At the age of 48, because of a cancer diagnosis, my leg was amputated above my knee. I was referred to Lawrence Rehab for prosthetic and gait training. I was apprehensive and knew nothing about prosthetic or gait training. The team at Lawrence Rehab immediately embraced me and my situation calmly and friendly.. Their special knowledge of my issues (prosthetic gait training) along with the intimate hands on, one-on-one instruction, fostered a rapid trust and confidence that was reassuring and hopeful. The intimate learning environment was so motivating and inspiring as I met many other individuals who were working through various situations similar to mine. I am so very grateful for their caring and ongoing support that I continue to receive from this wonderful rehab center, 7 years later! You guys are awesome and helped me recover and reclaim my independent active lifestyle!

nBeen going for 4 months.
I have CP and have been dealing with physical therapists my whole life. Mary and Tracy are among the best I have ever had. Their attention to the details is amazing. They know how to handle us neurologically impaired folks and everything is geared to the needs of the individual.Would give these folks my highest recommendation.
Wayne, cerebral palsy
Very knowledgeable and competent therapists. They were booked 3 weeks out but squeezed me in within a week and were extremely accommodating!
Terry , hip replacement
While 2017 was really tough for me, I found out that a lot of people care about my well being. My world was turned upside down and I experienced some dark days. A lot of days were the same as yesterday and the next. But the brightest days were my time spent at Lawrence Gait Center. These were days I experienced HOPE. Tracy Rauk was gentle yet demanding and she really cared and gave me hope that one day soon I would return to a productive life.
As below knee amputee for 30+ years this place retaught me how to walk after knee surgery. They made me better than I was before surgery and a better walker period. Thank you!
Phil, below knee amputee
Best PT ever.
John , cerebral palsy
As an above-the-knee amputee of 47 years, I've received the best advice and rehab from The Gait Center. The people there tailored programs specifically for my needs and problems, particularly for my back and knee pain and for helping me understand ways to take advantage of new prostheses to stay healthy and happy. Most recently, Tracy Rauk helped me adapt to my new prosthesis by understanding me, challenging me, and encouraging me to achieve goals that I know I can reach. It was a joy to work with such an enthusiastic young therapist as Tracy.
Hugh, above knee amputee
Based on my experience as a patient here, I highly recommend these folks. Patient-centered physical therapy practice. The people are knowledgeable, experienced, and care about the progress of their patients. They can handle everything from a spinal cord injury to an amputation to ortho surgery rehab to a muscle/ligament injury. They expect their patients to work toward recovery on their own time and use the appointments for therapy and education rather than exercise.
Rand , low back pain
Amazing treatment & everyone is so nice!
I went to the Gait Center after hip replacement surgery. I was very pleased with the services there and the hands on attention I received from Danene. She was great about listening to me and addressing other issues and concerns that existed before my surgery. I highly recommend the Gait Center.
Lyons, hip replacement
High knowledge base for care of patients with multitudes of injuries or ailments. ..professional service well organized....I love it!
Kimberly, double above knee amputee
It is not just one of my favorites, it is my favorite and the best. Lawrence Rehab has not only helped me to walk and come back to life but has also built my confidence in myself again. Still have a ways to go but they are confident in me and have worked on my confidence in myself. This is one of the most complicated things I have ever done in my life. Only thru the therapists, David and Danene specifically, have I moved forward in walking physically and mentally.
Lawrence Rehab is very important to me and my future. Great people are here...
Donna, above knee amputee
After having multiple knee surgeries, I had just accepted that my quads were never coming back and I would always have knee issues, back problems, hip pain, etc. Jeff and the rest of the team got me back to my old self, doing things I assumed were no longer possible. Thank you all so much for all of your hard work, because of you I have confidence in my knee and am pain free.
Hamilton, knee surgery
Therapy was great. I was in bad shape when I arrived and after 2 visits Danene had me feeling much better. Today I feel great and a 1000% better. Everyone was great but Danene is tremendous and really took the time to work on progress that was catered to me and my lifestyle.
Jeremy, low back pain
Excellent! This is my second experience here, both with Lindsay Dawson Nexsen. She is the best! I recommend Lawrence Rehabilitation to all of my friends who need their services.
Judy, total knee replacement
Excellent!!! Cameron was the best - she helped and explained everything for a swift recovery. Will miss her sweet smile and encouragement.
Carla, total knee replacement
Excellent staff, really caring. My physical therapist, William Riddick DPT, was the BEST. He offered excellent guidance and well explained what he was doing and why. The exercises were clear cut and I understood the reasoning behind every movement. I would and will highly recommend The Gait Center to each and all of my friends and associates needing gait services.
Jerry, traumatic leg injury/reconstruction
Nicole and Tracy are remarkable young women who have such knowledge and “know-how” to treat a patient. The exercises and “hands-on” treatment have helped me recover a normal gait and life has been made easier. Thanks for all of your help.
Shirley, balance/gait/fall risk
Cameron did an excellent job!! Just would not let me rest enough between exercises - just kidding! I feel like I improved a great deal in my balance.
Thomas, balance/broken hip
The program enabled me to make great progress in ambulation with less pain.
Bron, postpolio syndrome/back pain
EXCELLENT! Very impressed with the staff and the welcoming feeling they provide to all patients.
Elizabeth, knee and back pain
My time at The Gait Center has been so beneficial! I love how a therapist spends the entire time with you! Jeff has been amazing! He used his knowledge and encouragement to make such a difference for me.! My back and balance are much improved! Thank you
Susan, fall risk and back pain
Excellent job helping me rehab after my hip replacement! Danene and Alan helped me get up and moving in no time – cannot thank them enough!
Blair, total hip replacement
It was a blast!! My therapist was a pleasure to work with, very attentive without being pushy. I'm able to walk at a convenient pace and keep up with my friends and wife. It has also helped my golf game. If I need help in the future, I know where to go!
