Private Rooms

Typically, physical therapy clinics have a small functional area for treatments, with few or no private rooms.  At the Wellness Institute, we have eight private rooms to ensure modesty of our patients. Our facility is 7,400 square feet total, so you are ensured privacy with 4,000 square feet of rehabilitation space. You will not feel crammed when receiving treatment at the Wellness Institute.

Personal Attention

Our patients report to us that one of the biggest differences between us and the competition is personal attention. Our patients are not left alone to complete their exercises. Together with the therapists and support staff, we give our patients individual attention. We ensure that they are completing the exercises with the correct mechanics, and answer any questions to make sure our patients’ needs are met.

All Prescriptions Accepted

We respect that your physician may send you to a certain facility, but you have the ultimate choice.  It has been our experience that your physician only wants the best for you. The prescription you get from your doctor can be used at any physical therapist office of your choice. We invite you to stop by and check out our facility. We strive to be the best and most attentive physical therapy facility in our area, and look forward to serving you.

We are dedicated professionals who are passionately committed to providing evidence-based and scientifically sound services to develop, implement, and achieve your lifestyle goals. Our patients’ needs are considered above all else. Our primary concern is how an impairment or limitation is affecting our patients’ lives, and we keep that in mind during both evaluation and treatment. Utilizing the most innovative, safe and effective treatment techniques, we offer complete preventative and rehabilitative programs to return individuals to normal daily life and activities. For those with sports-related issues, we help return them to peak performance, both in recreational and competitive activities.

Our staff consists of highly trained specialists with national certifications by the most widely recognized professional organizations in the country. We specialize in treatments and rehabilitation focusing on orthopedic manual therapy, pelvic floor dysfunction, pain management after spine surgery, joint replacement rehabilitation with a focus on return to sport, sports injury sprains/strains and balance/vestibular rehabilitation. We offer dry needling in conjunction with manual therapy for pain management. To assist in this, we have an indoor half tennis court which serves as high performance floor to help treat patients with the desire to return to an active lifestyle. Ancillary programs include personal training, fitness and yoga programs, and massage therapy.
