Pursue Physical Therapy is an ideal partner to get you out of pain and back to optimal health and performance.
We offer a unique combination of excellent customer service, highly trained therapists, innovative, evidence-based practice and a comfortable, well-equipped and convenient facility.
You will be treated by the same therapist each visit. You will receive hands-on manual therapy. You will perform exercises that are functional, fun and exactly what you need. Patients are scheduled so that you have plenty of one-on-one time with your therapist. There are no aides or support staff supervising your treatment, only the therapist.
What is Physical Therapy?
It all starts with an evaluation. During your first visit, your Therapist spends approximately one hour, interviewing you, establishing goals, testing and examining your condition and setting up a treatment plan. The therapist teaches you about your condition and reassures you about what to expect in the recovery process. Some form of treatment is always included in the first visit.
Subsequent treatment sessions systematically fix the injury, movement disorder and/or pain. The key tool of the therapist is his/her hands-on techniques to stretch and mobilize stiff, misaligned and restricted areas of your body. Once mobility is improved, then exercises are used to restore strength, balance and function. Injured athletes looking to return to sports do sports specific training under the watchful eye of the therapist.
What is Manual Therapy?
Manual therapy is a collection of techniques in which the PT uses their hands to skillfully mobilize joints and soft tissues. These techniques may be used to alleviate pain, improve mobility, induce relaxation, reduce swelling and improve musculoskeletal function. The use of manual therapy is considered by many PTs to be an important component of evaluation and treatment of spinal disorders.
Who are Physical Therapists?

It is among the fastest growing professions because of the value PTs provide for our increasingly active society. All PTs are graduates of accredited university programs and licensed by the state in which they work.
