The Bridge Program

Don't just get back. Get all the way back.
Request An Appointment
Lots of orthopedic providers claim they can get you back to daily activities. But there’s a difference between being able to perform an activity and being able to perform it the way you did before injury.

That’s why Stevens Point Orthopedics has teamed up with D1 Training-Stevens Point and Sweet Spot Nutrition to create Bridge — a program designed to guide you back to your pre-injury movement and activity.

Kris Riggs Physical Therapist

Kris, one of SPO’s skilled physical therapists, has just helped you complete your last physical therapy session. While you feel a lot better, you don’t feel you’re all the way back to where you were before you were injured.

If you feel lost or don’t know what to do next, fear not! The Bridge program lets you take that next step after physical therapy, and guides you as you continue your fitness journey.

When you’re in the Bridge program, your physical therapist will work with D1’s skilled trainers on an exercise program tailored to you and your physical-fitness goals.
