Northern Arizona Rehab & Fitness in new location
Now offers aquatic therapy, exercise gym
Northern Arizona Rehabilitation & Fitness moved to a new, enlarged and improved location in August. The new facility is located at 480 S. Willard in Cottonwood.
Owners are Tarrin Walz and Phil Sauer, both physical therapists. Administrative Director is Teri Back, and patient care coordinator is Cindy Mesa. The business employs 12 people and the owners are looking to expand to as many as 16 to 20 staff members.
The business specializes in physical therapy and fitness services, including post surgical, injury rehabilitation and general fitness.
The biggest change is an aquatic therapy pool. "We have four full classes," said Mesa. "Those are all physical therapy."
Mesa said the business is open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. "We don't close for lunch," she said. "We're seeing about 300 patients a week."
Back said that most patients are referred by their physicians. "But with Arizona being a direct access state, they don't have to be referred," she said. "We do a 15-minute free referral."
In addition to a full-size pool, the business has individual treatment rooms and a large exercise gym.
Back said many patients continue with conditioning and fitness programs after completing a rehabilitation program. "After therapy you meet with a trainer," she said. The goal is to keep people fit after being rehabilitated so that the same problems do not repeat themselves.
