Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Heading "Our treatment focuses on One-on-One Care in which the patient encounters the same physical therapist from the initial evaluation through discharge. This increases the likelihood of a better outcome by allowing for continuity of care, enhanced treatment continuum, improved communications, and high patient satisfaction.  Our practice model embraces an evidence-based approach. This encompasses the most current, best evidence for treatment, clinical experience of the therapist, and patient preferences. "
