    I am ready to get back to my normal life since having my knee replacement. I can now do everything as before thanks to Madden Therapy & their great staff. The staff is so friendly & they gave 110%, they went above & beyond.

  • physical therapy Hershey PA

    Knee and wrist pain from arthritis was making me feel so old! After ripping up my stomach with NSAIDS and doing cortisone shots with no relief, I limped into Gilbert to try something different.

    - Corina W.
  • physical therapy Hershey PA

    My rotator cuff injury made it difficult to do activities requiring lifting weighted objects, reaching to the side and behind, and reaching overhead. With Physical Therapy, my range of motion has improved and the pain has decreased.

    - Dennis W.
  • physical therapy Hershey PA

    My PT helped me to get back to normal. Prior to beginning PT I had pain in my neck and right arm along with numbness in my index finger. The pain would wake me early every morning and prevented me by eliminating the pain in my name and arm.

    - Deric M.
  • physical therapy Hershey PA

    Bursitis in my hip prevented me from walking, sitting and climbing stairs pain-free. Sleep was affected as well. The staff at Gilbert was excellent in working with me, teaching me and encouraging me through the exercises. Dr. Abbey, Rachel and Matt worked as a team and provided considerate and consistent care, and I am now pain free and grateful!

    - Diana D.
  • physical therapy Hershey PA

    When I first came to therapy, I had very limited motion in my left ankle. It hurt to walk and use the stairs. It also interfered with my balance. Danny worked diligently to increase my range of motion in the ankle as well as giving me exercises to help my balance.
