Our Background
Physical therapists are skilled professionals whose education includes intensive study of human growth and development with specific emphasis on movement and recovery from injury.

Physical therapists are assisted in their work by physical therapist assistants and physical therapy aides, who work under their direction and supervision.

Physical therapists study:

  • human anatomy (body structure)
  • kinesiology (the science of human movement)
  • neurology (the nervous system)
  • the practical application of anatomy, kinesiology and neurology to physical rehabilitation.

Our Credentials
All of our physical therapists have graduated from fully accredited colleges and universities, often with advanced degrees, and have passed a national certification examination.

Physical therapists are licensed by the state of Maine and are required to stay current in their area of practice through completion of continuing education.

Seven of our physical therapists are credentialed as clinical instructors and, each year, provide hands-on training for physical therapy students from physical therapy schools nationwide.
