Painful Conditions We Help Address

The Superior Method

Superior Physical Therapy

The Superior Physical Therapy is a combination of several treatment methods anchored on the experiences of Dr. Andrew Gorecki, who has helped countless patients achieve lasting relief in the past 15 years. With this approach, the root cause of the painful condition is first identified, and a treatment plan that uses the following is developed:

  • McKenzie Therapy

  • Applied Functional Science

  • Full-body Movement Assessment

  • Hands-on Manual Therapy

  • Prescriptive Home Exercise Program

  • Deep Muscle Stimulation

  • Dry Needling

Throughout the entire process, a doctor works with the patient to monitor the progress of the treatment.
