Our Belief That All Individuals Have Existing Potential: Where others give up, we dig deeper. Where others look only at the pain, we look at the source. Where others see disability and dysfunction, we see potential for optimal function. Our Physical Therapists are driven by the IPA philosophy that all individuals have existing potential and are charged with unlocking that potential through an advanced manual therapy evaluation and treatment system which views the whole body as a dynamically, interconnected system.

Our Ability to Impart Change: Change and resolution of complex pain or physical limitations can be elusive. We look at the interconnectivity of the entire human system. We evaluate and treat the mechanical limitations of your soft tissues, joints, nerves, and viscera, while facilitating the efficient function of your neuromuscular system. But we don’t stop there. The true change comes when we teach you to own your body and live efficiently through individualized postural and movement training that meets you where you live.

Our Results: Our patients repeatedly experience results not previously achieved through other interventions. Our patients call it the “WOW” factor!! Utilizing a revolutionary and advanced evaluation and treatment system called Functional Manual Therapy™ (FMT); as our foundation; we provide unparalleled treatment results for complex patient issues. Most patients feel a difference after their first visit. Learn more about Our Unique Treatment System: FMT

Our Reputation: We are known worldwide as clinicians who think outside the box, integrating evidence with state of the art skills of clinical reasoning and treatment protocols which promote optimal function.

Each of our Physical Therapists has achieved or is in the process of achieving the distinction of becoming a Certified Functional Manual Therapist (CFMT), one of the most stringent, advanced certification processes within the physical therapy profession.
