WHAT WE TREAT

Click on each tab to learn more!

Back

One of the most common sites of pain! MRI’s and X-rays often show bulged discs and arthritis throughout the spine, but no worries, we can help.  Learn More

Neck

Neck pain can be scary. Not only does it effect they way you move and sleep, but it can also cause symptoms into your back, shoulder, arm, and hand.  Learn More

Shoulder

The shoulder is complex! Don’t worry, most of the pain or limitations in movement that you might be experiencing are very treatable.   Learn More

Elbow

Including (but not limited to) our golfers, tennis players, and handy men/women. Elbow pain can be debilitating when trying to perform your everyday household and recreational activities.  Learn More

Hip

The hip is an amazing structure. Like the shoulder, there’s a lot going on in this area. A full evaluation and treatment towards your deficits will get you back to doing the things you love.  Learn More

Knee

Very common site for pain. The knee has a lot of influence from the hip, the foot, and the ankle, so there’s quite a bit going on. Lucky for you, we know just how to get things working smoothly again.  Learn More

Ankle/Foot

The foundation of our entire body. The foot and ankle work very closely together. Pain and dysfunction in this area are hard to ignore. Learn More

And More!

Don’t see your specific pain site here? No worries. Pain is complex. Come see us so that we can get to the root cause of your problem.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR FIRST VISIT

Step 1: Dialogue

Every initial evaluation starts out with a deep dive into who you are as a person, what you enjoy doing, and a history of your current pain or dysfunction. This is without a doubt the most important part of our evaluation, and what sets the stage for our exam and treatment of you as an individual.

Step 2:  Testing

Now that we’ve gained valuable insight into who you are and what you’re dealing with, we will run you through a series of tests and measures. This portion of our exam is very investigative in nature, as we will be trying to see how your current pain or dysfunction is influenced. How does it respond to certain movements, loads, or other activities we put it through? This will give us a solid baseline of where you’re at.

Step 3: Treatment

After we get through the dialogue and testing portion of our exam, we will move into treatment. We will now have a good understanding of the specific joints, muscles, and tissues that are involved. Tailored manual therapy and exercise will be given at this point, and we’ll likely start seeing improvements in pain and movement during this first treatment session.

Step 4:  Plan

Your first visit will end with a recap of what was discovered during the dialogue, testing, and treatment portions of your exam. Finally, we will set you up with a home program consisting of specific exercises, mobility drills, and soft tissue work that you can do on your own in between your future appointments. By the end of your appointment you should have a clear understanding of what’s going on, what we’re going to do to fix it, and how long we foresee it taking to resolve.

What Makes TrueFix Physical Therapy Different

One on One For A Full Hour With Your Doctor, Every Visit

To ensure that you receive the highest level of care possible, each treatment you will spend one hour of high quality, individualized, 1 on 1 care from your designated doctor of physical therapy. You will never be treated by a rehab aid or assistant.

24 Hour Response Time

When we say we’re 100% committed to your entire rehab process, we mean it. During your rehab process and in between visits you will have direct access to your physical therapists if you have questions.

You’re More Than A Diagnosis or Injury

At TrueFix Physical Therapy we treat the body as a whole. Through our extensive training and experience, we are aware that the location of your pain may not reflect the actual cause of your discomfort. Not only that, but we want to identify and target any weak areas to help bullet proof the rest of the body and decrease the likelihood of sustaining injuries in the future.

You’ll Never Get a Bill From Us Months Later After Your Visit

Many physical therapy clinics will send out a bill months after your rehabilitation is complete. With TrueFix Physical Therapy you will never be surprised by a bill you were not anticipating.

We Understand the Demands of Your Life and/or Sport

We walk the talk! As physical therapists who exercise and participate in a large variety of activities/sports ourselves we understand what it takes. While many physicians and physical therapists will simply tell you to stop your desired activity we understand that avoiding the things that you enjoy most because of an injury is no way to live. Because of our background, many times we are able to find ways and make modifications to allow you to continue to participate in your desired activity without having to take time off while we help you rehabilitate from your injury.

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!!

Katie H.

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.

Austin R.

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.

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!
