Make An Appointment

At Clutch Physical Therapy, we provide customized, functional treatments with a full understanding of what you’re going through mentally and emotionally. The wild-animal-trapped-in-a-cage feeling when your body isn't cooperating? We get it.

You will receive the highest quality of care and undivided attention from actual doctors — not aides or assistants. Your recovery is too important to be treated by someone from the JV squad.

We also provide camaraderie as athletes ourselves — we’re out there training, competing and fundraising for charities right along with you. We place a very high value on the development of long term relationships with the athletes we treat. 

 

 

We’ll address the root cause of your pain, then develop a regimen of injury prevention to maximize your potential and keep you pain-free.  

Our Athlete Mechanics specialize in:

  • Sports & Orthopedic Physical Therapy, using the techniques of Applied Functional Science, Active Release Technique (ART) and Spinal Mobilization and Manipulation
  • Post-Op Rehab (Specialization in ACL, Achilles and Rotator Cuff and Labral Repairs)
  • Sports Performance
  • Soft Tissue Mobilization
  • Biomechanical Video Analysis
  • General commiseration that injury blows
