Physical Therapy in Lakeway, TX

Those suffering from lower back pain, fractures, head injuries, arthritis and other impairments, injuries and disabilities can greatly benefit from physical therapy. Our team of knowledgeable physical therapists is trained to work with each patient to help improve function and mobility while lessening symptoms and promoting a healthier and more active lifestyle.

Before beginning physical therapy, your physical therapist will sit down with you to discuss your medical history and to perform a series of tests to check your range of motion, coordination, muscle performance, motor function and strength to determine possible problems. Based on this physical examination and results of your tests we will be able to make an accurate diagnosis and create a treatment plan in which we select the best interventions to help meet your goals for rehabilitation.

Treatment will often include a combination of strengthening and stretching exercises geared toward improving overall balance, coordination, strength and quality of life. Our goal for any patients’ treatment is to better both their professional and personal life through making physical activity easier and pain-free despite such factors as age, trauma, and chronic illnesses.
