“My son, Ryan, sought therapy for overall weakness, abdominal and shoulder pain and the inability to walk. Since starting with NIPT, he has experienced a noticeable increase in strength. He loves working in the pool. Progress has been slow and Ryan is not fully walking yet, but Bradley, Justin, Stephanie and Mishelle have all been so unfailingly kind and patient through the process.”
