In addition to offering Physical Therapy we also offer Nutrition Therapy by our experienced Registered Dietitian, Certified Nutritionist. Nutrition Therapy can help by optimizing healing from injury, surgery, and improve overall health and wellness.

FACT: What you eat can impact how quickly you heal from injury or surgery.
