About Boca Raton Physical Therapy Center


Our Approach to Patient Care

We offer the most effective treatment for back pain, neck pain, headaches, arthritis, sports injuries and post-operative recovery.
The key to effective treatment lies in diagnosis.  When the underlying cause is correctly identified the correct treatment can be determined to reach the desired result.

Boca Raton Physical Therapy Center offers individual assessment through a series of diagnostic steps that include having the patient go through a prescribed series of postures and motions to determine the actual cause of the problem.   Our Physical Therapists do this with every patient to determine the real cause of their pain.  An individual therapy program is then designed to correct the condition.  In just a few sessions the patient will learn how to keep that condition from recurring, or how to use self-treatment if it does.

We provide the guidance and nurturing that our patients need to fully understand the reasons why they are having pain, stiffness and discomfort.  We teach patients how to help themselves by self-administering their own treatment to alleviate their conditions when they occur so that they do not have to rely on expensive medications to mask the pain.
