Founded by Dr. Ann Edwards, a physical therapist and certified dry needling expert, restore was born out of a desire to break through the mold of the traditional therapy experience.

When Dr. Edwards opened her private practice (Ann Edwards Physical Therapy) in 2012, she heard from more and more patients that they weren't getting results from traditional Physical Therapy.  So, they sought out an alternative.  Dr. Edwards' approach was refreshing for these patients because instead of being bounced around from therapist to therapist at the busy clinics, the patient knew they would have quality care every visit.  Furthermore, Dr. Edwards approach involved hands-on manual therapy approaches for the majority of the treatment session.  Exercise was still an important role, but it was taught to the patient for them to do themselves at home. 


Dry needling soon became an integral part of the practice, as the dramatic results were hard to ignore. Eventually, almost every patient seeking care at Dr. Edwards' practice requested the dry needling treatment that their friends and neighbors had been raving about.  

Dr. Edwards would often refer patients out to other providers for supplemental care, but massage therapy seemed to be the most effective adjunct to her treatments.

Whole body cryotherapy was next discovered as an amazing therapeutic tool to decrease pain & inflammation and help patient recover from dry needling treatments faster.

Thus, with the goal of bring all of these therapies together, Restore Therapy Redefined opened in November of 2017.  We are thrilled to offer physical therapy, dry needling, massage therapy, whole body cryotherapy and amazing renewal therapies (infrared sauna, Celluma light therapy, Normatec compression, BEMER vascular therapy).
