Performance Physical Therapy

I was treated for my neck and shoulders, primarily by Jennifer. I also saw a few other therapists, but not once did I have to repeat my story. The environment of PPT and the friendliness of all the staff made my visits enjoyable! I can’t believe how pain free I am! I’ve been to other therapy places; PPT is TOPS!

Always helpful professional knowledgeable. Just an all out great experience.

Before coming to PPT I saw another physical therapist about hip pain. After seven weeks there wasn’t any improvement. A friend recommended PPT and the results were phenomenal! Sean thoroughly tested my range of motion and prescribed several stretching and strengthening exercises. He progressed these weekly. He re-tested my ROM after six weeks and the improvements were remarkable. Plus the pain was gone! Sean will be my PT for life!

From the start of my PT everyone I encountered was very friendly and pleasant. I was impressed with the interaction between staff and how knowledgeable Taylor (PT) as well as the techs were when I asked questions. I would recommend this office!!!

I came to Performance Physical Therapy several years ago because I had heard good things about them, having been disappointed in other PT practices I had used over the years. Most recently, the last two sets of therapy have been with Jordan Morris, who is an outstanding diagnostician and therapist. He carefully evaluated my aches and pains and the exercises he used and therapies he applied succeeded in vastly improving my strength and flexibility. I would most definitely work with him again if I have any other issues. He is an asset to the practice.

Knowledgeable, friendly, and great staff well organized.

Highly Recommend! I was extremely impressed w/the quality of care I received. The Physical therapist, Sam Bachman, had her Doctorate in Physical Therapy - was up to date on the latest treatments and had me 100% for a shoulder issue in just a few short weeks, after months of pain. I would definatly go back to PPT for any future needs!


Dangers of Prolonged Sitting

Dangers of Prolonged Sitting

by Stephen V. Rapposelli, PT, OCS

Dangers of Prolonged SittingAccording to the article “Stand Up for Your Health” by the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center,, sitting for prolonged periods of time is linked to many health problems. Sitting for 6-8 hours a day can lead to increased rates in cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and even higher mortality rates! Some studies show that exercise will not eliminate the negative effects of sitting; so it is VERY important to make sure you keep moving throughout your day. Here are some suggestions to decrease your time sitting each day at the office or home:

1) Stand and walk around the office as much as you can. If you need a reminder, set an alarm on your smart phone to remind you. Try downloading apps to track your steps each day such as Pedometer for M7 – Steps.

2) If you do not have a smart phone, try purchasing a FitBit band. FitBit can track your steps each day as well as distance, calories, and sleep quality.

3) Try a standing desk. Standing desks will keep your core and back muscles engaged throughout the day and improve your posture.

4) Be active during your lunch break. Stand while eating, stretch, and take longer walks around the office or outside.

5) Stand while talking on the phone. As an added bonus, your voice will sound better!

6) Walk to co-workers offices instead of emailing or calling them.

7) Clean your office more frequently. This will give you an excuse to move around.

8) Stand while watching TV or at least during commercials.

9) Time how long you are sitting and try to lower that time each day. If you are unable to take longer than 5 to 10 minute breaks, 1 to 2 minute spurts of movement or exercise can still decrease your chances of health problems. Theses short spurts of movement will keep the blood flowing (decrease chances of blood clots), as well as minimize insulin resistance and help with weight gain.
