Who We Are

About Our Office

At Philip Physical Therapy, it is our intention and purpose to provide the highest caliber physical therapy possible.


We make sure all non-operative, post-operative and pre-operative patients receive unique, personalized care; no two patients alike.

We provide personalized care. Each patient is unique, and each condition requires a unique approach. We provide you with a level of care that is second-to-none. Patients travel from both near and far, sometimes cross country, to alleviate their pains and improve their quality of life. You will be treated by a physical therapist; you will not be “let aside to do your exercises”.

We treat the physicians that treat you.

We know physical therapy is MUCH more than simply “exercising”.
