What makes SpineScottsdale Physical Therapy different?

We specialize in spine physical therapy

SpineScottsdale is a physical therapist owned and operated physical  therapy clinic that specializes in the assessment, diagnosis, and  treatment of spine physical therapy. In many unspecialized clinics, a general physical therapist will perform an evaluation without utilizing an evidence based assessment. This general physical therapist often will see a variety of problems everyday and has a limited understanding of how to treat specific types of spine problems. At best, a general physical therapist has taken a couple of courses on how to perform therapy on the spine.

Physical therapist owned clinic

SpineScottsdale Physical Therapy is locally owned and operated by a physical therapist who is committed to providing his patients the finest possible rehabilitation by having relaxed, meaningful appointments, strong physical therapist-patient relationships, and a superior level of care and service. Many productivity based physical therapy clinics force the physical therapist to greatly increase their patient volume because insurance companies are reimbursing less. This in turn has resulted in rushed, superficial appointments, weak physical therapist-patient relationships, and a diminished level of care and service. Rather than accept this as the status quo and possibly compromise the patients health, SpineScottsdale Physical Therapy creates an environment where the patient's interests are the only interests we need to consider.
