Testimonials - Here's What People are Saying About Magna PT in Avon CT!
"After my first knee scope I didn't do any rehab at all and I've always felt that my knee is only 85% of what it should be. This time around (on the other knee) I did intensive rehab with Brian and his staff and I feel 110%. I'm able to transfer my weight to the left, getting off my right side for the first time in years, eliminating my push!! I'm able to generate so much more power now compared to before my surgery and rehab."
Bob Maxon, NBC30 Meterologist
Over the last few years, a knee surgery and back pain plague my golf swing. However the sessions that I have spent with Brian and the Magna Golf Medicine Team, have virtually kept me playing competitive golf. Their personal concern and care are just a few of the pluses of the group. They MAKE you better by MAKING you train. They just don't bandage the hurt, they give you a long lasting program to further improve.
John Nowobilski, PGA Professional Tallwood Country Club, Hebron, CT

"It is difficult in the dance world to find a doctor who understands not only the injury a dancer is dealing with, but how the injury relates to what steps the dancer can continue with in class. Having someone who understands the terminology and specific dance related causes of an injury is integral to helping dancers overcome the problem as well as avoiding future setbacks. Brian Magna has this knowledge, and it can benefit any dancer facing an injury, no matter how severe. "
Abby Hudgins, Dance Teacher Norman OK
"Physical therapy is something dancers can't live without. Our bodies are our lives, and thanks to our physical therapists, we can achieve peak performance.
Kathryn Morgan, Soloist New York City Ballet
" A Dancer cannot be slowed down by pain or injury. Brian understands this. He treats a dancer's body with care and respect . He knows how to pinpoint a concern and treat it quickly. Working with Brian while I was a principle dancer with the Hartford Ballet, I knew I could trust him to accurately assess what was going on with my body.Brian could correct imbalances and give me exercises and tips to improve my performance. This approach gave me confidence I would return stronger and less likely to repeat an injury.It also boosted my understanding of how my body works in a bio mechanical way. Now a teacher of dance, I confidently recommend my students to Brian for treatment and rehabilitation."
Tim Melady: Dancer, coach, teacher The Hartt School & The Nutmeg Conservatory for the Arts.

Brian has provided practical advice, therapy and exercise programs to get me back out doing the things I like to do. Magna PT is a friendly, well-equipped, well-staffed environment. During my visits there I learned a lot that helps maintain me in good working order. The experience of going there has been enjoyable in addition to its therapeutic benefit."
