Our Mission

Riverwalk PT is committed to providing the highest level of progressive and comprehensive care. Our physical therapists perform an extensive evaluation and customized integration of approaches best suited for each client including, core strengthening, targeted stretching, gait, posture, balance and functional training, joint mobilization, muscle energy techniques, myofascial release, and trigger point work. Each client is under constant supervision during their visit by trained specialists.

At Riverwalk PT we help people change movement patterns to improve restricted daily habits of movement, gain strength and range of motion, while rehabilitating from injuries, orthopedic problems, or neurological conditions. We place a great emphasis on designing and teaching patients home exercise programs that are both effective and easy to follow.
