Physical Therapists

Our Physical Therapy Team at Orthopaedics East & Sports Medicine Center have an excellent reputation in helping our patients decrease their pain, improve their function and mobility, prevent injury, or recover from a disability.  They work along with your care providers to establish a plan of care involving a number of techniques, treatments, modalities, and/or exercise programs to meet the specific needs and goals of each patient.
