Physical Therapy & Sports Rehab

Our patients are provided with quality care for pre and post-operative rehabilitation for sports and orthopedic injuries including arthroscopic surgeries, total joint replacements, spine surgeries, and fractures. We also treat patients suffering from repetitive and overuse injuries and/or trauma (i.e. resulting from a motor vehicle accident) to assist them in returning to a sport, optimal function, or help them achieve their individual personal therapy goals. Our sport specific exercises and rehabilitation programs are not just for young athletes. We treat active people in the northwest that enjoy running, cycling, triathlons, skiing/snowboarding, hiking, golfing, or any activity the region has to offer. Let us help you get back to an active lifestyle and reach your own personal goals.

What is Physical Therapy?

Physical Therapists understand the movement of the human body. This knowledge allows them to treat patients to reduce pain, improve or restore mobility, and ultimately improve function. Our therapy team will address each patient and their goals, creating treament plans to compliment healthcare and post-op rehibilitation needs. Our experienced therapists help patients return to routine day-to-day functions while educating patients on how to avoid re-injury.
