I came to Caleb dreading the thought that I may need back surgery to improve the quality of my life. With Caleb’s hands on approach and cutting edge philosophy, that is no longer an option. He worked diligently to understand the underlying causes of my injuries and pain. I trust his expertise and did what he asked of me. My family thanks him for improving not only my health but how I can function at home as a mother and wife.

I've had chronic pain from cervical fusion surgery from 5 years ago. Caleb, Kim and Summer are a fantastic team! They have worked feverishly to try and reduce that pain and get me back in shape. While that has not totally been the case, they have helped the issue considerably and have a never give up attitude!! Thanks to Midwest PT!!

I saw Dr. Anderson as a last stop before two major spinal surgeries. I have lived with chronic pain for at least three decades and have had many different kinds of treatments, including other PT. Midwest Physical Therapy is the first place I’ve been where they looked at the whole picture. After just a few weeks of PT I am now able to walk up and down stairs unaided for the first time in over a year. I know I need to follow the directions and exercises and it will be hard work but I can see results and am happy to put the effort in to avoid surgery. Dr. Anderson and Mr. Anderson truly care about the well-being of the patient and really know what they are doing! I strongly recommend Midwest Physical Therapy to anyone, especially if you feel you’ve tried everything and nothing has truly helped. They can help.read more

Caleb and Kim are simply amazing! I had given up on physical therapy after I actually injured myself doing exercises assigned from a large institutional provider. I had to go back to a doctor enduring two weeks in nerve pain to get an order to fix the problem. I was lucky to find this group who were co-located with a clinic my wife already attended.These folks know how to address the problem ordered and look for additional root causes.They are gentle and friendly, but strong and capable.Even difficult problems are interesting to them! Caleb really "Dr. Gregory House"-ed a problem of mine that an occupational therapist assigned by an orthopaedic doctor also missed about my problem. The problem was confirmed by the orthopaedic group with several visits spread over months and 2 expensive imaging/sensing procedures. Caleb simply remembered the possibility of the rare pathology and confirmed all its exact conditions in my body!This is merely the good that they have done for me. My wife's problems are more acute, long-term, and potentially serious. They are addressing these handily as well!read more

Going to see Caleb when I started having some hip pain while running was the single best elective decision I have ever made for my health. I wasn't sure whether I needed to see someone, so I called on a referral from a coworker to see if I could just go in and ask some questions. Caleb heard me out, tested me, and pinpointed the issue in no time, which has turned into a management strategy that I will maintain for the rest of my life. I thought I would have to taper back the amount of running I do, but Caleb gave me exercises to do in parallel with a heavy running schedule, which has allowed me to do what I love while staying healthy.These guys are very transparent with treatment plans and pricing, they're very flexible, super fun to work with, and extremely compassionate for their patients. They're not just clinicians, they're teammates!read more

Caleb got me on my way to recovery.I'm a 77 year old guy who has had two complete knee replacements and then a third surgery on my knee cap (all on the same knee). I've had physical therapy both at home and outpatient after each surgery. PT had been somewhat helpful in the past. I was put though a set of standard PT exercises. However, Caleb took the time and interest to observe carefully what was causing me pain, loss of flexibility, and loss of strength. He then worked with me to address those issues and gave me a set of exercises to continue after my insurance coverage ended.I'm back biking, flexibility has returned, and I'm rebuilding strength.I highly recommend Caleb to anyone needing and wanting personal physical therapy help.read more

How Our Services Can Help

Mechanical Diagnosis

Understand the difference between chemical (think inflammation) versus mechanical pain (think pain that is dependent on specific movements). We empower you with specific and individualized movements and loads through exercises that target the root cause of your pain! We strive to provide you a diagnosis that is easy to understand, targeted to fix your problem and provide a real outcome for you! Our society is overly dependent on short-term answers that typically only mask the problem – creating a cascade of progressive injury that only leads to more problems. How might your life be different if you didn’t develop a chronic and persistent injury?

Reduce Your Pain

Step two is educating you in how to reduce your pain. If your pain is from your neck or mid/low back, this may involve centralization ~ the phenomenon where your pain becomes more localized to its original source. This is actually a great prognostic sign that gives you confidence your condition can be healed with self-treatment! Often, we can provide exercises that provide rapid reduction in the intensity of your pain after the first few sessions – without having to rely on massages or other passive care options. The best kept secret in physical health from mechanical origin can be found with a trusting relationship with our physical therapy team!

Maintain Your Results

Our physical therapy team prides itself in empowering you to understand how to maintain your improvement for the best long-term outcome. We don’t mince words like other health care providers do to provide passive care for nothing more than short-term relief (if any at all). We teach you how posture – and maintenance of lumbar lordosis as an example – is essential to you healing you intervertebral disc bulge or herniation in your neck or low back. Don’t rely on imaging – or doctors that do – to provide solutions until understanding the mechanics of your injury!

Break the Cycle of Injury

Don’t be fooled by traditional PT’s who show you exercises you can find on the internet without any specificity, chiropractors who will magically fix everything “realigning your pelvis”, doctors who want to numb or ablate your nerves – or worse, creating a dependency on opioids for nothing more than symptom relief! We will educate you better than most healthcare providers on how to self-manage your condition with specific exercises designed to heal your injury through reductive or remodeling forces. And we will apply clinician generated forces (through mobilization or manipulation) when it is indicated!

More about Sports Medicine >>

Outcomes-based Care

We are aware that your goals involve more than being able to regain motion and strength. Let’s be real- Do you want to sleep through the night without pain? Walk more than a mile? Play with your grandchildren? Run a marathon? Throw a ball? Optimize your athletic ability to maximize your potential in a professional sport? Our care will always be centered on you achieving these results and helping you understand the steps you need to take to get there! Our current society is overly dependent on passive solutions to problems that need a better understanding. We have dedicated our careers to provide that solution to you!

More about Pain Control >>

Value-based Medicine

Would you be happy if you brought your vehicle into the mechanic and after 12 “tune-ups” and  you received a large bill and it still did not run properly? The day is coming where this is the same expectation with our bodies! What value would it bring to your life if you could do what your pain is preventing you doing? What is your pain stopping you from doing? Do you feel you are making any long-term improvement with your current treatment or plan? Come see us to understand the difference! We want you to understand the implications of your choice for a physical therapist – and the real impact it has on your quality of life and ability to achieve your functional goals. 

More about Orthopedic Therapy >>

Body Regions We Provide Solutions For:

neck injury

Neck Pain

Underlying mechanical causes of neck pain have been proven to be perceived as “tight upper trapezius” muscles, a sharp pinch at the inside of your shoulder blade, shoulder pain and/or weakness – or even worse – headaches, TMJ pain, sinus pressure, nausea or numbness and tingling in one or both hands! Don’t fall victim to solutions that don’t fix the underlying cause – massaging and stretching the muscle, or relying on “adjustments” that only temporarily open epidural space but don’t fix the problem!

back injury

Back Pain

Lower back pain is one of the largest economical and physically debilitating conditions affecting our local and national communities! The truth is there is more than you realize you can do to address the issue and be self-empowered to manage it for the rest of your life. It’s one of the best kept secrets in healthcare that you need to know to stop relying on solutions that only reduce your symptoms without FIXING the cause! Stop being taken advantage of by short-term solutions!

shoulder injury

Shoulder Pain

Pain and/or weakness in your shoulder can stop you from doing what you want to do and impact your life. It is a common area of referred pain from other body regions (i.e. cervical spine), complicating your ability to understand how to fix the underlying issue! True shoulder pathology typically stems from within the joint (articular) or the soft tissues (muscles like the rotator cuff) that surround the joint. An accurate mechanical diagnosis with a targeted treatment plan is the difference between achieving your goal and not!

knee injuries

Hip Pain

 Is your hip pain located in the front, side or back or you hip? Is it dependent on movements of your lower back or hip? The truth is that most hip pain is poorly misunderstood, or given an inadequate mechanical, or load -based – intervention or home exercise program. There is often more that you can do to avoid unnecessary procedures that leave you in a dependent state on “the medical world”. How would it change your life if you were able find a long-term solution to your pain? 

foot injury

Knee Pain

Are you doomed to progressive pain and lack of function affecting your ability to do what you want to do because of knee pain? Are you unable to go up or down stairs? Unable to run without pain? Are you convinced it’s just a matter of time before you need some procedure or a replacement? We offer a highly evidenced-based approach that provides a predictable way for you to understand the source of you pain – and better yet – a sequence of simple, individualized exercises to reduce pain and to reach your goals!

wrist injury

Ankle or Foot Pain

Why does it seem like some people find a simple solution for their pain and lack of function when they see a medical provider – and some people struggle with progressive pain for years? Think for a moment about how it affects your life if you go to the wrong provider for a solution that could have been easily addressed appropriately early on.. We empower you to understand the contributing factors that led to your injury – and better yet – provide a concise individualized program you need to know to heal it!
