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.
