About Us

Personalized Care from Our Team

No two individuals are alike, and neither are their injuries, even if they involve the same body part. Our experienced team will assess your specific condition and develop a customized treatment plan to help you regain your optimal health. With personalized attention and unwavering dedication, our staff will support you through every step of your recovery journey.

Our Proven 4-Phase Recovery Program

Dealing with pain can be overwhelming and leave you feeling uncertain about where to turn for relief.

We’ll equip you with practical resources, including exercises and pain management tips, to ensure continued progress even after your clinic visits. Most of our patients experience significant pain reduction within just six visits.

While alleviating pain is crucial, maintaining motivation post-relief can be challenging. Once your pain subsides, it’s easy to feel stuck and unsure how to continue progressing. In Phase II, we focus on helping you regain mobility, flexibility, and strength, setting you up for ongoing success. Our support will prime you for future performance and aid in preventing further injuries.

Being sidelined by an injury can be incredibly frustrating, especially when you’re eager to return to your usual activities. Watching others move forward while you’re on the sidelines is tough.

With personalized treatment plans and our team’s expertise, you’ll be back to feeling like yourself in no time.

Do I need a referral from my doctor before attending Physical Therapy?

Physical therapists in NC can see patients for 10 visits or 45 days, whichever comes first without a doctor’s referral.

What do I need to wear or bring with me?

You should dress in comfortable, loose clothing that allows you to move easily and doesn’t restrict circulation.

You should also bring any paperwork related to your medical history, including x-rays, ultrasounds, and doctor’s notes.

Is there anything I can do before my appointment to prepare?

Yes! Make sure you arrive for your session well-rested so that you can give it your full attention and energy.

Your physical therapist should be available to answer any questions or concerns you may have about your treatment plan before and after each visit. You can also contact the clinic directly for further assistance. We want you to get the most out of every session!

Will insurance cover my physical therapy?

It depends on your insurance plan. Most plans cover some or all of the costs associated with physical therapy, but you should check with your provider to determine coverage and any associated fees.

How often will I need to attend physical therapy sessions?

How will I know when I no longer need physical therapy?
