Decreasing subjective complaints

through improved movement

We are designed to move.  We are designed to be active.  We are designed to be pain-free.

We believe that during rehabilitation, the patient should be educated by their therapist in order to be able to maintain maximum flexibility and pain-free living long after our work ends.

Our therapists have successfully worked with all types of injuries and we work on patients of any age. Please see our services page for more information.
