One-on-one attention is directed at teaching and educating the patient in order to promote and maintain long term patient recovery.
Offering a wide variety of manual and exercise based treatment methods and incorporating passive treatment modalities such as heat, ice, ultrasound, and electric stimulation our team of providers is able to target areas of tension and spasm, correct joint stiffness and restore mobility and pain free movement.
