Physical Therapy in Tempe Now Available from AzOPT

Experience the AzOPT Difference from the Best Tempe Physical Therapists

The AzOPT Tempe approach to physical therapy treatment is to provide an environment that promotes healing and encourages active involvement from each patient. We do not pack our physical therapists’ schedules by using techs to guide our patients’ experience. Therefore, our physical therapists spend more time with each patient utilizing techniques proven to work faster. Our physical therapists prefer to use their best tool – their hands – to reduce overall pain, release scar tissue, and improve blood flow at the tissue level.

Our Tempe physiotherapists will also educate patients about their specific condition and provide them with the tools and resources to help heal.

“No Techs, No Aides, No Assistants” is our commitment that each patient will be treated by a licensed physical therapist at every visit – so patients can rest assured their needs are addressed at EVERY session.
