Over the last few years, the name “Chris Sequenzia” has come up with some of my running friends. They had mentioned that if ever there was someone that could rehabilitate you from an injury or do strengthening, this was the guy. Not until this year did I have to exercise this option. You see, as my 50th birthday quickly approached, I made the decision in March ’09 to run my first full marathon; I have been a runner for about 35 yrs and have fallen in love with sprint tri’s and half marathons but never had the vision (and craziness) to do a full. Without an injury for about 2 yrs…I knew it was time. Signed up for the ’09 Chicago Marathon (10/11/09) and WA-LA..out of the blue after a great mileage base…I got a mean and nasty IT Band injury…after being a stubborn nurse and attempting self-healing for 6 weeks…I entered the world of Renewal Rehab and Elite Sports Massage on August 12th…(June/July I could barely run 2-3 miles with this injury and prior I was breezing through 15 milers). When I met Chris Sequenzia, Greg Todd and Julie Tellefsen and not to mention Cheryl (secretary extraordinaire dealing with all types of insurance mess)….they were so excited to get me back up and running. Our team goal was for me to run the Chicago Marathon. With just 8 weeks til race day, we were crossing our fingers. These folks, I tell you, were just excited as me….I cannot even begin to tell you that the results were completely amazing. Doing PT initially 3d/wk and then adding a massage or 2 towards the end was the key (I warn you—don’t expect aromatherapy and soft music–Chris utilizes elbows, forearms and whatever technique to “fix” you) I sing their praises at this facility; not only do they have a great team approach they entertained me and made it “fun”. I was able to complete my marathon in 4:36 and completely enjoyed myself…..any post-race ailments I may experience will be squashed by Chris and company!!

The Renewal Rehab staff is exemplary! There are many words to describe each and every person there - Knowledgeable, Well Credentialed, Patient, Compassionate, Work as a Team, Upbeat, Instructive, Efficient, Respectful of your time, Good listening skills, Generous, etc. I can go on and on. I felt genuinely cared about and cared for. I would gladly refer friends and family to Renewal Rehab without hesitation.

I had surgery for a torn meniscus and went to Renewal Rehab instead of a place closer to my home. I am glad I did. Everyone there was very friendly. They gave me exercises to do at home to help with the healing process and continue to answer my questions and concerns. South Tampa Renewal Rehab you all ROCK!
Kimberley Thompson
I can't say enough good things about Mike and Renewal Rehab. He's helped me and both my sons through various issues. He's extremely knowledgeable, an excellent listener, and I have learned a lot just being around him. All of my experiences have been outstanding, and I'd highly recommend RR to anyone.

I fractured my femur almost a year ago. I came to Renewal Rehab very frightened and in pain. Because of the efforts of Mike, Claudia, Nick, and Dan, I am finished with the walker and back playing league tennis. I will continue taking therapy twice a week until they kick me out, because I see improvement every session and because I would miss the friendly and encouraging atmosphere. I could never have found a better place nor more wonderful people to help me with my recovery!

Started rehabilitation on 03/06/2007 at the Wesley Chapel facility. Had what might be best described as an intermittent pinched nerve in the left hip area that would cause me such pain as to collapse. Went everywhere with a cane for fear of falling. 3 months later, I have not fallen in over a month. I don’t even think about taking a cane with me when I go walking. From day one Julie, Wendi, Lebbet, Caroline, Craig, Nick and the rest of the staff made me feel welcome with warm smiles, positive attitudes and continual encouragement. The rehabilitation staff constantly challenges you in such a way that you want to do better and the results are suddenly self-evident. The office staff resolves issues with insurance requirements, referring and reviewing medical staff and scheduling issues with absolute ease. Cannot thank everyone enough for giving me back the simple act of walking without the fear of falling. I highly recommend RENEWAL REHABILITATION for any physical therapy needs to everyone.

I must say that Renewal Rehab has done such a wonderful job on me and all my family. I have gone to them several times for various issues that I have had due to automobile accidents and other injuries that have occurred to me. They always take great care to make sure you are well taken care of. The staff has also helped out my son as well as my husband when they have needed help in recovering from injuries. I must say that everyone here enjoys their work and makes you feel always welcome and treat you like family. If I could give them more than five stars I would.

I am a fork truck driver so when I pulled my back it really hindered my ability to drive. The people at renewal were fantastic. This clinic was absolutely amazing. It didn't feel as if I was coming to pt. it felt like a family here. The therapists and techs were amazing. Dan horn and I really connected and he created a superb workout program for me. I would highly recommend everyone coming here. The staff is super friendly and truly care about getting you healthy and back to a functional you.

RENEWAL REHABILITATION is the place to come if you need Physical Therapy of any type. Also, a good place to come for regular exercises and Body Strengthening. The Staff is a Kind, Caring, Courteous group of people. They always have your best interest at heart. In April of 2000, I fell and broke my left hip and left elbow. I received therapy in the Hospital and in the Nursing Home where I stayed for a month. Then, I had home therapy after coming home for a month. I still had a lot of pain and was limited in my movements. I talked with my Doctor about this and he sent me to Renewal Rehabilitation. It was the nicest thing he could do for me after the initial putting my leg back together. Also, I had a terrible fear of falling again although I had never fallen before. In the process of my treatments, I began to loose my fear of falling and that was due to the encouragement from the Physical Therapist teaching me how to walk with confidence again. So, I am still a fan of Renewal Rehabilitation as I come twice a week for exercises and body strengthening and to keep my agility. I do this because I don’t work in my yard a lot anymore and it’s just good for the body. Did I mention I am 76 years young and still enjoying a good life? Join us for renewing your body, mind, and spirit.

This Renewal Rehab is a great place to get tuned up for life when one's body is physically in trouble. My first visit was a spy mission to find a good place to get issues addressed and I had a choice of three and they are absolutely the best of them all. Thanks

How do you thank someone who has taken you from constant muscle pain and fatigue to, at 56, having more energy than my three sons in their 20’s? I first met Mike at Renewal Rehab while having treatment for Plantar Fasciitis (heel pain). Mike quickly eliminated that pain which I had suffered for 5 years. He then offered to work with me in strengthening my core and building flexibility. Thirty years of traveling on airplanes had left me overweight, stiff and constantly pulling this or that back muscle. The result? I have lost 40 lbs, reduced my body fat from 27.5% to 18%; my Body Mass Index went from 32 to 25; my waist is 7 inches slimmer; my blood pressure 105/65! And, did I mention that I have more energy than my three sons in their 20’s?!! I now enjoy racquetball, water skiing, golf and traveling PAIN FREE! Mike has given me exercises that I do when I travel. I look forward to every workout at Renewal Rehab, and enjoy the professionalism, sincere concern for my health and fellowship of Mike and his staff! Thanks for giving me my life back! May God continue to bless you! I cannot recommend Renewal Rehab highly enough!

I must start off saying the the staff here is second to none. I had a very unusual injury to both my arms. In laymen terms I had both tennis elbow and golfers elbow in both arms. The staff of professionals here figured out how to take care if both problem with a series of excerises and treatment that took care of it. They did this with, may I say gentle loving care. I always looked forward at coming in for treatment because not only did they work on my injuries but did it with fun included. Yes I said fun very one made it extremely enjoyable to be a therapy. All the staff always had a smile on their face and clearly enjoyed what they did. I highly recommend Renewal Rehab and always tell everyone I talk to that they are the best.

I have had Sciatica since and Scoliosis since my early childhood. I have always been in back pain. Several doctors suggested to me physical therapy. I chose Renewal Rehabilitation because of its reputation, specifically the reputation of Michael Anastasas. His professional and personalized care has kept me out of a wheelchair. When I first began physical therapy with Michael and his team, he started me out slowly by teaching me how to exercise to strengthen my body and core muscles. I became stronger and stronger. I began to walk without dragging my right leg. I feel stronger than I have in a long time! I will always be grateful to Michael and his team for their professionalism and support in helping to improve my well being. With appreciation, Sidney Schuster

Unfortunately I have had to go through rehab for a variety of reasons for the past several years. Fortunately, I was recommended to a facility with "personalized" care, called Renewal Rehab. The quality of care, personal attention and the home-like-positive environment makes it a place that you look forward to coming to. So much so, I continue to come far beyond my formal treatment. I have and will continue to highly recommend Renewal Rehab to anyone looking to improve their physical fitness.

I began therapy 8/17/11 at Renewal Rehab. Gregory Todd was and is to this day my therapist and reason I have gotten my life back. I have severe spinal stenosis, a deterioration of the lumbar joints caused by arthritis. The condition is severe, the proof being in the MRI. Greg has taught me to have confidence in myself while at the same time has helped me to walk again, go up and down stairs and most importantly to dance at my niece's wedding. This was all accomplished under the loving care of the therapy at Renewal Rehab. I can truly say this because before coming here, I attended another facility where I accomplished nothing-I might say I got worse. I will be forever grateful to all the folks at Renewal Rehab and I repeat "for giving me my life back." Thank you!

I recently was operated on at Walter Reed Medical Center in Washington DC for a ruptured disc and stenosis of the spine. I was directed by my surgeon to seek additional medical treatment, in the form of Physical Therapy, to regain strength in my right leg and found one of your rehabilitation Clinic close to my house. I must tell you that your staff, led by Mr. Greg Todd, is one of the most qualified I have ever worked with in my forty years as a government official. With the war going on in Iraq and Afghanistan, I have seen the results of horrendous wounds which resulted in amputations, wounds, etc. and physical therapy required to bring these young men and women back to useful life. The Physical Therapy Division at Walter Reed is one of the best in the world and I must rate your clinic here in that same class. I know that my situation was not as serious as losing a limb but I had dropped foot and a serious loss of strength in my right leg. Mr. Todd and Mr. Chris Sequenzia have done wonders getting me back on my feet. In just two weeks, my right foot is moving and I am gaining strength in the right leg. Both of these young therapists excel at their profession. They are knowledgeable, courteous, and most of all professional in every aspect of rehabilitation. I watch them working with others and this is a superior staff of the type I had working for me on major projects at the Pentagon. Nothing is left to chance. Ms. Cheryl Lang, the receptionist, greets everyone as they enter and takes time explaining the billing process. This is a facility one enjoys doing business with every day. I would appreciate it if you could convey my thoughts to this fine group of young professionals. Very respectfully, Thomas O’Neill

I first met Greg Todd & his staff a few years ago for back pain, and they took excellent care of me. Recently, however, my need for PT came about after I experienced a running injury. I knew that I would get the best possible care at Renewal Rehab. Greg and Julie (and everyone else!) made me feel comfortable, fully explaining every thing I was doing, how to do it well and WHY it would benefit me. They're such a knowledgeable, supportive group and treated my successes as their own. I'll soon begin training for my first full marathon, and, after my family, Greg & his group will be the first that I will celebrate my accomplishment with. I cannot thank them enough for getting me back on track.

I have found that the staff at Renewal Rehab. provide the right treatment at the right time. But, even more, all of the staff are personable, friendly and attentive. They have a sincere desire and focus on getting you back to wellness. I certainly would recommend this facility to those needing physical therapy.

Wow!!! What a difference Renewal Rehabilitation and Fitness has made in my life. I have been a jogger for a number of years. I also worked out in the gym on my own a couple of times a week. As the years marched on, I was encountering a number of injuries. When I started attending Renewal Rehab & Fitness on a regular basis, I learned the proper way to train and strengthen all parts of the body. I know this organization has greatly enhanced my overall fitness and added to my quality of life. The icing on the cake is that they actually make it fun!

My son Trae had surgery on his on 31 Dec 14 by Dr. Craythorne who recommended Renewal Rehab but also said I could choose another one that was closer in Brandon. I praise God for sticking with his recommendation, I have been pleased 100% with the progress he made and has now completed his theraphy, Nick and Claudia are very professional and pushed Trae to his fullest so that he would have full use of his knee, I am confident that when he graduated in June and pursue his career in the USAF that his knee will not give him any problems. And last Christina was very nice also with scheduling and rescheduling appointments and getting additional referrals. The South Tampa Staff is the best I highly recommend them.
Stephanie S.
Greg and crew are amazing! I felt at home when I came into the facility. They have perfected the balance between personal and professional. I wouldn't recommend any other physical therapist than Greg. He took a woman who was told I may need knee replacement surgery to full recovery with just physical therapy. Now, I am currently enrolled in dance classes. I have the confidence to achieve this life long dream because of the encouragement and expertise of Greg! I cannot articulate with the right words how amazing they are.

I was referred to 'renewal Rehabilitation" to resolve a pinched nerve between my left leg and hip. Any activity was very limited as a cane was needed for balance and pain. I'm 69, retired and my Golden Years were anything but. Over the past three months Julie Tellefsen and the entire Wesley Chapel staff have enabled me to go anywhere at anytime. I can even climb stairs! Julie. Carolyn, Wendi, Lebbet, Samantha, Nick and the entire staff worked to identify the problem area, devise a program for corrective action then implement that program to correct the aliment, rebuild my strength and teach me how to continue to improve every day. I am very appreciative and recommend "renewal Rehabilitation" to everyone!
Paul ANthonissen
Mike and his staff did a great job in helping me regain range of motion in my shoulder. Thank you for "thawing" out my frozen shoulder!
Brett Mourer
My husband (74 yrs), my mother (95 yrs) and I (69 yrs) have been using Renewal for almost 2 years and have been helped greatly. Michael is patient, encouraging, and professional, and the other therapists (Sammie, Carly, and Nick) were and are the BEST. As with most "old-age" pains, the PT results are slow coming and require dedication by both patient and therapist--the Renewal staff makes the results achievable by their positive, professional attitudes and care.

The staff is very pleasant and VERY patient at Renewal Rehab. They are very knowledgeable of all my questions regarding my specific injuries and what I can tolerate. They constantly reaffirm whether I am doing things correctly or not , to ensure that I get the best out of my treatment. The staff is very accommodating to my schedule as I constantly have to make changes. I enjoyed the camaraderie amongst patients as well. Seeing others that can relate to your situation and witnessing their progression was really motivating. The energy is so uplifting that you look forward to coming to therapy knowing that you will be surrounded by great people. I would highly recommend Renewal Rehab for any one seeking physical therapy services. As a fitness (Therafit) client they took the time to listen to what my goals where, which were strength training for degenerative disc in my lower back as well as strengthening and toning to improve my overall health and weight loss. They made a personalized program , knowing my history. I had my own schedule and reserved the fitness room in the back with music, of which I had access to up to 5 times a week. My program was updated regularly as I progressed. Coming to Renewal is always an uplifting experience where you will develop relationships with people who encourage you and challenge you. They guided me in my health and fitness while giving me the tools to succeed on my own.
