Dr. Walker is extremely professional and full of knowledge! If you're a runner/athlete, you cannot go wrong in scheduling an appointment for your 90 minute analysis that covers going over your gait, overall running form, and strengths and weaknesses. He will advise you on how to correct areas that need improvement (and can't we all improve as runners?) as well as offer a depth of knowledge on how to stay injury-free and be a life-long runner. We are so lucky to have him!
PhysioWorks and Andrew Walker came highly recommended from my boss after he had been seeing me deal with a muscle strain in my back for over a month. Andrew was able to help me identify exercises that would help work out the troubled area. I think I spent much less time going to therapy because we both recognized I could do the stretches necessary on my own once they were identified. PhysioWorks is out-of-network, so I was responsible for filing with insurance, but Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama covered $116 of my two visits that had totaled $135. That left me paying less than a copay would have been AND I was away from work much less time than if he wanted me to keep coming in and doing the exercises on site. He added more exercises with each visit. I would definitely return to him if I had need again.
