Quite simply, we are different.
We specialize in treating competitive athletes with lower extremity injuries and have a special interest in ACL rehab and prevention.
We will provide the most effective rehab experience available centered around the unique needs, motivations, and goals of the competitive athlete from post-injury to FULL return to play.
We are committed to physical therapy practice supported by most current scientific research &
grounded in the best educational practices. No gimmicks. No waste-of-time gadgets.
The Laurus Difference
1-on-1 with a Doctor of Physical Therapy. No aides or PTAs.
100% Independently-owned & operated -the patient is at the center of equation, not a large orthopedic group.
Completely customized rehab plan built specific to the unique needs of your sport, position, or event.
Access and use of one of the most technologically-advanced physical therapy facilities in the nation and built specifically for the competitive athlete.
Athletic Setting & Proactive Philosophy - you will be pushed. (You are also expected to do your part!)
Rehab is directed by the needs of the patient, not the needs of an insurance company. For this reason, we do NOT bill through insurance. We limit our interaction with insurance to providing receipts for you to submit to you insurance on an out-of-network basis.
