“They retrained my brain and muscles to move in a different way and gave me the tools to continue my recovery and wellness at home.”
“I thought I was fully recovered from an ankle injury after I completed traditional physical therapy and over a year had passed, but after getting back into working out it flared up on me big time.
I had extreme tightness in both legs that was completely debilitating. My ankles and knees would get sore just from normal walking throughout the day.
I like to maintain an active lifestyle so this was extremely frustrating and discouraging. I thought I might just have to deal with this forever...until I went through a 6-week program with Dr. Mike, Geneva and the rest of the team at Tangelo. They retrained my brain and muscles to move in a different way and gave me the tools to continue my recovery and wellness at home.
The combination of rehab exercises and manual therapy was new to me but far exceeded the experiences I've had at traditional physical therapy clinics. To put it over the top, their space is super modern and every single staff member is incredibly nice and knowledgable. I HIGHLY recommend!”

“Life. Changing. Parking is easy. The space is gorgeous. The staff go above and beyond to make sure you feel welcome and supported.
I had never done PT before my first visit at Tangelo and now I can't imagine my life without them! I am a fitness professional teaching 10-15 classes/week and I found Tangelo in an attempt to sprinkle in some necessary self-care to my routine. They are thoughtful, attentive, and keep it upbeat and positive.
Dr. Mike + Geneva helped guide me through a program specific to my body and its needs. After some hands-on treatment and attention, they walked me through some simple, quick exercises (aka easy to practice and maintain despite busy, active lifestyle) and it has transformed the way I feel in my body. You are informed and supported every step of the way, even after you leave your appointment. They are amazing!”

“From the minute you walk in, the energy is incredible…”
“This place is AMAZING!!! Dr. Smith and his team are exceptional on every level. From the minute you walk in, the energy is incredible and it's not what you would normally experience or expect when you think of traditional physical therapy.
I have been an athlete all my life and dealing with a long list of injuries and muscular imbalances and this place is the reason I'm able to work out right now AND why I'm so hopeful about what I'll be able to do in the future and continuing to improve every single day.
They always make you feel encouraged about getting to your goal and take an amazing whole health and full body approach to everything, rather than just treating the one area that's bothering you. I literally couldn't say enough great things about this and recommend them to absolutely everyone I know. I am a completely different person from when I started seeing them!”

“I am more in control and that is the BEST feeling ever!”
“100%! Make an appointment now for your consultation! I am a 30-something-year-old female who has suffered from chronic shoulder/neck/trap pain for over 2 years. The pain was debilitating not allowing me to work out to the degree I was used to, couldn’t sleep, couldn’t work, lost muscle strength and I think I was about to lose my sanity :) I almost thought I was making the pain up, in my head, because x-rays and MRIs were normal. My regular [doctor] sent me to a pain management clinic where they diagnosed me with "Trigger Point pain." Basically, my muscles were knotted up from overuse and causing some nerve pain. The pain management clinic worked on covering up my pain, prescribing me pain meds, muscle relaxers, and giving me Trigger Point Injections every other month. I also tried Acupuncture, Deep Tissue Massage, Cupping, Physical Therapy, Personal Training at my gym, Chiropractors, topical creams, and more. Still no consistent relief and no idea how to fix it besides visiting the Dr for shots, consistently.
I met Tangelo's team at my gym when they came in for a foam rolling workshop. They were so informative that I decided to ask them about my shoulder and to be honest, didn't expect much when I went to visit them for my consult. When I first visited their location, it was way different than I expected. There was upbeat music, energy, and excitement! I met with Dr. Mike Smith, performed some movement exercises, felt the area and then educated me on what he saw actually happening with my shoulder/neck when I moved. He took the time to show me pictures and explain exactly what was causing my pain, in the trap/neck, and how we could improve it. He didn't say it would be easy or fast, or promise he could cure it, but rather give me the tools to fix movements that were causing the stress. I have now been going to see the Tangelo team for a month and I have more good days than bad. I can sleep on my side again which I haven't done in 2 years and I'm feeling more confident at the gym, applying what I have learned. I know exercises/movements to perform when I feel the pain and how best to gain strength in the muscle groups needed. I am more in control and that is the BEST feeling ever! Not only will you learn how to improve your movements but the Dr will spend time with you doing assisted movements, massage, chiropractic work, stretching, taping and more during your appt. Best of both worlds!
The Tangelo team truly cares about you! They will remember your name when you walk in or see them in the neighborhood, they are always energetic, excited and positive...and SO educated in their services! They remember to ask me how my dog is when I arrive, how the concert was I saw over the weekend...really showing that they pay attention to me, personally and professionally.
I would highly recommend their team for therapy and pain relief!”

“If in pain, work with this team. They are fantastic!”
“Short story: If in pain, work with this team. They are fantastic! It's worth the time investment to get results. True professionals.
Long story: I started a rigorous exercise regimen during the summer and by fall I was in enough pain that it interfered not only with my workout but everyday activities, too. At age 55, I didn't want this to become a forever issue that kept me from deepening a healthy lifestyle. Dr. Dave Mobley and his skilled team of physical therapists (Emmie and Rob) diagnosed the issue right away and got to work resolving it. It's very much a team approach with highly personalized attention. They all listen well, ask great questions and zero in on triggers. They helped me understand what I was doing to aggravate the problem -- both in daily life and while working out -- and how to prevent it from happening in the future.
These guys are true professionals. Gems, every one of them! Thanks, Tangelo team for helping me continue developing my health and wellness!”
