Spa City Therapy opened its doors in 2001 with a mission to serve the Hot Springs community.Lee was motivated to start his practice on one basic premise –To provide the highest quality physical therapy on an individual basis. The practice has grown over the past ten years and has recently expanded to include the Hot Springs Village area. Our vision of helping patients reach their physical potential has remained a constant. Our facilities are designed to provide a professional environment that facilitates a more therapeutic atmosphere for our patients and
pleasant working space for our staff.
Spa City Therapy’s treatment philosophy is to provide care that acknowledges each patient as an individual with their own circumstances and needs. Starting with a patient’s initial visit we conduct a thorough interview and evaluation. Through this process our intent is to develop a level of understanding that allows us to properly approach a patient’s problem. We appraise each patient, not purely as a diagnosis, but as a person whose ability to function in their world and enjoy life has become limited and painful.In conjunction with a patient’s treatment, Spa City Therapy’s therapists provide educational information to help the patient understand how to help themselves. The old axiom knowledge is power could not be more true than for someone in persistent pain. Painful situations that have not healed in a predictable amount of time often require a lifestyle assessment to help the patient understand what daily habits could be contributing to their ongoing painful condition. Through this process, patients come to understand that getting better requires their interest and participation to reach their goals. When a patient is discharged from our care, it is our hope that they feel their physical therapy experience was an investment for a healthier future and well worth their time and effort.
It is no small truth that a person’s future is highly dependent on a body healthy enough to take them forward toward their goals. A bucket list can start early in a life but it’s not so easy to check the items off as well as enjoy the process without the cooperation of their body. Because Spa City Therapy acknowledges a patient’s unique needs all along the way, whether younger or older, we are able to help them reach for what is important in their life at whatever point in life they are.
Our former patients are really our best resource for validating the effectiveness of our care. Take a minute to look at our testimonial section “Success Stories” to get an understanding of how much we are helping our patients meet their goals!
We are here to help.
Lee Sowerbutts, PT
Owner of Spa City Therapy & Village Golf & Physical Therapy Center
I had terrible pain in my lower back and as a younger person this frightened me. I’m feeling great now and have been provided with the tools to keep myself fit for the future.... Finally, my back feels great!
“When I started therapy, in my head, I was wondering how PT would fix a nerve issue. How bad was I wrong. Only one week after starting PT, I was able to get in & out of my car with less pain. I could sit for more than an hour and get up without having the pain I had suffered with the previous 3 months. After 3 weeks I had my first soccer game and felt like a new man. Yes, PT WORKS!!”
“I was involved in a car accident and as a result was walking with a cane, neck brace, and back brace at the age of 31. Now I can play with my rugrats! Before I was unable to perform the way a father should... picking up, playing, and bear hugs. Thanks to Spa City because without them my family could not have the fun that we can enjoy now.”
“I had a humerus fracture. I had very little movement in my arm when I came here. Now I am able to do most activities without difficulty. I’m so thankful for the care I received here.”
