About us

We believe that by combining a team of highly trained, friendly therapists who apply a forward-thinking methodology with a high priority on patient experience and outcomes that you will be glad you chose Alliance!

Getting you better, quicker.

When it comes to treating injury, a quicker recovery is better in every way (time, cost and outcome). We don’t just talk about it, we actively prioritize maximal patient improvement in minimal visits through everything we do, and the results speak for themselves.

Our values help us achieve this consistently.

Outcome-oriented service

We track our patient’s satisfaction and their progress towards

their goals using the gold standard, nationally recognized outcome measure called Focus on Therapeutic Outcomes. 

FOTO allows us to compare ourselves nationally and internationally against our competitors and peers.

Unique treatment plans

We use a unique treatment plan rooted in a scientific, evidence based approach that offers a combination of the most effective and highly skilled treatments available. 

We train our physical therapists to practice at the highest level of their licensing, allowing us the opportunity to gain the maximum benefit from each session.

You, at the center

By placing our patients at the center of their recovery we work to create a warm professional relationship that allows them to know that we have listened and understood their concerns, priorities and goals.

We work together to formulate a treatment plan that will work for each individual.

Educating & empowering

Through sharing ideas, tools and techniques with our patients, we help to put them back in charge instead of feeling like a victim to their pain. 

This not only enables them to make progress between sessions but also gives them the knowledge and tools to stay pain free long after they are done with formal physical therapy.

Meet the team.

A great relationship with our patients is critical to our service – patients need to feel at ease and trust their therapist. Therefore, our team is a carefully assembled combination of experts whose personal values and skills align with our core principles. From therapists to office staff, everyone is here to deliver you a great customer experience and service with a smile.
