Physical Therapy in Rhode Island and Massachusetts

A life without pain or limitation is within your reach.

When movement hurts or is difficult, it can feel like your life has to be lived around your pain, instead of being able to do what you want to do. Highbar has made it our mission to set you up for success by transforming the way physical therapy care is delivered, so you can feel better, move freely, and live fully.

Through patient education and evidence-based techniques, patients work with their physical therapists to develop a plan that allows them to reach their health, wellness, and fitness goals. Your physical therapist is committed to getting you back to what you love, so you can get back to the activities that make you, you.

A place for everyone to come back stronger.

Physical therapy is for all people. It is a holistic, non-invasive discipline aimed at improving movement, reducing pain, restoring function, and preventing physical disability. Physical therapists are movement experts who understand how injuries, conditions, surgeries, and other diagnoses can make a difference in your quality of life.

If you move, physical therapy is for you. Although most people tend to think of physical therapy for post-surgical or injury rehabilitation, chronic pain, disease, or disability, there’s so many ways physical therapy can be used to transform your physical health.

Physical therapists are experts in movement and are trained to uncover issues, diagnose conditions, create a treatment plan, and educate patients on how to take care of their bodies. Some of the most common reasons why people visit a physical therapist are:

Back Pain
Neck Pain and Headaches
Sprains and Strains
Sports Injuries
Arthritis and Osteoarthritis
Pelvic Pain and Dysfunction
Pregnancy and Postnatal Care
Dizziness and Vertigo
Chronic and Persistent Pain
Occupational/Work-related Injuries
Pre-surgical and post-surgical care

Questions about Physical Therapy? We’ve got answers.

Tell me more about what a physical therapy treatment looks like.

A full and complete recovery process can only happen when looking at all aspects of a patient’s health and wellness. Physical therapists are trained to understand how many other areas of a patient’s life, like sleep, nutrition, and stress levels can all work together to impact their recovery. Just as no two patients are exactly the same, no two physical therapy care plans will look identical! At Highbar, that’s how physical therapy works. We use several treatment types and modalities to help every patient meet their movement or function goals.
