Point Forward Physical Therapy is a unique physical therapy clinic in that it provides services utilizing the Adventure 212 facility. The facility contains a warm water pool for aquatic therapy and allows us to care for our patients in an environment which is unparalleled in the Stevens Point area.
Our therapists are highly trained in treating the whole person utilizing research based methods. We also prioritize the education of our patients on the fastest way to return to the activities they enjoy.
We accept all insurance plans and private pay sessions are available. While we accept all referrals from various health care providers, a referral is not required to see a physical therapist in Wisconsin. However, if your insurance company requires a referral, Point Forward can assist you in obtaining an appropriate referral to satisfy their requirements.
