Welcome to JB Performance and Reconditioning. If you’ve found your way to this page, it’s likely that you have some sort of injury, pain or movement limitation. 


Perhaps you’re having a hard time deciding on exactly what to try first. Maybe you’ve already tried various treatments but you’re still in pain or you tried a few YouTube exercises, but those exercises either didn’t do a thing or even made the pain worse. ​Maybe you have been given pain pills and muscle relaxers, but know that those things are not treating the true causes of their pain and might be afraid of becoming dependent on them. Some have tried physical therapy before but were at a clinic where they just repeated a bunch of exercises they could do on their own time, and the physical therapist rushed from one patient to the next … rarely spending much one-on-one time with them.

Regardless of where you are at, we are here to help you make the most informed decision and find the fastest solutions to decrease pain and get back to the activities you love without repeated doctor's visits, medications, injections and surgery. Take a look around and check us out - we have free tools that you can use to get started on your journey today. These tools are to help you make an informed decision to make sure we are the right fit for you and your needs. The last thing we want is for you to waste your time and money on the wrong therapist. 

We believe in taking a different approach to physical therapy. While Our model blends our background in physical therapy, strength and conditioning, wellness and athletic performance to go well beyond traditional rehab and help you live your happiest, healthiest life. We do not focus solely on injury recovery. We want to help you feel better, move better and perform better, whether that is in sports or daily activities.

Who we serve

We specialize in working with overhead and rotational athletes (golfers and baseball players in particular) as well active adults in the gym setting. While these are our specialties, we do still work with people that don't fit into one of these categories. However, we do believe in providing elite level care to any of our clients and giving you the specialized treatment you deserve. If it is determined that we are not the best fit or specialist for your particular injury or pain, we will refer you to the appropriate provider.  


No matter your health or performance goals, we want to help you. Our services will help you achieve your health or fitness goals regardless of your age or current activity level. Don't let past injuries or reservations hold you back from getting a jumpstart on your health.

What Makes US Different?

1. Improved transparency and communication 

Making any healthcare decision can be overwhelming with all the choices out there. We want to help eliminate this confusion educate you on the different options and get the best fit for you. We offer free reports/guides, phone consultations and discovery visits to help you with the decision making process. We also make sure you are clear on what the plan is to reach your goals and what the recommended frequency and length of treatment is as well as what the cost of those services is. You will receive no mystery bills or charges months later. 

2. We Address Wellness and Performance

In our opinion PT often only focuses on getting someone out of pain instead of prevention and wellness. This seems so backwards to me and I think applies to all aspects of the healthcare system. Too often we wait for something bad to happen, instead of being proactive.

3. We Can Help Bridge the Gap Between Rehab and Fitness/Performance

One of the most overlooked pieces of the traditional rehab process is the gap that exists between getting out of pain and back to your normal activity or sport. Relief of pain is just a piece of the equation and does not automatically mean you are good to go with normal activity. We can help educate and guide you through this transition 

4. We Make You An Active Participant In Your Health 

We want you to be an active participant in your care, not just accepting what is being told to you. We do this by taking your feedback and input into developing your plan of care to create something realistic and attainable for you and is working towards your specific end goal. 

5. We Remove the restrictions and red tape seen in the traditional model of physical therapy 

Too often in the traditional physical therapy model care is dictated by the insurance companies, not by what is actually best for you. We believe this can hurt your progress and ability to reach your goals and decided to eliminate this barrier. To learn more about our model of care click here

I had a very sudden onset of low back pain that made it almost impossible to get up when I was sitting or laying down. After Dr. Bickle's assessment he decided I would be a good candidate for dry needling. After the second session I was 90% better. After 3-4 days I was able to resume all normal activities.
