The goal of physical therapy is to help you return to an active lifestyle, whether that consists of competitive athletics, work, and hobbies, or simply going through your day without pain. Physical therapy may also help prevent mobility loss before it occurs.
Physical therapists (PTs) often ask patients to use exercise equipment like bikes and treadmills. In addition to exercising the affected area, a PT also may treat it with heat or cold, electrical stimulation, ultrasound, massage, and even aquatic therapy. Apart from the frequency, each session may last between 30 and 60 minutes in length. If you have just sustained an injury or undergone surgery, it is important to understand why regular visits are necessary.
Our goal is to help you improve the strength and range of motion in different parts of your body, including the limbs, bands, back, and neck.

We believe that physical rehabilitation is the cornerstone of successful recovery.
