Why Direct Performance?

Direct Performance Physical Therapy assesses and analyzes your pain and movement dysfunction in order to not just treat your symptoms, but to discover the root cause of your injury or limitations.  Our therapists believe that dedicating the time to a thorough, hands-on evaluation to determine the source is the only way to begin a personalized treatment plan that will result in you achieving maximum independence, pain relief, health, and performance.

Do I need to see a doctor before starting physical therapy?

No, you are able to see a physical therapist without a referral from a doctor first. This direct access can save you time and money, helping you to feel better faster.


Do I need to have an injury to see a physical therapist?

No, our physical therapists excel at identifying movement dysfunctions and imbalances that could cause a current injury or may lead to future injury. Outside of injury rehabilitation, we provide performance therapy using a combination of hands-ons manual therapy techniques and corrective exercises designed to optimize your body mechanics and enhance your overall athletic performance.
