Get to Know Strong Oaks Physical Therapy

Posted in December 16, 2022

Your primary care physician may recommend that you visit a physical therapist post-accident, surgery, or illness if your mobility, flexibility, and range of motion have been affected. A physical therapist is a medical specialist who has undergone years of education and training to help people who are injured manage pain, improve mobility, and restore range of motion. Physical therapists are an integral part of post-injury rehabilitation, and their treatment encompasses preventative therapies, physical assessments, therapeutic exercises and stretches, and treatment of chronic conditions, illnesses, and injuries. At Strong Oaks Physical Therapy, we want every patient in need to have access to reliable, affordable, compassionate, and experienced physical therapists in Vermont. To schedule an initial appointment or evaluation, you don’t need a physician referral! Simply call us today at (802) 424-1434.
