Testimonials

Take a look at what some of our patients have to say about working with the Function Better team!

When I first arrived I was in substantial discomfort. Kevin worked with me to not only alleviate the pain but also come up with exercises & stretches so I could work at home. Now I can try and fix my low back issues before it gets too bad. The stretches & techniques he showed me are easy to do at home/work and make an immediate difference. I feel confident that if an issue arises I can take steps to solve it by myself. He also showed me better mechanics if I need to lift a load or do some yard work. I feel that the Utica site is professional and well staffed and very accommodating to my scheduling needs.

I came to Function Better and was in alot of pain and had trouble walking. Kevin was very friendly and helpful. He showed me some exercises that immediately helped the pain and my walking. After several weeks of appointments, I was back to feeling 100%. I left with the knowledge of knowing what to do to help prevent this injury from coming back. Would gladly go back again if any sort of problem came about. This was an excellent experience during a very painful one. Thanks again for all your help.

My initial visit demonstrated a pain level of 4-6 dependent on activities. After PT & home exercise, that level has dropped to a comfortable and tolerable 0-1. Dr. Kevin took the time to explain the mechanics, and to develop a home exercise plan that helped to alleviate the pain.

PT at Function Better was very convenient because of its location. The staff was very knowledgeable and friendly and listened to me well to help address the issues. I loved that it was combined with Studio 55 so that we could work toward getting back into the classes I like to take.

My experience at Function Better was enjoyable & very helpful. Dr. Smith was informative about my condition and the exercises he gave me to do at home. My knee does not bother me now, and I am able to get in my car, go up & down stairs, and just walk without thinking about my knee.
