About Actify PT
We help our clients take the focus off of their limitations and guide them back to hope and the expectation that their body will once again be their ally in the activities they have always loved.
"I have been doing physical therapy for my knees for about 17yrs, living in 9 different states, with possibly 30 different therapists: Best in New York, Los Angeles, sports, alternative... you name it. Dr Perretto is absolutely one of the best in her field. She does not just do a general routine like most I have been to. To say she goes above and beyond is an understatement..she even 'crawled on her knees' while I walked, pulling and poking until I gave her pain free feed back.. and only when she truly knew what helped my 'individual' case did she create a plan for my recovery. I feel truly blessed that I found such a guru in Boca!"

We love to help people:
Keep active - so you can run after your kids all day, take your grandchildren to the park with ease and enjoy a nice round of golf, run or walk anytime that suits you
Stay free from painkillers - so you’re not always reaching in the cupboard for painkillers to ease the pain whenever it strikes - PLUS they’re no good for your long-term health anyway, and don’t actually do anything to fix the problem, just mask it
Avoid dangerous surgery - we’ll help you get to the root-cause of what’s going on quick - often inside 20 minutes, so you don’t have to get to the point of having to face surgery to fix it
Find out what’s wrong - we’ll help give you peace of mind and ensure that your problem is “corrected” and “healed” properly - and we will provide you with the perfect set of exercises that will speed up your recovery
Get more enjoyment out of life - so you can enjoy quality time with family and friends that aches and pains can steal from you, and finally get a good night sleep without tossing and turning trying to find that one position that feels right
Basically, we love to help people get back to living life free from the curse of chronic pain...
When something like chronic pain strikes in your knee, lower-back, neck or shoulders, or if you experience an injury from sport or exercise - we know it’s very tempting to leave it and hope it’ll simply “go away on it’s own” with time and rest… That you’ll wake up someday and like “magic”, it’ll be as if it never happened in the first place - but that’s usually not the case, and often the pain ends up worse than it was when it first started.
We also know it’s very easy to reach into the back of the cupboard for the painkillers, and take them whenever pain strikes so it eases off fast - but all those painkillers are no good for your health long-term, and do nothing but mask the pain instead.
Or, maybe you’re left feeling confused, even skeptical because you’ve seeked advice from other Healthcare professionals, or a Physio in the past, and nothing they seemed to say or do helped.
Can You Relate?
If that sounds like you, you’re not alone. At the Actify we hear this all the time… In fact people who come to see us have often:
Thought the pain would go away on it’s own - but it didn’t
Paid several visits to the Doctor, only to be told to “rest” and “take some painkillers” - then weeks later go back to see the Doctor again, only to be prescribed MORE rest, and an even stronger dose of painkillers
Been put on a month long waiting list after being referred to another physical therapist, then when after waiting so long to be seen - were given a sheet of exercises, which did nothing to ease the pain quick, if at all
Tried a few YouTube exercises, but those exercises either didn’t do a thing or aggravated the pain making it 10 times worse
Thought it would be a good idea to rest because the pain was so bad, but all that did was make the area even more stiff and tight
Been told by a family member or friend that “everybody gets aches and pains as they get older” - making it easy to accept it’s “just a part of life”
Any of those sound familiar?
If any of these have happened to you - we would love to help you by inviting you to book a call to talk with one of our physios to find out what can be done to help you. The fact that you’ve tried any or all of these things already, like many people we see, is actually a GOOD THING because when you know what doesn’t work - you are closer to finding the thing that does!
Click the link below to book a call with us if you would like to get some solid advice given to you over the phone. The phone call is complimentary and there is no obligation to book any appointments with us after the call is over. Our goal is to help you make the right decision about what to do next for the best.
