Our physical therapy clinic is designed with one goal in mind: helping every patient achieve their full physical potential. We started Method Athletics with a stubborn mission to answer directly to our patients and provide them with high-quality physical therapy that is centered around them, their goals, and the activities they love. All of our sessions are one-on-one, attentive and engaging sessions with a Doctor of Physical Therapy. During the course of treatment, we will identify the cause of your symptoms, develop a plan of action to specifically address those causes, and work together toward a safe and effective return to activity. All of our patients are members of our team and our family, and are treated as such.
All sessions are one-on-one, engaging sessions with a Doctor of Physical Therapy for the entire session.
Our clinicians have worked with everyone from weekend warriors to professional + Olympic level athletes.
Our comprehensive approach not only helps you feel better, it helps you perform and move better.
What will my first session look like?
During our first session together, we will perform a comprehensive movement assessment and provide you with a full PDF report detailing our thoughts and observations, including a movement diagnosis and a detailed plan of action. Your "movement diagnosis" is a non-medical, physical therapy-based diagnosis that clearly identifies the movements which are suspected to be the cause of your mechanical pain. We live and breathe transparency and education, so get ready to learn and grow together.
During your evaluation, a Doctor of Physical Therapy will appropriately identify the cause of your symptoms, not just the source. Athletic and recreational injuries at one joint are often caused in part or whole by deficits or limitations at another, and unfortunately they often get lost by therapists in what we call "symptom tunnel vision". We will assess the specific movements and activities that you would like to return to and discuss specifically how we will work together to accomplish your goals.
Whether you are recovering post-operatively or dealing with an overuse injury, we will give you the attention to detail you deserve. Each and every patient is a member of our family, our team, and we treat you as such.
What conditions do you treat?
As primarily orthopedic therapists, we excel in the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions including acute and overuse injuries as well as pre- and post-operative care. Neck, shoulder, back, hip, knee, or ankle pain? We have you covered. Not sure if we can help you? Fill out our contact form below and we promise to get back to you within 24 hours.
Do I need a physician referral to a physical therapist to get an appointment?
No! Although many clinics still require a physician's referral to be seen, we do not. As Doctors of Physical Therapy, our level of education allows us to appropriately identify whether or not conditions are within our scope of practice. Evidence has shown that being seen by a physical therapist before a physician for musculoskeletal injuries saves you both time and money as well as improves patient outcomes and reduces risk of future injury. If there is a problem we cannot treat, we will be able to work with your physician or find you one to get you the care you need.
Do you only treat competitive athletes?
Definitely not! We do, and LOVE, to treat non-athletes (and recreational athletes). In fact, we have had great success with patients who have not responded positively to physical therapy under "traditional" models due to our one-on-one treatment practices and unique facility. If you are experiencing pain, give us a call, shoot us a message, or leave your contact information below and we would be happy to help.
Do you accept my insurance?
We are an out of network therapy provider, meaning we do not directly work with insurance. However, you can call your insurance company (with the number on the back of your insurance card) and ask them “what are my out of network physical therapy benefits?"
Most patients are reimbursed some or all of their physical therapy treatment. We will give you all of the information needed to seek reimbursement upon request. HSA/FSA payments are also accepted for all physical therapy services.
As an out of network provider, we can work 1-on-1 directly with our patients and provide them the care they deserve. While most clinics see patients 3 times per week to reach an hour of time spent with a physical therapist, we most often recommend 1 time per week for a full hour with a Doctor of Physical Therapy. Typically, patients spend less for their entire course of care with our clinic than at traditional model clinics.
How long do I have to wait for an appointment?
We usually have appointments available within the next 1-2 days. We also offer Saturday hours and Sunday hours by appointment.
