Client Testimonials

I switched over to Mike Leither at Activo as my physical therapy was progressing very slowly after a bad leg injury. My treatment at Activo was phenomenal – focused, varied, and personally tailored to both my injury and particular pain points. Mike helped me transition from using two crutches to comfortably moving (pain-free) with no crutches in an extremely short amount of time. He is extremely thorough, attentive, and knowledgeable, and he was able to provide me with a variety of home exercises that complemented the focused and hands-on treatment I received at Activo. The facilities are clean and new, and the staff is incredibly friendly. I would absolutely recommend Mike Lither and Activo to anyone looking for first-class care.
