Performance Physical Therapy in Waukee

At Fortitude & Freedom, we don't just help clients get out of pain, we help them perform their best.  Whether that is in daily life, in the gym or in their sport! 


What is Performance Therapy?

Performance Therapy is physical therapy with long term outcomes in mind.  We don't settle for merely getting rid of pain, that's only Stage 1 of the recovery process.  We also correct the underlying cause of the pain (Stage 2), return to prior level of function and activity (Stage 3), and provide maintenance and injury prevention services so the pain or injury never comes back again (Stage 4).

What is Performance Therapy Like?

Performance Therapy goes beyond basic corrective exercise.  We strive to improve mobility, strength and aerobic capacity by lifting heavier loads and getting the heart rate elevated to improve overall fitness.

  • Neck pain
