Our fifth location in historic Downtown Newburgh, was established in order to provide a change from the norm of physical therapy in the region. We wanted people to be able to see the difference between just getting physical therapy and having a physical therapist – one professional who listens and understands your personal needs and takes time to explain what is going on and why in order to provide the most effective care. This clinic provides an optimal place for rehabilitation following sports injury, work injury, post-operative care, return to activity, and daily living. Derek is excited to bring personalized physical therapy and personal training services to the people of this region.
Hours: 7:00am - 5:30pm Monday - Wednesday, Friday (Closed Thursdays)
