I met Austin after my total knee replacement. His knowledge, skill, and experience guided me through a successful recovery. Since then, Austin has helped me address issues with my other knee, my neck and shoulders, and the lack of strength in my hand grip. The quality of my life has improved with Austin’s care. I recommend him with enthusiasm.
My entire experience at PT180 has been a positive one. My first impression was of the office staff who were welcoming, helpful, and professional. When I began my therapy with Taylor, I had been experiencing a lot of pain – my sciatica and back pain, which was a result of an injury years ago. I could hardly walk to the mailbox without assistance. From the very first session, Taylor set me at ease. He was able to pinpoint my problem areas. His hands-on therapy was very helpful. Taylor was patient in explaining how I needed to do the various exercises and encouraging when I made progress. As a result of the therapy I was given, I can once again move and walk without pain! I intend to continue doing the exercises. I am now taking yoga at the Y, and plan on taking water aerobics. I feel as though I have been given a new lease on life!
I had my second shoulder repair in November of 2021. I’ve been going to Paula Kosberg for years because she is excellent in every way a PT can be. I was introduced to Taylor Williams while Paula was unavailable and have found him to be excellent as well! He has carefully coordinated his treatment with Paula. He listens to me, goes through my exercises, added some, and his hands-on stretching is excellent. I go to him without reservation!
The Sebastian difference: His method, through patient demonstration, renders good body mechanical exercise for healthy form and strength. His innovative physical therapy practice needs to be the go-to exercise for everyone, everyday. This is not over selling his transformational practice. It works and does so rapidly.
My experience with Sheri is probably one of the best I’ve ever had with a massage therapist. I suffered for a long time with fibromyalgia pain and an inflamed bursa, which caused me to stop my power walk. Since seeing Sheri I have started my power walk again (slowly) which makes me very happy.
I can’t say enough about PT180. They have incredible customer service and treat all their patients with care and consideration. Betsy has an enormous amount of knowledge in acupuncture techniques and has been able to ease the pain in my back and shoulder. She is such a wonderful person with a kind heart. And Sheri and her incredible massage therapy for a 1-2 punch in the healing process. I call them the A-team! I highly recommend PT180 to everyone.
You rock! It is great to walk into work and not limp or have to favor my leg. I’m doing my exercises!
Due to various sports injuries that had gone untreated for several years, I had reached a point of constant pain. A friend recommended I see Jill for some hands on physical therapy. Jill and her staff have changed my life! I can once again perform the activities that I enjoy. A visit to PT180 is a soothing experience that I always look forward to. Thank you!
I am profoundly grateful for the physical therapy I have received at PT 180/Jill Thompson Physical Therapy. I literally could not imagine more kind, gentle, or effective therapy for my occasional severe muscle spasms or misaligned joints. These deeply compassionate, experiences therapists are obviously experts in human anatomy and they know how to carefully get to the root cause of the injury, relieve pain and restore function. Their gentle, professional confidence inspires my trusting cooperation in the healing process. Their prescribed therapeutic exercises have proved extremely effective at facilitating healing and preventing future impairment. As a bonus, they are very, very nice people. What more could you ask?
When I came to PT 180 a few months ago with so much back pain I could hardly walk or stand. After working with Paula, my pain decreased dramatically. She was able to guide me in some core strengthening exercises and I could carry on at home to increase deep muscle strength. Paula also noticed other contributors and helped me to notice and strengthen those areas and now I live pain free.
I drive 50 miles round trip from Nampa for my visits to PT 180. I would drive 100! Jill Thompson helps me manage my pain in a way that no other physical therapist has. Additional staff here at PT 180 are also incredible.
Is it convenient to get here from Nampa? No. Is it worth it? YES! Every mile, every minute!
I have been seeing Jill for over 2 years, and I could not have made it through that time as well as I have without Jill’s skilled and experienced touch. I work as a massage therapist and often work quite deeply on my clients. I end up with shoulder, elbow and wrist joints that are somewhat locked up. Seeing Jill every other week has allowed me to free up those joints, and, in fact, whole areas of my body, so that I can work with more ease and less pain. Her work has also allowed me to stay active in the sports that I love, well into my 60’s. Thank you, Jill, so much.
PT 180 is unlike any other clinic I have been to. The therapy is individualized according to your specific needs. The exercises have helped tremendously, but even more the correcting of my gait and movement has been a real eye opener. I wish I had come here sooner but am so excited about overcoming chronic hip and SI pain. My progress has been steady and am now able to walk without pain. I love that they have classes offered here and plan on taking just about all of them.
I have been the recipient of many sports & activity stresses on my body and over the years have visited many chiropractors and pt offices searching for pain relief and healing. For the first time in many years I was completely pain free with good range of motion after several months of treatment. I stayed this way for over 1 year until I was struck from behind in a motor vehicle accident; I knew right where to go and I am on my way back thanks again to PT 180.
For several months, I tried many options in order to gain some relief from excruciating nerve pain and muscle weakness. Three physical therapists in another clinic worked with me, mostly assigning exercises then passively observing (and sometimes not really paying much attention) while I executed them. They also relied on the application of ultrasound and electrical stimulation, then sent me home until the next scheduled visit. My pain and discomfort continued with little relief. My limited experience with physical therapy provided no basis to expect anything more, and my surgeon thought we may have to consider surgery (again). Then, a friend recommended I try massage therapy. For my entire adult life I had always considered massage just a touchy feely form of self-indulgence, but my discomfort motivated me to try it. I found three excellent medical massage therapists, one (and then another) associated with PT 180 in Boise. On their advice, I had my first appointment with Jill Thompson, PT and owner of PT 180. After a thorough and respectful professional examination, Jill assured me there was hope! We began an intensive regimen of physical therapy and massage therapy, supplemented with some acupuncture, integrative manual therapy, and posture and core conditioning. When we started, the therapists could barely touch me without causing intense pain and discomfort. In less than two months and five treatments (the number Jill told me would be necessary to attain real improvements) I was moving well and confidently going about my daily activities much more easily. I now feel better than I have in two decades (and without surgery!). The PT 180 physical and massage therapists have helped me turn my life around and regain the joys of full range of motion and activity! By the way, I rarely put much credence in testimonials such as this one, because I always figured they were exaggerated and self-serving. Not this one. In my experience, the professionals at PT 180 are as good as it gets!
I think of you often and all the things you taught me. I am very grateful for my improved health and good share of that is due to PT180. I wanted to say thanks and let you know the way you touch people’s lives has a lasting impact.
