Whether you are new to physical therapy or trying treatment again for ongoing pain, our therapists are ready to help you improve your quality of life. We provide the following services to treat patients with a variety of therapy needs:

Communication is a vital piece of therapy whether it is patient to therapist, two therapists or therapist to doctor. We want everyone to be up-to-date on the care plan and how therapy is progressing. We're all on the same team and together, we will work to achieve your goals.

What you can expect

Our team focuses on caring for each patient and reaching his/her goals. During your initial appointment, our therapist will ask about your injury, home environment, activity level, interests and your goals. Do you want to be able to pick up your grandchild? Do you want to start running again? Or would you like to enjoy cooking dinner without pain?

We'll listen and document the information you providing a roadmap for your treatment and, most importantly, get you back to daily life.

Your therapist will also check your strength and flexibility. During that first appointment, our goal is to provide information about:

  • Your injury
  • Your treatment plan and how it will help you
  • the number of appointments you can expect for treatment

We often begin treatment during your first appointment, which will be 45-60 minutes.

During therapy, we will work together to help you improve your quality of life and get you back to the activities you enjoy.
