Awful.I spent a month going to physical therapy here for a running injury in my ankle. The Physical Therapist I visited didn t give me strengthening exercises or stretches, but simply massaged the sore area for 30 minutes in my 45-minute visit. During the month that I visited, my injury didn t get any better and I had to drop out of a marathon (and \$100) that I had planned to run. Also, the PT there kept telling me, just come in again next week, and THEN we ll fix it . At the end of a month he was simply stumped as to why nothing had improved. Meanwhile, with my insurance the visits were costing upwards of \$400 (per appointment).I stopped going and stopped running out of sheer frustration, and was out for another two months until a friend recommended a different PT. Today was my first visit there and in twenty minutes the new PT told me more than the Aurora PT told me in a month. He told me about my muscular imbalances, my foot type, and my gait inefficiencies. He gave me a whole regimen of strengthening and stretching exercises and showed me just how weak my hips were. This was the care I never received at Aurora. And the cost? \$80, not \$400. I will never recommend Aurora Sports Medicine to a friend. In my eyes, the care I received at Aurora was robbery and stopped me from running for over three months.
