Our Physical Therapy Team

When you work with our physical therapists, you’re working with some of the most highly skilled and trained specialists in the area. Our therapists focus on improving your movement, mobility, and strength to restore, maintain, and promote optimal physical function. This is accomplished in various ways, including exercise on land or in our therapy pools, manual techniques, therapeutic modalities and education.

Do your physical therapists provide education to schools and civic groups?

Yes! Our team is very active in the community and often provides lectures. If you have a topic of interest, please contact us at (203) 230-9226. Examples of topics we have spoken about include balance, preparing for joint replacement and avoiding concussions.
