Having had >20 years of chronic neck and back pain and multiple treatments with drugs, seeing a chiropractor, trying physical therapy, getting injections for pain, along with feeling stiffness and having limited range of motion, I did not have the ability to do strenuous household chores and the fun things I wanted to. I came across a free workshop Fast Track was hosting and I thought, “it couldn’t hurt?!” Well, it turned out to be the best experience I’ve ever had! Everyone is professional, warm, caring and very knowledgeable. The modalities used brought sooooooo much improvement! At first I thought it would just be the same routine as any other physical therapy I have tried but I quickly saw improvement right away. I have even noticed my recovery time after my appointments is immediate and I have not had to take any drugs for pain! I thank each and every one of you from the front desk to Brian, himself.
Once upon a time there was a prince who lived in the kingdom of Avon. He was 32 years old, but due to unforeseen circumstances, felt more like 95. You see, despite no wrong doing of his own, and without warning, he crossed paths with a local warlock determined to place a hex upon every man who trod his path that day. The prince fell under a particularly nasty spell, and as a result he was living his days and nights in constant, debilitating hip and back pain. His thoughts were consumed with worry, apprehension, and risk/reward calculations instead of focusing on the obligations required of him from both family and constituents. The townsfolk were beginning to talk and rumors were spreading quickly to other kingdoms of the Avon prince’s dire condition. With every passing day more pain would reveal itself – accumulating along with the prior days’ totals. The anxiety was continuing to build and none of his royal advisors were able to find any suitable healers (although many medical professionals attempted to help, none were found to be up to the task). He hit a crossroads late one winter evening when he came to the shocking realization that one particular practitioner was treating the prince DIRECTLY AFTER providing chiropractic care to a small brown wiener dog in the same office. He was exasperated. The prince is very open minded, and realizes that desperate times call for desperate measures, but this was just too much too handle. Having given up on the medical community’s ability to help him, he resorted to a DIY version of analyzing his symptoms on his own, self-diagnosing, and toughing out the pain a bit longer. This tactic soon failed him, and after many extremely hard days, he turned to his oldest friend, weary and desperate for help. This friend had dedicated his young adult life to becoming a respected doctor in the community – and he had a connection. He told the prince, “I highly recommend you go see Brian at Fast Track Physical Therapy. Tell him I sent you”. The young prince heeded his friend’s advice, readied his horse, and embarked on his journey. When he arrived he found a collection of hard-working, talented, savvy, and thoughtful medical professionals at this facility who truly cared that the young prince get his life back on track. Instantly the experience at Fast Track was different from all prior attempts to get better. The first appointment was scheduled for 1 hour, but Brian worked with the prince for over two and a half hours. No stone was left unturned. He was incredibly thorough. He actually cared. Every single person in the building cared. Nobody phoned it in. Nobody was insincere. They were not just showing up to work – they were actually fixing him and giving him hope for the future. This trend continued as every symptom was fully vetted, therapies executed impeccably, effectiveness of treatments were measured and recorded. The prince was steadily improving. More expert-level medical advice and treatments were provided by team members Matt and Bob. It seemed personal to them and the results were indicative of this fact. They were invested in getting the young man back to having not only a heathy body but also an untroubled frame of mind. The prince felt good and took a break from PT – he graduated. He got the t-shirt and the water bottle. But sadly, he got complacent, tapered off on his home therapy routine, and he relapsed – HARD. Incomprehensibly, he hadn’t learned his lesson – he still wasn’t taking his health as seriously as he needed. He lost his progress, but hadn’t reverted all the way back to square one. He needed expert help again. This is where we are introduced to the hero of this story – her name is Bridgette. The prince views Bridgette as the PT version of Uma Thurman’s character in Kill Bill (vol’s 1 and 2). But unlike the Kill Bill character (who used her skill and dexterity to make quick work of her enemies – killing them by the thousands) Bridgette uses her powers for a noble cause – to heal the good people of Avon. She is a polished professional who has honed her confidence, experience, and skill to thoroughly master her discipline. She is 100% committed to listening to complaints and figuring out the most probable cause of the pain, as well as offering the corresponding likely best solution. Luckily, Bridgette specializes in solving complex problems, which she regularly does in under 60 minutes flat. She also consistently provides top-notch therapy, as well as consultative advice for being healthier in general. Currently, the prince sees Bridgette once per month to insure he isn’t drifting back into the dark and scary crevasse of pain. He is endlessly grateful for her. He tells all the other princes in kingdoms near and far to go see her when they are having issues of their own. They all lived happily ever after. The End.
I’m a difficult case, to say the least. I saw 15 doctors and 3 other PTs before I stumbled into Brian. He genuinely cares about what your issue is and how to fix it. He doesn’t rush you out of his office and is just an all around good guy. I recommend him to anyone that complains to me about pain. A recommendation from me doesn’t come lightly, as I have experienced the bad side of healthcare too. I commute over an hour to Fast Track and people ask “is h…e really THAT great” and my response is always “I would drive to Nebraska for Brian.”
I also want to comment on Bridgette. She was the first PT I saw when I went to fast track. Bridgette was great. She is very knowledgeable, a good listener, and makes sure your all your needs are addressed. I only saw her 2 or 3 times before Brian took me over, but I still see her if Brian’s schedule is booked up and look forward to it just as much.
Overall, If it was 2 in the morning and you were googling chronic pain and now you’re on this Facebook page… and read this entire review…. just call and book the appointment. Sheesh.
To the staff at Fast Track Physical Therapy, I just wanted to say, “Thank you for helping me gain strength and range of motion after my foot surgery. Everyone has been super nice and the atmosphere has been relaxing as well as therapeutic. A special thanks to Bob for your great skills and delightful manner. You are all great and I would like to show my appreciation with this little song.
My doctor sent me to therapy at Fast Track Physical Therapy for pain in my lower back and down my left leg. After having treatment, I am pain free. Amie, and my therapist Brian and Bob are very professional and knowledgeable. They worked hard at finding out what my problem was and getting me pain free. God bless all of them. They are doing a wonderful service.

The dry needling therapy we did yesterday has made a huge difference in my neck ad shoulders. Also I can tell a huge difference in my chest pain that must have been coming from my rib case. This is the first time in a long time I don’t have sharp pain in my chest through to my back and a stiff, throbbing, burning neck! I just wanted to let you know how wonderful I feel. Thank you!!
At first I was skeptical when the technique was explained to me. How do you treat a sore pulled muscle without medication?
After the first treatment I noticed a difference; movement was easier and less sore. By the second treatment, I was convinced. My sore, aching shoulder for the last 3-4 months was not hurting anymore.
I regained full range of motion without the drug phase or fog to get comfort & relief, in only a few short weeks. Thank you, Brian & staff & Fast Track.
All I can say this morning is: Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
You have no idea what a wonderful feeling this is to wake up and feel so good. I just don’t know what to do with this feeling! I am so ecstatically happy about it, I could just burst! I am almost completely pain-free in the lower back.
I will admit, when you mentioned this dry needling, I had some serious doubts. Did the research and still had doubts, but was willing to try anything. Believe me, Brian, when I say I am so glad I did. You actually saved me from surgery and I owe you.
My first visit I had dry needle applied along with exercise and deep heat. I found immediate relied. Second dry needle took all the pain away and movement in my shoulder muscle was almost back to normal. I would recommend it to anyone in pain.
Fast Track is definitely the ‘full package’. The team works like a well oiled machine. The attention to the needs of the client is paramount. I have received the best P.T. care in my opinion. Brian + the whole team work to get every possible benefit to the client for recovery. Thanks
Shoulder pain; decreased range of motion + weakness describes me a few months ago.
When Brian suggested Dry Needling, I was a little unsure, but trusted his knowledge & judgement to allow it. Dry Needling combined with other therapies + exercises have provided excellent results.
Dry Needling also took care of some lingering Plantar Fasciitis heel pain allowing me to resume Zumba + Cardio workouts.
Excellent. The needling gave me longer lasting pain relied and the pain is less intense. Would recommend for someone who has tried other forms of therapy without results.
At first I was skeptical when the technique was explained to me. How do you treat a sore pilled muscle without medication?
After the first treatment I noticed a difference; movement was easier and less pain. By the second treat I was convinced. My sore, aching shoulder for the last 3-4 months was not hurting anymore.
I regained full range of motion without the drug phase on fog to get comfort + relief, in only a few short weeks. Thank you Brian & staff @ Fast Track.
Absolutely love Fast Track Physical Therapy!!! Finally feel like I’m getting somewhere after months of pain. Highly recommend Fast Track in Avon.
Simply amazing. Brian us very motivational to get you back to feeling 100% better. The entire staff is wonderful.
If you haven’t tried DRY NEEDLING, you must. My constant elbow pain went away after 1 treatment. I am on my way to a full recovery.
Fast Track had been recommended by a relative. I had suffered with leg and hip pain for months from a pinched sciatic nerve; medications failed to help. After browsing the website and seeing how qualified the therapists are, I felt confident making an appointment. Bridgette first did a full analysis of my problem, then outlined a course of treatment. I feel like the combination of dry needling and exercises was extremely helpful. After one month, my pain was nearly gone. After three months, I was released from treatment pain free. I was treated by four of the therapists over the course of treatment. They are all highly qualified and very caring, as is the support staff. I’m so glad that I came here.
When I walked into Fast Track Therapy, I “limped” in, a very bitter women. I felt like the whole medical profession had failed me. I had knee surgery due to a meniscus tear, rehab that really wasn’t rehab, and a doctor who wouldn’t listen to me, which resulted in a fracture of my tibia. When I met Matt, the first words out of his mouth was, “Tell me your story”, I did and he listened! He didn’t know if he’d be able to help me or not but he wanted to try. It was intense, but well worth it. We even worked through a sciatic nerve issue along the way. Now, after 6 month off work, I’m happy to say I’m back at work and loving every minute of it. I couldn’t have done it without Matt and the rest of the crew at Fast Track Therapy.
Over the years I have tried many thing to try to become pain free, however, nothing worked. I went to doctors, chiropractors, and massage therapists, but none of that made a difference, until I came to Fast Track. I absolutely love the atmosphere here. It’s amazing how everyone here is so kind, compassionate, and professional. You can tell by the way they treat you that they don’t look at you as “just another patient”. The other places I tried therapy at didn’t pay attention to me like they do here. Everything about Fast Track is different, and they really worked hard to find the source of my pain. For the first time in years I am pain free. Thank you so much Fast Track!
I would like to thank Sara and Fast Track Therapy for my quick recovery! I had a total hip replacement on July 8th. I started my therapy on August 2nd, and with Sara’s help and great exercises I was released on August 9th. Sara gave me the confidence to do more than I thought I was able to do. She also addressed my knee when it got sore from exercising. She fixed the knee too. I am continuing with my exercises at home and getting stronger every single day thanks to Sara and the rest of Fast Track.
I am very pleased with the help I was given during my time at Fast Track. I was in pain most of the time prior to coming to Fast Track. I am now 97% pain free. I owe this to the professional therapist assigned to me, especially Sara. I would recommend her to help anyone. I really enjoyed my time exercising at Fast Track.
When I first started physical therapy for my shoulder replacement, I was quite nervous. I hadn’t moved my new joint in 7 weeks after the surgery, and had heard quite a few stories about how painful it was going to be. The first time Bridgette evaluated my shoulder and moved my arm, I was expecting the worst, but her confidence and knowledge of my condition, showed me that I could move my arm without the pain. This really boosted my confidence and encouraged me to continue. Bridgette was always positive and very encouraging. She pushed me, and that is what I needed to help me regain strength and range of motion. Throughout the process, Bridgette demonstrated her knowledge of my condition and provided me with both insight as to why we were doing the exercises and advice on ways to help ease the pain and gain more range of motion. The entire staff at Fast Track Physical Therapy was extremely helpful and compassionate, and everyone I came into contact with always had a smile and would often ask how I was progressing, even if they were not helping me. I have made far faster progress and gained much more range of motion than I ever expected. When I finished with my treatments, I was able to move my arm from 0 to 165 degrees range of motion relatively pain free, which is more than the doctor had prescribed. I really appreciate the overall experience and am very thankful to everybody at Fast Track Physical Therapy that has helped me along the way.
I hurt my shoulder at the gym and put off getting it looked at for a couple of weeks. Eventually, it got to the point that I couldn’t write without it hurting. When the doctor told me that physical therapy was my best bet, I was dreading it. Meghan and the whole team made the whole experience awesome though. I came in twice a week for a month and was always excited to show everyone my progress. Now, my shoulder is finally feeling like it should again, and I’m back in the gym pain free!
First off I want to “THANK YOU” for making my physical therapy and journey the last 6 months wonderful. On Feb. 10th, 2016 I went in to have a total reconstruction done on my right shoulder, surgery went well and the doctor said I was to start physical therapy the next day. I was surprised to hear so soon, but I knew I had that covered when my youngest daughter was receiving physical therapy herself at the time. With no hesitation my daughter was on the phone setting up my appointment with Fast Track. On Feb. 11th, 2016 I was walking through the doors of a place I was not familiar with but I knew I was at an awesome place because of my daughters’ referral. As I walked in I was greeted with a welcome smile, from that day forward I have been treated with such special care from the outstanding staff. For the last 6 months I have spent 2 days a week traveling from Monrovia, Indiana to receive my physical therapy from the staff at Fast Track. On Aug 18th, I was released and able to get back to my regular activities. I can’t express how grateful I am in receiving the wonderful care I received in the time I spent with pretty much all of the staff. Everyone is so caring and friendly that I feel I have made friendships for a life time. As my journey has come to an end, I know their wonderful care to their new and returning patients will continue on as my wife Donna received physical therapy from them as well. Once again I can’t “THANK YOU” enough for your wonderful care and friendship.
