Physical Therapy in Smithtown and Selden
provided by LIHMC, PC
Our manual physical therapists are former Division 1 athletes that understand the toll stress and injury take on your body. They’re also the team physical therapists for the entire sports department at Queens College. We also provide personal training and strength and conditioning with our therapists, who each holds a Doctor of Physical Therapy. Our modern treatment options include state-of-the-art equipment, and you’ll be with your physical therapist for the entire session. We individualize each program to help you recover as quickly as possible.
Physical therapy helps restore function, improve mobility, relieve pain, and prevent or limit permanent physical disabilities. Physical therapy helps reestablish, maintain, and promote overall fitness and health.
