Physical therapists are experts in “the science of healing and the art of caring.”
Patients and physicians are demanding the talents of physical therapists for conservative management of a wide variety of conditions. In many cases, patients are being sent to physical therapy instead of surgery.
Physical therapists help people with orthopedic conditions such as low back pain or osteoporosis; joint and soft tissue injuries such as fractures and dislocations; neurologic conditions such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, or Parkinson’s disease; connective tissue injuries such as burns or wounds; cardiopulmonary and circulatory conditions such as congestive heart failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; and workplace injuries including repetitive stress disorders and sports injuries.
Physical therapists practice in a variety of settings, including hospitals, private practices, outpatient clinics, home health agencies, schools, sports and fitness facilities, work settings, and nursing homes. Some physical therapists seek advanced certification in a clinical specialty, such as orthopedic, neurological, cardiovascular and pulmonary, pediatric, geriatric, sports physical therapy.
The individualized, “hands on” approach that characterizes physical therapist care is highly valued by patients. When a physical therapist sees a patient for the first time, he or she examines that individual and develops a plan of care that promotes the ability to move, reduces pain, restores function, and prevents disability. The physical therapist and the patient then work side-by-side to make sure that the goals of the treatment plan are met.
Therapeutic exercise and functional training are the cornerstones of physical therapist treatment. Depending on the particular needs of a patient, physical therapists may “manipulate” a joint (that is, perform certain types of passive movements at the end of the patient’s range of motion) or massage a muscle to promote proper movement and function. Physical therapists may use other techniques such as electrotherapy, ultrasound (high-frequency waves that produce heat), hot packs, and ice in addition to other treatments when appropriate.Physical therapists will also work with individuals to prevent loss of mobility by developing fitness- and wellness-oriented programs for healthier and more active lifestyles.
Physical therapists seek to restore function, whether it is an adult to return to work, an athlete to return to his or her sport, or a senior adult to be able perform gardening for example. In outpatient therapy, our goal is to get to the source of the problem, attempt to solve the problem and get the patient independent in his or her home exercise program to prevent the injury from occurring again. They also restore, maintain, and promote overall fitness and health.

Excellent therapist with great skills and very knowledgeable in the field. I would highly recommend him for therapy to patients of any age. I am now playing golf again without back pain.
My experience was great! They are all very nice and very helpful, the workers here do a great job, and also make you feel very comfortable by building a relationship with their patients. They also strive to get you at the level you need to be at, and will give it their all to get you there. I would recommend everyone I know to go to Athlete Plus!
Very enjoyable. Instruction was concise and focus on my injury was expertly addressed. Chris let me describe in detail my injury and built a program specific to treating my issue.
I feel that I have gotten stronger and I have learned what me weak areas are. I also think that I have learned some things that I need to avoid.
I started my physical therapy in a significant amount of pain. After a couple weeks I stopped taking pain medicine because I was experiencing so much relief from pain. The staff was so helpful and knowledgeable. Every visit was a positive experience.
It was amazing that I walked in with such pain and weakness that I thought I was going to be on disability and the next step was a wheelchair. After 18 weeks of work with the trainers, I feel that I have a new expectation that I can do anything.
Excellent, Chris predicted 3 months of work and it was just at 3 months. I have great range of motion now in my shoulder. Chris and Rodney pushed me and the work paid off. Lindsi is always cheerful, helpful and sweet. x
Very helpful, they gradually increased my exercises to accomplish my goal of having no pain and greater strength. It was a much better experience than I anticipated, this was my first experience with physical therapy.
I almost didn’t come back after the first week of therapy because the pain was so bad but I’m so glad I did. My experience was so good with all of the therapy assistants. I felt they were very caring.
I feel 100% better than when I arrived. Great Staff , Good program , Thanks for getting me back on track.
