    I went to Chad because I shoulder pain from a hockey injury, as well as the shoulder was severely internally rotated due to have a desk job for so many years. Chad was very thorough in finding exactly where the injury/ week point was. It took him just 3 visits to basically have the shoulder almost back to 100%. He was very hands on, he went over a variety of exercises I could do on my one in order to continue my rehab when I wasn’t with him and he was great about getting right back to me if I text him a video or question. I cannot recommend him enough if you have pin or an injury. His knowledge and experience are second to none and even though for the most part my shoulder is back in the right path, I plan on continuing to see him at least once a month, because his sessions are second to none!

    I cannot recommend Chad enough. I was a couple weeks away from getting shoulder surgery scheduled when I decided I would try PT one more time. After 10 years of shoulder pain from volleyball, I was able to go back to hitting pain free within 9 months of hard work with Chad. He was there every step of the way when I mentally doubted my progress. He catered my workouts that mechanically mimicked the tasks I do as a volleyball coach. And when I was having bad flashbacks of old PT exercises, he saw my panic and immediately moved onto something else. It was completely different than any other PT I had done in the past. You would be foolish not to go with Chad.

    I have been working out a while for overall health benefits and to hopefully benefit my golf game. I had the opportunity to go through the TPI Assessment with Dr. Chad Kuntz. From the assessment I learned specific areas of flexibility, stability and balance that I needed to focus on in my workouts to be able to swing a golf club more efficiently. A video of my swing during the assessment showed some flaws and positions that could be improved. At the conclusion of the assessment Dr. Kuntz provided me with specific exercises to target my weak areas of flexibility, stability and balance. I also sought swing instruction from a PGA Teaching Pro. The exercises from Dr. Kuntz combined with the teaching instruction have improved my golf swing in a rather short amount of time. I am finding it easier to swing and achieve the proper positions with the increased flexibility and stability.

    I first met Dr. Kuntz at a continuing education seminar and was instantly drawn to his approachable, erudite, and disarming demeanor. I decided to book a visit with him as I was having some shoulder issues and wanted to take advantage of the free consultation and his expertise. The consultation and my subsequent therapy appointments (3) were exactly what anyone would hope for when seeking health assistance within the medical community. I was never rushed and everything was thoroughly explained. Its like the old saying "people don't care what you know until they know that you care." This quote defines the experience I had. I have referred several of my personal training clients to Dr. Kuntz with great success. He is also incredible accessible and his follow-up is inimitable. Not only that but he checks in on me periodically to see how I am doing. He truly makes an investment in his patients. He is eagerly aggressive to address your issues and get you back to your activities. If you are an active person or athlete and you want some one that will address your concerns and explain what the issues are and truly cares about seeing your rehabilitation experience through to success then look no further than Dr. Kuntz.
