Central Wisconsin’s best physical therapy and sports training ... together.

Get Back To Doing The Things You Love

Stevens Point Orthopedics’ highly skilled staff provides great physical therapy services to residents of Stevens Point, Plover, Wisconsin Rapids, Wausau, and surrounding areas.

Our physical therapists customize a plan to help:

  • Relieve pain
  • Improve strength
  • Increase level of function
  • Prevent future injury

… and get you all the way back to doing the things you love!

Treatment can include functional resistive exercises, stretching, hands-on manual therapy, and other specialized regimens.

Achieve Your Goals

Our patient-centered approach to physical therapy means we exhaust every avenue to help individuals achieve their fitness or rehabilitation goals, whether that’s gardening, running a marathon, or getting back to the playing field.

We treat everyone from adolescents to adults, surgical to non-surgical diagnoses, and competitive athletes to folks who like to take it easy. At any given time, a patient recovering from a hip replacement may be working next to a local high-school athlete.

We integrate function into your physical therapy. Treatment sessions are varied, making each visit interesting and productive. The bright, energetic clinic space with state-of-the-art equipment creates a fun, positive atmosphere for each session.

Partnering With Your Physician

Though you can receive treatment anywhere, choosing on-site physical therapy means you’re partnering with your physician to ensure that everyone’s on the same page. Our goal is to provide the finest, most professional care. Trust us with your physical therapy … you’ll know you’re in the right place!

Stevens Point Orthopedics Physical Therapy accepts most insurance plans and participates with many insurance providers. We recommend that you follow up with your insurance provider independently to ensure what your specific plan covers.

The amount paid out-of-pocket depends on your individual insurance plan and coverage. We’ll gladly verify your insurance and explain your benefits and financial responsibility before your first visit. If you don’t have insurance coverage, ask about our self-pay options.

Depending on your insurance, you may be required to pay a co-pay. You will be responsible to pay the co-pay at every visit.

Bring your game to the next level with our movement analysis system. Our trained clinicians work with you to unlock your performance potential, using high-speed cameras that break down your movements at up to 200 frames/second.

After gaining a comprehensive understanding of your performance history and goals, we record your movements and create a report. Sixteen sensors capture motion, and eight sensors monitor muscle strength. Combined, they create a digital 3D representation of your full body and provide the most accurate visualization of your mechanics.

This video and sensor data lets us detect inefficiencies we can improve with corrective and strengthening exercises. We specialize in walking and running evaluations, but the system also captures high-speed motions like a golf swing or a baseball/softball pitch. Best of all, the system is portable, so we can bring it to where you practice.
