  • 5 star review  My PT, Allan, was great. He explained what was going on with my injury, what movements to avoid, and an array of exercises to help resolve the issue. The front office staff was also excellent!!

  • 5 star review  Dr. Rodney has shattered the paradigm of what the traditional physical therapist looks like (the meet & greet, canned plan, PT assistant care model, [the not ideal one?]). In stark contrast, there is perfection in Dr. Rodney’s, Move Better approach, “A personal welcome by your certified therapist, a thorough evaluation/examination with undivided attention, an individualized plan, a one-on-one visit with your PT (no assistants), and their informing your doctors/surgeons of your progress”, is absolutely brilliant. Suffice is to say that my experience with Dr. Rodney, has been nothing short of remarkable; from his evaluating my complaint, valiantly attempting to keep me out of surgery, and then taking me through not one, but two hip repair procedures over the past 28 months, has shown Dr. Rodney to be among the very best.

  • 5 star review  Alan was very knowledgeable and great in helping me deal with low back pain. He worked with me to develop a strategy to mitigate pain and strengthen the area as well as increase flexibility. Alan is great for people with issues stemming from active lifestyles and athletics or those wishing to get back in the gym. The office was very helpful in offering flexible scheduling. Would highly recommend.

  • 5 star review  I have been treated for shoulder, neck and arm pain in Boston and Charlottesville with our success. After a few months I stated researching some different companies In the Charlottesville area. After reading the BIOS of the therapist at Move Better I decided to give them a try. I can honestly say they are the best that I’ve worked with. The results after 6 visits are making a huge difference. DS

  • 5 star review  I highly recommend Rodney Madagan and the team at Move Better Physical Therapy. He and the clinicians are excellent not only in their rehabilitative techniques and advice, but also in their care and concern for their clients. I went to him after having been told at another therapy site that I would likely not recover much more than the 30% use of my hand after an injury from a fall, but Rodney and the staff members were encouraging from the first visit and continued to be so throughout therapy so that I gained almost full use of my hand again. The office staff is also kind, helpful and organized. I am so grateful we have such caring people in our community. Having to go to therapy can be a frightening experience if one hasn’t encountered it previously, but this group greets clients with hope, care and encouragement and even some humor which, of course, always helps.
