I was fitted for orthotics by James Fowler Physical Therapy, and they coordinated with their specialist Tamir Kfir. The orthotic inserts are supportive, and they're surprisingly easy to insert into sneakers for everyday city walking and gym training. They have helped to lessen the back and knee pain James and his team have been treating me for. I even use the orthotics in rollerskates, and it's easier to focus less on balance and just enjoy skating. They make my skates and shoes more comfortable, as if they were custom fit to me. I have noticed a difference in my stability, balance, and control that is helping me improve my skating and learn new skills. I don't skate without them now!

James Fowler is the best Physical Therapist I've seen and I've been to a lot of different PTs in my life, having played collegiate and professional soccer. His attention to detail, his ability to solve complex deep-seated biomechanical problems, and the amount of time he spends with his patients is second to none. He works closely with you to make sure you're able to achieve whatever goals you have. As someone who wants to continue to play competitive soccer for as long as I can, he is always the first person I go see whenever I have an injury or a problem because I know he will work with me to get me back on to the field. If you are looking for a good PT I highly recommend scheduling an appointment with James.
