Living Well Therapy Provides a Greater Value

Our primary provider, Erik Zamboni, DPT, CSCS, CEAS is a Certified Ergonomic Assessment Specialist and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, both useful tools in assisting the patient to more rapidly return to full function and their regular sport or activity.

Faster & Safer Return to Sports and Activities. Unlike most physical therapy clinics, during our routine treatment, we objectively test a patients physical abilities and recommend appropriate activity restrictions to the referring physician. This eliminates the guess work for the physician to determine safe and appropriate restrictions and saves them time.

Lower Cost of Care to the Insurer. We are better able to differentially diagnose orthopedic problems due to the most advanced professional education. The better one can diagnose the problem, the easier it is to fix. Better diagnosis means more precise treatment which can reduce the cost of physical therapy care and increase patient satisfaction! A Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) degree is the highest level of professional education offered and is held by only a few percent of physical therapists nationally.

Cutting Edge Technology. We like to stay on the cutting edge of advances in healthcare technology and physical therapy. For example, we use an FDA approved 830 low level laser to expedite recovery. We also stay on the cutting edge by attending continuing education courses.

Licensed Massage Therapists. Live well and stay well by enjoying a relaxing and beneficial massage from a licensed massage therapist.

Continuity of Care. We do our very best to ensure that each patient sees the same provider each visit. Seeing the same provider whenever possible makes patients happier and reduces wasted time and insurance dollars from patients being shuffled between providers.
