Reviews Add A Review Rated 5/5 based on 10 customer reviews "Active Solutions has a very caring approach to physical problems and has provided exercises that have decreased pain and stiffness. I highly recommend them!" Marcia H. from Boulder May 19, 2021 "Olaf provides consistently beneficial therapeutic therapy. His approach is patient and methodical, progressing with purpose toward healing and thriving. Bodily damage takes time and attention to mitigate and disappear; not so much manipulation (be that direct during sessions or self-administered via sensible, building sets of stretches for range of motion and exercises for strengthening) but the crafting of sustainable programs. My repeated experiences with Olaf have always been effective. Yours will be too." Bart W. from Boulder May 18, 2021 "Olaf was instrumental in helping me regain pain-free movement. I had major muscle spasms, movement of any kind hurt when I began therapy. Over several weeks he worked on me and gave me increasingly challenging exercises that got me back to normal. I'm very grateful, and highly recommend him." Suzanne W. from Boulder Mar 24, 2021 "I have been using Active Solutions physical therapy for a number of years now for different issues. I've always found them to be very professional and really know what they're doing and how to get you through the problem in a very friendly way. They are a smaller office also which makes it much more personal experience. I highly recommend her." Fred . from Boulder Feb 01, 2021 "I have so benefited by the good care at Active Solutions. Olaf has helped me be pain free after repeated back issues through the years. " Heather G. from Boulder Dec 17, 2020 "Very good care improved my neck and back no pain now with more movement" Reed M. from Boulder Sep 11, 2020 "Highly recommend! Very knowledgeable, attentive and thorough. I am recovering from a third shoulder dislocation and the exercises reduced the pain and strengthened my shoulder quickly. " Becca B. from Boulder Sep 08, 2020 "I was suffering from severe low back pain in 2011 and was diagnosed with degenerative joint disease in L4-L5. My PA recommended physical therapy with Antoinette Vastenburg at Active Solutions Physical Therapy. I had been through PT before and was expecting the typical course of treatment. I quickly discovered that Antoinette was different. She utilizes The Feldenkrais Method (feldenkrais.com), which focuses on mindful movement and range of motion restoration. I felt that the exercises Antoinette prescribed as well as the gentle manipulation of my joints she incorporates into her practice increased my range of motion and decreased my pain faster than any of my prior PT treatments. Antoinette was very knowledgeable and took the time necessary to address any questions or concerns I had. Additionally, she introduced me to walking as a means to prevent my back pain from returning. I now walk 4-4.5 miles per day, and the pain has not returned! So you can imagine where I turned when pain from my thoracic outlet syndrome kept me awake at night in March of 2018. My insurance allowed me to self refer to physical therapy, and Antoinette was my first choice. Once again, I felt I progressed much faster with Antoinette's approach than with traditional PT, and I was able to "graduate" from treatment in May 2018! Even if you are currently not needing PT, Antoinette teaches Awareness Through Movement classes which utilize The Feldenkrais Method--be sure to watch Active Solutions' Facebook page for details!" Janene F. from Active Solutions Physical Therapy Jul 25, 2018 "Excellent, professional physical therapy. Olaf gave me the exercises to make a speedy recovery from my hip replacement. Highly recommend this business." Bonnie M. from Active Solutions Physical Therapy Apr 17, 2018 "I have been using the services of Active Solutions Physical Therapy over many years to treat my pain and discomfort from arthritis, back pain and surgeries. Olaf and Antoinette, the physical therapists at Active Solutions, are very attentive, listen to me, treat me with respect and most important, know how to treat my discomfort at the time, and allow me after one or more appointments to find comfort and relief." Stanley K. from Active Solutions Physical Therapy Jan 15, 2018 Antoinette has been extremely helpful. I saw her for about 10 sessions (which were a combination of manual therapy and Feldenkrais) and experienced a significant decrease in my symptoms. In addition, she began to help me with my balance problems (using Feldenkrais). I had marked improvement in my balance/steadiness after just a brief intervention. Besides being a skilled physical therapist, I found Antoinette to be a lovely individual with a quiet and respectful way of working. Carol C. Olaf was able to achieve the seemingly impossible; a pain-free life for me. After six months of physical therapy and an additional six months of diligent adherence to a customized exercise routine, I have completely recovered from my neck injury. It's miraculous to return from intense 24/7 pain to a fully functional normal life. Thank you so much for making all the difference. I'm so grateful. Mary Ann M. For the past two or three years I have used Antoinette Vastenburg for therapy. The specific therapy being used is the Feldenkrais method. I have been very pleased, as have several of my patients, with the conscientious care and professional treatment that Ms. Vastenburg has provided. Several of these patients have been able to avoid surgery because of this treatment. Richard Sanders, M.D. Denver Vascular Surgical Associates, P.C. After years of traditional physical therapy, and endless cycles of therapy-pain-more-therapy-more pain, I discovered the quiet wisdom of Feldenkrais. At last a form of therapy that brings light to the root of the problem and empowers me to make body movement changes that free my body of chronic pain. Jamie F. I was referred to Antoinette Vastenburg for physical therapy, using the 'Feldenkrais Method', after my car accident. After undergoing treatment, using this method, I am living virtually, pain free. When I do have an occasional flair up, I have tools now to alleviate my pain. My whole body has relearned how to move in unison to avoid pain. Alonda P. This is the most sophisticated and effective method I have seen for the prevention and reversal of deterioration of function. Margaret Mead, Ph. D., Anthropologist on the Feldenkrais Method I chose the option of physical therapy instead of immediately going into surgery. After four months of therapy with Active Solutions, I do not have the constant pain in my back and neck, or the numbness in my arm. Olaf and his wife Antoinette do different types of therapy, and I went to both of them. They taught me exercises, improved my posture, and also taught me what to do if I start feeling pain or numbness. I have been on my own to do the exercises for over a month now, and I am doing very well. I would highly recommend Active Solutions Physical Therapy to anyone who could be helped by physical therapy.
