- Observing your ability to move, stand, walk and do other movements

Great office staff and Physical therapists. It’s a kind and welcoming atmosphere and very aesthetically pleasing inside. I’ve enjoyed my sessions here. They help you work at your place and keep your safety in mind. I tend to over exert myself and they help me dial it back. I highly recommend this place
