Charlestown Physical Therapy and Health Services LLC has been an owner operated outpatient Physical Therapy office since opening in 2009, with a focus on true one-on-one Physical Therapy Treatment. Each treatment session is individualized and without distractions for the patient to receive the best Physical Therapy programs and care possible. There are no aides or assistants at CPTHS. Each patient receives a personalized plan of care using the most up to date procedures and techinque. CPTHS was the first clinic in Rhode Island to offer Integrative Dry Needling. Every patient receives education about their diagnosis and a home plan at the first visit to supplement the care received in the office and maximize their recovery.
