PHYSICAL THERAPY & FITNESS
Seasoned athletes or weekend warriors alike can experience injuries resulting from direct trauma or overuse.

Habitual postures or improper body mechanics at home or work are also often contributing factors. Your therapist will evaluate you using a whole body approach to address the root of the problem and prevent recurrence.
