There is HOPE for people struggling with physical challenges each day of their lives, and Fort Collins Physical Therapy offers real hope. HOPE, a word that many in chronic and severe pain thought they would never hear again.

Silvia Sorensen, PT, DPT, true visionary and owner of Fort Collins PT, began her influential path to Physical Therapy back in 1981 when she was assisting orthopedic surgeons with presentations about rehabilitation. In 1984 she founded Fort Collins Physical Therapy and Sports Center, the only privately owned therapy practice in Fort Collins. She joined Northern Colorado IPA the same year. In 1988, Silvia built a brand-new spacious and centrally located building on East Prospect in Fort Collins to house her practice and allow room for expansion, including a beautiful spa and complete gym.

What makes Fort Collins Physical Therapy and Silvia Sorensen a leader in the field of physical therapy? The vast variety of treatments and services available to clients at her facility, coupled with Silvia’s extensive knowledge.

Innovative treatment methods include:

  • Two ASPEN CLASS IV, 20W LASER SYSTEMS – EXCLUSIVE TO NORTHERN COLORADO! With 3 FDA clearances, these lasers provide amazing immediate and proven results in regenerating tissue while treating pain and inflammation. This non-invasive therapy is risk-free and can produce relief in only minutes.
