TIPS FOR AVOIDING COMMON ACTIVE INJURIES

drink the recommended 8 glasses of water a day, and always keep a water bottle with you when you are working out. • Staying within your abilities.

5 STAR REVIEW

“My daughters always looked forward to her treatments with “the foot lady”!” “When we came to Elite Physical Therapy, my daughter was so nervous about seeing a “doctor”. However...she soon came to love coming to her Physical Therapy appointments. Her Elite Physical Therapist was incredibly helpful at making me (mom) feel comfortable and understanding toe walking as well as welcoming to my daughters. My daughters always looked forward to her treatments with “the foot lady”. We are really going to miss Elite!”
