You will receive a comprehensive treatment program from us that will be designed to happily return you to your game and maintain great performance.

Driving your SUV….. holding your son in your arms…..walking up the stairs to reach the safety of your apartment……reaching into the cupboard to grab a cup…..these are all ordinary everyday things that we all do. Just picture a back injury that alters your life, back surgery, and chronic back pain that hinders your ability to do these everyday ordinary things that are always taken for granted by us on a daily basis….and that’s where physical therapists say PRESENT – we’re here! Physical therapists help people regain the ability to perform everyday ordinary activities like they used to, following injuries, painful chronic conditions, or recent surgeries.
Southwest Physical Therapy’s main goal is to help you with your spine injuries so you can live a pain-free life that’s active, peaceful & happy. Low back pain is the most common condition for which people seek physical therapy, though each individual experiencing low back pain presents different severity and nature of symptoms. It is for this reason that Southwest Physical Therapy uses an individualized special plan of care for each patient. During the initial evaluation, our physical therapist assesses your spine to determine the reason for your back pain. Based on the diagnosis of these findings, our specialist develops a customized plan to address your deficits and provide modifications to your current functional activities to meet your goals. We even coordinate with your personal medical provider for improved quality of care and to determine when to refer you for further medical management, if necessary. We know just how chronic, debilitating, and frustrating back pain can be. It can also make daily activities such as your work and school difficult to perform.
Evidence proves that Myofascial Release Therapy, in conjunction with building up strength and stability, provides excellent outcomes for you to return to pain- free movement, including lifting, pushing, reaching, pulling, and carrying tasks. Southwest Physical Therapy is here and always helps you understand your back pain and get you back to the activities that are most important to you. We focus on improving deficits such as motion, balance, strength, and flexibility, so people can reach 100% of their prior function.
We work with a wide range of patients – from those who are just trying to get out of bed on their own to professional athletes trying to return to their careers. In reality, most of the patients we help are not professional athletes and don’t expect to do out-of-the-ordinary things with their bodies that most of us only dream about doing. They simply want to just be able to fully return to their normal lives without watching from the sidelines like an outcast. They want to take their children to the park and get back to work full duty so they can put bread on the table for their families. Ain’t nuttin’ wrong wit dat, right? Southwest Physical Therapy works so closely with these individuals that we develop a familial relationship with them and get to know them and their families as well as what every one of their true goals are; we become such a vital part of helping them reach their goals, no matter how “ordinary” those goals may seem. It is oh so very rewarding as a physical therapist to see someone get excited about regaining the ability to reach over their head or about being able to drive their vehicle again with full motion and flexibility and free of pain. Most of us do not get excited about those kinds of simplistic things…. but perhaps we should!
Physical therapy is such an excellent healing way to avoid more expensive and invasive medical procedures as well as recover from those procedures when necessary, without complications nor adverse side effects. Southwest Physical Therapy knows that we found a most rewarding career in a field that is necessary, beneficial, does so much good, and keeps on growing. Helping to make the ordinary, extraordinary is why we love being physical therapists and why we know firsthand what a vital part of any healthcare team we physical therapists are. With our magical Myofascial Release Therapy, we relieve and eliminate back pain, restore function, improve mobility, increase strength and flexibility, and proper alignment. Get in touch with Southwest Physical Therapy right away to treat your back woes, because we facilitate healing BIGTIME and restore efficient movement and pain-free comfort as quickly as possible!
