About Us

At Bauer Physical Therapy, you'll discover expert, hands-on physical therapy delivered by the owner – Shane Bauer – an experienced and personable physical therapist who knows his craft and knows it well! Unlike a larger practice with many therapists on staff, Bauer Physical Therapy places your care in the hands of one highly skilled physical therapist – not three or four who must continually pass the message on. With Shane as your sole physical therapist, there is no chance of being lost in the shuffle. Instead, you get personal, undivided attention from one physical therapist who is totally committed to your recovery.

Occasionally the physical therapy plan of care is given by the referring physician. However, most of the time the physician relies on the physical therapist to decide the best treatment plan. Many insurance companies will allow you to go directly to a physical therapist without a physician's referral. You can also seek physical therapy on your own and pay for the sessions on a self-pay basis.

Shane's consistent, evidence-based treatment plan is designed specifically for you – with preciseness and RESULTS. Individualized care delivered in a friendly, personable environment is what sets Bauer Physical Therapy apart from the others.
