At RET, we know that your pain or dysfunction is unique to you. That’s why we get to know your story as soon as you walk through our doors–so we can get busy creating a plan to set you on the path to living a healthy, active life again.
Let our team of therapists get to the root cause of whatever is holding you back.
At RET, our physical therapy is provided by a team of licensed health care professionals.
Physical therapy is a health care specialty that evaluates, diagnoses, and treats injuries, disabilities, and diseases that can limit one's activity levels due to pain and/or loss of function.
When someone suffers loss of function or pain due to disease, injury, or mechanical dysfunction, they often will seek care from a physical therapist. Physical therapy is useful in treating many different medical disorders. Sports, orthopedic, neurologic and muscular conditions, as well as, cardiopulmonary diseases are just a few areas in which our physical therapists treat.
Other beneficiaries of physical therapy include those suffering from a current or past injury, chronic joint or back pain, or recovering from surgery.
During the initial visit, you’ll get a comprehensive evaluation allowing your therapist to determine the nature of your issue. With this knowledge, your therapist can effectively diagnose the root cause of the problem and design a sustainable plan of care.
Treatment may include various therapy techniques, including:
- Manual therapy
- Joint mobilization and manipulation
- Instruction in proper body mechanics and posture
- Functional activities, and exercise
- Modalities such as therapeutic ultrasound, electric stimulation, and the application of hot and/or cold packs.
Physical therapy can result in decreased pain and increased mobility and strength. On a larger scale, patients will find they have increased their independence and, consequently, increased their quality of life.
Aquatic Physical Therapy allows people of all ages and levels of function to reach their goals, and return to what they love to do.
For those with movement difficulties, the buoyancy of the water provides reduced stress on joints and muscles, and is great for post-operative joint replacements. For strengthening and balance, water’s resistance can develop the conditioning necessary to return a seasoned athlete back to their sport. It also gives confidence back to those who want to return to a more active lifestyle.
We use our hands all day, and for all types of activities.

Our specialists offer individualized medical nutrition therapy (MNT) and wellness plans.

The MNT will include ongoing education and support geared towards sustainable changes that allow you to be successful in achieving your targeted results.
