At Athena Wellness & Manual Physical Therapy, you will experience a holistic 

approach to your symptoms. Each person receives their own specialized care and individualized treatment. Beyond pain relief, we look further to get to the cause of the problem. 

Our goal is to identify the underlying dysfunctions that create the presenting symptoms. The therapist and patient will work together to develop and implement a personalized treatment program.​

Because of the type of work we do, our office is not contracted with any insurance companies. And no referral is necessary.
