Jameer Nelson

Sports Broadcaster, NBA All-Star

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.


Alberto Robayo

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.


Robby Andrews

Professional runner, Olympic athlete

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.


Ryan Hurst

Co-owner and program director GMB Fitness; holds black belts in Kendo, Judo, Kempo, and purple belt in BJJ

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’ve been seen by both JJ & Eric and both of them are equally knowledgeable, empathetic and excellent at their work with dry needling.

This is the place to go if you’re an athlete or injuries that have been bothering that you’ve never taken care of. Eric is super knowledgeable and highly skilled. I can’t wait to see him again

Update 4/6: I had my second in person session today. He’s still the best. It’s so nice to finally work with someone that knows what they’re doing. Eric is smart, confident, competent and knowledgeable. He takes a great functional approach to rehab that is so hard to find. First he put me on a 6 week exercise program after just a FaceTime call and exchange of messages. After that program I had already felt significant progress. I was then able to see him in person for an assessment and dry needling. I left feeling better immediately. I’m so excited to continue working with him and finally correct the issues from a 2+ year old injury. Highly recommend seeing Eric and his team for treatment.

I had dry needling done on my very painful/stiff frozen shoulder. I don't fully understand the science on how it, BUT IT WORKS!! My range of motion improved greatly after 1 session. I was honest to God in shock when Eric rechecked my range of motion after the dry needling. Absolutely amazing!! Thank you so much, Primal!!

Eric was extremely thorough and knowledgeable! I was struggling with hip bursitis and Eric was able to loosen/manipulate the hip socket and dry needle the area. My range of motion has already improved and I just had my first visit this morning. Highly recommend!

Eric explained everything clearly and thoroughly. He gave me my diagnosis respectfully and in a matter of fact way that helped me feel optimistic on the way out of my appointment.
