The One80 Physical Therapy Story & Philosophy
Soon after earning his doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2000, Dr. Polka became disappointed with his profession. From the time Dr. Polka was a PT patient in 1988, until he entered the clinic as a professional, the world of PT had become complacent.
Evaluation techniques centered on pain, swelling and weakness rather than function and physiology. Treatments were based on symptom modification strategies like ultrasound, shoe inserts, electrical stimulation and massage instead of a scientific thought process. Patient needs had taken a backseat to physician’s orders and insurance limitations.
Instead of changing professions, Dr. Polka became motivated to experiment, continue his education and do extensive research. This led to the development of the One80 Physical Therapy System which worked when other techniques had failed.
In 2005, One80 Physical Therapy opened in Loveland, Colorado. Dr. Polka’s patients understood the difference and followed him to his new clinic. Since then, tens of thousands of patient visits fueled by word of mouth referrals have shown that the old model of physical therapy has been replaced.
Physical therapists, chiropractors and massage therapists from across the country have expressed interest in learning One80’s unique techniques. Soon, One80 will be offered as a continuing education course for medical professionals who desire to be leaders in their area. Stay tuned for upcoming course information.
