WHAT ARE WE MOST PROUD OF?
We are most proud of the opening of our non-profit clinic, Hands and Feet Christian Ministry, in January of 2023. Currently, opioid addiction is destroying the lives of individuals and families at an alarming rate. In fact, 80% of drug related deaths are opioid related death! Hands and Feet Christian Ministry looks to decrease opioid addiction in our community by alleviating obstacles to physical therapy access amongst the financially insecure, lower income, marginalized, and veteran groups so our communities is stronger, resilient, and healthy.
After graduating physical therapy school, I looked for a place that would allow me to help my patients get to the root cause of their problem and create a tailor-made solution with the patient’s goals in mind. I wanted to empower and give my patients the tools needed to avoid having to take dangerous pain meds and get unnecessary shots or surgery. Many places that I worked at early in my career didn’t provide the healing environment that I believe my patients deserved. I knew that I wanted to treat my patients just like I would treat my own family (and not just like a number). This is when Ried Physical Therapy was born in 2017.
WHAT SETS US APART?
A Doctor of Physical Therapy does a thorough, research based exam to help patient get to the root cause of their problem. In our clinic, it is very important to listen to our patient’s goals, history, and needs when creating a plan of care. We are a one-on-one, manual therapy clinic that uses a variety of treatment options for pain relief and wellness when creating a tailor-made solution for each of our patients. We equip and empower our patients with the tools they need to keep their progress long after they have left our clinic. This passion for helping our patients has led us to being Voted as the Best Physical Therapy Clinic in 2023 by Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
