Healing Hands with a Humorous Heart

Our goal is to provide quality patient care in a comfortable friendly atmosphere. Our dedicated staff helps strengthen patients and leads them through recovery while “treating everyone like family.”

Our Mission

Our Mission

At Center for Physical Therapy we recognize the value of the individual and are guided by our commitment to excellence and leadership. Helping patients recover from injury and returning them to their daily lives is our first priority. We develop customized treatment programs to meet the specialized needs of each individual. We provide state of the art care in a friendly, family and often fun environment. Our dedicated team of physical therapists—specializing in orthopedic, pediatric, and aquatic therapies—are committed to ongoing continuing education to ensure professional growth. It is this winning combination of clinical expertise, commitment to patient care and a strong community reputation that sets Center for Physical Therapy apart and makes us the number one choice for both doctors and patients in the Hudson Valley.

Official Team Therapists

Pediatric Therapy

Our clinic houses a fully equipped gymnasium, a Pediatric room designed especially with our young population in mind and a heated pool to meet the needs of our patients who require Aquatic Therapy.

Pediatric Therapy

Our staff specializes in the treatment of infants and children of all ages with orthopedic development and neurological diagnosis, including, but not limited to the following:

  • Developmental delay
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Spina Bifida
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Tortocollis
  • Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Downs Syndrome

Aquatic Therapy

Aquatic Therapy is an excellent adjunct to physical therapy. It provides a safe and efficient method for achieving movement.

Aquatic Therapy

The physical properties of water diminish the effects of gravity making the initial stages of rehabilitation much more effective. Using the combination of water principles and advanced techniques, our therapists can achieve a faster, yet safer rehabilitation.

The Center for Physical Therapy houses a pool unlike any other in Dutchess County. Our 16′ by 20′ therapy pool, custom built specifically for Aquatic Therapy, features multiple depths for ease of progression. The pool is equipped with a Badu system, a jet that provides 7-MPH of resistance to those who swim or run against it. 32 Jacuzzi jets provide our patients with massage, desensitization and relaxation.

Orthopedic Therapy

Our orthopedic population ranges from all ages to all diagnoses. Whether you are recovering from a motor vehicle accident, an injury, or from a post operative procedure, we are here to rehabilitate you as quick as possible.

Orthopedic Therapy

Common orthopedic problems include, but are not limited to:

  • Back and Neck Pain
  • Strains and Sprains
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Herniated discs
  • Headaches
  • Scoliosis
  • Whiplashes
  • Total Joint Replacements
  • Fractures
  • Cartilage tears
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Heel Spurs
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Lyme’s disease
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Tendonitis

Sports Therapy

We are affiliated with the local high schools, colleges (Marist, Vassar, the Culinary, Dutchess, Mt. Saint Mary’s) and clubs including track, bicycling, soccer and baseball.

Sports Therapy

Many of our staff are avid sports fans/athletes and have undergone many of the same injuries for which we currently treat.

The sports program is similar to the orthopedic section, yet there is a heavy emphasis on conditioning the whole body and returning the individual to his/her sport. It is not uncommon to find the therapist and athlete outside throwing a baseball, kicking a ball, shooting hoops or running with a sports cord. We have heard many people state “We are in better shape now than before we were injured”.

How To Get Back in the Game

What our Patients Say:

My therapist did a wonderful job. She was very professional and pleasant to deal with. She gave me some water exercises as a follow-up which I diligently while away on vacation. I am pain free and playing golf again!

Bob V.

Everything about the staff and facility is incredible. Thank you for making me feel right at home and for getting me back on my feet again!

Kristin G.

Thank you for your professional and positive physical therapy from which I greatly benefitted. It has allowed me to walk better than I have in 10 years and your magic “touch” and great knowledge are the reasons!

Evelyn S.

I want you to know how grateful I am for the very fine level of aquatic therapy I received at Center For Physical Therapy. I was always eager to make the trip to your office after my long work day as a teacher. Your aquatic therapy was a bonus.

Thank you for all your help during my rehab. Your positive attitude, willingness to help and thoughtful advice over the past nine months were truly appreciated. You made it enjoyable to come to physical therapy every time and that helped to keep me motivated.
