"I am so fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Gretchen. I was having leg weakness, leg fatigue, spasticity, trouble with walking long distances (unassisted) and so many more. I can not express, in words, how talented this woman is. The MSing link is a MUST HAVE! The exercises are easy and most of them you can do anywhere! The site is updated SUPER frequently so there’s always new content to explore. Usually monthly there is a guest speaker - such great learning! You seriously have access to a physical therapist who specializes in MS! She listens to every, single symptom. She never looks at you like your crazy (trust me, one day I told her that I was experiencing a vibrating feeling inside my legs and feet - she was like “no problem” and then gave me different tactics to make it go away). She is AMAZING!! and Finn is SO adorable!! Thank you Dr. Gretchen for helping me get strong and believing in me!" - K.L.
"Doctor Gretchen is truly an entrepreneur in the field of MS Physical Therapy. I first met her three months ago and it was life changing. I have been active all my life but as someone with 34 years "time in grade" with MS, someone who now uses a rollator, and someone who has transitioned to Secondary Progressive MS, I desperately needed to kick my exercise routine up a notch. And then I was referred to Gretchen. She get's it. She understood everything I questioned. She not only gave me a routine that was acceptable and achievable, but she gave me a new hope of what was possible. Doctor Gretchen was truly a find for me. Her website is now available 24 hours and has more tools than I ever could have imagined: exercises, expert videos, guest speakers, and research updates... all without having to leave your home. I can't say enough about this program and suggest you give it a chance. You won't regret it." - S.C.
"Dr. Gretchen covers everything! Her exercises have helped me in more ways than I can count - from getting up after a fall, to strengthening areas that needed HELP ! They are all right on your PC - no long commutes - no traffic - no picking up germs from a hospital or "ride" - that has happened to me! You will NOT be sorry if you join! And, not to forget , the wonderful "speakers" that cover various issues !! She keeps you informed of all the latest MS Medicines ,too !! I used to see her at a clinic, so glad I can see her everyday !! Thank you, Dr., for this wonderful site!!" - M.S.
"Dr. Gretchen Hawley is truly one of the most knowledgeable people I have ever met in the multiple sclerosis field. With her help, I have made tremendous progress in dealing with my daily challenges. She has honestly given me the tools needed to improve my walking and balance, two of my biggest struggles. Her videos give everyone dealing with MS the opportunity to experience her expertise and enthusiasm as if she was personally working with them one on one. I would recommend her video series to anyone dealing with MS." -- K.C.
"I have made more progress (walking, balance, learning to stand from a wheelchair) in 3 months than in the last 3 years. The attention you get is specifically designed for you and your abilities. Gretchen was specifically recommended by my MS physician. I can feel the improvement!!!" -- R.G.
"Having Multiple Sclerosis for 40 years now has been somewhat of a challenge. My balance along with weakness in my legs and hands started to take a toll on me. I wasn't happy with the way I was feeling so I asked my MS Neurologist for advise. He suggested some Physical Therapy with Gretchen. I was very impressed with her knowledge of MS and her ability to physically help me. Her skillful teaching methods along with my hard work has helped me regain my balance and I am now walking much better again. " -- E.T.
"Gretchen Hawley is amazing. I've had physical therapy before, but it was nothing like what I've experienced with Gretchen. The series of exercises she suggested were targeted specifically at walking, flat surfaces and stairs. Gretchen coached me through exercises that worked the major muscles AND the micro muscles (many which I hadn't known existed) AND in context of the movement I aspired to improve. Many of the exercises were in the context of walking or climbing stairs; for those that weren't, she explained how we were targeting how muscles worked together. She even introduced cognitive exercises to accompany the physical work. Physical Therapy with Gretchen soars above the physical therapy I had a few years ago for the same issues." - B.G.
"Gretchen is professional, knowledgeable, and very caring. If I'm having difficulty with an exercise, she finds a way to modify it so I can be successful. I appreciate her knowledge and experience specifically with Multiple Sclerosis patients. She understands how spasticity and fatigue can impact how I move, and knows how to design a program that works for me." -- D.G.
