Why Preventative Care is for you
Stay healthy while active
Preventative Care and Maintenance are two of the key components to staying healthy while active. Whether you have had an injury in the past or are looking to prevent one from occurring, a proactive visit can reveal the muscle imbalances and poor movement patterns that can lead to pain, injury, or reoccurrence.
Our goal is to help you Move Better, Feel Better, and Perform Better. With our modern approach to physical therapy that is centered around movement and functionality, we want to improve your quality of life as well as your sense of wellbeing.
Preventative Care & Maintenance Sessions
Preventative Care and Maintenance sessions are 45 minutes of true 1-on-1 patient care. These sessions can be tailored to past injury management or injury prevention. A proactive visit with a physical therapist can reveal inefficient movement patterns that may lead to pain, injury or other issues in the future.

Preventative care starts with an initial evaluation of an individual’s musculoskeletal system to identify possible imbalances, weaknesses, or restricted movements that may lead to injuries. Based on the evaluation, the physical therapist creates a personalized treatment plan consisting of exercises, stretches, active recovery, and other therapeutic techniques to address these issues and enhance the body's resilience.

The main goals of preventative physical therapy are to prevent injury, enhance your performance, and improve your overall health. By addressing underlying issues, improving biomechanics, and strengthening weakened areas, this approach helps individuals maintain a higher level of function, prevent future injuries, and potentially avoid or delay the need for more serious treatments.
