Integrated Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine was founded in 2012 with a goal of providing the best physical therapy in the Des Moines Metro area. The name "Integrated" came from current owner, Tate Van Houten, who had a goal of combining a wide variety of treatments, modalities, and approaches to help many physical ailments and dysfunction. Our providers are well versed in multiple treatment techniques including Graston, dry needling, kinesiotape, cupping, and more.
We offer full service outpatient orthopedic and sports medicine services at two convenient locations. As the only Postural Restoration certified clinic in the metro, both clinics offer and emphasize evaluation and treatment of postural patterns and dysfunction. We firmly believe in treating the WHY in addition to the WHAT.
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.
Complimentary Injury Screens
Wondering if physical therapy is right for you? Let one of our providers help with a complimentary injury or pain screen to determine whether PT can help.
“I have been to several different physical therapists over the past 8 years for unique injuries. Integrated Physical Therapy has by far been the best for many reasons, but the number one reason is because I feel like they genuinely care about working to not only help me feel better but be better overall so I can be healthy for my kids and my life. "
"I suffered an Achilles Tear and I knew this was the place to go for my therapy recovery. They have arguably the best PT's and PTA's around the Des Moines Metro. They have quite a network of specialist knowledge as well to know where to send you in the right direction. I would recommend anyone to this place for surgical PT recovery, Sports related soreness or minor aches and pains. They do such a great job with their clients and that's big reason why they have so many repeat customers and referrals. I'd never go anywhere else ."
“Integrated PT is truly an integrated experience. All of the therapists strive to know all of the clients, not just their own which makes a very welcoming environment. They are a truly a team, who is ever closest to the phone, answers it and takes the time to walk you through whatever you need. During the actual sessions, they answer your questions very respectfully and take the time you need to move forward. I highly recommend them.”
We accept most all major insurance plans.
Physical Therapy is now considered Primary Care instead of Specialty Care., which means your insurance processes a trip to integrated the same as a regular doctor visit. Physical therapy is also "direct access" for most insurance plans, meaning you do not need a doctor's referral or prescription to attend physical therapy!
