Professional Philosophy

Primal Strength Physical Therapy's (PSPT) mission is to give personalized 1 on 1 care to unlock your full potential, restore your functional movement and abolish pain. PSPT is not your "typical" PT practice. Dr. Meghan Helwig does not just look at the site of pain, she looks at the whole body and utilizes a thorough history to develop a plan of action. Being a competitive athlete herself she understands the demands of your training and fitness lifestyle. She will partner with your to restore movement, prevent injuries and improve performance by identifying the source of the problem and not just treating the symptoms.
