Physical therapy patients usually experience increased strength, range of motion and functionality in addition to reduced pain and instability. Most patients treat for at least four weeks before our providers reevaluate them. Treatment plans often vary in length and frequency depending on the diagnosis and the patient’s response to PT. While patients can see a Physical Therapist without a referral in some circumstances, we require referrals for the vast majority. 

We also offer sports training for athletes at all levels.
