About Advantage Physical Therapy

APT-About-header2

Advantage Physical Therapy was established in 1995 with the goal of providing personalized and comprehensive care for orthopedic and vestibular rehabilitation. Treatments are provided by the same therapist at every session to maintain continuity. Each treatment plan is designed to allow patients to achieve their rehab goals, attain a high level of function, and prevent recurrence of symptoms.

Our staff consists of highly experienced and trained physical therapists, many of them with over 20 years of experience. We regularly attend continuing education courses to maintain expertise in the field. Our experience, along with a comprehensive treatment plan allows us to achieve positive long-term outcomes and cost-effective treatment.

We also believe that patients must take an active role in their rehabilitation to maximize their healing potential. Therefore, each patient is instructed in an individual home exercise program to perform in conjunction with treatment in the clinic. Working together, we believe we can obtain faster results in a much more cost-effective manner.
