In Our Clinic
One-on-One Treatment Sessions. Our in-clinic services begin with a one-hour comprehensive evaluation, with treatment programs tailored to each patient's own needs and activities. Each half-hour follow-up appointment is one-on-one with your therapist; we see only one patient at a time. In addition to exercise and manual therapy, your therapist will provide you with education in self-management, injury prevention and ergonomics so you can avoid future injuries.
Exercise Classes. CHPT offers classes for patients who do not feel ready to return to exercise, or who are worried about joining a gym. Under the guidance of skilled physical therapists who designed the classes, you will work at your own comfort level until you feel ready to move on.
"One-stop Shopping" for lymphedema needs. For patients who need compression garments or post-mastectomy products, certified lymphedema and mastectomy fitter Mary Jo Provenzano, RN is located within CHPT, making it simple and convenient to meet with her before or after your appointment. With more than 20 years of experience, Mary Jo works closely with our therapists to assure you are getting the most appropriate garment for you, in a caring and hassle-free setting.In the Community
