The skilled and experienced physical therapists at NWC assess your ailment and develop a treatment program to reduce your pain and maximize your function. Whether you have joint or muscle pain, spine pain, arthritis, fibromyalgia or a sports or work injury, we will get you back on track. We also work with pre- and post surgical clients. In the initial assessment, we are with you for an hour, one on one, to assess postural alignment, analyze your movement and assess joint mechanics and isolate weak muscles. Then we design your program with your goals in mind. We integrate physical therapy with fitness so you reach your full potential and stay healthy. Please schedule an appointment at 434-361-2650.
