Participate in Your Recovery

Physical therapy treatment plans are individualized based your goals and needs. Physical therapy is an active, collaborative process between the patient and physical therapist. We give you the tools to be in control of your health!

Avoid Opiates

The dangers of opiates are clear and present. While they have their place in medical treatment, their risks are significant especially when overprescribed. The CDC recommends reducing the use of opiates in favor safer options like physical therapy for most chronic pain. Exercise and movement has been proven to have pain relieving effect if dosed properly for conditions like chronic low back pain, knee and hip arthritis, and fibromyalgia. Don’t just mask the pain, treat it!

Avoid Surgery

Try PT first as it is less expensive and less invasive than surgery. Physical therapy has been found to be as effective as surgery for meniscal tears and knee arthritis, rotator cuff tears, spinal stenosis, and degenerative disc disease. Choose PT first!

Save Time and Money

Choosing Physical Therapy first often saves you time and money. By seeing a PT first, you get treatment sooner rather than waiting for a physician appointment, follow-ups and potentially unnecessary and costly tests. Physical therapy first has been found to lower costs of lower back pain.
