Improving Life
Restoring Function


Many people are unable to achieve symmetry in their body because muscles are not working efficiently on both sides of the body. There is a high probability that one muscle group may be very tight, while the opposing muscle group may be weak. Once identified this muscle imbalance can be corrected to allow you to maintain neutral position and alignment in the body.

Our unique and innovative approach as premeir Burley physical therapists allows us to identify the cause of pain or loss of function and to correct faulty movement patterns more quickly and with fewer treatments than other physical therapy approaches. This means you are back to life quicker and with less cost to you. Treatments focus on teaching you, the patient, how to correct your own body in a gentle, natural, and pain-free method that provides rapid and long-lasting results.


Why Choose Us

Our Unique Approach to Physical Therapy

ProActive Physical Therapy in Burley is 1 of only 62 clinics in the United States fully certified in Advanced Postural Restoration techniques. This allows us to go way beyond traditional physical therapy in the treatment of challenging pain and performance patients. In fact, we have 20 years of combined experience performing this type of specialized therapy on a wide variety of patients.

Our musculoskeletal assessment goes beyond the standard one and two-dimensional analysis of flexibility and strength to examine the three-dimensional orientation and join position of the pelvic girdle, both lower extremities, the spine, the rib cage, and both upper extremities. We also examine patterns of diaphragm movement, respiratory mechanics, abdominal integration, and rib function related to these problems.

Our attention to positional alignment and patterns of muscle overuse and weakness unique to each side of the body allows us to create a program that actually decreases chronic pain early in a program instead of the frustrating increase in pain so often experienced with traditional approaches that overlook these details.

One-on-one evaluation and treatment by one of ProActive’s specialty trained therapists give providers an additional treatment option for complex and challenging patients that can often be misunderstood, improperly diagnosed, and insufficiently treated with traditional therapy.
