"I am so grateful to Chris Garavito & his team (Gianna in particular) for their care & attention. I have been struggling with lingering neck pain/stiffness from a 12-hour brain surgery in 2019. As a lifetime athlete, I was frustrated that I had reached a healing plateau. After only a few weeks working with Par, I am seeing improvement in my neck mobility, as well as reduced occipital pain. Chris listened intently to my complex story & quickly homed in on & explained what structurally was hindering my progress. I will continue with the at-home regimen they have recommended and will continue to check-in with Chris as needed. I am hopeful that I will eventually be pain-free and will inch my way towards the freedom of movement I was always accustomed to. Thank you to Par!"

"When I started P/T with Chris I wasn't able to lift my right arm above my chest area. I was told by my physician that I was going to need a reverse shoulder replacement because the tendon was so far from where it should have been. I have so much more movement in my right arm since I went to PAR hoping that there was an alternative to a shoulder replacement. Today I would like to share that if anyone has any issues that need treatment to please give Chris and his terrific team a chance to help you relieve your pain issues. They are a fantastic, goal oriented team and I highly recommend that you schedule at the very least a consultation, but I would give them a chance to help you! They did wonders for my issues!

"I can't say enough about how awesome Brandon and the team are at Par Physical Therapy. After months of traditional PT with limited results, I went to see Brandon at Par and the improvement has been amazing. I have 90% range of motion in my shoulder and the pain is gone. And Brandon made sure I knew what stretches and exercises I could do to continue my rehab and get back to 100%. They would be my first call if I were injured or needed any physical therapy."

"Far and away, the best physical therapy experience I've had. They use modern technology and applications that other therapists do not use or have available. The entire staff is welcoming, friendly and explains then course of treatment at every stage. I'll definitely return regardless of the ailment. I was treated after multiple shoulder replacements with severe complications. This is the first therapist (Brandon) that checked my shoulder and back alignment, and worked with me on my other shoulder, which had been compensating. Again, highly recommend !"

"Went in to Par Physical Therapy for a shoulder issue. I was unable to do any type of press motion without extreme discomfort. Brandon was quick to act and immediately went to work on getting me back to square. After about two months of designated shoulder exercise, dry needling, and cupping, I’m finally back to my old self with no discomfort. The genuineness and confidence in that room gives you such encouragement. Between Liam, Gianna, and Brandon, thank you all so much. Never thought I’d get back to this point without surgery. 10/10 recommend"

"I met Chris when PAR PT came to our Boot Camp. I’ve been suffering with knee and shoulder issues for several months. The staff at PAR takes the time to understand your issues and provide techniques that are replicable at home and in the gym. The array of other treatments they offer are amazing for healing - I took advantage of cupping, dry needling w/ stim and laser. Cannot rate them high enough for their knowledge, professionalism, care of their clients and offering an environment that’s fun and welcoming."

The condition itself is usually not curable without surgery, but after several therapy sessions the pain and the number of episodes was greatly reduced. Very happy with the results.

"My surgeon recommended physical therapy before we run the gamut of tests, MRI's and pain management. I had no idea who to turn to for assistance. My doctor made no recommendations. Not being athletic or a golfer, I was reluctant to try PAR. However, I am most elated I contacted PAR. The results on the first day let me know I had made the wisest choice. Brandon and Liam have directed me in a manner most productive. My aging body has a ways to go, but thank God I have the best therapists. I feel human again!!!! I can move whereas before I was struggling to make it through a day. Now I'm walking and bending and enjoying life again. So happy for the work of these guys and gals. Thank you!!!"

"My name is Jean and I live in Myrtle Beach. I suffered a terrible fall, causing serious back injuries that required hospitalization, surgery and then physical therapy. At 71 years old I doubted that I would be able to recover from these injuries. I am so glad I chose PAR Physical Therapy. My first day I was nervous, I met Chris and his staff, they made me feel welcome and at ease. I told Chris My goal was to be able to walk without the aid of a walker or cane. I expressed to Chris my doubts that I could achieve it. He smiled and said, don't worry we will get there and he was right, we did. Chris and his staff gave me the confidence to trust that the therapy plan was going to help me reach my goal. I was well into my therapy before I realized that I was getting stronger, my balance was getting so much better. I learned to do things the correct way, how to bend, pick an object up, and more. Chris was right, I reached my goal, I am walking on my own. I am so grateful to PAR Physical Therapy, to Chris and his staff. I was devasted by my injuries, but my time at PAR gave me back the life I thought I had lost. I am happy to recommend PAR Physical Therapy to family and friends."

"My experience with PAR Physical Therapy has exceeded my expectations. Having had an extensive spinal fusion as a teenager, I have seen many physical therapists over the years and none of them can compare with Chris Garavito. He has a knack for knowing just what treatment will help and on top of that he keeps the atmosphere jolly so that you can actually have a good time there! And they offer cupping, a wonderful therapy that increases blood flow and loosens the muscles and fascia. Want to throw away your Tylenol? Go to them."

"I have been to other PT's and by far I can say that this team is superior they have allowed me to endure the pain, worked as a team to make sure my exercises fit your post surgery needs. Their knowledge of techniques designed to help patients go back to their normal life.Working along side of the therapist are the residents also, which makes PAR a teaching PT which is very important. Some places are so big that you are treated as a number but here you are family with a name. I recommend PAR to anyone, they are professional,clean, organized, and calm for each patient, along with laughter, staff challenges, contests and compassion, and help you with scheduling at your convenience. Thank you PAR for always going the extra mile . What a breath of fresh air . You all love what you do and it shows.

"I was introduced to Chris and PAR Physical Therapy when I attended one of their shoulder workshops. I had the beginning of problems with my right shoulder. I was very impressed by Chris' approach to physical therapy which was different from other PTs I had gone to for various joint replacements. Chris and his staff gave me two more years of shoulder pain relief before arthritis got the best of me. After a total reverse shoulder replacement, I came back to PAR for rehab. I can't say enough about everyone there. Their work ethics, their professionalism and dedication are like none other. In addition, they are all fun and it doesn't take long for the patient to become a friend to the whole staff. I just "graduated" from therapy but I know I can go back at any time for a "refresher" if I need. PAR is by far the place you want to go!"

It has been so incredible to be able to perform better with no pain!!! I wish I had met Brandon years ago! I like that they are very hands on with their treatment and have multiple ways to treat you.

"I am so happy with my physical therapy at PAR. Chris Garavito came to Pure Barre in Murrells Inlet to talk about services they offer to people who are experiencing pain or discomfort due to overwork or injury. I tweaked my hip months ago while traveling, & was feeling pain. My hips & knees were so tight & inflexible. I was starting to work out again at Pure Barre to build strength & flexibility, but felt it would be even more advantageous to add PAR for physical therapy to help speed up the flexibility & strength. Good idea! I honestly feel that PAR has helped me tremendously. They worked with my insurance, schedule, listened & worked with me. I was feeling much better after the first 2 sessions! They have a marvelous app that show VIDEOS of the exercises that I’m to do, which is most helpful. And I click on the exercises when I’m done which helps me with accountability!

"I’ve just completed my second series of sessions with PAR. We again addressed ongoing issues with my neck, which has resulted in headaches, especially when sleeping. I started this series with Chris and finished with Brandon. Each applied a combination of manipulation, massage and traction to provide me with relief. I also received effective exercise therapy from Jessica, Liam and Daniel. This combination of treatment has resulted in less pain in my neck and many fewer headaches. In addition, each of the above professionals helped me with some soreness in the area of my right hip flexor which flares up when I’m stiff or after a run. Again, symptoms have subsided. All of this treatment takes place in a fun, open space setting with a lot of good natured chatter between the therapists, which inevitably draws in the patients. Once you are a patient at PAR you become a friend. I have and will continue to strongly recommend PAR Physical Therapy to anyone with muscle, joint or similar issues.

"Simply put, this physical therapy clinic is amazing. Ive been treated for chronic low back pain and leg pain due to disc problems on and off here for a couple of years.The therapists and staff are knowledgeable, skilled and gifted, and just plain nice. In my opinion what distinguishes and characterizes this business is the personal approach offered. They dont just ask about your back pain etc but try to understand you and your life style with a warm personal approach to designing a treatment plan . The open clinic area often has conversations flying around among/between staff and patients, making therapy more relaxing and fun. For a personal example I had extreme difficulty in raising my leg associated with and in addition to back pain. With one treatment, Chris was able to treat my leg, allowing almost full range of motion for the first time in years. as well as significant reduction of back pain. So yes, I highly recommend PAR PT and would only consider them if I ever need more PT, you should too."

"I 1st went after seeing an ad for shoulder pain. I went to see Chris right away, I didn't want the other solution, surgery. Best decision I made. Since that time I have been back for back pain and strengthening the core muscles Chris. This past May I was involved in a pretty bad accident. The worst of it was the cervical breaks, 5, with C2 being the hangman's break. I thank God every day that I survived it, most don't. Physical Therapy was suggested by my neurologist. I went in to see Chris with doctors orders. I wouldn't go to anyone else. I trust him literally with my life. The c2 break is doing better, but still some issues. I also have back and wrist issues, from the breaks. Back and spine are #1, then we can work on the rest. Thank You Chris and other well trained therapist for doing all you have done and currently doing. Jenny Corrow"

"The entire team is wonderful!! The first time I went to PAR I was barely able to walk or sleep due to a hip alignment issue that was causing extreme pain. I was terrified to go to physical therapy having never been before and was worried I would have to have something surgery related done to it. The first day Chris was able to adjust my hip in a way that caused all pain to go away immediately. Throughout the next three months, he and his team taught me how to keep it in check with exercises so this hopefully doesn’t get that bad again. Would recommend them to anyone and everyone!"

After a few weeks of professional therapy I am glad to say that I played golf pain free last Saturday. Par was recommended by a friend and I would highly recommend them to you. Their interest is in you getting better and they will do what it takes to make it happen!!"

"Brandon and Chris took great care of me. I’m a 71 yo guy with a bum knee who likes to hike. The doctors are telling me I’ll need a knee replacement before long. I wasn’t ready to throw in the towel and went to PAR. They did a lot of hands on stuff in addition to an exercise regime. I went for seven weeks and felt strong enough and agile enough to finish my section hike of the Appalachian Trail. Here’s my picture; I’m in the left. Try them out; I was very satisfied!"

"I got rear ended about a month ago and went to check this place out after experiencing lower back pain and various random aches and pains. Chris did a hands on screening and I immediately felt better. Jess then did an excellent job at explaining the whole thing to me in layman's terms. Eva and Holly at the front office are always friendly and were prompt in setting up my appointments and payments through State Farm. My lower back has significantly improved but a couple of weeks ago I felt a new symptom. I started feeling some pain on my right wrist and my ring and pinky fingers on both hands were tingling and sometimes numb. Scott performed some screening exercises to confirm his and Brandon's suspicions regarding the issue. Scott then gave me some exercises called nerve flossing and I immediately felt improvement. He then gave me a thorough explanation of this process. I really appreciate the team's knowledge and expertise. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. The whole place always looks and feels very clean. Also, their camaraderie and team synchronization is outstanding."

"I came to PAR due to an ad on Facebook for a shoulder pain seminar. I have a partial tear in my rotator cuff and have been favoring it for years trying to NOT have surgery. Favoring it led to a very small range of motion and even more pain. It was a vicious cycle but I didn’t know how to break it myself. When I read the ad I saw that there were other patients like me that PAR was able to help so I skipped the seminar and made an appointment. I was in therapy for about 3 months and am now back in the gym with my new increased, pain free, range of motion. If I feel my shoulder bothering me again, I will not hesitate to call for help because I know it will work. The team makes you feel welcome and confident in their ability and yours. I cannot believe how much more I can move and how long I spent not knowing it could have been fixed… Thank you Brandon, Daniel and Holly for getting me started and to Chris and Jess for binging it home, I feel so much better and had fun with all of you."

Chris and his fellow PT's and PT assistants are some of the best I have ever encountered. My sessions always started on time and the time passed very quickly. I didn't realize how hard I worked during each session until I finished. My recent shoulder rehab allowed me to move my shoulder much easier without pain and strengthen the muscles. I found out that my high school neck injury ( 50 + years ago) is one of the causes of my shoulder problems today. Having Chris work on both my neck and shoulder have allowed me get relief that I didn't think possible. Thanks for a great job and for the very pleasant and fun rehab sessions. "

"This group of people are fabulous at what they do! I was referred for physical therapy to treat low back pain which I was having for almost a year. I tried other options like chiropractic and acupuncture without much success so my expectations that physical therapy would help were low. I was referred to PAR and I have had a lot of improvement in my pain. I was waking up in the middle of the night because of pain. Sharp pains would occur with almost any activity or even just getting out of a chair. Anyone with chronic pain knows what a toll it can take on your mental as well as physical health. I have just finished the therapy that my insurance would cover so I thought I would just be given some exercises and manage on my own but I thought wrong. I can continue to follow up intermittently for any issues I have and any therapies that I need. It’s good to know that I can see someone that already knows me and my history for any future problems. Thank you for all you do!"

I originally thought PT may be an overkill for an elbow that should just rest and heal, but since I worked my elbow from some pain to a lot of pain 24/7, I tried PAR. I wish I hadn't waited. My physical therapist, Brandon and PTA, Daniel, had the elbow pain in control and then eliminated after only 2 sessions while introducing the stretching and strengthening program. My arm is getting stronger and I'm doing the exercises at home with results and staying pain free. Phew! They've made time to work on part of the problem, which is coming from neck/back, shoulder.

I don’t have any other experience with another Physical Therapy clinic but did feel very comfortable with them. Came back for follow up on my rotator cuff to see how I was doing and Chris notice I was limping. Was having lots of pain in my knee and calf on my left leg. After a brief exam he said he could help and let Jessica explain in more detail what was wrong. So, I came back again for more treatment and within a few weeks got getting better.

Just finished my 3rd week and what a difference in my overall mobility as well as the pain in my shoulder is gone. Don’t think about going here, RUN here, they are amazing. Thanks to the great team at Par Physical Therapy!"

"My husband and I both spent 4 weeks at PAR Physical Therapy. I had a strained calf muscle and he had injured his shoulder. Brandon was our therapist and we saw him twice a week. He was very friendly, knowledgeable, and used a variety of techniques according to our needs as our injuries healed. He always explained what he was going to do and he listened carefully to our concerns. He also gave us exercises to do for stretching and strengthening as we progressed through the process of returning to normal. The entire staff at PAR was professional yet personable. We would highly recommend using PAR Physical Therapy for anyone who is dealing with an injury and is eager to return to good health."

"I can't say enough positive things about Chris and his team. Chris was highly recommended from multiple people in my neighborhood, which is why I chose him to help with my neck. I have been to other physical therapists and none have done what Chris does. He is very thorough, and uses osteopathic techniques that have made a world of difference for me. From what I understand, very few physical therapists are trained to use osteopathic techniques. I also get dry needling that has provided amazing results. I get more relief with dry needling than any muscle relaxer I have taken. Jessica, the PTA, is also wonderful and very knowledgeable. When I have pain during my exercises she knows exactly what I should do to reduce the pain. I have learned a lot from her. The atmosphere in the clinic is wonderful. Everyone is always upbeat, smiling, and best of all, laughing and having a good time."

"I was introduced to Chris and PAR Physical Therapy when I attended one of their shoulder workshops. I had the beginning of problems with my right shoulder. I was very impressed by Chris' approach to physical therapy which was different from other PTs I had gone to for various joint replacements. Chris and his staff gave me two more years of shoulder pain relief before arthritis got the best of me. After a total reverse shoulder replacement, I came back to PAR for rehab. I can't say enough about everyone there. Their work ethics, their professionalism and dedication are like none other. In addition, they are all fun and it doesn't take long for the patient to become a friend to the whole staff. I just "graduated" from therapy but I know I can go back at any time for a "refresher" if I need. PAR is by far the place you want to go!"

It’s been a great experience. Chris, Jessica and Brandon are all so encouraging and professional. I backslid a few times on my at home exercises but realized I needed to get serious. Before PAR, walking up a flight of steps was very difficult and the idea of a walk in the neighborhood was just not possible. I’m now going up and down steps with just minor pain and I’m walking again. I’m at two miles now with 3-4 miles as my goal.

I had acl surgery in January and had been doing my therapy with another facility and due to insurance, my visits were over, but I still felt I needed therapy. I knew it was going to be an out of pocket expense so I wanted to explore my options and I went and checked out PAR PT and decided I wanted to continue my therapy there and try a different approach. The focus isn't solely on my knee and it's focusing on overall balance and alignment with proper form. If you're not doing your exercises correctly, you will be corrected 😉 which is a great thing when you are trying to get better.. Chris and his staff are always helpful and kind! From the moment you inquire about therapy to when you walk out the door after each session. I went in with hoping to have my knee feeling better to learning my hips are uneven and my weight distribution is off and in just the two weeks that I've been going, I feel so much better.

I started looking for a change and PAR Physical Therapy came highly recommended to me. 10 minutes into my first appointment I knew I was in the right place.

"Excellent care and very reasonably priced Recently I underwent shoulder surgery and my physical therapy was delayed over a month due to Covid 19 and isolation. My husband and I were also scheduled to come to Surfside, South Carolina for the winter and were due to leave before therapy could start. After doing a Google search of the area and speaking with Holly over the phone, I knew I found the right place. Since I was going to another state for care, my insurance would not cover therapy here. Not a problem at PAR. They have one of the best fee schedules for self-paying customers in the area. Due to the delay, my shoulder had tightened to the point raising my arm above my head caused excruciating pain. Chris immediately went to work to loosen things up. He is extremely knowable with Rotator Cuff problems and knew right were to start. Twice a week for two and a half months, Chris and Jessica worked their magic and was able to help me regain range of motion and strengthen my weak muscles. Chris even did video calls with my Ortho primary in Wisconsin and kept her updated on my progress. Every week I was given new exercise instructions to do at home and was very impressed that they have an APP for my phone, in which all my exercises were uploaded to. I’ll be able to take this with me and use this for many months to come. Now it’s time to return home but I’m going with a lot more movement and a lot less pain. I really enjoyed my time with Chris, Jessica and Holly. They make you feel VERY welcomed and “part of the family.” By the way, Chris has great knowledge on all things local which is a great distraction when sore muscles are being manipulated. Thank you Chris, Jessica and Holly- see you next year!"

Prior to seeing Chris, I had spent thousands of dollars at local chiropractors to treat my shoulder, however they never unearthed the true problem. During my consultation with Chris, he explained all the reasons a person can have shoulder pain/immobility, and upon examination, he found my first rib was out of place. After mobilizing my first rib during the consultation, I was able to lift my arm with a significant reduction in pain and that was just during my consultation. Just over three weeks ago, I was unable to put my hair up in a ponytail without pain, could not put my left arm behind my back, or use my left arm for daily living without severe pain. Today, I can and without pain!!! Chris checks in with his patients between visits, and it's evident he cares about his patients and their ability to live their best life. There's a reason there are walls of patient testimonials at PAR PT, I highly recommend going to see Chris and Jessica."

Probably one year ago the discomfort changer to pain particularly at night while trying to sleep. January of 2020 I gave serious consideration to a reverse shoulder replacement. With the pandemic upon us in March all elective surgery began to be cancelled as it was an elective procedure. Sometime shortly thereafter I saw via, facebook, a video presenting information about PAR Physical Therapy. I gave it some thought and scheduled a free comsultation with Chris GaravitoMSPT. This led to my active roll for PT for my shoulder. I am very thankful for the treatment I received and the fact that my range of motion as increase and I am much more able to before all activities of daily as well as my return to nine holes for golf.

"To start I have had two rotator cuff repairs both of which failed. I scheduled an appointment with my orthopedic surgeon because my pain level had begun to be unbearable. During that visit my two options were shoulder replacement or Physical Therapy. Timing being everything the weekend before my visit with my Doctor my wife saw PAR’s video addressing rotator cuff pain issues. I had scheduled a free consultation just prior to my appointment. I arrived at PAR and Chris started his evaluation. My range of motion was nearly zero. Chris did some adjustments and immediately my range of motion improved 100%. In the following weeks we added to my therapy and I saw continued improvements in strength and motion. We have now added strength training with weights and we are improving the muscles that remain able to be rehabilitated. As we make progress I am able to now use my arm and shoulder to do simple things that most don’t think about getting a container out of the fridge putting on your seat belt and most importantly getting a decent night sleep. I am certain with continued use of the exercises that Chris Jessica and Casey have taught me I will continue to improve. The most important thing is with no additional surgeries. Thank you PAR for all you do and have done."

"My experience with PAR Physical Therapy was truly a positive one. I first met Chris and Jessica prior to my right knee replacement surgery in September. Chris designed and implemented an exercise program to strengthen my leg muscle and to ensure balance a month prior to surgery. The program was done on site once weekly and at home daily. Any questions I had about the surgery and rehab was readily addressed and satisfactorily answered by Chris alleviating my anxiety. Once my surgery was done I met with Chris and Jessica three times a week. He said I was doing “awesome”. I asked why and Chris told me I had one of the best surgeons and an exercise program prior to surgery. I also think because I had one of the best Physical Therapists. Chris is caring and really takes an interest in his clients. I am now 6 weeks post surgery and can walk up and down the stairs with a normal alternating gait. I walk no longer with a limp. But over all, I am so glad the surgery is behind me and that I made the right decision. Thank you PAR Physical Therapy along with your staff. Donna Sherman"

What I discovered was my hip was doing great but my leg and back muscles were so weak, therfore my support system around the hip needed work. Chris is hands on and we went to work and n 6 weeks I have mobility and strength in areas that I didn't know we're weak. If u like golf, this is the right place. I would not spend the time to write a review if I didn't believe in what I experienced with PAR. They understand the game and want to help u get better. They have technology that u can't find @ other facilities that measures your rotation speed, balance, weight distribution at impact and basically any measurable aspect of your game. It then is compared to Tour specs so u can see real numbers for your swing!!! I literally have gained 7-8 mph n swing speed just by knowing what to work on. It's nice to find a business that matches your expectations."

I am so freaking happy and can't believe that I can rotate my shoulder and reach overhead now, its like a miracle. Chris has completely changed my view and ability of my shoulder, I went into this thinking ohhh here we go just another therapist and now I am like this man is a God send. The things he has done with my shoulder are unbelievable and I will talk him up and his ability until the day I die. It is amazing and I am in awwww of what he has done in 3 weeks. It really is a complete change and I can't wait to see what he can do with another 3 weeks. The pain and numbness has almost gone away and the motion has increased so much I might even be able to play golf or throw a baseball again with my kids, just thinking about that has me tearing up. I thought I would never be able to play catch with them like my father did with me. He is the best by far and I can't even imagine what my shoulder would be like in the next 5 years if I didn't find him. 5 star review more like 50 star review the techniques he uses I have not come across any physical therapist to date that has used them.

"I was referred to Chris through a friend, who was having great success with the PT he was receiving. I had tendonitis in my right elbow that was exacerbated by a slip and fall on my right elbow. Rather than doing soft tissue massage immediately, Chris evaluated my spine and found that my upper right rib was about an inch higher than my upper left rib. Most of our early sessions were spent working on realigning the ribs to get them back in the correct location. After that we began soft tissue massage and laser treatment. The procedures greatly reduced the pain to the point where elbow braces and drugs were no longer necessary to play golf. In addition to my elbow he worked on my lower back and left hip with a series of exercises and manipulations to realign them and keep them in place for the long term. I would highly recommend Chris if you have problems that PT would help resolve."

"If your looking for a great hands on therapist Chris Garavito is your guy. I have been to other therapists with little to no success. Chris was able to increase my range of motion so that I can now do activities that I haven't been able to do for years. I would highly recommend Chris."

"Having been through two physical therapists for extreme pain in my right shoulder & moderate pain in my left shoulder with no improvement (in fact, I was even more injured), I went to an orthopedic surgeon who did an x-ray & MRI and advised rotator cuff surgery. The pain in my right shoulder was bad enough to convince me he was right. So, I scheduled the surgery. However, in a phone conversation my brother spoke of Chris saying that he had been able to drastically improve his back pain and that I should give him a try. I did that & It has been the best health choice I’ve made. I cancelled the surgery & started therapy with Chris. My shoulder pain is diminished enough so I’m back to playing golf & doing all the things I love. I’m getting stronger with little pain & no thoughts of surgery thanks to the knowledge & caring of Chris. Not only do I consider him a wonderful therapist who works directly with me at each appointment, I consider him a good friend & a great guy."

"I injured myself golfing and was having trouble maintaining a grip with my right hand on the club as well as numbness in three of my finger and sharp pain shooting up to my elbow effecting my sleep. After visiting my Doctor, he suggested getting PT to resolve the problem before using medication. I visited Chris at PAR PT and after an exam he felt he would be able to isolate the issue and resolve over time. He did several procedures, straight needle, laser, message, and stretches. That all led to the pain reducing each visit and now I am pain free and back playing golf as bad as ever. He is very pleasant and up beat person, with a great deal of knowledge / understanding of the body and helping it recover on its own. If you have pain or discomfort I would strongly recommend stopping in and seeing him to help you resolve the issue rather than tolerating the pain and causing more damage to the injury. "

"I like the one on one throughout the entire appointment. Chris is up to date in all areas of patient care and is so committed to patient care. He is prompt, I get the exercises electronically which I prefer. He is forgiving when I don’t do them but is supportive for me to find time for me. Thank you Chris for being you"

"I've been a golfer for about 30 years and I haven't had this much range of motion for the last 10 yrs. Chris Garavito, with his exercise program and hands on treatment relived me of my lower back pain and numbness down my right side. I recommend him highly . He is awesome. "

"I had a Total Knee Replacement late 2017. After 4 months of physical therapy, I still had chronic knee pain, excessive swelling and limited range of motion. I was referred to Chris with PAR Physical Therapy by someone at Carolina Fitness on 544 in June 2019. After a few sessions with Chris my swelling is gone, pain is gone and range of motion has improved. I am very grateful to Chris and his physical therapy techniques. I start each day with Chris's recommended therapy exercises. I am walking faster and longer distances with no pain! I recommend PAR PT and Chris as he has greatly improved my strength, balance and my overall health."

"I would love to share my experience that I have had with Chris working with me concerning my hip. In the past 4 years I have dealt with hip pain due to a car accident and have been through pain management with many injections and 2 prior physical therapist with no positive results . No one has been able to help me to the degree that Chris has helped me. Chris has been very effective with his expertise in dry needling and many other methods of his superior physical therapy training that has truly been an answer to my prayers. Chris has one on one patient interaction versus being one person in a room full of people is very important to me. Chris listens and gives you his undivided attention. I have a lot of confidence in Chris and feel that he is like no other. I would highly recommend Chris with any physical therapy needs that anyone would have."

"I started physical therapy to try and alleviate the pain in my hip so that I could return to activities that I had to give up due to the pain. I initially received steroid shots from the Dr but they did not work. I was hoping that PT would give me some results. To my surprise after doing several weeks of therapy and following through with a daily PT home exercise routine , which Chris designed for me,I am now pain free and back to Zumba! I can't believe that in a short time Par Pt was successful in alleviating my pain. I will continue to follow through with the home exercise routine to keep my hip range of motion at its best. Thanks do much to a dedicated and professional PT. Thanks from Kathleen Kohl"

"We come to Myrtle Beach every winter to golf. On January 4th, I could not make a full swing due to a right shoulder problem and experienced a sharp pain with my take-away. A friend directed me to Chris Garavito at PAR PT who I met with on January 8th. After 3 visits, many different stretches and dry needling, I was able to hit balls with no pain on January 15th and play a full round on January 18th. I have seen Chris 4 times (4 hours) and consider my shoulder to be 100% pain-free with full motion. Chris cared for me and was anxious to get me to the golf course and he did. Very professional, a right-on diagnosis and a very quick fix. Thus, I am a fan and would highly recommend PAR PT."

"I walked into PAR Physical Therapy with walking-associated left hip pain and depression from not being able to run like I used to. Chris worked with me for almost 6 weeks, dry needling my tight muscles, teaching me exercises to strengthen my hip, helping me to avoid having hip surgery, and giving me hope when I had minor setbacks. He treated my whole body, not just the hip. He was patient, funny, and encouraging. This is my second PT experience and I’m so grateful. Today, I’m back to running and I’m pain free. #BestFeelingEver"

"I was referred to PAR PT because of excruciating pain in the left buttocks. It was continuous pain whether I was sitting, standing or walking. The first session I had, with the process Chris organized, I felt like I was on the right track. I was confident with his reputation and the entire process of what we were going through. As we progressed over the sessions, my time was well utilized at therapy and the exercises diminished my pain as well as improved my posture. I felt my energy level increase as the pain diminished. I am now free of pain and have much more energy and I am aware of my posture. I do not know any other way that Chris could have done better. Every activity is easier, I am more flexible, have more strength and I am most importantly pain free. I feel like my body has been awoken and I feel alive!"

"I’ve never had physical therapy before, I’ve only heard that it hurts, so going into this I was apprehensive. Chris was very thprough in explaining how he was going to help me and what was causing my discomfort all of which helped alleviate my anxiety. Along with dry needling, he gave me exercises to do at home. The dry needling wasn’t fun, but it hurt in a good way and I benefited from it. He was even kind enough to check on me afterwards. Highly recommend Chris!"

"I had a total hip replacement on 7/20/18. Great surgery and was home that afternoon. Chris showed up to make sure I was comfortable with the walker they gave me and showed me exercises I could do on my own. He also took the time to do several exercises with me. Over the past week, he has come by and helped me with things. From exercises to showing me how to properly use a cane. Tonight was great. I walked around all day without an aid and my limp has even gotten less. We are working on strengthening my leg with the new hip to get it back in shape. All of this is 6 days out of surgery. Can’t say enough about this company. They are the best around and my thanks isn’t enough."

"I came to PAR in April of last year after battling through a series of injuries during my college career. I played golf collegiately and now play professional and I can say without a doubt that Chris knows exactly what he is talking about. At first, he put me through a series of tests followed by some hands on therapy which was amazing. Specifically, the dry needling was a game changer for me. I have been to many massage therapists and physical therapists trying to fix a hip problem I’ve had for years and Chris was able to give me relief I never knew could exist. Every time I am back in Myrtle Beach training, I make sure to get in as many visits as possible with Chris because I know that when I leave, I'm going to feel 10x better than I did when I came in. Not only was he great physically, he also has tools that can help golfers achieve specific motions they strive for in the golf swing. Go see Chris if you want to be pain free and better at golf!"

"I'm a Senior and my range of motion was very limited. After just two sessions at PAR PT, I feel like dancing. My balance and stamina has greatly improved. I've just completed my fourth session and plan to continue. Can't wait until the weather breaks so I can play golf. By the way, there's a golf simulator right next door to his office and my game looks promising."

"I have been going to PAR Physical Therapy for a few weeks now and have been very happy with the results. I suffered an injury to my right shoulder a few years ago and haven't been able to use my arm well. Chris, the therapist, had me raising my arm over my head after the first session. Now we are stabilizing the shoulder and strengthening it. Chris is caring and concerned about his clients, and instinctively knows what is needed. The best part is that the clinic is inside the gym and I can go from workout to appointment or vice versa as needed, no travel! All in all 5 stars!"

"I have been seeing Chris for traditional physical therapy, dry needling, and deep tissue laser therapy for an overuse injury and I couldn't be more pleased with the results. When I started out at PAR PT I was unable to walk, use the stairs, or sleep without pain. After my initial laser therapy session I slept through the night for the first time in over a month and a couple of weeks later I am walking, taking the stairs, and rehabbing pain free. Chris thoroughly explained his treatment approach, answered all of my questions (I had many!), and addressed associated/underlying issues not just the injury. He is a true professional (I don't use that term loosely) whose passion for getting people back to the activities that they love comes through in each one-on-one session. I'm no stranger to physical therapy and PAR PT is second to none. Thanks so much Chris!"

"Par Phsical Therapy has been a tremendous asset in helping me get my shoulder to 100%. For about six years I have dealt with a sublexing shoulder that was hindering my ability to improve in the gym. My major issues were working out chest, and shoulders. I couldn’t do too much without it giving out and causing me pain. With only three weeks working with Chris (the PT) I have seen drastic improvements with my shoulder! I am able to workout harder and steadily increase weight and reps. I also have better mobility and less agitation with it. On top of that, Chris seems to really care about the improvement of his patients; the attitude he portrays with me and the attitude I have witnessed with other patients, is truly one of a kind."

When I first started with him the pain was almost unbearable. Chris really takes the time to not only treat you but also explains why and what he is doing. I have been having a lot of trouble with my shoulder for years and by far the therapy Chris has done with me have been the most effective by far. Thanks again Chris for all that you do. 💪🏋️‍♂️"
