Our mission within Lake Ridge Physical Therapy Clinics is to return our patients back to their full functional level as quickly and efficient as we can and also giving them education on how to maintain this level and avoid future injuries.
Our clinics are unique in that we have multiple therapists who treat a variety of conditions and have different specialties. Whatever your rehabilitation needs might be, we have someone here who specializes in that aspect and can help you get back to living your life the way you want. The clinic atmosphere is also very welcoming, former patients come in to participate in our wellness programs to maintain good health and stay pain free. It is motivating to see those past patients still coming in and exercising on their own time. Also, our patient care team is top notch and takes pride in making sure they help you with every need you have.
What We Offer:
Goal specific one on one physical therapy to include manual therapy, dry needling, functional exercises, and high tech modalities to help you achieve your goals.
