Success Stories
  • Leanora helped me to understand what was wrong with my back and how to manage the pain and increase my mobility. No one else really understood or explained anything to me. I can hike again and ride my bike!!!!…

    Jeanne – Howard, Colorado

  • I had full replacements on both of my knees last year and I went to Leanora at Arkansas Valley PT for physical therapy after both surgeries. It was the best decision I could have made. Recovery from a knee replacement is not a quick or painless process under any circumstances but I felt that the physical therapy that I received at Arkansas Valley PT was instrumental in helping me get "back on my feet" and regain full range of motion and functionality of my knees more quickly than either I or my surgeon had anticipated.

You will never regret selecting Leanora and Arkansas Valley PT for your physical therapy needs.…
