Why Our Patients Choose Us:
Our Belief In Your Potential
Where others give up, we dig deeper. Where others only see your pain, we look for the source. Where others see disability, we find potential for optimal function. Our Physical Therapists are driven by the philosophy that all individuals can improve and are charged with unlocking your potential through an assessment and manual therapy treatment system that views your entire body as an interconnected system.
Our Ability To Help
Change and resolution of pain or physical limitations can be elusive. In order to give you the best chance for a full recovery, we evaluate you from “head to toe” to identify hidden causes of your pain or injury. We examine and treat the limitations of your soft tissues, joints, and nerves, while changing your muscle firing patterns and posture for lasting results.
Our patients repeatedly experience results not previously achieved through other approaches. Our patients often say, “I can’t believe the difference” or, “I’ve never had such a thorough evaluation”. We utilize an advanced evaluation and treatment system to provide unparalleled treatment results. Most patients feel a difference after their first one to two visits at Specht Physical Therapy.

We Get to the Root Cause
If you are suffering from an injury, pain, or a loss of function, we are here to help! The first step in getting you on the road to recovery is to find the root cause of your problem.
Finding the root cause requires a comprehensive evaluation, this is why we use the Selected Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA). The SFMA is a whole-body evaluation system designed to find the specific factors that are contributing to the issue that brought you to therapy.
Research has shown that painful conditions often result from tightness, weakness, and imbalances near the region that hurts, this concept is called ‘regional interdependence’. One example of this is low back pain, which is frequently caused by stiffness in the hips. Treating the back may reduce pain, but the problem will return if hip tightness isn’t addressed!
By using the SFMA along with other evaluation methods, we identify what needs to be fixed to get you better, faster.
Feel Better. Perform Better. Keep Moving.
