Don't just take our word for it, read what our clients say about Pace West PT.
"The Pace West staff is professional and courteous. I have been going there for almost
4 years now and have had nothing but positive experiences. The therapists are qualified, experienced, and knowledgeable. I have made great strides in resolving my injuries thanks to an excellent team at Pace West."
With an incisive understanding of people and the body, Trevor Pace is a gifted healer, whose ever increasing knowledge of techniques, therapies, and exercises have healed me after a traumatic injury, lessened my chronic pain, and allowed me to resume my sporting activities and workout regimes with more rigor than before. Trevor is one of the few Physical Therapists I've seen to give me hope and restore my bodily health. Additionally, he is sensitive, smart, and witty. His intelligence is only matched by his compassion. I've also received similarly attentive care from other Pace West specialists. The reception staff is concerned and very helpful. Pace West is no run of the mill PT clinic, but a truly care-giving practice.
Chris West is an excellent physical therapist. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable about his practice, he is kind and thoughtful and honestly seems to care about the reason you have chosen him to help you. He has been instrumental in my healing process and in providing me with exercises and self-care tips that will help further my treatment results. I would highly recommend Chris as one of the best physical therapists, and dry needlers in particular, that I have found in Boulder.
I met Paul five years ago after the repair of a torn rotator cuff. Four years later I was back for post surgical rehabilitation of the other rotator cuff and am currently a patient for rehabilitation for my neck with almost 80 years of wear and tear. Paul answered all my questions, carefully assessed the situation, and explained to me what our goals would be in the coming weeks. There was never a time that he pushed me too hard, never a time that the rehabilitation aggravated the shoulder or neck, and never a time that I didn’t look forward to going in.
I highly value my therapist, Katie, because she has knowledge of body systems and mechanics. She has the ability to analyze what’s wrong with my body and what’s needed. She has the skills that enable her to prescribe the right combination of exercises, stretching, and massage to enable me to build back my strength. Unfortunately, through the last couple years, I’ve had to deal with knee, back, and thorax problems. In every case, she and the entire Pace West staff have been extremely pleasant and helpful in overcoming my problems and navigating access to my insurance benefits.
After a successful post-surgical physical therapy program for my ankle managed by Dr. Trevor Pace, I didn't hesitate to call upon his expertise/service again after severe injury to my shoulder. In my previous experience with Dr. Pace, he demonstrated advanced skills as a diagnostician so I felt completely comfortable going straight to him instead of to my medical doctor. After a thorough examination, Dr. Pace diagnosed my condition and referred me to the most recognized orthopedic shoulder specialist in town. The orthopedic consultation and MRI both confirmed Dr. Pace's initial diagnosis, and to surgery I went. Although Pace West Physical Therapy was not an in-network provider under my insurance plan, they offered a flexible and affordable treatment plan that met my needs. Needless to say I'm back. The cost is reasonable, the care exceptional, and best of all the outcomes are great. Recently, I referred my mother to receive care for a chronic hip problem. Both of us are very satisfied customers. Thanks so much Dr. Pace and the staff at Pace West Physical Therapy.
After I was injured in a gymnastics accident at 17, my life changed dramatically. My years as a gymnast, as well as an active teen were over. I endured chronic piercing pain on an everyday basis. That was until I was referred to the clinicians at Pace West Physical Therapy. Through years of specialized physical therapy with them, I have learned to manage my everyday pain to a livable level. Now, not only can I function like a normal young adult, I can actually live like one. They have helped me take back my life through pain management and corrective physical therapy. I owe everyone at Pace West Physical Therapy a great deal of thanks. Not many people are as fortunate as I to have met such an extraordinary group of talented professionals. I have been lucky enough to call them my friends.
I just wanted to drop a note and again tell you how transformational my experience at Pace West Physical Therapy was. The help you provided went far beyond the simple 'diagnose and treat' model I think we have come to expect from our Health Care Professionals. I am sure you could have diagnosed my problem over the phone, but you took the time to get a sense of my daily routines and find out what might be causing my symptoms with a view to how we might address the cause, as opposed to just fixing the problem. From my first visit, you gave me practical and easily implemented strategies for making small adjustments to my daily routine that have paid huge dividends.
Your approach felt grounded in a sincere commitment to me, your patient. You took the time to show me props and illustrations that gave me a thorough understanding of exactly where my pain was originating and gave me a clear sense of what activities (or lack thereof) might be aggravating my condition. With that knowledge you empowered me to take responsibility for my own well-being in a way that I simply never would have thought of before. All of this was done in a very accessible way, which may be at the heart of your success. After one session I felt conversant in the anatomy of the spinal column and as they say, knowledge is power.
But you didn't stop there. After our first session I had questions and had no trouble reaching you by either phone or email and you took the time to answer me in every possible dimension. But again, you didn't stop there. After my second visit, you followed-up with me to make sure everything was going well. You have raised the bar for what I now expect from health care providers.
Needless to say, my experience with Pace West Physical Therapy has been nothing short of life-changing. After you suggested that sitting at my desk for 12 hours a day may be contributing to disk compression, I got rid of my chair, raised my desk and stood all day instead of sitting. This helped immensely, but I thought, 'what would Trevor do' and decided I could be even more proactive about my health. I mounted a desk to a treadmill and now average 11 miles a day while I work!
My only regret is that I have no need to experience your world-class service anymore! Many thanks from an exceedingly happy customer.
Pace West Physical Therapy is user-friendly. Whereas most healthcare providers seem distracted with one's insurance coverage and scheduling, Pace West Physical Therapy spends its energy caring for its patients. That shows me that the therapists are there to heal, not to collect. Furthermore, the clinic is always a quiet and calm place to visit. This enables treatments to be focused and un-interrupted. I appreciate the dedication and passion the clinicians exemplifies for the physical therapy field. I trust that I am getting the most up-to-date methods of care and the most thorough attention to my needs.
To all the good PT's at Pace West Physical Therapy! Thank you for the excellent assessment/work with my quads and nerve L4-L5. Tingling in my left quad... it's progressively getting better! With your guidance, I am rediscovering swimming and stretching.
I began seeing Trevor Pace with neck pain from what I thought was a bone out of place in the back of my neck. It became sore while I sat for extended periods of time in my office chair, and when I exercised.
During my first visit, Trevor thoroughly diagnosed me with an open mind and took the time to explore all possible causes of the pain. Through professional therapeutic manipulations, he discovered that my hips were not properly aligned. This caused further mal-alignment in my back and neck. Over the period of several visits with Trevor, I began to feel more synchronicity in my body's alignment and felt stronger and more confident with both my sitting and standing postures.
It has been almost a year from the date of my last treatment and I am still, thankfully without discomfort. I owe this to Trevor's therapy and prevention teachings.
A fit and trim woman in her forties is making the bed after she has exercised for an hour. As she pulls up the bedspread, searing pain in her lower back drops her to her knees. While the moral of the story should be 'stop doing housework, it's bad for you,' the truth is this type of low back injury is years and years in the making. Having been diagnosed with a slight tear and disc bulge, as payment for my housework, I began the process of rehabbing, wishing I had a story with more flair that I could tell about my injury!
When I first came to Pace West Physical Therapy, I could not stand up straight. Sitting for more than 20 minutes put my back into spasm. I was not in pain only when I was lying down on ice. In other words I was a real mess. From the first session with the PT onward, I felt relief from not only the exercises and stretches that the PT's did with me, but from the simple 'at home' program that brought me relief during my rehab.
The clinicians have educated themselves beyond the old range-of-motion physical therapy paradigm and utilize cutting edge physical technology specific to disc injuries. Their education combined with a gentle and compassionate demeanor makes for a true healing experience.
I am that young woman. Due to an inflamed/loose SI joint, I have been plagued with constant piriformis pain since I was 16. I couldn't remember a time when I did not have a sore bum. It has been through the constant care of Pace West Physical Therapy that I have been able to regain strength, heal, and resume regular physical activity.
Trevor, in his unique gentle manner, combined physical manipulation, stretching, and exercise to start me on the road to recovery. And, he threw in a lot of humor, parenting anecdotes, and important tips on how to strive to live a stress-free life. I appreciated Trevor's constant desire to stay ahead of the curve... wrapping in cutting-edge physical therapy techniques into my treatment regime.
And you can't beat the office staff. It was a pleasure to interact with the warm staff when scheduling appointments and dealing with billing/insurance issues. Most of all, I have loved the special individualized care that I have received from Pace West Physical Therapy. I did not feel like just another patient.
Pace West Physical Therapy is a source of healing for many of us here in Boulder County. Thanks for the wonderful care!
