Physical Therapy Treatments for the Prescott Area

The Center for Physical Excellence offers physical therapy treatments to the Quad-City area of Prescott, Prescott Valley, Chino Valley and Dewey-Humboldt, Arizona.

Physical Therapy and Separate Wellness Center

Our facility is the only Private Practice Physical Therapy office in this area with a separate wellness center utilized for preoperative care and education, wellness training and fitness services.

Each of our clients is provided a two week membership to the wellness center upon completion of their physical therapy care.  This setting provides an excellent transition to independent self care and maintenance/enhancement of health and overall well-being of our clients.

Manual Therapy

Rebuilding Through Touch

Manual therapy is the foundation upon which minimizing pain and enhancing movement is built. These techniques reduce muscle guarding and restore impaired range of motion associated with injury or movement dysfunction.

Our expertise lies in one-on-one care, including soft tissue and joint mobilization techniques for the spine and extremities. These hands-on manual techniques restore joint and soft tissue biomechanics needed for progression towards exercise and daily activities.

Aquatic Therapy

Aquatic Therapy Pool

One asset of our facility is our multi-depth saltwater aquatic therapy pool (salt is softer on your skin). Some clients find land based exercises difficult, specially those suffering from acute or chronic pain, arthritis and spine or extremity dysfunction.

Water-based exercises are much easier because the water reduces the body weight that you must support. In fact, our pool has a six foot deep area providing a completely non-weight bearing environment for exercise.

Water-Based Exercises

Having access to the pool on site at our facility opens up a multitude of options for therapy programs. We can start with only water-based exercises, slowly making the transition to land based exercises or we can incorporate both types in one session. By using water, we’ve found it to be easier on certain clients as well as helping them improve faster.

Exercise Therapy

Rebuilding Through Movement

Whether your goal is to minimize pain, rebuild muscle after an injury or surgery, maintain or improve bone and joint strength and integrity or to become a professional athlete, our well-equipped exercise and training facility can help you reach optimal performance and function.

Our physical therapists have superior knowledge in proper exercise dosage principles to help you achieve specific training goals and target specific tissues in the neuromusculoskeletal system.

Sports Specific Therapy

Getting you Back to Your Game

If you’ve had a sport injury, our highly trained and specialized physical therapists can help you get back to your game as soon as possible.

Our therapists are experts in biomechanics.  They understand that each sport has its own specific requirements, and that each sport needs specific rehabilitation. If you are a  long distance runner needing cardiovascular endurance or a football player needing strength and power, a soccer player needing speed and agility or a golfer needing to improve a movement pattern, our skilled and knowledgeable therapists will help you get back to the game safely.

Our therapists will also educate you on sports performance and injury prevention.

The Athletic Performance Center of Prescott is the fitness facility wing of The Center for Physical Excellence.
