Advanced Rheumatology & Arthritis Wellness Center provides hands-on physical therapy and supervised exercises to address acute injuries and chronic dysfunctions.

Pain-free movement is crucial to your quality of life. It affects your ability to earn a living, pursue your favorite activities and maintain your independence.

When simple movements become difficult due to injury or a chronic condition, the first reaction is usually to reduce activity and protect the affected area. In reality, movement and exercise may be exactly what is needed to feel better.

Physical therapists are experts in knowing how the body moves. As licensed health-care professionals, they can assess your condition and, based on your goals, create a personalized treatment plan to help you reach optimal musculoskeletal health. Additionally, because physical therapy addresses the cause of your pain and not just the symptoms, it provides a faster and more complete recovery. In some cases, it is also a viable and effective alternative to surgery and costly prescription medications.

The staff at Physical Rehabilitation Services has been serving local residents and their families for more than 25 years. All of their therapists practice the latest standard of care and each bring their areas of special interest to the practice making Physical Rehabilitation Services a well-rounded, comprehensive solution to helping you live active and pain free.
