I am very grateful to be able to be pain-free and back to being active again!
Nine months after Surgery for a spinal fusion L4/L5 I was still experiencing pain that was curtailing my ability to be as active as I like to be. My physician assistant from the neuorosurgery that I attend recommended that I make an appointment with Advantage Physical Therapy as they had previously helped many of her patients recover well from their surgeries.
Upon meeting Ron and his staff I immediately felt very comfortable with my initial consultation and felt that with a regime of dry needling and pool therapy that I would finally feel some relief. I am very happy to report that within a month of treatment I felt some immediate improvement and was able to increase my exercise level by at least 50 percent without increased pain. I loved walking and gradually running on the treadmill in the pool and doing my exercises in the water along with dry needling. By three months of treatment, I was pain-free and had a greater range of mobility.
I cannot begin to even express how thankful I am for the treatment that I received from Ron, Estee, and their staff. I always felt extremely comfortable asking questions and receiving great advice. One of the things about Ron and Estee that impressed me is that they truly care about their patients and if they feel someone else may be able to help them in another town or city or in a different field of therapy they make great recommendations.
I also love the fact that you can make appointments without a referral from a Physician and they are very accommodating about fitting you in as soon as possible. To say that I am a fan of Ron, Estee and their staff would be an understatement! I am very grateful to be able to be pain free and back to being active again!
I have also recommended Advantage Physical Therapy to several friends and I know that they have both been extremely happy with the great level of care that they have received. It is always comforting to know that in the future that if I need further treatment that I can always call and ask a question or make an appointment and will always receive great treatment!

I always felt that they had my best interest and helping me achieve my goals in mind.
Fantastic. Ron, Este, Christy and crew provide great services in a comfortable environment. I always felt that they had my best interest and helping me achieve my goals in mind. They took the time to educate me so I could continue progress on my own. Much more one to one attention than a large scale PT operation. I highly recommend APT to anyone needing physical therapy.
- Ben H.

The owners are always there to make you feel at ease which is always a plus for me.
I had a fantastic experience here at Advantage Physical Therapy. The owners are always there to make you feel at ease which is always a plus for me. Some owners don’t even show up to their own practice. So kudos to them. I would advise anyone to come here. Great place!

After the first treatment my elbow felt pretty close to normal again. After one more treatment I was good to go.
My elbow was bothering me to the point it was keeping me from sleeping. A buddy told me to let Ron at Advantage PT take a look at it. Since I had already had tried heat, ice, rest and that Copperfit Sleeve you see on TV (BTW, it doesn’t work) I thought I would give it a shot.
Ron did a full evaluation and described a course of treatment called dry needling (kinda like acupuncture with electronic pulses). I was a little skeptical but after the first treatment my elbow felt pretty close to normal again. After one more treatment I was good to go.
Nice to find a professional who seems to genuinely want his patients to get back to normal ASAP. Highly recommend.

I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a top flight physical therapy clinic.
I’ve been treated by Ron and Estee at Advantage Physical therapy off and on for the last few years. I suffer from tennis elbow and tendinitis in my shoulder from weight lifting. I went to another physical therapy clinic before finding Advantage and my results were not nearly as good. Ron and Estee will work with you and find a plan that works for you. If I have a flare up they’re more than happy to work my into their busy schedule to get me back on the right track. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a top flight physical therapy clinic.
- Ryan S.
I couldn't be more pleased with my results and they made PT fun.
Everyone was caring, skilled, kind, and wonderful to work with. I was hesitant to do physical therapy after breaking my foot because I wasn’t sure how I would work it into my busy schedule. But it was worth every minute. They helped me regain my strength and function and significantly decreased the pain and discomfort I was experiencing through challenging and thoughtful therapy. I couldn’t be more pleased with my results and they made PT fun. Jacob and Spencer worked with me most frequently and were fantastic, but my experience with everyone on the team was positive. I would highly recommend Advantage.

If you’re looking for treatment, look no further. This clinic will take care of you.
Ron, Estee and Jacob are excellent physical therapist. Truly professional. I was treated for a rotator cuff injury. They used dry needling, stretches and light exercise to get me able to return to the gym within 4 weeks. The techs in the clinic are just as great to work with. If you’re looking for treatment, look no further. This clinic will take care of you.

Advantage PT has taken me from having lower back epidural injections, nerve blocks and taking narcotics to drug-free, minimal lower back pain in a very short time!
Advantage PT has taken me from having lower back epidural injections, nerve blocks and taking narcotics to drug-free, minimal lower back pain in a very short time! The only reason I have to say ‘minimal lower back pain’ is because I’ve only had a couple of weeks of therapy but I fully believe I will be totally pain-free by the end of my physical therapy. Saying thank you does not capture the gratitude I feel for Advantage P.T. and their team of professionals. You cannot find a better facility in Ohio or Kentucky that will help you more than Advantage.
- Paula D.
It was by far the best therapy environment I have had the pleasure of benefiting from.
Thanks so much to Ron and the team at Advantage PT! It was by far the best therapy environment I have had the pleasure of benefiting from. From the start, you guys all demonstrated a caring and highly personalized approach to my healing. I am a convert to the cautious but aggressive style of rehabbing an injury, not just from my own results but also from watching your persistence with other patients and seeing how well people responded to your methods. Thanks also to Brian, Andrew, and Jacob for assisting me personally. Great family feeling.
- Peter K.
They are knowledgeable, professional and personable. They treat you like family.
I have been to other physical therapists and none compare to the owners Ron, Estee and their staff at Advantage Physical Therapy. They helped me with my lower back after a rhizotomy. They are knowledgeable, professional and personable. They treat you like family. I definitely will go to them for all of my physical therapy needs.

Many THANKS to the staff and owners at Advance Osteopractic Physical Therapy.
I am 56 years old man and had a shoulder injury. The staff at AOPT had me back to my full working ability in a very short time, and by the way I am a package jockey for a major carrier, that uses big white trucks, so my shoulder being 100 percent was very important. Many THANKS to the staff and owners at Advance Osteopractic Physical Therapy.

I can now say that my shoulder is back to full strength and could not be happier.
I hurt my shoulder pretty badly to a point where I had little to no movement in my arm. After speaking with my doctor to ultimately find out I had a torn tendon in my shoulder, I was instructed to rehab my arm through physical therapy. I spoke to numerous people and browsed online to find the best physical therapy location, but I had to look no further than AOPT. Ron and his staff are extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Ron took the time to sit down and speak with me about the nature of my injury. After doing so, he developed a plan to work out and strengthen my shoulder back to 100%. I worked with numerous staff members throughout my time at AOPT, and each one of them helped to ensure I was completing the proper excises and getting my necessary treatment. I can now say that my shoulder is back to full strength and could not be happier. I will continue to keep a strong relationship with Ron and his staff and should I suffer another injury, I will know exactly where to go. I strongly recommend AOPT for any Physical Therapy treatment you may need!

In less than 4 weeks I am SIGNIFICANTLY better and it's all because they truly care about your progress here and are super knowledgeable.
I had a rotator cuff and labrum repair on my shoulder and had somewhat of a frozen shoulder when I came in to AOPT. Dr. Ron immediately asked me what my goals were and knew I was currently still working and needed to get back to full function. In less than 4 weeks I am SIGNIFICANTLY better and it’s all because they truly care about your progress here and are super knowledgeable. The staff is great and the atmosphere is relaxing. After being to three different physical therapists, Dr. Ron really knows his stuff and truly is the best. If you’re debating where to go, stop reading reviews and trust that they are the best! I don’t give reviews unless I truly believe they deserve it and if there was 10 stars i’d give it!

I am a huge fan of Advantage Physical Therapy! Ron and Estee are great physical therapists that have helped me tremendously to be able to live my life with less pain. One of the things that I think is so great about their practice is that they don’t just treat you for the short term, but they give you the means to continue to improve your quality of life over time. I count Ron and Estee, and all of the Advantage Physical Therapy staff as a blessing in my life!

I have highly recommended Advantage Physical Therapy to many and will continue to do so:).
I have used Advantage Physical Therapy twice in the last six months for two different issues. The staff is professional, courteous, and they just make it a joy to go to. The knowledge base of the owners, Ron and Estee, is impressive and extensive. I so appreciate the alternative treatments such as dry needling and spinal manipulation, as well as, the traditional PT treatments, and to receive it all under one roof is a huge bonus and definite convenience. I have highly recommended Advantage Physical Therapy to many and will continue to do so:).
- Robin B.
I‘m a patient for life!
I first came to Estee for rehab after shoulder surgery. She did an amazing job! After the second shoulder surgery and subsequent rehabilitation with Estee, (she was instrumental in finding another tear in the rotator cuff), I progressed wonderfully! I have been a patient now for several years for various issues. Ron took over my care once they purchased Advantage Physical Therapy and he has worked miracles! I had neck pain from a significant multi-level cervical fusion, and after one session of dry needling, I was pain-free. Now I‘m a patient for life!
- Myrna D.
We’ve come to realize there are times when the PT route is the better choice.
Sherry and I would like to thank you and your staff for the excellent treatment we both received when visiting your facilities. We were particularly impressed with the warm welcome we received, the professionalism of the treatments, and the genuine concern expressed by you and your associates.
This is the first time we’ve sought PT before consulting our family doctor, and we’ve come to realize there are times when the PT route is the better choice. Going back to the time when I broke my shoulder and Sherry was having balance problems, we’ve come to trust your judgment and your treatment recommendations completely.
Thank you for taking such good care of us. We wish you the best in your future!
- Bob and Sherry H.
I am quite happy with my decision, and I would not hesitate to recommend Advantage Physical Therapy to any of my friends, family, or colleagues.
I was fortunate enough to see Ron and Estee’s practice firsthand as a Physical Therapy student before ever choosing Advantage as a patient following my ACL repair. Ron and Estee work tirelessly to advance their knowledge beyond that of an average physical therapist, and this advanced knowledge is evident in their daily practice. Their commitment to evidence-based practice and patient-centered practice are two of the many reasons that Advantage was the first practice I thought of when I needed physical therapy, and Ron and Estee have advanced their education even further since I saw them last year. I am quite happy with my decision, and I would not hesitate to recommend Advantage Physical Therapy to any of my friends, family, or colleagues. Their fellowship training in orthopedic manual therapy techniques are second to none and I am happy to have been associated with them as a student and patient.

Thank you all so much for keeping an old Army Colonel feeling younger and more active!
I, Col. Bob Waller (age 80), have been in excellent shape the majority of my life. I have played college and military football and have been an active athlete. As I have aged, arthritis has attacked my body leaving me to the point I could barely walk due to severe low back, hip, knee, and ankle pain. I have been advised surgery is the option for me to get better, but I chose another route. I was referred to Advantage Physical Therapy to try conservative treatment. I have been doing aquatic therapy 3x/ week including walking on their underwater treadmill, and this group of therapists have made more of a positive impact on my mobility, pain levels, and general function than any place I have ever been. They have kept me out of surgery and I attribute my longevity and improved life quality to Ron, Estee, Christy, and the staff at Advantage. I know my arthritis is not going to improve, but they keep me moving and feeling younger than when I first began therapy here. I believe I owe my ongoing mobility, energy levels, and overall positive health to the staff at Advantage Physical Therapy, and I highly recommend them to everyone I know suffering from debilitation arthritis, balance issues, general weakness, and debility. Thank you all so much for keeping an old Army Colonel feeling younger and more active!

I truly admire Ron and Estee for their quality of care, great problem solving, and the friendliness of their of their wonderful staff.
Many years ago I was told by my doctor after having rotator cuff surgery that I was to go for PT and that I should be under Estee Saylor’s supervision. My experience was great and to this day I have to remember which shoulder it was that I had surgery and PT on.
Since that time I have followed Ron and Estee for PT on my lower back, post-op knee surgery, and ankle injury. I sincerely do not believe that I could have gotten better care anywhere– my results have returned to my “pre-problem” status. Actually, my results have been beyond excellent.
I truly admire Ron and Estee for their quality of care, great problem solving, and the friendliness of their of their wonderful staff. I have been so fortunate to have been introduced to such wonderful, more than competent people. As a bonus Estee does enjoy training and I have been lucky enough to train with her. She has had an uncanny knack for keeping my osteo-arthritis manageable. Her deep knowledge of physical therapy has been a blessing that has allowed me to continue living a productive and highly functional life. I cannot recommend these good people enough for both physical therapy and training.

I speak from personal experience when I say that these good people far exceeded any of my expectations along all three dimensions.
I want to tell you how good the people at Advantage Physical Therapy are. As a physician I think of competence, communication, and compassion as essential elements in treating people for medical problems. I speak from personal experience when I say that these good people far exceeded any of my expectations along all three dimensions.
I’ve also recommended them to other people I’ve met who were in need of therapy, and I’ve had nothing but glowing reports back from these friends. Thus, both from personal experience, as well as good friends’ experiences, I can give a loud and heartfelt endorsement of these able, compassionate, and good people for anyone who is in need of their services.
