Success Story: “When Dr. Rosen suggested that I come here instead of going back to the previous physical therapy company that I had gone to, I was skeptical. The previous one had been very rough on my right shoulder after my first surgery and then I had to have a second surgery and I knew I did not want to go back to them, so I came to Walker Physical Therapy & Pain Center. Walker PT & Pain Center is a dream come true. They are the absolute cream of the crop in physical therapy. The team followed Dr. Rosen’s directions and created an excellent program for me.
