"Doug Heim really helped our son, after weeks of PT elsewhere that wasn’t effective in helping with his back pain. Doug is extremely knowledgeable and takes his time with each patient, making sure that they are doing the exercises correctly. He is full of tips and great information that was invaluable to my son’s recovery. He is now back to working out at SportPerformanceU, and we feel it is thanks to Doug that Henry is back to his “normal” workout routine."

"I've seen Doug for multiple injuries and recoveries over the years ranging from separated shoulders and AC joints to tennis elbow to a herniated/ruptured disc and most recently hip replacement. All before age 50 and each time Doug has gotten me back to active very quickly. He's the most experienced PT that I have seen, and his knowledge is robust. While I have had different doctors for these conditions, I always go back to Doug for PT. Recommend without any reservations to all."
