Polaris Rehabilitation is a physical therapist owned private practice specializing in foot & ankle, and back & neck care. We focus on patient education, prevention, and maintenance as we believe that rehabilitation is an ongoing process. We are committed to providing the highest quality care through effective problem solving and well directed treatment. We have experienced and knowledgeable Physical Therapist and Pedorthist who listen and attend to the physical needs of each patient we treat.
Our practice focuses on the ongoing assessment of the whole body mechanics starting from the ground up. We believe that proper body alignment decreases the strain on the joints and musculature of the lower extremity and the spine enabling the body to function efficiently and with less or no pain.
We are open Monday to Friday from 8:30 AM to 2:30 PM. Saturdays are by appointment only.
