I visited Breaking Through recently for shoulder and knee pain I had been experiencing. I’ve had an issue with my knee for years and have done PT and cortisone shots in the past. The shoulder was a newer issue.
Evan did a thorough exam. He not only listened to the issues I shared but also helped me to understand connections within my body that were causing both issues.
The exercises he has taught me were different than what I’ve done in the past but they made sense and were easy to incorporate into my day.
I’m still going through the therapy process now, but the increased strength and mobility in my knee and shoulder has been incredible. I’m not experiencing much pain anymore and I’m on track to finish up soon.
Evan and the entire Breaking Through staff are great and super helpful. They do things a little different than I’ve experienced in the past and the thoughtfulness put into their practices has made all the difference.
Staff at Breaking Through was excellent. Really went through a head to toe workup to identify imbalances that was causing pain in my shoulders to the point that everyday tasks were excruciating. After a couple sessions and going through the exercises and regime they prescribed pain levels reduced greatly and range of motion increased greatly. Highly recommend giving Evan and his staff a shot if you're having issues with pain and nothing seems to work.
Josh is the best!
First of all the excellent people here at Breaking Through are the reason I'm even able to write this review now. In January of 2023 I suffered an "insignificant stroke" during heart surgery leaving me without use of my right (dominant) arm. I was given putty and foam blocks to use in my hand. I was told my arm would either come back or not, no one knows. My mother new of the system they use here at Breaking Through and we called them. They brought me in right away and gave me a good feeling. Josh and Evan told me right away we may not get results with a stroke and if I let them assess me they would give me the best treatment program they could. After my first visit I had noticeable results, I could lift my arm nearly to my shoulder! Evan has been fantastic in both therapy and teaching me how to do things on my own to maintain my recovery path. He really tailors the treatment to exactly what I need for each individual session. Extremely capable and knowledgeable also listens to you and cares how you feel about the treatments. I still have obstacles to overcome to reach 100 percent recovery. Evan is still working with me only know on smaller details like being able to write legibly again. This is a place where they genuinely care about you and follow through with your progress and recovery. Evan has also made sure I always have work to do at home in addition to our sessions and for the long term as well.
IF YOU NEED PT YOU NEED BREAKING THROUGHT!!!!!
I will enthusiastically recommend them to friends and family in need. They have made an impact on my life I won't ever forget.

I’ve been having shoulder pain for over two years. It was preventing me from doing things in my daily life that I had done for years. I saw an orthopedic doctor, I went to endless physical therapists, I tried PRP injections, I tried dry needling and many other things. Nothing was helping. After 4-5 sessions with Evan, I’m close to pain free.
I’m able to do more with my workouts already and I’m confident that we’re headed to 100%. You can really tell he cares and will not quit until he finds the root of the issue. The best part is that he’s taught me how to treat the small stuff myself so that when I’m fully healed I can prevent it from getting bad ever again. Would recommend to all family and friends moving forward.
Truly a great experience here.
I had been dealing with foot pain for 3-4 months that never seemed to get better, and it was keeping me from doing all of the activities I enjoyed- playing soccer, hiking, running. I knew I had to do something about it, because everything I tried (support, kt tape, you name it) wasn't helping. I was referred by a family member to Breaking Through and started visiting. During my first session, Evan took great care in understanding the causes of my pain and gave me a number of exercises for homework to do regularly based on how my body responded throughout the session.
I followed his instructions, and each week I came back to follow up, I felt more and more encouraged to find my foot pain was finally improving, and quickly. After a few great sessions with Evan, I was back to playing soccer. I still do the exercises Evan instructed me on, and I even changed my everyday shoes up based on Evan's advice.
Now I'm going on daily walks and jogs, and I'm back to playing and enjoying soccer again. I couldn't be happier, and I owe it all to the fantastic work and guidance that Evan provided. I would recommend this place to anybody with pain keeping them from doing the things they love. These people know what they're doing and I know first-hand that they can get you back out there. Huge thanks to Evan and the rest of the team!
Thank you Jennifer! I am grateful to know someone like you who cares so much about your patients and family! I can’t wait to be able to do my brain training! Thank you so much Jennifer!
Evan has done an amazing job. I can now squat lower than I have in 30 years. I do a lot of overhead sports with tennis and throwing and my shoulder hasn’t felt this good in years, even though I am serving ALOT!!
Josh is a phenomenal therapist! He has been working with our kids for over 15 years. He has a great ability to motivate our kids through his pleasant demeanor and, most importantly, his patience. He thinks outside the box and is always searching for new ways to work with our kids to improve their lives. He also goes above and beyond by not only being an outstanding therapist, but assisting in the assessment and maintenance of our kids' chairs and other equipment. Thank you so much Josh!
Jen and Josh are absolute angels. I took my son here for physical therapy after a broken femur. He was very nervous about the appointment and josh made him feel comfortable right away and let him know what he would be doing step by step whiched helped ease his anxiety. My son has improved so much since his appointment. I would suggest this place to anyone! Thank you for helping my son!
