When you first visit our clinic, we’ll have you complete a detailed medical history so we can start with a comprehensive understanding of your overall physical health.

Your Licensed Physical Therapist
Your Soma PT and Rehab physical therapist will apply research and gentle, proven techniques to help you get back in motion. Your treatment may include hands-on therapy, neuromuscular training, and specific weight-bearing, balance, and mobility exercises. The goal of your treatment is to help improve or restore the mobility you need to move forward with your life.
In order to practice, your physical therapist must have a graduate or clinical doctoral degree in physical therapy, and to pass national and state licensure exams. Your Soma PT and Rehab physical therapist will have this plus other recognized credentials or accreditations, and a minimum of ten years’ experience in the field.
Physical therapy can sometimes provide an alternative to surgery or traditional orthopedic care. Alternatively, if you’re searching for treatment to supplement or replace pain medication, physical therapy can also sometimes be the answer. Your course of treatment will be based on the condition of your overall health, the status of your specific condition, and the recommendations of your other doctors.
