Excellence Through Personal Attention

At Quad City Physical Therapy & Spine, our number one priority is the patient. We strive to provide individualized treatment with hands-on, compassionate care. We do not rush our patients or our clinicians. Rather, we perform comprehensive evaluations and encourage patient input for treatment planning and goal setting.

Our philosophy is to provide the highest quality therapy through personalized care and education. We support creative and individualized intervention. Our personalized approach ensures patient comprehension and will enhance proper treatment progression to secure the best outcome for our patients. In order for full return to an active and healthy lifestyle, the patient must be involved and educated in the recovery process.

We accept most insurance including Medicare and Worker’s Comp.


Personalized care & education

Our highly trained staff treats every patient as if he or she is a family member or personal friend. We realize that as a consumer, you have a choice as to where you receive your rehabilitation care. We would be grateful for the opportunity to assist in your recovery.

Therapists at Quad City Physical Therapy & Spine are trained and certified in the McKenzie Method. McKenzie, aka Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT), is a philosophy and system of active patient involvement and education for back, neck and extremity problems.  It is used worldwide and is one of the most researched physical therapy methods available.  McKenzie has been shown to have superior outcomes using less visits, modalities, and tests – thus making it extremely cost effective for the patient.

I have been a patient of Quad City Physical Therapy & Spine for several years now. I have scoliosis, herniated discs, and lower back issues that I get treated for. I only see Heather when I have an issue and I am usually in and on my way within 3 days. I like that these treatments are not long term. She sends me home with exercises and preventative maintenance to hopefully avoid other issues. Heather is the first person that is so positive in regards to my problems. She also does not discourage me from physical activity, this includes my obsession with running. The staff is always pleasant to deal with and accommodating with my work schedule.


“I was referred in by a family member and they were extremely accommodating to get me in when they really didn’t have any openings. They were on point with a precise assessment and provided a detailed approach for therapy exercises. They guided my progress out of a painful acute stage to a manageable and then recovery stage. I would highly recommend them.”


“This place is awesome the therapists there genuinely care about you and help you progress in your rehab I am totally satisfied my hats off to the owner Heather Duncan she is the bomb.”


“Absolutely the best! I will refer everyone I know!”
