Stiff, worried and in pain.
After over 25 years of working and rearing a family I was told by my GP that I needed to loose some weight or else! I joined a Gym and 8 months later did my first 5 km race. After that it was 10 km race, a year later sprint triathlon. The more training I did I started to get aches and pains in Knees, Hips and my neck. I go to Dr Jake the second I have pain and he thoroughly assessed me. Then he explains exactly the problem, fixes it and gives me stretches to get stronger. Dr Jake is phenomenal.

Got My Life Back
I walked into his office in bad shape. I could not touch my knees, had unbearable sciatic pain and numerous back problems for 6 years. I had wasted thousands of dollars on MRI's and visits to traditional back doctors and surgeons. They never helped me at all. I had not played tennis or golf for 5 years. Jake's diagnosis and treatment was very different and incredibly effective. After seven sessions I am running, swimming, playing tennis, hitting golf balls, paddle boarding and lifting weights.

Straightened my slouch
Years of competitive cycling put a huge strain on my neck, back, and legs. I couldn't touch my toes; I could only reach to 8 inches above the ground. My neck drooped forward with my ears being roughly 6 inches in front of my shoulders. Since I started with Dr. Burman, I can now touch my toes and my ear and shoulder are in alignment. Also happy to report my new posture and range of motion has helped my tennis game dramatically. Definitely recommend him!

5 Star Results
I was suffering from tendonitis in my elbow. Dr Jake corrected this in the first visit. Turns out it was my neck not my elbow. I have spent 30 years suffering from my back going out on me. Turns out it is a weak gluteus muscle. I wish I had met Dr Jake years ago. He is truly amazing in his store of knowledge and professionalism. He teaches you how to treat yourself. Once you see him one time you will be back!!

I have been a athlete for most of my life. I have been very lucky to meet and work with health professionals that have treated elite athletes, war torn soldiers, as well as normal everyday individuals. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have met and worked with Dr. Jake. I will continue to work with Dr. Jake for as long as he deems necessary. He has the unique ability to understand the difference in a individual. Basically, "he gets it".

Personable and Personalized
Jake is 100% completely present from the moment you walk through the door. He sees his clients as whole people and not just their symptoms. Jake understands the body and has the tools to treat your injuries, so you can live a full pain free life.

Great physical therapist
I had been having back pain and numbness down my legs and feet for 7months within 12 visits, Dr Jake alleviated all my pain! I would highly recommend him. Not to mention his upbeat personality! He truly cares about what he does for you. A real sweetheart of a man, and a very professional physical therapist.

Saved my back!
I have been seeing a chiropractor for years and haven't been able to fix a chronic back issue. After seeing Dr. Berman for a few months, my back feels better than it has in years! I recommend him to everyone I know!

Most Recent Visit
I had not been to see Dr. Berman for some time. He recently worked me into his schedule for a chronic problem that was affecting both my work and personal life. It was another amazing experience. Between the therapy and the exercises he taught me to prevent a recurrence, I've remained pain-free!!! Two thumbs way, WAY up!!

I would advise anyone looking for a good physical therapist to choose Jake Berman. He is unlike any therapist I have seen before. First of all, you see Jake for a full hour, uninterrupted. .In this time he reviews your situation with you and then works on the area of concern. He is knowledgeable and supportive. In a month I have significantly reduced my body pain and increased body movement. I attribute my success to Jake.

Simply The Best!
If you need physical therapy for any condition Dr. Jake Berman is the one to see in Naples. Even if you have already tried other therapists or treatments please get a 2nd opinion from this very kind, confident and knowledgeable therapist. He really listens to what you are experiencing and individualizes your treatment with a combination of manual therapy and exercises you can easily do at home based on your injury and capabilities. I highly recommend Berman Physical Therapy.

Dr. Berman has been helping me with my Achilles Tendon for over a month now. I admit the treatments hurt a bit initially, but it's made a tremendous difference to my life. I am able to walk now, and play tennis a bit. Thank you!
Feb 25, 2017http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30290843
After calling several offices and speaking with a few receptionists, and even making an appointment elsewhere, I received a call back from Dr. Berman. Within 5 minutes I knew he was the right fit for me. Jake asked all of the right questions and made me feel very confident that he would be able to help me. He is incredibly knowledgable and very personable. I am confident that if I follow his direction and do the work, I will be pain free in no time. I would highly recommend Jake! Thank you.

Knees now work
Jake, your manual therapy method has allowed me to continue playing tennis. I am 78 years old and so pleased that I can still play the sport I love so much. After two sessions and doing the exercises you showed me, I am able to move much better and pain free on the court. I have recommended you to all my friends. HOPE YOU KEEP DOING WHAT YOU DO!!!

SPINAL STENOSIS RELIEF
Jake, Your knowledge of the workings of joints and muscles is encyclopedic! The symptoms from my spinal stenosis were relieved from my first visit with you.You worked to loosen my joints and muscles. You gave me exercises and I made a concerted effort to achieve the results you said were achievable with disciplined hard work. After several weeks I was walking distances I never thought possible and playing golf with minimal discomfort. Thanks Jake. I would recommend you to anyone. Bob Morin

Jake, I can't thank you enough for getting to the root of my back problems on the very first visit. I have learned so much from you about how the body works and what I can do to help mine stay pain free. I would strongly recommend you to anyone needing PT services.

Physical Therapy that works!

Jake is knowledgable, and skilled at his craft. You get a full 60 minutes with him where he gives hands on treatment and tools to implement at home to support the healing practice. 2 months ago I could not lift my arm over my head and now I am back to full range of motion and can hold handstands for 1-2 minutes. He is down to earth, easy to talk to, and genuinely cares about his clients physical wellbeing. I would definitely recommend him for any physical therapy needs.

excellent personalized service
Jake showed me how to exercise after a severe back injury, now i am at 100% and doing my full exercise routine. He is the best PT i have ever been to.

My chiropractor said I should stop running.
I had begun to believe my chiropractor was right; that I should give up on running as my activity of choice. After 9 months of hearing that, and not being able to comfortably walk for exercise, let alone run, I decided to seek an evaluation from Jake Berman. It was one of the best choices I have made in my entire life. I can say that, because I feel like Jake "gave me my life back". I just completed a 1/2 marathon, and didn't experience pain afterward. Thanks, Jake!

If results are what you are looking for, this is the practice for you. Not your typical 3 times/week for 6 weeks PT where you see the Doctor the first visit and then his assistants for future visits. After the first visit I was considerably better. After two visits 90% better so I added my chronic back pain to the mix. Jake is very confident and knowledgeable. He evaluates and makes changes each week based on your progress. And I have definitely had great results.

Learn how to reduce or eradicate your pain
Dr. Berman evaluates your condition through a thorough, yet simple series of "exercises". After determining why you're in pain, he sets out to relieve it, so you continue doing the things you love . Each session is a combination of continued evaluation, targeted muscle massage (ahhh!), correction of the practices that got you into this state and at-home stretches/exercises to enhance improvement. Thanks to him, my pain is far less often, and easily tolerated, not front and center.

Bad hip and back
I have been seeing Jake Berman for about a year. He has made it possible for me to get my life back .
Oct 27, 2016http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30290843
After a long driving trip I ended up with lower back and hip pain. Even after seeing my chiropractor several times and being straightened out I was still in pain. After Jake worked his magic on me yesterday I slept without the hip pain for the first time in two months. I'm doing the exercises he prescribed and have hopes of being totally pain free soon. I would highly recommend Dr. Jake Berman to anyone in pain.

I'm a Believer!
5 yrs ago I was diagnosed w a bulged disc in my lower back after an injury. Since that time I have experienced varying degrees lower back pain. During flare ups told to take pain meds, hot/cold, relax & heal then do suggested exercises. Recommendations came from my GP, 2 Back Specialists & PT's. During a recent flare up I called Jake & got a different diagnosis, exercises & learned to manage my problem on my own. I can't thank him or recommend him enough!!
Oct 18, 2016http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30290843
Jake is very knowledgable and friendly. Quickly diagnosed my issue and went straight to work. Best My back has been in a very long time. Would definitely recommend.

Best PT I have ever been to
I have been to a lot of PTs in my life and Jake Berman is unique. The approach is holistic yet pragmatic. I had back surgery a few of years ago and when I went to Jake about six months ago, the reason for the surgery was starting to come back. It's gone now. He does a combination of hands-on therapy and exercises that really works -- and he is a smart, amusing, nice guy. Your pain will go away and you won't be bored -- how 'bout that!
Sep 22, 2016http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30290843
My first visit with Jake was quite nice, He showed me three exercises that he says will help me. I started yesterday and hope I get some relief soon. I have a severe sharp pain in my lower side of my back.He diagnosed me as having a shorter right leg and a pelvis disorder causing me to have poor posture. At this point I will continue to do the exercises that he suggested and hope for the best. I would recommend Jake for any back disorders, he will help you out.

Plantar Faciitis is no match for Dr Jake!
Straight to the source with careful full body review. One of the most PAINFUL body ailments I have gone through. I now know the cause and how to work through it and be Pain Free. Call him.

Passionate about his work
My entire family has seen Dr. Berman and we all achieved relief from our symptoms and stretches or exercises to do to sustain our relief. Since we are an active group, a couple of us have had to make a few return visits to get readjusted and get additional instructions. At times, we have needed him with short notice and he has always gone out of his way to somehow make his schedule work to help us! He is a very caring and competent clinician and I highly recommend him!

I have been to Berman PT twice now. The first time we worked on a lot. My sciatic nerve was being pinched constantly by a past injury. Dr. Berman addressed the issue with my sciatic nerve and gave me a core exercise to do. This chronic issue resolved itself within three days. Now almost 11 months later I returned after a tough Ironman race. He re addressed the hip but said my core was great, but with all the running my gluteus medius was weak. One day later & the exercises have already helped!

Berman Physical Therapy is a one on one physical therapy session. No down time as the therapist walks away to tend to two or three other patients. Jake puts you through a thorough workout designed to your specific case and needs. I've been to two other therapist and neither gave me the personal attention Berman Physical Therapy does!

" He's passionate, confident and patient, with what he does!" I can't thank him enough!
I can sit here and write this, saying I feel the best I have in two years!! I started having back and hip pain consistently, after being in a car accident. I've seen so many people and spent so much money searching for answers. All I can say is I wish I had seen Jake sooner. When I first met him, I was convinced that this was something I would have to deal with permanently. Well it's not! As Jake said," I gave you your life back". He did just that!!

Dr. Berman has given me back my life. I was completey disabled with a back injury in August of 2015. After two vision guided injections in my spin and several months of PT with another facility I was in severe pain and very limited mobility. After my first appointment with Dr. Berman I was able to walk, sit, and stand without pain. Dr. Berman continues to provide me with treatment and exercises that have given me confidence, and strength to return to gold and tennis, life without pain.

I am a 55 year old endurance athlete who has had issues with pain and limitations in my sport, due to consistently pushing myself to the limit. I've had chronic SI joint, periformis and hip flexor pain for years that can be debilitating. Dr. Berman's approach to quick and effective relief has allowed me to continue to do what I love! I highly recommend him to any athlete or non-athlete for thorough, effective and prompt relief of pain to allow you to continue to live your life!

I could not lift my coffee cup Thursday morn. Today I can with ease! Dr Berman's understanding of my problem was amazing and the execution for remedying said problem was done with patient hands and knowledge. I would recommend his touch method of physical therapy to anyone!

Finding an answer to neck pain
I'm having surgery for a disc in contact with my spinal cord. Due to previous heart surgery I won't be released for general anapestic for another month. Jake did a great job to make my life more pain free until I can get it fixed. Slept well for the first time in some weeks.
Mar 4, 2016http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30290843
I have been in pain for six months as the result of L5 - S1 herniated disc. I had two series of vision guided injections and two months of Physical Therapy. I was released from Physical Therapy on 12/24/16 but was still in a great deal of pain and could not walk, sit, or stand for any length of time. The pain was still in my back and leg. So,on 3/2/2016 I decided to schedule a visit with Dr. Berman. On 3/3/2016 after my first visit I experienced immediate relief. 3/4/2016 no pain,
Feb 10, 2016http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30290843
First time working with a Dr. of Physical Therapy. What a great experience. Dr. Berman quickly identified the cause of my issues and worked professionally and diligently to resolve them. His focus on immediate pain relief and proper corrective exercise is refreshing! I highly recommend him.
Nov 27, 2015http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30290843
Dr. Berman was so helpful. I came in with several past injuries that should have had PT but it was never recommended by my doctor and he managed to help solve the issues of injuries that were years old. I am very pleased! I highly recommend him!
Nov 13, 2015http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30290843
After months of neck pain and many visits to doctors, chiropractor and physical therapist, I found relief. Dr. Berman's hand's on therapy definitely worked for me and I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Oct 13, 2015http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30290843
Dr Berman is very knowledgeable in his field, and his hands on approach is very helpful and therapeutic. I had hip pain for over a year and after one visit it is much improved! Dr Berman also gave me some exercises to do at home which have been very helpful. I will definitely be back to Dr. Berman in the future!
Oct 7, 2015http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30290843
Dr. Berman was very knowledgeable and polite. He is very thorough and takes time to explain what's going on and how therapy will help you. I've had back problems for a number of years and seen several doctors but never really experienced any results. Since going in for my first visit I have seen tremendous results and can't wait to keep on this road of healing. I would recommend his service to anybody!
