Outpatient Physical Therapy

Our Approach

Our goal at Geer Physical Therapy is to return patients to their normal activities, as free of pain as possible, as soon as possible!

Physical Therapy is very often an extremely effective way to manage pain and mobility issues. Our fully equipped gym, equipment and access to the YMCA pool provide the appropriate space for the required level of care and treatment.

We treat common conditions such as headaches, neck and low back pain, shoulder and elbow tendonitis and hip and knee, foot and heel pain. We help patients recover from injuries and manage arthritis, jaw pain, workplace ergonomic issues and much more.

Let us find the best approach to help you manage your condition with well-established, non-surgical treatments that offer high benefit with low risk of harmful side effects.

“My daughter is a therapist and wanted me to send a special thank you to Mike and wish him a Happy Birthday. She and I are both extremely thankful to him for the great work he did to prevent neck surgery! Please send him “our” best wishes. ”
