Action Potential

World Class Care In A Local Setting!

Our mission is to assure that we provide all patients with the highest quality physical and hand therapy in order to achieve the best possible clinical outcome, and to assure that care is delivered in the most appropriate and cost-effective manner.

Quality patient care is one of the key tenets of our mission as a company. Action Potential Physical Therapy has been nationally recognized as leaders in orthopaedic manual physical therapy since 1997. We take pride in that our owner and active therapist partners are nationally certified fellowship instructors and examiners for the American Academy of Orthopaedic Manual Therapy. Our level of training and skill sets us apart from traditional physical therapy with proven outcomes of reduced patients visits through our applied manual therapy techniques and active treatment approach.

Our physical therapy centers have been selected by OptumHealth a preventative health partner with United HealthCare as one of only two centers in the nation from their network of 60,000 physical therapists to look at conservative spine care with a manual physical therapy approach.  Our collaboration with OptumHealth with conservative spine care resulted in the following:

  • Offering the latest in the evaluation and non/surgical interventional treatment of orthopedic-related injuries, including neck and back pain.
  • Providing access to quality, conservative therapy providers from the start, reducing fragmented care and reducing patient out of pocket expenses as much as 30% while improving clinical outcomes.
  • Offering preferred appointment scheduling so patients could get in to see the right provider when they need them most.
  • Ensuring that care was aligned with the best clinical evidence available.

Our physical therapy centers produced results as a conservative spine care provider with an average of 6.26 visits per case with low back and neck pain patients.  This was 27% below the OptumHealth national network average.

Beyond our success with spine rehabilitation on a national level our licensed physical therapists have worked exclusively with the Australian Cycling Team, Japanese Cyling Federation, New York Yankees - MLB, Colorado Avalanche -NHL, Phoenix Suns - NBA, world class distant runners through the American Distance Project and at major events such as the London Marathon providing hands on treatment and direct consultation. As an independently owned physical therapy practice trusted by family physicians, orthopaedic surgeons, neurologists, physical medicine specialists, and over a decade of satisfied patients we are proud to provide the Colorado Springs community world class care in a local setting!
