We want to get you back in the game!

Your goals are important to us. In order to achieve your goals and for treatment to be effective, it is crucial to maintain consistent and continuous treatments. Our primary goal is helping you succeed and get back in the game of life. Physical Therapy works through consistent attendance and doing your homework, including your home exercise   program. Building strength and endurance often requires more time and effort than what is done in the formal sessions with your physical therapist. If you have questions about your treatment, ask. The more you communicate with your therapist, the more invested you will be in your treatment plan. Your treatment success requires a team effort and you are the most important member of our team!

How We Treat

Our philosophy is simple, to make each patient feel better each visit. We strive to individualize each treatment session, modifying each exercise as needed, to enable the patient to achieve the highest functional outcome possible while minimizing /eliminating pain. Our therapists have worked with the GCO physicians extensively to create rehab-specific protocols for each surgical procedure performed. This way you and your physician know with confidence that we’re treating within each physician’s preferences to maximize your successful recovery.
