Physical Therapy Clinic

Our skilled physical therapists can evaluate and treat your condition using the most effective rehabilitation program possible, bringing together a treatment strategy that addresses psychological, social and physical aspects of your pain or disability. We pride ourselves at looking at the whole person, as often a foot or elbow problem starts in the spine (or the hip, or knee or shoulder), with the goal of reducing your pain and improving your ability to function normally in your life.
