- Dave DRyan was very thorough throughout the evaluation and treatment plan development process. He consistently let me know what we were trying to accomplish and how we were going to get there. I would recommend Ryan to anyone that is committed to dealing with their physical issues and implementing a solid path to improved performance. My experience was very positive and produced a great final result.
- Dani SI am an endurance runner and triathlete- 5 years ago I had a running Injury concerning my hip. I tried physical therapy at a different location with some relief, but the pain would keep coming back. I thought this was as good as it was going to get and my hip was going to be an issue from now on. Fast forward a few years and I heard about the techniques Ryan uses in his practice and I decided to give physical therapy another chance. I cant believe the difference!!! Not only did Ryan help heal my hip injury and get me back to running pain free, but he also explained what was causing pain, how we were going to treat it, and how I can maintain the strength and mobility necessary to continue in the sports I love without pain or injury. He is very easy to work with- he answered all of my questions, made sure I understood all aspects of the therapy, and I actually looked forward to our sessions as he made each visit enjoyable. I highly recommend Ryan!
- Kris BRyan is an exceptional physical therapist! The best I’ve ever been to. He takes the time to explain what your problem is and how to correct it, for the best result. He is extremely encouraging and believes in your ability to accomplish all that you can to help yourself. Together with the rest of his staff, they keep the atmosphere lighthearted while remaining professional. He is a rare find and I highly recommend him. You won’t be disappointed.
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.
