Union Physical Therapy offers a unique approach to the treatment of orthopedic conditions and vestibular dysfunction. Our team of well trained manual physical therapists offer an eclectic, whole body approach to addressing injury and movement dysfunction. Underlying movement dysfunction patterns are identified and addressed. Rarely are individual body parts treated in isolation.
Patients are assessed and treated in the most practical way possible using evidence based practice, advanced clinical examination techniques, manual therapy, movement education and exercise prescription.
