Physical Therapy

Foothills Physical Therapy Specialties

Whether you’re an injured athlete, a secretary with aches and pains, a young child with a developmental delay, or a firefighter who has been injured on the job—physical therapy is meant to get you back on the field, back on the job, and back doing the things that you enjoy.

As integral members of the health care team, physical therapists evaluate and treat individuals with a wide variety of medical conditions that impact their ability to move and perform functional activities. With their education based largely on the science of movement, physical therapists are experts in movement dysfunction and injury prevention. They work to restore optimal physical function and wellness.

Here at Foothills, we believe there is no “one-size-fits-all” approach to healing. That’s why we implement a hands-on, individualized approach to your evaluation and treatment. With your specific needs in mind, we can restore movement, improve function, and help you to get back to doing what you enjoy.

What We Offer

There are hundreds of conditions that can be treated by a physical therapist. For more in-depth information about what we offer, you can find a complete list of our services in the Resource Center.


Pre and Post Surgical Rehabilitation

We work closely with your surgeon to manage your pre/post-operative care. Surgery is expensive; therefore, your pre-operative and post-operative physical therapy should be performed by PT's with extensive background in treating patients before and after surgery and with knowledge of your physicians' preferences and protocols.
