Welcome to Basic Healing Physical Therapy, One Therapist, Treating One Patient.

About Us

We are a family-owned facility providing one to one personal care that is required for optimal quality treatments to regain your health and resolve your pain. We are unlike the corporate chains that treat multiple patients to one therapist, which usually and unfortunately results in inferior care. The current trend appears to be to pack as many patients as possible within one hour or less by utilizing 3 or more PT technicians and being "overseen" by only one physical therapist. At Basic Healing you get ONE licensed physical therapist treating ONE patient the entire treatment session. We are one of the only physical therapy practices in Nevada that provides one to one treatments. Our method is to provide quality hands on therapy treatments, coupled with specific stretching and exercises and customize a physical therapy program tailored to your needs. We have established a reputation for quality care in orthopedics, geriatrics, sports, post stem cell/PRP procedures, and wellness/nutrition.

Physical Therapy Henderson Services 2
”My main objective is to help patients avoid orthopedic surgery, as well as to rehabilitate after cervical, lumbar, hip, knee, foot, or shoulder surgery and injury.”
LARRY FLISSER, PT/OWNER

Physical therapy is based on the findings of the initial evaluation, as we evaluate your movement patterns and identify any dysfunctions in the muscles or joints, then we apply manual hands-on treatment and therapeutic exercise interventions to address the dysfunction and restore normal movement. These patterns are specific to each person and need to be addressed for that specificity. Our physical therapists are known in Henderson for unparalleled one to one care, not only serving the patients of the greater Henderson community, but home-care seniors, and top athletes in Nevada. Basic Healing Physical Therapy offers personalized treatments in a friendly, holistic, and supportive environment. Whether you are a patient or a referring physician, you can be confident that Basic Healing Physical Therapy provides the most comprehensive physical therapy care in the Las Vegas area.

The areas we specialize in deep tissue therapeutic massage, joint manipulation, joint mobilization, manual stretching, and muscle strengthening. We also utilize therapies based on the McKenzie protocol, Yoga, Pilates and neurological muscle retraining to encourage changes in the muscle tone and balancing of the entire musculoskeletal system. In addition, we offer nutrition counseling for optimal health and weight loss.

About the Owner

I received my degree at the University of Central Florida, Orlando and was raised in New York City. I have worked as a licensed Physical Therapist in 4 states and have been providing direct patient care for 20 years. I have worked in various settings with proven strengths in orthopedic and geriatric hands-on physical therapy treatments. I am well-versed in human anatomy and biology, and my patients know they can come to me with any questions and receive evidence-based detailed answers. I am also outgoing and personable, which helps put my patients at ease. My passion for physical therapy stems from a longstanding interest in how the body works and in helping people understand how to move properly to avoid injury to the best of their ability.
