I have had a great experience at Functional Advantage. The staff, especially Kelly & Erica are amazing! I went there with severe shoulder and bicep pain and believed that the only thing that would fix my problem would be surgery. I had a right rotator cuff repair surgery 2 years ago and I believed that this pain was a rotator cuff tear again on my left shoulder. I was in a lot of pain and limited on what I could do with my left arm, but after almost 8 weeks of therapy I feel great. I can do everything again with my left arm and if I feel a little flare up I do my exercises and get instant relief. I really enjoyed going to therapy because they are so personable and I thoroughly enjoyed talking with them. I was also going through a rough personal experience with a family member and they were so caring and concerned and I always felt so much better after talking with them for that hour. They have helped me tremendously and I highly recommend them to anyone needing physical therapy! And again I say “Thank You!”

After my ankle surgery, getting back on my feet was harder than I thought it would be. A friend recommended Functional Advantage for physical therapy and after my doctor gave me to go ahead... I went. I was able to get an initial appointment the very day I called. Within three visits I was walking better and doing more that I had in a long time. I continued gaining strength and flexibility with each visit and was amazed at how far I was able to go. The Functional Advantage team is wonderful at what they do. The environment is clean and professional and physical therapy was actually fun. I am so motivated now to continue exercising and to keep my ankle (along with the rest of me) strong and healthy. I highly recommend Functional Advantage to anyone in need of physical therapy.

During my 6 weeks of PT at Functional Advantage I worked with therapists Kelly and Erica. Both therapists were thorough and creative in helping me achieve my goals with the pain in my shoulder. They were very personable and caring in providing the right exercise combinations for my therapy. My therapy was successful because of their dedication and commitment. I highly recommend Functional Advantage for your physical therapy needs.

After many weeks of limited activity and often painful movement from a recurring sports injury, a co-worker suggested I see Neil Sauer at Functional Advantage in Freeland for a 'discovery' session. There was no charge for this initial appointment!, and Neil spent a good hour with me evaluating the injured area to determine the what/why/and what's next phase. Physical therapy was recommended, and I went on to work with Neil, Kelly and Erica over the next two months or so on a 2-3 times per week basis. Each and every visit was enjoyable... if you can say that about physical therapy! Neil and his entire staff are knowledgeable, professional and super-friendly. In no time improvement was noticeable and by the end of the the eight weeks I was pain-free and back to all of the physical activities that I enjoy. Additionally, my body is MUCH stronger physically than it was going in, and I am equipped with home exercises that are easily integrated into my regular workout routine to help keep me strong, injury-free and active. Am planning to stay strong!! but will not hesitate at all to see Neil and his staff at the first sign of trouble. This was a top-notch experience from beginning to end- THANK YOU Neil, Kelly, Erica, Lauren, Jaeland and McKaely

If you are in need of truly top-notch Physical Therapy, I highly recommend stopping by Functional Advantage in Freeland and meeting with my new friends Neil Sauer and Erica Moeller.Not only did Neil help me deal with problems that were causing me a great deal of pain but he would go the extra mile and teach me what I needed to know to prevent them in the future. I now know some of the bad habits of the past that led me to the situation I was in and exactly how to correct them in the future.For example on my very first visit after learning of the amount of time I spend driving in my car, Neil took the time to go out to my vehicle and show me how to properly adjust my sitting position.As a person Neil was a pleasure to deal with. I truly enjoyed his company while I was there. I found him to be kind, thoughtful, professional and very thorough.

I had major back surgery in Jan 17. My therapy was to walk. With more walking , my right knee began to be a problem again. (I had knee surgery a year and a half ago). My doctor recommended therapy. Since Neil had worked on my shoulders previously with great results, and he had set up Functional Advantage in Freeland (about 3 1/2 miles from my house), I decided to go to Functional Advantage for my knee therapy. In evaluating my situation, Neil identified some additional problems with the way I walked because of the knee and back surgeries. So my therapy not only focused on strengthening my knee, but also on trying to correct the difficulties I had with walking. I went to therapy for about 8 weeks. I was pleased with my progress. In one walking test, I showed a 100% improvement. I still have some issues with my legs, and Neil prescribed some exercises to address those issues. Erica also was also my therapist. I found Neil and Erica to be very knowledgeable, personal and professional. I am very pleased with the results of my therapy and would highly recommend Functional Advantage to anyone needing therapy. The atmosphere at Functional Advantage is personally focused such that I always looked forward to my therapy sessions.

I went to Functional Advantage after having Achilles tendon surgery to repair a rupture. Neil helped me regain a lot of range of motion back and had me able to walk/drive in no time. This is a top notch clinic with a knowledgeable/caring staff. If you are looking for an amazing physical therapist who combines hands on (manual work) with therapeutic exercise, Functional Advantage is the place to go.

I contacted Neil at my son's recommendation. He had just finished PT a few weeks before I started and continues to be motivated by the advice Neil gave him. My experience was a positive one as well. Neil is personable, professional and motivating. I finished PT much stronger overall than before my injury and with the knowledge, tools and encouragement to continue to work at home. I have recommended FunctionalAdvantage to people and will continue to do so.

When I decided to have both knees replaced at the same time, I knew that I'd be relying heavily on physical therapy to get me back on my feet. Neil Sauer at Functional Advantage was recommended to me and I'm so glad I listened. Functional Advantage is a nice facility and Neil is a terrific physical therapist. After only 2 1/2 months since my surgery, I'm getting around really well and I'm even back to playing golf! I also liked the fact that Neil is the only P.T. at Functional Advantage and I didn't have to adjust to other therapists when I showed up for my sessions. Neil is very capable and has the right disposition for this type of work. I highly recommend him. (From Rich Morrissey)

I highly recommend Neil Sauer, DPT. Prior to attending Physical Therapy at FUNCTIONAL ADVANTAGE, I had chronic low back pain for over 10 years. Deciding I needed to do something about this pain, I went to a specialist whom personal referred Neil as my therapist. My experience was life changing. Neil not only gave me the one-on-one attention each and every session, thus making certain I was properly executing each task, he also taught me life skills on how to best keep my back strong while working at home and in my horse barn. He is definitely an asset to our medical community!!

Working with Neil was an all around excellent experience! Not only is he highly skilled and intelligent from a PT perspective, but he's also great with patient interaction. I never felt as if going to therapy was a chore, as I looked forward to not only feeling better physically but to hanging out with Neil.I would highly recommend his services to customers of any age, with any ailment. Hands down one of the best therapy experiences I've ever had.Thanks Neil!

Today is my last day of therapy Neil Sauer did a wonderful job getting me the use of my shoulder back I still have to strengthening to do. But I can do that. I'm going to miss it a little. Neil has a great sense of humor so it was fun. If anyone needs a physical therapist. I would highly recommend you going to see Neil Sauer at Functional Advantage in Freeland.

Functional Advantage has been the most effective PT clinic I have experienced. The one on one and undivided attention from Neil greatly improved my rate of recovery and flexibility. Having Neil explain the "what a why's" of each exercise as well as watching/instructing/correcting each exercise sets this clinic apart from others that I have used. Neil also documented an easy to follow at list of home exercises for in-between visits and an after care regimen. The clinic very clean and spacious, giving me the ability to walk around after a set of exercises. I would very much recommend Functional Advantage for anyone with pre/post surgery PT needs, or anyone with the desire to improve flexibility.

My experience at Functional Advantage was great. I felt more motivated and was more comfortable than at any other physical therapist that I have seen. It is a very professional environment and would highly recommend it to anybody looking for therapy. It is definitely the place that I would use again.

I was a client of Functional Advantage during the summer months of 2015. I found the experience to be extremely rewarding, pleasant and immensely helpful. Neil Sauer is very professional and accommodating in his approach to physical therapy. He is very knowledgeable about how the human body works, and how to maintain and improve its movement. The clinic is fully functional, pleasant and clean. I highly recommend Functional Advantage for your next physical therapy needs. You will be highly satisfied.
