Read what Towson Sports Medicine patients have to say about Chris Parker!
“I had my right shoulder replaced by Dr. Codd at age 64 due to chronic acute osteoarthritis. Chris Parker - assisted by Brittaney - guided me expertly through 4 months of PT at your Cockeysville location. Chris is very pleasant and personable, extremely knowledgeable about various treatment modalities, and regularly revised my routine to keep me challenged and improving. The two of them have a great team dynamic, and routinely anticipated each others moves and needs. As a result, my therapy sessions were always up-tempo and seamless in their progression. They were very patient with me, and always had the time to fully answer my questions. I have undergone multiple physical therapies in my life, and worked with some very good PT teams over the years. Chris and Brittaney have been the best for me!”
“Chris Parker was absolutely fantastic, professional, thorough, and pushed me to get back to running! I won't go anywhere else for PT in the future. The entire staff was wonderful from the first call to my last visit. Chris L, Derek, Lindsay were also friendly, professional and instrumental in getting me back to running!”
“Chris and Emma have been wonderful. They are responsive to my current condition and do not keep with the same routine every visit - they make adjustments as I improve or have set backs. I have been to two other PT facilities and they are by far the best!”
