Prime Choice Physical Therapy

Don’t let pain become your new normal.

Prime Choice Physical Therapy is a self-pay physical therapy clinic that specializes in dry needling, fall-risk reduction, and treating muscular pain across the body following an injury, surgery, accident, or from pain due to a medical condition.

Here are the most common pains we treat:

Back Pain

Approximately 80% of people will experience at least one episode of back pain in their lifetime. Back pain is one of the most common reasons why people go to the doctor, miss work, or stop participating in their regular activities. It is the most common condition seen in physical therapy and can have symptoms such as pain in the buttock or legs, nerve pain in the legs, muscle spasms, muscle tension, numbness and tingling in the arms and legs. 

Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain can be caused by repetitive overhead activities, falling, straining to reach for something, lifting something heavy, or improper exercise techniques. Other times, shoulder pain can occur for no apparent reason. The goal is to restore normal mobility and strength to the shoulder and maximize function.

Hip & Glute Pain

Hip pain can be caused by many factors. Often, you may start feeling hip pain for no apparent reason. Sometimes recreation or sports puts repetitive strain on the hip causing pain. Because the hip is a major weight-bearing joint, arthritis of the hip is a common problem. The hip is responsible for such functional activities as walking, running, rising from sitting, and climbing stairs.

How We Work

Unfamiliar with how a self-pay clinic works?

Did you know in North Carolina (and many other states) you don’t need a doctor’s referral to see a Physical Therapist? You also can choose who you want to see! We choose to be a self-pay clinic so we can help control costs for our patients and offer better 1:1 care.

Happy Clients

“Dr. Graham is fantastic! Before the dry needling, she took the time to talk about my issue, did some stretching and showed me some exercises to do to make my knee stronger. Thanks to her, my knee pain is much better and I would recommend her to anyone with muscle or joint pain. She is also super nice and fun to talk to.”



“I could barely turn my head before coming to see Ayana. I had been to massage therapy and taken a ton of ibuprofen and acetaminophen. Those eased the pain for a bit, but never stopped the problem. I have had a significant increase in mobility since visiting. More importantly, my neck doesn’t hurt 24/7 like it did before. I have already mentioned Ayana to a few friends and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.”



“Ayana is amazing! I experienced relief from pain I’ve had for over a year after my first session. I can’t wait to go back for more needle therapy. It’s magical!”
