About Us

Get to know our space and team!

Our space looks different than most physical therapy "clinics" for a reason.  We value your active participation in your treatment and we expect it to look similar to how you train.

How Do We Help You?

Go from having the same aches and pains pop up during every training cycle to being able to push your numbers and keep building strength


Go from needing a 30 minute warm up before feeling ready for the game to having a targeted and efficient warm up that helps you push your numbers


Go from decreasing training mileage due to knee pain to completing races and setting PRs


Here’s the deal, some medical professionals may give you red lights and tell you to stop your sport when pain pops up


But it doesn’t have to be that way!  We can address pains and weaknesses while still training.


If you’re like any of our clients, you may think or have been told that:

  • You just need to rest

  • It will always be a problem

  • Some parts of your training are dangerous


You feel alienated and hopeless


We get it.  We have been there in the past and it’s hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel


What if instead you could focus on your specific needs, decrease aches and pains and still make it to workouts with your friends and teammates?


You’ve tried:

  • More rest

  • Foam Rolling and theragun

  • Getting massages

  • Trying a new way of training


But no matter what, the aches and pain are still there


You’re probably thinking

“What am I missing?” 

“What do I do now?”

“Is it time to move on from this sport?”


We mentioned before that we know you can keep training even while addressing pain.  Even better, you could be working on laying the groundwork for setting a PR while you are decreasing the pain.  


Many times, athletes see medical professionals that do not understand their sport or mode of training.  


This is when blanket statements to “stop that type of training” are thrown around.


Then when athletes do find their way to rehab of some sort, they are usually aggressively under-loaded.  Meaning it’s too easy!  The tissue has to be challenged to adapt.


What if you could work with a medical team who understand and support your goals?

What if you could decrease pain while working towards PRs?

You can, and we can help you do it.


Curious how we do that?  We focus on helping you be Strong. Resilient. Well.


Strong- build the strength to come back from pain or injury

Resilient- continue to make your body more bulletproof and quicker to recover from set-backs; enhance your mindset to understand pain 

Well- focusing on longevity in your sport and in life

Does this sound like the focus you need?  We are here to be your teammates!
