Let me teach you how to self treat, feel better, and move better!
"Unlike traditional PT, I work with you one on one. I use movement screening and various hands on therapies to get you moving and feeling better. In most cases, you WILL leave with a customized self treatment program so you won't need me or other clinicians on a regular basis. Better in 4 or see me no more." - Dr. Erson Religioso III, DPT, MS, MTC, CertMDT, CertMST, CFC, CNPT, FAAOMPT

Frequently Asked Questions
Why don't you take insurance?
You get what you pay for. Most of the clinics in the area are extremely high volume. The "experience" of PT after the first visit is, "here's your exercise card" and you're lucky to get more than 5-10 min tops with a PT, assistant or a student. With EDGE Rehab and Sport, you only work with me. Whether that's a full hour, or less. Plus you are guaranteed to be seen as little as possible.
Do you want to go to PT for 2-3 hours a week (mostly to work on on your own), for a copay of $45 or more each session? Do you have the time to go 2-3 times/week for months until you break up with your PT? Or do you want to be seen 2-4 times total over the course of a 4-6 weeks? I'll leave it up to you what sounds like the better option.
Can I submit to my insurance for reimbursement?
In most cases yes, you can get reimbursed for out of network services if you have this as part of your benefits. You will need to contact your insurance company rep to find out. If you have a HSA Card (Health Savings Account), I accept those as well. The amount you get reimbursed makes my fees often just like a copay, except the service you get is MUCH better than your typical clinic that takes insurance.
What can I expect from a visit at EDGE Rehab and Sport Science?
You can expect me to take the time listen to your complaints, and more importantly, your goals. If you love to work out, run, swim, or play with your grandkids - I won't tell you NOT to do those things. Nothing bugs me more than hearing stories of runners being told running is bad for them, TMJ patients NEVER to eat a salad again, or you shouldn't squat or deadlift. While there is a limited time avoidance of these things are helpful to help the system get desensitized, very rarely do you have to stop an activity forever.
Recovery is a balance between avoiding the things that trigger your complaints, and continuously doing the things that improve them. The majority of people, regardless of how long they have pain or injuries can get a custom, and easy to follow Recovery Plan that will help them do the things they enjoy with the people they love!
Do you really only see people 2-4 times?
What if I can't make your limited hours or come to your location?
I do online consults, or I can come to your office or home for an additional fee.
Currently, I am doing virtual visits, or in live in person visits, I will come to your work or home! For both live and virtual, you get the same world class attention, care, and 1:1 time. My visit average is still 2-4 visits whether live or virtual!

What do others say about working with Dr. E?
"Go see Dr. E. !" - Adam Kelly
"Dr. E is the guy the you are looking for if you need a clinician on the cutting edge of physical medicine, rehabilitation, and manual therapy. Whether you consider his patient education abilities, treatment skills, or bedside manner...you will find none lacking. Don't rely on terrible advice that you will find from old textbooks or most general practitioners... "
"Erson truly is a master of his domain!" - Leslie Eaton
"I have had recurring shoulder problems, in different areas of both, and Erson really is phenomenal at getting to the root of the problem quickly through a very thorough but relatively quick assessment. The numerous times he has treated me I felt and saw immediate results in my function. He really understands biomechanics and dysfunction, which is evident by his treatment and prescribed home exercise regimens, which consistently get me back to my previous level of function. I highly recommend him for all orthopedic musculoskeletal issues."
"Erson is hands down the best PT around!" - Dave Kish
"I have gone to a couple others in the past but after being referred to him I have never gone elsewhere over the last 14 years. I have had to see him various times and was successfully treated for different issues (neck, shoulder, knee injuries etc). Erson is well trained and an obvious expert in his field. Over the years I have seen him training many aspiring PT's, and you can tell that he is well respected in the field. Erson is the only PT that I have recommended to my friends and family, and many have gone to him in the past and been pleased with the results. In addition to knowing his craft inside and out he is easy to talk to, friendly and pleasant to work with. He has never tried to sell me more then I needed, and he is genuinely concerned with making his clients feel better. It has been a pleasure having him as my PT, he's been there for me whenever I needed help and I am more then happy to recommend him to anyone."
