PHYSICAL THERAPY AT THE SHOOK REHABILITATION & WELLNESS CENTER
Who’s running your life? You, or pain? You, or your limited mobility?
The inability to perform the fundamental movements of daily life, from climbing stairs to carrying groceries, can hamper your lifestyle. Suddenly, you can’t do the things you love.
