Welcome to On Your Way Physical Therapy
My name is Sue Torrence, MS, PT, ATC and I have over 20 years of outpatient orthopedic and sports medicine experience to assess and create an individual plan of care to help meet your goals. I provide customized and comprehensive physical therapy services in your home and utilize your own space, or provide online telehealth appointments. I will bring equipment to safely initiate care, including a treatment table, and provide recommendations for any materials to assist in your care. My services are paid at the time of visit, and can be turned into insurance companies depending on your personal coverage.
Let me come to you, minimize these stresses, and get you
On Your Way!

Hip Education and Helpful Tools: Surgery and Care
During my practice at a local sports medicine facility, I developed and managed our hip rehabilitation team, ranging from nonoperative to post-operative care with hip preservation procedures, including hip scopes, Periacetabular Osteotomies (PAOs) and Derotational Femoral Osteotomies (DFOs), to name a few. Nonoperative care includes assessing muscle deficits and neuromuscular dysfunction surrounding the hip, pelvis, and core region specific to you and your issue. With post-operative care, I coordinated protocols for Arthroscopic Hip Surgeries and Periacetabular Osteotomies (PAOs), and have over 13 years of specializing in treating these procedures. I can initiate your rehab at home, and transition you to an outpatient facility at your convenience.
Telemedicine may be used provided you are located within the State of Colorado for physical therapy assessments and treatments. While hands on is not performed in an assessment, there are many biomechanical issues I can identify via live interactions with patients to help initiate, modify or address formwork with home programs. I can consult and assess concerns related to injury status and care. I can work in conjunction with traditional physical therapy if schedules do not allow for consistent in-clinic care to allow care to continue to move forward.
Physical Therapy Assessment
During your assessment, we will discuss the results of your physical exam and formulate a plan of care based on these findings and your goals. Treatment will be initiated after your assessment concludes. I encourage a family member to be present during your session to assist in your care.
Physical Therapy Treatments
Your treatment program revolves around assessments of your progress. There is no "set recipe" for your plan and interventions. You choose where you'd like to be seen within your home. Whether it is in your home gym, outside in your yard, or a garage stall, I will treat you wherever you are comfortable! If you are initiating physical therapy at home after surgery, as I ask that you please provide a Physical Therapy Protocol related to your surgical intervention.
Treatment areas within the Colorado include the City of Boulder, Louisville, Lafayette, and Superior. Areas of the following cities are also serviced: Erie (west of County Line, south of Arapahoe Rd), Broomfield (west of Lowell), Westminster (west of Federal) and Arvada (east of Indiana, north of 64th). Please contact me if you have any questions.
I believe that a thorough assessment will guide an individualized comprehensive rehab program, and not a "one size fits all" approach.
All the Tools You Need to Succeed
By coming to your home or seeing you online, I take the guesswork out of "how will I do this at home?" or "I don't think I have the space for this..." I can assess what tools may be useful in your care, and optimize use of space in your home to address your specific deficits. In addition, I bring into use your exercise background, your physical activities, to help you achieve your goals.
One of the greatest assets I offer my patients is education. When you have a deeper understanding of how your injury affects your musculoskeletal system, then you will have a greater appreciation of the time and energy dedicated to your rehab to maximize your outcome. My goal is to identify and address local deficits, progress them into your general function, and get you On Your Way!
