We get you moving again.

At Back2Action Physical Therapy, our goal is to educate you so you can manage your symptoms and improve your quality of life.

Your therapy, your choice.

You need physical therapy that treats your whole body, not just local symptoms.

Hands-On, Whole Body Care

We have advanced training in a ground-breaking hands on technique (Myokinesthetics) that corrects nerve and muscle imbalances, ultimately helping the body perform optimally.

Personalized Treatment

Needing physical therapy can be stressful. We take the time to honor your feelings and truly listen, developing a treatment plan together.

Passionate & Efficient

We're passionate about what we do and never stop learning how to get you better in as short a time as possible.

Who We Help

We help people from 5 to 95 recover from athletic injuries, accidents, surgeries, and chronic conditions.

From professional NFL and NBA athletes to "weekend warriors" and every step in between, we can get you back to your game.

Specialized Hands-On Treatment

Myokinesthetics is a special hands-on treatment that corrects nerve and muscle imbalances throughout the body. It's a powerful and fast method to realign your system. You feel better and move better quickly.

Women's Health

Did you know that physical therapy is effective for treating incontinence and pain with intercourse? These things are not normal! All sessions are done fully clothed in a private room. Most women feel significantly better after just 3-4 visits.

Women’s health services include: pelvic pain, tailbone pain, pain with intercourse, incontinence, prenatal and postpartum.


We treat arm and leg lymphedema. We also provide post-mastectomy care. If your surgery has left you with pain, limitations in shoulder movement, and discomfort from the scar, we can effectively treat those things.

"Complications following my mastectomy and reconstruction surgery resulted in scarring and muscle tightness, affecting the symmetry of my implants. With only a few visits, I had improvement in appearance, comfort and self-esteem. The therapists were attentive, professional, and caring." -Brenda S.

Barb Pranger Park, PT


I've always had high aspirations. From a very young age, I knew I wanted to help people and had a calling in the field of medicine. In 7th grade my mom introduced me to the field of physical therapy, and I was sold.

I had wanted my own clinic ever since I was in PT school. I like being outside the box and being able to treat the way I know is best for my patients.

There are three things that I absolutely love about being a PT:

  1. 1
    I like solving challenging problems, and finding the source of my patient's symptoms.
  2. 2
    I love teaching. With my patients, I get to use simple analogies to explain complicated medical information.
  3. 3
    I get to be a coach. I love motivating, inspiring, and helping people to reach their best potential.

Also, I love to laugh. Human beings need to take care of each other, and attitude of laughter and light-hardheartedness makes all the difference!

Barb is lifelong Iowan and devoted Jayhawks fan. Her family is of utmost importance to her. Her daughter Elizabeth is in medical school, and her son Andrew is a professional dancer.

Barb received her Bachelor's in Exercise Science from the University of Kansas in 1992. While in college, she was an 11 time All-American and world-ranked swimmer.

Barb got her MPT degree from the University of Iowa in 1995. In addition to her formal training, she has pursued ongoing certifications. Some include:

  • Myokinesthetic Certified Therapist

What Our Patients Are Saying

Easy to build rapport

"Three times in the past 7 months I've needed PT, and each time I come back to Barb, even though my doctor has tried to send me elsewhere. Barb is always smiling, up to date in her field and knowledgeable. It's easy to build rapport for her and if I need PT in the future, Barb's my gal!"

A complete turnaround

"My husband has had 5 back surgeries. When he started to get more pain in his back and leg, his surgeon told us he couldn't have more surgery and introduced us to Barb. We were afraid he'd end up in a wheelchair. But, with myokinesthetic therapy from Barb, Clarence was able to walk better and be active in his retired lifestyle. No need for a wheelchair!"

Clarence & Carol H


The most help I've had

"Six years ago I had surgery and spent 2 weeks in the hospital. I came out with a diagnosis of neuropathy and had difficulty walking. The hospital therapy just gave me some exercises, and my legs were getting worse. After seeing Barb for Myokinesthetics, I am walking better and can feel my legs again. It's the most help I've had in years."

Back to action

"The Back to Action system has me feeling like myself again. Every time I go I see a noticeable improvement in my athletic performance."

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a doctor's referral for physical therapy?

You can receive physical therapy without a referral from your doctor, and most insurance companies do not require a referral. However, if you have MEDICARE or MEDICAID, you must have a referral for your insurance to be billed.

If you have private insurance, you do NOT need to see a doctor first. We can still bill your insurance.

What insurance do you accept?

We accept most major insurances, Medicare, and Medicaid.

Can I receive care if I don't have insurance or if my insurance doesn't cover physical therapy?

Yes. You can come for physical therapy if you don't have insurance or if your insurance doesn't cover physical therapy. We have a cash rate for evaluation and treatment.

What should I wear to my appointments?

It's best to come dressed in comfortable, loose fitting clothes. Sweatpants, joggers, or leggings are ideal. If you are coming for a knee injury, wear or bring shorts. If you're a woman coming for a shoulder injury, wear or bring a sports bra or sleeveless top.
