What Our Patients Are Saying

  • I just wanted to commend the Physical Therapists Jamie Swale and Tom Toothaker, Victoria Bartnikowski, PTA and the intern Jamey (whose last name I also don’t know) for treating me.  My last P.T. experience at another facility was a disaster. My pain increased and I ended up on a cane. This time, my treatment made me better, and the exercises I received for at home will help me be pain-free and also increase my strength. Thanks to everyone for a great experience! Barb… Read More

Barb Abraham – Physical Therapy

  • On 8/17/16, I had a total knee replacement performed by Dr. Boyd Haynes III. In the past, I used another physical therapy center, but after visiting OSC’s physical therapy center, I was extremely impressed! My Physical Therapist, Dr. Jamie Swale, and her Physical Therapist Technician, Maria Shanks, have done a phenomenal job during my PT! My last day is scheduled for 11/3/16 . In the beginning, I went to physical therapy three times a week for the first two months and am now down to two days… Read More

Kathleen Howe – Physical Therapy for Total Knee Replacement

  • I would highly recommend OSC’s Dr. Jeffrey Carlson, my Surgeon, who successfully performed two TKR operations (within the past 2 years) and who guided me on my journey to total recovery through therapy. I further recommend the therapy program offered at the OSC establishment. My 20 plus therapy appointments with the OSC Newport News Therapy office, found the staff extremely professional and friendly, starting with the appointment staff at PT’s front office. My therapy evaluators/trainers… Read More

Charles Bellinger – Total Knee Replacements & Physical Therapy

  •   Just recently finished my Physical Therapy at OSC and wanted to say to anyone that is looking to go into therapy, you hopefully have a choice where you want to go.  My experience at OSC (Orthopaedic & Spine Center) was a very positive one.  I found each and every person I dealt with extremely personable, professional and made me feel a part of a team, oriented with one goal, to get me back to pre-injury status. My team was Dr. Jamie Swale, DPT, Jonathan LoRusso PTA, Cait,… Read More

Betty Deans – Physical Therapy for Musculoskeletal Injury

  •   Dr. Jamie Swale and and PT Tech Mrs. Maria were a pleasure to work with. Their patience with me was exceptional. I had several other pre-existing conditions with my neck and foot which made the treatment a bit more challenging. They were very understanding and worked with me to treat my lower back issue. I can’t thank them enough for all the helping me to learn what I need to do to continue to improve and prevent the pain from returning. Thomas… Read More

Elizabeth McLane – Physical Therapy for Shoulder Pain

  • Attended physical therapy for lower back pain and realignment of hips. During the process I was encouraged by the care shown to me to remedy physical conditions through strengthening and corrective measures. There were several team members Dr. Jamie Swale, Victoria, Heather, Fred, Maria and Tom who assisted me and their instruction, patience, and encouragement to go further in the therapy aided in my recovery. It can take a village and this group of professionals gets it done. Also kudos to… Read More

E. Lee – Physical Therapy for Osteoarthritis of the Knees

  • I would like to express my sincere thanks and appreciation for the phenomenal services of my Physical Therapist, Dr. Jaime Swale. She is the absolute best. I am a 70-year-old female that was suffering from a frozen left shoulder. My upper arm was immobile. She was extremely competent and professional and had me immediately performing exercises that I felt were far beyond my abilities. She was personable, readily listened and responded to my concerns, and adapted her plan to my needs. She and… Read More

Ivy Lee – Orthopaedic Care and Physical Therapy for Frozen Shoulder Syndrome

  • It is two and a half months since Dr. Boyd Haynes III, from Orthopedic Spine Center in Newport News, performed my total knee replacement. There are four things to consider when having a knee replacement. The first is, having a list of questions ready for your surgeon. Secondly, find an excellent surgeon, Dr. Boyd Haynes III for example, who listens to your concerns and considers everything before replying. Third, make sure you do your physical therapy exercises as instructed, remember to… Read More

Kathleen Howe – Total Knee Replacement

  • Want to give a shout out for OSC PT –  Dr. Jamie Swale and especially her technician, Maria. I have a lot of arthritis in my lower spine (it’s rampant in my family of 8 siblings). Recently, it flared up considerably. OSC-Ortho Dr. Carlson referred me for PT. Dr. Swale interviewed me and has supervised my progress over the last 6 weeks. I have a couple more weeks to go. All the techs have helped me well, but Maria deserves top kudos for her thoroughness and rigid execution of all exercises…. Read More

Francis Glynn – Physical Therapy for Spine Arthritis

  • I would highly recommend the physical therapy program offered at the Orthopaedic and Spine Center. The staff there is extremely professional and friendly. My Doctors, Swale and Osowski, PTA Bill and PT techs Maria and Jamie, were outstanding in helping me achieve a better quality of life when using my left shoulder. Their advice, knowledge of the injury and what exercises to prescribe, to strengthen and heal the shoulder, allowed me to reach my goal in a minimum amount of time. I would… Read More

Jimmy Powell – Physical Therapy for Low Back Pain

  • I was sent to the OSC Physical Therapy Department after seeing Dr. Carlson for my back issues.  The PT Program would consist of one-hour session twice a week for six weeks, under the supervision and care of Dr. Jamie Swale.  However, after a few sessions, the PT was interrupted, after an evaluation by Dr. Carlson of my MRI showed the severity of my condition.  Dr. Carlson decided that surgery would be necessary to correct my issues and I consented to have surgery. Shortly after undergoing… Read More

Salvador Rodriguez – Physical Therapy Pre-and Post Surgically for Lumbar Spine Fusion Surgery

  • Thank you doesn’t begin to express how grateful I am for having the absolute BEST Physical Therapy Team in the area. Having had two rotator cuff surgeries, a shoulder manipulation, and almost 17 months of PT, I know I could not have made it through without this dedicated team. There were days I was ready to give up, but Dr. Jamie Swale and the entire team were supportive, encouraging, and I always left PT with my attitude adjusted and ready to tackle another day. I highly recommend OSC PT -… Read More

Jackie Smith – Physical Therapy for Rotator Cuff Surgeries & a Shoulder Manipulation

  • Dr. Jamie Swale and Fred Wintermantel, LPTA,  did a wonderful job with my therapy. I had a hip replacement and was very much in need of therapy.

The whole staff was friendly and helpful. I would recommend them highly. Dr. Swale and Fred, thank you! Janice… Read More

Janice Irwin – Physical Therapy after Hip Replacement Surgery

  • I had a lumbar spinal fusion surgery in August 2018 at OSC with Dr. Jeffrey Carlson. He referred me to OSC Physical Therapy with Dr. Jamie Swale and Victoria Skay. These women were great. They listened to my concerns and goals as I wanted to get back to my active lifestyle quickly. The balance between being careful but still challenging was perfect and they got me back to running and swinging a golf club within 6 weeks. I am five months post-surgery and still using the stretches and… Read More

Kyle Haymes – Physical Therapy After Spinal Fusion Surgery

  • What sets Dr. Jamie Swale apart from the typical Physical Therapy is her keen ability to target treatment with one’s life style and pursuits in mind. After my initial evaluation, she developed an exercise set for me to increase range of motion and strength as they related to golf… my pursuit. She proves a most pleasant, yet focused therapist who makes certain every minute of treatment time is spent productively. (No joking around, let’s get to work!) I have already recommended Dr. Swale… Read More
