About Arizona Orthopedic Physical Therapy (AzOPT)
AZOPT Buckeye only employs licensed physical therapists to provide treatment to our patients. We can restore function, reduce or eliminate pain, and most importantly, help our patients return to the things they need and love to do. Our Buckeye physical therapy programs are tailored to the individual needs of each patient.
That's The AzOPT Difference - OPT for Better Quality.
“No Techs, No Aides, No Assistants” is our commitment that each patient will be treated by a licensed physical therapist at every visit – so patients can rest assured their needs are addressed at EVERY session.
Higher Quality of Service
Today’s physical therapist is required to complete a graduate degree from an accredited education program before taking the national licensure exam that allows them to practice. By comparison, there are no educational guidelines for physical therapy techs. Tech can be an individual with a basic certification or a high school student aspiring to be a physical therapist.
Continuum of Care
We never “hand off” our patients to less educated staff to guide the patient’s experience. AzOPT therapists are in direct control of all the manual therapy and exercise throughout a session, giving us the ability to adjust programs in real time to meet goals. Only a licensed physical therapist, not a tech, has this ability.
More Hands-on Therapy
By not packing our schedules like other clinics, AzOPT therapists can spend more time one-on-one with each patient, utilizing our expertise and passion for manual therapy. This unique approach provides optimal results and returns patients to Feel Better! faster.
Ultimately, fewer visits
The AzOPT Difference improves efficiency and maximizes the result of each visit. This translates to less time, less money, and a faster, safer return to life! AzOPT patients report faster recovery times, stronger healing, and reduced instances of re-injury.
