“After getting a hand injury while fishing, which is how I make my living, I was referred to TherapySouth for hand therapy. Their attention to detail was so impressive and it was obvious they cared. Even though I am finished with therapy they still check on me. I am back to 100% with no pain. It’s like I have a new hand. It was such a great experience at TherapySouth and I would recommend them to anybody.” -Wes L.
