Respected Relationship

We value our partnership with you

As a medical specialist who refers patients to physical therapy, you should have certain expectations about their care and outcomes. As you consider your referral, you should understand that physical therapists are not a homogenous group; all physical therapists are not created equal, just like all medical professionals in the same specialty are not created equal. With that in mind, you and your patients should have the following physical therapy expectation:

  1. Personalized Care. Every Visit.
  2. Experts in the Field
  3. One on One Treatment
  4. Convenient Appointment Times
  5. Complete Care
PT Expectations

As manual physical therapists, our therapists are some of the most highly educated and trained in the area, including Fellowship Training, the highest level of manual therapy education recognized by the American Physical Therapy Association.

A lesser known, but very effective option of treating TMJ pain, is physical therapy. Most patients with this condition are told that surgery is their only way of getting rid of their pain. While surgery can help in extreme cases, St. Louis Physical Therapy has found that therapy can be a way to avoid surgery and get better at the same time.

Sport Rehab

Our goal is to get the athlete back to their pre injury level of function with their specific athletic event. Our therapists understand athletes specific biomechanical needs for optimal healing.

Balance and Vestibular

A common cause of dizziness and balance problems is from the vestibular system or the inner ear. Vestibular rehabilitation is an exercise program designed to help control symptoms and help individuals who have these disorders remain active and meet daily physical challenges more safely

Kinesio Taping

Clinical evidence of utilizing kinesio tape shows improvements after use with swelling and bruising, muscle facilitation, and bracing excessive joint mobility. Our physical therapists are trained on proper taping techniques, helping to speed up recovery.
