Functional Health and Wellness recognizes the importance of complete therapy, from beginning to end, but we also realize the parameters our patients are faced with, physically and financially. We are dedicated to instituting an all-inclusive rehabilitation program designed to permit individuals suffering from orthopedic, sports, and work-related injuries to initiate therapy at an earlier, more essential stage of recovery and continue until the desired level of rehabilitation is met.

We will offer comprehensive physical therapy that the patient can engage in outside of traditional clinic settings. We call it our “Independently Healthy” program. It will be affordable and patient dedicated in order to advance our patients past the normal rehabilitation state.

Functional Health and Wellness will provide full span physical therapy. Patients can start as early as permitted and continue until full function is achieved. The head therapist, Ryan Todd, DPT, BS, HHC will provide an initial evaluation to determine the proper therapy program for his patients. Upon evaluation, the head therapist will determine how frequently the patient needs to come to therapy based on their physician’s initial prescription and his own professional evaluation. At this time he will also establish the appropriate combination of clinical physical therapy that particular patient needs in order to reach an optimal state of recovery.

Our Philosophy: Independently Healthy

Functional Health and Wellness will be dedicated to originating an all-inclusive rehabilitation program designed to permit individuals that suffer from orthopedic, sports, and work-related injuries to initiate therapy at an earlier, more essential stage of recovery and continue until the desired level of rehabilitation is met.

Our clinic will offer traditional physical therapy and an "Independently Healthy" wellness program to further progress patients past insurance supported therapy. We will offer a wide variety of physical therapy that is not present in today's traditional clinic settings. Our "Independently Healthy" program will be affordable and patient dedicated in order to advance our patients past the normal rehabilitation state resulting in a thriving business due to tremendous results.

Dr. Ryan worked w/me individually and explained every step in my therapy. I understood why I was doing what I was doing. His approach is to educate you about your body and how it functions, so that you know why you need to do what you need to do. His one-on-one attention makes you forget your injury and more focused on healing. You will never be double booked nor ignored while he tends to someone else. His Office Manager Elizabeth seals the deal; you will always be greeted like you are family.

Functional Health & Wellness provided the impetus to get my life back! Six months ago I had a laminectomy (lumbar stenosis decompression) to correct a condition for which I have suffered progressively worsening pain for over 15 yrs. After the surgery I recognized it would be a long road back. My Neuro Surgeon recommended and prescribed physical therapy.Elisabeth, the Office Manager was friendly, helpful and encouraging.The Med-X unit was great. I highly recommend Dr. Todd & Functional Health.

I found Dr. Todd to be extremely knowledgeable about my condition. He developed a physical therapy program that was customized to me using the Med-X medical lumbar rehabilitation unit. Dr. Todd was patient, encouraging and adjusted the program based on my capability.I credit Dr. Ryan Todd and Functional Health and Wellness in helping me to get my life back! I highly recommend Dr. Todd and Functional Health and Wellness for anyone needing short or long term therapy.

Both of my children were treated at Functional Health & Wellness for sports injuries, and received quality, custom physical therapy by Dr.Ryan Todd. The one on one treatment and rehabilitation in a very kind, attentive and effective way was exactly what I was looking for for my very athletic kids. They responded very well and were back out in the field playing without any symptoms shortly after therapy. Great care, very personable staff!

This is the best physical therapy has to offer. Unlike other settings where very little time is spent one-on-one with the therapist, Ryan takes you through the whole way. It's this approach that is rare...he seems to feel it's important to be there fully for the patient. He is conservative, yet progressive. I always felt comfortable with the things he suggested and felt very informed. I couldn't recommend him enough!
