"Hands down the #1 BEST physical therapy practice in Central New York. I have been going to them for several years now and trust their knowledge and expertise. Thanks to them, I've been able to recover faster from various injuries & surgeries because of their ability to pinpoint the issues and aggressively treat them. Sue, the owner, knows me so well that I can walk in and she can literally identify what's wrong and focus on the specific issue. Instead of hit or miss attempts to see what works and what doesn't (and spending a lot of money in the process) I get immediate results and am back on my feet in no time. The practice has a homey feel and everyone is so nice and helpful. I love going there. You can tell they all love what they do and they have all the cutting edge technology at their fingertips to aid in your recovery (I love the cold laser treatments!!). I've been to other practices in the past and am SO glad I found them. I won't go anywhere else. I highly recommend this practice to anyone requiring PT!!"

"From the minute I entered Westside I knew this would be a different experience. I’ve had PT before but was unsuccessful. I have arthritis and it is especially painful in my left knee. I thought the only solution was knee replacement. However, I met with Staci Stoffel who spent a long time assessing my problem and really LISTENED to me. She set me up with a series of exercises that have alleviated the pain and pushed back any plans for surgery. I know that these exercises are part of my daily life going forward if I want to continue to improve. I am so grateful to Staci and Tom Walser for the care they have given me. I have recommended Westside to a number of my friends and will continue to do so. Thank you!"

"The rehab experience from an ACL repair was tremendous. The staff is so in tune with BOTH my goal and limitations. They were able to push me just enough , avoiding setbacks, gaining strength and flexibility. I will recommend WSPT to anyone in need of rehab services. Great people with great understanding and positive attitude. I’d home them a solid 10 ! Thank you!"

"I am a Registered Nurse who decided to fracture her ankle on a slide in May. This was a significant injury with surgery. I was in a splint, cast and then walking boot. I started PT about a month after my injury. This was difficult for me to be dependent on everyone to help me. When I went to PT, I met Staci Stoffel who helped me along my journey to recovery. Staci and Joe were incredibly, kind, smart and really listened to my concerns. I graduated from wheelchair and walker, to one crutch and then solo. This time period felt so long, but in actuality it was a few short months. My improvement would not be as good as it is now without Staci and Joe. The office staff were very kind. The atmosphere was always welcoming and warm. They put you threw your paces for an hour each session. I could see improvement with every visit. This was a whole different healthcare experience for me, I am forever grateful for their compassion, knowledge and genuine care received. Thank you to the entire team at West Side Physical Therapy. This is a very special place for healing. "

MLS laser therapy along with other therapies helped me to finally "turn the corner" in regaining range of motion after knee replacement surgery. MLS laser therapy seemed to decrease the inflammation and scar tissue that were impeding my progress. It was simple and painless.
I am grateful West Side Physical Therapy recommended this to be added to my treatment plan!
