Physical therapy is a medical, hands-on approach to relieving pain and restoring function. Physical therapists are medical experts in musculoskeletal and neurological conditions and work closely with physicians.

Our physical therapists evaluate your movement patterns, identify the cause of your pain, and work to eliminate it.

While every patient’s condition and pain is unique, our physical therapist will use a variety of gentle hands-on techniques, exercises, and equipment to relieve pain quickly and restore your function to optimum levels.

The overall goal is to restore pain-free mobility and function and to prevent the injury or pain from recurring.

Physical Therapy is a highly-effective treatment for to help decrease pain, increase mobility, improve performance and restore function. Working with you and your physician, we can discuss your options and help determine if physical therapy will be the right choice for you. Contact us today to discuss your current condition or request an appointment now.

Physical therapy is not meant to hurt, but to relieve pain. However, as you restore your mobility, pain levels, at times can fluctuate. Our way of treating you does NOT follow a no pain, no gain approach. Good communication with your therapist will help minimize any discomfort. We want you on your way to quick pain relief and back to normal activities.
