Welcome to
Barkman and Smith Physical Therapy
Bedford / Irving, Texas


Partners in your pain-free movement

Our skilled physical therapists stress one-on-one manual therapy techniques as the means to help you restore your active lifestyle after an accident, illness or surgery.

Through our two physical therapy clinics in the Dallas/Fort Worth area of Texas, we strive to be partners with you to help you recover pain-free movement.

We offer evidence-based treatments for orthopedics (such as neck and back pain), neurological rehabilitation, gerontology and cancer rehabilitation, among many other services.

Our customized programs follow an intensive assessment and include home-exercise components for a speedy and complete recovery.

    I have only had three sessions for back pain with the Physical Therapists at Barkman and Smith, with very satisfactory results. I actually helped my husband with yard work today, and could bend down with no pain! I could not have worked that hard without having the therapy, along with home exercises. Thanks, Michael, Paul, Gabe and Andrea!

    I have been a returning customer since April 2004. Most of my injuries were caused by playing aggressive tennis. Barkman and Smith's staff have helped me get back on the court and into life following foot, knee, shoulder, back, sciatic nerve, and piriformus pains. The environment is totally accepting, caring, supportive, encouraging, and technically competent. I am also drawn to seeking all my physical therapy at Barkman and Smith because of their respect for spiritual faith and healing. When I am being treated I do not feel like I am a patient but a suffering person that is getting encouraged by a multitude of friends.

    I had a knee replacement in June and started my rehab program with Smith and Barkman which concluded in early October. I was very impressed with the successful rehab support I received but also with the positive attitude of the staff. They are the best, everyone works to make it as positive as possible.

    Barkman & Smith is the best physical therapy I have ever had. They have one-to-one therapiy meaning during the entire physical therapy session there is a therapist working only with you. I’ve unfortunately experienced a lot of physical therapy in my lifetime and they are by far the best place I have ever visited. Everyone is so pleasant to work with and very helpful. I highly recommend them.

    This is AWESOME! How they are dedicated to their assignments. At their direction, you begin to feel special. You realize what a UNIQUE experience this has become...Finally, when the routines are finished for the day, you are taken to a clean table for the cool down with a PTA. What a luxury this is. Thank you Barkman & Smith for this "UNIQUE EXPERIENCE". B.H.

    What a joyful operation and crew… It was fun well rounded and gave me the recovery therapy I needed following total knee replacement… My operated on leg match or exceeded the range of motion of my other leg when I was finished … the staff was welcoming, knowledgeable, prepared and kept you focused during the sessions. It was a grateful and memorable experience that I will never forget… Congratulations, and thank all of you for a wonderful experience,

    I actually looked forward to PT at Barkman & Smith - not the pain part but the people part and seeing steady improvement. My experience was three separate periods over about an eight year span which included two knee replacements and back surgery. Ron and Vincent, the other therapists and the staff are all outstanding. They made a challenging situation fun, helped me laugh when I wanted to whine and to achieve the progress needed. I can’t imagine going anywhere else. I’m happy to give them a 5 Star rating!

    My experience with Barkman & Smith was outstanding. I had sixteen sessions for a cervical strain, and not only did their therapists resolve my problem, but I left with my neck and shoulders feeling better than they have in years. I highly recommend them if you need physical therapy.

    God bless this clinic. The staff is friendly, sympathetic, and caring. The staff is very knowledgeable. They are also willing to dance with me. If I need more therapy I would return here.

    I went to B&S in 2012 and again in 2013 with two knee replacements and they were the best. They make a painful, challenging situation easier by helping you feel hopeful. They help you find the positive, "can do" attitude it takes to accomplish your goals. Now I'm back again in 2017 following back surgery - same positive environment- professional, knowledgeable, staff of therapists. I know it sounds strange to say you enjoy going to PT - but I do enjoy the experience because it works and the people are so great. Highly recommend them!
