Philosophy

In Sunshine Physical Therapy, we believe in taking a comprehensive approach to the management of our patients’ problems.

We don’t only treat the patient’s complaint, but we try to determine the cause of the problem and the underlying reason for it.

For example, if we are evaluating a patient with knee pain due to arthritis, we not only try to treat the arthritis but to investigate the reason for the arthritis.

These reasons might include a foot abnormality, obesity, or other underlying condition that can result in arthritis.

Based on this comprehensive assessment, we come up with a plan of care based on the patient’s needs, treating both the symptoms and the source of the problem.
