Physical Therapy in River Oaks

Convenient River Oaks Location For Your Physical Therapy Needs

Based in the beautiful Houston community of River Oaks, Bowman Physical Therapy features a spacious 5,000 square foot physical therapy facility.

In May of 2019, the newly built facility opened in the building off Richmond Avenue in River Oaks. This facility gives you plenty of space and uncrowded areas to complete your physical therapy rehabilitation. Also, there’s space to run, build strength, and regain your quality of life.

For example, we have a leg press, smith machine, chest press, multi-hip, dumbbells, multiple NuSteps and recumbent bicycles, and numerous other pieces of rehab equipment.

In the open gym, we have 6 treatment tables and 2 hi-low tables giving you a personal workspace each session.

Throughout the gym and exam rooms, we have Dynatronics Solaris Plus Towers to allow for the convenient administration of ultrasound, thermoprobe, and electrical stimulation modalities.

We also have a Hausmann torque therapy table. This unique table allows our skilled therapists to precisely stretch and isolates involved muscle groups when performing manual therapy techniques.

I was incredibly impressed with everything about Bowman Physical Therapy. I had a total knee replacement on July 26, and they had me finished with PT on August 20. I had my other knee replaced in 2009, and it took about twice as long then to get the same results. Moreover, it was a pleasurable experience. Not only were all of the therapists extraordinarily competent, but they worked as a team to make every session an efficient use of my time. And everyone was cheerful and encouraging. I was glad to be finished, but a bit sad in having to say goodbye to people who had become good friends. In a word, I cannot recommend Bowman PT highly enough.

I have nothing but good things to say about Bowman Physical Therapy! I found them while searching for physical therapists to help me out with some neck issues that I have been having due to technology use. They were the highest rated physical therapists around, and for good reason. Royce and his team (Brent, Kaitlyn, Keri, and Michael) have been nothing short of amazing to work with. They are all extremely knowledgeable, patient, and compassionate. They put together a comprehensive recovery plan for my neck that has provided me with real pain relief. Thank you all again for everything that you have done for me -- you guys rock!

Bowman Physical Therapy has provided the most outstanding services that I have ever experienced!! The services include massaging as well as icing after each prescribed physical therapy session. The staff is experienced, knowledgeable and friendly. It's a great place to receive PT services. I am glad my doctor recommended this facility!

I am pleased to recommend Bowman PT of River Oaks. The entire staff was professional, worked with me according to my ability, pain threshold, and provided a sense of caring and personal investment in my health and recovery from back pain and sciatica. Thank you for good conversation, too. I feel much more comfortable and feel that I can use the various therapies and advice to retain mobility and decrease pain as it may arise.

I came into Bowman Physical Therapy with a severely pulled back. I had previously sought the care of a back doctor but that had less than desirable results. When his solution was a steroid injection in my spine, I thought that physical therapy would be more of a long term solution. I contacted Bowman Physical Therapy River Oaks. Physical Therapist, Royce Bowman, examined me and my range of motion in my first appointment. He also developed my stretching routine. By working with all the Physical Therapy Assistants, I learned different techniques for some of the more troublesome stretches and everyone had the same goal in mind: relieving my back pain, building on the stretches, and teaching me how to continue my therapy at home. Brent, Grace, Kaitlyn, Keri, Glenda, Michael and the other Physical Therapist, Brad, were all informative, attentive, considerate to their co-workers and patients and encouraging. After 33 sessions, I have much improvement! I am mostly pain free - although when I get overly zealous in returning to my “before the back injury” activity, I do have a day of discomfort. However, that discomfort is much less than it was originally and now I know what to do about the discomfort. I know what exercises and stretches to do on a daily basis, when the back flares up and how to move forward to continue strengthening my back. I highly recommend Bowman Physical Therapy to everyone!

I was getting physical therapy care from Oakbend PT for about a month. Royce has very successfully managed to create a welcoming, warm open and bright facility and an atmosphere that’s positive and conducive for healing. Everyone at the Oakbend PT goes beyond the call of duty. I am very positively impressed by their professionalism and incredibly supportive treatment regimen. All the staff there work in perfect unison. I got the best treatment for running related injury. In the past 10 years I had two other running related injuries and had not received this kind of top level treatment. The Clinic Coordinator Brad Rickert, Brent, Grace, Michael, etc made every therapy session a positive experience for me. As promised they made me well enough to participate in the Chevron Houston marathon virtually. I would like to thank the fabulous surgeon Dr Omar Illahi ( Texas Arthroscopy and Sports Medicine Institute) ; after the successful surgery he referred me to Oakbend PT. I wholeheartedly recommend Oakbend PT.

The location of the clinic and its free and adequate parking are a plus, but more importantly, I found the staff to be friendly, efficient, and informative, all of which enhanced my understanding of the healing of my fractured kneecap and what I could do on my own to support it. My two hour sessions kept my busy, and I always left feeling I'd had a beneficial workout with no undue pain. I especially enjoyed the passive modalities used: electrical muscle stimulation to accompany exercises to strengthen my quads; and at the end of the session, therapeutic ultrasound to increase circulation in the soft tissues around the knee, followed by a deep massage of the area and placement of a cold compress for 5-10 minutes. This was my first experience with physical therapy and fortunately a positive one.

I had a left knee replacement in September 2021. I have never been to a Physical Therapy clinic and I would highly recommend Oak Bend River Oaks to anyone needing PT. My experience at Oak Bend River Oaks on Richmond Ave. was totally 5 star from start to finish. From the minute I walked through the door, the team was courteous, knowledgeable, welcoming and made every session a very positive experience. Royce's clinic is open, bright, clean and inspires you to work hard to achieve a successful outcome. Brad's experience, knowledge and calm demeanor guided me through the workout process. The staff were so professional and helped me understand why I needed to do the workouts to bring about the best results. I want to say thank you to everyone for all you did for me. It was truly a great experience.
