He believes physical therapy is more than just a bodily experience, honoring the mind-body connection as one of the most powerful tools you can learn.
"I had great results for my shoulder injury after I worked with Rajesh. He is very knowledgeable, skilled and professional. Rajesh knows how to listen to your concerns. He is attentive and explains everything he does during the treatments. I had a sport injury which caused me chronic should pain for 1.5 years. I became weak on the injury side and hindered my ability to do the sport I loved. After a couple of treatments with Rajesh the improvement was greatly noticeable. I can now practice the sport I love and I am pain free! I recommend seeing Rajesh if you need an awesome PT!"

What to expect?
Prior to beginning physical therapy, it is essential that we have an in-depth consultation during which we discuss your injury or condition, your expectations of results, lifestyle, daily habits, and more. The process of physical therapy grows the mind-body connection, and this consultation allows us to more fully understand how to meet you where you are. During our consultation, we will also discuss the methods we use to encourage and promote healing, and which may be of best use to you. We will create a customized treatment plan that addresses your unique concerns.
Physical Therapy Appointment
We will always discuss our therapy strategy for the session with you. For each treatment session, you and our highly-trained Physical Therapist will meet for your PT. Sessions may include muscle manipulation, cupping, ultrasound, TENS unit, and more.
Results vary greatly depending on the different types of tissue, pain-level, post-operative condition, and more. Typically, it takes at least 2 to 4 weeks to begin seeing results, and the longer you stick with physical therapy the more likely you are to enjoy optimal results.
What should I wear to my physical therapy appointment?
Wear comfortable, light-weight clothing. Athletic-wear or comfortable leisure-wear is ideal.
Is physical therapy painful?
Physical therapy shouldn't hurt, and our Physical Therapist is highly trained in safe techniques to encourage your healing. However, because physical therapy may require the use of injured, tired, or compromised muscles and joints, it may be difficult. The journey of physical therapy is not always an easy one but the results are always rewarding.
