“I believe movement is medicine. I am excited by the field of physical therapy because there is always something new to learn about the human experience through movement. However, no two people are alike, and I enjoy the process of working with each individual to improve mobility and skill so they find a way to move well. It is then that the movement is therapeutic.”

Patient Testimonials

Carlee was just superb.

She took the time to tailor the treatment exactly to my needs, she was very skilled and knowledgeable, and she treated the underlying problem–a bunion–in a way that resulted in an outcome that a podiatrist told me could not happen (the effects of the bunion have been lessened significantly, and I have exercises that I will continue to use to keep it that way). All the staff were so nice.

Praise for Burke and Carlee

I loved that appointments were a full hour one on one with the therapist. That is extremely rare to come by these days but shows how much quality patient care is top priority.
