Shira was instrumental in helping me get through some back issues. She has also helped my son and husband. She is fantastic at explaining the issues at hand and how to avoid them going forward. Shira is the best!

My PT experience with Shira could not be better. Professional, caring, friendly, thorough and knowledgeable are only a few of the adjectives that describe her.
Shira is the best and I wouldn’t want to go to anyone else.

Matt B.

Shira used various techniques to get my shoulder feeling better. She was thorough and kind during treatment and I felt very heard working with her. If I hurt myself again, she will be the first person I visit.

Dr. Shira Dragun is THE BEST. Her attention to detail, her vast knowledge, and her experience separates her from any other physical therapist with whom I’ve worked. With injuries in my recent past, she made each PT experience an exceptional result.

Shira’s extensive and endless knowledge as well as genuine compassion has made a tremendously positive impact on my chronic lower back issues. Through effective and comprehensive treatment, my pain management and my overall functionality has improved immensely without the need for other more invasive forms of treatment.

Simply put-Shira is phenomenal. After having back surgery, I struggled to find a physical therapist that could help manage my pain. Working with Shira has been the best thing I could have done. She gives her patients dedicated one on one and amazing home plans!

Carloyn B.

I was plagued with lower back pain, and it’s cause was virtually undiagnosable. Shira took that on and built a program that was flexible and ever-evolving. The combination of her tenacity, her genuine desire to help her patients, and what seems to be her endless knowledge got to the bottom of what was going on and the pain went away.
