ABOUT OUR CLINIC

Ruzicka Performance & Mobility is the trusted source for finding long-term, all natural solutions that fix problems from their core. We are the Physical Therapy and Fitness team used by thousands of people each year from all over the Houston area to get mobile and stay active. We’re now one of the fastest growing private providers for men and women in their 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and beyond who want to keep active and love to be healthy. The growth of our practice is a demonstration of the commitment we show to our patient’s health and recovery.

Our Physical Therapists are trusted musculoskeletal experts and regularly present to other medical specialists and PT’s on the latest developments in health and injury prevention. A significant percentage of our business is from returning clients who have sustained another injury down the road or who love to come back and get a “tune up” after we have completed our treatment program. We also receive many “self-referrals” via word of mouth or friends and family ‘recommendations’, as well as from physicians that like the rehab process done correctly, without wasting time or money.
