    The Onward Experience

    What Our Patients Say
    Testimonial Quote BG Icon
    "I started seeing Kelly to address lingering issues with my lower back a hip arthroscopy a few years back. After working with numerous other providers, was still having issues. After just a couple of sessions with Kelly, my back pain disappeared and I was able to keep doing my favorite activities without any pain or limitations!
    ~ Jared P.
    Testimonial Quote BG Icon
    "As a CrossFit athlete, I wanted to work with a PT who understood the demands of CrossFit and could optimize treatment with this in mind. I have been able to return to what I love, AND I have more mobility, strength, and knowledge thanks to Dr. Benfey. Her approach is comprehensive; though I saw her for a hip issue, she also helped me address related issues to improve my overall performance."

    Testimonial Quote BG Icon
    "The day I started working with Kelly Benfey, I could barely walk, because I was in such pain. By the time our first session was over, I was able to walk home, pain free. She was very professional and knowledgeable and not only worked with my injured quads but also put me through workouts that gradually increased in intensity and strengthened my quads until I was able to start working out normally again."
    Matt C.
