Our Physical Therapists work to improve function and physical health of individuals with various debilitating conditions. We commonly treat people with pain associated with arthritis, back/neck pain, sports or work-related injury, and post surgical procedures to improve motion and strength while decreasing pain. We also treat people with difficulty walking, generalized weakness, impairments associated with a stroke, as well as many other diagnoses.
