Our Beginning

 
 

Covey Physical Therapy started as Ann Covey Physical Therapy in 2006.


I had worked in both clinic and home health settings for different companies. With home health agencies, patients are required to be home bound, which means they have to be discharged from care when they start getting out on any regular frequency, so as a therapist it was hard to go into their homes and encourage them to get back to normal function, but "oh by the way" you have to be home bound. Nothing helps patients get back to regular routine as starting to actually practice those routines. If a patient is discharged from a home health agency then referred to an outpatient clinic, that would mean a change in therapist. Having the same therapist is essential for continuity of care and overall patient trust. There was an obvious missing piece to the puzzle, Ann Covey Physical Therapy was born. As an "outpatient" provider we are allowed to see patients wherever meets the need, home, gym, work, pool, or school, no home bound requirement! 

Aquatic Therapy
In 2011, we recognized a need for aquatic therapy as many patients have difficulty with pure land based programs. Patients may have pain, balance, or strength issues that require the buoyancy of the water. Our athletes get a much higher level workout and functional training that is used with professional teams to enhance performance due to the water's multi directional resistance. Post surgical patients experience less pain and swelling due to the hydrostatic pressure of the water. 

Our Name Change 
We have continued to experience wonderful growth and found the need to incorporate in Jan. 2012 making the name change to Covey Physical Therapy. We have also added Occupational Therapy. 

Continued Growth
The next logical step was opening our Hermon clinic after recognizing a need for therapy in the Hermon area. Our new space opened in Feb. 2012. Our mission is to give quality hands on care with one on one attention. Patients are not just a number at our practice. We strive to listen to our patients, coordinate care with other providers as needed, and modify treatments as needed to get the very best results.

Our Team

We are patient goal oriented. We are very interested in what our patients experiences are with us and strive to make every patient feel comfortable and at ease.  

We strive to hire and maintain top notch therapists who have lots of experience under their belts, and who maintain a great understanding of anatomy and physiology as well as neurology and its relation to functional abilities.
