CONTACT PROFYSIO PHYSICAL THERAPY

Don’t settle for a life with pain and limited function. Since 2013, ProFysio Physical Therapy has established a reputation for excellence by delivering superior clinical outcomes and industry leading customer service for the patients and communities we serve. While many of our competitors like to throw around the term “one on one” but treat three to four patients per hour per therapist - we ARE ACTUALLY ONE ON ONE. Our Doctors of Physical Therapy and Physical Therapist Assistants treat two patients per hour so that you can have proper guidance, supervision, and hands on treatment to achieve your goals. Our commitment to serve you is our top priority.

Want to walk or stand but pain stops you? Want to run but you don’t have strength? Are you scared to lift because you might throw out your back? Does chronic pain consume your life? Have you been told you need Physical Therapy but you don’t know who to trust? No matter what the limitation is or what your goals are, we’re here for you. Call today and get on the road to recovery.
