What Our Patients Say
Frequently Asked Questions
What do Physical Therapists do?
The cornerstones of Physical Therapy treatment are therapeutic exercise and functional training. Physical Therapists educate patients to take care of themselves and to perform certain exercises on their own. Depending on the particular needs of a patient, Physical Therapists may also perform a variety of manual treatments that may include massage, joint mobilizations, stretching, deep tissue mobilization and functional mobilizations.Physical Therapists also use many different modalities, such as ultrasound, interferential stimulation, iontophoresis, cold laser, biofeedback, Game Ready cold compression, mechanical traction, hot packs and ice.
Why is Physical Therapy a good choice?
More than half of all Americans are suffering from pain. Whether it is acute pain or chronic pain, there’s a ton of evidence showing that pain in America is a widespread problem that commonly results in sick days from work, and can be a precursor to opioid use and dependency. However, many do not even know that Physical Therapists are well equipped to not only manage pain but also find its source.
Physical Therapists are experts at treating movement and neuro-musculoskeletal disorders. Pain often accompanies a movement disorder, and Physical Therapists can help correct the disorder and relieve the pain.
Why should I choose a private practice Physical Therapist?
Would you prefer treatment from a Physical Therapist (PT) who works for a physician or one that owns a private practice? We leave it up to you to draw your own conclusions but here are some facts from three different studies:
Results indicate there were more treatments, and the cost was greater for those patients that attended a physician-owned Physical Therapy practice vs. private physical therapy practice (visits per patient were 39% to 45% higher in physician-owned clinics; and both gross and net revenue per patient were 30% to 40% higher in physician-owned clinics).
Results indicate that licensed and non-licensed Physical Therapy providers spent less time with each patient in physician-owned clinics, and more often, Physical Therapy Assistants were substituted for Physical Therapists.
Results concluded that “Therapists who had treated patients through Direct Access were significantly more likely to believe that Direct Access had benefited them professionally and benefited their patients than were Therapists who had not practiced through Direct Access.”
As Professionals, we believe we can provide you with the highest quality of care available and do it in a cost-effective manner. You will work closely with your Physical Therapist and your treatment will be managed by the same Physical Therapist from the beginning to the end of your experience with us.

Is Physical Therapy painful?
For many patients, one of the primary objectives is pain relief. This is frequently accomplished with hands-on techniques and modalities such as ultrasound, electrical stimulation, and/or heat or cold therapy. Movement often provides pain relief as well. Your Physical Therapist will provide you with the appropriate exercises not only for pain relief, but to recover range of motion, strength, and endurance.
In some cases, Physical Therapy techniques can be painful. For example, recovering knee range of motion after total knee replacement, or shoulder range of motion after shoulder surgery, may be painful. Your Physical Therapist will utilize a variety of techniques to help maximize your treatment goals. It is important that you communicate the intensity, frequency, and duration of pain to your Therapist. Without this information, it is difficult for the Physical Therapist to adjust your treatment plan.
Can my Physical Therapist provide me with a diagnosis?
In most states, physical therapists cannot make a medical diagnosis. This is something that your physician will provide for you. While physical therapists are important members of your medical team, physicians are typically the healthcare providers that will provide you with a medical diagnosis.
Is my Physical Therapist licensed?
Physical Therapists (PTs) and Physical Therapist Assistants (PTAs) are licensed by their respective states.
Are services available for those who don't speak English?
Yes, we have a physical therapist that is fluent in Mandarin
