Patient Testimonials

  • In late July I had knee replacement surgery performed by Dr. Swanson at Martha Jefferson Hospital in Charlottesville, VA. Dr. Swanson offers a different, relatively painless knee replacement surgery and thus a different protocol for Physical Therapy post surgery. Dan List at James River Physical Therapy followed the protocol perfectly and I soon was back to walking with ease. I praise Dr. Swanson for her remarkable surgery technique and Daniel List at James River Physical therapy for the very effective treatment Dan provided me. Thank you, Dan!

  • Eight years ago, I developed painful bursitis in my hip. My PCP highly recommended that I see Dan List at James River Physical Therapy, and it’s easy to see why. Dan is very personable and knowledgeable about physiology and physical ailments. After a brief assessment, he was able to treat the trigger points in my hip and my pain was lessened almost immediately. He recommended exercises for me to do at home, which involves the patient in the healing process. Dan is a great listener and advisor, and someone that I consider to be a friend, because he is genuinely concerned about his patients.

  • Dan did a great job getting me back on track. Post Hip Replacement surgery in February 2017, he carefully guided me through a appropriate rehab program. Thus far have avoided the risk of trying to do too much too soon or the opposite not doing enough. I found Dan to be very qualified in dealing with all issues of post surgery rehab. Most beneficial to me was being able to discuss activities that I may be doing and making sure I was at the appropriate level for my condition at that time.

  • I have had a five star experience with James River PT. This was my second time working with Dan and indeed it was “working with”. His expertise is evident. However, his patient collaboration in developing my therapy regimen is what impressed me such that, although I had choices, I went back to him when I needed PT for a second unrelated issue.

  • Daniel and his team helped give me basic exercises and stretches and guide me through back pain I’d been living with for too long. Daniel really seemed invested in my recovery. I didn’t want to have to rely on just pain pills, and James River Physical Therapy got me back to a pain free life. Highly Recommend!

  • I visited Dan about two issues that were prohibiting my ability to walk for exercise. Dan knew exactly what to do and proceeded to bring healing to my heal and to a pinched nerve. Dan is professional in his approach and extremely competent. I only wish I had sought help earlier and would recommend Dan to anyone who needs to improve their ability to move freely.
