AZOPT Tempe Now Treating Physical Therapy Patients!

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

Therapists 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.

By employing only licensed physical therapists to provide our physical therapy care, our patients experience:

  • Higher Quality of Service
  • Continuum of Care
  • More Hands on Therapy
  • Ultimately, less visits

We look forward to helping you with all your physical therapy needs!
