Spinal and Extremity Rehabilitation Program
At Folsom Physical Therapy, we are recognized nationally and internationally for our mastery in spine and extremity treatment and have provided continuing education courses for physical therapists treating musculoskeletal issues since 1981. The goal of our Spinal and Extremity Rehabilitation Program is to help you return to your pre-injury status as quickly as possible.
How do our physical therapists help with spinal and extremity rehabilitation?
The evaluation and treatment of musculoskeletal issues has been the foundation of our practice since opening in the early 1980s. Our expertise is grounded in our extensive exposure to the world’s three predominant musculoskeletal manual treatment and exercise concepts: the Kaltenborn-Evjenth manual therapy concept, the Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation therapeutic exercise concept, and the Maitland manual therapy concept.
During your first appointment, one of our physical therapists will evaluate your involved tissues and movement dysfunctions and then recommend an appropriate treatment plan. Treatment may range from gentle massage to full engagement in a therapeutic exercise program. Once treatment minimizes inflammation and tissue dysfunction, continued hands-on treatment and exercise will begin to restore your overall fitness, mobility, and tolerance for activity.

Payment and Insurance Information
The level of service provided at Folsom Physical Therapy (FPT) cannot be delivered within the constraints of the insurance industry. While we are in-network providers for Medicare, FPT is out-of-network with all other insurance carriers.
Self pay clients pay at the time of service and FPT then provides them a superbill to submit to their HSA plan or insurance carrier for reimbursement. Some insurance carriers may require a doctor’s referral to qualify for reimbursement.
What Our Clients Say
This is a great physical therapy group for any problem in the field. Absolutely the best for back problems. My wife and I who are in our 80’s have been going there on and off for over 11 years and have so far avoided back surgery for known significant lumbar back problems and have stayed very active.
I have been going to Folsom Physical Therapy for over 7 years now to treat a central nervous system problem and spinal cord injury. I receive treatments as well as attending group workout classes every week. The staff is super knowledgeable and friendly. I could barely walk when I first started and they helped me get back on my feet and back to full time work. I don’t know where I would be without all the weekly support from all the staff at FPT. Thank you!!!
I have been coming to FPT off and on for about 15 years for various back and neck issues. Tim’s expertise, compassion and encouragement has helped me tremendously over the years. His treatments and techniques for training at home have given me the confidence and ability to live my life doing the activities I enjoy without pain. I cannot say enough great things about my experiences at FPT. Everyone from the therapists to the office staff are always very professional and welcoming. They make you feel like part of the FPT family. I would give FPT 5/5 stars!!
