About

At The Recovery Room, our mission is to help our clients MOVE better, PERFORM better, and EXCEL at every physical endeavor. By tapping into the body’s innate capacity for self-healing and balance our personalized therapy will promote vigor, athleticism, and optimal health.

The Recovery Room was founded by two doctors of physical therapy who feel the practice of physical therapy is being dictated by insurance guidelines and isolated physician diagnosis, rather than focusing on full body movement and impairments. We feel that physical therapy should enhance overall function, and treatment must incorporate the whole body, not just the injury. The Recovery Room is a place for motivated clients to receive a holistic and individualized approach to rehabilitation, prevention, and performance enhancement.
