Our Therapists

About Our Therapists
Our team of therapists offers an innovative approach to patient recovery and rehabilitation. Patients are guaranteed an appropriate amount of "hands-on" time with their therapist. This provides them with a high level of confidence and ensures that they are receiving the highest quality and most thorough treatment available. We believe that patient education is a critical component for returning you back to a functional and pain-free lifestyle. Our therapists spend the time needed teaching patients how to maximize their recovery rate by providing a comprehensive home exercise program.
