A holistic approach to injury prevention and performance enhancement
An open, inviting and down-to-earth environment that supports people in the journey back to full functional movement. Rather than isolating individual joints or muscles, our treatment plans cover the body as a whole to help you overcome limitations and recover from injury.
Finish Line Physical Therapy is a private, outpatient clinic that utilizes a personal, functional approach to rehabilitation, injury prevention and performance enhancement. Our goal is to evaluate and treat the entire body as a functional whole — a fresh alternative to conventional methods of physical therapy that generally isolate individual joints or body parts.
Finish Line PT doesn’t look, act or feel like your typical physical therapy office. You’ll notice the difference as soon as you walk in the door.
We’ve created an open, inviting and down-to-earth environment that supports people throughout the journey from injury back to full functional movement. We’re a community of like-minded, goal-oriented athletes ourselves, and we believe recovery works best when patients feel comfortable and cared for. We provide extensive one-to-one patient to therapist interaction in both assessing your unique condition and building a customized functional rehabilitation program.
First Visit: Evaluation
The Finish Line experience starts with a comprehensive, 45-minute three-dimensional evaluation that includes both a review of your medical history as well as an objective functional assessment of your current condition.
Make sure to wear comfortable gym clothes. You won’t be sitting still for long! Shorts and a t-shirt, for example, will allow your physical therapist to perform their evaluation most optimally (we have extras if you forget). If you are an endurance athlete, bring your running shoes for accurate inspection and for running gait analysis.
- We’ll take you through a series of tests and exercises to help determine the root cause of your specific condition:
- A subjective history: Why are you here? What is causing your pain or limitation?
- 3D functional assessment using various balance-reach and excursion tests: How does your body move through all three planes of functional movement?
- Fitness and gait analysis using Optojump
Following the evaluation, we’ll review your goals, discuss a treatment plan and devise an individualized home-exercise program based on our findings.
Follow-Up Visits: Treatment
Follow-up appointments are 45 minutes, one-on-one with the physical therapist, and are structured around a functional, biomechanical approach that utilizes the most current research in rehabilitation. We don’t treat symptoms, and we don’t have a formula for treatment. Instead we use various forms of functional manual therapies and 3D exercises to help you build strength, flexibility and balance.
We’ll discuss your progress and how you feel your body is responding in the midst of the normal, daily activities you engage in. We’re constantly evaluating, tweaking and treating to help you recover as quickly as possible.
As a heads up, there’s a chance you might perspire during your treatments. We have shower facilities available if needed after sessions.
