Arm Physical Therapy
Recover Faster. Long-Term Effective Arm Pain Relief
The place is boutique, each therapist is working with you the entire time (not jumping around from client to client), and it is a great experience. I have been to places where the physical therapy aide works with you, but when you have the actual physical therapist the entire time, they can answer your questions, explain in detail what they are doing, and what they expect from you. In addition, they also follow up with you either via telephone or an email to see how things are progressing along.
