Our therapists hold advanced certifications that allow us to help you get back to the life you love.

Our therapists work one on one with each client in order to fully understand your limitations, complaints, concerns, and fears. We take time to teach you about your injury and what you can do about it! Our therapists and clients have the opportunity to form partnerships on the road to recovery. We are delighted to provide optimal physical therapy care for new and existing patients. We are located at 135 Route 27, Raymond, NH 03077 (across from Lamprey Healthcare).
