At COAST Physical Therapy you will find therapists and staff that have a passion for what they do and compassion for those they meet.
Physical therapy is the medical science of restoring function and movement.
The physical therapists at Cayuga Orthopaedic and Sports Physical Therapy (COAST Physical Therapy) are the professionals uniquely qualified to do this.
The physical therapists at COAST Physical Therapy are licensed medical professionals trained to help you get results by evaluating and treating your musculoskeletal and neurological conditions, and thus helping alleviate your pain.
COAST Physical Therapy specializes in orthopedic, sports, and manual therapy. It is our goal to provide services that satisfy and improve the lives of our patients.
We believe physical therapists should always incorporate a “hands-on” manual therapy approach to treating patients.
We believe that our role is to diagnose and treat our patients through a combination of manual therapy and exercise.
Our physical therapists have completed extensive manual therapy training and can identify dysfunctional joints that are not moving optimally, and soft tissue changes in the muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and neural system.
Our manual therapy approach, combined with individualized specific corrective exercises, help you achieve great results.
Our therapists are committed to maintaining and updating our education through attendance and participation in continuing education conferences.
