Who We Are and Our Approach

Our Approach is Patient Centered, Integrated, Holistic and Intelligent, Because Today’s Patients Deserve More.

 

Patient Centered Therapy Is Our Aim:

Renew Physical Therapy’s approach is integrated, holistic, intelligent and patient centered. Our main goal is to awaken your “Inner Healer”. We will provide and teach the patient effective healing tools and exercises so that you can reach goals quickly. We are patient centered and the patient leads the way in their treatments. At Renew PT the patient is the star and our focus is on your needs. We listen deeply to your goals and concerns. Your treatment plan is assessed at each visit so that it remains targeted. We make changes depending on the patient’s feedback and focus on the tools that are giving the patient pain relief and fast results.

Our focus is on patient care. As a team we have weekly Grand Rounds meetings to discuss our patients progress. This is unusual in today’s health care environment. During our Grand Rounds meetings we review each patient to make sure they are succeeding in their therapies. We actually want you to get better faster and focus on intelligent healthcare that provides results. Our approach is refreshing and limits your expenditure and out-of-pocket expense. We teach you how to care for yourself.

Unlike other physical therapy centers we see our patients 1 time per week. Of course, if your condition is acute you may have to come in more often in the beginning. You also have one-on-one time with your physical therapist. We believe that the patient is able to take responsibility for their own healing if taught the right tools, manual techniques and exercises. We don’t hold back on our therapy; we cover many aspects of other integrative therapies so you don’t have to see many other outside practitioners. We are a one-stop healing center and when appropriate we will refer out. We know all our referral sources personally and do not refer out to friends, but we refer out to highly skill practitioners.

Your time with your therapist is one-on–one. You will receive written instructions on your self-care exercises and manual therapies. We are extremely patient centered and on your first visit you will receive a personalized handbook created just for you. It is important to note that we don’t use aides or assistants. All your sessions are conducted in a private spa-like room so the focus is entirely on you. We do not put our patients into a big gym area. We find that type of therapy to be distracting, not only for the patients but for the physical therapist as well. We want you to have a private healing experience that you can feel safe in.

Mind-Body Therapies Are Our Specialties

We treat the mind and the body. We understand that for healing to successful occur, not only does physical body need to be addressed, but also on the spiritual, emotional and psychological bodies as well.

We believe that patients truly heal when the emotional, physical and spiritual components of the condition are addressed. Our team consist of therapist specialized in Reiki therapy, Cranial sacral therapy, spiritual healing and sound healing. With these exceptional modalities we are able to dress the psycho-spiritual causes of your condition and take your healing journey to a higher and more successful level.

Our team is also highly skilled and trained in the areas of manual therapy, exercises prescription, visceral manipulation and pelvic floor rehabilitation. We are primarily manual physiotherapists who integrate hands-on techniques with intelligent exercises, that when combined with mind-body therapies produce profound, pain-relieving and long-term results.

All of our therapists are also well versed in other areas such as yoga, Pilates, reiki, and orthopedics. With highly trained physical therapists like ours, improvements in the quality of life of our patients improves dramatically can be witnesses in our video testimonials.

We Treat Conditions Often Overlooked By Traditional Physical Therapy

We treat many conditions that have been overlooked by traditional physical therapy. Our focus on women’s pelvic health, men’s pelvic health, scar therapy, pregnant women and post-partum women recovering from childbirth. We believe that our focus helps women and men overcome conditions that are not frequently spoken about in society. These conditions include sexual pain, incontinence, symphysis pubic dysfunction, pelvic floor muscle dysfunction, perineal tears, caesarian scars, prostatitis and anal or rectal pain. If you suffer from any of these conditions do not hesitate to reach out to us. We will help you to get back on your feet and you don’t have to suffer alone.
