About Us

We are a family/PT-owned practice providing individualized care in Henderson that is required for optimal quality treatments to regain your health and resolve your pain. We are unlike the corporate chains that treat multiple patients to one therapist, which usually and unfortunately results in inferior care. At Basic Healing you get ONE licensed physical therapist treating ONE patient the entire treatment session. Our method is to provide quality hands on therapy treatments, coupled with specific stretching and exercises and customize a physical therapy program tailored to your needs. We have established a reputation for quality care in orthopedics, geriatrics, sports, post stem cell/PRP procedures, dry needling, and wellness/nutrition.

"Our main objective is to help patients return to functional mobility without pain and possibly avoid surgery, as well as to rehabilitate after cervical, lumbar, hip, knee, foot, or shoulder surgery and injury." Owner

Physical therapy is based on the findings of the initial evaluation, as we evaluate your movement patterns and identify any dysfunctions in the muscles or joints, then we apply manual hands-on treatment and therapeutic exercise interventions to address the dysfunction and restore normal movement. Our physical therapists are known in Las Vegas for unparalleled individualized care. Basic Healing Physical Therapy offers personalized treatments in a friendly, holistic, and supportive environment. Whether you are a patient or a referring physician, you can be confident that Basic Healing Physical Therapy provides the most comprehensive physical therapy care in the Las Vegas area.

The areas we specialize in deep tissue therapeutic massage, joint manipulation, joint mobilization, manual stretching, dry needling, and muscle strengthening. We also utilize therapies based on the McKenzie protocol, Yoga, Pilates and neurological muscle retraining to encourage changes in the muscle tone and balancing of the entire musculoskeletal system. In addition, we offer nutrition counseling for optimal health and weight loss.
