“As an athlete, I was referred here but was skeptical about coming. After the firsts two sessions, I felt less pain and then after three or four more sessions I was able to train again. As an athlete I have been to many physiotherapy offices and I wouldn’t recommend anyone anywhere else but to come here".
“I like it at RVC. The treatment is very good and it definitely helps. I thought it would be a boring experience but it’s cool".
“My pain is always less, there’s always relief. Tenson is knowledgeable, I always feel like when I come he’s going to help me and I’m going to feel better in the end.”
“Surely a pleasure meeting Tenson because he is one of the best. Very attentive, efficient and caring. I have had much relief and I would recommend anyone to come here if they need pain relief. I feel comfortable with these visits and being seen here.”
“My experience has been quiet a journey. When I arrived I was not able to lift my arm without crying. I am thrilled with the results so far and the care and compassion of the people that work here has been exceptional. I like the atmosphere here as it aids in the process. It has not been an easy journey but the results are there and the support has been outstanding.”
“Awesome! Tenson literally had to lift me up, I couldn’t walk at all. He had so much patience with me. I remember his surprise when I took the first step again. He saw passed all that seemed impossible and I am forever grateful. The only place I could recommend if anyone needs physiotherapy is RVC Rehab Services.”
