“I believe that the challenges before us are small compared to the strength within each of us. Each person is responsible for his/her own potential in life. An individualized Physical Therapy program in a supportive and challenging environment can help a person find his/her inner strength necessary to recover from injury and to return to a productive and enjoyable lifestyle”.
