Welcome to Northern Rehab Physical Therapy Specialists

Northern Rehab Physical Therapy Specialists is an independent, privately owned Physical Therapy practice. We are committed to providing personalized, hands-on physical therapy services in a fun, friendly, relaxed atmosphere.

Referrals No Longer Required for Physical Therapy

State Law Update: A doctor referral is no longer required to see a physical therapist! This means you can feel better now without waiting for a referral from your physician. Prioritize treatment options that are less invasive, less addictive, and more personalized. Start adding regular physical therapy into your wellness routine before chronic pain limits your daily function.

You don’t need to live with pain. Now, the choice is yours. Choose Northern Rehab today, and stop letting pain control your life.
