Treatment at AXIS
Healing Hands-on Care
We’ll help you get the most effective care possible, so you can get back to doing the things you love.
A customized approach to physical therapy
Therapists at Axis use a broad range of approaches to help patients meet their goals. We work with patients of all ages with a range of physical limitation, injury or disability.
Our primary approach to treatment is manual therapy, a system of very specific hands-on techniques that restore normal joint and soft tissue mobility, release adhesions and alleviate pain.
In addition to manual treatment, we also utilize specific exercise programs and help identify and modify daily activities that may be causing more stress and strain on the body.
We develop exercise and self care programs for the individual needs of each patient with respect for pain response and activity limits, while facilitating maximum function.
