To help patients achieve their full potential, therapists use a combination of manual techniques, stretching and strengthening exercises to improve functional movement, muscular endurance and overall physical performance whether your goal is to stand up from a siting position or run a marathon.  Physical therapists focus on movement for health, fulfilling people’s performance potential and changing the lives of patients through progressive strengthening.  Stay active as you age to keep your muscles strong and your joints healthy!
