What is physical therapy?
Physical therapy uses hands-on techniques, innovative tools, and personalized exercise plans to help you move and function better.
The FIX Medical Group’s physical therapy team gives you the support and tools you need to independently care for your own health. The multispecialty team works together when designing care plans so that you get the best possible outcomes.
When do I need physical therapy?
You often need physical therapy when you’re struggling with health conditions that affect your mobility or ability to manage your day-to-day functions. The health problems that benefit from physical therapy include:
- Sports injuries
- Recovery from surgery
- Chronic back or neck pain
- Joint pain
Pain isn’t normal — it isn’t something you should have to deal with or learn to accept. FIX Medical Group’s physical therapists specialize in injuries and pain conditions, creating plans that relieve your pain and improve your quality of life.
Whether your pain is caused by a recent injury or something you’ve been dealing with for years, the FIX Medical Group team can help.

How does physical therapy work?
Physical therapy uses many tools and techniques to improve your body’s mobility and function. Some of the treatments the FIX Medical Group team uses include:
Manual therapy includes the hands-on techniques physical therapists use to reduce pain and improve range of motion. Manual therapy includes massage, stretching, and strengthening exercises.
Home exercise program
To maintain the gains you make during in-office physical therapy, the team gives you a home exercise program to do in-between visits.
Your physical therapy can include laser therapy. The K-Laser is a high-powered laser tool that activates cellular activity to support the healing of injured or damaged tissue.
For patients with trigger points (muscle knots), the physical therapists can use dry needling to release the knot, reducing their pain and improving their range of motion.
Before making any treatment recommendations, your FIX Medical Group’s physical therapist does an initial assessment, evaluating your strengths and limitations and determining your goals. They use this information to create your personalized physical therapy plan.
