The goal of physical therapy is always the same; it is to help you move better and help with pain relief through: promoting tissue repair, improving your fitness level and physical function.
At Mesa Physical Therapy we strongly believe that physical therapy is not about pain and torture, but rather it is about diminishing pain and reclaiming function. This means you can have the best quality of life as you define it.
There is a diverse group of people that can benefit from Physical Therapy and pain relief: a person with chronic neck pain or those in need of back pain relief, a professional with repetitive strain injury, a worker with an injured shoulder, a senior with arthritis, an injured athlete, a surgical patient needing rehabilitation and many others.
Contrary to what most people think, physical therapy is not solely used for the treatment of an injury or a disability. Physical therapists are widely recognized for being experts in providing impactful preventative care and wellness. Consulting a physical therapist early on could potentially provide pain relief as well as help you avoid drugs or surgery as the treatment for your particular condition.
By combining exercises that strengthen your muscles and correct posture, stretches that improve your flexibility and increase range of motion and manual pain therapy that reduces pain and inflammation, a physical therapist can design an individualized plan of care that will help you reach your unique functional goals.
Patient education is a key factor that distinguishes a good physical therapist from a great one. At Mesa Physical Therapy we believe knowledge is power. We want to empower patients by giving them the tools, structure and resources they need to succeed. To achieve this, we have created Specialized Programs designed to be the road maps for your unique path to recovery and avoid any further pain.

Mesa Phys Therapy is AWESOME! I went for an IT Band issue that was posing problems when I ran. The whole staff is friendly, and knowledgeable. I was always greeted with a smile (even when I wasn't in the best mood). Mark was my PT and he was fantastic. He set me up with regular exercises to do at home. At the office he tried a few different treatments and when we hit on something that worked well, we kept at it. I was able to not only run the shorter distances that would begin to manifest the pain in my knee, but move beyond those distances and get into longer and longer runs. The net result: my runs were more consistent, my speed increased, and the pain went away. If I have another issue that needs to be dealt with through PT, I'll definitely use Mesa again.
