“I have used Dave Turner’s services for over a decade. He is brilliant in his assessment, diagnosis and treatment. Dave knew exactly how to treat my various joint and muscular ailments giving me immediate relief and long term.”

-Craig S.

“You can expect to be treated with kindness, warmth, empathy, and understanding. They care about how you feel, and what is best for you. You and your well-being will be at the forefront of your treatment. You also will be encouraged, challenged, and motivated not just to get better and recover but to continue improving and getting better, when your treatment ends.”

-Mirella K.

“I’m a 69 year old cancer survivor. I came to Dave Turner with a frozen shoulder caused by radiation therapy
Dave started on my shoulder and as therapy advanced, he discovered that my whole torso (front and back) was frozen. It took most of a year to “loosen” me up. It was worth it. I gained 3/4 inch in height, found that I could practice proper posture, and that the lack in pain improved my attitude. Thank you, Dave”

“This last December I decided it was time to give back to those with blood cancers. I embarked on training to do a half marathon this next April for Team In Training. Of course I found out that my lower body was in bad shape. Dave has gotten me from a difficult 2 mile walk to being able to do 8 miles in just over 2 hours. This time his therapy has loosened my knees, relaxed and loosened muscles and tendons from pelvis to toes. I don’t hurt any more. I’m looking forward to 9+ miles tomorrow. Again, Dave has improved both my physical and mental health.”

“Everyone at each appointment took their time with me. At no time after visits did I have more pain, in fact less pain. The best physical therapy in the valley. I want to come back after surgery.”

“I have seen Dave for a couple different issues.  The first time was for my frozen shoulder.  I now have my full range of motion and no pain!  I recently saw him for hip pain; he diagnosed my problem and I can walk normally again without pain.  The exercises he gave me I continue to use to make sure I don’t relapse.  Don’t wait until your pain gets worse.  I’ve found immediate treatment makes the rehab so much easier to get through.  Well versed in his area of expertise, very professional and pleasant.  I recommend him to everyone who has any pain and is willing to exercise on getting better.”

You also will be encouraged, challenged, and motivated not just to get better and recover but to continue improving and getting better, when your treatment ends.

Where do I begin? Firstly, I have to thank Dave for helping me get my life back, quite literally. When I was graciously accepted here as a new client, I was warmly welcomed by Carley, who patiently listened to my ailments and concerns and stories and ensured that Dave knew what to expect. Since I did not receive any physical therapy for several months after my accident for different reasons, this was my first attempt at getting some relief in this respect. After my first session, I was able to sleep 6 or 7 hours straight, which was the first huge breakthrough for me, as I only slept 2-3 hours at a time for months prior to my visit here. When I was asked how I felt after that first session, I had tears in my eyes, when I thanked them.  It was huge for me. At one of my sessions, while I was resting comfortably, in a private room, I overheard another lady express her excitement over the fact that she was able to sleep for 10 hours after her first session. “Aha,” I thought, so this is not just me. This place is awesome.

Secondly, I am not sure my words can adequately express my gratitude for all the wonderful help I received at Advanced Physical Therapy & Ergonomics in the process of recovery from auto crash injuries to my neck and back but I shall try. I am eternally grateful to Dave, especially, as his skillful and mindful therapy helped me tremendously with my overall recovery. Carley is just a gem and her smile, caring ways, great sense of humor, skilled therapy directives, and willingness to listen helped me get through the worst of times and the best of times in this long journey of recovery and will stay with me forever. I am grateful for Laura’s steadfast encouragement and consistency and patience with telling me over and over about all the best exercises and ensuring that I was doing them correctly. I also thank Abby for her skillful help with my upper back and neck and great ball exercises, demonstrated by Laura that I still find very helpful.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you so much for everything you do!”

“This place is fantastic! I started off with Dave and then slowly began working more with Dale. Both are excellent physical therapists. They work me hard but always make me laugh.”

“I have especially enjoyed working with Dale. He is very knowledgeable and has made a huge difference in my various ailments. I came in with back, hip, knee, ankle, and foot problems. He has spent a lot of time focused on what is most important to me. Great client-centered customer service. I would definitely recommend both of these guys to others!”

“Dave is an excellent physical therapist.  I had a particulate lodged under my knee cap.  I was unable to straighten my leg because the pain was so severe.”

“After 2 therapy sessions with Dave, where he manipulated my knee joint, I was able to straighten my leg and walk without pain.  In addition, he taught me how to work my knee joint to move the particulate out of a painful spot.  I have been painfree and able to exercise and enjoy my regular lifestyle thanks to him.”

Neefer D.

“I have been a patient off and on for many years, for a variety of issues. During this time I have also seen a couple of other physical therapists and no one compares. Dave is professional, very knowledgeable, friendly, treats his patients with total respect, and most importantly, he listens to you and engages you so that you learn about your own body. Dave gets a 15 on 1-10 scale!”

Judie H.

Livermore, CA

“A friend recommended physical therapist, David Turner to help me with a large vertical abdominal hernia that had gotten progressively worse over the last 50 years.  It was challenging in that most muscle toning exercises only made it worse.  He worked with me to work out strapping and exercises that would allow me to increase my muscle tone and control.  In just a couple of months, my stomach had flattened enough to actually be noticed by casual acquaintances who thought I was dieting.  I’ve actually lost no weight, but I’m feeling and (apparently) looking better.  Thank you David.  I would recommend your services to anyone, ANYDAY!””
