Physical Therapy

The Shift Way


Your physical therapy sessions are always one-on-one with a highly trained physical therapist.


You may work with one physical therapist, but you will always have the support of our entire team. Each one of our physical therapists has their own unique set of skills and perspective and we want you to benefit from our combined knowledge. Besides, it’s more creative and more fun.

Patient Centered

You will be informed and empowered as an integral part of the decision making process. Your physical therapist acts as a partner in your care—not the central authority figure. Decisions will be made based on your needs not the healthcare system.


We recognize that pain and injury is not only physical; it is also emotional, psychological, spiritual and energetic. So we offer you an integrative approach that supports the whole you and not just your diagnosis. Prevention and wellness are emphasized.

What to Expect

One of the things patients like best about Shift is the beautiful light-filled open environment. Locker rooms are available for you if you would like to bring a change of clothing as you will need to expose the body part that is being treated so we can look at it and measure your strength and mobility and manually assess the joint and soft tissue quality.

Following the evaluation, we will explain our findings and together we will make a detailed plan of recovery that includes the whole you, not just your diagnosis. We want to empower and inform you so that you are an integral part of the decision making process. Your session will always be one-on-one with your therapist. Shift never uses aides or assistants to provide your care, only licensed Physical Therapists.
