We build your body back up from the ground up, using a proven 6-step program – with YOU, your values, and your “why” at the center of everything we do. We make time to listen to your concerns. And give you the pain-free life you deserve – because we care.
We want you back working out, back on the pickleball court, the golf course, or the tennis court. Back to sleeping through the night again - and back to spending quality time with your loved ones. “How?” We focus on lifestyle modifications that strengthen your body using functional movement patterns that you do daily, such as lifting your grandkids, walking the dog, or spending time in the garden.
Here’s how we do it:
The Proven ProActive
6-Step Total Body Wellness Program
Step 1: What Is True For You?
Before we optimize your physical health and help you overcome the obstacles that stand in your way, we take time to understand your wants, needs, values, and concerns. No two patients are the same (even if you have the same injury). That's why we need to determine a successful outcome for YOU.
What do you want physical therapy to enable you to do?
Why do you want to do that thing?
Your answers to these questions lead us to what you need to fix or overcome to get there.
When we’re clear on your "why," we evaluate the TRUE cause of your symptoms. Often, the area where you have pain is not the TRUE underlying cause of your symptoms. Often, other structures like your muscles, tendons, or joints stop doing their job correctly, leading to overcompensation and injury over time.
For example, imagine playing tug of war with a team of 5 people. If 3 of the five people stop pulling, the other two must pull harder to produce the same force. The other two people can do this for a short period. Still, eventually, they become fatigued or injured. This is what happens when you experience non-traumatic pain and discomfort.
Step 2: Natural Pain Relief (Without Medication)
Our patients often compare their first physical therapy session to a physiological sigh or a long exhale – where your body lets go of all the pain patterns and tension it's been holding onto (often for decades) and enters a deep state of relaxation. During your first few sessions, we work with you to reduce or sometimes even eliminate the pain at this early stage and educate you to modify your everyday activities for even more significant benefit. We never tell you to stop the things you like to do. We don't believe in that. Instead, we help you modify activities that contribute to your pain.
Step 3: Mobilization
We help you regain full mobility and range of motion (this is so important). Inside your body, you have muscles that act (agonists). But you also have muscles that do the exact opposite (antagonist). For example, if you turn your head left and right. Some muscles turn your head to the right (agonists), but on the flip side, you have muscles that turn your head to the left (antagonist). They do the exact opposite of one another. To fully turn your head to the right, you paradoxically need flexibility and mobility in the muscles that turn your head to your left. But if these (left turning) muscles are short or tight, you can’t fully turn your head to the right, and vice versa.
Step 4: Stabilization
Back to the tug-of-war analogy, we now need to get the people that stopped pulling to start pulling (working) again to take the stress off the others.
After reducing the pain and mobilizing your muscles and joints again, we help you stabilize the weak structures in your body so they can perform their job. When we get to this point, we start to focus on building the foundation of our body. Think of your body like a house. First, your foundational, structural muscles (stability muscles) keep your body upright and stable. Then, your aesthetic muscles create power. Just like a house, if your foundation is weak, it's a matter of time until the body fails and, hypothetically speaking, falls - leading to overcompensation and, eventually, pain and discomfort.
Step 5: Optimal Performance
When your foundations are strong, we can start improving your overall performance (based on your “why”). If pickleball is your passion, we start strengthening your body in ways that allow you to play multiple times per well with no pain or other setbacks. Same with golf, tennis, playing with your grandkids, or whatever you want to do, and do well – without pain.
Step 6: Total Body Wellness And Prevention
The last step is the maintenance and continual improvement phase. Now that you're active and healthy, we want to make sure that you keep doing all the things you love without suffering setbacks. Research shows that only 5% of people continue stretching and strengthening their bodies after completing a physical therapy program. What happens is that you feel great and start to increase your frequency of performing your preferred activities. But stop the things you learned that allow you to do them. It's a recipe for disaster. That's why we have a continuing program to help you stay on top of your game (whatever that looks like to you).

Meet Dr. Evans...
Dr. Evans is the Founder and Owner of ProActive Physical Therapy and Wellness.
He helps people achieve their health and lifestyle goals and has been doing so for many years. Dr. Evans's guiding philosophy is that everyone deserves a healthcare professional who takes the time to get to know them and listens to their concerns. He believes YOU should be able to lead an active lifestyle free from pain medication and expensive surgeries. He also understands the mental toll that pain can have on you.
Imagine a life where you can spend time with family and friends without worrying, "I'm going to pay for this later."
Imagine how good that's going to feel.
In general, Dr. Evans believes that the medical field relies too heavily on “RE" active instead of proactive medicine, which leads to expensive (and unnecessary) surgeries and prolonged use of pain medication. Brandon is well-trained in treating injuries and pain. Still, he also strives to create a community where medical professionals take a more proactive approach to medicine to address injuries and discomforts at a much earlier stage.
