You Deserve the Best Therapists and Facilities in Wake County

All our therapists have advanced degrees, and we never, ever use aides. Even better? Every patient gets our full attention because we don’t double book. This means you get a better experience and outcome.

Our Patients Goals Are Our Goals

We’re known for getting serious athletes back in the game. But we’re also skilled at helping those who just want to pick up a grandchild without pain. We educate and encourage patients to become lean, mean, self-reliant machines. 

Comprehensive, Targeted Treatment



Any surgery can be scary.  Knowing what to expect can help.



Back in Action specializes in athletes and activ-letes (non-competitive but active people of all ages).



Dry needling is a technique that uses a small, sterile, solid filament needle to treat trigger points.

While all our therapists have experience in sports and orthopedic injuries, post-surgical and cardiac rehabilitation, we have specialty trained experts in Vestibular/Balance, TMD/Headaches, Foot/Ankle/Running, Women’s Health/Pelvic Health and a Sports Clinical Specialist. 



Back in Action offers special physical therapy care for people who are experiencing jaw problems, including pain, difficulty opening and closing, and/or chewing.



Do you have dizziness when bending over or rolling over in bed?

client success stories

  • This practice has experienced and knowledgeable physical therapist that provide a wide range of services. The therapy is goal-based. The therapists are concerned about the patients needs and goals. I have seen 3 therapists in this practice and would give them all a 5 star rating. My recovery from ACL and meniscus surgery has been ahead of the normal curve.

  • Excellent staff who listen, educate, and help physically heal. This was a difficult fracture with surgical fixation, and they have worked closely with us to maximize the recovery.

    Kim F
  • Was getting therapy at another group. It was not very good. Changed to Back in Action, OMG! What a difference! They will listen to you and will help you be at the best you can be. Very professional and motivate you to push yourself to better mobility. Would never choose anyone else.

  • Can’t say enough about the excellent care I have received at Back in Action. They have helped me strengthen muscles which have lessened my knee pain and to improve mobility. It still amazes me to see how much can be done without having to resort to medicine/pain killers!
