Our Treatment Philosophy

Get Physical Rx | Physical Therapy & Balance | Spring, Houston, The Woodlands

Each patient’s Physical Therapy Plan of Care (POC) is unique. We focus on balance, movement and strength. We develop a unique plan according to your presentation and our assessment of your current conditions. Your POC is fit and tailored for you. We want to not just manage pain, but help you enter back into regular life pain free.


Your initial evaluation focuses on your diagnosis and the part of the body that needs treatment. We’ll collect subjective info first. This includes the how and when of the injury, pain level, limitations, as well as learning more about your medical history. We’ll then collect objective information. This includes an assessment, understanding your range of motion, as well as special test to see how you present. From their we we develop your Physical Therapy Plan of Care. This will include your assessment and frequency and duration of care. After your initial duration of care we will do a reevaluation to determine your progress and if any additional care is needed.

Balance / Proprioception Training

Balance / Proprioception Training Balance Therapy Spring Texas
Proprioception is your inherent ability to sense your body’s movement, location and action. When you sprain a joint, like an ankle, it looses proprioception, or the sense of joint position.

Cupping Therapy

Cupping Therapy Houston, Spring, The Woodlands

Cupping is an ancient healing therapy which can help with pain, blood flow, inflammation. The air inside the cup creates a vacuum which causes your blood vessels to expand. This causes the body to send more blood vessels to the area, stimulating the natural healing process. The cup remains on the skin for up to 3 minutes and results in a red circle. Cupping became more well known after the 2016 Olympic Games as spectators began to notice the red circles on athletes bodies.

Myofascial Release

Myofascial Release

Myofascial tissue is the tough membranes that wrap, support and connect your muscles. Sensitivity and tightness in your myofascial tissues can cause chronic pain called Myofascial Pain Syndrome. Myofascial Release focuses on easing the tightness, improving soft tissue function, improving muscle tone, decreasing abnormal movement, and increasing mobility. Your therapist will locate stiff and tight areas called trigger points and add pressure and release pressure. Often these trigger points aren’t located near the actual pain, but do contribute to it.

Conditions Treated: You have myofascial tissue all over your body, so treatment areas vary. Conditions it's known to help with include: neck pain, back pain, Cerebral Palsy, Carpal Tunnel, bladder problems, cervical and lumbar injuries, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, bulging or herniated discs, headaches and migraines, plantar fasciitis, scar tissue build up, sciatica issues and more.
