"I first saw Heather when my feet were at their worst with Plantar Fasciitis in both feet and a lump--plantar fibroma--on my right. PF is an injury on the ligament which doesn’t stretch. I’ve been active all my life, cycling, hiking, yoga, tennis, dancing, just going about my business. This brought me to a standstill. The inflammation was so bad that I couldn’t stand having my feet touched. Excruciating. Couldn’t get out of bed without pain. Couldn’t stand in the shower.
Heather completed a thorough assessment of my health, footwear, activity patterns, walking, and body positioning all from my classroom. She began treating all of these areas through education, soft tissue mobilization, and specific exercises to meet my strength and flexibility needs.
She went the extra mile and even made a follow up call to the owner of the shoe store where I bought my orthotics.
My pf is getting better; not completely recovered, but I no longer have the continual pain. I can now massage my own feet and am not taking anti-inflammatory medication.
Heather is a compassionate, thorough professional who provides individualized physical therapy. She got me on the road to recovery. I call her my angel because she gave me hope."

After a car accident I was literally unable to perform the most basic physical activities, and I thought that my body would never recover. She began my treatment by listening to who I was before the accident and what activities that I enjoyed, and quite literally developed a recovery plan that has been getting me back there one step at a time. Heather is so knowledgeable with the muscle structure of the body that even on my most painful days I have improved. Heather's skills are endless.She has also brilliantly developed simple activities that I do at home on my own, and the result has been so positive I cannot thank her enough. She is the perfect balance of caring and kindness along with years of training and experience to give you the best results after each session. Heather is a stand out in her field and a gifted physical therapist.

Working with Taylor'd Physical Therapy and Wellness has helped me gain flexibility and strength in my lower back after an injury was keeping me from doing what I wanted to do. Direct communication with Heather every step of the way, along with her coming to my home for our appointments, made my recovery a convenient and personalized experience. Thank you, Heather. I will recommend you highly to my friends!
