Peak Performance Physical Therapy
Improve Mobility and Motion
• Physical therapists are experts in developing pain free mobility to facilitate quality of life, your ability to earn a living, and participation in leisurely activities.
• Movement is essential to promote physical independence and reduce fall risk.
• Studies show that physical activity can help prevent diabetes, which accounts for 18% of U.S. adult deaths and reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke, fractures, and arthritis.
• While surgery and medications are often warranted for certain diagnoses, there is increasing evidence that conservative treatment through physical therapy can be as effective and less costly for many conditions.
At Peak Performance Physical Therapy, we pride ourselves on our personalized care. Each patient receives up to one hour of treatment at each visit. All treatments are performed by licensed physical therapists and certified physical therapy assistants. Exercises are supervised to ensure correct technique and to minimize risk of further injury. Each patient is instructed in a home exercise program that complements what is performed in the clinic: responsibility for your own recovery is crucial to maximize your functional potential.
If you are dealing with a recent injury, recovering from surgery or experiencing chronic pain, our team at Peak Performance can help you heal, regain strength, mobility and reduce pain. We provide a patient care experience that promotes healing and recovering in a compassionate environment.
Our goal is to help you feel better physically while making sure you’re comfortable and an active partner throughout your physical therapy treatment. Our experienced clinical team will work diligently to identify the cause of your injury or condition to help you recover and stay healthy.
• Low back pain is a common condition, and there is evidence that physical therapy is a cost effective treatment that avoids expensive medical costs.
• Physical therapy has proven to be effective for meniscal tears, knee osteoarthritis, rotator cuff tears, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, and other conditions.Participate in Your Recovery
• Individualized treatment plans are designed to help patients meet their needs.
• Participating in your own recovery can be empowering.
• Patients often develop ongoing relationships with their physical therapists to maintain optimal movement.
