• I was doing one of our workouts at Richmond, the last ‘finisher’ was skiers. About 30 seconds in I went to jump and twist and at that moment I heard something pop in my lower back. Throughout my sports career, I have sustained many injuries and this was one of them coming back and letting me know that it was still there. In the last 2 weeks I have been almost useless, it took me a good 5 minutes to go from a sitting position to be able to stand straight up. I could barely dress myself let. Hell, lacing my own shoes was a daunting task. Per usual I tried to tough it out and after 10 plus days I decided that I’m not going to be stubborn any longer. It wasn’t getting any better on its own. So I decided to see our very own Chris Gerhardt at his HealthQuest location here in Richmond. I will say that prior to this I’ve only had 1 other encounter with a physical therapist. It was for this very same injury when it first happened over 10 years ago during a football game. To say the least I didn’t have a great experience. So this time around my expectations weren’t all that high, but I was bit desperate at this point. I went and seen Chris yesterday, thankfully he was able to take me in last minute. I spent about 45 minutes with him while he did his assessments and manipulations on me. I even let him do what’s called ‘dry needling’ on me. Similar to acupuncture but different. With those combinations, my back feels better today than it has in the last 2 weeks. I can actually walk around like a normal human being. My pain level is about a 2 compared to it being a 6-7 just yesterday. If you’re experiencing back pain, or any kind of pain for that matter you should go see Chris! He’s very knowledgeable and can probably help with whatever you’re experiencing.

  • Close to home, spotless, clean and flexible hours. The staff is really nice! Nick, the physical therapist (and owner) has provided excellent care! During physical therapy, I started at a lower level due to my injury and once I was ready physically, my exercises were increased appropriately. With my injury, a little discomfort was expected for me to get back to my normal self but Nick has a great understanding of how far to challenge me. Nick is always asking how I’m feeling after the last visit and proceeds with therapy depending on how I was feeling. From when I started to the present time, I have seen a great deal of difference in my mobility and function. I still have a ways to go but I am confident I will get there with Nick & his team helping speed up my recovery.

  • If you are looking for physical therapy, stop looking, this is where you NEED to go! I learned about this location from a friend of mine who had been here, as he had so many good things to say. I took his advice and started my physical therapy for both my knee and shoulder. I cannot express enough how satisfied I am with Nick (Physical Therapist) and his staff. First of all, Nick’s knowledge and understanding of the body and how to heal is incredible. He was very thorough in his diagnosis, and in developing a treatment plan that was custom-tailored to my condition. Next, I will tell you that I can without a doubt say Nick is one of the nicest people I have ever met. He has a personality that is friendly, customer-first oriented, and just overall good, honest and real person. After spending three weeks of treatment, my range of motion has improved as well as my condition. Stop looking at more google reviews and go here, it’s top-notch service, with great staff and expertise. Thanks for the great experience!

  • I would highly recommend HealthQuest Physical Therapy of Clarkston! Jamie was wonderful to work with and helped me regain the ability to complete my day-to-day tasks and return to the gym without pain. Nicole is an amazing technician and without her positivity and efficiency, I wouldn’t be where I am today! I am grateful for the experience I had at HealthQuest.

  • Thank You Nicole @ HealthQuest for Fixing Me!! I truly can’t thank you enough for treating me over the last 10 months. I walked into HealthQuest Chesterfield in excruciating pain in my right hip. From day one Nicole knew what I needed to be treated for.. Even when the radiologist missed the tear in my labrum and the bone spur that was irritating my hip, Nicole knew that something more was going on and she referred me to the best hip specialist in Michigan. Nicole took the time to listen, she addressed my concerns and helped me stay focused to get to the Finishline of my treatment. Thank you to the staff at HealthQuest physical therapy for being so professional, friendly and knowledgeable. I appreciate you…

  • As a college athlete I loved working with the staff here, and I am very thankful for their diligence in creating a plan to help me achieve my athletics goals for the upcoming school year. The office manager was very helpful and attentive when scheduling appointments, and worked around my hectic schedule very well. After being sidelined due to injuries for most of last year I am very hopeful that this next one will be injury free, and that I will be able to have a great senior year! My therapists made therapy a very fun and enjoyable experience for me with their outgoing personalities. I would recommend them to anyone in need of treatment and will honestly miss the time I spent with them.

  • A friend of mine, who is a physical therapist herself, said that “if you are a Physical Therapist in need of physical rehab, this where you go” and I can see why. Outstanding personal attention, incredible knowledge and a level of caring that is almost extinct in today’s “churn to earn” world. Steve is the best you can do.

  • I fell and broke my arm. The break was so bad and we were not sure if I’d be able to use my arm again! As an independent senior, I wasn’t able to drive let alone do my daily chores. During therapy, my therapist invented an exercise (with a stool) to help me get back to driving and after a couple months, I can not only drive but I can fully use my arm again!

  • After getting a new hip, I knew where to come for rehabilitation! My jersey is up on the wall with so many other great athletes! I highly recommend anyone looking to recover from an injury to come here! Thanks to Ryan and his awesome staff!

  • I had a DOUBLE KNEE REPLACEMENT and after a couple months, I was able to hike in the RAIN FOREST in Costa Rica! I wouldn’t be able to do it without the help of the awesome HQPT team in Lake Orion!

    Before HQPT I had constant lower back pain every day. Motrin 800 would barely touch it. I always knew I had scoliosis but, I never knew simple exercises would take my pain away. Every visit was extremely helpful and educational. Never pushed me too far but always just enough. If my pain ever comes back or I ever have other issues, I will come back to Richmond HQPT. Thank you!

    Before I started therapy I needed a walker. I could not go up steps and had general muscle weakness. After four weeks of therapy I can walk without pain. I am VERY SATISFIED with the progress I have made. Sarah was an excellent physical therapist and did a great job!

  • I came in with a lot of pain in my right shoulder that was affecting my job and quality of life. After physical therapy three times a week with Sheri for four weeks I feel great. I play golf with no pain now and can have a pain free work day. Thanks HealthQuest, Especially Sherri.

    Mike L., Clarkston MI
  • Over my time here at HQ of Clarkston, I’ve gained back my physical confidence. From having no feeling in most of my leg and no ability to stand, I am back running, jumping, and doing what makes me happy. It has been a major struggle, but I am so thankful for the amazing people here at HealthQuest that not only care about my progress, but my well-being, and mental strength as well. I will always feel at home here. what a terrific place to be!

  • When I first came in for physical therapy, I was unable to do squats, stairs or even walk long distances without pain. Throughout the process I could feel my legs and knees strengthen. Leaving today, I can feel the difference that has been made over the last two months. I feel like I’m at 100%. I can walk, squat and do stairs as far and as long as i want with little to no pain at all.

    Mackenzie H., Clarkston MI
  • Starting physical therapy I could barely walk, sit or stand. I was surprised after the first treatment I felt instant relief. After going through a weekly regiment I continued to gain strength and felt improvement. Towards the end of treatment they helped prepare me for leaving by teaching me exercises for a lifetime of healthy injury free living.

    Ken R., West Bloomfield MI
  • When I first came to in I was very leary of if physical therapy was a waste of time. This is my third session and I have to say I feel 100 percent better. I truly enjoyed my visits here and I would definitely recommend this facility to anyone looking for caring people who will work with you

    Nancy H., Clarkston MI
  • I suffered huge amounts of pain  from a pinched nerve in my back. I went to see a doctor and they referred me here. I loved all the staff! They were so kind and helpful. Thank you for helping me go back to doing the sport I love. I can swim pain free again!

    Riley S., Lake Orion, MI
  • Four months ago I came to HealthQuest discouraged about the high level of pain in my hip, (8 out of 10 most days), plus my mobility and strength were getting worse and worse. After working with Kristen and her team I have regained the strength in my hip and overall mobility. I can enjoy my day to day life and take part in volunteer and church activities that mean a lot to me. What a great team! Thanks to all of you for your help and encouragement.

  • After surgery I thought I would not be able to even my arm for a year. After my 18 visits I feel like I can do anything. My therapist was very attentive and took care of all my needs and questions. I would recommend HealthQuest to anyone who has pain. It works!

    Veronica L., Clinton Twp MI
  • I came to HealthQuest because I was diagnosed with a torn meniscus. I started therapy before surgery which helped in my recovery after. Physical therapy has made my mobility improve. I wasn’t able to walk far or go up and down stairs very well. Now I can go back to my walking routine with very little pain at all!

    Mary G., Chesterfield MI
  • I never thought my shoulder would get better, I’ve been dealing with it for almost a year. After coming here I finally found hope to go back to playing sports again. Today was my last day and my shoulder hasn’t felt better. Thanks to everyone at HealthQuest!

    Kady B., Clinton Twp MI
  • I went from choosing not to play specific sports due to my knee pain– to playing basketball and soccer in recreational leagues again. The building was always clean and the staff is very helpful and knowledgeable. If I need physical therapy in the future, I will definitely come back.

    Nicholas C., Clawson MI
  • At the beginning of my therapy it was very hard for me to run a mile without having shooting pain go throughout my leg. After my therapy I feel so much better and am so surprised how far I’ve come. I am so happy I am able to run without pain and am very grateful!

    Alyson T., Lake Orion MI
  • HealthQuest was an enjoyable experience, the exercises I had to perform were very beneficial. Overtime the effects of my injury have become less and less noticeable. All of the people who work at this fine establishment are so friendly and inviting, it is a pleasure to come here for each and every visit. I highly recommend this place to anyone who has an injury.
