I've played at the highest level and been around some great trainers, PTs, and coaches. I have recently been doing laser treatment at Primal with JJ and she is right at the top and the best of the best as a PT.

Gracie Jiu Jitsu Black Belt, Owner Miloki Flow Jiu Jitsu/Jiu

My livelihood depends on staying injury free, moving efficiently, staying healthy, and being able to rest and sleep well so I can continue to train and teach Jiu Jitsu. Primal has been imperative in helping me achieve these goals.

I have gone to JJ for everything from an achilles tear to a tight shoulder. As a member of the 2016 Track and Field US Olympic Team, I value my health above all else, and there is no one I trust with my body more than JJ and Primal Physical Therapy.

The fact that she is constantly learning new techniques and refining her skills, JJ is simply the best out there. I live in Japan and she has to treat me remotely, she is still the only person that I want working on me. I can't recommend her enough.

I would recommend Primal PT to friends and family. After one session, I received detailed instruction that suited the needs of my body to become stronger. I have been too many PT's in the past. This was the first time I received this type of detailed one on one attention/instruction.

Nothing else was working to alleviate my pain - not chiropractic, accupuncture, massage, yoga, etc. The first day I met Eric he said he knew what was wrong and was confident he could treat the issue. He was correct. I avoid leaving reviews, but I’ll happily leave this review for Eric.

I took care of patients many years ago and sometimes had to perform surgery. Having said this it wasn’t so long ago that I couldn’t render an opinion. JJ is the perfect combination of clinical expertise and compassion. She will listen to you and get to the root of the problem quickly. Best of all, she’s clinically bright enough to show you compassion and provide the much needed boost to get you healed and on your way. She will never stand in the way of your fitness goals and yet her clinical advice has always been so highly valued. JJ loves what she does and does what she loves. Enough said😊

As an active competitor in BJJ in my late 20s, I understand injuries are going to happen but the team at Primal Physical Therapy have been excellent with getting me back on the mats. I typically work with Eric. He really takes the time to understand my activities and goals to personalize my treatment. He is also extremely knowledgeable of the human anatomy and keeps it real by providing honest feedback throughout my treatment. Overall, it is a great experience to work with their team and I highly recommend checking them out.

Primal is unlike any physical therapy office I’ve ever been to. As athletes themselves, JJ and Eric have the personal experience - in addition to their vast clinical knowledge - to relate to their patients and develop very personalized treatments. For a CrossFit and jiu-jitsu hobbyist, there are no scheduled off-seasons, so I count on Primal to help me stay healthy year round. In addition to being excellent PT’s, JJ and Eric are also great people who I trust wholeheartedly.

Primal Physical Therapy is awesome! Best physical therapy office in the area. I have had many injuries being a professional athlete and Primal PT has helped me recover the fastest and helped keep me out of pain. Months ago I was dealing with a low back injury and thanks to Eric & JJ I am now out of pain. After getting me out of pain they have helped unlock my body and increased my mobility allowing me to achieve a higher level of athleticism. Both Eric & JJ have extensive knowledge of the human body and they both have a heart of gold. They take the time with each patient to assess their situation & address any concerns. Since receiving treatment I have sent many of my friends, family members, and students to Primal Physical Therapy and they all have had an amazing experience. If you are looking for Physical Therapist I would highly recommend JJ & Eric at Primal Physical Therapy.
