Bauman Physical Therapy

About Us

One-on-one with a licensed physical therapist every visit

 Put your trust in our licensed physical therapists.  While it is a common practice to use PT techs and PT assistants we do not use them at our clinic.  You deserve the best, most qualified care every visit.       

Manual techniques & specialties

Our therapists use a manual, hands on approach to treat.  We often hear that our therapists have "magic hands".  This compliment is a result of years of skilled manual training producing highly knowledgeable therapists.    We also have therapists that have extensive training in specific areas such as pelvic floor, headaches/migraines, tailbone, jaw pain, CranioSacral therapy, and Trigger Point Dry Needling.  

See the Difference, Feel the difference

From the moment you walk in the building to the time you say good bye to your therapist, you will find we are not your average physical therapy clinic.  We have  friendly front office staff to help answer all your questions.
