Your body is made to move. When pain or dysfunction interferes with your ability to move well, your system breaks down, and injuries follow. Physical therapy focuses on evaluating and treating movement dysfunctions, as well as providing clients with the neck, shoulder, back, and foot pain relief they are looking for.
Physical therapists are skilled at identifying and correcting the source of the problem, but the physical therapists at Kinetic Edge understand that the location of pain and the source of the problem are not always the same thing.
The key to enhancing comfort and performance lies in understanding how the various links in the kinetic chain impact each other. This allows you to understand why you’re hurting, as well as what you can do to eliminate it and prevent it from reoccurring.
When you visit Kinetic Edge, your physical therapist will empower you to learn the skills for pain-free, active movement through a unique, holistic approach. Not only will you get the results you want fast, but you will also be empowered to learn movement skills that can help you achieve long-term pain relief, improve poor balance, minimize motor skill delays, and solve other problems that are keeping you from feeling your best. It’s our passion to help you move better so that you feel better, function better, and live your life to the fullest. If you’ve recently suffered an injury while playing a sport or have been dealing with chronic pain from a past work injury or other condition, we invite you to contact with Kinetic Edge to see how you can benefit from our physical therapy services.
Whether you recently injured your wrist, ankle, neck, or back, Kinetic Edge offers quality physical therapy services tailored to your needs.

In addition to injuries, poor posture or otherwise weak musculature can also cause pain that impacts your ability to complete daily tasks and your quality of life.
While home remedies, braces, or support bandages may provide temporary relief, we recommend you seek the assistance of a professional. Together, we’ll develop an approach that includes exercises and movements to relieve your pain. No matter the type of pain you have, our physical therapists have the skills and knowledge necessary to provide you with the following:
In addition to treating wrist pain, knee pain, back, and neck pain, our team also has experience treating vertigo to improve poor balance and prevent the unpleasant and sometimes life-disrupting symptoms that can accompany this condition.
