Physical Therapists Colorado Springs: Physical therapists are movement specialists trained to evaluate, diagnose and treat conditions with physical therapy that may hinder people from living life as fully as they would like. In Colorado, you can see a physical therapist immediately, without a referral, and we get you on the fast track to pain-free living.
After receiving a thorough evaluation, we work with you to create a customized program to meet your specific needs. During your treatment sessions at Great Moves, you spend the entire time exclusively with your therapist. Your therapist meets your individual needs using ‘hands on’ therapy, education and exercises to enhance your quality of life. In an age where most clinics provide short treatment times and use support personnel, we have been able to provide our 1-on-1, 60-minute treatment sessions without the use of aides and techs.
All of physical therapists and specialists are accredited by their respective associations. This best assures you get the highest quality of care. It’s now time for you to meet our team!
