My daughter is a competitive gymnast. Five years ago she had surgery on her elbow and we saw Shira for her physical therapy. She was awesome, knowledgeable about athletes and knew what needed to be done to get my daughter back in the gym and competing. More recently, my daughter experienced a significant ankle sprain during a gymnastics practice and needed physical therapy. I immediately searched the web for Shira and found she had her own practice, The PT Zone. I immediately called to make an appointment and Shira was able to get her in within the week. My daughter has been in PT for a couple of months now. Shira and her team give each client significant individual attention, not like those giant PT offices, that feel like a drive through. They also provide alternative techniques like massage and acupuncture needles. I feel that my daughter is getting top quality care and her mobility is increasing with each visit. If you need PT for any injury, I highly recommend the PT Zone.

I've had to visit several physical therapists over the years for various injuries, primarily related to running. The PTZone is a great facility with excellent services conveniently located near downtown Salem. Kaitlin has been a wonderful physical therapist, capable of balancing multiple simultaneous injuries, offering appointments amenable to my schedule, and an uplifting attitude every single visit. I'd recommend PTZone to anyone in the area looking for assistance with recovery.

Shira is great! Intuitive, proactive and results oriented. My hip pain cleared up after a few visits which was amazing. I'll visit again soon for a separate issue and look forward to her guidance on healing it along.

This was the first time my 15-year-old daughter needed physical therapy for a soccer injury, and Greg was both fun and patient with her during the sessions, making the experience very smooth. The availability of exercises on the app was a significant advantage, allowing us to continue her exercises at home. They are flexible with scheduling, accommodating our preferred times, and are not pushy. My daughter only required two sessions, and she made a rapid recovery

I've been going to Greg at the PT Zone for about two months now for PT and dry needling for a back injury and am so happy I found this place! I've been to other PT offices before for different injuries and always felt frustrated that I would drive there, pay for an appointment, just for them to leave me in a room to do the same exercises I did at home. That's not the case here at all! Greg gives me new exercises weekly, changes my weights as I progress, and always finds something new to work on. He and Shira have also helped me improve my squat and deadlift form greatly! If you're thinking about trying PT here, DO IT!

I am so glad I discovered the PT Zone! I've been to several PTs on the north shore in the past three years and Shira and her team are by far the best. Working with Shira keeps me motivated and excited to get back into working out for the first time in years. I finally feel like I see a path back to my athletic self!

This is my first time at PT and was honestly a little nervous about it. Kaitlin immediately made me feel comfortable and at ease with her friendly and playful personality and demeanor. PT has helped me more than I thought it could. After a few sessions I’m now able to lift overhead again and the pain in my shoulder is so much better. Kaitlin works with my schedule and is flexible and accommodating. She always checks in with me and asks how I’m feeling, won’t push me past my pain threshold and makes sure I’m keeping up with my homework.I feel confident being back at the gym now and that’s thanks to Kaitlin.I would highly recommend her and the PT Zone!

The PT Zone team is incredible. I was a physical therapy skeptic, after having only one previous experience years ago. Shira and her team have completely turned that around for me. They are thoughtful in their approach, and help you understand the science behind what you are feeling. The facility is always clean, and the team is consistently on-time. I have realized significant improvement in my lower back pain in just a few sessions, and look forward to continuing to work with the team to further reduce my pain!

I have visited many PT offices over the years and this is the only one I went back to for repeated visits. Shira was amazing. She did many different exercises and used many different techniques to work through my injury. She explained what she was doing and why and how it was supposed to benefit my injury. Every visit was so worthwhile. In addition to her proficiency as a physical therapist, she runs a great business - the facility was bright and clean and spacious. Arranging appointments was easy, plus I appreciated the app she provided so I could remember how to do each exercise, and record my reps. I highly recommend PT Zone and Shira, in particular
I had Shira work on my injured shoulder! Very knowledgeable and coached me through the healing process so I could get back to doing sports. I was impressed with the sports-based vibe of the space and how efficient each visit was; no waiting, no delays. The PT crew are on point! Thanks!

My PT Zone physical therapist, Greg, has been great to work with! He is very attentive and explains everything clearly, as well as having a warm bedside manner. He also gives a mean massage as part of my treatment. I have been going for about a month and a half and my injuries are feeling much better!The studio is immaculate, well-equipped, and there is ample parking (always a plus in Salem). Everyone there is super friendly.I highly recommend PT Zone!

Our Story: The Why Behind The PT Zone’s Inception

Do you ever catch yourself on autopilot? You fall into a routine, things are status quo, and then something kicks your butt and changes everything? For me, that was 2020. Last March, when many of us went in to quarantine, I was close to an all-time high weight, newly...

The Cortisone Injection. Is it Worth it?

This one’s a doozy. We have seen an upward trend over the past several years in the issuance of cortisone injections to our patients. Cortisone is a steroid that reduces inflammation, thereby reducing pain. They are frequently injected in to joints such as the knee,...
