Testimonials

“Carol”

I have been the lucky recipient of physical therapy from Dr. Dan Benson for a variety of conditions over the past 8 years. Regardless of the condition, his kind and always positive ways are the best form of motivation for me to successfully follow his exercise prescriptions and achieve great results. Dan saw me through preparation for shoulder surgery and complete recovery of function post surgery. He is a compassionate and caring physician. His functional medicine approach is comprehensive, practical and always tailored to the individual patient. I recommend his practice unconditionally.

“Jason Bak”

I’ve had arch issues from running for the last two years. It’s gotten so bad that I’ve been injured longer than I’ve been healthy for the past two years. Dan has been incredible helpful with understanding how my running form contributed to my arch issues. We’ve been working on changing my running form to reduce the chance of injuries. I highly recommend Dr. Dan Benson for analysis on biomechanics. He has a great eye for seeing what could be improved and filters down his advice to easy-to-understand cues.

“Alexander Nessel”

I recommend Dr. Dan Benson as wholeheartedly as possible for athletes looking to fix any type of injury, or optimize body movement, mobility, and mechanics. I’m in my 30s and very active in physically demanding sports – they’ve helped me through serious hip injury and surgery recovery, along with many other injuries and pains I’ve had over the last 5 years. I’ve been to more physical therapists than I can count and Forefront has given me the best results be far. They’re very patient, do a great job of understanding goals, explaining problems and solutions, and continuously iterating until you’re healthy. I recommend all my friends and family to Forefront when they have injuries and everyone has the same experience – they’re the best!

“Austin Fox”

I’ve seen many physical therapists over the past few years for shoulder and hip labral tears. Dan is by far the most knowledgeable PT I’ve worked with. One of the qualities that sets him apart is his persistence to get his clients actively participating in sports and high adventure activities as fast as possible. I eventually decided to get surgery for my shoulder and he has been helping me regain my range of motion and strength QUICKLY. He doesn’t rush the healing process and is hyper-aware of the abilities of my joints (even more so than me – it’s funny and surprising). He inspires confidence in me to perform movements that I would otherwise be nervous about and, without a doubt, these exercises are leading me to recover rapidly. I’m happy to say that I’ll soon be able to rock climb again, and am already back to mountain biking. It can be tedious to find a good PT, so take my advice – Dan is the real deal.

Our Proven 4-Phase Recovery Program

Pain

It can be frustrating and overwhelming when you’re in pain and don’t know where to turn for help. Our physical therapy experts will work with you one-on-one to identify the root cause of your pain and create a personalized treatment plan that will reduce your pain quickly. We’ll also provide you with helpful resources like exercises and pain reduction tips so you can continue to progress even after leaving our clinic. On average our patients see a significant reduction in pain in 6 visits or less.

Prime

We all know that reducing pain is important, but sometimes it’s hard to stay motivated after the initial relief. It can be tough to keep up the momentum after your pain has subsided. You may feel like you’re stuck in a rut and don’t know how to get moving again. During Phase II, we help you regain your mobility, flexibility, and strength so you can continue on your path to success. With our help, you’ll be primed for future performance and able to prevent injury.

Perform

You’ve been sidelined by an injury and you’re eager to get back to your old self as soon as possible. It’s frustrating when you’re injured and can’t do the things you love. Sitting on the sidelines is hard, especially when everyone else seems to be moving on without you. That’s where our physical therapists come in. We’ll help you rehab your injury so that you can get back to your old self as quickly as possible. With our personalized treatment plans and experienced therapists, we’ll have you feeling like yourself again in no time.

Prevent

You’ve just suffered an injury and the last thing you want to do is go through the pain again. It’s normal to feel concerned that the injury will occur again. In fact, most people worry about this very thing. That’s why our physical therapists make sure that you are equipped with the tools needed to prevent any future injury. We’ll help you recover quickly and safely so that you can get back to your life as soon as possible.

He has given me clear and manageable exercises that have helped with recovery. He came recommended by a friend, and I’m grateful for that introduction.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I expect during physical therapy sessions?

Physical therapy sessions typically involve an assessment of your condition, manual techniques to improve mobility and flexibility, individualized exercises and activities to help you reach your goals, education on how to prevent further injury or pain, and instruction on proper posture, body mechanics and other lifestyle changes.

Do I need a referral from my doctor before attending Physical Therapy?

Patients needing physical therapy can get evaluations and treatments directly from a licensed physical therapist without obtaining a doctor’s prescription or referral with some provisions.

What do I need to wear or bring with me?

You should dress in comfortable, loose clothing that allows you to move easily and doesn’t restrict circulation. Depending on your condition, your physical therapist may also recommend special shoes or a brace. You should also bring any paperwork related to your medical history, including x-rays, ultrasounds, and doctor’s notes.

Is there anything I can do before my appointment to prepare?

Yes! Make sure you arrive for your session well-rested so that you can give it your full attention and energy. It is also helpful if you keep track of how much pain medication (if any) you take prior to the appointment so that the physical therapist can adjust the intensity of treatment accordingly.

How long will my physical therapy sessions last?

Sessions typically last 30-60 minutes depending on your condition and the types of techniques used. Your physical therapist will give you an estimate when you first arrive for your appointment.

Are there any exercises I can do at home between appointments to help improve my condition?

Yes! Your physical therapist may provide specific exercise recommendations for you to try in between visits, which will help speed up your recovery and progress faster toward reaching your goals. It’s important to follow these carefully and always check with your PT before starting a new exercise program if you have any questions or concerns.

What if I have questions after my physical therapy session?

Your physical therapist should be available to answer any questions or concerns you may have about your treatment plan before and after each visit. You can also contact the clinic directly for further assistance. We want you to get the most out of every session!

Will insurance cover my physical therapy?

It depends on your insurance plan. Most plans cover some or all of the costs associated with physical therapy, but you should check with your provider to determine coverage and any associated fees.

How often will I need to attend physical therapy sessions?

The frequency of visits will depend on your individual goals and condition, but typically it is recommended that patients attend 2-3 times per week for a minimum of 4-6 weeks in order to maximize results. Your therapist will provide more details during your initial appointment.

How long will it take for me to see results?

Every person’s situation is unique; therefore the amount of time needed to reach goals varies. With commitment and dedication from both you and your physical therapist, you can expect to start seeing results within a few weeks. The more positive lifestyle changes you make, the faster your progress will be!

Will my physical therapist be able to answer any questions I have about my condition?

Yes! Your physical therapist should be available to discuss any concerns or questions you have regarding your condition or treatment plan. Don’t hesitate to bring up any issues that may arise during the course of therapy.

What if I feel too much pain during a session?

If at any time during your physical therapy session you experience increased pain, it’s important to let your therapist know so they can adjust the intensity or technique as necessary. Your therapist will work with you to make sure that treatment is comfortable and effective for you.

How will I know when I no longer need physical therapy?

Your physical therapist should be able to provide guidance on when it is appropriate to stop attending physical therapy sessions based on your progress, goals, and overall health status. It’s important to listen to your therapist and continue with treatment until they feel you are ready to move on.
