like incentive, and Mountain framed pics in the office. "

My Doctor wanted me to try physical therapy first, so he send me to NHPT. After working with the excellent staff for a couple of months, they have shown me exercises and techniques that have helped rebuild my injured shoulder to nearly 100%. I am living a pain free life once again. Many thanks to the friendly and highly recommended staff at North Hill Physical Therapy."

"The heated wrap at the beginning of my therapy session and the cooling wrap at the end are two things that prompted the 5 star rating. But most important is the professional, caring, and very knowledgeable staff that took the time to listen, educate and make my time there very productive. With the help of Joel and Chandra I regained the use of my fractured humerus. A friendly front office and flexible scheduling made for a very satisfying experience. My orthopedic doctor recommended Joel at North Hill PT and I am very grateful he did."

"This team is awesome! I came in with extreme pain after many rounds of narcotics that provided no relief at all. After one visit with Joel, he immediately and properly diagnosed my situation with certainty, and provided such an in depth education that I began to feel at ease. I literally started to improve after just one session! Everything that happened was precisely as he suggested it would and not only was he spot on with the movements I needed to perform to heal, the entire staff was very knowledgeable, and overall a high energy enthusiastic bunch! I advocate for this team because they made what seemed impossible, possible, and within only 3 weeks they have nursed me back to great health! I would highly recommend North Hill PT to anyone in pain that can be cured by way of physical therapy. What a great and friendly group of people. Thank you all and I’ll be sure to stop in and say hello!! Sincerely, Earl H."

"After a questionable hip replacement in March 2018, was still having the same pain related issues, limiting me greatly at work and home. After months of P/T at a local Tacoma facility, I was worse. Found North Hill as an easy facility on my way home, stopped in, was set-up with 12 visits. Doctor Joel evaluated me on my 1st visit, tested me, questioned me in details no other health-care rep had done. Finished my bi-weekly visits 28 Feb. I am most assuredly 75% improved, and will now tend to my P/T armed with the knowledge I was given, and my increase in mobility, decrease in pain is 100% due to Doctor Joel, his amazing ladies who "worked me over" with profession care. Results are superb, I exit their care grateful and far more mobile and active than before. Great team, appreciate all they did for me..."

"In September up 2018 I had rotator cuff surgery on my right shoulder. I ripped up three of the four tendons. And about two weeks after surgery I went to North Hill physical therapy. I was referred to them by another physical therapist when I was searching for one. Joel and his entire staff are top-notch, they are experienced and caring and knowledgeable on all the exercises that they do with their patients. I received excellent care and treatment, and after 22 weeks I was given a full release and I can move my right arm again. where in the beginning, I did not think that was going to happen, and I did not want anybody to touch my arm or shoulder. If you need a physical therapist, I highly recommend the entire staff at North Hill physical therapy."

"I had a total knee replacement on December 18th. The doctor told me that I would need to schedule physical therapy within 4 days of surgery. So, I called North Hill Physical Therapy (NHPT) to schedule on the Friday before Christmas. No problem! They were able to accommodate me and the process of therapy began. Dr. Joel Lewis was there to evaluate me and spent ample time discussing what was going to take place. I was extremely impressed with everyone working there. Kristen and Juwana worked extensively with me. When issues came up, i.e. a limp, Joel and the ladies gave techniques and exercises to help me walk correctly. Everyone was professional, caring and qualified to assist in the healing process. A gigantic THANK YOU to Joel and the crew at NHPT for all their efforts in getting me back to playing golf, hiking, riding my bike and walking my dog! Life is good! I strongly recommend NHPT to anyone looking for a fantastic and amazing physical therapy group."

"This Physical Therapy Team is THEE most amazing group of professional's, healers, and down right honest and sweet group of practitioners in their skill compass. I was suffering an acute cervical pinched nerve. If you have not had the pleasure you can not appreciate how the pain is truly an 11 on the scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the absolute WORST EVER! I'M a RN, so when the Neurosurgeon said I HAD to go to PT before any insurance would approve surgery.... I was in despair. No Way did I believe ANY PT at this stage would relieve what no narcotic, if lucky steroid injections would help for an indeterminate amount of time, ...even so, I could not beg to pay cash for another as regulations only allot so many per body part per year!... Getting my desperate situation? I'll spare you the rest of the Gory details of the previous two years with this. The good news is that this physical therapy group actually did relieve my pain until I was able to get surgery! Not just that....But EVERYONE here is amazing!"

"I have had nothing but success at North Hill Physical Therapy. I went there first a few years ago with Plantar Fasciitis. I have had no problems since. A few years later I had a knee that was repeatedly swelling and causing pain. They were able to solve the problem, and I have had no more knee pain. Most recently I broke my fibula and did several weeks of physical therapy. I just graduated from PT, and I am back to walking after 11 weeks in a boot and on crutches. The best part of North Hill Physical Therapy is not only their expertise and ability to make people well......they all seem to enjoy their work and have fun doing it!

I learned a lot on the extent of my injury and the staff and therapists are the best. Not are they only very friendly , they are very helpful with the exercises and take time to show one the correct manner in performing the therapy. While I still have to continue the exercises at home for some time, I feel that with the help of the NHPT staff my shoulder is vastly improved since my first session.

Last year I had a total knee replacement and went to NHPT because it was close to my home. The staff is very knowledgeable and caring. They taught me how to walk again! When I had my other knee replaced this year, there was no doubt of where I would go for physical therapy. If you are looking for a caring and friendly place for PT, North Hill Physical Therapy is it!
