Hands-on Physical Therapy and Injury Recovery was founded by Dr. Silem (Sal) Gomez-Gould, PT, DPT, COMT, CCI in an effort to improve the quality of care given to patients in need of physical therapy services. Dr. Sal found it nearly impossible to give patients what they needed in a traditional clinic setting because of declining insurance reimbursement rates and business models that require 2-3 patients to be seen at the same time. After five years of offering less than the best, he decided it was time to do something about it and so Hands-on Physical Therapy and Injury Recovery was founded to better serve you. This model allows for one-on-one care all the time which will help you get your life back faster. The business is locally owned out of Conroe, Texas and is ran by Dr. Gomez-Gould and his wife Rachel.
