The Tomball location of Fyzical Therapy & Balance Center is now open, helping patients with balance, immobility, sports injuries and more.

Franchise Owners Brian and Chelsea Brashaw opened the practice at 12111 Spring Cypress Road, Ste. A, Tomball.

Fyzical Therapy & Balance Center offers services such as orthopedic rehabilitation, balance therapy, neurological rehabilitation, and auto/workplace injury rehabilitation. What makes the veteran-owned practice unique is its emphasis on patient comfort and education.

A comfortable experience for patients

One of the things that sets Fyzical Therapy & Balance Center apart is the clinic’s easy accessibility. The practice offers close parking and ramp access to the building so patients can get the help they need without any additional barriers.

“I know one of the barriers to coming to outpatient physical therapy is getting to the clinic itself,” said Physical Therapist Kara Ferrari. “At this location, you only have to walk a short distance and you're in the door.”

In addition, the practice uses a Solo-Step balance support system. This overhead track and harness allows the therapist to work one on one with each patient. Patients are secured in the harness, which is connected to a lanyard and trolley, allowing full range of motion during therapy. This also provides increased safety and confidence for patients.

While the physical therapy gym is an open space, Fyzical Therapy & Balance Center offers separate consultation rooms so patients can discuss their concerns and medical information in private.

Ferrari said she welcomes patient questions and wants each patient to feel at ease at the clinic.

“We do realize that it's sometimes intimidating to come to outpatient PT and not know what to expect,” Ferrari said. “ We want to make sure that everybody feels free to ask questions. We want it to be friendly and interactive and [a place where] you feel comfortable coming.”

Prioritizing patient education

Fyzical Therapy & Balance Center takes a collaborative approach to physical therapy. Through conversations with Ferrari, patients can expect to gain understanding as to why certain exercises are prescribed and how that impacts their personalized plan of care and goals.

“One of the things I like about physical therapy the most is that it's really a partnership,” Ferrari said.

Giving patients context about their exercises helps to give them motivation to keep working toward their goals.

“Regardless of your age, you shouldn’t have to live in fear of falling,” Ferrari said. “That's not an expectation that you have to live with. We want to change that conception and I believe that comes through education.”

Visit the practice

Although ongoing physical therapy requires a referral from a doctor, prospective patients are welcome to visit the practice to see the clinic and ask questions. This can help patients determine if Fyzical Therapy & Balance Center is a good fit for their needs.

“If you haven't been to PT before, it may seem intimidating, " Ferrari said. “[Patients] are more than welcome to come by and check out our new location and learn more about us.”
