About Us

Dr. Lewis spent 15 years working in typical physical therapy clinics, and he noticed a trend, patients were often the least important part of a “successful” clinic. He decided to start a small, niche clinic where the patient is the only priority. He makes it a rule to work exclusively with every patient and fix the current and underlying problem in order to return his patients to a healthier life. Dr. Lewis was born in a small town outside of Chapel Hill, NC and raised in Mesa, AZ. When he is not working, Dr. Lewis enjoys playing basketball, rooting for his home town team, UNC Tarheels (GO HEELS!) and ASU SunDevils, and spending time with his wife and playing with their 6 children. He is also an avid recreational cyclist.


Dr. John A. Lewis, DPT has been in outpatient practice for 15 years, and has seen all manner of injuries. He is adept at post surgical, pre surgical orthopedic (arms, legs, back and neck), accident, worker’s comp (including functional capacity evaluations), vestibular and balance rehab, temporomandibular joint TMJ (dysfunction), headaches, Parkinson’s, and he is certified in ASTYM (an instrument assisted treatment technique). Dr. Lewis has several years of experience as a clinical instructor to doctorate students and Physical Therapist’ Assistant (PTA) students, as well as a professor of PTA at Pima Medical Institute. If you have an injury or disease that requires physical therapy, Dr. Lewis has most likely treated it and can help you get back to better.


Dr. John A Lewis, DPT graduated from A.T. Still University in Mesa, AZ with a Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree in 2004. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science and Physical Education from ASU in 1999.

Work Related Injuries

Dr. Lewis works with your insurance company (worker’s comp or individual) for a return to your job safely and quickly. Included with your rehabilitation from an injury, is an activity called work conditioning and another called work hardening, which prepares you for a return to full duty work through a series of simulated work activities during your time in physical therapy, as well as correcting posture and techniques to reduce the risk of re-injury.

Vestibular / Vertigo / Balance

There are 5 components of balance: Proprioception (touch your finger to your nose with your eyes closed), Reflexes (in the back), Inner Ear (position of your head in space), Vision, and Lower Brain Functions (brain stem, etc.). Each of those can contribute to balance issues. Whatever the cause, Dr. Lewis can work towards you having less symptoms and live a dizzy free life.

Functional Capacity Evaluations

If you are injured and need to prove (or find out if) you can return to work, a functional capacity evaluation (called FCE) is an extensive test to determine your ability to work (your specific job or any job) which will be specifically tailored to your needs according to information you provide in regards to your work environment.


A service of utilizing tools to assist in the recovery from injury. It has years of research behind the practice and can be applied to almost any orthopedic condition, including post surgical. Dr. Lewis uses these tools for several types of orthopedic injuries, but if you would like to receive instrument assisted therapy, ask for it by name.
