Dr. Praneeth Purimetla
We provide evidence-based treatment that decreases pain, improves function, and reduces cost for our patients.
We strive to enhance overall wellness by developing the patient-provider relationship, focusing on the individual person, as well as their impairments. We utilize manual therapy to reduce pain and allow for a return to normal activity, in a friendly and welcoming environment.
At your initial evaluation, a thorough assessment will be performed aimed at discovering the root cause of your issue. Together, we will establish your goals and treatment plan. You will be educated along the way, on any impairments found and the necessary intervention that will be implemented. We encourage patient involvement and questions are encouraged.
If you are experiencing limitations in your everyday function due to mobility restrictions or pain and are looking for alternatives to surgery or medication, Journey Physical Therapy is here to help.
