Integrated Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine was the dream of current owner, Tate Van Houten, DPT, who opened his original clinic on Linden Street in October 2012. He later opened the south side location in 2014.

Both locations offer full service outpatient orthopedic services. The Thornton location therapists also work a lot with post stem cell and platelet injection patients with heavy emphasis on proper postural restoration exercises following procedures to maintain proper joint mechanics.


What is Physical Therapy?

Physical Therapy is a rehabilitation and prevention process that can help in a wide variety of areas. Physical Therapy promotes mobility, function, and quality of life through examination, diagnosis, prognosis, and physical intervention.


Not only is it helpful after surgeries or injuries but can also be utilized for balance, incontinence, and other less obvious issues.

Physical Therapy Now Considered Primary Care

Due to a bill passed by the Iowa Senate and signed into law, Physical Therapy is now considered Primary Care instead of Specialty Care. What this means for you is that your insurance will process a trip to Integrated Physical Therapy the same as a regular doctor visit.
