Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Candy "Individualized 1-on-1 care delivered by a board-certfied and fellowship trained orthpaedic manual physical therapist.  Patients are scheduled for as much time as their particular condition requires and we do not double book patients.  This individualized attention can help alleviate acute and chronic pain that has not responded to prior physical therapy, injections, or event surgery.  Movement 4 Life Physical Therapy emphasizes patient education, manual therapy, and exercise to correct dysfunctional posture and movement habits in order to help get you back to doing the things that make life worth living."
