Why Choose Us For Physical Therapy in Fort Myers, FL?

Why Choose Us For Physical Therapy in Fort Myers, FL?

We fix the cause, not just symptoms

When you’re in pain, stopping that pain and getting back to a “normal life” becomes your top priority.

You may have suffered an injury. It’s possible you had recent surgery or perhaps you enduring a degenerative condition like arthritis.

No matter what’s causing your pain, you need answers, and you need a clear path to a full recovery & while there are several options available to you for treatment, knowing the correct option for you can be challenging and confusing.

We understand.

Thus, if you’re looking for a permanent and non-invasive solution near you, then consider seeing one of our physical therapist doctors at our Fort Myers or Cape Coral, Florida office.

Physical therapy is not just for athletes. Although physical therapy is often associated with athletics due to the prevalence of injuries sustained by participants, it is not entirely a sports-specific specialty.

In fact, physical therapists help more ordinary people over the age of 40 than they do younger athletes, in many cases. However, we serve youth, high school, collegiate, and professional athletes as well as individuals over the age of 40 at our clinic.

Our Approach and Treatments

Our Approach and Treatments

the gray method

An approach invented by our owner, Dr. Scott Gray. The premise behind everything focuses on pinpointing the original CAUSE of your injury, pain, or stiffness, rather than just addressing the symptoms.

dry needling fort myers

Dry needling is an advanced technique that uses very small needles to puncture the skin around stiff muscles. This treatment is a safe and effective way to eliminate pain, muscle tension, stiffness, and muscle spasms.

active release technique

A soft tissue mobilization technique that treats musculoskeletal conditions with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia (connective tissue), and nerves. This promotes blood flow and faster healing of injuries.

manual therapy in fort myers

Manual physical therapy can combat some of the most common musculoskeletal injuries or conditions non-invasively. It mostly includes kneading and manipulation of muscles, joint mobilization, and joint manipulation.

functinal exercise


A rehabilitation technique that helps improves functional performance through activities directed at a loss or restriction of mobility, strength, balance, or coordination.

BFRT forces the blood to stay in the muscle longer, expediting the process of muscle fatigue and failure. The process stimulates the body’s ability to repair the muscle fibers, so recovery takes less time.

FAQs About Physical Therapy at Back In Motion

FAQs About Physical Therapy at Back In Motion

Anyone who expects miracles to happen, have their pains abolished overnight, and doesn’t follow instructions from their Specialty Trained Physical Therapist.

A specialty-trained physical therapist:

  • Is able to communicate with the patient.
  • Can accurately diagnose your problems and concerns.
  • Has manual or “hands-on” skills.
  • Gets you better sooner rather than later and tells you the truth.
  • Know when to refer to another practitioner.
  • Specializes in a few key areas rather than doing everything and, therefore, has more knowledge and training in that particular area which helps patients get better faster.

No. There are no guarantees in physical therapy, just as there are no guarantees that a pill or a surgery is going to relieve your pain. As a matter of fact, there are no guarantees in life in general!

However, we will guarantee that we will try to help you by providing the very best physical therapy care possible. I will tell you from practical experience that 95% of all patients get better with physical therapy if they are committed to healing and follow their treatment programs as prescribed.

However, there are some patients who do not recover with physical therapy – either due to the severity of their injury or from lack of commitment to treatment. If you are not making progress with therapy, or if we do not think you will benefit from therapy in the first place, we will tell you – and refer you to the appropriate medical professional.

No. Just call and schedule your appointment! In the state of Florida, physician referrals are not required for Physical Therapy services.

The truth of the matter is this: the best physical therapists usually work in private practices because they can deliver individualized care specific to YOU, the patient. In most hospitals and larger healthcare facilities, many patients get the same exercise and treatments, regardless of their condition.

This results in more visits (20 to 30 or more) with higher co-pays, which can average about $60 per visit. Alternatively, you could see an EXPERT physical therapist and be done with as little as 10 visits.

As hospital systems continue to morph into behemoth one-stop healthcare entities, they tend to lose individualized focus as they train their eyes on the bottom line – and quality of care and individual patient attention suffers as a result. As a small private practice, we MUST get patients better or we go out of business.

If your problem consists of aches and pains in the following areas of the body, then physical therapy is
highly likely to be beneficial to you:

  • Lower Back or Sciatica
  • Foot & Ankle
  • Neck & Shoulder
  • Knee Pain
  • Hip Pain
  • Pelvic Floor & Woman’s Health
  • Sports & Athletic Injuries
  • Unsteady Balance
  • Whiplash or Motor Vehicle
  • Tension Headaches & TMJ

According to Dr. Google, physical therapy is, “the treatment of any nerve or musculoskeletal ailment, pain, injury, or deformity by physical methods such as manipulation, exercise, myofascial release, dry needling, and an array of other conservative treatment methods rather than by drugs or surgery.”

According to your EXPERT Doctors of Physical, Therapy, “physical therapy” is a proven strategy for first easing the worries and concerns of people suffering from muscle, nerve, and joint (bone) issues which prevents them from staying active, living pain-free, enjoying hobbies such as golf and long walks with their spouse, or for athletes recovering from an injury.

The common symptoms and pains that most patients have are:

  • Lower back or neck pain
  • Sciatica
  • Muscle and joint aches
  • Pain and stiffness
  • Difficulty bending, squatting, lifting, twisting, or walking
  • Living a lifestyle dictated by and in accommodation to their pains
  • Muscle weakness and tightness
  • Pain during active activities such as exercising
  • Pain during or due to sports and athletic injuries
