What Our Patients Say

“I felt safe–number 1! I also sensed shortly after starting therapy, that I was in experienced hands (no pun intended). I would recommend your office to anyone in need of help.”
- Suzanne I., MOTION Norwalk
“My MOTION hand therapist is so good at what she does. She has helped me understand the correct way to rehabilitate my hand after surgery. I actually look forward to going to my sessions.”
- Diane S., MOTION Southington
“My MOTION therapist does miracles! This is my second elbow/forearm she has worked on. She is very thorough and I have obtained relief I only thought possible with surgery! I have been to other therapy groups—no other therapist compares to her.”
- Erin L., MOTION Southington
