What We Provide
At PPPT, we provide evidence-based, patient centered care to return you to work or play as quickly and cost-effectively as possible. Our team has advanced training and is constantly working to stay up to date with the latest research and techniques in order to provide the very best care possible. Upon your initial evaluation, a thorough exam will be performed in order to identify the underlying condition responsible for your symptoms. We want to treat the problem and not provide a "band aide" for your symptoms. Once your underlying condition is identified, we will establish a complete treatment plan as well as a home exercise program. Your participation is essential to the process. At your subsequent visits, you will always receive one on one manual hands-on care by a licensed physical therapist. Our goal is to return you to your normal lifestyle as quickly as possible
