Physical Therapists

Your physical therapist develops a physical rehabilitation and exercise plan to help you improve flexibility, strength, coordination, and/or balance.

John Schell, PT


Philosophy of Care
I take the most satisfaction in contributing to and witnessingthe progress of my patients during their physical rehabilitation. I work one-on-one with my patients to overcome musculoskeletal setbacks. With neurologically impaired patients, I strive to maximize independence. Whether the final goal is to walk independently, return to work, or participate in sports - optimizing function takes dedication and hard work. Educating my patients on their condition and explaining the thought process behind treatment strategies plays a critical role in improving results during and after program completion.
