About Us


How We Work


Quality treatment time is important. You will not be handed-off to an assistant, aide, or tech, because we don’t employ any. You will not be doubled up with another patient or treated as part of a group. Your entire 45 min physical therapy appointment will be with a Doctor of Physical Therapy. We will take time to listen to you, hear your story, and learn your goals. We believe every patient is unique and we strive to provide and individualized approach.


Neuro-Musculo-Skeletal Health is our specialty. The "neuro" part of the term "neuromusculoskeletal" refers to our nervous system that coordinates the ways in which our bodies move, operate, and process pain.


We excel in pain relief and return of function. If physical therapy, chiropractic, surgery, or exercise has failed you in the past, we will change that. One of our specialty areas is working with those patients who have racked up a history of failed treatment. Further, we strive to empower you to become engaged in the process.


Specialty and post-professional training is important for our providers. All of our therapists have Doctoral degrees AND post-professional credentials.


We focus on 1 location, and do it well. We have a state-of-the-art medical gym and private treatment rooms equipped with electric high-low treatment table for your comfort. (Our location, equipment)


Physical therapist owned. We earn every patient. The vast majority of our patients come to us via word-of-mouth recommendations from happy patients. Doctor-owned or hospital-owned physical therapy services enjoy automatic referrals from owners to keep and promote “business in-house”. We have no such relationships.


Make us part of your team. We welcome referrals from your provider and provide them with our evaluation reports, treatment plans, progress and discharge communications.

Services


Physical Therapy


At LifeForce, we take the time to understand the cause of your problem and don’t just treat the symptoms. All treatment is provided by a Doctor of Physical Therapy so that treatment is constantly delivered at the top of the skill-chain. If prior musculoskeletal treatments have failed you, consider the LifeForce approach.

Expert Manual Therapy


Advanced hands-on evaluation and treatment of the joint and neuro-musculo-skeletal system to determine any interplay between joint restrictions and compensations. Manual therapy is typically not a stand-alone treatment, but is most powerful when used within a comprehensive physical therapy treatment approach. We look at the TOTAL picture.

Dry Needling


A treatment technique that uses small, filament type needles to release trigger points that accompany acute and chronic pain. Filament needles are not hollow, so nothing is injected—hence the name. Dry needling is typically not a stand-alone treatment, but is most powerful when used within a comprehensive physical therapy treatment approach.

Medical Exercise Class Therapy


Small-group exercise classes consisting of custom exercise circuits tailored to each individual participant, led by a Doctor of Physical Therapy. Simply put, you get what you need, and avoid what you don’t need. This class addresses: Motor control, stability, mobility, balance, posture, and function.

Concierge Program


Our unique and popular program couples 1:1 sessions with a PT along with our small-group Medical Exercise Classes to optimize musculoskeletal wellness and performance. We offer 6- and 12-month packages. Ideal for those working on high-level performance (dancers, athletes, musicians, golfers) or for those patients managing chronic pain or musculoskeletal dysfunction.

Custom Orthotics


Our research-based devices work best when coupled with physical therapy to ensure optimum results by addressing joint mobility, total leg strength, and gait/running biomechanics. We often find that once these issues are addressed, a more optimized custom device can be fabricated, or may not even be needed. We also make sport-specific devices or custom in-shoe padding for golf, skiing, hiking, cycling, and dance.

Dance/Musician Injury Rehab


Liz Henry, PT brings decades of experience with the New York City Ballet, Westside Dance PT in NY, Carolina Ballet and others to LifeForce. Dance injuries and optimizing the body for dance is one of the things we do best for all kinds of dancers, not just professional ballet dancers.

Running Injury Rehab


We can help you with all aspects of running including injuries or running optimization. We have helped the gamut of elite-level runners all the way to those whose goal it is to walk a 5K. Advanced running analysis and musculoskeletal evaluation addresses your total running profile.

Golf Injury Rehab


We have advanced medical training from Titeleist Performance Institute (TPI) to optimize performance and to manage golf injuries or swing deficits. We combine the TPI evaluation, manual joint exam and golf-specific motor control assessment to identify areas of focus. We look at the whole golfer from the ground up to establish a plan to address your goals.
