PATIENT TESTIMONIALS

BILATERAL KNEE PAIN

“After years of sports, high heels, and life-in-general, my knees revolted and I experienced the sudden-onset of constant, moderate, knee pain that interfered with my daily activities, exercise, and sleep patterns. I also had a desert hiking vacation planned and was concerned about how my knees would hold out. My orthopedic doctor referred me to Mizuta and Associates Physical Therapy for treatment. I worked with a therapist for 5-6 weeks prior to my trip to rehabilitate my knees and strengthen my legs, with the goal of a virtually pain free hiking trip. While on my hiking trip, I used the exercises and stretching activities that were provided, and after 60+ miles of hiking varying difficulty and terrain in one state park and five national parks, our goal was accomplished! I was virtually pain-free during my trip and several months later, I continue to be. Everyone at Mizuta and Associates was welcoming and easy to work with. Thank you, I am ever grateful for your services!” – J.K.

HIP RESURFACING

“Throughout my life, I have been a runner and also into karate. Eventually, I started to have hip pain on both sides. I had a hip resurfacing technique in order to avoid a total hip. I attended Mizuta & Associates because Ericka was the only therapist that I could find that understood my hip surgery and how to effectively rehab my hips. I have more motion and
strength in my hips than I have had in years. My MD is now letting me go back to my karate which he says is unheard of at my age!” – S.R.

KNEE ARTHROSCOPIC SURGERY

“Mizuta & Associates were thorough during the rehabilitation of my knee, taking it from undressing the surgery wrap through getting me back into full speed sports games. They focused on the injured knee but also worked on surrounding muscles that may have caused the injury originally and could prevent similar injuries in the future. Each visit included something new and challenging to push my limits en route to returning to normal activity and beyond. Open-minded, helpful, and listening to my concerns and celebrating my achievements, Mizuta & Associates made each visit feel like a productive stop at a friend’s house.” – M.L.

LOW BACK PAIN

“My Nurse Practitioner referred me to Mizuta & Associates for lumbar pain. My exercise program helped me to work on strength and flexibility. After two months of physical therapy, I was back to my life pain free. My Nurse Practitioner was very pleased with my progress, and I am back to all of my activities.” – K.M.

MENISCUS TEAR

ROTATOR CUFF SYNDROME

“My experience at Mizuta & Associates was amazing and therapeutic. When I first began my therapy, I was unable to sleep well or generally do even the simplest activities. My visits were always a welcoming aspect of my treatment because everyone always made me feel so comfortable and at ease. I received the greatest care from Ericka and have been able to resume most normal activities as a result of her attention to my injuries, as well as a solid realistic approach to help me achieve my goals. Ericka explained my home exercise program and helped motivate me to keep up with my exercises. If I ever find myself in need of physical therapy in the future, I will always return to Mizuta & Associates for my treatment. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone who finds themselves in need of physical therapy.” – J.B.

VMO RUPTURE REPAIR

“Mizuta & Associates is a great place to do your rehab because they have extremely knowledgeable and professional physical therapists. Many therapy places you might choose will have you working mostly with a technician, but at Mizuta you get one-on-one therapy with one of their physical therapists at every session. This is great because I had a unique injury by tearing my MCL and completely tearing my VMO. There is no standard way to rehab this injury, so Dr. Ericka Mizuta and Dr. Beth Miller worked closely with my physician to create a plan specific to my needs in order to fully recover. Dr. Miller has been great at providing me with exercises and support that are helping me see great improvement each and every week. They are incredibly flexible to work with your scheduling needs, which is important with a crazy work schedule. The ladies in the front office are very friendly and will help you answer any of your insurance questions or scheduling needs. I have nothing but good things to say about Mizuta and Associates and their professional staff.”

VA PATIENT WITH NECK & BACK PAIN

“I want to thank Mizuta and Associates for their commitment to excellence.  It was very nice that the VA allowed me to pick who I wanted to work with and receive excellent service.  I was a wreck before I went to Mizuta and Associates.  I had back pain and neck pain of about 10 on both.  Thank God for Nicole.  She took great care of me and when I was finished with my treatment there was a 50% decrease in my pain.  I have more work to do and I am thankful for all they have done for me.  Thank you for taking care of the VA and for taking great care of me as a Veteran. Mizuta and Associates are the only place I would recommend for treatment.  Thank you all so much for helping me feel better.” -CT

TOTAL MASTECTOMY

PC was diagnosed with breast cancer two years ago after a total mastectomy seeking help with her shoulder and back pain associated with post-op issues. Along the way, PC confided in her therapist claiming physical therapy has improved her mood, reduced pain, and increased her overall strength during her chemotherapy and radiation. “I am able to wake up each day with more energy and have very little pain in my shoulder. I don’t feel depressed or anxious about exercising. Thanks to Mizuta PT’s encouragement, I am able to return to my normal daily routine with confidence.
