Services Available at Mathis Physical Therapy
It is our goal to provide quality care with an emphasis towards individual, personalized service. Rest assured, our highly-trained staff is constantly learning, applying, and practicing the most modern and successful methods in the physical therapy field.
Broadly, physical therapy involves the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of “movement dysfunctions”. PT’s examine patients and develop treatment plans that promote mobility, pain reduction, functional restoration, and disability prevention. In addition, PT’s work with individuals to prevent the loss of mobility before it occurs by developing fitness and wellness oriented programs for healthier and more active lifestyles. All PT’s must receive a graduate degree from an accredited physical therapist program before taking the national licensure examination that allows them to practice physical therapy. The majority of programs now offer the doctor of physical therapy (DPT) degree. Only a Licensed Physical Therapist can offer you “Physical Therapy” services.

This will allow your therapist to begin learning about you, your ailment, injury, your physical therapy goals, and develop a customized plan of care. Follow-up appointments typically last 45-60 minutes.
Dress comfortably. During your physical therapy sessions, it is important to have access to the injured area for effective treatments and we may request that you put on a t-shirt or shorts that we will have available.
