Outpatient Sports & Physical Therapy

Our Team

Our team treats patients with a variety of orthopedic injuries, post-surgical diagnoses and neurological conditions. We use a multidisciplinary approach that includes physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy. Our experienced staff members come from diverse backgrounds and include certified hand therapists and certified spine therapists.

We begin your care with a thorough, one-on-one evaluation, and create a specific treatment plan personalized to fit your unique needs and goals. We focus on educating you about your injury or condition, creating with you an individualized home exercise program, reducing your pain, helping you return to your prior activity level, and preventing a recurrence of your injury or condition. We work closely with our patients and physicians to achieve optimal results.
