Our Caring Staff, from the front desk to the treating professionals, will listen to you, educate you and empower you to return to good health in as short a period of time as possible. Our focus is on providing individualized attention to meet your needs. We value your time and enjoy our time with you.




Your reasons for seeking physical therapy or having been referred for it by your doctor may include limited movement or functional ability, often associated with pain. This may have occured due to medical conditions such as arthritis, sports injuries, workplace injuries or car accidents, post-operative situations or just the normal stress and strain of everyday life.

Your successful rehabilitation begins with a thorough evaluation by an experienced physical therapist that will search to discover not only what symptoms exist that require treatment, but what might be the root cause of these problems. For example, your headache may be caused by neck muscle spasm or a TMJ dysfunction, or your "hip" pain by a low back condition.

An appropriate treatment plan is devised on the basis of this evaluation. While a full gym is available for supervised exercise sessions, our specialty is hands-on manual therapy conducted in separate treatment rooms. This may include massage, mobilization of soft tissues and joints, myofascial release and manually applied range of motion and strengthening exercises. Various modalities are offered for reduction of muscle spasm, pain, inflammation and swelling. These may include electrical stimulation, ultrasound, ice and moist heat, iontophoresis, etc.

To help maintain good health and prevent future problems, we will instruct you in such things as a home exercise program and proper posture and body mechanics.
