At South Jefferson Physical Therapy, our mission is simple; To provide such comprehensive, individualized care that patients would gladly come back and refer family, friends and physicians to our practice. It is with pride that we have served our community and neighbors for more than 10 years.
Patients come to South Jefferson Physical Therapy for many reasons.
