“I have been treating head injury and stroke patients for the past 8 years, and I commonly find in my patients difficulties with the vestibular system and sensory integration. Julie Knoll, PT is always my first choice when my patients required skilled evaluation and therapy for balance and sensory integration. The therapists at NeuroBalance PT are simply the best, and have helped hundreds of my patients in their return to a more normal life.”

“I have known and worked with Julie for over twenty years. For about fifteen of those years we worked together along with Dr. Esses (a neuro-otologist) in a collaborative team effort at the Dizzy and Balance Clinic. We have shared many complicated and involved patients.
Julie is an exceptionally gifted, smart and talented therapist and diagnostician. Her insight into patient’s problems and her ability to treat them is remarkable. I have only the best things to say about Julie and I personally refer my patients to her.”

“My name is Carol and I have MS. I began seeing Julie Knoll, based on the recommendation of a friend and because she is a Neurologic Clinical Specialist, and I wanted the best. Over the past two years, I noticed that my gait, knee strength, balance and overall walking ability had declined.
Julie gave me a thorough evaluation and provided me with a home program of exercises. Since then, I have made great progress! Because of Julie’s knowledge and expertise regarding MS, as well as her positive attitude and encouragement, I have been able to manage and maintain the positive gains that I have made. Thank you, Julie!”

“I am 66 years old. I had a car accident when I was 13 that left me with a concussion and a lifetime of contending with dizziness and balance issues: particularly challenging as I lived an active athletic life. I was introduced to Julie Knoll as a result of a bicycle accident that left me with several fractures and exacerbated balance/dizziness problems. Specifically my balance was at its worst and my dizziness was more frequent and intense.
After one month of physical therapy my balance and dizziness problems are 95% gone. I am referring to the problems I dealt with for 53 years. I recommend Julie without reservation and only wish I met her years ago.”

“As a Parkinson’s patient, I have had Julie Knoll as my physical therapist for almost two years…..and she has done more for me than all of my doctors combined!! I do the exercises she has taught me at least three times a week…. She has relieved my knee, hip, & back pain, by improving my posture thru retraining with a specifically planned exercise regime. All of her efforts and guidance caused my neurologist to say, “your actually looking better”!……wow!! Truth is, I feel just great & I’ve had this disease for eight years!! Julie, thank you, you are wonderful!!!!!”

“I am so grateful for having you in my life. When everyone I knew told me to sit down in my wheelchair, and be sure I had my brakes on, along you come and tell me to get up and walk down the hall! Yes, I have been Touched by an Angel and for that I am grateful.
Success with Stroke Recovery
Imagine feeling the following sensations periodically on a daily basis: dizziness, floating, spinning, whirling, light headedness, nausea. Add to that confusion and a sense of being out of sync with life, your environment, and those around you.This all makes you feel isolated and not understood. This is how I felt through much of January of 2012 after a head injury from falling down the stairs of my home. I needed a very special person in my life to teach me patience and pacing. I also needed one who had the education and skills to properly diagnose my problems and give me the therapy I needed to heal.
That person was Julie Knoll. While I live in Pueblo, driving 85 miles to see someone who could help me seemed like a blessing.
When I first met Julie, I was immediately impressed by her demeanor. In fact, since I had been working on acquiring patience in dealing with my vertigo and headaches, I felt especially reassured by the quote on a plaque behind her desk. “Adopt the pace of nature, her secret is patience.” I knew my healing would not be instantaneous, but I knew I had found someone who would help on the journey. Julie exudes competence, self-confidence, wisdom, peace, patience, and hope. She is able to build all of these same virtues in her patients. As Julie began to review the intake form I had filled out prior to seeing her the first time, I was immediately aware of her great knowledge about the disorder for which I was seeking treatment. Her academic knowledge was enhanced by her obvious possession of much successful experience in her chosen field. While all of these attributes are greatly sought for in looking for any healer, I was especially struck by Julie’s healing nature which was expressed by her care, concern, and willingness to truly listen and respond with ideas to aid in healing. She didn’t just come up with a treatment plan, she gave me other resources to help me on my path to health. She suggested books to read, tips on handling times when I was experiencing symptoms, tips on traveling with this disorder, food choice that might make a difference, and advice on how to handle reactions to activities and medications. She is both a gifted healer and teacher. She taught me about the importance of exercise and diet to aid in recovery.
Every time I saw Julie, she gave me exercises to do to help me overcome my disorder and injury. The philosophy behind the exercise program she developed is one of habituation. In other words, I was to do those very things that made me dizzy in order to retrain my brain to accept those things that caused me to be out of balance with my body and my world.
As I think back over the past year, and especially over the last six months, I truly do not know what I would have done without the support, encouragement, knowledge, and help I received from this outstanding professional. It is no small thing to give one a name for something that is disrupting one’s ability to cope with what is going on within one’s body and brain. I learned that what I was experiencing had a name: vestibular disorder. I learned there was much to learn about the disorder itself, and I learned that the more you inform yourself about your disorder, the better equipped you will be to manage your symptoms and communicate effectively about your needs with family, friends, and health.
I will be forever grateful for her. She gave me the tools I needed to begin to recover my life. Thank you, Julie.”
Success with Post Concussive Syndrome
My daughter had been diagnosed with a moderate concussion. Her symptoms were nausea, inability to focus, light sensitivity, intense and persistent headache on one side of head, and her eyes were not tracking properly. My daughter was feeling defeated. It had been over one month and her symptoms were not getting better and she was struggling in school.
In our first appointment with Julie, she did an extensive interview and exam to determine exactly what was going on with my daughter. During this first session, Julie was able to alleviate my daughter’s nauseated feeling. This was huge because just walking around made her nauseated. Julie knew my daughter needed help and she rearranged her schedule to fit her in twice a week.
During the treatments, she also determined that her neck was slightly misaligned with the rest of her body. Through massage, physical therapy exercises and realigning her neck, Julie helped remedy this situation. This was a blessing to my daughter as she was having chronic neck and back pain for the past 2 years. We had been to 3 other professionals in the last 2 years that were not able to help her. Julie did help!
We are so thankful and blessed to have Julie as our physical therapist…..she truly is the best!
