Meet Our Owners…

32 years ago Linda and Ira fell in love, got married and decided to merge their dreams of creating a physical therapy practice that would be the type of office where they would want to send their family and friends. They imagined a warm, friendly and fun environment combined with a group of therapists immensely talented and smart with unique clinical skills and devotion to their patients.

Well almost 32 years later and 30000 patient names in our database we are still embracing and appreciating our patients every day, cultivating the skills of our therapists and trying to stay one or two steps ahead of the business of healthcare. So many of our patients are husband and wife, parents and kids, friends of friends and family of physicians.

Try us out, join our extended circle of patients, multigenerational families coming in when their bodies hurt or are having trouble doing the things they like to do in their daily or recreational lives. We are committed to exceeding your expectations and making your therapy a positive experience.
