"The physical therapists are amazing - knowledgeable, PROFESSIONAL, personable, and very good at identifying special problem areas of the body. I love their "hands on" approach in contrast to someone just telling me what stretches or exercises to do. Two therapists worked on 2 of my problems, and it has definitely helped with my issues. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND MANUAL EDGE PHYSIOTHERAPY!"

"I highly recommend Manual Edge Physiotherapy and I give them 5 stars for their compassionate approach, knowledge, and experience, working with me to solve my TMJ issues, as well as my hip and low back pain. Tim Bonack worked on my TMJ derangement and was able to diagnose and resolve my complex set of circumstances that contributed to my problem. I felt relief after my first appointment with Tim, and continued to improve after each visit. Valerie Jones tackled my low back and hip issues and diligently set about unwinding multiple problems that have contributed to my pain and immobility. Both Tim and Val have given me exercises and stretches, etc. tailored for my problems to practice at home to gain strength and greater mobility. I am so grateful to have found Manual Edge to help me with my issues. Their entire staff is very compassionate and they work hard at learning about their clients from the moment you walk into their facility. They make it clear that they will work with you until you are able to function well on your own and will be there when you need them in the future. They are my first choice should I have future issues."

"I wish I found this place 2 years ago! The work they do works! From my first appointment I knew I had made the right decision to see Dr. Tim. Immediately, I felt improvements in my body. I have/had a hiatal hernia that's been causing heartburn for 2 years. After diet changes, different medicines and such it only got 70% better. After 3 appointments with Tim I feel about 95% better. Soon to be 100%.
It takes time to make an appointment as they're booked out well in advance but during your appointment you get one on one attention and you never feel rushed. It is a bit pricey (my insurance doesn't cover) but it's completely worth their expertise and the money saved on future medicines and doctors that I won't need. The office staff is very friendly and helpful!
Can't recommend Dr. Tim and Manuel Edge Physiotherapy enough. I hope this type of medicine becomes the practice norm!

"I’ve been coming to therapy the last few months and I’ve improved a lot. I was suffering with hip/low back pain, along with a frequent and sudden pinch that would grab down the backs of my thighs. I’m very impressed with the level of skill, sensitivity and care I have been receiving. I was well on my way to becoming disabled. But along with the very effective hands on, and doing the ‘homework exercises’ my therapist instructs me in, I have good reason to believe I will get completely back to activities I thought were lost forever, like long hilly walks, and I will enjoy the physical quality of my life again this year! Thanks to Manual Edge and my wonderful therapist, Teresa Owen😅👏🏼"

"Val has been exceptional with my pre & post knee replacement therapy. Prior to surgery, she worked my knee to make it straighter and gave me exercises to strengthen it. As the date for my surgery approached she gave me exercises to address post-op issues. When I went for my checkup my doctor said I looked way too good for 3 weeks post op! He expected I would have pain on both sides of my knee and I informed him, "Nope my PT gave me exercises & directions for foam rolling those areas." He was extremely pleased as I have been with my care! Thank you!!!!"

Received soothing physical therapy that immediately addressed my needs. Immediately received homework so I could work on my issues at home to quicken my recovery. Tim has amazing healing hands, extreme expertise in the TMJ, Cervical Spine, Neck and Head areas of the body. He also has outstanding customer service. Highly recommend Manuel Edge to anyone!"

"Manual Edge is an extraordinary practice based on a very different paradigm than other physical therapy practices I have experienced. I have been seeing both Tim Bonack and Chris Kaster for the past couple of months and their work has been nothing short of miraculous. I have had an eight year history of intermittent episodes of acute low back pain that became much worse this past year decreasing my mobility and my quality of life.
When this episode started a year ago, I was referred to another physical therapy office that had successfully helped me during past acute episodes. However, the exercises and dry needling did not work this time, so I decided physical therapy could no longer help me. I thought I was going to have to have the spinal fusion that had been recommended by several different neurosurgeons until a friend recommended this practice.
After two months, I am so much better evidenced by decreased pain and increased mobility. I am back to walking about four miles per day with little discomfort. Their high level of expertise in manual hands on therapy and their caring attitude has given me my life back again. I worked as a registered nurse for over forty years and I believe this is an outstanding office with high quality providers. I recommend them to anyone especially if other types of physical therapy have failed to give you improvement. A bonus is that their new office is lovely, light and bright."

"Dr. Chris is a miracle worker!!! His craniosacral and visceral (digestive organs) mobilization and manipulation saved me. I weakly shuffled into the office after spending days in a dark room (in bed), but walked out needing a reminder to put on sunglasses outdoors. I saw colors differently after his work. My optic and vagus nerves had been severely triggered by some recent events, on top of a prior head trauma, but he's fixed it all. Did I say miracle-worker?! Dr. Chris is skillful, knowledgeable, an excellent listener, caring, and fun. Plus, he's helped reverse countless childhood ankle sprains to restore movement I thought was just gone. Also. very important, the front desk staff is friendly, prompt, and helpful!"

"Tim Bonack and his staff are equally professional and wonderful. The knowledge and compassion they have shown me have been over and above my expectations. They truly care about what they do and who they treat. My range of motion in my left shoulder was greatly limited. Val Jones worked with me on my frozen shoulder until it moved properly again. In addition, I experienced nearly unbearable pressure in my head and restricted neck movement, along with sensory-overload sensitvity. Tim Bonack addressed symptoms related to post-concussion syndrome (also known as mild traumatic brain injury) through the manual technique of cranial sacral therapy. I am much improved today when compared to who I was when I first walked in the doors of Manual Edge Physiotherapy! Also, because Tim Bonack and staff work with other Specialists I was referred to a Behavior Optometrist where I continue to receive vision therapy as part of my healing process. It has been and continues to be an educational journey for me. You can see why I recommend Manuel Edge Physiotherapy highly and without reservation.
The new location of Manual Edge Physiotherapy might be a bit of a challenge to locate (it was for me), but so worth the effort. A beautiful new office, therapy rooms, and a larger demonstration/therapy room await you!"

After experiencing Val's treatments I wouldn't consider going to anyone else. I appreciate her and the office staff for their courteousness, professionalism, and inviting warmth. At one appointment, Val had me doing an exercise and I told her it hurt. She asked where, nodded, put a little pressure in one spot, and the pain was gone!! She's amazing!! If I ever need to have physical therapy again, I'll come back to Manual Edge and Val. I would recommend your office to anyone, and will pass the information on to my doctor as well!

"Six years ago I was at the end of my rope with trying to get a diagnosis and treatment for a lower GI issue, which was not only physically debilitating, but was causing me much emotional anguish. After seeing several medical professionals, all who were empathetic, I got online and researched everything I could about my symptoms which equipped me to zero in on the services provided by Dr. Tim. He was literally an answer to prayer. With a hands on examination of my abdomen he was able to diagnose the problem and I began intensive therapy which lasted over a year. I cannot say enough about what a difference it makes to be seen at an owner operated practice as opposed to a "group". The personal attention, care and time allotted is an essential part of the healing process. A couple of months ago I needed therapy once again for a shoulder injury. I started treatment at a PT facility closer to home, but after a couple of sessions it was clear I was not getting better and once again called on the services of Manual Edge Physio Therapy. This time I am seeing Theresa, a newbee, and am happy to report she is an excellent therapist and once again I am on the road to recovery. From the front desk to the therapy table this practice exercises the BEST in genuine personal care and treatment. "

"Caring and gentle Manual Therapy that gets lasting results!
Tim Bonack, the owner, is a unique and truly gifted Physical Therapist. He has trained and practiced for over 30 years. He trained in America and also in Canada, where he attended Canadian Osteopathy School. I have seen him as a patient and have also referred 100s of patients to him in the last 7 years. The majority of patients I have sent to him have been treated by other professionals without relief of their symptoms. He has helped patients who have suffered with chronic pain for years. He has the most sensitive and subtle diagnostic and treatment skills of anyone I have every worked with in Physical Therapy.
In addition to advanced manual therapy techniques; he incorporates Craniosacral Therapy. This has proved especially helpful for many patients with migraines and other forms of chronic headaches, chronic neck pain, TMJ, spinal pain, nerve pain, and traumatic brain injury. I have also used him to increase the effectiveness of patients being treated with Neurofeedback.
As a patient, I drive over an hour for an appointment. I've had surgery on the base of my skull, a cervical fusion, and during my treatment with Tim, was involved in a head on motor vehicle collision at 60 MPH. He has been able to relive my pain and increase my mobility. I am often amazed that he will, for example, work on my ribcage when I come in complaining of neck pain, only to find that my neck pain is relieved. His advanced understanding of the delicate interconnected relationships of the musculoskeletal system is what enables him to find and correct the source of dysfunction.
The office staff at Manual Edge Physiotherapy are caring and professional. The office has a quiet and relaxed feel. In addition to Tim there are 2 other manual therapist working there. Both of them have also received advanced training in manual therapy. I have referred patients to both of them and have also had excellent feedback and results from patients.

"I came to Manual Edge (Tim Bonack) on the chance referral of a friend. I was desperate -- the pain in my back was debilitating. No medical doctor had been able to help me....I had been to chiropractors, 43 physical therapy visits in less than a year, many visits to a pain management specialist, hypnotist, bio feedback specialist, was wearing a TENS unit around every waking hour, pain killers were not touching my pain...they had put me on opiate patches which were so strong I couldn't function. I had numerous sessions of dry needling, traction, trigger point injections, ultrasound sessions, deep tissue massage, etc. I was in constant pain. I thought I was going to have to file disability. After a number of visits with Tim I am pain-free. I am so thankful for him and the folks at Manual Edge. I have since referred several people with different pain issues to Manual Edge and am so happy that they, too, are now pain free. Thank you guys!"

"My experience at Manual Edge, in all respects, has been Outstanding!. Initially, six years ago, I was referred to Tim Bonack by my neurologist for severe headaches. Short of surgery the neurologist was unable to help me, but within a coupe of months of treatment at Manual Edge my headaches were gone and have not returned. I have continued regular maintenance visits for neck and back issues and the treatments are always helpful and effective. Tim is very professional and knowledgeable (as I am sure are the other therapists ). He truly cares about, not just the physical issues, but the whole person. I would highly recommend the practice of Manual Edge Physiotherapy to anyone needing physical therapy treatment! "

Today my pain is practically gone and manageable. Dr. Kaster gave me the right tools to get better, i.e. exercises, stretches, proper movements, etc. The previous four PTs I'd seen can't touch Dr. Kaster, he knows his stuff.
The beautiful ladies at the front desk were very nice, courteous and professional for all of my visits.
If you have an issue that requires a physical therapist, I highly recommend Dr. Chris Kaster at Manual Edge."

"Manual Edge Physiotherapy epitomizes the high caliber clinic I seek when needing treatment for short- or long-standing complicated symptomatic presentations whether for myself, members of my extended family, or my friends. As a manual therapist myself, I seek out practitioners who are intent on discovering the underlying factor(s) that present as symptoms and treat from the ‘root level’ for healing to occur over the long term. Practitioners who give just the right input to remind the body how to heal at the most basic level is exactly what you will find at Manual Edge. When I find a practitioner who thinks outside the box of conventional medicine, considers the interrelationships among systems, and employs unique manual techniques to make a true shift in the body for physical improvement, I know I have found the correct clinic. This very type of clinic is what the Colorado Springs area is so incredibly fortunate to have in their own backyard. Indeed, I sent my family members there AND I had the fortunate experience to meet and observe the practitioners as well as be treated. If you seek a clinic that deeply understands both verbal and non-verbal communication of your unique situation, validates your concerns, and one where clinicians will treat you from a highly skilled, hands-on approach then I would say you have found your ‘home.’ I am confident in recommending this clinic as I know it is very rare to find a clinic of this exceptional quality.

"I can't say enough good things about Manual Edge Physiotherapy! I've been seeing chiropractors for 15 years now and I'm in far less pain and have made more progress in the last year than I've made in all that time. I wholeheartedly recommend Manual Edge to anyone in need of high quality physical therapy. "

“I came to Manual Edge (Tim Bonack) on the chance referral of a friend. I was desperate, the pain in my back with debilitating. No medical doctor had been able to help me. I had been to chiropractors, 43 physical therapy visits in less than a year, many visits to a pain management specialist, hypnotist, bio feedback specialist, was wearing a tens unit around every walking hour, and pain killers were not touching my pain. They had put me on opiate patches which were so strong I couldn’t function. I had numerous sessions of dry needling, traction, trigger point injections, ultrasound sessions, deep tissue massage, etc. I was in constant pain. I thought I was going to have to file for disability. After a number of visits with Tim, I am pain free. I am so thankful for him and the folks at Manual Edge. I have since referred several people with different pain issues to Manual Edge, and am so happy that they too are now pain free. Thank you guys!”
“I had a unique problem that I feel only Tim was able to help me with. His unique ability to diagnose my situations have been a blessing in my life.”

“I saw multiple doctors over the years and was told that my problems were caused from everything from; cracked ribs to gallbladder dysfunction. It took Tim 20 mins to figure out the real problem stemmed from having several ribs out of place. The treatment plan almost instantly relived me of the issues I have been dealing with for years.”
– John L. (Tim)
“I experienced improvement at the end of every session. Kristina takes plenty of time to make certain I do the exercises correctly, as well as answer all my questions for each session.”
– J.A. G. (Kristina)
“I arrived in Colorado Springs suffering from birth injuries, and had been in pain and unable to perform daily functions for over 20 months. Now, my scarring is better, my pain is less, and incontinence has greatly improved. Of the three PT’s I’ve seen for these issues, she has been BY FAR the most knowledgeable and willing to help.”
– Melissa F. (Kristina)
“I have struggled with sciatic pain for years, I tried exercises and other remedies with no success. Since working with Ryanne my back has improved 100%.”
– Joyce F. (Ryanne)
“I had been so focused on my lower back and just how to manage the pain that came back about four years after my surgery that I never thought to look at it from a different angle. Everyone has noticed a difference in how I’m moving every time, Ryanne works her magic!.”
– Rosemary S. (Ryanne)
“I went to several different doctors and none of them knew what was wrong. After the second appointment with Chris, I was already doing better. I now have no pain and I am living a new life.”
– Morgan R. (Chris)
“I was surprised to be treated hands-on rather than with equipment. Chris’s understanding of body mechanics was enabling him to quickly drill-down and work on the problem areas. I may seem curious to say so, by I have enjoyed this experience. I much appreciate Chris’s outstanding expertise and educational focus.”
“Valerie is not bound by ‘traditional’ physical therapy practices, but constantly looks for ‘out of the box’ techniques. She is acutely aware of my comfort level and limitations.”
– Linda W. (Val)
“Val has been the best thing that has come along to me. Working to strengthen the knee, but knowing my foot had been the start of the problem, she has really done a superb job.”
– Roberta D. (Val)
“Valerie was extremely pleasant and professional to work with. She was able to help me resolve the original issues I came in with quickly. Through exercise and stretching, we were able to alleviate additional discomfort from tight muscles. I am most pleased with my treatment and experience here at Manual Edge and would be happy to recommend the practice to others.”
– Susan A. (Val)
“I was ready to give in to the pain and suffering going on in the right side of my body. During my first appointment, Val assured me – positively – that she could “tune me up” and – like a puzzle – “put me back together!” I felt relief in my back immediately! I am 75 years old and was beginning to feel it. Do I now – NO! Like I said, A MIRACLE! Thank you, Valerie Jones. “
