Physical Therapy & Sports Rehab in Baton Rouge and Zachary, LA

Choosing a physical therapy provider used to be all about convenience , but in today’s world of specialized health care there’s much more to think about. Rather than picking a clinic because it is closest to where you work or live, you may want to consider the facility, equipment, and staff expertise with your particular condition. Physical therapy clinics can vary widely.

All Physical Therapy Clinics Are Not The Same – That’s Why We Offer A Free Physical Therapy Screening  So You Can Learn More About Options For Treating Your Particular Condition

Why Request A Free Screening

Our first responsibility to you, the patient, is to determine the correct course of treatment for your unique problem, whether that means a course of physical therapy or referral to a physician for more medical testing.  As you will see in the description below, our intention is to do everything we can to put you on the right track to help your condition.  If that means referring you to someone else, that is exactly what we will do.

When you book your screening we will send you a pre first visit package that will include forms that you can fill out to help us determine how we can help you with your condition. These forms can also be accessed through our Appointment Booking page. Our receptionist can help you complete any sections of the form.

Your therapist will discuss this information and the nature of your problem to determine whether physical therapy treatment is appropriate or not.

If therapy is indicated, we will be happy to schedule a full evaluation for you.

Our Team

Karl Kleinpeter, PT, DPT

CEO

“The healthcare system can be overwhelming and patients can feel like a number that is lost in the shuffle. One of the best aspects of our practice is the personal attention we provide to our patients. We listen to them. We take time to get to know them. We make sure we understand their concerns and we work with them to achieve their goals so they can get back to loving their life. These interactions help us to provide an even higher level of care and I feel that it gives patients a real sense of compassion that we feel for them.”
