PHOENIX – Arizona’s 22nd Foothills Sports Medicine Physical Therapy location will open early in 2016 at The Stetson Village Shopping Center in northwest Phoenix, according to owner Doug Howard and officials of The Pederson Group, developers of the 144,360-square-foot neighborhood shopping center located at the northeast corner of 39th Avenue and Happy Valley Road in northwest Phoenix.

According to Howard, plans call for the new 2,905-square-foot clinic to open “shortly before or after the first of the year, providing northwest Valley residents with a wide variety of physical therapy services for a multitude of orthopedic-muscular-skeletal conditions.”

Founded in 2000 at its first location in Ahwatukee, Foothills Sports Medicine Physical Therapy is the state’s largest privately-owned physical therapy practice with 21 locations throughout the Valley of the Sun, Tucson and Prescott Valley.

Howard said the new Stetson Hills location will initially employ six physical therapy professionals with hopes of growing the staff to more than 20 within the first 12 months of operation. The new clinic will be open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, with morning weekend hours to be added in three to six months. Howard and Logan Moore, DPT, will oversee the operation of the new Stetson Hills location.

“Over the years, our success at our other locations can be attributed to our broad spectrum of physical therapy services that treat a variety of conditions, including acute injury, chronic pain, post-operative care, sports injuries and repetitive motion injuries and conditions,” Howard said. “What really sets us apart is our intent to provide the public with the ‘ultimate patient experience’ throughout their entire spectrum of care, from their initial contact with our office through their treatment and their after-care options.”

Foothills Sports Medicine Physical Therapy also offers a new state-of-the-art treatment – trigger point dry needling (TDN) – specifically designed to target muscular trigger points associated with myofascial pain syndrome. When muscular tightness occurs, spasms begin compressing and irritating the serves leaving the spinal cord. This irritation can result in carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, osteoarthritis, decreased mobility and chronic pain.

“Patients living with any of these diagnoses are ideal candidates for TDN,” Howard said. “We have also found that TDN can help with muscle tightness, muscle spasms and the degenerative process.”

James R. Pederson, designated broker for The Pederson Group, said the addition of Foothills Sports Medicine Physical Therapy “will be a tremendous addition to our tenant mix at Stetson Village. For the past 15 years, the company has developed an outstanding reputation in the marketplace for its team of physical therapists, certified athletic trainers and certified strength and conditioning specialists dedicated to helping patients meet their full potential and wellness goals through individualized care and ‘hands-on’ physical therapy.”

Stetson Village, which opened in November, 2008, incorporates an upscale design incorporating natural desert stones, stone tile, and a series of restaurant patios, upscale landscaping and a tree-lined entrance. Anchored by a 57,860-square-foot Safeway Store – the center is located in close proximity to some of the northwest area’s newest upscale residential developments, including Stetson Hills, a master-planned community anticipated to have approximately 4,000 new homes.
