Services available at Athletico Liberty include:

  • Physical therapy – Personalized treatment plans, developed in partnership with patients, provide rehabilitation for different issues including back and neck pain, sport, work or auto injuries, muscle strains and sprains or joint replacement therapy to name a few.
  • Complimentary injury screenings – A 30-minute free assessment performed by a licensed clinician who reviews an injury or problem to your musculoskeletal complaint, as well as assesses movement impairments and discusses how this is affecting activities of daily living. Please note, restrictions apply.
  • Workers’ compensation From the time of injury to case closure, our rehabilitation services work for our patients in a cost-effective and timely manner. This service educates employees on safe work habits and injury prevention. Athletico also customizes treatments to meet the needs of each case and offers work conditioning evaluations and workers’ compensation services to provide the stabilizing, strengthening, and conditioning necessary for work simulation and return-to-work.
  • Manual therapy – Also known as hands-on physical therapy, manual therapy uses no devices or machines. Instead, therapists use only their hands to perform tissue work and mobilization/manipulation. Therapists apply pressure to the soft tissues of the body, such as the muscles. This pressure can help relax muscles, increase circulation, break up scar tissue, and reduce or eliminate soft tissue inflammation.

Additionally, Athletico Liberty:

  • Accepts all major insurance plans so you don’t need to worry about your visits not being covered.
  • Offers convenient hours, including early mornings and late evenings.
  • Schedules each initial evaluation within 24-48 hours of the patient’s request.
  • Provides ongoing patient education on diagnosis, treatment plans and prescribed home-exercise programs.
  • Practices clear, consistent communication between therapist, physician and patient regarding progress.
