What sets
us apart?

There are many ways we go above and beyond your average Physical Therapy Clinic. Here are just a few. 

1. Sessions are always private, unrushed, and one-on-one.

Unlike a lot of other physical therapy practices where you spend 30 minutes in a noisy, open gym with a distracted therapist, at Foundations, you spend a full hour with your therapist in a private setting, where their entire focus is on you and your goals. 

2. You will never be passed off to someone else. 

Many clinics cut corners by using therapy aides, and inconsistent scheduling can lead to discomfort and stalled progress. Your therapist will always be a qualified Doctor of Physical Therapy, and is consistent from evaluation to the end of your plan of care, ensuring consistent progress, trust, and comfort throughout your care.

3. You'll receive hands-on, holistic assessment and bespoke treatment plan from an expert in orthopedic and pelvic care.

Our expert clinicians have completed residencies and have extensive post-doctoral training in manual orthopedic therapy, pelvic floor rehabilitation, pregnancy and postpartum care. This means that we provide only the highest-quality holistic treatment. Don't settle for "good enough" cookie-cutter treatment plans where you spend hours mindlessly doing exercise; invest in your health with Foundations Physical Therapy.  

4. We'll never force you to give up the activity you love. 

Many of our patients come to us because they are passionate about their sport or hobby. Unlike some clinics that tell you that you will have to give up hope of returning to your sport or exercise, we give you tools and strategies to stay in the game while continuing to improve your pain and other symptoms. Our goal is to keep our runners on the road and our strength athletes in the gym, doing what they love.
