"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."

When I started my therapy with Thrive I'd had three months of therapy with a different company. Immediately I realized marked improvements with my mobility, agility, and walking. After a month my confidence increased because of the attitudes and praise of the therapists. No longer was I confined to a chair after my stroke. After their therapies I was able to walk with my hemi walker to go outside enjoying our pond and patio at my assisted living facility. OT had much patience working with me showing me ADLs with confidence so that I could be on my own. Because of that I am now able to live on my own in an apartment with success. Speech therapy was very thorough using tools to help my aphasia, clarity with my speech, writing, and my memory. There were a variety of methods to build up my communication. All of the therapists are lovely, friendly, encouraging, and competent. I am better for having known them.
Christy and the Thrive organization is professional and sensitive to the senior community. They are knowledgeable, personable, patient and empathetic to the needs of each resident they work with on our campus. Christy has a warm spirit about her and the residents love her! We enjoy working and partnering with Thrive working towards the same goal of keep residents safe and happy.
Therapists from Thrive Therapy have helped me to stay active here at Magnolia Manor. I have been told that if I had not been taking the services offered plus periodic sessions with Thrive Therapy I would probably be in bed.
Besides helping physically exercise stimulates the brain according to Healthcare Professionals. I wholeheartedly recommend Thrive Therapy.
Hiral Patel is a great physical therapist. I met Hiral at Emory inpatient rehab in 2012 following spinal stenosis surgery. I was virtually paralyzed at the time out of surgery, and Hiral (then a resident) specifically requested me as his first patient, due to the difficulty of the case. The surgery and physical therapy were a great success, and have allowed me to walk again.
I followed Hiral's career ever since, and recently called him after receiving a prescription from my neurologist for balance issues due to diabetic neuropathy. Hiral is now one of the founders and a physical therapists at Thrive Therapy. Our recent therapy sessions for balance issues were also a great success.
I believe some of the approaches that makes Hiral successful is that he intuitively creates a program for each patient, reviews your goals at the end of each session, provides instructions on home exercises, and decides (with your input) what the plans will be for your next session. Prior to each exercise he demonstrates the moves and precautions, and explains the expected outcomes. Hiral approaches his therapy with intelligence, kindness, compassion, and produces great results.
As a professional, I am also very impressed with his business model. His mission statement is humanitarian, and it is clear that Hiral is truly in business to make a difference in individuals lives and in the community.
If you are considering Thrive Therapy, you have made a wise and effective decision.
