Rachel Cantore is my go-to personal trainer when I need to get motivated to work out. I look forward to working out with her! I also like the Wellness Institute facility. It's clean, has all the best equipment and I like that I'm not training in a regular "gym" I'd suggest giving Rachel a call if you need accountability and motivation and someone who can help you get moving again! Thanks Rachel!

I was sent to Wellness Institute by my doctor for chronic pain in my foot. I especially liked that everyone encouraged me on my journey. Even though my pain level didn't go away. They improved my strength and mobility in my left foot. I would definitely go back if I need physical therapy again. They are a staff of people who all support the patients. Especially, when you want to give up. They are truly a unique group of individuals.

Very competent and friendly staff. I was referred to the Wellness Institute because my orthopedic doctor wanted to make sure the I had good manual therapy as well as pt during my shoulder rehab. Craig has certainly provided both. He gave a thorough exam, explained clearly the course of action and led me very professionally through my shoulder rehab. I have had other issues and have received excellent results using dry needling, and other state of the art methods. The golf and tennis hitting areas are a nice plus, as they allow you to get back into the game under the direction of your therapist.

I have recently been using the Wellness Institute for physical therapy on a problem with my Achilles Tendon. I could barely walk when I started. Now, three weeks later after six sessions and faithful adherence to the at-home stretching exercises, I am pretty much pain free. Thank you Alan Manning!

The whole team at wellness from Craig, Helen, Jen, Maddie, the rest of the talented folks and the facility show you why this is not your regular "PT place". The thing that impressed me was not only did they focus and resolve my issues but more importantly showed me how to keep them from happening and ultimately be my own "pt person in a pinch". Give them a try and you like I will be very happy you did. Fred

“Many thanks for introducing me to Craig and the Wellness Institute. I was totally blown away by his knowledge and understanding of the muscular-skeletal functions of the body. As discussed, I’m sure he’ll offer some ‘hope’ for an improved quality of life.”

“Your Wellness Institute has been exceptional, especially Donna Pagano, who worked with me after I had back surgery for spinal stenosis. After the surgery, I was still incurring some pain in my hip and lower leg and through Donna’s diligence, the pain has completely subsided. It was not just that she knew what exercises I needed to strengthen my leg, but she further knew how to do a fascial release, and it totally relieved my pain. The staff has always been respectful and helpful, as well. Thank you.”

“I am extremely happy with the therapy I am receiving from the Wellness Institute! From the initial meeting with Craig Weyer through my 3 times per week therapy with Kelly, they put together a good plan and adjust it regularly, according to my improvement. They check that I am doing the exercises correctly each visit and check with us during the exercises. They don’t just throw you on machines or repetitive exercises. They combine exercises, machines and therapy. Again, very happy.”

The staff is friendly and supportive and Craig and his team of PTs are Incredible. They are skilled, knowledgeable and committed to your recovery. I wouldn’t go anywhere else.”

“I can’t begin to tell you how good the whole rehab center is. Especially the girls at the reception desk – Maddie and Melinda. They are not only beautiful, but very cordial and pleasant. No matter what happens, they always have a smile. The rest of the staff are also very good at what they do.”

“The Wellness Institute is great!! Craig and his staff are as friendly as they are effective, whether working on what ails me or providing me with fitness tips that I will carry on for life. They know what therapy is all about! The center’s tennis and golf training areas are a real bonus, providing their patients with inspiration and training for the light at the end of the rehab tunnel.”

“Without a doubt, the physical therapy experience at the Wellness Institute is the best in the Lowcountry. From when you first walk in the door, Maddie and Melinda are ready for you. They will prepare you for your physical well-being, the first working your smile muscles. Then it’s off to the back, where employees with a vast amount of experience in “torture” will get you back into shape. As you leave, Maddie and Melinda will say goodbye in such a way, you’ll look forward to coming back for more.”
