Struggling to recover from an injury?

✓ We listen intently.
✓ We assess carefully.
✓ We treat specifically.

You deserve physical therapy that helps you move better and hurt less.  

At some point in life, we all find ourselves struggling to recover from an injury. Chances are you’re in that painful place right now (otherwise you probably wouldn’t be here on our website).
You just want to feel good again.
The problem is that without the right treatment after an injury…
  • Pain can become chronic
  • Movement can become more difficult
  • Medication can become a regular part of life
  • Surgery can become inevitable
At Rock Island Physical Therapy we understand the frustration of ineffective treatment! When you spend money, time, and effort to get better, you shouldn’t get impersonal, “generic” care. You deserve individualized, hands-on care that enables you to hurt less, move better, and live more.
After decades of experience in various clinical settings, we set up shop in Ruston to offer the area residents a targeted and more personalized approach to physical therapy.
Because we listen intently, assess carefully, and treat specifically, our patients experience better recoveries—and maintain their recoveries. Many are able to stop taking painkillers—and to sidestep surgeries their doctors thought inevitable.
If you’re hurting, you don’t have to feel hopeless! Day after day we’re seeing our patients hurt less, move better, and live more.
Are you ready to get back on track? Make an appointment now.

“Not only did Troy help me alleviate the pain from two bulging discs, he taught me some strengthening exercises to do at home. What an amazing difference!”
“I injured my bicep doing some work outside. It was bad enough that I was afraid I might not be able to use my left arm like before. Troy patiently worked with me. He gave me some home exercises that were a tremendous help. I’m not only better, I might be stronger than I was before!”
"I am a cross country runner with a 2nd degree stress fracture in my right hip. Coming into therapy, I was beyond nervous.  As soon as I stepped foot in the doors Mr. Troy met me with a smile and asked how I was. He gave me the guidance I needed and helped me to believe I could accomplish anything I put my mind to."
“Despite two back surgeries and lots of physical therapy, my pain wasn’t getting any better. I was really starting to lose hope. Troy took the time to listen to me and to help me understand where my pain was coming from. Now I have answers…and exercises I can do to relieve the pain. It’s been life-changing!”
