Physical Therapy

Conditions & Diagnoses

At Proliance Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation our highly skilled therapists treat a wide range of conditions and diagnoses with excellent outcomes. Whether you’re recovering from surgery, trying to avoid surgery all together, looking for premier sports care, or have a unique diagnosis — our team is ready to help you reach your goals.

Below are just some of the areas we specialize in:

Post-Operative Care

Post-operative care is one of our specialties and nobody does it better. Our relationships with the most prominent surgeons in the Puget Sound area are unique in that your Physical Therapy team is simply an integrated part of your overall treatment team. Constant communication with your surgeons allows us to monitor your healing in the most complete way.

Typically, Physical Therapy is started one day to three weeks following your surgery (depending upon the procedure). We’ll work with your surgeon to ensure we are up to date on your medical history before our first meeting so we can make the most out of our time together.

We’re all connected, we’re all communicating, and we’re all working together to get you back to your goals.

Non-Operative Care

Our highly educated and experienced staff are the right team to handle your orthopedic musculoskeletal injuries. Our treatment expertise includes the knee, shoulder, foot and ankle, hip, elbow, hand, and spine care.

When we evaluate and set up your personal treatment plan we treat more than your injury, we assess your entire body and how you move. Often times patients compensate for injury in ways that can put stress on other areas of the body. Our focus is on your total wellness, setting you up to reach your goals and to prevent re-injury. Patient education plays an important role in this process. The more you understand your injury and the rehabilitation process from the start, the better our results together.


Whether you’re a highly competitive athlete or a weekend warrior, we’re on board to help you reach your goals of returning to play as soon as possible.

Not only do we treat injured athletes, but we help make sure you’re as ready to go at your peak performance. Our specialists will tailor your exercises for your injury – and for your sport. Together, we’ll develop a plan that takes future performance demands and your current level of function into consideration so you’re ready for primetime when you return to play.

Our team of specialists have worked with Olympic, professional and collegiate athletes, and some are even elite athletes themselves – so we personally understand the frustration associated with injury, and know exactly what it takes to get you back into your activities.

Gait Evaluations/Orthotics

At Proliance Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation our team is highly skilled at evaluating gait and biomechanics of the lower extremities. We analyze foot movement patterns and can assess whether or not you would benefit from custom foot orthotics.

Our video gait analysis allows us to   record you while walking and running, which allows us to examine your body’s movement patterns and determine what mechanical corrections are needed to improve your gait.  We may also use treadmill gait analysis to identify problems such as muscle imbalance and areas of poor flexibility. From this evaluation we’ll develop exercise programs specific to your personal needs.

We offer semi-custom and custom orthotics to help treat foot and ankle pain, knee pain, back pain, overall alignment, and gait correction.

What Our Patients are Saying

We are so grateful for Emily’s wisdom and tenacity during our daughter’s injury. In every possible way, Emily exceeded our expectations. She advocated with the surgeon for us, she was creative in her approach to therapy, and she overturned many obstacles that came our way during recovery. But even more importantly, Emily was kind, fun, and compassionate with our daughter, making this painful journey back to health a positive experience. We have always felt like we were in excellent hands, literally! I cannot recommend Emily and her team enough.

After requiring surgery for a torn ACL due to a sports injury, Kiley Steinriede from Proliance Sports Therapy guided my journey to recovery from re-learning to walk to returning to play the sports I love. Kiley’s mix of real-world experience, attention to detail, empathy, motivation, care, humor and emotional support is what made it all possible. I couldn’t have done it without her.

I would not have had a successful rehabilitation experience were it not for Kiley. She was tirelessly diligent, attentive and knowledgeable about what was best for my post-op ACL rehab at each stage of the recovery process. But more importantly, her humor and care for me as an individual, not just a patient, was the greatest encouragement as I went through physical therapy. Because of her, I looked forward to coming in to sessions and her optimism and charisma no doubt expedited my rehabilitation.

Laura Browne has provided excellent and effective physical therapy to both myself and my husband in the past. Now, I am thankful to have her professional knowledge and caring treatment as I struggle with the dual problems of surgery recovery and recurrence of significant lymphedema near the surgical site. Laura fluidly adapts to the limitations that the lymphedema imposes on a “normal” path to surgery recovery, always finding effective exercises to substitute for ones that are not practical for the situation. Throughout, her communication is informative, honest, and encouraging. Laura Browne is a credit to the high standards Proliance seeks in their employees.

Kudos to Proliance Sports Therapy & Rehab for the superb treatment I’ve received over the past several months. A spring ski mishap resulted in my fractured arm near my shoulder and that led to surgery requiring a steel plate with several pins; in the same fall, I tore my rotator cuff in my ‘other’ arm. With both arms basically ‘out of commission’ I was scared and worried about how I’d ever use my arms normally again. Laura has amazed me with all of her knowledge and capability as she has led me through a PT Program that now has me functioning as normally as I was before… I am so thankful that I chose Proliance Sports Therapy for my rehab; should I ever need rehab again, I would choose Proliance in a heartbeat!


14 months ago I had total shoulder replacement on my right shoulder at Issaquah Proliance Orthopedics & Sports Medicine. Surgery went great! Started Physical Therapy 1 week later. My Therapist (Cathy Van Lith) discussed my goals with me and set a plan. Everybody is so friendly and nice and make you feel welcome – you feel like family. I still have a long way to go but I know I couldn’t be in better hands. I have friends that have recommended that have gone and they can’t thank me enough for the recommendation.

Only place I’ll go: In the past, we’ve had a hard time finding good medical care. My wife found Proliance via recommendation from her OB who had his hip replaced at Proliance. We have since had 2 surgeries each that have required intense physical therapy at Proliance in Issaquah. The net result is that I won’t go anywhere else in the future. My expectations have been exceeded by both the care I’ve received and the support to get through the PT. Sounds silly I suppose, but I feel like I’m treated like a person, not just a body part that needs fixing. I’ve worked with Emily specifically and her PTs are truly a standout, they are awesome, pushing you while supporting, plus have been completely connected with my surgeon and with each other. If you need care, this is a good choice.

Patrick understood how difficult it was for me to be sidelined and how frustrated I felt. He pushed me to work harder and celebrated with me when I would hit a goal. Patrick was realistic about timelines, knew when to push me and when to hold me back so I didn’t injure myself again. He also did a great job of making our sessions fun and different. I would highly recommend Proliance Sports Therapy & Rehabilitation. This group of people truly cares about your recovery, goals, physical and emotional well being and long term health. I now feel confident to trail run, bike, ski and have even learned how to rock climb!

Kyle Mark was amazing! He patiently rehabbed my knee back and specifically researched exercises that would support my love of tennis, after I tore my meniscus. I left after the expected period of time and was able to resume tennis. Unfortunately, I caused an additional issue within the knee while hiking shortly after recovery and, even though I had moved out-of-state, he suggested exercises to get me back on track. I am 100% back to normal and so thankful that he took the time and shared his knowledge with me. Proliance is lucky to have such a smart, caring and dedicated physical therapist in their office.


After finger surgery four years ago on my left hand and two years ago on my right hand. Stephanie helped me through many therapy appointments. She also instructed me on home exercises. She is very professional and will go the extra mile to get the results we both wanted. I would highly recommend her.
