Care Philosophy

Physical therapy is much more than "just exercise." Your PT's job is to provide the right physical stress, with the right dosage, to the right tissue or structure in your body. If done properly, this often results in a successful recovery through your body's natural process of tissue adaptation and remodeling (just like muscles that grow with resistance exercise, and bones that become more dense with proper loading). While it sounds simple, determining the appropriate stress, dosage, and body tissue can be quite complex, and not all PT's are created equal when it comes to solving this important equation. When it comes to rehabilitating your injury or surgery, your therapist matters.
