What Makes Us Different

Naples Premier Physical Therapy is one of the best clinics in Florida for treating spine-related issues because you are treated as a person. If you’ve had physical therapy before, you’ve probably experienced the feeling of going into a large gym setting, feeling a little bit uncertain about what you can do compared to what everybody else can do. You may have thought ‘I’m not quite ready to be on display on the stage and have everybody else watch what I do’.  

That can affect your psyche and how you feel with recovery. Well, it’s important to know that this office is totally different. Each person should be treated independently one-on-one.  

There’s a philosophy that you are an individual and unique. If you have specific issues that affect you, they are unique to you. They may be similar things Dr. Shane has seen in the past, but you have your own problems, and you have your own goals.  

And we will listen to what you want, and work with you to get you to where you want to be. Many people feel that traditional therapy doesn’t work for them.  

We are here to tell you that physical therapy is very different than what you may have experienced in the past. Dr. Smith has trained extensively in how to work with his hands, how to work with the most cutting-edge equipment to get your healing potential as high and fast as possible, as well as work on biomechanical changes on your body so that you move correctly and be the best that you can.  

You will be treated as a person, both in a treatment room and privately in a very minimal environment with others around. You won’t feel embarrassed. You won’t feel shamed with what you can do. 

The message to all patients is that it doesn’t matter where you’re at today. Your starting point is your starting point and everybody’s starting point is different. All that matters is that we both move in the right direction towards your goals. 

You will make progress in every session to help you feel more confident and motivated to improve to the level of improvement you hope to achieve and both physical issues as well as psychological issues that come with pain will be investigated.  

When somebody hurts and has been in pain for a long time, it’s not just a physical problem at that point, it’s also a psychological and emotional problem. Emotional issues can often manifest into physical pain.  

Those issues as well as your physical pain points will be addressed. Your psyche has a huge part to do with injury and recovery. And until your brain and your body are in it together with improving how you feel and are confident in what you can do, you cannot fully get over the issues you’re dealing with. 

Many patients that have suffered from chronic problems for decades do not feel that there is any possibility for improvement, but instead your mindset and outlook will be worked on, confident in the knowledge they can get better.  

With every patient, it is our mission to get you better. Every patient in the treatment room is the most important patient.  

You are the focal point and all attention is devoted to you. We are here to help you get better in a very comfortable, relaxed setting that you can heal both physically, emotionally, and mentally in.

Who Do We Help

Thousands of people have been treated for back pain at Naples Premier Physical Therapy, helping them to avoid painkillers, injections and surgery.  

One of the common issues is spine-related problems, with thousands of patients over the past decade recovered from both severe neck and low back problems and returning seamlessly to the life they want to live.  

It’s very challenging to be happy in life, to enjoy the things you want to enjoy, especially in retirement. Naples is a wonderful community, voted the happiest and healthiest community for many years.  

But the effects of severe back pain or neck pain cannot be underestimated. It gets hard to sleep and when you can’t sleep, you don’t have any enjoyment in life. The tasks that you hope to achieve to do when you hit retirement aren’t feasible anymore because of the pain you’re dealing with.  

Many patients are told over and over from doctors that this is just something you have to live with. The only thing that can be done is injections, but they are only going to give you relief for maybe a week or two.  

And then you will simply suffer for a few months until the next shot. Some patients unfortunately are told that surgery is the only option to get out of this horrible pain they’re dealing with. 

But Naples Premier Physical Therapy is here to help you discover there’s other options out there that don’t require medication. They don’t require surgery and they don’t require you being miserable either. Dr. Shane likes to help patients get out of something he refers to as suffering and get into something called manageable pain.  

So what’s the big difference between suffering and manageable pain? It’s the unknown of why they hurt so bad and the things they need to do to get back to what they want to do. Injuries are not just tissue damage, they are multifaceted and relate to your psychology. They relate to how your physical body moves, your strength level and flexibility. Unless all of those aspects are addressed, you’re never going to get out of pain fully.  

Shots will help temporarily, but they don’t address the underlying problems of weakness, tightness or poor posture. They don’t address your activities during daily living that could be negatively impacting your pain point.  

Thanks to knowledge, understanding and experience, you will discover the hope and belief that you won’t hurt anymore going forward. You will be showed the right movements to do, what not to do, and things that when you’re in severe pain will help reduce the severity and give you a reasonable timeframe of when you will be able to get back to doing the things you truly want to such as golf, play pickleball, go for a walk on the beach, and be able to play in the pool with your grandkids when they come down to Naples over the winter break.  

Those are all things knows you want and Naples Premier Physical Therapy is here to help you achieve those goals.
