Advantage Physical Therapy & Wellness


Serve, I feel, correctly diagnosed my chronic condition after a whole year of leg discomfort. I also think she has put me on the right path for a better quality of life. I was afraid that I would have to live with this condition for the rest of my life, but now I think it can corrected.
Thank you Serae.
I’ve had physical therapy in Durango in the eight years since moving here from Orange County, California. Advantage Physical Therapy & Wellness is the best of the best PT I’ve ever had for chronic back pain.

On May 10, 2021, I had major back surgery at Mercy Regional Medical Center. When I was given a prescription for physical therapy, Advantage Physical Therapy & Wellness got me scheduled within a few days.

The extensive posterior surgery from C4 to T2 caused numbness and tightness of muscles at my shoulders and along the length of the incision on left and right sides of the spine. I’ve been to other therapists, but this is the first time I can say that PT by this group is the world’s best!!

With each treatment (3 times weekly), I feel better than before. In fact, the techniques that each physical therapist has used on my back has kept me from using pain medication. Once in a while, I take a muscle relaxer at night, because I work long hours to run my nonprofit.

Thank you, Advantage Physical Therapy & Wellness! My gradual healing and increased energy from the treatment you provide me is just a sort of miracle! I love the environment and the very caring receptionist. I recommend any of my friends to get PT from Amy, with whom I’ve become fast-friends!
A HUGE thank you to these businesses for their support! Do you have one of my signs out front of your business and I miss you? Comment on my page or post a picture!

We use our class 3b LASER to treat a wide variety of conditions every day. It accelerates healing through a photochemical process at the cellular level. For all of you scientific types, it activates the mitochondria in the cells and starts a chain reaction that leads to tissue repair and regeneration. If you are wondering if our LASER could help you, feel free to call one of our offices and ask to speak to a physical therapist.
