"Recent rotator cuff surgery necessitated physical therapy.......COVID 19 added a new element of uncertainty to the decision as to where to go. Having to have Physical Therapy 5 times in as many years, I knew what I did not want and the precautions I was looking for this time. So we decided to stop by and check out Carolina Orthopedic Rehab......based on the reviews we read here. We were impressed with the cleanliness of their beautiful facility and the one on one therapy sessions. The friendliness of the staff, everyone’s professionalism, and obvious measures to insure that COVID germs were under control........made my decision quick and easy. Ken, Kelly & Aaron, you guys are the best! Always caring and encouraging, Thanks so much!! Juli, for that lovely smile welcoming me each visit, always helpful and professional!! Carolina Orthopedic Rehab is without question one of the best in this area. It is the atmosphere, it is their caring concern and expertise, it is Ken, Kelly, Juli and Aaron, professionalism that makes them stand out from everyone else! Peggy"

"Having had lower back pain for years, not the sort for which surgery is an option (degenerative osteoarthritis with facet disease), my hand was forced to pursue a new therapeutic option once I began having such severe back spasms that I literally could not stand up straight. I asked a physician colleague of mine for a recommendation as to whom to see as to physical therapy, and with no hesitation, he recommended Ken Ellsworth at Carolina Orthopedic Rehab Physical Therapy. It proved to be a great referral, as I experienced phenomenal benefit. Julie at the front desk is an enthusiastic and welcoming presence, a great start. Initial paperwork can be completed on line or at the office. My first encounter consisted of a one hour thorough evaluation by Ken, and based upon his findings, I then proceeded through five PT sessions with his superb therapist Kelly. Each session consisted of several minutes of ultrasound followed by about a half hour of deep message to the affected areas. This was complemented by a set of graduated self-performed home exercises between those five sessions with Kelly. I had to compliment her on her hand strength...I am not sure which of the ingredients was the key to my significant improvement, i.e. the ultrasound, message, or exercise, but the combination yielded much benefit. The plan for me will be continued home exercise, daily for two weeks, then a couple of times as week indefinitely, which I will gladly pursue. Ken made it clear that I would be more than welcome to call at any time if any subsequent questions arise, or should a re-visit be indicated. Long story short, this is a great office with highly skilled and personable staff. As we all get older and stiffer, and arthritis runs rampant with associated compromise of quality of life, I can honestly enthusiastically recommend the services of Ken Ellsworth and staff without any reservation whatsoever."

"Carolina Ortho Rehab is a very professional and effective physical therapy establishment. I worked with three (Ken, Kelly, Aaron) PT specialists and made great range of movement and strength improvements to my injured shoulder and back areas. I have had recurring issues and they zeroed in on specific ligament and tendon isolation exercises better then previous attempts elsewhere. They also took the time to educate me properly about more efficient exercising at home. Super friendly bunch, especially Juli, the Office Mgr. who starts your early morning session off with a beaming smile. Highly recommend them!!"

"You won’t find a more professional physical therapy practice. From the beginning, Ken listened closely to my symptoms, mapped out a successful treatment plan for me, and continued to encourage me all along the way. I then spent most of my rehab time with Kelly, who is very focused and outstanding at what she does. She insured my recovery was complete and right on schedule. She was my partner in healing and I came to appreciate her more and more with each visit. Julie always scheduled my visits, greeted me cheerfully, and handled the insurance side seamlessly. Everyone was incredibly kind and competent. I would return here without question."

"Ken and Kelly are absolutely are THE best physical therapists in Hendersonville. Some therapy is done in a private room. The atmosphere is wonderful. There are only 2 therapists in this practice, therefore, it's not like a assembly line. Julie, the receptionist, is very personable and knowledgeable and always has a smile. Everyone gets to know you on a personal level. ❤️❤️❤️"

"Lets start with the treatment assessment. Right on target and a plan of care that was just what I needed. I am getting better every day. Now I am following the self care prescribed and together with the professional treatment received, I am excited to see my issues disappear. I must recognize the PT assistant who has magical hands and fingers. I have had massages before but never like this. The spasmed muscle were no match to her skilled treatment. Thanks to all in this office. Highly recommend their care."

"A Miracle Worker! Over the past 8 years Carolina Orthopedic Rehap has resolved problems with my neck, my knee and hip, and my shoulder. In each case after a few visits, and instructions for excises I could do at home, the problems were completely resolved with no need for further treatment. Highly recommended."

"Just the best. . They are very aware of how the body works & the muscles it takes to get it to work, & it amazed me how they can identify the problem, isolate it, and devise exercises that specifically target the issue... Their workspace is small & their attention is dedicated...You don't get the sense you're in a rehab factory... One thing, never never utter the phrase "This is easy.".."

"I had an extremely positive experience at Carolina Orthopedic Rehab. Ken and Kelly worked with me to regain mobility and strength after my recent rotator cuff surgery. Ken designed a plan that was easy to follow at home between therapy visits. During a difficult patch with frozen shoulder and an extra tight shoulder joint, Ken revised my therapy/exercise plan and offered lots of encouragement. I felt supported every step of the way. Even though I've "graduated " from PT, I continue to use what I've learned to increase my shoulder strength and daily living function. I hope I never need PT again, but if I do, I will definitely call Carolina Orthopedic Rehab!"

"I admit to being a bit skeptical about how much good therapy would help with my broken wrist. I must admit Ken Ellsworth helped me achieve significant improved range of motion and flexibility in my wrist that I thought I would never have again. I would highly recommend him. You will not be disappointed."
