THE PRACTICE

Optimal Fit is a unique Physical Therapy experience that caters to each individual patient's needs. After evaluation, a specialized program will be designed for each patient to address their problems and immediately start to work toward their personalized goal. 

Individuals present with unique sets of movement dysfunction will immediately begin the process of implementing corrective exercises, manual therapy, and patient education to carry over these changes into daily life with ease and a new understanding of proper alignment and body mechanics. 

The goal of every program, being not only to reduce and eliminate pain, but to teach patients how to move their body in a way that prevents future injury and optimize function and performance.
