Shoreline Physical Therapy Sport and Spine Specialists


This was my third time using Shoreline Physical Therapy. Each time with different injuries, I've had superior help in getting mobility back. The staff is professional and pleasant to work with. I have continually told people about the group and wouldn't go anywhere else at this point.
Making sure that our clients are always happy with our service is always the way to go! 🐐

Thanks for the review Stephen of Shoreline Physical Therapy Sport and Spine Specialists!

Hey guys! You are not going to believe this.. guess who tore their other rotator cuff?? Yep, this girl!! Surgery in a week, see you soon! 😩😩😩
Great instructors
I cannot speak highly enough of this practice as a whole...from those who greet you at the front desk to the PTs who provide treatment...they’re all a fabulous and fun team! Having a degree in exercise and a background in physical therapy (and having been a patient at different practices) I am picky about the practices I go to as I want knowledgeable and honest people working with me. Shoreline definitely fits the bill! They are patient, willing to try different approaches when something doesn’t work, they’re friendly and fun to work with!!!
I had been limping w/terrible knee & leg pain for a month.
Doug assessed my issues and had me start stretches to help relieve a pinched nerve.
He walked me through each stretch and encouraged me to do my homework.
In a few short weeks I was walking straighter and my pain is gone!

Thx Doug & Shoreline PT for all that you do!!!
Many of you know and love, Juvenal Junior Zarate Quezada our former beloved #15 Hammerheads Player. He is a loyal father, husband, son, brother, friend, teammate, and member of our El Cerro Grande Family. On May 3rd, after several medical tests, Junior learned from his doctor that he has Stage 4 Colon Cancer that has spread to his liver.

Junior and his beautiful wife Bessy are ready to fight this dreaded disease in every way possible. Junior is the father of 3 little girls, Polette (age 8), Athena (age 5), and Antonella who was just born on April 12th.

Junior currently does not have insurance. We wanted to reach out on behalf of the Zarate family and seek your prayers for his healing and invite you to join El Cerro Grande at 5120 S. College Rd. in Junction next MONDAY, JUNE 11, when Junior and his Family will receive 50% OF ALL SALES and any monetary donation you may wish to give Junior and his family to help with medical costs and any future needs he and his family may encounter while he undergoes treatment. Junior has been the “giver” in helping others for many years and now we have an opportunity to give back and show our support to him.

We appreciate your prayers and support! 🙏

Also, We appreciate the help from local companies supporting this cause Dr. Richard Butler, DDS & Associates, Shoreline Physical Therapy Sport and Spine Specialists, Carolina Sports Medicine & Orthopaedic Specialists, Forever Vinyl Inc. and AmeriSpec Inspection Services

Went to Shoreline for hip pain thinking it was age/arthritis related but after my consult with Jai he determined it was actually my back. So after prescribing some stretching exercises my hip felt extremely better in such a short time. Also had the opportunity to work with Steve & Doug. These folks know their stuff and make therapy a pleasant experience.

Testimonial Tuesday:
I was introduced to Shoreline via Dr. Yeargan before I underwent stem cell therapy. Dr. Yeargan highly suggested a visit to Shoreline to have my gait checked out. Since my left knee replacement, I was having a lot of pelvic pain. After a visit with Jai, he advised me about the difference between the length of each of my legs, and how that affected my gait. Jai fitted me with custom orthotics. He has been working in this area for 20 years and it was quite apparent he knew what he was doing. Within a day of wearing the orthotics, my pelvic pain had diminished greatly. That was approximately a month ago. To date, no pain in my pelvic area! Truly a miracle for me! :)
