No matter what area of the body is hurting, physical therapists have a history of providing quality care to patients. A physical therapist will help you get back into the game of life. It is our job to help you move freely again without discomfort and pain. We can help prevent injuries altogether with the right treatment methods.

Physical therapists receive specialized education in modern science including human anatomy, physics, and kinesiology. We understand how the body works, and we know how to get your body moving properly once again. There are four major systems in the body that must be in balance to restore mobility – musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, cardiovascular/pulmonary, and integumentary (skin).

Avoid Surgery

Physical therapists will help you avoid invasive, painful, and expensive surgery through the right treatment. Physical therapy combined with medical management is as effective as surgery when you have pain and stiffness in the joints. We provide a complete at-home exercise regime to help you avoid surgery.

Eliminate Pain

It is our job to locate and eliminate pain. With 80 percent of Americans suffering from back pain and other muscle ailments, we provide physical therapy treatments that mobilize the spine and can assist with exercises that alleviate pain.
