The Physical Therapist
Physical therapists are health care professionals who diagnose and treat individuals of all ages, from newborns to the elderly, who have medical problems or other health-related conditions that limit their abilities to move and perform functional activities in their daily lives. Physical Therapists examine each individual and develop a plan of care using treatment techniques to promote the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function, and prevent disability.
Our Mission Statement
It is our mission to provide our patients with the highest quality of physical therapy in the area. It is our goal to consider the whole person and not just the diagnosis. We listen to the needs of our patients in order to assist them in reaching their health and physical goals. We focus on our patients’ well-being and getting the results for which they are striving.
