A clinic that helps:
Student Athletes and Weekend Warriors return to the sports and activities they love after injury even if they are fearful of re~injury or losing their competitive edge!
Retired active folks stay active after surgery or injury especially if they are afraid they have lost their mobility and function!
Families with student athletes make smart choices about treatment that won't waste time, money or energy!
Who we see . . .
Student Athletes, who want to get back to their sport after injury, optimize healing and reduce the risk of further injury OR prevent injury and optimize their athletic performance while avoiding pain.
Health Conscious Women and Moms, who want to look and feel healthier, be able to shuttle their kids to their activities and honor their own daily commitments which is easier to do WITHOUT pain and stiffness.
Adult Athletes, who want to be FIT and ready for the next workout class at the gym, round of golf, hiking on the weekends or run/bike after work.
"On-the-go" Men and Dads, who know that living with pain isn't good for them and want to have the energy for work AND play . . .
Sensible Men and Women, who know that painkillers are NOT the best answer and who feel let down by the healthcare system and who want to GET BETTER.
Adults Preparing for Knee or Hip Surgery, who know that preparation is KEY to the success of joint replacement surgery and want to maximize their outcomes and make their lives easier post-surgery.
Active Grandparents, who know that playing with the grandchildren is a lot EASIER and ENJOYABLE if they're in less pain and free of stiffness.
Concerned Men and Women, who know that it is much easier to fend off "deadly" threats like Arthritis, Heart Disease, Stroke, and Joint Pain if they can keep ACTIVE, mobile, and able to exercise for as long as possible.
People who take their health very seriously.
A lot of people who visit us are very "pro-active" about their health. That means they read up on foods, vitamins, health topics, try to eat right, take vitamins and other supplements - and do their best to stay out of the surgeon's office and the hospital. The very same motivations to stay out of surgery are the reasons "why" they come to see a physical therapist like us.
Who we are . . .
Kirby the Beagle &
Chewie the Calico Cat
These "therapy pets" like to greet you at the door (of course they think you are coming to see them).
Kirby will sit in the treatment room making sure that you are cared for and comfortable.
Chewie may provide some needed entertainment and laugh therapy if you are face down on the table :)
Their sole motivation is love and promise of food!
Kirby enjoys napping, cuddling and going for walks.
Chewie enjoys hunting on the horse trails, meowing/complaining and generally being aloof.
How We "Roll" . . . :)
With energy, love and light: help people become the full expression of who they are meant to be!
To be the change we want to see in the the healthcare industry and the world . . .
By putting the "Health" back in Healthcare and the "Care" back in HealthCare!
see greatness, be greatness
work hard, play hard
