  • Over the past year, physical therapist Ethan at this practice has created a custom pain management program after a back injury left me with chronic pain and distressing mobility issues. At each session Ethan listens carefully, explains his strategy in terms I can understand, demonstrates the move, and then gives me feedback as I learn each move. We also videotape each exercise so I can repeat it accurately at home. Through Ethan’s program, I’ve gained effective pain management techniques and most importantly, the confidence to return to normal activities like flying solo to California last month to visit my daughter in San Francisco. I’ve also been able to return to my 3-hour volunteer docent shifts twice weekly at Smithsonian National Zoo. I greatly appreciate Ethan’s expertise and professionalism, and I strongly recommend his services!

  • Ethan has been amazing! I suffered with neck pain and intermittent back spasms leaving me unable to walk for 2 days due to pain. All my issues were addressed and I am able to do heavy weightlifting without any issues! It was not easy to figure out exactly what the problem was, there was no way I would be able to figure things out on my own by watching youtube and routine physical therapy workouts would not have addressed my specific issue (I tried). I needed a thorough evaluation to target my specific issue and Ethan was able to do this. Cannot recommend this enough.

  • Sebastien who I worked with predominantly and sometimes Kelly (for running specifics) were amazing. They listened, and provided respectful insights and feedback on ways to help strengthen and improve my movement. If we needed to change things up they didn't hesitate to optimize my rehab plan. Amazing support.

  • i was very happy with the PT that i received at CHP in Bethesda. Jordan was terrific both as a therapist and as a person who made my sessions as much fun as possible. I also very much appreciated the ability to do sessions virtually so that i could travel and still get PT.

  • I have received great care with Dr. Jordan at Cohen Health and Performance. She's incredibly encouraging and positive. She is also very knowledgeable. And when we got stuck a bit, she did extra research to determine the best course of treatment for me. I'm making real progress and feel very hopeful for a full recovery.

  • The team at Cohen Health is very knowledgable and attentive. I have worked with them for over 2 years and it has helped me rehabilitate various injuries and get me through post op recovery. It's great to be able to focus on best practices and therapy for any injury or pain point, and not be restricted by whatever insurance companies require for therapy.

  • Not only is this a beautifully curated and equipped facility, it is full of extremely capable, caring, and intellectually curious PT's who set their own standards. Too often patients are run through a completely predetermined routine based on where their pain point is. At CHP, the team not only has the knowledge of human anatomy and physiology, but they understand the application of that knowledge and actually train their patients to be able to rewire their neuromuscular firing patterns to address the root case of pain. This facility is led by a fantastic owner who aims to educate his team and create a network of professionals that can continue to learn from each other. Cannot recommend this place enough!!

  • I ruptured my quadricep tendon. Having a good surgeon was an important part of the recovery, but what really helped me recover was the therapy provided by CHP. I have learned exercises that I will incorporate into my routines for the rest of my life. Most importantly, however, is CHP got me through my recovery and back to skiing -- one of my favorite activities. On day 6 of 7 and every thing is great. Thank you Zach, Sebastian, and the whole CHP team!

  • A friend referred me to Cohen for training and physical therapy services before I had knee surgery to repair torn meniscus in a knee. After a 3 month regiment of training and therapy with Dr. Jordan Arbuckle there, my surgically repaired knee feels great and is 100% back, and my entire lower body has new strength and agility I never thought possible. Cohen H&P is top notch and I recommend them and Jordan to anyone.
