New Patients

RLIM2281We often hear from our new patients: “Wow! I never knew therapy could be like this. I am actually getting better. You actually watch me do my exercises, and you care if I am doing them correctly.”

That’s our one-on-one, highly personalized, whole-patient treatment at work! Whether you visit Brighton Physical Therapy for physical, occupational or speech therapy, we make sure to craft a plan specific to you.


 “The attitude of my therapist was very enthusiastic, friendly, positive. I looked forward to coming every time.” Client ’12
