Dr. Efrat (Effie) Rebish
Physical Therapist / President and Owner

Pain is subjective and it is not measurable. Through my 25 years of practice I have come to recognize that you the client are indeed the experts of your own body and pain. In the window that I am given to observe your life, I join your path to provide you with tools to search for the best way to eliminate pain. For some it will be exercises, for some mobilization; most of the time it will be hands-on, but modalities (ultrasound, electrical stimulation heat, ice etc.) are used as well. Some will appreciate a gentle (myofascial) touch that for others if feel like.. The later will appreciate mobilization and even manipulation.

In my years of practice as a licensed physical therapist, I understood that educating and empowering you as a client leads to a more positive and beneficial experience. The care that is provided is complete and comprehensive that focuses injuries prevention.

I believe that every patient needs a partner to understand his/her unique circumstances and as a result the treatment that is provided is suited individually to achieve short and long term goals and it is one on one at all times.
