We work directly with your doctor to develop and implement a patient plan of care on an individual basis geared towards the patient’s personal goals. We treat surgical and non-surgical diagnoses through implementation of manual techniques, therapeutic exercises, modalities, and functional activities.

We emphasize continuing education and training for the staff which furthers our commitment to learning new and innovative techniques and helping our patients return to an active lifestyle.
What to expect at your first appointment in physical therapy:
Your first appointment will take about an hour to one and a half hours. Your therapist will ask you questions about your symptoms, past medical history, medications, occupation, hobbies, and personal goals you would like to achieve during your time in physical therapy. The therapist will perform tests and take measurements to help set goals and gather information to improve your functional performance. Please wear comfortable clothing that allows you to move freely. Also, it is better to wear sneakers or tennis shoes. If you have a co-pay, it is due at the time of service and please bring a calendar so you can make follow up appointments.
