At Thrive Physical Therapy, we focus on treating the whole body. Our distinction is being high-touch and low-tech: We use our hands, ears, eyes, brains and words to present you with a unique blend of skilled hands-on manual therapy combined with neuromuscular re-education. We specialize in movement re-training, including the use of Pilates techniques as well as principles gleaned from yoga and other movement practices. We get more high-tech when it comes to the systems and flow of our practice. We document, bill, monitor outcomes and maintain compliance via electronic medical records. The result? You’ll feel completely at ease and cared for while in our office. Let us take care of the rest. Specifically, your customized treatment plan may include one or more of the following:

Our Approach

  • A whole body approach We consider your medical and surgical histories, significant life changes, body type, posture, hobbies and lifestyle to formulate a unique, individualized treatment plan. We assess and treat the whole body –including where the pain is localized and other areas that may be compounding the issue – allowing us to incorporate a diverse set of treatment strategies that facilitates healing across your entire body.
  • Services designed in your best interest You’ll receive personalized attention from scheduling your first session until you are discharged. Each treatment session is one-on-one, guided by a licensed physical therapist, never by an aide or un-licensed personnel.
  • The spirit of collaboration We encourage open communication and create the space to listen and respond to your feedback. By communicating with other members of your health care team – from primary care providers to acupuncturists and chiropractors – we ensure that we are all working collaboratively toward the most successful outcome.
  • Continuing education Access Thrive’s electronic home exercise programs with videos of exercises from your personal desktop, laptop, tablet or smart phone to keep your progress moving forward.
  • Your bottom line is our bottom line We have 100% transparency with our patients so you know upfront what your out-of-pocket costs will be. Prior to your first visit, we’ll check your benefits so that we can provide you with an 'estimate' of what each visit will cost. Most clinics see the patient and then bill at the end, resulting in bills that can escalate into the thousands of dollars instead of maximizing each of your visits with your outcome in mind.
