“I started going to Silvia after I was in a bad car accident with a drunk driver. After a few appointments Silvia had a feeling that I had a ruptured disc in my neck and recommended I get an MRI before we did any more therapy. Once results were back we found out she was correct and able to start working on that specific location. We did electric acupuncture, laser point and ultrasound to make my disc close up and heal quicker. She also did traction on my neck to release pressure and massaged all the muscles that are acting up. Thanks to Silvia I have made a faster than normal recovery even though the disc will never be fully healed. I will go to her for all my therapy needs and recommend her to anyone that needs physical therapy! Her team is fantastic and they are sure to make a great personal connection with all of their clients. I am so thankful I decided to do my therapy at Fort Collins Physical Therapy and will always be grateful for all they have done and will continue to do for me! A big thank you Silvia, Coleen and Kelly!!” – Bethany Brooks

“I was referred by my GP to seek physical therapy for a persistent pain in my hip, knee and leg. My GP originally suggested that my problem had to do with the sciatic nerve. I randomly selected FC PT. There was a thorough evaluation and a set of physical therapies recommended for what was “diagnosed” as bursitis. The results were what one would hope for. The therapist was knowledgeable, professional and very easy to work with. Based upon my experience, I can, without question, recommend FC PT.” – Lee

“My son, 16, recently has had 2 lung ruptures and after 3 chest tubes and 1 major surgery, he’s finally on the road to recovery. His road there unfortunately has been stunted by damaged nerves due to inadequate preparation of surgery/ anesthesia. He came out of surgery with no control of his right hand. The nurses, the surgeon, and even the neurologists really couldn’t give us an accurate reason as to why this happened, OR if it was going to regain movement and sensory in his hand. He was seen briefly by an occupational therapist moments before he was seen by discharge personnel and they gave him a worksheet of exercises along with some silly putty and sent him on his way. After a couple days, I decided to take him to see Silvia, who I had heard about from my friend who told me was a miracle worker. Within 5 minutes of him being in there, she knew exactly which muscle and which group of nerves had been damaged, (which by the way, was wrongly diagnosed by the neurologists) and started working on him. When he walked out of the office, he was gleaming because he finally had answers, he finally could feel and move his fingers. Most importantly, it gave him hope and confidence that he was going to be alright. I can’t thank you enough Silvia! You really ARE a miracle worker!” – Herro Kitty

“The physical therapy which I received from Silvia Sorensen (for major spinal surgery) has been a remarkable success. Silvia and her trained assistants treated me with kindness and thoroughness. I highly recommend Silvia for anyone needing rehab, training and encouragement.” – Roger

“I received treatment at Fort Collins Physical Therapy & Sports Center two times for two different severe ailments. The first time was for a very painful neck injury. Silvia and her assistants treated me and I was back in tip top condition in a couple of months. The second time was for a painful frozen shoulder. My shoulder was so bad I thought I would have to go on disability. I visited several doctors and had expensive tests taken but no real treatment was recommended except physical therapy. I went to the physical therapist my family doctor recommended but it was not Sylvia and my shoulder wasn’t getting better. I finally decided to go to Silvia. Silvia gave me the aggressive treatment I needed. I now have full range of movement and am pain-free. I highly recommend Sylvia and Fort Collins Physical Therapy & Sports Center.” – Mark

“Silvia helped me when no one else could. I had been to another physical therapist, had nine visits with him. He did nothing for me. She helped me with my shoulder and bicep. I fell on the ice and really damaged it. She was AMAZING. I am back to normal and feeling great. Love her office staff, they are fabulous.” – Nancy

“I am so pleased that I met Silvia Sorensen. Our meeting took place in a restroom in an Old Town restaurant. I was beside her at the sinks and saw that she was wearing a stunning necklace. I turn to tell her how lovely it was and she immediately said to me, ‘You have a problem with your neck.’

“I have, over a period of 4-5 years, been to spine surgeons, neurosurgeons, a number of chiropractors, a pain management doctor, and a variety of physical therapy places. I have been told by each of them that I have ‘the worst neck I have ever seen.’ Other PT places have had me doing everything from blowing up balloons to using my neck to pull down a weighted bar. These are definitely inappropriate, useless, and in some cases dangerous treatments for my neck. I don’t think one of them actually used their hands on my neck.

“Since I’ve started to see Silvia, my pain level has decreased significantly. Silvia is a hands-on person. Each time I visit her, she uses alternate machines, which she operates herself because they are complex, and then she uses her hands to work my neck. She’s the only PT I need. She’s totally devoted to her patients.” – Susan

“I first saw Silvia in Amman, Jordan a couple years ago for a shoulder injury after a bad fall. I was treated with injections and pain pills prior to seeing her but was getting worse. Within a few minutes, she diagnosed me to have a full rotator cuff tear and bicep rupture and she ordered an MRI, which confirmed her diagnosis. I had surgery in the U.S. Now I have full function of my shoulder and no pain. A few months ago I injured my back lifting a propane tank. I was told I had a ruptured disc and I needed surgery. I flew to Colorado in February and received extensive therapy for one week from Silvia at her Fort Collins clinic. I’m still doing the exercises she showed me and I have no leg or back pain!! Silvia is the only doctor I trust!!” – Kamel

“I had a serious injury in football. I blew out my knee and had nerve damage. I have had three surgeries and also attended three different physical therapy practices because of the injury. Out of the three practices, I can honestly say that Silvia’s practice was the best! I had quick improvement that impressed my doctor. Time was always lenient while I was there and never rushed. I felt cared for and that everyone knew what they were doing. I will always recommend Silvia. Thanks for everything!” – Nathan
