Function Better Physical Therapy is a privately-run outpatient orthopedic practice with a mission to provide the most skilled and compassionate care for our patients. Our clinicians utilize a hands-on, evidence-based treatment approach that focuses on helping you, as a whole, not just your condition. During your initial visit, you are taken through a comprehensive evaluation of up to 60 minutes. From there, a specific treatment program is created that is designed to help you feel better and start the process of restoring you back to full function. Our treatment plans are specific and individualized to your needs so that you can be safely progressed under a skilled clinician’s supervision. Since the majority of you will arrive with a goal of returning to work, home activities or recreational activities without any limitations as soon as possible, we like to incorporate functional strengthening within our treatments, with less focus on machines, to accelerate this process. We value your time and in order to provide you with the best care in the area, we pride ourselves on offering one-on-one care, as often as possible, in a fun and genuine atmosphere for each and every one of you. We understand that no 2 people are completely alike and therefore a great deal of time will be spent educating you about your condition and the risk factors that will affect your recovery. The ultimate goal upon discharge is that you have not only learned how to independently manage your condition going forward, but that you have also adopted a healthier and more productive lifestyle in the process because “When you feel better, you Function Better.”
