Our knowledgeable and compassionate physical therapy staff will work with you to get you back to doing what you enjoy most.

We offer early morning and evening appointments at five convenient locations. To schedule an appointment, please call 315.349.5558, and our friendly staff will gladly assist you with the paperwork and other details. Before being seen, you will need a prescription from your doctor.

Most patients can be seen the same day or within 48 hours. Your privacy and comfort are priorities. Remember to wear comfortable clothes and be prepared to complete a brief health history form.

At your initial evaluation, a trained therapist will determine your needs and develop a specialized treatment plan. Special tests will be performed to identify the basis for your movement issues. Our therapists have a solid knowledge of manual therapy and will make a clinical decision on what type of treatment will best meet your needs. Physical therapy requires active participation to decrease your pain and improve your movement. Each appointment will last one hour. Your progress will be tracked and measured by your therapist, and you will be updated on your functional improvement regularly.

Physical therapy is a specialty service that evaluates and treats muscle and joint problems of the spine and extremities. Our physical therapists work to restore normal mobility, strength and function with your individual goals in mind.
