Who we are
What you can expect
No Prescription Needed
At Priority Physical Therapy, we are putting you at the center of our treatments. We want to make your physical therapy experience both beneficial and efficient. Every patient has their own goals and objectives in mind when they decide to come to physical therapy and at Priority, we put those goals at the forefront of our treatment plans. We are putting the focus on the patient, and this allows us to make our sessions meaningful and successful. We set our standards high and are constantly working toward clinical excellence, efficient treatments, and putting your needs first.
Not only do we want to decrease your pain and improve your function, but we want to make your future a better one. Through education and preventative therapy, we can help decrease your risk of future injuries.
We want to change the old view of physical therapy being painful and hard work. We want you to leave Priority having a positive and meaningful mindset. We want you to believe in physical therapy the way we do.
