Kevin Bird, LPT

Kevin Bird, LPT

My mission is to provide one-on-one therapy with an emphasis on not just treating the symptoms, but correcting the underlying cause of the problem, while incorporating education to understand the problem and prevent future injury. I believe pain free movement is a balance of strength, flexibility, and tissue mobility. These components must be addressed to experience normal movement and return to a state of wellness.

My mission is to provide well rounded, exceptional care to all patients in order to improve function and quality of life. Pain and dysfunction can prevent patients from working, participating in hobbies, and spending quality time with their families.

I seek to work with individuals to educate and empower them to take control of their care, overcome obstacles, and prevent future injuries.
