Heinen Physical Therapy
Family owned and operated, Heinen Physical Therapy is a low volume clinic that strives to provide excellent patient care by listening to our patients concerns and developing effective treatment plans to alleviate pain, improve movement, and return patients to what they love doing. We’re a husband and wife team who received their Doctor of Physical Therapy degrees from the University of Miami in south Florida-one of the top ten Physical Therapy schools in the nation.
Early in our careers, we both worked in high volume corporate clinics and have seen treatments become ineffective and people slip through the cracks because there’s just too many patients and not enough therapists. We started HeinenPT to break the mold and make PT how it should be! We utilize the most effective manual techniques, patient and diagnosis specific therapeutic exercise, and cutting edge technology to achieve our patients goals. As evidence progresses so do we, we never stop learning the latest evidence based treatments to keep our clinic at the top! Not all Physical Therapy is created equal, come see the Heinen PT difference today!
