Our collaborative team atmosphere allows you to receive the best of what each therapist has to offer, enabling you to enjoy a lifetime of fitness.

Each day the team at TLPT starts their day with one mission: to help active individuals reach their performance goals. By treating our patients with the respect they deserve, we can create an environment that enables them to far surpass their current levels of fitness and athleticism. Since 1987 this powerful mission statement has helped thousands of individuals return to their desired level of wellness, stay injury free after rehab and excel during performance training.
Our passion is our most valuable characteristic. Passion cannot be learned and it cannot be taught – you either have it or you don’t. At Timberlane Physical Therapy, not only do we have it, but we love it and we share it with our clients. We are passionate about what we do for you because we are just like you. We are active people who love to move, providing services to active people who need to move better. Our passion for the services we provide is simply obvious, as it’s the largest part of who we are.
