New location in Burlington opens for Rock Valley Physical Therapy

Rock Valley Physical Therapy is pleased to announce the opening of a new physical therapy clinic in Burlington, Iowa.  The clinic opened on 10/12/2020 and is located at 3180 Agency Street, Suite 110 next to McAlister’s Deli and in front of Staples.  Long-time Burlington native Chris Schroeder brings 25 years of clinical experience as the role of clinic manager.  

“I am excited to continue taking care of the Burlington and surrounding communities.  I have been fortunate to have a great team of therapists, patients, and physicians support our practice over the past decade.  Our goal is to help people get back to doing the things they love whether that is lifting a grandchild, exercising, recovering from surgery, or just getting out of a chair with less pain.  The relationships we have built with each patient as they achieve their goals has been priceless.” 

Schroeder opened PT Works Burlington on Division Street in 2008 before transitioning the clinic to Rock Valley in 2018.   Rock Valley is a 100% therapist-owned company with 50 locations in Illinois and Iowa including Southeast Iowa locations in Muscatine, Mount Pleasant, Danville, and Columbus Junction.   The new location will provide easier access for patients and additional space for expanded treatment options.

In addition to treating patients with orthopedic conditions such as shoulder, knee, and back pain, the team of Burlington therapists specialize in manual therapy and caring for injured workers.  They have extensive experience with athletes and returning weekend warriors toward achieving their goals.  Schroeder is also certified in Trigger Point Dry Needling (TPDN), a technique used to relax tight muscles.  Chris earned his physical therapy degree from the University of Iowa. Outside of work, Chris enjoys running, riding his bike, and spending time with his wife Jennifer and their children.
