About the Clinic
If you live in the Spokane area and are in pain, recovering from an injury or surgery, or just want to improve your health and performance and prevent future medical problems, we’re here to help you. Our experienced and caring physical therapists have specialty certification in orthopedic manual therapy. This allows them to more accurately diagnose and treat all of your musculoskeletal issues and get you feeling better faster. Our goal is to enhance your function so you can experience the best physical health life can offer.
We opened our physical therapist-owned private practice in the summer of 2011. We are conveniently located across from the WSU/EWU Riverpoint campus just east of downtown, with easy access from North Spokane, South Hill, Spokane Valley, and I-90 via the Hamilton St. exit and have free on-site parking.
Following a detailed interview and examination, we will create a treatment plan specifically tailored to meet your needs and goals. Our one-on-one treatment approach emphasizes hands-on cutting edge manual therapy, prescriptive exercise, and neuromuscular retraining techniques not widely available in Spokane. We look at you as a whole person and strive to get at the root of your problems, creating lasting improvements in your function verses temporary symptom management. Our integrated approach has empowered literally hundreds of people to take an active role in their health, feel better and lead fuller lives using conservative and non-invasive means, often even when previous treatment approaches have been unsuccessful.
