- Gloria HPhysical therapy with Ryan was more help than I thought would be possible. When I first started I didn't think I would be able to continue working. Tendon issues in both feet made standing 10 hours a day doing factory work was almost impossible. Ryan kept the therapy interesting and challenging. If you are willing to do the work it will pay off in the end. Danielle and Austin were a great asset to assisting Ryan. I would highly recommend Ryan to anyone for any issue.
- Emory PRyan, Kenzie and Austin are beyond amazing. I’ve dreaded physical therapy in the past, but the moment I walked though the door they made me feel comfortable and at ease with the whole process. They’re very thorough and explain everything in detail to help you understand the reasoning behind the different exercises and what outcome you can strive to achieve both at therapy and at home. I highly recommend them to anyone in need of physical therapy and will always come to him for future needs. Thank you again for everything.
- Lisa SRyan's expertise in his field becomes apparent the moment you walk through the doors. He doesn't just give you random exercises to complete, but rather makes your therapy session extremely personal to your own healing process. Ryan thoroughly explains the "why" behind each exercise giving the patient a clearer mental picture of why it needs to be done and helps the patient execute it correctly. Ryan listens to your concerns and modifies your program to meet your needs. I personally liked that Ryan has a "whole body" mentality when it comes to rehabilitation. He understands the connection between compensating for one body part and injuring another and he knows how to fix the problem! His staff is friendly, helpful and accommodating. I cannot recommend Ryan Strasser highly enough for any physical therapy needs you may have!
Ryan Strasser, DPT utilizes the principles of Applied Functional Science (AFS). AFS is more effective than standard physical therapy because it is an integrative, holistic approach to evaluation and rehabilitation. The whole body and how its movements are correlated are considered in order to focus on the root causes of any pain or injury instead of merely the symptoms. By applying these principles, patients have experienced accelerated results that are measurable and sustainable.
What is Applied Functional Science?
AFS is the combination of sciences that allows for purposeful movement. It is the convergence of Physical Sciences (the world we live in), Biological Sciences (the miracle of the human body), and Behavioral Sciences (the power of the mind and spirit). These sciences are the foundation to AFS’s Principle-Strategy-Technique Process, and allow for the best, most effective and efficient movements to be applied to any and all individuals based on specific needs, wants, and goals.
