Unlike traditional treatment options that mostly only manage the symptoms of a condition, leaving patients with recurring pain, the Superior Method involves identifying the source of the pain. This is critical in coming up with a plan for lasting relief because pain is sometimes referred from a different part of the body.

Armed with an extensive understanding of how the different systems in the body work in unison, we conduct a comprehensive physical and movement exam to pinpoint the root cause of your pain correctly. We then develop a plan to address that pain and eventually help you regain your complete mobility.

We have successfully addressed conditions ranging from muscle issues to spinal problems using the Superior Method.

3 Simple Reasons to Choose Superior Physical Therapy

Superior Physical Therapy - Knee Pain Experts
  1. One on One Care- In a healthcare climate of increased visits to increase profits with lower quality providers ultimately putting the patient in the middle, Superior has chosen a different path. We provide one on one care with the Doctor at each visit. You get the time and quality you deserve.
  2. Whole Body Approach- Most providers and treatment options in the traditional health system are designed to mask the symptoms of pain. At Superior we recognize that most musculoskeletal pain symptoms are a result of surrounding areas not moving properly. Our Superior Method allows us to assess how the entire body is moving, detect areas of dysfunction, and fix the root of the dysfunction so that you relieve the symptom and get back to normal again.
  3. Educational- Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime. The Superior Method is designed with this verse in mind. We will do whatever it takes to educate you on the solution to your problem.

Once we have determined what’s causing the symptoms, we can then develop a comprehensive plan to target the underlying issue and ultimately resolve it, leaving you with lasting relief.

Our Story

Superior Physical Therapy has a true story behind the name. It all began with the owner Andrew Gorecki prior to becoming a physical therapist. Andrew had a back injury that herniated a disc and required over a year of treatment. This treatment included the standard medications, injections and then finally surgery. But it was after surgery that the light bulb went off as the disc herniation came back two weeks later and the surgery failed. This was the same time that Andrew began physical therapy school. There it was discovered that his lower back was not the problem, but, in fact, the right hip had stopped rotating. By focusing on the right hip mobility, the disc herniation and lower back pain had been healed naturally without another injection or surgery. This was the beginning of the journey that led Andrew to learn about Applied Functional Science. This type of treatment has now been learned and implemented across the board by the entire team at Superior Physical Therapy.

The Superior Method

The approach teaches to look at the entire body as a kinetic chain that is interdependent. The site of pain is not always the source of pain. It is the most advanced movement science. This new approach empowered Andrew and his wife Erin to branch out onto their own to meet a growing demand for natural solutions to pain without medications, injections, or surgeries. The same year that Superior opened its doors was also the same year that Andrew and Erin got married on the shores of Lake Superior. This also happens to be where they met while attending college at Northern Michigan University. So naturally the name of the business has a double meaning. We believe that Applied Functional Science is hands down the most advanced and effective physical therapy treatment approach available. Secondly, we have a love for the Upper Peninsula and Lake Superior as a source of beauty and positive energy. And there you have the story behind the name. We hope your experience is truly Superior.
