"John C. is the best PT guy in America. I have sent about 50 people there and their reviews are the same. I would not consider any other option. They had me back dramatically quicker than I was supposed to be. I wish I was as good at my job as they are theirs."

“As a coach, I took a great deal of pride in having a positive relationship with my players and staff. From the first time I walked into the Advanced Training and Rehab Kirkwood location, I felt a special positive energy from all the staff members. Doing physical therapy or a work out is never easy, especially when you are recovering from surgery or an injury. A smile, a friendly conversation and positive support make a difficult task seem a much easier to accomplish! After 3 months of physical therapy I highly recommend the TEAM at Advanced Training and Rehab Center. The staff is knowledgeable and cares about each of their clients.”

"ATR is not just a place you go to rehab an injury or recover from surgery. It’s a group of dedicated physical therapists who cares for each patient with personal, knowledgeable and experienced care. When physical rehab is required for me or my family, I request ATR because I trust them explicitly. They have cared for me for over 20 years – shoulder surgery, back surgery, and other weekend warrior injuries. They have cared for my wife and three active and athletic daughters. Brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews use them because of that level of trust and care. You have a choice in your post injury care. Tell your doctor you want to go to Advanced Training and Rehab for your care like I do!"
