Is all Physical Therapy the same?
No. Physical therapy clinics are unique and different based on the types of patients seen, philosophies of the clinicians, and experience and skill level of the therapists. You can tell a lot about how therapy is delivered in a facility by how it is set up. Education is what you receive in school. Wisdom and skill are what you acquire after school. All physical therapists receive a standardized physical therapy education in school to treat multiple diseases and areas of the body. After school we develop areas of expertise and skills in areas of special interest. Most therapists are generalists, but some specialize in pediatrics, geriatrics, hands, neurology, orthopedics, sports medicine, respiratory, cardiology, etc.
How is Biosports different?
We believe what C.S. Lewis said in 1940, that “The magic is not in the medicine, but in the patient’s body.” As experts in structural and functional biomechanics, we analyze functional movements and structural biomechanics in ways that other physical therapists do not. By treating the causes as well as the symptoms, we believe you will have the best opportunity to normalize movement patterns, enhance healing and prevent the re-occurrence of pain.
Biosports has therapists:
- With advanced degrees in Physical Therapy

- Advanced training in functional biomechanics from the Gary Institute (GIFT, CAFS, 3D MAPS)
- Who have advanced degrees in Athletic Training
- Who are national instructors in biomechanics, gait, orthotics, and function
- Who have written and/or assisted in the publication of books, chapters, and articles on gait, function, and functional testing
