First things first...

Got an injury? Physical Therapy should be your FIRST step!


1. Physical Therapists are leaders in their knowledge of the musculoskeletal system.

Essentially, we’re the equivalent of primary care providers for musculoskeletal injuries (read: muscles, bones, tendons, ligaments). Next to orthopedic surgeons, physical therapists spend more time studying and are more knowledgeable about conditions involving the musculoskeletal system than any other doctor. We know how to identify any red flag symptoms and refer you to the correct provider if needed.


2. Physical Therapy is Direct Access.

You don’t need a referral to come see us. Anybody can walk off the street and come into our office for an assessment. Going directly to the PT saves you an extra trip and extra copay, when in all likelihood you’d be referred to us anyway!



3. Quicker Recovery Time.

The quicker you can be seen and start hands on treatment, the quicker your recovery time will be. No waiting for the next appointment your PCP has available (which, let’s be real, could be weeks), no waiting for unnecessary imaging.



4. Choose a Physical Therapist NOT Physical Therapy.

We go out of our way to choose the BEST surgeon or specialist, so why wouldn’t you do that with your physical therapist? Don’t choose the easiest or most convenient option if it’s not what YOU need. Research your PT just as you would any other doctor! Find what fits you and your goals best.
