  • I have been to BGPT several times in the past and was always happy with treatment.  This time I was so pleased with the attention to detail and with staff overall.  They were amazing.  Thank You!

  • I recently had a full knee replacement and used Battle Ground PT as my therapy facility. I cannot say enough about the staff that I delt with. The therapists are very knowledgeable and explain the importance of taking your therapy seriously. During my sessions, they ran me through a full gauntlet of exercises, pushing me to my limits, but never beyond them. I recently saw my surgeon, who was extremely pleased with my progress. Highly recommend. Note: The interior of this facility may not look as high tech as some, but they have a full range of equipment and a friendly knowledge staff. If you’re willing to put in the work, they will get your mobility back.

  • I chose Battle Ground Physical Therapy for my post-knee replacement therapy, based on the recommendations of both my surgeon and my primary care physician. From the first moment I called them, BGPT was so easy to work with, from scheduling to billing and bringing incredible positive energy and encouragement to my sessions (which were 3 x per week). I was actually excited to go every day and always felt better afterward, with progress achieved each time. They never overbook and I always have the full attention of my therapist, in a very clean and orderly environment with excellent equipment and a wide variety of options for training and working out whatever challenges or concerns may come up during therapy. The owners and employees are incredibly personable and very knowledgeable, with the goal of helping their patients achieve the goals they set for therapy and rehabilitation. I love going there three times per week, and am so motivated by the progress and energy I find there! BGPT is conveniently located located close to our home here in the area, the people are so wonderful I can’t imagine ever leaving there, and I have recovered quickly with their assistance!!! We wouldn’t choose any other place but Battle Ground Physical Therapy now that they have helped me to successfully heal from my knee replacement surgery. We ENTHUSIASTICALLY give our highest recommendation to anyone in need of physical therapy for Battle Ground Physical Therapy in Battle Ground, WA. They are just wonderful, like family, and will help you get amazing results!
