Community Outreach

COAST Physical Therapy loves to be active in our local community.  We think it’s important for our team members to participate in and be present at local events such as charity races, seminars, health fairs, and other outreach programs.  We have sponsored local golf tournaments, youth sports teams and camps, and other local community events.  Our expert clinical staff have presented seminars to local running groups and at senior centers, sports centers, health clubs and local colleges.   If you have a local event that you would like COAST Physical Therapy to help with, or you would like one of our incredibly knowledgeable physical therapists to speak with your group, please contact Mike Giltner, our VP of Public Relations, at 315-253-3291.  We are happy to help our local community members.
