“After dislocating my knee, tearing multiple ligaments, and fracturing my Tibia playing tackle football, it seemed like everyone told me my career as an athlete was over. Eight months and 2 surgeries later, not only do I have full flexion in my knee, I am also back in my cleats on the field. I owe it all to the staff at Saylor Physical Therapy. Many Thanks!!!! ”

"The entire staff at Saylor PT in Palm Beach Gardens delivers outstanding service. I had the great pleasure to work on my shoulder physical therapy with Jenna Mattatall who was amazing, providing great hands-on therapy as well as on-site flexibility & strengthening activities and direction for at-home activities. She has a great attitude coupled with extensive knowledge and experience. Anyone who gets to work with Jenna is in fantastic hands!"
L Boogie. - Palm Beach
"Having experienced physical therapy at other locations in Michigan and Florida, I did not want to repeat the "mass production" feel of sharing a therapist and a prescribed set of exercises used for all patients. Saylor employs one therapist for each client, tailoring the treatment to the individual. Additionally, each therapist has his/her own treatment room, so the privacy is ideal. The main room is spacious and well-equipped, and it has never been over-crowded. My therapist, Mariah, was dedicated to figuring out how to help me, and she did a great job. She is skilled and has a warm, caring personality. I'm very appreciative of her help. The office staff is friendly and efficient, greeting each client upon entering and leaving. Saylor is 5-star in my opinion."
