Not Your Grandma’s Physical Therapy

Updated: Aug 7, 2019

What is Physical Therapy?

Physical therapists (PTs) are movement experts who optimize quality of life through prescribed exercise, hands-on care, and patient education – definition straight from the American Physical Therapy Association website. What does that mean? We fix problems and pain. If you are having difficulty with a particular movement that creates pain (i.e. reaching overhead); or are unable to perform a normal activity like exercising, lifting your kids or running, then we should be your first line of defense.

With Direct Access we can now see patients without you having to see your doctor or orthopedist first. We can save you time and money by getting you in the clinic and on the road to recovery as soon as possible.

How is Manual Therapy Specialists different vs. traditional Physical Therapy?

The lists below compare and contrast some of the differences

Traditional Physical Therapy

10-15 minutes with your physical therapist

One of many people in a clinic at the same time

Give you exercises that you could do at home

Hot/Ice packs – modalities every session

Physical Therapists use Generic Protocols

Can only treat one body part at a time due to insurance limitations

Patients can get bills later for what insurance doesn’t pay for

Manual Therapy Specialists

1-hour treatments = it takes less visits to get you better

One on one treatments – just you and your therapist in private rooms
