"I have been having Vertigo issues for the couple months, and my primary care doctor prescribe meds for my Vertigo. I did not like how the meds made me feel, and decided to try physical therapy instead for Vertigo. I actually started doing physical therapy at Thrive Therapy in GA, and it was one of the best thing I ever did for myself. From my first visit seeing Dr Patel my dizziness, imbalance, and head spinning came to an immediate halt, and I felt like a brand new man. I did a couple more sessions with Dr Patel and the exercises routine help me with my everyday life. Especially working from home Dr Patel made me change how I sit at my desk and how I should position my computer at my desk. All those simple changes made such a big difference in my everyday work routine. I will recommend to anyone who have Vertigo or imbalance issues please make an appointment and see Dr Patel. FYI my insurance did cover the therapy sessions. Thanks. Ian Thomas"

"I know there are those who feel therapy is not going to help you get better. In fact, you think nothing is going to help you get better. I'm here to let you know, that isn't true. I suffered severe dehydration due to food poisoning. I was so dehydrated it caused me to have severe vertigo. It was so bad I could not lift my head even one inch and I could not stand to have my eyes open because the entire world would spin at warp speed. I could not sit or walk. After my body received electrolytes, I could open my eyes and lift my head but I could not walk. My balance had been completely destroyed. I did get some help from a natural healer using acupuncture and Neurolink but it was Physical Therapy that helped most in my recovery. The exercises started helping restore my balance and my ability to function. Walking and looking anywhere but straight ahead was a problem. Just walking in a straight line was a problem. I couldn't walk and bounce a ball or close my eyes and stand still. I couldn't even walk down a long hallway without feeling dizzy and losing my balance. After several weeks of therapy at Thrive, I was able to take up life again. I now walk 3/4 to 1 mile most days, do my shopping, clean house, and go on hikes without losing my balance. It was a journey but with the right help I made it. Regaining my independence was very important and finding the right therapist made it possible. Oh, yeah, I forgot to mention that I'm over 65. If I can do it, you absolutely can, too."

"Excellent outreach particularly for those seeking housing solutions and having little to no information on how to. I was made to feel comfortable and welcome even though I was miles away. Thank you thrive."

"Therapists (OT, PT) of Thrive Therapy are skilled, kind and patient. Besides working with me once a week to strengthen my core, balance, arms, legs, and hands, they motivate me to incorporate the "moves" into my daily exercise routines. They are always positive and encouraging. Whenever I made a little movement progress, I'd let them know, and they would cheer me on. Positive reinforcements are important for recovery. I am functional today. Thank you to the Thrive therapists."
