ABOUT US

 Dr. Eric Vargas, PT, DPT

Pain specialists

Dr. Eric Vargas is a physical therapist and founder of TrueFix Physical Therapy. He is a Kansas City native, born and raised. Eric received his Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology with an emphasis in exercise physiology from Kansas State University. He then went on to receive his Doctorate of Physical Therapy at the University of Kansas Medical Center. Since graduating with his doctorate, he’s enjoyed working with a vast variety of patient’s suffering from pain and dysfunction. If there’s one thing he learned, it’s that pain is complex. That’s what led him to create TrueFix Physical Therapy. A space where he can give his clients the time and attention they need to not only relieve their pain, but keep it from coming back. 

Eric is a proud first generation American. His father, from Peru, and mother, from Colombia, raised him with the values of hard work and compassion for others. He’s proud to be bilingual, allowing him to break through the language barrier that often leads to decreased quality of care for those who speak Spanish. 

When he’s not working, Eric enjoys staying active, traveling, and cooking (eating). 

Post graduate training and special interests include: 

  • Functional Dry Needling 
  • Total Spine Thrust Manipulation
  • Cervical, Thoracic, and Lumbar Spine Management 
  • Extremity Syndrome Management
  • Chronic/Persistent Pain
  • Blood Flow Restriction Training
  • Functional Nutrition for Pain

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Education

We believe that pain is complex. You should know exactly what pain is, how it manifests itself, and how to manage the one and only body you are given. 

We believe that you aren’t a prisoner to your bulged disc, arthritis, or any other diagnosis that was given to you.  

We believe in educating you through every step of the process so that you can take back control. 

Movement

We believe that humans are meant to move. Bottom line.

We believe that movement is medicine. 

We believe that movement is personal. 

Lifestyle Factors

We believe that what you eat matters.

We believe that how you sleep matters.

We believe that what you do to manage stress matters.

Empowerment

We believe in making people stronger. 

We believe that human beings are capable of quarterbacking their own health.

We don’t believe in quick fixes. 

THE TRUEFIX PHYSICAL THERAPY DIFFERENCE

 

Our payment model allows you to work 1 on 1 for a full hour with your doctor of physical therapy. No aides. No time wasted on ice or heat. 1 hour of full attention from your PT to work towards your goals.

Having more time with you and being fully present during your appointments allows us to get results faster, while also educating you and giving you the tools to continue progressing outside of your appointments. The plan of care that is set will be based on what you and your PT decide is best for you.

PATIENT SUCCESS STORIES

Patients have trusted us to provide an exceptional and effective approach to physical therapy.

Eric Vargas was my PT.  He was incredibly knowledgeable, went through exercises and stretches with me, not only telling me what to do but also what muscle groups were being targeted and why.  He truly was a miracle worker.

I’ve been dealing with knee pain for over a year and a half, to the point where at its worst, I didn’t want to move.  I went to countless doctors  appointments, had two MRI’s, went to multiple physical therapists, and got my knee injected way more than I’d ever want to.  I had resigned myself to no more.  No more long walks.  No workouts with impact.  But today I finally ran a full mile without pain and it’s all thanks to Eric.  I could not have done it without him.  He truly is one of the best physical therapist around!!

I was having pretty substantial lower back pain at work for several months, and as a dentist it was difficult to work. I tried going to a chiropractor several times but they only provided short term relief and the pain never fully went away. I went to Dr. Vargas once a week for a month and did my at home physical therapy and my back pain is completely gone. Highly recommend Dr. Vargas.

Dr. Vargas has been a life saver for me!

I came to physical therapy looking for relief from arthritis, degenerative disk and fibromyalgia. I had been to various doctors, pain specialists, chiropractors, massage, and practiced various exercise routines that either didn’t help at all or only made the pain worse. I had major depression and a major lack of motivation.

Then I was referred to physical therapy. From the first visit I could tell that Dr. Vargas sincerely cared about helping me and with each visit I saw improvement. I learned which exercises were helpful and how to work through the pain – and to just keep moving! I had an increase in energy and I actually felt like a door had opened for me. I could finally vacuum an entire floor of my house when before I was lucky to vacuum one room! I could do so many activities that had been lost to me for years! Most importantly, I have more quality time with my family and more confidence in myself. At 65, instead of feeling as if all I had to look forward to was more pain, Dr. Vargas empowered me to take control of my body through learning the correct exercises and how to keep myself motivated.

Thank you, Dr. Vargas!
