Welcome to Barclay Physical Therapy. Since opening in 1992, we’ve helped thousands of individuals with their rehabilitation process. We strive to deliver optimal results and accomplish our goal of helping patients regain control of their body and life and return to enjoying activities of daily living without pain and discomfort. In fact, according to Foto and Evicore/Landmark data, Barclay Physical Therapy ranks in the top 2% for shoulder treatment and top 5% for back pain treatment, nationally, against peers.

We accept more than 65 different insurance plans, including Blue Care Network, Health Alliance Plan, Molina and various commercial Medicaid plans. We offer semi-private treatment areas, ease of parking, ramp accessibility and are one of few clinics to offer pool therapy. We guarantee scheduled appointments within 24-48 hours of a call.

At Barclay Physical Therapy, we do not double-book clients. Patients can expect to receive one-on-one care by the same therapists on each visit, with a minimum of 45 minutes of direct care, which enables us to build meaningful relationships and maximize outcomes. Our philosophy is "Gain with Little or Minimal Pain." If you are in pain, then it's not fixing the problem and we need to try something else.

Our hands-on, personalized approach combined with our clinical know-how utilizing evidence-based techniques is the key to our success. Each staff member brings his or her own specialized area of expertise.Our experienced therapists provide excellence in care by compassionately listening to our patients, hearing their concerns, and learning what works and what doesn’t. We set personal goals and work in partnership with the client, his/her doctor, physical therapist, and family members and/or caregivers, to design an individualized program that specifically meets the unique needs of the patient. We work together as a team to address the root cause of the problem and adjust the physical therapy protocol until it’s the right fit.

At Barclay Physical Therapy, we empower the patient. We not only treat the individual, but we also teach. Education is a key component in patient recovery and prevention of re-injury. We strongly encourage patients and their families to access our website for useful information and links to resources, including videos. At the conclusion of treatment, patients are trained in and sent home with strategies to continue strengthening and improvement. We also offer maintenance therapy, at a nominal cost, to patients wishing to continue with exercises in the clinic setting after physical therapy ends.

Seventy-five percent of our patients are repeat clients. However, at Barclay Physical Therapy, patients are not just clients; they are members of our extended family and we know everyone by name. Call us now if you believe we can help you and experience the difference!

Patient Testimonials:

George P. - Rochester Hills, MI
"I went to Barclay for neck pain that I had and they helped a ton but after numerous imaging tests, it was determined by 2 Dr's that I needed 2 surgeries. Shoulder surgery and a neck fusion. After having intense shoulder surgery and a serious cervical neck fusion 3 months apart I was back at Barclay for therapy. I worked with Kathy Yax before and after my 2 surgeries and she's helped me in more ways than one. From disciplined, customized physical therapy, offering wise council as to what my body had been through, how muscles were connected, and how to strengthen all on my road to recovery. The entire Barclay team was kind and welcoming- helping me feel positive during tough times as I worked hard to heal and recover. I've been to other physical therapy facilities who's approach is "no pain, no gain" and I felt worse than before. Barclay's approach is to listen to their patients, offer wise council along with excellent, gentle care with the goal of healing. I've been riding my bike for the 1st time in 2 years! I would highly recommend Barclay Physical Therapy as the best in the business! They have your health in mind as a priority. Thanks Kathy and Barclay PT!" (Google 5/5)

Rose B. - Utica, MI
"Just completed my physical therapy at Barclay Physical Therapy in Rochester. I was suffering with knee pain from a torn meniscus and am happy to report that the pain is gone and I'm pretty much back to normal. Couldn't be more pleased with the therapy, the facility and the staff. Special thanks to Kathryn for taking such good care of me and really listening to me when I expressed what I was experiencing."

I. Thomas - Pontiac, MI
"Hello facebook I would luv to invite everyone who is suffering from any illnesses to come and get relief from Barclay Physical Therapy. I was in extreme pain and thought I was having a heart attack but that wasn't the case. Going through months of physical therapy elsewhere wasn't doing me any justice. But when I walked into the doors of Barclay Physical Therapy I experienced a new look on life I was able to move around and feel happy because I wasn't in extreme pain as I was before. I recommend everyone who is experiencing pain, anxiety, depression, or even hopelessness to not give up but please give this clinic a try and I promise u that u will not regret coming here. I would also like to thank Murali Sunkara, Kathryn Yax, the receptionist (forgive me for not posting her name but I can't remember it) and all the staff working there. Your's truly feeling relieved."

Merrillynn L. - Rochester, MI
“I have had PT before but I have never had such a thoughtful and kind series of exercises and such a thoughtful person helping me. I never waited for an appointment. They were always waiting for me and I'm a person who is always early. This was a great experience!”

Linda A. - Auburn Hills, MI
"Over the years, I have been to a few different physical therapy places but this is the best. They are friendly and accommodating regarding appointment times. I enjoy the one-on-one interaction working with a therapist. You feel that you are their only client. They work directly with you and make sure you are doing the exercises correctly for the most benefit. They want to find out what works best to help you improve. The staff is very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Even though I did not utilize pool therapy, it is nice to know that they have a pool on site." (Google 5/5)

Dannette F. - Utica, MI
"When I started coming to Barclay P.T. I was in so much pain from Degenerative disc C 6-7 that I was almost on my knees in tears. Murali and Kathy are absolutely wonderful. They are kind and knowledgeable and have helped relieve my pain tremendously. I would definitely recommend them for anyone that requires Physical Therapy." (Google 5/5)

Geri S. - Rochester Hills, MI
“I am a RN and had bad ankle injury. I found this PT center after researching and reading reviews. I attended this PT center for three months for the severely sprain ankle. My therapist Murali was wonderful, very professional and knowledgeable. I'm now back to my previous activities. Would recommended this therapy center for any injuries." (Facebook 5/5)

Dennis H. - Sterling Heights, MI
“I aggravated my lower spine while golfing causing severe muscle spasms that took me away from my favorite physical activity. I remembered that I had been treated at Barclay PT in the past for the same thing. I had simply quit doing my back exercises that I learned from Kathy Yax with the predictable outcome. Kathy took me back in and began PT right away and my spasm got under control at the time. When I resumed golfing after a few weeks I re aggravated the injury and the spasms became much worse. I called with that situation and was able to come in without an appointment. The best I can tell anyone is that this is a great facility staffed by people who really care that you get better. I have been treating with Lisa Guisty recently doing Pilates exercises with great results. Lisa, like Kathy and the rest of the staff that I have met are kind, caring and highly knowledgeable and professional. Thanks so much for your help ladies. I'm staying until I feel the best I can at age 73." (Facebook 5/5)

Faye A. - Rochester, MI
The Barclay PT-Rochester Hills staff were awesome! Special shout out to Kathy, Lisa and Murali. Before my mother had PT sessions, she could barely lift her right arm. But just after the first session, she noticed a big difference right away. Her therapists were very caring, considerate and mindful of my mother's PT needs. They made sure my mother was well enough before she was discharged. We are so very pleased with Barclay PT-Rochester Hills. (Google 5/5)

R. M. - Troy, MI
“It was back 2 years ago, March 2015, I had my first surgery for rotator cuff repair. I chose Barclay PT to guide me in my recovery. In January of this year, 2017, I had a second surgery for the same rotator cuff. The doctor went back in due to a portion of the first surgery that did not heal properly. Again, I came back to Barclay PT to take over my healing process. In 2015, Kathy handled my case and as then and now, she is certainly providing the most professional, quality care in seeing I get the best chance to become 100% as my body will allow. Along with her student, Marissa, I am looking forward to a great recovery. If I am ever asked my opinion for a therapy option, I would without a doubt recommend Barclay PT.”

Eric H. - Royal Oak, MI
“I came to Barclay PT suffering from a very tense neck, shoulders and back. Within 3 visits my range of motion had increased immensely. Kathy, Marissa and Tiffany were great! They made sure I received benefits from their services so that my time was not wasted. This clinic put me ahead of a money machine. That seems to be rare anymore. Thank you for your service - 5 star rating!”
