We assess and create customized physical routines and plans for each patient’s individual needs, using different activities and exercises to help with recovery.

We aim to boost not just physical health but also overall happiness, building strength, hope, and a brighter view of life.

The Link Between Physical Health and Addiction Recovery

As mentioned, substance abuse is really tough on your body. It can cause muscular, cardiovascular, and immune system problems that can be detrimental to your health. These issues are not just side effects; they also make it harder to recover fully because they impact how you feel mentally and emotionally.

At Southwest Family Physical Therapy, we believe that getting better isn’t just about stopping substance use. We know that both physical health and mental wellness are important in recovery.

We use a complete approach that understands fixing both body and mind is key to long-term success. Our physical therapy is carefully structured to meet every patient’s specific needs on their healing journey.
