"Members of my extended family and I have been patients of Taylor's for over five years. In that time, he has treated us collectively for neck and back pain, a knee replacement, a ruptured Achilles' tendon, and hip surgery. I believe that Taylor's depth of knowledge of varied treatments got us all back on the road to recovery faster than we would have with another therapist. He is quite careful to not only attend to the injury site, but also to the patient's whole body health, as an injury in one area can often lead to trouble in another. I also appreciate Taylor's method of being more "hands on" than some physical therapists I've been to in the past, who administer exercises but don't really stretch out or work the injured areas as needed in clinic."

"Saturday- Woke up early and played the first pain free round of disc golf in over 6 months. I was really happy. I could still feel a little soreness and tightness but it was about 90% better and I was happy

Sunday-Went to Beech Mountain to play DG while my boys rode downhill mountain bikes. I was there over 4 hours and walked/played my way down the mountain twice. I literally felt like I had never had an issue. No pain, tightness, soreness, limping…nothing bad.


As I write this to you today, my ankle feels 100% normal. I am really amazed. The treatment is one of the most amazing transformations I have ever been through. I’ll be in touch and keep monitoring it. THANK YOU!"

"I have experienced a major improvement in quality of life since beginning physical therapy and dry needling with Taylor Pope for chronic migraine. I have met only a handful of doctors throughout my life who understood and cared enough to think outside the box for me; Taylor certainly did that. But what is even more extraordinary is to find a healthcare practitioner who shows as much enthusiasm and passion for his craft and for the art of living as Taylor does. His belief in the capacity of physical therapy and dry needling to make a difference in people’s lives inspired me to rekindle hope and to stop settling.


A couple of months into treatment, which included plenty of dry needling, the changes were drastic.

I went from one good day a week to, unbelievably, 6-7 good days a week! I am no longer dependent on pain medications. I have loads more energy than I have ever had before. I feel like a new person and like my life has suddenly opened back up to me. Words simply cannot express how much better my life is now and how sincerely grateful I am. I feel so much better than I ever dreamed possible. Thank you so much, Taylor!!"
