Don't take it from us! Here are some words from just a few of Jim's former patients:
"Jim was great with my shoulder injury. Two different PTs and an MD hadn't really been able to figure out why my shoulder wasn't responding to treatment. Jim was able to quickly figure out what was happening and lay out the right program for me. If I get injured again I'll be back." - D'arcy C.
"I went to see Jim Horn after I was diagnosed with an excruciatingly painful herniated disc in my neck. If anyone would have told me that I would be back to doing the activities I used to do, I wouldn't believe them.
Jim is patient, gentle, and extremely supportive. He puts his heart into his job and takes the time to thoroughly explain everything. He is very attentive, and checks frequently to make sure you are doing the exercises correctly.
Remarkably, even before I completed all of my therapy sessions, I was back to kayaking and paddle boarding, activities I never dreamed I would be able to do again. Jim has given me the tools to continue to improve and live an active lifestyle. He is a superb therapist and a really nice guy." - Sandi S.
"I know I thanked you before, but I cannot thank you enough for getting me healthy after my surgery. You are a great physical therapist - you’re gentle in your approach to therapy, encouraging when I felt like I was not making progress and you were firm and stood your ground when I wanted to increase my activity before I was ready.
Your holistic approach to the initial evaluation, the structured physical therapy visits and the post “graduation” process is very progressive and realistic. Your desire to continually educate yourself and your patients is a testament to your commitment to creating more informed and healthier clients.
To this day, I practice many of the exercises you taught me and know that my body is in better health because of you." - Kendra S.
"Working with Jim was an absolute pleasure. I started working with Jim when I was diagnosed with a hamstring injury in the middle of training for my first marathon. By working with Jim, I was able to confidently toe the starting line, and complete the race. The tools and exercises I did while under his care allowed my to go from not being able to run a mile without pain to running 26.2 miles pain-free. The best part about my experience with Jim was the way in which he was completely invested in my recovery. In addition to explaining the purpose of each rehabilitative exercise and movement, he took time outside of our session to check in with me and assuage me of any concerns I may have expressed. He never lost confidence in my recovery or my ability to return to the activities I loved. Thanks to Jim I continue to run pain-free." - Vanessa G.
"This is the first time I have ever posted a testimonial, but felt it was necessary as Chelsea PT & Rehab is an outstanding facility. Jim (the owner) is not only smart, knowledgeable, and a caring Physical Therapist, but one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, and is completely vested in your overall health and recovery. His has surrounded himself with an amazing staff (Deidra, PT and Nancy, Office Manager) that is a reflection of himself. The positive energy is seamless between everyone who is part of this practice. I’ve had the pleasure of receiving PT from Jim this year, Deidra five years ago for shoulder surgeries (the latest one with serious complications). Even though I have some great PT’s in the office building I work in, I made the trip to Jim’s practice, because of his overall approach and commitment to each patient. Not only does he work closely with your health care professional’s office while creating a treatment plan tailored to your recovery, but will stay in contact with you (even during after-hours if needed) to answer any questions or issues you might run into on your own time. He spends the necessary time on each visit, vetting the recovery process and explaining to you what he is doing and why he might make adjustments to the treatment plan. If you are interested, he strongly believes in empowering you with his knowledge so that not only will it help you heal faster, but then you can use this information to continue great health long after you stop needing PT. He truly cares about your well-being. And as mentioned, it does not stop with him or Deidra. Nancy (the Office Manager) is extremely proactive in making sure everything is in order for you. From contacting your insurance, helping you fill out the forms needed for the first visit, reaching out to the Doctor’s office for clarification if needed, to scheduling your visits. She understands the paperwork side of this business better than most and will not hesitate to deal with the insurance companies to help make the process is as painless as possible for you, all while being friendly and compassionate. And one more thing worth mentioning, Jim backs up his knowledge with degrees from two well-known universities. It is incredible how well he understands the anatomy from a holistic point a view on how the body works as a whole, not just the area of treatment in need of PT. I’ll never be able to truly convey how thankful I am for everything his practice has done for me. I highly recommend his practice, you won’t be disappointed." - Michael L.
