"I went to the Fountain Valley Office. I have never had a therapist like Jimmy Wu and his assistant Brianne. I have been to many Therapist after many surgeries and was never fully happy with them. But, Jimmy is hands on each and every day. He tells you what the goal is and he answers any questions you may have. He understands your pain and works very hard to get you to a better place with it. Since I have CRSD, he worked hard to get me where my pain was minimal. He and Brianne helped me every day with my exercises. They are so warm and friendly and truly care about each and every patient. You never want to be released from their care. I can't thank them both enough for all they have done for me. I would recommend the Fountain Valley office. It's a small office and you get such great personal care here. Thank you, Jimmy and Brianne, for everything. I will miss you both."

"I had bad neck pain for a long time and right shoulder pain before taking PT here. All the staff is very very nice and helped me a lot during exercises. I had two main PTs, Brad and Jeremiah. They are very knowledgeable. They listened to me and gave me great support of exercises. They know what they are doing very well. After couple of months of PT, my pain is way better. No more headache. No more constant pains. I can’t thank them enough for their work. They did an excellent job!!! Thank you very much."

"I have had 3 major surgeries this past year. The first was back fusion on L2&3 March 20, 2017. I began therapy at California Therapy Solutions after I received a prescription to begin. My recovery was really quick & amazing and I was back to my routine of TRX Class & gym workout before I knew it. In February I had to have a second surgery of total knee replacement on my right knee. Apparently both knees were bone on bone due to years of competitive tennis & torn meniscus. Again, I started therapy with Jimmy at the Fountain Valley location close to where I live. The staff there is amazingly friendly, helpful and very professional. I just finished my last therapy session today after having my right knee replaced June 5, 2018. Jimmy has helped me heal and gain full motion in both knees and he is the most knowledgeable therapist I have ever had work on me. I highly recommend Jimmy & Breanne at California Therapy Solutions Fountain Valley for anyone who is in pain and needs treatment of any kind. "

"Mark Sheptock and his assistants (Cody and Amber) were amazing. Mark assessed the back pain I have (had), and adjusted work out and stretches according to my complaints. I had ups and downs through the weeks I was with CTS...some days painful and other days less painful. But Mark encouraged me to keep on with stretches and exercises. It seems as though every week I went in to see Mark, he would teach me a new technique along with an explanation what he wants to achieve and why it works. When I first started with CTS, I could barely walk 50 yards. Today, I am much more mobile...and some days even pain free! I am continuing to use the tools I learned at CTS and seeing and feeling gradual improvements daily. Mark, if you're reading this review.. THANK YOU VERY MUCH !"

Not only is Brett very knowledgeable, but he paid close attention to my comfort and provided guidance that I expect will provide long-term benefits. Leah was very capable and well informed too.

"After multiple rib stress fractures from rowing, I was so grateful to find California Therapy Solutions. Bill, Lynn, and David were able to accurately assess the areas of my body that were leading to injury and suggest solutions that no one else had come up with for me. As a US National Team hopeful, it is essential that I put in high mileage on the water and continually build strength to reach my goals. I worked with Bill for three months of pilates sessions that gave me a new-found appreciation of my core and addressed areas of instability in my right shoulder. Bill also taught me how to safely Olympic lift and it is so exciting to be making gains that transfer to the water. My body feels stronger than ever and despite increasing training volume that in the past would have led to aching ribs, I've stayed injury free since I started working with CTS. My faith in my body is renewed and I am looking forward to what the future will bring! Thank you!"

"I had knee replacement surgery I chose the Newport Beach Office. The entire staff made me want to work harder I finished my therapy March 30th. Mark Sheptock, DPT is excellent at explaining each task and the benefits. Therapy assistant Anna helped to make sure I was doing everything right and pushing me. Best therapy staff in the area thank you."

"Right after New Years Day 2018 I had paralyzing back pain. After doctor visits, xrays, and an MRI, I was sent to PT. I arrived in a wheelchair, barely able to stay seated or even stand. After an examination by Brett, he held up a spine skeleton and commented that I was pointing to my SI Joint as the location of my pain, not my spine as originally diagnosed. Sure enough, after regular PT visits, religious following of my at home PT program and a cortisone shot in that joint, I am thrilled to be pain free...something I feared would never happen. I credit Brett with patiently listening to me which set me on the right course for recovery. Lindsay, Ana and Nick were all exceptionally friendly too. If you can't imagine ever being without pain again, think again. PT works and CTS will get you there! Thank you Brett and CTS!"

"Brett (PT) and Nick (PT Assistant) has been working on me for the last couple of months. My neck pain was severely affecting my ability to do work and sit for long periods of time at the start of my therapy and by the end the pain had gone, the mobility around my neck was restored. I witnessed this happen slowly, as Brett worked on my muscles, relaxing them and moving them to stop the pinching of my nerves and as I worked through the exercises they put together for me with Nick. I've been very impressed by Brett's skill level and the friendliness of all the staff at the newport beach location. Besides the great service, scheduling was also super easy and convenient, I was able to pick time that worked great for me.
I hope I don't need it again, but if I do need PT in the future, I will certainly be coming back to here."

"Christine Weideman, DPT, at the Irvine location, has been my physical therapist from time to time over the past three plus years. She is an outstanding physical therapist; she is a very well trained professional who is gentle, informative, and has restored functioning to my hip, knee, and shoulder. I am especially impressed at her work on my rotater cuff problem; it literally went away! I recently developed a back problem and will be back to see Christine for this. I am grateful for Christine's professionalism, her knowledge about the body, and her willingness to give me follow-up work for after physical therapy. I am an older woman and have arthritis in the joints I mentioned, so her work has kept me mobile and able to maintain my active lifestyle. I cannot recommend Christine highly enough. I am grateful for the amount of time she spends on her patients and for the helpful effects of her massage therapy. Thank you Christine and thank you California Therapy Solutions for having such high standards for your practitioners."

"Good health is a precious gift; and when that health is threatened by the pain from a low back injury such as I experienced last month; and then seeing the MRI while my doctor pointed to all the problems and their probable causes I did not expect him to prescribe Physical Therapy. However, he did exactly that and I chose to go to California Therapy Solutions in Newport Beach (where I had gone a few years ago for successful knee injury treatment.)
On my first visit I met Mark Sheptock who was to be my Physical Therapist. He began by conducting a very thorough, professional intake examination and interview; taking careful measurements, asking questions, determining stretch capabilities et al. The balance of the appointment was spent in learning various exercises that were also pictorially detailed for me in personalized exercise instructions for me to take home and to use there.
The follow up visits 3x week were a combination of building on the previous visits with stretches and utilizing long-neglected muscles to strengthen my core and relieve strain and pressure on my back. Mark's assistant, Anna was also skilled and adept at putting me through the paces on the exercise table
Mark proved to be an insightful, well trained, highly skilled, extremely knowledgeable and intuitive practitioner. His work enabled me to become pain free and able to resume my everyday activities sooner than expected. He deserves high praise, indeed.

"Lindsey (physical therapist) and Sam (Therapist's assistant) were outstanding!! They took great interest in helping my neck and shoulder pain. Because of them, I was freed of pain within 8 visits. Lindsey is very compassionate, efficient, helpful, and thorough. Her therapy exercises recommended for me are very helpful. I would definitely return to the Costa Mesa location. The receptionists (Melissa and Lacey) are very courteous, kind, and friendly. It was a pleasure to go to this location. I have highly recommended this location to my friends."

"I have had an outstanding experience with my physical therapy through California Therapy Solutions following my two knee replacements. Lachelle Chapman was honest and patient with me about the steps necessary for an optimal recovery. At times rigorous, the exercises and treatment that she prescribed were geared towards helping me to attain a better level of functionality with my legs. She has the ability to inspire people to continue the exercises has she has demonstrated. She embodies professionalism with her vast knowledge of physical therapy and willingness to help you achieve results. The staff was also friendly and accommodating.

"This staff KNOWS what they are doing. I have spinal stenosis. Evan is very knowledgeable of the problem and how to treat it to provide me the greatest relief from pain. I get such GREAT relief from his massage and exercises that are tuned specifically to my exact problem. When I recently had a torn meniscus, he was able to adapt my exercise routine to continue to bring relief to my back, while compensating for my knee. And now that I am also recovering from the meniscus repair, and under his therapy for this issue too, my recovery has been expedited so I am able to walk again, without pain, in a very short time.
Thanks for providing the care and expertise you do. I can strongly recommend California Therapy Solutions as a solution to anyone with serious pain.

"In November of 2015 it was necessary to undergo knee replacement surgery which has an intense recovery process. Each step of the recovery takes self determination and the proper professional support to accomplish each goal successfully.
I found that kind of support at California Therapy Solutions on 17th St in Costa Mesa, led by Dr. Christina Howard. Each session began with questions and a discussion of how you did the week prior. Actually caring for my well being as a person gave me encouragement that we could work through this difficult process. If certain physical treatments were not working, there was no hesitation to change things up and move on to a different technique.
At times, discouragement would set in regarding my progress, but was soon forgotten due to the encouragement and support received.
Today, if you were to watch me walk down the street or ride my bike, there would be no way you would know of the surgery. The transformation from where I began to where I am today is amazing.
Monday will be my last session and it comes with mixed emotions. I am pleased with the progress and the ability to live a normal life. But on the other hand, it will be difficult to say goodbye to the staff which helped me through some difficult times and made such an impact on my life.
