  • I would recommend coming here first before any other place if you are in need of some physical therapy.

    I’m Frank, I have been bothered by lower back and knee pains for over 6 years as my career path involves a lot of running and lifting. I’ve been to physical therapy at 3 different Air Force bases, as well as 4 different physical therapy offices in Tampa, St. Pete, and West Chase. I found this little place called Life In Motion out in Pinellas County just off of Hwy 19. The staff here is very friendly, and what they do is like nothing I have ever experienced in all of my visits to physical therapy at other locations. The staff combines heat, physical massage therapy, followed by PT, and ice. It’s a combo that has truly helped relieve much of my chronic pain issues. I love this place and have moved all of my therapies to Life In Motion because they are just that good. I would recommend coming here first before any other place if you are in need of some physical therapy.

  • Very glad I was referred there and very much looking forward to future appointments!

    Had my first appointment today for back pain. Cannot say enough good about it from the moment I stepped in the door. The front desk staff greeted me promptly, got my paperwork, and were very kind.

    I was quickly taken back for my appointment. Each and every staff member was very friendly. It had a family-like atmosphere, and the staff was fantastic at their job. Once I got back there it was straight into identifying the issue. From there he explained what the issue was and went into treatment. Very glad I was referred there and very much looking forward to future appointments!

  • They take super good care of their patients and I can’t say enough good things about this place.

    I ruptured my Achilles’ tendon about 4 months ago and was referred to Carlos and his team by a close friend and I really didn’t know what to expect from a PT clinic. I absolutely think this place is amazing. Not only is my leg feeling way better and healing faster and getting stronger than it was for what I was doing. The atmosphere is super chill and I feel like I’m at a spa. They take super good care of their patients and I can’t say enough good things about this place. I highly recommend and will be doing so for everyone that asks me.

  • Adrienne, I don’t know what I would have done without you, thank you for everything!

    First, I would like to say that Life In Motion has been an amazing experience for me. Not only is it one of the most welcoming places I have been but also all the staff is very friendly and treat you like family. Adrienne was my therapist and when I started going I could barely pick up a grocery bag but now I can pick up cars! Just kidding but really, I feel normal again and I feel that all the challenges are gone. To everyone at Life In Motion, thank you for all your help through this process. Adrienne, I don’t know what I would have done without you, thank you for everything! Carlos, thanks for keeping me laughing, my friend!

  • I do not want to have surgery again, but if I ever need it, I want the team at Life in Motion to handle my recovery therapy.

    Life In Motion gave me back my wrist. I had prior experience with therapy that was not positive, but the team at Life In Motion was amazing. They created a plan that helped me get full motion in my hand. They adjusted the schedule so I could complete all of my treatment. Overall, excellent experience and excellent recovery. I do not want to have surgery again, but if I ever need it, I want the team at Life in Motion to handle my recovery therapy. Thank you!!!!

  • I felt like I was leaving my friends when I had to go home!

    For my first total knee replacement, I went to another physical therapy place for 5 months and never achieved over 83-degree bend! It was more a gym and almost never did they touch my knee. Second knee replacement on the same knee I went to Carlos at Life in Motion. Tamara and Carlos’s hands-on methods really work! 5 Stars plus! I felt like I was leaving my friends when I had to go home!

  • They truly care about their patients, their safety, and their healing.

    This place is extremely knowledgeable. They have taken into account all of my surgeon’s notes and protocols. They follow protocol precisely and at the same time will push/encourage you to make improvements based on your healing progress. My surgeon had complimented this office because they have me walking again and building muscle as I should. Finally, they truly care about their patients, their safety, and their healing. Thank you to the entire team here.

  • I would recommend Carlos to anyone seeking to manage their back pain.

    I have had back issues for years. Two back surgeries and years of working on my feet have increased my back pain issues over time.

    In 2017 I was again at the doctor’s office seeking relief from nerve pain in my legs and feet. After cortisone shots, prescriptions, and a consultation with a surgeon, I decided I wanted to go with the least invasive treatment. I asked my physician if I could try physical therapy for relief.

    It had given me relief in the past. I asked to be referred to Life in Motion because of a previous experience with their office for hand therapy.

    Carlos was patient, kind, and caring. His therapy gave me back my back! I have full mobility and a significant reduction in pain and numbness. I still use the techniques he taught me to ease stiffness and occasional aches. I would recommend Carlos to anyone seeking to manage their back pain.

  • I highly recommend Carlos and his staff they are all incredible, very friendly, and very professional.

    Carlos has definitely restored my faith, not only in humanity as a whole but in physical therapy. I thought I could handle it on my own. He is an incredible therapist. He knows what he is doing and really does care about the patient. He really does understand the value of honestly caring for people. I highly recommend Carlos and his staff they are all incredible, very friendly, and very professional.

  • Thank you to the team for making my recovery less painful and more bearable!

    This is an amazing team to work with! I had ACL surgery and went through a lot during the first 2 weeks. I had another physical therapist at a different location I worked with, but I didn’t feel comfortable or had the connection. That was before my surgery.

    After my surgery, LIM did everything to ensure that I don’t go through any more traumatic events. LIM made my visits comfortable, adding a sense of humor, always listening to my fears, and what my concerns were. I get a straight forward answer. Unlike my other place where I had PT. I don’t even hesitate about going there. I look forward to each of these visits. When I cannot come, I’m miserable!

    They are learning sign language to add to the fun of therapy and to make it easier to communicate. They are always asking how I am doing, what’s going on in my life, how my family is going. They are so thoughtful and are like family to me. Their advice is amazing and worth taking ☺️ Thank you to the team for making my recovery less painful and more bearable! LIM is like a family to me and my family.

  • I would recommend them to anyone.

    I have had two knee replacements since August 2015 and they have given me physical therapy on a regular basis. They are fantastic too, and I would recommend them to anyone.

  • In my first 4 visits, I have increased my mobility!

    From my first contact with Life In Motion after my surgery, they were welcoming, friendly, and professional. In my first 4 visits, I have increased my mobility. Adrienne Driggers Riveros is the hand therapist and co-owner and listens to my concerns. She helps me with my rehab and even re-dressed my incision & removed the staples! The entire staff is great. It makes going to therapy a pleasurable experience!

  • I am so appreciative of everything they did for me, and I highly recommend them!

    I came across Life in Motion in 2016 after a freak accident with my hand. I had surgery for a cut/damaged nerve and was sent to hand therapy for a period of time.

    That’s when I met the Life in Motion family, and I’m so glad I did! This family-owned business is run by dedicated professionals who are experts in the field of recovery and healing. They spend quality time with each of their patients, listening and understanding their concerns, in addition to sharing their knowledge and best practices.

    After a couple of months of therapy with Adrienne, my Occupational Therapist, I was able to do “normal” things with my left hand again, and started to get feeling back- where I didn’t have it before!

    I’m so thankful for the help of the Life in Motion staff, who got me feeling back to myself again. I am so appreciative of everything they did for me, and I highly recommend them!

  • The treatment I received in 4 sessions at Life In Motion surpassed the treatment I received in the previous 3 months at home in Toronto.

    I was visiting Florida from Toronto, Canada. I needed to continue my treatment for my Lumbar spine issues while I was there. I found Life in Motion on the internet. When I called to make an appointment the staff was very courteous friendly, polite, and helpful right from the start. My First appointment with Carlos Riveros was amazing. He was very professional and gave me a thorough assessment. Carlos was able to identify my exact problem area and began treatment immediately that day. I felt better right away. My continued treatments made me feel hopeful and confident on my road to recovery. I never felt rushed and was allowed to perform my exercises at my own pace. The treatment I received in 4 sessions at Life In Motion surpassed the treatment I received in the previous 3 months at home in Toronto. Thank you, Carlos and Staff, you guys rock!

  • ince starting my therapy, I’m now able to sleep through the night which was not possible before.

    I’m 54 years old and consider myself very active. I’m an avid road cyclist for over 14 years now. I recently developed numbness and tingling in both arms. My orthopedic doctor ordered an MRI which showed stenosis in my neck but not enough to cause the extent of what I was experiencing. He ordered a nerve conduction test in which surprisingly, I was diagnosed with Carpal Tunnel in both wrists. I knew right away that this was caused by years of cycling due to improper hand alignment and pressure on the wrists and thumb during long rides.

    I came to LIM and saw Adrienne after an online recommendation as a hand therapist. I wasn’t able to sleep through the night due to severe nerve pain and I wanted to avoid surgery if at all possible. I decided on Occupational Therapy as an alternative.

    I found Adrienne to be pleasant, professional, and extremely knowledgeable. She provided me a splint for my thumb pain and an at-home regimen to keep my symptoms manageable. Since starting my therapy, I’m now able to sleep through the night which was not possible before. I don’t believe Carpel Tunnel is “curable” without surgery but it is manageable. I will continue to follow her regimen and will also be mindful of hand alignment during cycling. My goal is to remain surgery-free. Thank you, Adrienne.

  • I’d return for services in the future if needed and highly recommend them.

    I’ve had a positive experience following a total knee replacement. The physical site is clean and in order, mask use strictly enforced. The staff is super friendly and knowledgeable, working well together for a good rehab outcome. The administrative staff and therapist do a great job coordinating scheduling to prevent long wait times. I’d return for services in the future if needed and highly recommend them.

  • Carlos was excellent and I highly recommend him.

    Carlos got my knee back to normal after a full replacement and did it after I was laid up with other problems. My rehab was sidetracked. Carlos was excellent and I highly recommend him.

  • I would and do highly recommend their services when you are in need of therapy; before or after surgery.

    Since I first met the staff, I was pleasantly impressed. Being in the dental and medical profession I appreciate a clean, organized, and professional atmosphere. This therapy facility actually exceeded my expectations in every way. I would and do highly recommend their services when you are in need of therapy; before or after surgery. I feel blessed to have found Adrienne.

  • The best physical and occupational therapy office in Florida by far, exceeded my expectations 10 fold.

    The best physical and occupational therapy office in Florida by far, exceeded my expectations 10 fold. Adrien was my therapist and she was an exceptional one at that, took the time to get to know me and my family. Whenever I brought my daughter with me, EVERYONE gave her attention which neither one of them had to do. Truly magnificent front desk in Sam and Ashley. A warm and inviting environment, peaceful, everyone keeps a smile on their face that’s real. Each person speaks to you, knows your name, and is concerned about your recovery -whatever it may be. I highly recommend them to anyone. Whatever you have to do to get into therapy, do it, then come to life in motion for the best experience.

  • The whole staff is very welcoming and accommodating with scheduling appointments and helping each other with therapy.

    I came to Life In Motion to rehab a broken thumb. Ms. LaRae has been very helpful from the beginning and throughout all my 16 appointments. She is very knowledgeable, personable, and very friendly. She made me feel very comfortable every time I had my appointments. The whole staff is very welcoming and accommodating with scheduling appointments and helping each other with therapy. I highly recommend Ms. LaRae and Life In Motion to anyone needing occupational and physical therapy.
