“I can not speak highly enough of the care my 13 year old son received from Dr Shantz, Leanne and Mike. The time this team takes to fully assess, diagnose and explain his pitching injury has been second to none. The Acumen Team has been outstanding and has gone above and beyond to keep in close contact with us, adjust rehabilitation where needed and keep tabs on my sons progression. Not only has they kept in touch with us but also with my son’s personal trainer and baseball coach to ensure everyone is on the same page and working towards the goal of back to pitching in the summer. I am so grateful to have my son’s health in an unbelievable team’s care. Highly recommend the Acumen team!”
