patient care is our
number one priority
We feel each patient deserves adequate time for evaluation and
treatment. This is achieved through one-on-one personalized sessions
with an emphasis on patient education regarding proper posture, body
mechanics and lifting techniques. KSPT places an emphasis on
continuing education of staff, maintaining state-of-the-art
treatment techniques, and especially ensuring close communication
with physicians and other health professionals.
Kate Schwartz Physical Therapy emphasizes back/neck care through patient education and manual
techniques, and develops dynamic stabilization exercise progressions
tailored to each individual patient.
Most insurances are accepted with a
