I have been to see Mark 3 different times for 3 different reasons. The last time , I was having difficulty in gait mechanics.  After a
quick evaluating, Mark was able to give me exercises to correct my problem.  I love knowing that Mark and his assistants are just a phone call away.

Mark helped me through several injuries, but most importantly is whence helped me get a proper diagnosis and recover from a fractured spine.  I left with my injuries healed and stronger than I was before.  It was always fun coming into the gym and listening to the Beatles on the radio.  Thanks for everything Mark.  Wouldn't be where I am today without your help.

Mark Slaughter is the top physical therapist in our area.  His one-on-one personal and professional attention with myself as a patient and my family, is greatly appreciated!  He has not only helped us with issues we have had, he takes the extra step to insure that we are stronger to prevent future injuries.  He worked closely with our daughter's surgeon before and after her ACL surgery and it was a total success!  Thank you for always being there!

I'm an avid bicycling enthusiast. Three years ago I had a total knee replacement and went to Mark Slaughter, owner of Fyzical Therapy & Balance Center for my therapy.  Eight weeks later I was back on my bike and rode in a 34 mile bike race. Four months ago I had my other knee replaced and I returned to Fyzical Therapy & Balance Center again for physical therapy.  Two months later I was again riding my bike at which time I hired Physical Therapist, Mark Slaughter as my trainer to strengthen my body for the upcoming biking season.  I'm 68 years old with two new knees.  I just purchased an all carbon fiber bike loaded with high end components and I'm riding 30 and 40 mile loops with my two sons at an average speed of 18 mph.  I owe a lot of gratitude to my Physical Therapist and trainer, Mark Slaughter.

This is the perfect place to come to if you are in pain and then to continue coming to to stay on track. It is a small, friendly place to work out. The atmosphere is always positive and encouraging. Mark keeps an eye on everyone so we do our exercises right. He is always right - but don't tell him I said that!

Dealing with a dislocated and broken shoulder AND not being able to start my last school year before retirement, I walked into Fyzical a Therapy and Balance Center and met Mark Slaughter and crew.  They made the next 1 1/2 years lots of very hard work but at the same time I had a blast! Who knew trying to rehab a shoulder could be so much fun? I received excellent treatment from the entire staff and I recommend Fyzical to anyone needing physical therapy.

Getting injured is no laughing matter, however the care I received  at Fyzical Therapy made recovery more bearable. Mark and his team, (including four little dogs), are caring, compassionate, knowledgeable, and somehow made therapy enjoyable.

I have been going to the FYZICAL Therapy and Balance Center for over a decade of my life. Throughout that time, Mark Slaughter has treated me like family and has helped me through some very difficult injuries and life events. I always have a great experience there and know that I can count on them to help every time!

Kudos to Mark Slaughter and the staff at FYZICAL. I can’t praise Mark, Pat, Sharon and his staff (even their dogs) enough for the way they treated me. They made me feel like part of their family. I highly recommend them for any of your physical therapy needs.

I was a mess when I first came to Mark. My recovery from my total knee replacement had not gone well. My knee flexion and extension numbers were actually worse than before my surgery ten weeks before. I honestly thought I was going to have to live with the pain and lack of mobility for the rest of my life. It was a friend of mine who actually recommended Mark.

When I went in for my first consultation Mark listened, evaluated my progress, and developed a plan especially designed for me. It wasn’t a “one size fits all” like I had been getting. Mark explained the reason for each exercise. He always gave me positive feedback and encouragement. When I went back to my doctor after only three weeks with Mark he was pleasantly surprised with my progress. After another four weeks with Mark I was released from my doctor’s care and was able to go back to work. Amen to that! With my next knee replacement, I’ll go to Mark first!!

A few years ago I had a knee replacement. Getting your knee straight again is a problem after that. Mark worked on it for several weeks and it is straight an functioning well today.

For months I had been having pain in my left knee when bending it or climbing stairs, then gradually growing into constant pain, so I decided to have Mark Slaughter at FYZICAL Therapy and Balance Center check out the issue.  I chose Mark after hearing different friends recommend him from experiences they had after therapy from their injuries and knee replacement surgeries.  They were pleased with his knowledge, compassion and concern to get them back to a better quality of life.  Mark evaluated my range of motion and pain level and suggested I see an orthopedist. I followed his advice, had arthroscopic surgery a few weeks later to correct the problem and was told I would need about 6 weeks of therapy at the therapist of my choice.  Of course, I returned to FYZICAL Therapy and Balance Center. Not only was I able to be pain free but I am also able to keep up with my 4 young grandchildren, running, jumping on the trampoline with them and roller skating.  Through Mark and his staff I also learned better posture and proper movements to ease the stress on joints. And they made it FUN too!!!!

Mary Grose

I came to Mark not knowing if he could help me with my chronic hip pain. After he did a thorough evaluation, he immediately saw that my stance/walking/sitting and getting up were all wrong and he went about to improve these everyday positions/movements right away with several exercises aimed at strengthening the core especially the glutes. This reduced my limping and some of the pain that I was experiencing. Later when he introduced some new exercises which involved weight-bearing on my affected leg and I couldn't tolerate them, he could see that this was not normal and referred me back to my doctor which I really appreciate. I may end up needing surgery but I am so glad I did this stint of physical therapy with Mark because I'm stronger and I've learned better body mechanics which as a nurse, I really need. And, in case I need surgery, I'm sure that I'll recovery that much better. I have told so many people about Mark. He has a keen eye and is quick to share it with you and he is always so encouraging. Lastly, he, Pat and Sharon have created an atmosphere in their studio which is so friendly and relaxed -- it was a pleasure to be there. Thank you, Mark!

I had crossed things off my list that I didn’t think my body could do due to overuse and injury. 

Mark proved me wrong and I have never been as strong and healthy as I am today. The 

techniques he has taught me (ALWAYS with proper form), I will carry with me forever. Getting to 

the gym isn’t a problem for me anymore…it’s leaving.

I have been working with Mark (The Fifth Beatle) for many, many years and I can't thank him enough for what he has done. He's helped me maintain my arm very well and is always there when I need him. He's kept me on the ball field all these years and it means the world to me.

I had major shoulder surgery in March of 2016. My work insurance provided for many therapy visits. When that coverage expired, I knew that I needed more therapy to regain full use of my shoulder.
Mark was recommended by a friend. Both Mark and Sharon provided the necessary guidance to rehab my shoulder. After release by the surgeon, I continued daily visits with the Fyzical staff. They consistently provide recommendations and suggestions to maintain my shoulder mobility and to increase my overall physical strength and flexibility.
I strongly recommend Fyzical for any therapy or workout needs. The environment is warm and friendly. The patrons provide encouragement for each other. It is a family atmosphere where care for each person is felt. I truly appreciate all the help that the entire staff has provided to me. They are awesome.

Fyzical of Edwardsville is my “go to” spot for the best physical therapy care for me. Mark is extremely knowledgeable in his field, and actually makes physical therapy more fun than it otherwise would be.  He’s not afraid to think outside the box in order to help you get better. He & Sharon have helped me rehab a painful hip, and now a broken elbow. I am thankful I found this clinic.

Mark helped me rehabilitate after 4 shoulder surgeries.  I couldn't ask for better care that what I got from Mark and the rest of the staff.  He is very encouraging, supportive, and knowledgeable in all aspects of physical therapy.  He doesn't hesitate to scold you when you do something wrong, either. I wouldn't consider going anywhere else should I need any type of physical therapy in the future.

Through my athletic career, Mark helped me overcome injuries quickly and become the strongest I have been.  His caring demeanor and encouragement made me push harder to achieve more.  He genuinely cares about the people he works with and makes the experience very comfortable.

After spending almost 4 months on complete bedrest at Mercy Hospital for complications associated with my triplet pregnancy, I needed extensive therapy.  At the time, I could not walk up  stairs without sitting on each step and using my arms to assist me. My doctor recomended Mark Slaughter.   She as well as other doctor friends, use him for their personal p.t. I went in for my initial visit and immeditely knew I was in great hands. They worked with me and my busy schedule of raising preemie triplets. Mark was one on one with me each visit using the latest techniques to ensure my full recovery.  He makes it fun with his awesome personality and jokes. He always asked for updates on my triplets.  Mark pours his heart into his patients to make sure they are at their best.  He loves his job and helping others and it TRULY shows! The clinic is a fun atmosphere where you always feel welcome. I have referred my own family and friends to him numerous times.  As for me, I now have the strength to enjoy normal activities thanks to Mark!

I'm in my 70's and received a gift certificate from my daughter-in-law to go to Mark as a trainer. I hadn't exercised for over a year!After only five months with Mark, I feel better and more active than I have in 30 years!  I never dreamed I would would swing kettle bells, lunge with a pole in my hands, or do pull-ups and dips, but Mark told me my body could do anything if my mind would let it, and it's true!  Thanks, Mark!!

Thanks to Mark and Sharon at FYZICAL therapy I now enjoy a pain free active lifestyle again!!  Their expertise, encouragement , and comedic relief, restored full function to my knee after a painful knee replacement. Mark had empathy for my pain but never allowed it to interfere with achieving my maximum recovery results.

My experience with Mark Slaughter and his clinic was not only fun but also a very good learning experience. Everyday he had his clients learn new things ranging from stretching to learning about how your body actually works. You get a vibe when you walk in that you are in a pretty special place because Mark is usually jamming out to the Beatles when you walk in. Mark Slaughter is one very interesting and intelligent man. He has taught me how to use and work my body better than any doctor or physician ever could have. Overall Mark runs a wonderful clinic with so many different great things to offer to not only please the client, but their body as well.

Mark and Sharon were instrumental in my progress to gain strength, balance and flexibility after multiple surgeries on my legs. He brought a new awareness to all my workouts. He encouraged my success with a positive attitude and attentiveness.
Thank you Mark, I feel I was given a second chance to be better and stronger.

I thought I had a knee injury, and Mark pointed me to a good knee surgeon. It turned out I needed both knees replaced. Mark encouraged me to get both knees done at once. It was the best decision I could have made, including going to Mark and Sharon for my PT. They were excellent, and I recovered quickly... actually better than I've been in years. I enjoyed the Fyzical family and the relaxed atmosphere.

THANKS for getting me back to good!

I remember the first day I walked into physical therapy with a full neck and back brace.  Fourteen broken bones (8 vertebrae, 5 ribs and a collar bone) and still recovering from a c-section, I knew the biggest challenge was ahead of me.  Mark was there from the moment he saw me.  He became my foundation over the next two and half years of treatment.  Mark’s therapy program is like no other as he understands and treats the mind, the body and the soul.   His personal connection with all his patients shines through physically, mentally and emotionally.  As a brand new mom, Mark and his staff welcomed my new baby as she spent 3 days a week the first year of her life in therapy with her mom.    I truly become part of a bigger family when I joined Mark’s program and that was the support I needed.  The atmosphere is extremely positive, encouraging and welcoming.  And the results!  Well, that is just simply amazing.  I remember the first day the neck brace was removed.  I had zero ability to turn my head.  I sat in a chair without the brace for a couple minutes and I was completely wiped out for the rest of the day and had to go home and sleep.  This was the starting point yet Mark never felt defeated.  My road to recovery with Mark was a journey but it was a positive journey that brought me back to normal life skills and functions.  I was able to hold my baby again, I learned how to drive again, I was able to go back to work full time and the pain kept improving.  When doctors said there was nothing more to do, Mark never stopped treating and I am so thankful that he did.

Instead of traveling an hour one way to work out with my club volleyball team my senior year, I chose to work with Mark. Marks main focus was body control and correct form. I worked a lot with body weight exercise and the kettle bells. Currently I work out with my college team at McKendree University and I've found that the work I did with Mark prepared me excellently for what lifts and exercises we do here.

I'm so glad to have had the opportunity to meet and work with Mark during my high school career. I didn't have the best understanding of how to train and treat my body for the long run. Now 7 going on 8 years later I'm making a run to play professional volleyball.

What a GREAT place to rehab! Mark Slaughter, PT is both professional and personal and he always puts his patients best interest as his number one priority by going over and beyond to assure progress. It's clear how much he cares about his patients.
Sharon is terrific too!! As a massage therapist and recipient I am very particular in choosing a therapist. In my opinion, Mark Slaughter and his staff are the best in the area.

My experiences with Fyzical Therapy and Balance Center has been exceptionally satisfying. I recently had both knees replaced and with their professional therapy, I am motivated and feeling better than I have in years. I have had many friends watchimg my progress and  they have asked me how I'm am doing so well, so fast. I say "Mark Slaughter's Fyzical Therapy & Balance Center  in Edwardsville.  It's both professional and fun, and I have met many new friends who have had the same experience."

It's special to know someone like Mark. He is been a part of me & my family for a very long time. Sports is in my whole family's DNA, & Mark makes me understand my body & helped make me who I am today. Mark has touched the lives of many people & influenced them to be better in everything they do. Mark is the best in the business, no doubt about it.

I'm happy to highly recommend Mark Slaughter and the staff at Fyzical Therapy & Balance Centers.  I broke my fibula at the ankle and had 9 weeks of non-weight bearing in a fixed position. The result? A locked and very painful ankle joint!  Mark listened carefully to my situation and put together a plan that has yielded great results using a variety of exercises and treatments. (I even had cupping done like the Olympic athletes!)


Mark and Sharon are quick to listen and try new approaches as I have progressed. Information about the mechanics of walking is important and they have done a great job teaching me how to monitor my movement to avoid future problems. The atmosphere created at Fyzical feels like family and they exhibit a personal and very caring attitude.


Additionally, I have had lower back pain for about 30 years.  Mark suggested a few exercises and talked with me about posture and how to move and miraculously, I am pain free now.   I now know what to do should I have pain again.  In the front office, Pat Slaughter is great and makes scheduling easy even working around my business travel schedule.


I found Fyzical on the recommendation of a friend and I wholeheartedly agree!!

I have been driving from Alton to do therapy with Mark for about 12 years. The drive is well worth it. Mark has helped me with many problems. Back, hands, wrists and a knee replacement. I trust him with my whole being!! I love exercising with him twice a week. I have osteoarthritis and rheumatoid and he is always looking out for me while exercising. I highly recommend him for his one and one caring techniques.

Surgery is a frightening experience and the thought of physical therapy following surgery can be unsettling as well. I had both knees and a hip replaced within a five year period. I discovered Mark Slaughter for PT for my second knee and hip replacement and couldn't have been more pleased. Mark and his professional staff at Fyzical Therapy & Balance Centers were encouraging and never pushed me beyond my physical limitations. As a result of an exceptional therapy experience, I have frequently recommend Mark to my friends.

My PT experience profoundly effected me as the young adult I am today. I remember my first day of physical therapy barely being able to walk. Mark and his staff were extremely dedicated and determined to help me walk again, continue playing high school tennis, and reach my ultimate goal of playing tennis at the collegiate level.

Mark Slaughter is absolutely brilliant when it comes to figuring out what’s going on with your body when things quit working right or you need surgical recovery!  He got me up & moving the same day I went to see him for back problems and plantars fasciitis after several visits to an ortho surgeon, a foot doctor and 2 chiropractors couldn’t seem to help me.  Amazing!  He’s down-to-earth, fun, easy to learn from and so genuine.  He truly cares about making people the very best they can be!  Mark is simply the best there is.  Period.

I get by with a little help from my friends- my friend Mark, that is. I have had the "pleasure" of Mark helping me rehabilitate after two injuries- knee surgery and a broken wrist. Mark knows how to push you "just a little bit further" to get the most out of your session and to get you back to your old self as soon as possible. I recommend Mark and Pat- and the puppies- to everyone!

I went to FYZICAL Of Edwardsville for physical therapy after my surgery for a torn rotator cuff.  Mark did an excellent job of getting my shoulder back into condition. My son also went to there for a workout program for high school sports. Mark and the staff provided him with an all around workout program that made him stronger and more fit. I highly recommend Mark and FYZICAL Of Edwardsville!

When my back flares up, I know I can depend on Mark to get me back to 100% or close! Everyone you meet there always greets you with a smile, very family oriented place. If you are hurting, go there, you will be glad you did.

Anna Brase

Many people get a break, sprain or twist once in their life, but how do you choose where you go afterwards? My name is Anna Brase; I go to EHS and I sprained my ankle the day before my freshman year started. It was awful and I had never experienced something like that before. I was an active person and didn’t want to hurt it more. I was in a cast for a week and a boot for 3 weeks. After, I knew I had to go to physical therapy, but where? I talked to some resources and I heard the name Mr. Mark Slaughter. He came highly recommended.
My first day was great he taught me new exercises and motions to do with my ankle. I could barely stand on my ankle the first day. I continued to go every other day during the week and made great relationships with Mr. Slaughter and all the people in the work place. My ankle healed faster than I ever thought it would; everyday something new to do and everyday getting stronger. On my last day, honestly, I was upset I would miss everybody there, but my ankle was back to 100%! I remember on the last day being able to swing on the monkey bars and land with no problem. I would recommend that if you have to go to physical therapy Mr. Mark Slaughter is the one to go to, no matter your age.
I can’t tell you how much he did for me. Thank you Mr. Mark Slaughter and your staff for everything!

Mark Slaughter and his staff at Fyzical Therapy & Balance Center are very knowledgeable, professional, caring, friendly, and helpful. Mark was able to diagnose my problem even when I was unable to say exactly what was wrong with me! He pinpointed my injury and tailored my therapy sessions which ultimately reduced my pain and furthered the healing process. Mark took his time explaining my injury, what was needed to heal and also what was necessary to prevent a recurrence of my injury. Despite being injured, It was always a pleasure going to therapy because of the upbeat personalities at FYZICAL

After suffering a back injury while exercising and not getting any relief with the measures I was taking, I decided to try physical therapy. My care with Mark and his staff at Fyzical was fantastic. My consult was thorough and he knew exactly where my problem was and gave me several strategies and exercises to do immediately. His insight into my overall posture has not only helped my back to begin the healing process but has addressed other health issues I've had including planter's fasciitis and costochondritis.I use what I've learned through my PT with Mark and Sharon in my everyday movement patterns as well as when I workout.I have shifted my focus to realize that I need to do every rep as it is the only one and do it perfectly! I am trying to be patient with my recovery and realize that this is a way of life and it's all about maintenance and prevention! When I get discouraged, they are there to encourage me through the process.

Eighteen years ago I broke my back. Sounds awful, I know. The great news is that after that injury I was lucky enough to meet Mark Slaughter. As my physical therapist Mark listened to me and learned about my injury and cared enough also to understand my limitations.  Fast forward 11 years and another injury. Again I chose Mark as my physical therapist because I know he is the best there is. Patient and kind, caring and encouraging, Mark Slaughter is the person who will help you recover.

Francesca Cooper

I first met Mark over five years ago when I was struggling with neck and shoulder issues that were occasionally incapacitating. Little did I know the path upon which I was embarking: not only did Mark address and treat my neck pain, he introduced me to an entirely new way of exercising and living. It is no exaggeration to say that Mark has changed my life. At 45, I am without doubt the strongest I have ever been, and under Mark's guidance I am still getting stronger! Everything Mark does is designed to meet people where they are - he decreases pain and increases confidence; he improves posture and diminishes poor movement patterns; but most importantly, he gives people whatever tools they need to live their best possible lives. His grasp of the body as a multi-faceted mechanism is unparalleled in the sport and fitness world today. He doesn't believe in gimmicks, and there is no quick fix for anything. But at the same time, his work is incredibly intuitive and consistent. He knows what works for bodies, and his ability to motivate his patients and inspire change is truly awesome. Watching patients improve under Mark's excellent treatment and support has been a highlight of my life over these past years. He is a remarkable therapist and an exceptional person. Thank you, Mark!

I first chose to go to Mark Slaughter for physical therapy for a pretty severe ankle injury. I showed up in an air cast that I was put in at the ER. Mark laughed, told me to never put that thing on again, and my therapy began immediately. His passion for getting people pain-free is evident in every exercise he has his patients do, in every conversation he has, in just his presence. I have gone to Mark and his staff for a variety of issues from my ankle injury to knee pain to tennis elbow, and my pain is quickly relieved through his therapy, at-home exercises, and caring approach to life in general. Mark and his staff are the best of the best! I have referred many to him, including my son, and will continue to only go to him for any needs in the future!

I've suffered from back pain since I was 13 years old, caused by Scoliosis and then a major auto accident. A need for physical therapy took me to Mark Slaughter, who examined my back and listened to my history and complaints. With Marks professional direction, I was able to begin strength training and endurance exercise and learned how not to hurt myself. Mark taught me techniques that I use daily to stay pain-free. He genuinely cares about people getting better. Thanks, Mark!

When I broke my wrist 2 years ago,  I went to Mark Slaughter for rehab following surgical repair.  Thanks to Mark and his staff, I have regained full use of my hand and wrist.  I had both knees replaced in one surgery last September, and again went to Mark for successful rehab.  I would think of going nowhere else.  The atmosphere is professional and caring, but also casual and homey - the best of both worlds.  This is the only place I will go and I recommend it highly!

I have worked with Mark Slaughter for over ten years rehabilitating various body parts from surgery or injuries. Most recently my lower back started hurting so I could not sleep at night. Mark showed me how to increase the flexibility in my back and strengthen my body to prevent future problems. I would rather drive 45 minutes each way to see Mark then see someone closer, who gave me poor results.

As a repeat patient, I can say I would never go anywhere else for my therapy. Mark is a great PT. He’s always got an alternative plan or a different set of exercises if you are not getting results from the originally prescribed plan. He’s always got a smile and a wise crack to keep the mood light. Whatever your ache or pain – Mark at Fyzical of Edwardsville can help you out.

Mark Slaughter was very important in the rehabilitation and advancement of my athleticism when recovering from injury. Mark knows so much about the body and sports, which makes him a great asset to know. At Fyzical Therapy I know I can go to Mark with any questions or needs and get them answered in one visit. I would recommend Mark to not just athletes, but anyone that
develops an injury and is seeking rehabilitation or just wants to get stronger.
