Why Active Physical Therapy?

We started Active Physical Therapy for one reason — PATIENT CARE.

That may seem obvious to most, but not everyone shares the same values. One local hospital via their orientation manual lists their “top customers” and guess who was #1?

Physicians! “Because without them, we don’t have patients”

Does that sound backwards? Well, at Active Physical Therapy we will always put patients first. We don’t believe in a “system” that sees physicians as first.

Look at the “patient” in the graphic below (left side). You are important in the beginning, but soon lost in the numerous system steps. Hospitals and other medical facilities have their place, but more services rarely mean better care.

Our Referral Program

You can now refer yourself with direct access! This means you can access a physical therapist without a doctor’s referral. Your insurance will still pay for your physical therapy and you can save money by referring yourself to physical therapy. Physical therapists are experts in addressing musculoskeletal conditions.

At Active Physical Therapy we value quality and consistent care. We often describe ourselves as a “mom and pop shop,” which was our vision from the start. As a small business, we truly appreciate the close relationships we build with our patients. So, any recommendations from our current and former patients are greatly appreciated.
