PREVENTIVE PHYSICAL THERAPY
Physical therapy can be used to prevent injuries from happening. Preventative physical therapy keeps patients active in doing what they love, and makes every day tasks more manageable.
ACTIVE RELEASE TECHNIQUE
ART is a hands on treatment that allows a therapist to further diagnose and treat many conditions such as headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica and more.
