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!


So You've Decided To Start Exercising... Now What?

You’re here because you want to take the plunge and get yourself in shape by starting an exercise program.  Great!  Now, what do you do first?

Believe it or not, at this point, a lot of people get stuck and never move forward to starting actual exercise.  That is the reason why I am writing this article.  I cannot tell you how many folks have admitted to me that they have always wanted to start exercising, but they simply do not know how to start.  So here are the steps I recommend you take:

1. Consult your physician.

2. Move it!

3. Do some strength training too!

For general strengthening of the back, particularly the postural muscles, try this:

One of the advantages of the simplistic approach is that for most people, it is doable.  This doesn’t mean you will not advance to more complicated and challenging exercises, but it is a reasonable jump off point that should not be intimidating or take a huge amount of time. 

So, no excuses!  Make a commitment to add years to your life and feel better everyday!
