I successfully rehabbed an Achilles injury at Joint Effort thanks to my skilled physical therapists (especially Michelle and Shoshana) and the individual attention I received. They took a detailed history of my injury, explained the different steps in the rehabilitation process, and patiently worked with me on each exercise and machine. They were professional, thorough and sensitive during a time when my injury left me uncertain. I received a great balance of aggressive and careful treatment for a fast but smart recovery that didn't risk re-injury. The staff was respectful, the facility was comfortable, and they were great working with my insurance company so that I didn't have to. I would certainly recommend Joint Effort for physical therapy.

When Dr. Dines at Hospital for Special Surgery recommended Joint Effort for treatment of a torn labrum in my shoulder, I was wary due to some negative PT experiences in my past. Wow, was I ever pleasantly surprised! All three therapists by whom I've been treated are very well versed in the workings of the human body, how it responds to injury, and how it heals.

Each of the therapists has obligingly answered my many, and I mean many, questions about my changing symptoms, purpose of the exercises, options in surgical and non-surgical treatments, and effects of past injuries on my current condition. Most surprising, all three therapists are at ease discussing the findings of alternative medical practitioners, and allowing those findings to inform their therapies when appropriate.

They also have an uncommon understanding of and sympathy for the emotional strain that injury (especially chronic injury) can cause. My therapy has been a very collaborative process with many people, myself included, offering insights into my healing - a joint effort all around. I think the term that best sums up Joint Effort's treatment is respect - for my body, my emotions, my mind, and my choices. Essentially, they treat the whole person. I've been looking for years for a holistic approach within the medical establishment, and now I've found it.

Pros: Expert understanding of the biomechanics of the entire body

Cons: None yet

Roomy facility, well laid-out, lots of machines, excellent support staff, friendly and accommodating. Therapist seems well trained, carefully took history, outlined treatment. Owner seems well in control of the operation and ready to facilitate if necessary. Excellent security, clean, comfortable and welcoming. Compared with two other PT facilities in the neighborhood, Joint Effort Physical Therapy is far and away the superior in every category. You have to give it a plus just for the name--"Joint Effort." And that's the way the facility operates. Two weeks down, all positive.

Cons: So far, all positive.

I've had a lot of physical therapy and I cannot recommend this place. They do not provide enough individual attention and I didn't feel as though the therapists were really concentrating on me-- the sessions felt very pro forma and minimal. A significant portion of the therapy I had was conducted by the assistants and not the therapist, who had already moved on to the next client. I never understood the billing policy and my co-pay would vary for no particular reason. On the plus side, the facility is clean and modern, I stayed with them because they were conveniently located for me.

I dislocated my shoulder father's day. Only had a partial tear of a ligament. I was referrred to this facility by my orthopedist. For a month I went for physical therapy and for a month I did the same exercises. I questioned the physical therapist about the apparent muscle atrophy in my arm and she said not to be concerned. HOW COULD I NOT BE CONCERNED. Bottom line: this facility is not aggressive enough with their approach to healing.

On a final note, a recurring monthly appt i thought i had i apparently didn't have after the end of the month but nobody bothered to tell me. When i showed up for physical therapy was the time they decided to tell me i no longer had that time slot. They juggled and rearranged me so that i lost the physical therapist i always had and was seeing the physical therapist du jour. NOT GOOD. NOT CONSIDERATE. I wouldn't recommend this facility.

Pros: nice equipment, pleasant environment

Cons: poor administration, semi-lax approach to healing

I've been to physical therapy at several different places in my life, and this was by far the worst. The place is understaffed and tries to cram in too many patients at once. Every time I go, it's a madhouse. All too often I have had to wait 20 minutes for a room, and if I have a question while doing exercises, the therapist is too busy to help. The appointments are shorter than most places, and they hire therapists fresh out of school. Their equipment is old. It looks like they try to cut corners in all the wrong places. If you need therapy, go somewhere else.

The staff were nice but the therapst sucked. Heard a couple friends say they didnt get better either after they went to Joint effort. Dont bother. Also they charge u 50 dollars 4 missing ur appointment.
