We started Active Physical Therapy for one reason
Our physical therapists are experts at caring for you. We help your recovery by doing what is natural for us and what you should expect!
In our clinic or at your place, let us help you reach your goals with our Performance Optimization Programs.
As a private, locally owned physical therapy clinic, you can expect superior care and outstanding customer service. We’re best known for our patient-centered approach. This means a specialized plan of care for you based on your needs and goals, not what your insurance company dictates or following a cookbook of treatments. We have the time and take the time to listen and help you achieve your goals, whether that is the return to work, sport or play!
The team at Active Physical Therapy has helped me with my healthcare needs. Mandi and Kat give quality, individualized physical therapy care and Elaine gives excellent medical massage therapy. They are all very friendly, knowledgeable professionals and they consistently deliver quality care. I highly recommend them.
In August 2013 I had to have bilateral total knee replacements due to osteoarthritis and many years of wear and tear. Although I was one of many patients being seen at Active PT, I never felt like I did not have the undivided attention of the staff even if the therapy room was quite busy. The staff treated all the patients as people, talking about families, interests, vacations, etc., as we plugged along in our treatment. It is now February 2015 and I am doing great thanks in part to the staff at Active PT! When you find something that works, you stick with it! Thank you for all you did for me!
I’m sure my family and friends were shocked to see how sad I was when my physical therapy ended. It was a rough day for me because, after four months of physical therapy, I came to think of Kevin, Mandi, Kat& Elaine as family. I had a total knee replacement at the end of April 2014 and I owe my successful recovery to APT. Through tough work, constant guidance and support, a few tears (on my part), and celebrated successes I left my last PT session feeling confident on my new knee. I would recommend APT for physical therapy because of the outstanding full-service therapy they provide. It has been six months since my last therapy session and I still stay in touch. Thank you to everyone at APT!
I have three protruding disks in my upper spine due to sports and I have lived in pain every day since high school. I have done regular physical therapy for two years at a different facility and found only minimal relief. I felt I had nowhere to turn other than trying to do surgery and I couldn’t do that. It got to the point where I could not take it any longer and I went back to my doctor. He recommended Active Physical Therapy for dry needling. I was hesitant at first, but after a few treatments, I was already feeling better. I have learned to manage my pain through exercise. There is still progress to be made but I would never be where I am without Active Physical Therapy and their friendly staff.
My primary care physician referred me to see Dr. Mandi Fetters, PT. She specializes in cervical pain treatment using Trigger Point Dry Needling (TDN) treatment coupled with localized massage therapy by Kat, a Licensed Massage Therapist. After 3 treatments, I was relieved of the constant nerve pain and my cervical neck range of motion was improved. Today, after 9 sessions of physical therapy at the Active Physical Therapy Clinic with Dr. Fetters and her team, I am totally free of cervical nerve pain and I have full cervical neck range of motion. My quality of life has been restored and I look forward to a 2016 that will allow me to be more active than ever because of the Active Physical Therapy Clinic team care and treatment. Thank you, again.
From the first day I walked into Active Physical Therapy I felt a part of my treatment plan, guided by a doctor who is knowledgeable of my condition, strengths, and goals. Dr. Mandi has always adjusted my plan based on my abilities and has encouraged me through the ups and downs of my condition. I look forward to my appointments and the team keeps me on my toes with variety, fun and most importantly laughter. Last week I decided I wanted to run a 5K and without missing a beat Dr. Mandi said, “Great, I’ll do it with you!” You’ll never find that level of commitment to patients anywhere else inside Columbus.
I came to Active Physical Therapy with neck and jaw pain that bothered me all day. I would have headaches that made focusing on anything else impossible. After a few sessions of dry needling with Mandi, the headaches went completely away! It’s amazing the night-and-day difference it has been coming to Active PT. Their highly specialized and individualized attention they gave me makes me feel like family there, I would highly recommend the Active PT team!
