“Dan has changed my life!! I suffered from a hip labrum tear and bone impingement. I postponed surgery because another physical therapist told me I would never run again. Not an option for me!! After many months of pain, I found Dan through a mutual friend and I couldn’t be happier! Dan took me through pre-op preparations to help quicken recovery. I’m currently 3-months post-surgery and am recovering in record time. Dan understands both the physical and mental challenges to a sports injury. I am extremely thankful to have such a personable and knowledgeable physical therapist!“

“SSOR is top notch. I had the pleasure of working with Mallory Maloney, one of their PT’s. She was personable, professional, and highly recommended. I appreciated her honesty when she felt like my time with her was done, not string me along and collecting my money (which I dealt with with a different local PT office with my son). I definitely would not hesitate to return to SSOR with any new injuries.“
-Andrew Matushek, Shawnee.
“I went to SSOR for ankle rehab after a pretty serious ankle injury. I worked with Curtis and only have positive things to say. Curtis is obviously very knowledgeable and knows the right techniques to get the job done. I felt very confident and well-cared for when going to SSOR and would definitely go back in the future if I injure myself again.“

“Dan Lorenz is an expert. He quickly diagnosed my problem, established a course of therapy and exercise and solved my problem. I’m now pain free. Each of the staff members are professional an experts in rehabilitation. Dan knows all of their patients, their level of progress and where they need to go with their treatment. I can’t recommend any group of therapists more.“
-Stewart Stein, Leawood.
“I went to this therapist based on the recommendation of my orthopedic surgeon after meniscus surgery. He was the surgeon for a number of high level professional teams so I asked him who he’d go to and the immediate response was Dan Lorenz at SSOR. I can’t rave enough about Dan and his associates who work for him. They’re incredibly knowledgeable and use a reasoned approach to therapy. Most importantly, they get results! After having success myself I recommended to my wife to use them. She had a nagging neck issue that for years she’d been getting shots for pain relief. After seeing an orthopedic surgeon for years she finally went to a neurosurgeon who also found no obvious cause, and it was getting worse each year. It had progressed to numbness in her arm and constant low level pain at the base of her neck. Dan reviewed the information, made a treatment plan and got immediate minor relief, which over time reduced the problem to almost nothing. I’ve been to many PT’s over the years. This is a shop that’s invested in fixing the problem. It’s the best I’ve been to.“

“Trying to find out what was going on with my leg/hip, I suffered through X-rays, a CT myelogram, and bad physical therapy until I found Dan. Literally my physician told me that if Dan could not figure it out, then he did not know what he could do for me. In less than 10 minutes Dan found the problem and had solutions to end my pain/spasms. Since then he has become my “go-to” person! I gladly refer folks to him knowing that he and his staff will be able to help the most difficult scenario. I go back to him if I feel something is not right for evaluation, correction and help. He has given me back my sleep and my activities. Cannot recommend he and his staff enough!“

“I started seeing John Smith at SSORKC in November of 2013 after battling back, hip, and leg pain for over a year. A radiologist’s read of a hip MRI conducted in December 2012 indicated no structural damage. I am very active and participate in softball, flag football, basketball, running, and cycling. I had just finished competing at the NatiionalDuathlon Championships and qualified for Worlds 2014 but finally admitted I needed help with the pain. John worked with me for over 8 weeks and recognized that something wasn’t right and urged me to see a hip specialist.
After consulting with 3 orthopedic surgeons, John’s suspicion was confirmed – torn labrum of the right hip (radiologist missed that in the December 2012 MRI). Surgery was scheduled for January 24, 2014 and John continued working with me right up to surgery. Five days after surgery, I resumed seeing John with the goal of competing at the National Duatlon Championships on July 19 in order to hopefully qualify for Worlds 2015 since I had to miss Worlds 2014. Plus, John knows that I want to return to all my other sports and tailored my physical therapy toward those goals. I recently had a 4-month post-op evaluation with John and because of the personal training program he provided, I passed with flying colors! I would highly recommend John Smith and SSORKC. Their personal attention is invaluable and has me back to doing the things I love.“

“Simply put, Dan Lorenz is one of the best physical therapists in the Midwest. As a high school and collegiate athlete I suffered several debilitating injuries that called for physical therapy. During that time, I had the opportunity to work with a number of different physical therapists, none of whom came close to reaching the level of knowledge, attention to detail, and practical application skill as Dan Lorenz. Whereas other clinics and therapists simply read the doctor’s prescription and gave me cookie cutter programs to strengthen my rotator cuff, Dan made a thorough evaluation of my injury and then developed a program specific to my individual needs. The results speak for themselves: I spent 3 months basically wasting my time at the other clinics, while it took less than a month of working with Dan to get back on the courts. If you are serious about getting better, look no further than Dan Lorenz and his colleagues at SSOR.“
