During this time, we are keenly focused on your safety while helping you feel better. Our centers are open and here to serve those in need. The Department of Homeland Security and state governments have deemed physical therapy an essential component of health care during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. We are taking extensive preventative measures, guided by the CDC, to protect our patients and employees who enter our centers.

Should you not feel comfortable visiting our centers, at this time, we are also offering telerehab services so you can easily connect with one of our licensed therapists through we-based technology that is HIPAA compliant. Contact us today for more information.
