About Optimum Performance Physical Therapy

OPPT is dedicated to making you get better in a natural way

Optimum Performance Physical Therapy (OPPT) is dedicated to empowering our clients to discover their own inner healing powers naturally. We believe this can be achieved without having to resort to taking powerful prescription medicines or by undergoing invasive surgeries or injections. We all possess powerful healing capacities once we are provided with the proper education and comprehensive treatment. Our approach is to improve balance of the whole person (mind, body & spirit) through a combination of hands-on therapeutic approaches, proper movement education and personalized exercises. We are all unique individuals, therefore, your treatment plan will be tailored to your specific goals.

We also believe that all humans are athletes at their core. Webster’s dictionary defines an athlete as a person who is trained in exercises, sports, or games requiring physical strength, agility or endurance. Whether we care to admit it, we are all participating in the greatest game of all: Life. It is critical we understand the fundamental patterns of movement and how to use them in our daily activities or when competing in a sporting event. Failure to properly move or not move (ex: sitting at your computer) can lead to the development of chronic painful musculoskeletal conditions. Whether you’re looking to rehabilitate an injury or achieve a personal record, OPPT is committed to helping you live the life you desire without injury or pain.

What we do?

Helping you become the best version of your abilities!

Like many physical therapists, my first introduction to the career came after I sustained an injury. I was serving in the Army at the time and broke my leg. I was very fortunate at that time to receive outstanding physical therapy and recovered completely. Actually, due to the expertise of my physical therapist, I was faster competing in triathlons than before this serious injury. This experience provided the inspiration to combine two of my passions – giving back to the community and sports – into a career. Read More…
