We engage in a collaborative care approach, where we work together to meet your rehabilitation goals because nobody knows your body better than you. Our primary mission is to provide you with effective and high-quality physical therapy treatment. No matter the type of pain you are experiencing, our goal is to reduce and eventually eliminate discomfort to enhance your overall physical function. We treat conditions related to trauma, physical conditions, emotional stress, and sports injuries.
Through our commitment to continuing education, you can trust that the services we provide are the newest and most advanced physical therapy treatment available.
We specialize in the McKenzie Method, which is an evidence based approach to assessing the source of a client’s pain and providing an appropriate treatment that actively involves the client in the healing process, empowering them to prevent recurrences. Results from the McKenzie Method can be seen in as little as 3-5 visits!
