Brian has treated several members of my family, and we have all greatly benefitted from his expertise. Unlike physical therapy I’ve had elsewhere in which PT assistants provided most of the care, Brian is able to dedicate his attention 100% to his patients. Highly recommended!
I lead an active lifestyle and just dealt with joint weakness and pain as it came over 20 years of a repetitive injury. In just a few sessions with Brian, I have not just recovered from my latest issue, but am well on the way to being stronger than I was before. I now know that even after long-term injury I can still be both active and pain free. He has given me the tools I needed to help prevent future injuries and keep me participating in the activities I love.
Absolutely recommend these wonderful people for PT! You will get devoted attention every time.
After going to a chiropractor weekly to attempt to alleviate the chronic sharp pain in my shoulders With NO relief. I decided to try another way. After working with Brian for ONLY 3 sessions the pain has been completely worked away and he has given me exercises to do to prevent the pain and knots in my back from returning. I couldn’t recommend Brian more!!!

What We Offer
Every visit you have with CSPT will be one-on-one with a Doctor of Physical Therapy. We do not use aids or techs at our facility. We will help to relieve your pain, fix the root cause of the problem and teach you how to prevent it. Our goal is to treat the entire person for a more complete and lasting return to the active life you desire without pain medication or unnecessary surgery.
We focus on a mix of functional movement assessment, hands on techniques and a strong emphasis on education. We use manual therapy, therapeutic exercise, soft tissue mobilization and massage to improve movement and mobility.
We also use other techniques when appropriate such as trigger point dry needling and blood flow restriction. Skilled manual therapy techniques can make immediate improvements in pain and mobility creating an opportunity for greater movement, strength gains, and healing response.
It is therapeutic exercise that utilizes that opportunity to regain strength, speed healing, and resolve harmful compensations that you’ve developed. Some of the time spent in every treatment session will be focused on education for what exercises are best to treat your specific condition.
Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy
We are experts in evaluating and treating the pelvis and it’s surrounding muscles. We are champions for normalizing the conversation around pelvic floor complaints – getting people out of the dark and into a symptom free life. We also help women return to fitness postpartum.
At College Station Physical Therapy and Performance, we help athletes and active people of all ages to perform at the highest level possible. We provide performance and wellness training and programming for runners, triathletes, golfers, soccer players and other athletes returning to the sport they love.
Small Group Training – CSPT FIT
CSPT Fit consists of small groups of up to 4 people that can work hard together to continue their fitness journey. Bring your small group or be paired with individuals with similar goals. As we spend more time helping people find freedom after pain and symptoms, the most important thing we can do is provide a space for clients to continue their work after they are done with therapy.

We are excited to provide the training situation for you to have continued success and growth! Email or call us for details!

Frequently Asked Questions
Do you take my insurance?
Here at College Station Physical Therapy and Performance our priority is high quality care for our patients. Because of this we do not have any contracts with insurance companies. You are with the Doctor of Physical Therapy for the entirety of your treatment as we feel the exercise portion of treatment is arguably the most important part of your visit. We can also give you the information that you need to file your own claim for possible reimbursement. By being out of network we can give you the attention and treatments that you need to get back to doing the activities you love.
Do I need a referral to see a physical therapist?
No, in September of 2019, Texas was one of the last states to give physical therapists direct access to patients. After 10 days we will need to get a referral if further treatment is needed.
Do you allow volunteers/observation at your clinic?
We currently do not have any volunteer/observation available at our clinic.
Are you hiring?
We currently are not hiring for any positions. Please check back here for any opportunities in the future. Thank you for your interest in CSPT.
