Philosophy of Care

Our philosophy of care is to foster patient independence through the use of manual therapies, body mechanics and postural reeducation, gait analysis, biomechanical analysis, therapeutic exercise prescription, and modalities as we deem appropriate and necessary based upon your thorough initial evaluation.

Although other types of practitioners will offer some of these treatments as 'physical therapy', it is important for you to know that physical therapy can only be provided by qualified physical therapists or physical therapist assistants. Physical therapists are experts within the field of movement science, and are extensively trained to evaluate and treat injury or diseases relating to the motion of the human body. The physical therapy staff at Prescription Fitness Physical Therapy and Sports Care possesses the highest level of formal education, Doctor of Physical Therapy, which can be obtained within the field of physical therapy. We are committed to continued provision of the highest level of care through ongoing education on a yearly basis.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide each patient with the highest level of rehabilitative care for musculoskeletal pathology, allowing for the timely return of the injured person or athlete to his or her prior level of functional capacity. We will deliver care using evidence based practices and provide services in the most effacacious, affable, and cost efficient means possible.

We will meet these objectives through continuous self-monitoring provided by patient feedback and satisfaction, rigorous patient education, and successful clinical outcomes.
