testimonial

“Can’t say enough good things about Kelly Letellier and the staff at your General Booth office. After years of chronic pain, dry needling turned out to be the answer for me. It was just luck that I found some one who did dry needle therapy and I am forever grateful. Thanks for all the great care.

“SPT took special care to listen to my complaint and design a plan that was specific to my case. They were careful with working with my daily needs and ensured that my condition was improving every step of the way.”

“They showed me the path to keep improving myself with the training given. By using what I was shown, I can build myself to better health.”

“Just a few sessions of dry needling by my physical therapist, Kelly Letellier, at Southeastern Physical Therapy has relieved pain in my backside that I’d been living with for over 18 months!”
