What Our Patients Say

I was referred to Advent Physical Therapy for knee pain which somewhat limited my activities. My case was assigned to Heather Mol who diagnosed the source of discomfort and planned and taught me an ongoing program of therapy. She prescribed a number of exercises and stretches which proved to be highly effective in reducing my discomfort. Most importantly she was wise enough to know that muscles other than those in by leg (such as the groin muscles) could be related to my symptoms and provided a really holistic and comprehensive treatment. She was professional, personable and friendly. This was the best medical experience that I have had in a long time.

Fred K

Highly recommended Advent. Friendly staff, and office personnel make you feel welcome and comfortable. If I could give them more stars, I would.

Sharon S

Not only is the staff extremely welcoming, personable, and knowledgeable, they really went the extra mile to assure that I was completely pain-free and ready to fully participate in all of my pre-injury activities. I would highly recommend this clinic to anyone seeking top-notch physical therapy care!

Patrick S

I owe my health and well-being to the staff at Advent. Without their help, I would be in a tons of pain. This is an awesome place that cares about you as a person and your health. They give 100%.

What to expect from your visit to Advent in Downtown Grand Rapids?

At Advent Physical Therapy, we don’t believe in bland, cookie-cutter treatments. Every patient who comes through our doors is special and deserves unique treatment. We will work with you to develop a custom plan to help you achieve your recovery goals


    At your first appointment, your physical therapist will examine the affected area with a series of physical tests.


    We will also review your medical history and ask some health and lifestyle questions. All of this is considered for a proper diagnosis and thorough treatment plan.


    You’ll likely receive instructions for some stretches and exercises to perform at home between appointments. For optimal results, you should follow these instructions as seriously as you would for taking prescription medication.
