About Us

Vision Statement

We are a team of functional therapists and clinicians committed to helping our patients rediscover their inner athlete. We believe how we show up for our family, our friends, our work, and the community around us is a direct reflection of how we care for our physical bodies.  Our goal is to make sure that you show up as your best self.

With our holistic and intentional approach to physical therapy – caring for both the mind and body – our goal is to help you improve your quality of life for the long haul – so that you are free to chase your dreams.  

Mission Statement

At Physio, we do not chase pain, we chase your aspirations.  We see you as a person, an athlete in the making, not a patient.  Through purposeful, intentional practices, we get your body to the highest level of functioning so you can achieve your personal and physical goals.

Our Values

Patient Centric Care

Every one of our patients has a story – has a dream – of something they want to achieve. At Physio, you are not a number, you are our mission, and we see and embrace the inner athlete within you.  Whether your dream is to walk your daughter down the aisle this year or PR in your next triathlon, our therapists ensure your care plan is both effective and efficient, so you see and feel your progress with each visit.

Empathy

We embrace empathy as the cornerstone of our patient-centered approach. Our commitment to empathy fuels our mission to provide exceptional care that transcends physical healing. We believe in truly understanding our patients' unique challenges, pain, and aspirations, allowing us to connect on a profound level. Through active listening, genuine compassion, and a deep respect for individual experiences, we create a safe and supportive environment where every patient and their family feels valued and understood.

Thoughtful, Critical Exploration

We go beyond just surface level pain management in our PT clinical care.  We view pain as just one signal of what is happening within the body’s eco-system. We take a multidimensional and holistic care approach in our practice – from nutrition, to sleep, to understanding work-life stressors – we will work alongside you to ensure we safely treat and mitigate the root cause of your pain, not just the symptom itself.

Growth

For both the patient and our practice – our clinicians are constantly searching for and embracing new, innovative holistic care strategies and technology so that our therapy practices continuously evolve and adapt to the needs of the families we serve – not just for today – but for years to come.

Longevity

Our team understands that promoting and ensuring the longevity of our patients' lives goes beyond extending years; it encompasses enhancing the quality of those years, embracing the principles of holistic well-being.  We take an individual approach to support the vitality and quality of life for our patients and ensure that care plans are sustainable.  By understanding your medical, personal, and professional needs, we can maximize the effectiveness of treatments and improve the likelihood of sustained well-being.

Our work is best displayed by your results

Every one of our patients has a story – has a dream – of something they want to achieve. We are thankful to help them (and you) continue doing the things they love!
