  • Thank you Dr. Scott, Awa and Diane for being so great with us. Fred and I really appreciate all that you have done over the years to keep us in good physical condition. We have been going to you for the past five years and since we are members of the Senior Community, our various parts are wearing out. But you have helped us with three replaced knees-between the two of us-shoulders that did not move, legs that have developed pains and hands that have arthritis. We have returned again for spine and leg problems. A big thank you for advising us when Fred's blood pressure dropped and he spend the weekend at St. Charles. Without your advice, we would not have known enough to check his blood pressure and he could have developed serious problems.

  • My orthopedic doctor recommended physical therapy for my painful and swollen osteoarthritic knee. Recommendations from that doctor and my friends resulted in my choosing Dr. Scott. After evaluation, some of my therapy consists of machine workouts, massage, and even ice treatments. It takes approximately one hour to complete everything. It's a relaxed atmosphere with knowledgeable, hardworking and friendly therapists. The best part is how much better I have been feeling since I started therapy.

  • PHYSICAL THERAPY WORKS!


    I'm very grateful for the excellent care that has been given to me at Leisure Physical Therapy located at 679 Whiskey Road in Ridge.


    Prior to falling and dislocating a shoulder I had never had physical therapy and my attitude towards it was that it was nothing more than pampering. I know today that physical therapy is a life-saving and life-sustaining endeavor.


    At Leisure Physical Therapy I've personally experienced the hands on healing that is afforded to clients. Clients are made to feel they are the only person being cared for at the moment and, in fact, they are.


    I've heard the term "physical terrorist" bandied about and I've learned that the "terror" I was experiencing was my own apprehension. I was haunting myself with the fear that my shoulder would be injured again during the therapy. When I learned to relax and trust my handlers the situation became a downright pleasant experience.


    I am aware that the mind/body connection is very real and Dr. Scott L. Paskiewicz has afforded me restoration in both functions. I will sing the praises of Leisure Physical Therapy to anyone and everyone who will listen.

When I was not able to see a specialist for a month after my accident- after PT I felt I didn’t need to see him. My leg felt 90% better than when I started 2 weeks ago. I would highly recommend Leisure PT and Dr. Scott to anyone!!!"
