Who We Are:

Premier Physical Therapy is 100% physical therapy owned and operated. Sports medicine and orthopedic physical therapy are the backbone of Premier’s core competencies. Our facility is staffed by licensed physical therapists committed to helping patients reduce pain, restore strength, regain daily activities, and improve function and range of motion while achieving the highest degree of functional independence possible.

Premier Physical Therapy is dedicated to diagnosing and providing conservative treatment and rehabilitation for musculoskeletal and neurologic disorders. Our scope of practice is to promote optimal human health and function through the application of physical agents (heat, electric stimulation, ice, ultrasound, laser), manual techniques (massage, myofascial release, joint mobilization), and therapeutic exercise protocols along with patient and family education.

Once referred to Premier Physical Therapy, a comprehensive examination will take place by one of our highly trained licensed professionals. A complete rehabilitation protocol will then be tailored and implemented to meet specific needs of the patient. Throughout the rehabilitation process each patient will be regularly re-assessed and the treatment program will be adjusted accordingly. Each patient will learn to focus their thinking on health and wellness as well as injury prevention thus allowing them to resume vocational and daily activities.

Our staff utilizes a compassionate and personal approach to treatment achieving better and faster results for our patients. Many physicians and patients are choosing Premier Physical Therapy as their first choice for effective physical therapy and rehabilitation.
