I love helping people, and when they take the time to tell me how much I’ve helped them it really propels me forward to continue doing my best to help More people. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for your kind words. I’m so glad to hear you’re feeling better! Josie Schatz, PT :)

Josie saved my feet. After being diagnosed with Plantar fasciitis several years ago and having cortisone shots. Josie taught me simple exercises to do each morning. Never suffered since. Highly recommend Josie. She is awesome, friendly, professional and great at what she does.

Motorcycle accident left me with a broken wrist and collarbone. Not only is she a well qualified PT, her encouragement and optimism gives my journey to recovery a positive outlook helping to heal the mental side of a traumatic experience.

Really great experience with Josie! I came to her with a shoulder injury and she was able to diagnose me and give me exercises to strengthen my shoulder as well as stretches to open up my mobility to lessen the pain and reduce further injuries.

As someone who’s injured all the time, there are a few big things I really appreciate about Josie:

  1. Care - Josie truly cares about her patients. You can tell right off the bat when meeting her that she is someone who truly cares about others, and she takes the time to learn about you. For her, she’s treating you as a person and not just another injury to diagnose. And at the end of the day she’s a kind person who’s enjoyable to interact with.
  2. Communication - Josie is great at both listening to what you have to say and also communicating what you need to do and why.
  3. Experience - To be honest for me this was one of the biggest things that drew me to Josie. As someone who enjoys playing a lot of sports, I KNOW that Josie has been through all of the stuff that I’m going through and has seen firsthand tons of injuries. Knowing that she has that depth of experience in both treating and working toward preventing sports injury sets Josie apart in my opinion. If I recall correctly, Josie was a D-1 athlete in two sports and she still plays volleyball professionally. Even with my limited athletic resume (I played varsity h.s volleyball and my college co-ed intramural team won 1st place one season in the “B” league. Oh and I was a benchwarmer on my h.s freshman basketball team. yay for me.), I know that playing sports really makes you encounter a lot of injuries. Josie’s been there done that for years and can draw from years of experience.

Josie is fabulous whether in person or in video & has SO much knowledge. To add on, she knows just the way to speak so you understand. Listen & do the exercises and you will feel amazing. I highly recommend her, so check her out.

Josie,

I want you to know that I really appreciate how you came to my rescue. I did not have any idea how serious my peroneal nerve injury to my left leg and foot was until I had to wear a support for daily walking and one for sleeping. My foot would flop when I walked and would flop when I slept.

Never had I had an injury that I did not know exactly what I did to make my leg go numb. it just seemed like it went to sleep, like when I was very young and you would sit a certain way and your foot would go numb.

If you had not been such a sweet and kind friend of my daughter’s, I would probably have drop foot permanently! The videos you sent were so instrumental in my recovery. In the videos you showed me exactly how to do the exercises and stretches that I needed to do to quickly start the recovery process. It meant so much to me, because I was starting to get down about not being able to function normally. Sometimes you take your physical well being for granted until you lose it.

Thanks again for making my recovery possible. I would never have been able to receive anything like the expert level of physical therapy in Panama City that you gave to me, not to mention that time that you saved me by not having to find a physical therapy place and all the days of scheduling and leaving home.

Sincerely yours, Marsha M.

p.s. Thank God that you made instructional videos for a visual learner like myself!

Insight Into Injury has become my own secret garden. For 20+ years, I’ve heard so many people ask what’s wrong with my neck. NOTHING, I replied as in no accident, no pain, just limited range of motion. Over the years, I’ve seen 5 different top-rated chiropractors and 3 top physical therapists. They all told me that I could MANAGE the issue but not resolve it because the problem was genetic. FF to Insight Into Injury which I discovered just this past Spring. “Wow” doesn’t even begin to explain.

What piqued my interest is that athletes and yoga pilates devotees are her clients. I took my time with a few of the videos; lots of rewinding and lots of re-watching. They became my daily routines. One of the best things is that the videos are pro-shot without looking slick or rushed; easy to see detailed movements and soooo easy to understand how and why the moves will work.

That therapist (Josie? Joanna?) is the Wonder Woman of PT. Neighbors and friends now tell me that I look taller and even walk straighter. I still have another dozen or so of her videos in my tray. But that’s what has me so giddy about the overall program. Gradual, long-term moves with what are very obvious improvements.

My 2 favorite segments are Neck Strain and Calf Strain. Because I am a Visual Merchandiser, I spend most of my days climbing ladders, crouching before wall displays or hauling new sports apparel from the backrooms onto the sales floor. I’ve felt very stiff and creaky along the neck and shoulder as well as knee and calf areas. I still play those segments – without even watching because the therapist narrates as if she were her in my work space talking me through the moves. “If you’re feeling pain here,” or “depending on your flexibility level,” or “a different angle here will help you turn shoulders,” “switch legs, pull body across,” lots more virtual in-home training. Her voice is so reassuring, so pleasant that it’s easy to do the moves with balance and patience. 5-stars all the way!
