"I was involved in a car accident and suffered multiple injuries. I have seen great improvement in my well being thanks to the professional instruction and treatment I received from Dr. Erik Nassif, PT and Dr. Justin Murray, PT at Fitness Forum Physical Therapy in Rome. If you follow their instruction and advice, you will see an improvement as well."
"I had bilateral knee replacements and after being discharged from the therapy at the hospital, I scheduled my first therapy appointment at Fitness Forum Physical Therapy. I attended therapy 3 days a week for 2 hour sessions. When I started I was using a walker. They moved me to a can very quickly and then I was walking without a walker or a cane. I am now driving and will be returning to work. All of the therapists took time to explain and show me the exercises. I am joining Fitness Forum Physical Therapy as a fitness member to continue my exercise regiment and work on my range of motion. I believe the service was great!"
"Several times over the past four years, I have entrusted the care of a disc injury located in the lumbar area with nerve involvement to the capable hands of Erik Nassif and, on occassion, Justin Murray at Fitness Forum's Rome office. Both Erik and Justin are consummate professionals. Their knowledge of the spine, the McKenzie Method of treatment and their ability to offer expert instruction, both at the facility and for a home exercise program, have brought me back to nearly 100%. I believe that my overall health, body strength and pain free lifestyle is the result of the treatment and assistance I received. I now enjoy an active, normal life and am a regular as a gym member. I have and will continue to recommend Fitness Forum Physical Therapy to my family, friends and acquaintances."
"Professional, motivating, knowledgeable and personable", that's how I describe the Fitness Forum team. From the office, to the physical therapist, they literally got my feet back on the ground! I am so thankful for Erik and Justin's help and direction after my bilateral total knee replacements. No longer do I agonize walking distances and standing for long periods of time, it's been life changing."

"Kim has been my therapist for a number of different injuries over the past years. From her initial contact and throughout my treatment I have always found her to be caring, knowledgeable and motivating. I can't say enough good things about her care and I would highly recommend her."

"Fitness Forum provides a comfortable and safe environment to exercise and rehabilitate. The entire staff is friendly and professional. The PT doctors are very knowledgeable and experienced and provide great personal instruction. PT assistants are also available and provide help with equipment and instruction.
At present, I'm a member in the independent program. This has allowed me to stay and exercise on my own while having access to the PT doctors and staff, should I need them. Since I have physical limitations related to past surgery and fibromyalgia, it has been invaluable for me to continue strengthening safely under their guidance. Migrating to a gym member, I realized that there is a more therapeutic range of equipment available here than at your typical gym. I have referred several family members to Fitness Forum. I would definitely recommend Fitness Forum!"

"I believed I could recover; I am so glad you believed that too. I have so much joy over what I can do, and I am working to be able to do more.
It's nice to know you are there if I need you. I am very grateful for all you have done."

"I woke up the other morning only to feel like the ‘Big One’ hit me. I tried to stand up but the room was spinning so quickly, I sat back down on the edge of the bed. Describing the feeling to my significant other, was enough for her to realize that I was suffering from BPPV - Benign positional paroxysmal vertigo.
After doing a little research we felt it best to contact a physical therapist instead of getting stuck in the doctor office cycle at my primary care. One call to Fitness Forum got me connected to Kim Strong who is well aware of the condition and the maneuver to help correct the problem. It only required two visits and I am good to go. In addition to treating me she also carefully explained what exactly the procedure accomplished and was kind enough to even write out the instructions for me to attempt it home should I need a tuneup down the road. Her careful consideration to detail and her willingness to share her knowledge was refreshing to say the least. I would highly recommend Kim for any PT that you may need."
