Physical vs Performance Therapy: What’s Best for You?

Do you want to feel better, increase your mobility fluidity, and improve your overall movement performance? Of course, you do. Your next step towards your movement evolution is deciding which of our 5-star services best suits your needs —  Physical Therapy or Return to Play & Sports.

What’s the difference between Physical Therapy or Return to Play & Sports? This is a great question, and it’s really important that you understand so you can get the most out of either program.


Have you ever had an injury like a sprained ankle, pulled back, or strained shoulder? Physical Therapy would be right for you.

For those who lost baseline strength, balance, or motion because of an injury or disease, Physical Therapy is the best option.

Physical therapy would be your next stop after your surgery to assist with your healing process, regain your mobility and fluidity, and get you back to performing activities of daily living.

Our Physical Therapists love treating knee, shoulder, and back injuries at MovEvolution. We are experts at treating common sports injuries, muscle pain, fractures and dislocations, ankle sprains, tennis elbow, and rotator cuff injuries, spinal facet, and disc injuries.

Physical therapy is your best bet for rebuilding a solid foundation for performing your activities of daily living.
