What makes us unique?

  • Our treatments are one-on-one with the physical therapist.
  • Each treatment may include: progressive exercises, manual/hands on therapy, pain relieving modalities and patient education/home programs.

Our physical therapy is done in a unique studio setting to enhance privacy, quality and efficiency.

We give great detail to our treatments for the most effective care and most efficient outcomes.

Depending on the severity of the problem, a patient may be seen 1,2 or 3 times per week for a total duration of 2-6 weeks.

The referring physician will receive timely reports on the patient's progress.

Our physical therapists have the education and experience to deliver results

We're here for you

We offer early morning and late evening hours for patient convenience.

We are also a Direct Access Provider, therefore a referral may not be necessary.

Our Physical Therapy

We are a physical therapy practice that delivers RESULTS!

Spine Rehabilitation

Some common spine problems that are treated include: cervical and lumbar strains/sprains, cervical and lumbar radiculopathy, headaches, degenerative joint disease (DJD), degenerative disc disease (DDD), scoliosis, sacroiliac joint dysfuncions, and post-operative care for spine surgeries.

Balance & Veritgo Rehabilitation

There are many reasons why balance can be altered: vertigo/dizziness, poor strength to the lower extremities, and neurological diseases such as multiple sclerosis and strokes. Vertigo caused by BPPV can usually be resolved in one treatment session.

Orthopedic Rehabilitation

Typical orthopedic injuries may include: shoulder impingement, shoulder rotator cuff strains/tears, tendonitis/tendonopathies, degenerative joint disease (DJD), muscle strains, ligament sprains, planar fasciitis, and post-operative care such as total hip, knee, and shoulder replacements.

TMJ Rehabilitation

As with any type of joint problem, a detailed evaluation is first performed to identify the underlying cause of the problem. Treatment usually includes manual therapies and exercises to resolve the pain and restore the joints normal mobility.

Sports Performance/Injury Prevention Programs

We offer individualized exercise programs for all age groups for improving sports performance and injury prevention. These programs are formulated based on the needs of the individual.

Personal Training Programs
