You don’t have to live with pain.
Do I need to see my doctor to start physical therapy?
No, you may refer yourself directly to physical therapy. If you DON’T have insurance…Don’t worry, we have programs just for you! Depending on the complexity of your condition, treatments range between $40-$90 per session.
What should I expect on my first visit?
First, be sure to write down the important facts about the history of your problem. Be sure to bring a list of your medications and any surgeries or procedure you have had in the past.
Wear comfortable clothes – for example: shorts if you have a leg injury and short-sleeved top or tank tops for shoulder injuries.
There will be an initial evaluation – focusing on measuring impairments that may be causing your problem or that may be affected by your injury.
Finally, we will discuss with you the goals of treatment and the expected course of your rehab.
How long will my visit last?
Between 30-45 minutes for a new eval and follow-ups are 30 minutes. There is an option to extend sessions depending on the complexity of the case. Please check with our office for fees associated with extended sessions.
How long will it take for me to get better?
How quickly you recover is determined by many factors unique to you. These factors include the extent of damaged tissue, how long you have had the injury, nutrition, emotional state, etc.
Many clients feel better after the very 1st session and most complete therapy after only 6 sessions!
What is my responsibility in physical therapy?
We can provide you with the tools to recover but we ask that all patients and clients cooperate by following through with their home exercise programs and instructions.
What happens after my therapy is complete?
Some patients will need to continue with home exercises. Some may choose to continue with a gym exercise program. Others will complete their rehabilitation and return to normal daily activities. It is important that you communicate your goals to us so that we can develop a custom program for you.

Here’s a little more about me. I love living in Colorado, we have such wonderful weather and so much sun! I love running half marathons, marathons, and hiking in the summer. I love to snow ski and snowshoe in the winter, and I recently took up scuba diving for more active beach vacations. I am active in yoga, Pilates, and continue to take Ballet classes for fun. I love traveling, reading, baking, and visiting my family as much as possible.
I am an advocate for all animals, and I really love dogs! I have been blessed to have had 3 beautiful labs: Bailey (yellow), Mabel (chocolate) and Lu (black) all that brought so much joy and love into my life. They have since passed on and my current love is a little boxer/pitbull mix named Bruce. See photo of my goofball!
Life without a dog is like a day without love or sunshine for me. After Bailey passed, I started volunteering and walking dogs at the Maxfund Animal Shelter in Denver. It was at that shelter that I met Lu and Mabel, 2 dogs that both stole my heart. Lu was a black lab/great Dane mix, about 90 pounds and thought he was a lap dog 🙂. Mabel was 12 when I adopted her and still had the cutest little personality and love for tennis balls. After they both passed, I started fostering with PawsCO and was given Bruce. Bruce must be the goofiest dog and he is such a lover. I foster failed and he’s now part of the family, you’ll frequently see him sleeping in the back office of the clinic.
I support the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), PawsCO, Denver Dumb Friends League, Best Friends Animal Society, Wild Animal Sanctuary, and several other smaller local animal charities or shelters. Trying to help as many animals as I can to have kind and loving homes.
