Client Testimonials

I have been a client at KCP Physical Therapy for 7 years. Before I was referred to them I dealt with neck and lower back/hip pain. I had tried some of the usual avenues without success. Within 6 months of receiving treatment I was 85% better than I had been in a long time. My next step was to begin a small amount of training. I progressed even more. Over time I have incorporated one hour training at least once a week and during some periods twice a week. When KCP added Yoga classes I was all in. I now go to yoga two times a week and one day for personal training. KCP provides a holistic approach to my well being. They know my physical constraints so they are able to build my workouts and yoga around them. I am 68 years old and have never felt better.

In the weeks after the birth of my first child I experienced 24 hour lower back and hip pain.   The pain was so debilitating that it caused me to limp when I walked and have difficulty lifting my baby.  Luckily, Joyce Kight changed my life dramatically.  For several months she provided excellent physical treatment and emotional support, eliminating my pain and fears.  When I once again experienced severe back pain after the birth of my second child, I knew who to call.  Joyce to the rescue!  After a few months of frequent treatments I was back to being the active, roll around on the floor kind of mom that my girls need. I highly recommend Joyce Kight and KCP Physical Therapy.  The facility is great, treatment is effective, and I don’t have to worry about bringing my girls with me because the women who work there are always willing and excited to soothe a crying baby or distract an antsy toddler while I am being treated.  After almost three years of on-and-off treatments they are like my family and I actually miss having regular appointments.  Thank you to Joyce and all of the staff members!  You truly change people’s lives!

KCP has been treating me, my husband and our two daughters, ages 18 and 23, for 6+ years.  Even though each of us have been treated for different problems ranging from lower back, shoulder, ribs and neck problems, we have all been very pleased with the lasting relief we have received from their treatments.  If you are looking for a physical therapy group that will provide effective and professional care in a warm and caring environment, we highly recommend KCP.

You got me back on my feet not once but 3 times! Thank you is not sufficient!

I am an active “senior” with a passion to remain active (running, softball, golf, etc)…During the last 3 years I have encountered muscle/soft tissue issues that made staying active difficult. I went to a Sports Medicine M.D who prescribed steroid shots and anti-inflammatory meds which helped but did not correct my problem. I finally sought help from Joyce Kight at KCP. Joyce was able to quickly assess my needs and developed therapy programs to quickly resolve my injuries. In my most recent visit, Joyce found a mis-alignment of my pelvis and corrected the alignment on the first visit. Instead of reducing my activities I have been able to set new goals, including an upcoming marathon with my son . Thanks to Joyce and her excellent staff for getting me back on track quickly and providing me with the treatment and guidance I needed to remain active and healthy.

Our family came to KCP Physical after our son, Adam, underwent 2 surgeries for a torn ACL. Adam was only 10 and had extremely delicate surgery that required a high level of expertise. Joy communicated with our surgeon and helped formulate a treatment plan that we all understood and believed in 100%. She went above and beyond when it came to caring for and treating Adam. She came in on her days off to make sure that Adam got consistent therapy and was careful not to overwork the tender repair. Joy’s work was instrumental to the full recovery of our son and we would recommend her healing touch to all that are in need. After seeing the soft tissue work that she did with Adam, it was an easy decision on who should help me with my Planters facetious and back pain.  KCP has always communicated clearly, professionally, and executed the treatment plans as if we were family.

I have suffered from migraines since I was 5 yrs old and have been to everyone from neurologists to a hypnotist for help.  Joy has been my savior!  My migraines have significantly improved since seeing Joy. Not only are my migraines less frequent, but after being worked on by Joy I just feel better overall. Everyone at the office is so incredibly nice, and super accommodating to the fact that I have to bring my 3 young children with me; to the point where my girls get so excited on PT days. Thank you so much KCP, we love you!

KCP has been helping me for years! As an “aging athlete” I sometimes need help with a muscle or tendon injury. I get the care I need at KCP that keeps me active. I also learn how to avoid future injuries to minimize downtime from my workouts! The personal training I’ve received at KCP has really helped with this too! Thanks for everything Joy and Joyce!
“We are a family that love sports and are very physically active! So seven years ago , when our son, a distance runner, suffered a foot injury at a critical point in his cross country season, we were thankful to be referred to KCP Physical Therapy!  The quick assessment and treatment of the injury enabled him to continue running through his high school and college years. Since then, every one of us has come to KCP to see Joy and Joyce for help when we experience issues that prevent us from participating in the sports that we love.  Even my parents, who live five hours away, come to Charlotte to see Joy and Joyce .  I tell anyone who talks to me about something that causes them pain about how much KCP has made a difference in our lives.  I say, “Just call KCP!””

“The BEST! I was referred by my doctor a few years ago for various issues. KCP helped with my back, neck and shoulder problems. I was so impressed with my progress that I have stayed with them to improve my overall health, through training and yoga. I had gone to other physical therapy practices in the past, but found them impersonal. Joy, Joyce and the entire staff make everyone feel very welcome. I look forward to my appointments!”
