"I was referred by my surgeon to Jim for a knee problem. I also previously had problems with my foot and hip. Jim did a thorough evaluation of how I walked, and how I carried on daily activities. His approach was different from other physical therapies that I have experienced before. He taught me how to sit, get up, and walk properly to help with my problems, and he gave me a few exercise to practice. The functional rehabilitation he gave me has helped me. It is good to know that I can return to him for consultation and treatment whenever I need in the future. Thank you for your excellent service! "

I came to Groschan and Associates in 2017 because of pain in my right knee. I was having trouble walking and going up steps and was unable to work in my garden. I also was planning an overseas trip in 2 months. I had seen the doctor who did an MRI which showed I have arthritis in my knee. He said that I may need to have surgery but he would like me to try PT first.
I began PT with Jim Groschan and it made a significant difference. He showed me how to use my body properly to put less stress on my knee. He taught me exercises to improve my strength and showed me how to sit, stand and walk properly. He did this in a way that put me in control of how I feel. I was able to go on my trip without limitations and I was able to go back to my garden. I have had a recent flare up and but I am back on the mend with a few treatments and a refresher on my exercises.
I know that I may need surgery in the future but my work at Groschan and Associates has helped me preserve my knee and live my life actively.

"Cindy was wonderful and I was very lucky to have her help me with my knee replacement. She has had great past experience to call on and she very encouraging while also making you do what is necessary. I will be recommending her to all my
friends who are in need of PT. Cindy is the best that you could have.

"My recovery from total shoulder replacement surgery has been rapid and successful, in no small part due to the excellent treatment I received from Melissa Blank, PT at Groschan and Associates. Melissa not only treated my shoulder, but also took time to understand me as a person. Together we pursued the common goals of reducing pain, gaining mobility, and returning to everyday life including golf. Melissa is very knowledgeable, has a great manner, and cares about her patients. I could not have chosen a better physical therapist. My experience at Groschan was also enhanced by the excellent office staff, and the timeliness of the overall operation. I would definitely recommend Melissa and Groschan Associates to anyone in need of physical therapy."

"I had a pinched nerve in my neck which caused pain in my left shoulder and a constant tingling down my entire left arm and hand. My Doctor recommended Groschan and Associates and I am glad he did. I was under the care of Dr. Sarah Blanchard . She was fantastic. I felt immediate results, and after about 7 weeks of therapy, I am now pain free. I thank Sarah for getting me through this with her expert guidance . Also, I thank her for making the sessions go by easily with enjoyable conversation. The young ladies at the front desk were wonderful as well. I highly recommend Groschan and Associates."

"I'm 67 years old. Forty-four years ago, I went skiing with rental skis and when I fell on an icy hill, my right ski failed to come off. I suffered a compound fracture with my tibia and fibula both breaking just above my ankle. After 2 surgeries, I was in a cast for 6 months and on crutches for 9 months. The doctor told me I would never run again and always walk with a limp.
I decided to go to a foot specialist and see if I could do anything to retain motion and flexibility. He strongly suggested I go to Groschan & Associates to have therapy done. He highly recommended therapist Melissa Blank, who spent two months working on my foot, helping me learn new exercises to increase flexibility. She was incredibly patient and encouraging, explaining how the exercises would bring back abilities I was afraid I had lost. After waiting 44 years, I thought it was too late. But Melissa was able to wake up the muscles and exercise them, allowing my leg muscles to respond in a positive fashion.. I feel incredibly lucky that I was able to have someone so devoted, knowledgeable, and determined work on my ankle. Thanks to Melissa's skill, I almost feel like I have a whole new leg. She is an incredible therapist, I am lucky that she was able to bring back abilities I feared I had lost.

"Lately, I had begun experiencing difficulty while walking. I would start out fine but the further I walked the more bent over I would become and my back would start hurting. Because of my age (88) I didn't think anything could be done. My primary care doctor recommended I make an appointment with Groschan & Associates. My therapist, Melissa Blank, has been terrific. The exercises she has given me have done wonders. I am able to walk much further than I could before and stand so much straighter. Even others have noticed. I would like to thank Melissa for her kindness and patience and for all the help she has given me. "

"I first came to JIm many years ago after being recommended to him by Dr. Segalman my surgeon. He very highly recommended Jim. After rotator cuff surgery I was told by all that if things worked well I would get back about 85% of my arm usage. Thanks to Jim I am at 100%. His hard work with me and encouragement made the difference. A year ago I was diagnosed with another rotator cuff needing surgery. I ask Dr. Segalman, "how about therapy ?". He said why not try. If can't hurt. The result - After working with JIm again, I don't even know that I have a rotator cuff problem. No pain what so ever. Of course I don't do "radical" movements. However, I am 100% fine. Another "Jim job greatly done".Now recently I developed pains in another shoulder and went to Jim as usual. Results - pain is gone.I fell on my left knee and was in severe pain until I went to see my friend Jim. Here I am now back to myself.To sum it all up. Jim is the greatest. If you have a problem he is the man to see. He does things other therapists can't come close to. Above all, he is a wonderful person. Very professional, caring, encouraging, kind, and patient. We have become friends over the years and I always look forward to the sessions as I really enjoy seeing "my friend" Jim. A great "professional" and a wonderful person in general. By the way his daughter Sara who subs for him with me when his schedule doesn't work out is a true credit to her father. Very nice, caring, and above all really "knows her stuff". To sum it all up you can't go wrong with Groschan & Assoc. You will lose out if you have needs and don't use them. They are "the best". Best of all, wonderful high class human beings. I can't recommend them high enough. Go see them. You will be glad you did. Yitz"

"I had back surgery in February 2018, my recovery was slow, but when I came to Groschan and Associated i was welcomed and made to feel like I had been a long time patient. Melissa Blank was my physical therapist, what a wonderful person and an outstanding therapist. She was understanding, patient and extremely professional. She gave exercises that were easy and effective. Ultimately my back and hip problems were solved and today I feeling sooooo much better I did a few months ago.
I would highly recommend Groschan & Associates to my friends, they are a terrific organization. I want to especially commend Melissa Blank for getting me back on track, now I can play golf again, walk our dog without pain and do daily activities without apprehension. Thank you Melissa and Groschan!!!!!!! "

"I have been a competitive golfer my entire adult life but over the past 14 months, I had been very limited by pain. After working with Jim Groschan, I really improved. He taught me how to control my posture with golf. The focus on exercise and posture principles made a huge difference and gave me much more control over my pain.
So I entered The Baltimore Senior Match Play Championship and I won! This is a USGA sanctioned tournament. It's actually my first real tournament since my injury. It feels pretty good considering I could not swing a club at all last year. "

"My wife and I have both been to Groschan and Associates in the past several years and have been very pleased with the results. I have had bursitis in my left shoulder on two occasions - very painful to sleep at night in particular. Jim worked with me for six weeks or so and completely resolved the problem - I can sleep again. His in office treatment plan was excellent and he provided me with good in-home exercises to strengthen my shoulder. My wife had hip bursitis and saw Cindy for a number weeks with the problem being completely resolved. Cindy and Jim not only are excellent therapists but also have extremely pleasant and friendly personalities that make the process really easy."

I have also recommended Jim and his other physical therapists to friends with issues to go to his office. I truly am one of the lucky ones that was recommended to come here. I no longer need his services but if any problem returns I will certainly come back for help."

"After Rotator Cuff Surgery I was referred to Groschan & Associated where I met Melissa. Both my surgeon and PT told me full recovery would take about 8 months. With the help of Melissa I cut that time period in half. In just 4 months I am back playing tennis as good as ever (maybe even better). The secret to success is doing exactly what you are instructed, not more, not less.

"When I had a compression fracture in my back, my doctor recommended Groschan & Associates. I was assigned to Emily. I did what she told me to do and I got a LOT better. A whole lot better. I'm 75 so I'm not sure what can be reasonably expected, but I'm extremely grateful for Emily's conscientious, sympathetic encouragement. She gave me a lot to think about in terms of recovery. I'm very, very pleased about the time I spent with her. "

I never wait for my appointment and the physical therapist is always right on time. Each time Jim Groschan has worked with me, he has been able to quickly diagnose the area of my pain. Jim has an amazing ability to teach his patients how to improve posture, exercise properly, and demonstrate strengthening exercises which each time resolve the pain. Plus, Jim has a great personality and makes it all seem fun!! "

"Over the years, I have been a patient of Jim Groschan for various orthopedic problems.
About ten years ago, I had a frozen shoulder, which was extremely painful. After working with Jim and his associates, the pain went away and I was able to regain full motion of my arm. Four years ago, I broke my shoulder and was unable to move my arm after being in a sling for a month. Once again, I regained full motion of my arm after working with Jim. I know several people who have broken their shoulders and not one of them has the range of motion that I have. Most recently, I sprained my ankle. Again, I went to Jim and he was able to eliminate the pain.
Not only is Jim an excellent practitioner, he is also caring, friendly, and punctual. Most importantly, he patiently teaches his patients what they need to do to correct the problem. He leads by example. As a result, his staff treats the patients in the same courteous and caring manner that Jim models.
I have and will continue to highly recommend Jim and his practice to my friends and family.

Although I have been a patient at several other respected PT firms in Maryland and Florida I can state without reservation that the Groschan team is absolutely the top of the list."

"My primary care doctor sent me to Jim when I had a disk problem, that had me in a lot of pain and very worried about what would be needed to resolve the issue. Dr. Gordon said Jim was absolutely "the best" and I believe her. His assessment of my issue was very thorough, and I was impressed with his vast knowledge and attention to detail. Jim cured the issue and educated me about what had caused it, and what I could do to help prevent another incident. I am back to working out as often as I can and completely pain free.
It is also comforting to know that if anything like that ever happens again, I know exactly where to go!"

"I was lucky when I broke my clavicle. I was lucky because my wife had been to see Jim Groschan for issues with her knee. When the orthopedist prescribed physical therapy, my wife pointed me in the right direction. I was concerned about restoring a range of motion but, importantly, I didn't want my golf game to suffer too much. Jim fully understood both issues and addressed them in a thorough and professional manner. It is now 4 months since the injury. I'm happy to say that that the range of motion in my shoulder is almost fully restored and I can play golf without pain. if anything, I've picked up a couple of yards with my driver."

"I was fortunate, my wife had been to Jim because of a hip replacement and said I had to see him. I saw Jim both prior to and following bilateral knee replacement at age 70. Jim’s more than my PT guy, he is my advocate and coach. We worked on exercises that strengthen my knees prior to the surgery so that I would be in better condition for PT following the surgery, about 5 weeks of prep. Following surgery, we focused on doing things right/correctly/proper form; relearning how to walk properly, doing steps up and down correctly, as well as getting up from a sitting position, many new routines were provided for at home practice, as well as, continuing my strength training. I am told that I may be one of the exceptions as I was walking without a cane within 2 weeks of surgery; I am able to go up and down steps confidently; riding a stationary bike for 20 minutes or so at a time, as well as, walking 3 miles daily, weather permitting, as it is winter time. I am almost 7 weeks out of surgery and continuing to improve daily; not leaps and bounds, but small, noticeable, incremental improvement. I highly recommend Jim Groschan and Associates; everyone there are the best!"

"Groschan & Associates are very professional.You see it when you walk into their office. Their approach to fixing your problem is thorough. Jim Goschan's approach to work on your posture even when you don't realize that could be part of your problem is most effective. When you need to schedule with another associate you do not miss a beat. I have been away for two months but following the stretches, I was given with good results."

"I have been treated (and taught to do exercises) for two major joint problems, both of which are now completely resolved. In fact, I was amazed the other day to realize that I no longer remember which knee has the partially torn meniscus. Groschan physical therapists are genuinely concerned about patient outcomes and very engaged. Plus, they are very, very precise about how exercises and stretches are done, leading to better results. And yes, as others have said, the office staff could not be more helpful or smart about the way they handle appointments, insurance, etc. I have sent several friends to Groschan & Assoc., and they have all thanked me for it."

His staff is also very friendly and extremely helpful. I also love the fact that every patient is treated in their own private room. Whenever I have an issue and cannot play golf, I see Dr. Groschan and in 3-4 visits, I feel much better and I'm back to the golf course. I would strongly recommend Dr. Groschan. He is an excellent physical therapist and a very empathetic individual."

Unfortunately, I have had a fair number of injuries over the years and it is comforting to know I have a team I can depend on when I need them. I get a full session of hands-on treatment from a PT as opposed to a few minutes with a PT or PTA and then supervised exercises."

"Through many years I have worked with Groschan and associates for various issues.
They have each time been understanding, patient, and helpful with each problem, and helped me to a great outcome.
Jim, originally was my primary PT in my early visits. But, when our schedules didn't allow our working together, each and every PT that I had thought the years have always been extremely qualified and helpful me to recovery, and might I add I have been a patient of Groschan for 15 years at least for varying chronic issues. And they always get me thru to feeling well.
What for me has stood out also is their attention to producing a clean, orderly, friendly environment. Recommend my clients, friends, and gladly, a lot of them already have availed themselves of their services with the same happy outcome."

From the friendly receptionist, the ease of making an appointment to the wonderful physical therapist, Cindy Hoerl, my experience was a positive one. Cindy took the time to listen to my problem and tailored a program to fit my health needs as well as my personal schedule. They give you the one on one time you need, that many places skip because of insurance requirements. They were wonderful, highly recommend them!"

Jim and his staff are more than outstanding. Each and every day you are greeted with a warm smile and a great understanding of your problem.

"Groschan & Associates actually deserves 10 stars, not 5! I could not possibly recommend it more strongly. Over the last two years, I've had a number of injuries and conditions necessitating PT. Several good friends told me about Groschan. It is one of a kind. Every therapist there is completely competent, personable, encouraging, and top-notch. Unlike so many other PT centers, Groschan & Associates therapists give one-on-one treatment the entire time, meaning no wasted time waiting for someone to come to you. I've been treated for low spine issues, damaged hamstring, rotator cuff injury, and now a degenerating knee. I have complete confidence in the care I am receiving each week."

"Everything about participating in Groshan & Associates Physical Therapy was a positive experience. When I first started I was in a lot of pain and Jim gave me lots of ways to ease that pain on day one. After that, the sessions were filled with comforting treatments and helpful exercises, most of which I still do. Most important was what Jim taught me about my body, the importance of my posture, and how I can make decisions to keep myself physically strong and healthy. It was easy to make appointments, and I was taken on time. My shoulder is better than new, and I have this group to thank for that. I recommended a lot of my friends who have had similar experiences. I know where I will go next time I need the best physical therapy!"

I am having hip replacement surgery later this month (03/2016) and will be going back to Groschan and Associates for my post-op therapy. In addition to my therapist, everyone who works there was pleasant to deal with."

"5 years ago I had an excellent experience rehabbing muscles after a hip replacement with Jim Groschan as my PT. Now I have an Rx for PT due to back muscle issues. When my spine doc recommended two sites for PT near my home, I passed on the suggestions. It is worth the 20-mile drive for me to learn from Jim Groschan about the structural reasons causing my muscle issues, to be listened to and treated as an intelligent patient, and to have practical exercises that are not just healing but strengthening my back muscles. The office staff is flexible and they cheerfully find appointment's that fit my schedule. When I finish I will not only be healed but will be educated to keep my muscles strong."

Instead of having surgery, I am headed to the golf course! I appreciate the professionalism and the competence of this well-run office. They are on time, don't waste a moment, and provide direction and support for therapy and exercise at home to complement their work in the office. Time there isn't wasted on completing insurance papers or waiting around for equipment or therapy. A special shout-out to Melissa who was as determined and dedicated as I was to my rehabilitation. She helped me get through the injury physically AND mentally and showed a great deal of personal concern.---Robert Dubansky"
