Patient of the Month
"Hi my name is Tiffany James, and I have been going to Ozark Physical Therapy for a frozen shoulder. It has been very painful and therapy has not been fun and it hurts but I have been determined to get healed! There is no way I could have ever done it on my own and I am so thankful for Dennis & Claire's expertise. Dennis has given me stretches & exercises & Claire has done cupping which has made my shoulder feel amazing! I am 90% recovered and would tell anyone that Ozark Physical Therapy should be their 1st and only choice because they have 30 plus years of experience with Dennis & now specialized treatments like cupping with Claire. They really care about getting you back to doing, feeling, & living better, & it shows!"
We would love to hear about your experience!
"Five months ago last September I injured my back. I didn't know what the injury was, it just hurt. I had made a wrong move during a horse riding lesson and I could not get recovered from that. My primary care physician referred me to the Springfield Spine Institute for a diagnosis. The neurosurgeon in Springfield did a complete work up with x-rays and a MRI. The diagnosis was a Probable micro compression fracture in my spine in addition to slight scoliosis. The neurosurgeon prescribed physical therapy to strengthen my core, correct my posture and resolve the incorrect muscle and skeletal loading that was causing me to injure myself.
As a patient of Dennis Fellers at Ozark Physical Therapy, I have over the past four months been able to do exactly that. I no longer have pain after exercise or while horse riding. My core is beginning to strengthen, my balance has improved and my posture has allowed me to realign myself in a way the skeleton was designed. Dennis Fellers and the staff at Ozark Physical Therapy have over the years helped my husband recuperate after several surgeries: his shoulder, his elbow, an achilles tendon tear and a knee replacement. Because Michael had such good results with his physical therapy I requested to take my therapy at Ozark Physical Therapy with Dennis Fellers. During my appointments there are several people having therapy at the same time exercising and working the equipment and although therapy is not fun everyone seems to be enjoying themselves, the atmosphere is encouraging, supportive and friendly. Can't say I love physical therapy but I do love the results!"
"I came to Ozark Physical Therapy for low back pain and poor balance. Dennis & Clare have given me treatments & exercises which have helped me greatly. They make it fun & challenge me to reach my goals. I highly recommend OPT to anyone in need of help to improve their physical well being!"
"I have been going to Ozark Physical Therapy for three months. I had issues withy back from poor posture. Dennis and his crew helped me get back to feeling better! If you are having similar issues there is still hope. Contact Ozark Physical Therapy today to change your life for the better!"
"I've been coming to Ozark Physical Therapy for treatment after a spinal fusion on my neck. Claire has worked with me for several weeks and I have improved greatly with my range of motion and I am improving more each day. This is not my first time being a patient of Ozark Physical Therapy because of other problems. But when a problem has happened I make sure to choose Ozark Physical Therapy as my provider and you should too!"
"I've been coming to Ozark Physical Therapy for lower back problems for the last several months. I cannot even tell you the pain I was dealing with daily but Dennis never gave up and helped me to get back to feeling normal and doing the things I love to do! I highly recommend Ozark Physical Therapy!"
"I've been coming to Ozark Physical Therapy since January. I have had shoulder surgery, rotator cuff and bicep tendon reattachment. I can now raise my arm up and use it! Claire Doss is my therapist and I love her! Everyone there is friendly and helpful! I highly recommend Ozark Physical Therapy!"
"I went to Ozark Physical Therapy because of trouble with my sciatic nerve, shoulder movement issues and lower back problems. Dennis, Donna and Claire are very professional and had me doing exercises three times a week as well as doing them at home. They did me a world of good! They listened to everything I told them about where I was hurting and they had the answer and fixed the problem! I highly recommend Ozark Physical Therapy!"
"Recently, I had a spill on a motorcycle and broke my right collar bone. I also had a total rebuilt shoulder on the left hand side, so I started coming to OPT with sore shoulders on either sides. Dennis and Claire were not only very friendly but very professional about the way they handled my therapy. They worked on each shoulder, gave me exercises to strengthen and help give me range of motion that I haven't experienced in quite awhile. As I continued the therapy, they would discover other things that needed to be worked on and they would change the exercises accordingly. Dennis and Claire are very professional about the way they handled my situation and not only that, they were also pleasant to be around. They moved me from exercise to exercise and helped me to get my range of motion better that it had been in years, and the pain was COMPLETELY GONE! They increased the strength in both of my arms so I can do things now that I couldn't have done just months ago! I couldn't recommend OPT highly enough! You'll be satisfied with the treatment you get there!!"
"I have been going to Ozark Physical Therapy for 8 weeks now after having back surgery. Clair, Dennis, and Donna have all done a tremendous job helping me regain my strength and mobility. Each of them went out of their way to ensure that I received the proper attention required to perform the exercises properly for maximum results. I would highly recommend Ozark Physical Therapy to anyone!!"
"I have been coming to Ozark Physical Therapy for six months for my neck & back. I was to the point I could not mop, sweep, or do household chores. After several months, I have seen a great improvement in being able to do those tasks and my pain has decreased greatly. I would highly recommend Ozark Physical Therapy! Dennis and his staff are outstanding!!"
"I began my journey with Dennis and Ozark Physical Therapy a couple of months after tearing my ACL. I couldn't walk normally on my knee and was losing a lot of strength in my leg muscles. After four weeks of physical therapy I saw a tremendous improvement, I could walk almost normal again and my muscle strength improved a ton. I was truly impressed at how quickly they could work with me to improve that functionality. In June, I returned just a few days post op and again have had such amazing gains toward getting back to normal. Dennis is very knowledgeable in his field and will help get you moving no matter what you're seeing him for. Dennis and Donna don't just treat you like another patient, they treat you like a friend. I would highly recommend Ozark Physical Therapy!"
"Since March I have been going to Ozark Physical Therapy for sciatic nerve pain. Dennis and Donna have done an outstanding job to make my pain more tolerable. The treatment has been very successful and I highly recommend them!"
"I started coming to physical therapy a couple of months ago due to damaging my shoulder. I was a little unsure about what it could do and if I would like it or rather...would I actually do it. I found our right away that it was going to be a wonderful thing and I really liked both the Dennis and his assistant Donna! I was evaluated to see what I needed and was then given some simple exercises to strengthen and heal my shoulder. I love the fact the Dennis sings, chats with and works out with me; like doing push-ups and how he always reminds me to, 'Strengthen that elbow!' when I get a bit lazy.
The office is always clean, and the staff is always professional and helpful when you need to know or understand what your doing and how it is affecting your healing. Donna always smiles and is willing to adjust your appointments when you can't make it, she also likes to joke with you while you work out; when she is free to do so. My shoulder is definitely stronger now than it used to be and I even do the exercises at home. No matter what day of the week you come to work out, you never see anyone be unhappy; even while you're all working out and feeling the strain and I'd recommend this place to everyone!"
"I have been coming to Ozark Physical Therapy for a chronic shoulder strain. In a short time they have helped me restore full range of motion with my shoulder. I would definitely recommend Ozark Physical Therapy! DO YOUR EXERCISES:)!"
"I've been going to Ozark Physical Therapy for three months now. The reason I am going to therapy is because of lower back and hip pain.

OPT has not only helped me with my pain but it has also been like coming to see family and because of that I highly recommend Ozark Physical Therapy!"
"I go to Ozark Physical Therapy, so they can help me walk better. My mother was in a wheelchair because she had the same walking problems that I do. But by coming to Ozark Physical Therapy and receiving treatment I am able to walk without being in a wheelchair! I recommend Ozark Physical Therapy!"
"I am 57 years old, and I am hispanic. This is a very good clinic. I started receiving therapy on January 22, 2020. I came to this clinic with no control of my body to walk or balance myself. I have overcome all this with the help of the therapist at this clinic. Thanks to all the exercises and support I am much better today. This clinic helped my health, helped me regain control of my self and body. I can walk again, and do many other things I was not able to do before receiving therapy. Thank you to every one for helping me regain control of my self, to be the person I was before and have a normal life!"

"I went to Ozark Physical Therapy in Berryville for almost 2 months due to an injury to my SI joint. My experience there was excellent. Dennis and every single member of his staff are the best! With their help and caring attention, I was able to return to doing what I love, which is cheering for the Berryville Bobcats! Go Bobcats!!"
"I have been doing my physical therapy at Ozark Physical Therapy in Berryville for the past 2 months following my total knee replacement. Everyone has been helpful and friendly. Dennis often breaks into song which supplies much encouragement to work harder and get better fast! Cathy was great at helping me with extra tips on how to do certain exercises or stretches. My orthopedic surgeon was impressed on how well I was doing at my last checkup. I am back to playing pickleball and I have to say, playing better than before thanks to the caring people at OPT. I wouldn't be where I am today if it weren't for this great team. I would highly recommend Ozark Physical Therapy!"
"I recently had my shoulder operated on, for what was supposed to be a routine Orthoscopic Torn Cuff Surgery. When the Orthopedic Surgeon began the surgery, it became more complicated than they first thought. There was a piece of broken bone floating in the joint that had not been observed at first in the x-rays. This bone had to be removed causing a much larger incision and supposedly a longer recovery time. I had gone to Ozark Physical Therapy in the past for physical therapy services and told the Orthopedic Surgeon that was where I wanted to go. I went there for approximately eight sessions before going back to see the Orthopedic Surgeon. He said that he was impressed with the rate of my recovery saying that I was recovering faster than expected due to the surgery. I contribute this to owner Dennis Fellers, and his staff of very qualified therapists, and prayer. I would highly recommend Ozark Physical Therapy to anyone wanting a speedy recovery."
"I have been going to Ozark Physical Therapy for a few weeks now for my back and hips. When I first started going the pain was very bad and I couldn't walk but about 10 to 15 feet without having to sit down and rest. Now the pain is so much better! I can walk a lot further and stand a lot longer! Also, I couldn't walk up or down the stairs but I am beginning to do that again! Dennis and his staff have made a big difference with my therapy and have made it fun too! I highly recommend Ozark Physical Therapy!"
"I have been going to Ozark Physical therapy for my back and hip for several weeks. I have gotten relief of my pain and I am feeling so much better! I have so much more range of motion. Dennis and his staff are exceptional at quality of care and treatment!"
"When I started going to Ozark Physical Therapy I had several surgeries and a lot of issues with my neck, shoulders, back, and legs. After working with Dennis and Cathy I can turn my head, lift my arms, and walk without support. One of the best parts of therapy is whether I'm doing the mat, stabilization, or strength exercises Dennis or Cathy are always right beside me encouraging, correcting, and evaluating my progress. I am thankful I chose Ozark Physical Therapy. They have helped me keep my independence and ability to do the activities I choose!"
"I've been going to Ozark Physical Therapy for my hurt shoulder for about two-three months. Without Dennis and his team helping me to work harder I wouldn't be at the strength I am today! The serenading wasn't bad either!! All jokes aside, I highly recommend Ozark Physical Therapy for all of your therapy needs!"
"I had a knee injury in November and was told by my surgeon that I needed to start physical therapy BEFORE I had surgery. I thought that seemed odd but did as I was told and the result was that it really paid off in the long run because it shortened my therapy by a whole month!! Dennis and the gang at OPT were wonderful and very professional. I highly recommend Ozark Physical Therapy!!"

"Some of you may remember I practiced orthopedics here in Berryville for many, many years! I am now retired and I had a knee problem and have had a total knee replacement. I've known Dennis that entire thirty years, so when I needed therapy I went to Ozark Physical Therapy. They've done a marvelous job with me! That doesn't mean it's easy...you've got to put the work in! But then, I always figured...I dished it out for fifty years so I better be able to take it!" here to edit text
"After suffering with chronic shoulder pain & decreased range of motion for a year, a friend referred to me Ozark Physical Therapy & licensed therapist, Dennis Fellers. I've been a patient now for just over a month and am so pleased to be able to say that I've had tremendous results from the treatment I've received from Dennis and his great staff. They are not only obvious professionals who know what they are doing but, they have let me know they are truly concerned and want to help me do what is necessary to be pain free & able to be fully active once again.
