Do you know someone who has had an injury or surgery and has not fully recovered? Have they been unable to do what they could before, or do the things they want? Sadly, it is my experience that there are many people who are in this boat and have not found a...

Modern life is filled and affected by technology and we are constantly being bombarded by data. From the budgeting app telling us our saving rate to our car letting us know we have a flat, these things are supposed to make our life easy. However, there are also many...
How Loud Do You Run? If you’ve read last week’s blog on how running cadence can help you reduce loading and injury risk when you run, you will be familiar with the idea that cadence and ground contact time are very strongly correlated. Longer ground contact time leads...

Andrew is an extremely valuable asset to our community thanks to his passion for not only his patients, but for staying on top of current research and techniques. I have seen him numerous times and the care I have received is second to none. Andrew is also actively involved in our local athletic community offering injury prevention advice and training tips, and you can often see him volunteering his time at athletic events. Highly recommend.
Dr. Walker, an incredibly knowledgeable and understanding physical therapist, has set the bar high when it comes to my expectations of the quality of medical care. He puts forth the effort to stay sharp by reading all of the current research publication material, and he has many quality connections for other medical services. His business model is very economical as you seem him once every month or two and are trusted to perform the exercises at home, although he is always available for advice over email. Further, he is listens attentively to your problems and does not come across as...read more condescending - even if you make errors in following his advice. He works to get the abnormality under control and then push it to strengthen as much as possible without flaring up it to eventually handle normal activities. I had a nagging hip pain, which he identified as a compressive hamstring tendonopathy from cycling and sitting for long hours on hard lecture hall seats. He addressed the problem by having my sit off of the tendon and on a cushion as much as possible and then progress to strengthening. We overcame the problem in about 2 months. I have also been seeing him about a shoulder injury, which has progressed rather non linearly for about 8 months now. This timeline hasn't been very ideal for me returning to exercise, but I am confident it is in good hands for recovery and will keep the review updated accordingly.read less
Andrew is a fantastic physical therapist, and I highly recommend him to everyone! I originally saw him for an impinged shoulder about 10 years ago in a traditional PT setting, and although I was very pleased with the results, the Physioworks practice model is a tremendous improvement over traditional PT. Andrew is able to provide more individual attention to his patients and work with them over a longer period of time to get better and more permanent results. Andrew has the gift of encouragement and focuses on educating his patients in the "why" of each exercise.
