He has developed his own proactive approach to wellness that highlights the science of physical therapy as part science that enhances the natural healing process of the body. For each patient, he sets functional goals with an individual care plan while staying in contact with care team.  Dr. John employs a hands-on approach that combines the best manual therapy techniques available with traditional therapeutic activities. He develops a guided structure program for a customized exercise program and regiment, tracking the progress from the initial evaluation to each re-examination.

When he opened the Caldwell location, his main objective was to offer individualized, hands-on treatment. Dr. John takes time with each patient.  He considers necessary to get to know and understand the patient, their fitness goals and how they are seeking to benefit from physical therapy. After evaluation, he  creates a personalized program of therapeutic exercise and kinetic movement.  One of the key elements used at LightPort® Physical Therapy & Spa to achieve best outcomes is the use of manual therapy for most patients. In addition to using manual therapy and massage therapy for patients other services are available via their spa services and they include Deep tissue sports massage, medical massage or prenatal/postnatal massage for individuals who call to schedule an appointment with specialized and licensed staff!

Best Physical Therapy Ever!

John De Hoyos and his staff are caring professionals in a tranquil environment. He individualizes the therapy to fit the medical needs of his patients. I have Parkinson's Disease and have had two knee replacements within the past year. He does not use the "cookie cutter" approach to provide a therapeutic plan for a specific diagnosis. I've been elsewhere, and I know how special Light Port is!

Best Physical Therapy Ever!!

I am 29 years old. I have had lower back chronic pain for over 13 years. For the past 8 years I have felt like I was not in my 20s at all. I always found myself really hard to get up in the morning or even hard to walk for less than a mile because I will always end up having really bad pains. I have tried going to chiropractors, received epidural shots, back decompression treatments and nothing helped! Today was my third time coming here and I started to feel a big difference! Because of this, I decided to write a review for those who are going through the same problems that I had. Please try it, you have nothing to lose. You will for sure feel better after the second time. I really can’t wait to get up from the floor normally after playing with my son. I really feel blessed to be here. I recommend it 1000%
