About PTC

PTC specializes in movement of the musculoskeletal system. Movement of the spine: neck and back, and extremities: the shoulder, elbow, wrist, fingers, hand, TMJ, hip, knee, and ankle may become limited due to a trauma, overuse, or disease. Musculoskeletal dysfunctions can include painful, inflamed or torn soft tissue: muscle, bursae, tendon, ligament, cartilage and connective tissue. Joint mobility may become painful or limited from injured soft tissue or direct trauma. Symptoms may begin slow and gradual over time or the onset may be quite sudden.

Emphasis in your rehabilitation is placed on understanding your specific problem and your active participation in recovery. The history and onset of symptoms described by you, the patient, as well as a hands-on assessment by the therapist is essential in determining the best treatment plan to achieve optimal results.

Prompt, personal communication is maintained with your doctor, employer, coach or any other important participant in your recovery until you are back in action.

Our Goal is to Help You Reach Yours!
