Advanced Physical Therapy & Massage thoroughly evaluates muscle imbalances, strength, range of motion,  postural asymmetries, and symptoms that may raise a “red flag.” The patient is treated as a “whole” to address the cause of the patient’s symptoms. The goal is to return the patient to the highest level of function with the least amount of pain as possible. We also try to return athletes to competition as quickly as is safely possible.  Sue Bransky, physical therapist, has freed many patients from pain and limited motion. Sue’s knowledge of manual therapy techniques, modalities, exercise instruction, and constant monitoring of soft tissue tightness ensure that you will be in competent hands.  Sue is empathetic to your pain, and understands how frustrating dealing with chronic pain can be.

You have a choice for your physical therapy provider.  We provide close to an hour of “hands-on” treatment from a highly skilled clinician. We communicate with your physician with written evaluations/progress notes, and sometimes verbally. We welcome inquiries from you or your physician.  Physician referrals are required for Medicare, but are not required for most other insurers.
