What Our Patients Are Saying...

As a fitness trainer, I’ve worked with multiple PT’s over the course of my career. Norah works along side you to determine the best treatment plan for your needs. As a mom, I would highly recommend her for pre and postnatal concerns. She is also wonderful for athletes and other fitness enthusiasts who want to continue or get back to a pain free lifestyle. Highly recommend Norah!"

Stephenie F. 

"Back in 2019 I injured my lower back while lifting..This pain lasted for nearly two years. Norah helped me understand the pressure & tension I was putting on my lower back when . She helped me pinpoint areas of weakness in my core, which significantly diffused the pain as I began to utilize the knowledge in my exercises. I no longer worry about my back hurting"

Shanna S.

Norah worked with me in a way that met my needs as an individual. I didn’t feel like just another patient. I had extreme back pain that grew over many years. Within a few weeks I didn’t have any pain!  I had seen other PTs in the past with no change in my pain level. So I was incredibly grateful for Norah’s expertise and guidance back to a healthy quality of life.
