Northbound Health is open to hearing their clients true needs.
“Northbound Health is open to hearing their clients true needs. They don’t just walk in to your home, give you a piece of paper with exercises on it, take a few measurements, spend a quick 26 minutes with you and leave you to move on to the next number on their schedule.
Northbound Health Therapists walk into your whole life and support you, your goals and your efforts 100%. They work with you by first listening to you and then together they help you to realize the goals you are striving to achieve.
When they aren’t working with you personally, they’re actually sitting down with each other, making plans and coming up with innovative strategies to make sure that the patient receives the very best care possible. The time, energy, and focus that is spent on making sure the whole person is addressed is absolutely unheard of in the rehabilitation industry. I have worked with a few other companies and Northbound has set the standard that is going to be nearly impossible to surpass.”
