Physical Therapy

Our approach to Physical Therapy is a unique blend of highly effective hands-on techniques to relieve pain, restore motion and enhance personal growth.

 

Physical therapy needs to be a learning experience, not simply an exercise in temporary symptomatic relief. Our holistic hands-on treatments identifies the causes of the pain by treating your whole body. Treating only your symptoms gives only temporary relief.

Traditional physical therapy views pain as a result of weakness. Strengthening exercises are given in an attempt to relieve pain but what is overlooked is the tension in the soft tissue that is pulling your body out of alignment causing pain.  Myofascial restrictions can produce tensile pressures of up to 2,000 pounds per square inch.

Physical therapy at Southwest P.T. is very different. We view your pain as caused by fascial tightness within the body creating pressure on pain sensitive structures. Our goal of treatment is to eliminate the tightness allowing you to move freely without pain.

We are specialized licensed physical therapists with over 35 years of experience in the healing arts. We utilize direct and indirect myofascial release, craniosacral and energy techniques for sports injuries, neurological conditions, balance and vestibular rehabilitation and pediatrics.

We are dedicated to empowering you to achieve and maximize your level of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well being. We combine the art of healing with the science of medicine.
