Physical Therapy to Return to Your Active Lifestyle

Our purpose is to quickly get you back to what you love, no matter your injury, age or activity level. No more resting injuries, sitting out, modifying workouts and putting up with pain. Want to avoid surgery, stop taking pain meds or ditch tape/braces? We will show you how, because we don’t want you to miss out any longer!

Physical Therapy Sessions Deliver Specialized Recovery

You deserve specialized care, not a one-size-fits-none cookie-cutter approach to pain relief and recovery. The patients at Breaking Through quickly notice how different our approach is is during their first visit. Noticeably absent are the one size fits all protocols, various machines and the latest gimmicks found in traditional physical therapy clinics. Each visit you will have a one-to-one assessment and physical therapy treatment focused on your specific, individual needs. Because you are important to us, we will be focused on finding what is holding you back from the things you love to do.

Josh Palcic, PT, DPT

Dr. Josh explains how our bodies communicate with us by generating pain and how physical therapy sessions at Breaking Through are designed to restore your function, while decreasing your pain in less sessions and with long-lasting results.

What to Expect at your Physical Therapy Session

During each visit with your Physical Therapist at Breaking Through you will receive: 

  • One on One Assessment: You will perform a functional screen to determine the unique causes of your symptoms
  • Treatment: To treat the cause of your ailment, we use specific, hands-on methods followed by functional reinforcement exercises to re-educate your body.
  • Re-Assessment: Performed at the conclusion of each visit. We focus on how you are moving and will assess that you are moving better than when you came in.
  • Education: We spend a large portion of time teaching you how you became injured and for the prevention of future injuries. We then create a customized program you can use at home, work, or play to avoid repeat visits. We want You to become the expert of You!

What do our sports rehab and physical therapy patients say about Breaking Through?

I went to see Dr Josh about an old arm injury from a few years back. I was in pain daily and my hand would often go numb. I had 2 cortisone shots and was recommended to not use my arm and that eventually I would need surgery. Dr Josh was great at explaining what he found during my consultation and gave me workouts to take home. Because I live over an hour away he was clear and reasonable with expectations. After 3 weeks of doing exercises I am still sleeping comfortably and my hand has not gone numb once, and I am using my arm in daily tasks again! I highly recommend giving Breaking Through a try, you won’t be sorry!!

I suffer from chronic back pain (ruptured two discs in lower back 10 years ago). I re-injured my back last week while working out to the point where it was hard to walk, sit, stand, and basically move. My pain was so bad that I had to take a break from working out, which wasn’t good for my own mental health. I decided to try Breaking Through. I have had one session so far with Evan and seriously I feel like a new person. The next day I was back at the gym working out to full strength and stamina. It’s amazing how much he has helped me! Thank you Evan! If you are suffering from pain and limited on what you can do than give them a call!
