The way she talked and showed was very easy to learn and very useful for moms, such as how to do exercise when you do laundry, cleaning, washing dishes, daily walking, how to sit and do exercise in the right ways. Liz is a very reliable and funny teacher who was really prepared, and her class management was commendable. Her class was well accepted by the other moms.” -Royce Tan Wise

“I am a soccer player and I have been playing soccer all my life. When I was about 33 my knees started hurting , I was wearing braces to deal with the pain but it was getting worse. I was thinking about visiting an orthopedist when I was lucky enough to meet Liz Navarrete. Through physical therapy, she helped me strengthen muscles that helped me alleviate my pain until it finally went away almost completely. Now I am 41 , still playing , no braces , no surgeries!!” -Carlos Torres

“Many years ago, I was experiencing frequent lower back pain.  The pain would shoot down my leg all the way to my calf.  It became more and more frequent and would last for several days to where I had to limp around.  I had visited a chiropractor several times and when that didn’t seem to help the problem, I pretty much just took Tylenol all the time to help with the pain, which was something I did not like to do.  One day I was describing this problem to my friend Liz. I knew she was a physical therapist and figured she would at least be able to know what the problem might be.  She told me that it was probably sciatica pain.  She said that she knew several exercises that would help relieve the pain.  A few days later, I received in the mail from Liz a letter with outlines of three or four simple exercises for sciatica issues.  She had written them out and diagrammed exactly how to do them for a lay person to understand.   The next time I had a flare up of the pain I immediately pulled out her instructions and I felt immediate relief after doing these stretches and exercises! That was probably 10 years ago now.  To this day, I still keep Liz’s letter and instructions handy when I need them (although I have mostly committed them to memory by now!)  Whenever I have flare up I can do these exercises and the pain pretty much goes away quickly.  It has been a game changer for me from the days when I used to struggle for 3-4 days with the pain consistently.  Now the pain goes away in a few minutes after doing these exercises and I no longer have to take pain killers to help with the pain either! I am forever grateful to Liz for taking the time to help me out and pass along her knowledge. She was able to help me tremendously live without chronic pain and I’m sure she has and will do the same for countless others!” -Nathan Hadley

“Liz has been a tremendously helpful resource to me recently. She listened carefully to my description of back spasms and how I was treating myself unsuccessfully for three weeks. Within three days of following her advice I was a new man. I would recommend her to anyone who is in need of a caring and knowledgeable Physical Therapist. My only regret is that I didn’t call her three weeks earlier.” -Vandy Hobbs, Columbia SC

“Liz is knowledgeable, experienced and easy to connect with. I felt like I was transported right into a therapy session!” -Stephanie Kersey

“As a mom it’s sometimes hard to keep my back in mind. Liz provided helpful and easy ways to treat my back kindly. She showed me how to correctly pick things up and do normal household activities that would not strain by back. She was very informative, friendly, and I had fun learning the easy ways of keeping my back in shape.” -Jana Inabinet

“Liz is a superb physical therapist. Not only is she fantastic at her job, she is friendly and makes the session enjoyable and pass by quickly. It only took a few sessions with Liz before I started to see improvements in my hip function and a major decrease in pain.”

“I had been experiencing pain and loss of range of motion in my shoulder for several weeks. I visited my physician who diagnosed it as an inflamed rotator cuff. He gave me anti-inflammatory medication and a set of exercises for the condition.  A short time later, I shared with my friend Liz about my continued discomfort, despite following orders.  Liz offered offered to meet with me to assess how I was progressing. She took time to ask questions, watch my movements and assess my pain level in different positions.  She agreed with the diagnosis, but offered a different set of exercises and a recommendation for an orthotic pillow for my work chair.  The exercises seemed so simple, but after just a few days I could already see improvement.  With commitment to the exercise and use of the pillow, I was completely rehabilitated within a few weeks. I have full range of motion in the shoulder now, but sometimes continue the exercises just for relaxation and tension relief.  I appreciated Liz’s willingness to assist with my problem and I value her judgement and expertise.  She prayed for me too, which is a beautiful bonus!” -Lisa Hobbs
