Dave and Beth decided to jump off the cliff and open Acceleration Physical Therapy in March of 2007. With over 35 years of combined physical therapy experience and 7,000 new evaluations, Dave and Beth have seen almost every kind of orthopedic injury. We understand that the most important part of physical therapy is listening to our patient’s story to understand where they come from and where they would like to go. In this healthcare environment, where face time with your practitioner is getting harder to come by, it is nice to know that all of your questions will be addressed.
