Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Diffily "My care philosophy is to treat the whole patient. While care is often focused on a specific injury or issue, it is imperative to always look at the entire body and assess what else is going on that Physical Therapy can help. My goal for PT is always based on what the patient's goals are. Those goals can range from walking safely in the home to high level skiing or rock climbing. Treatments are always guided by what those goals happen to be. "
