Here's What They Are Saying About Us



The process begins by giving you 110% before you even step through our door.  Through either a phone consultation or Discovery Visit, we will determine if we can help you.  We can then determine if we are the best fit to help you with your problem.  We want to help you make the important decision of finding the best physical therapist a little easier for you, so you don't waste time and money at the wrong place.  The right physical therapy environment is crucial for your progress and we are committed to helping people like you make the best decisions when it comes to your health.

Once we have taken you on as a client, we will integrate all of your goals and concerns into a holistic treatment program.  You will spend 100% of your treatment time with your therapist so you can get more done at each session.   And we PROMISE that you will never be passed off to an assistant or technician to do things with little value, or that you can easily do on your own at home.   This is how we get the current you out of pain, and the old you back FAST.

Dr. Riva is passionate about helping people move pain-free and optimally.  He understands and is sensitive to the emotional toll that accompanies not being able to perform daily activities of living.  He inspires to change the general public’s perception of physical therapy as only sought out when already in pain and he hopes to promote a shift in reactive physical therapy utilization to a more proactive approach.
