Entering its 25th year in Steamboat, Johnson & Johnson Physical Therapy has topped town’s best physical therapy list for five years running, for good reason.

Now in its new offices at 1880 Logger’s Lane, it’s committed to providing specialized care for those suffering from acute and chronic pain, complex sports related injuries and neurological disorders in a supportive and encouraging environment with an emphasis on directed self-responsibility.

Its treatment emphasis is on Functional Manual Therapy, which includes Functional Mobilization, soft tissue and joint mobilization, Back Education and Training, and individualized exercise programs.

They pride themselves on not just treating the symptom but getting to the root of the problem.

“We’re very hands-on and look at finding the cause,” said co-owner and clinic Director Brent Yamashita, expressing the practice’s gratitude to the community and their patients. “Exercise is meant to turn on the light again, so you don’t have to keep coming back for adjustments.”
