What Does Non-traditional Mean?

At Alternative HealthCare Solutions, our treatment philosophy differs from traditional physical therapy departments in several important ways:

  • The true cause of your problem will be located instead of just treating the symptoms.
  • Correcting your problem will involve using highly specialized manual therapy techniques which never require manipulations.
  • You won’t find a room full of strange exercise equipment inside. With over 40 years of uninterrupted clinical experience, our hands and our minds are our main tools. Besides, most of the exercises we teach are designed to be performed with simple items found around the house.
  • You won’t find hot packs here either. They have no long-term benefit.
  • We won’t keep you coming back time after time. We try to get the job done in three or four visits.

At Alternative HealthCare Solutions:

  • You will get a full hour of one-on-one treatment if you need it.
  • This care will be provided by licensed therapists at all times. NO NON-LICENSED HELPERS EVER!
  • Audits of our charts indicate that we achieve patient goals in significantly less visits than traditional practices.
  • And here is an unexpected twist….our average visit charge is approximately 75% lower than large hospital corporate practices.

We work hard and honestly to get you better and, we don’t soak you for it.

We wouldn’t have it any other way!
