Information for New Physical Therapy Clients
Effective January 18, 2022, Evolution PT & Yoga has closed. Read our business update and closure notice here.
Thank you for choosing Evolution for your physical therapy services over the past 15 years. Our licensed physical therapists Dr. Janet Carscadden, Dr. Rachel de Simone, Dr. Michelle Downing, Meagen Satinsky MPT, and Dr. Patsy Tyler have been committed to providing evidence-based evaluation and treatment techniques.
Masks are still required when visiting the office. Social distancing is maintained when close contact is not needed. Our treatment rooms are sanitized between clients and we are using HEPA filters to purify the air and increase air circulation. Treatment sessions are individualized for each client based on diagnosis and recovery goals.
Here’s what our patients are saying about our physical therapy sessions:
Michelle at Evolution has treated me for two different injuries and in both cases I left her care far better than I came. Although one never hopes to be injured again, if I was I would go back to her in a heartbeat. I really value her integrative body-mind wisdom, deep physiological knowledge, and practical, functional approach. And everyone else at Evolution that I’ve interacted with has been great too! – SW 2021
Janet is a gifted healer. I had a particularly tricky injury that felt pretty incapacitating. Janet’s diagnosis was on the money; she navigated me gradually and expertly through weeks of flare-ups caused by inflammation. She never gave up, allowing my body to rest and heal, patiently adding exercises as my pain decreased. Today my functioning is nearly normal. You will appreciate Janet’s clear explanations and compassionate, careful listening. I would recommend her to anyone. – KN 2020
I began telehealth PT a month ago in the midst of Covid-19 office visit limitations. I had considerable shoulder pain and restricted range of motion that severely impacted my activity. Within one month, my level of pain has dramatically decreased and my activity level is almost back to normal. I think telehealth is an excellent means of doing physical therapy. I was so incredibly surprised how well this platform of health care delivery worked for me!
Thank you, Evolution Physical Therapy & Yoga! – NS, 2020
