At Bellevue Physical Therapy, your Physical Therapist will create an individual therapy program that is specifically developed for you based on a complete evaluation of your condition. Our rehabilitation philosophy is to promote healing through a combination of exercise and manual therapy, as well as to educate our patients in injury prevention, body mechanics and self-help techniques. We aim to provide you with the best physical therapy experience in Bellevue.
We work with each individual patient and their physicians to design a treatment program that fits their lifestyle to ensure that our patients have the best possible outcome. The ultimate goal is for you to return to normal activities of daily living, work and participation in sports or recreational activities. Our treatment approach first focuses on decreasing pain, edema and muscle guarding to improve joint motion.
As you improve, your exercise program will progress to fit your needs for coordination, balance, endurance and strength training. You can expect your physical therapy experience to be unique, one on one and allow you to meet your individual goals. We are able to assist you with transitioning from exercise for rehabilitation to exercise for health maintenance, cardiovascular improvement, return to work and/or enhanced athletic performance.

- Testimonials -
Great program and wonderful staff. I would highly recommend to others.
The staff was very kind and always cheerful. I will miss them all when I go back to Spokane, they were all great to me.
I owe a great big portion of my sanity since starting treatment in 2008 to Cindy Campbell, LMP. She has worked with me through a car accident injury as well as two pregnancies and several surgeries and I know I wouldn't be feeling as well as I do without her. She is absolutely wonderful. I can't thank her enough.
Could not be more satisfied with care and treatment I've recieved over the years. Jeff Carlson, A+++
