What Makes Us Different?

We're not your 'traditional' physical therapy practice.

1-on-1 sessions with your Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT)

Communication & check-ins with your DPT between visits

Sport Performance Training and Conditioning

Fewer visits - we won't see you more than 1x per week

Custom home exercise programs, with accountability

No hidden fees. | HSA or FSA accepted |We provide superbills for you to submit to your insurance for reimbursement

We strive to be as transparent and streamlined as possible.
As an out-of-network (OON) clinic, we do not have any contracts directly with insurance companies. This is GREAT news for you.

See below how this plays a role in your quality of care:

Your Doctor of Physical Therapy gets to hand select the interventions they think are most appropriate for you, rather than having your insurance company dictate what's best.

Your entire session is spent with our Doctor - no getting passed off to technicians or assistants, or sharing your treatment time with other clients. You are our focus.

We value your time. At our practice, we don't see the need for you to come in more than once per week - unless you want to. We know you're doing the complete home program we give you. This translates to fewer hours spent in medical appointments per week or month.

You'll likely end up saving money. You get to come straight to us - not getting the runaround by a bunch of medical offices for appointments, and having to come in 2-3 times per week.

This is performance based physical therapy. We know you like to be active, so we're going to get 'functional' early on in your treatment.

Forget the printouts of your home exercises. We
custom build our database of exercises just for you. Your Doctor of Physical Therapy will follow up your session by recording, uploading, and assigning video exercises to your portal. Any specific cues you need? You'll hear those instructions in the video.


Performance Programming

Whether you need a strength, mobility, or conditioning program - we've got you covered. Let's optimize your performance.


Injury? Pain? Come in and see our Doctor of Physical Therapy to get started on your rehab plan that gets you back in the game.


You're an athlete. Training takes its toll some days - make sure you're taking care of your body. Come in for a recovery session to address soreness and training related aches and pains.
