This is what every physical therapy experience is supposed to be. Hands-on. Intelligent. Caring.
PT Central has the greatest therapists! The staff is kind, welcoming, and thoughtful. I wouldn’t go anywhere else.
If you’re looking for someone caring to help get you back to normal… you must come to PT Central.
I will always come to PT Central. If I could, I would rate it more than 5 Stars. These people deserve a higher rating.
This is the best experience I’ve ever had. They’re extremely knowledgeable and truly care about helping people.
