Blog Posts from the Breaking Through Team

The team at Breaking Through Intensive Therapy genuinely loves what we do. There is nothing more rewarding than having a patient, who was previously in pain and frustrated with an inactive lifestyle, declare their excitement with being able to move again without pain. We are proud that by using The One80 System we have found an effective way to treat our physical therapy patients, one-on-one, getting to the root cause of their dysfunction, in less sessions.  This not only gets them back to doing what they love faster, it saves them money by not paying for endless physical therapy sessions.

In our blog posts you can find patient success stories as well as general tricks and tips for optimizing your own body and its ability for fully functional movement. Use the category tabs to filter the blog posts in order to search for the specific topic you're interested in.

If you have a question you would like to see answered in a post, or you have a patient success story you feel comfortable sharing, please let us know.
