Physical Therapy

Recovering from injury, surgery, or disability can be a long and arduous process. Our physical therapy specialists help patients regain the strength, function, and stamina needed to facilitate recovery. 

Helping People Heal Faster & Live Pain-Free Improving Strength, Function & Performance With Physical Therapy

Whether you've recently sustained an injury or have been dealing with chronic pain for a long time, physical therapy can be an enormously helpful part of your recovery. Physical therapists not only help you regain the strength you need to function pain-free, but they also help you establish good form in your movements to prevent further pain and injury. 

Physical therapists can help relieve pain and dysfunction for people with:

  • Sports Injuries

  • Neurological Conditions

  • Muscle & Joint Pain

  • Surgery Recovery

  • Repetitive Motion Injuries

What can I expect from my first physical therapy visit?

Your first visit with a physical therapist will largely be an assessment of your strength, range of motion, and baseline levels of discomfort. You'll also discuss your goals for therapy and the rehabilitation plan going forward—including how often you'll need to be seen, for how long, and what work you'll be expected to do at home. 

What should I wear to my physical therapy appointment?

We generally advise patients to dress comfortably. If you're coming from work, you may bring a set of clothes to change into. The most important thing is that you are comfortable and that you wear loose clothing around the area of concern. We also recommend tennis shoes, especially if you're dealing with a leg injury.

Can physical therapy help me avoid surgery?

For some people, physical therapy is a good first line of treatment when they begin experiencing pain. The idea is that stronger muscles with good form will function better with less pain. However, whether or not this is an option for you depends on the nature of your pain and/or injury. Talk to your physician about whether physical therapy may be able to help you avoid surgery.
