Here’s What Our Patients Have To Say

5 star

Doctor Kyle is amazing! I came to Kyle after dealing with some SI joint dysfunction and pain for about a month and within just a couple visits and exercises that he shared with me I was feeling better and back to the gym with no issues.

Kyle truly knows his stuff and takes his time to educate his patients on what is going on with their injury and the plan of action to get you better!

5 star

After meniscus surgery and a traumatic pregnancy I was very nervous to get back into working out. 4 months postpartum Dr.Kyle made me feel confident I would get to do all the things I loved to again with no pain. He showed me the skills I needed in order to prevent Injury now and in the future, proper technique and knowledge are what he is all about! “Motion is lotion!”
Thank you Dr.Kyle

5 star

Before coming to Athlete Restoration, I was convinced that I would always be limited on the activities I could do or exercises I could perform due to chronic lower back issues. Now I’m back in the gym with a renewed purpose and strategy. Thanks to my newly developed core stability, I’m no longer afraid to chase my kids around for fear of a back spasm putting me in bed for a week.
Thank you Dr. Kyle for your amazing practice!

5 star

So I tweaked my back in a CrossFit workout… I took time off lifting and thought that it would get better. It didn’t. I reached out to Athlete Restoration and was able to get evaluated that week. 10 sessions later, my back pain is gone and I’m moving better than I have in years. The focus on addressing the root of the problem was a game changer.
