What Client's Are Saying

"As an active sports enthusiast with five knee surgeries under my belt, I've seen my fair share of therapists, many of them very good. However, I would have to put Dr. Kaufman at the top of the list. After an MRI showed tears in both the labrum and rotator cuff and following the advice of my orthopedist, I chose therapy over surgery. Dr. Kaufman came highly recommended and after reviewing his credentials, I decided to do a few sessions of laser therapy, active stretching and Kinesio tape. I felt noticeable improvement in my pain after just a few sessions. I decided to extend my therapy with him and go through his active core exercise program. At first, I found it odd given we were not doing much direct shoulder work, but each week my shoulder got stronger and better. After 12 weeks of work with Dr. Kaufman, my shoulder feels stronger and functional as ever. As a sporting Clay's enthusiast, I was excited to get back out there after taking 12 weeks off. Taking the 28ga class in a local Fun Shoot on my first day back was just icing on the cake and my shoulder felt great. I could not have asked for better results. Ken accommodated my need for an early session, answered text messages while on his vacation and was always engaging - explaining exercises and areas of focus for the exercise. I highly recommend Dr. Kaufman for anyone seeking a qualified sports doctor and therapist."
