In June of 2012, Dr. Fernando Figueroa opened his private solo practice and the outpatient physical therapy clinic known today as Fernando Physical Therapy Services, Inc. With each patient, we ask specific questions about your symptoms, review medical records, listen to what you tell us, and then perform a thorough assessment. We will develop a specific treatment plan to help you heal.
From our experience, using an active treatment approach emphasizing specific exercises, education, postural advice and hands-on therapy leads to better outcomes for patients and lasting results.
Here at Fernando Physical Therapy Services, Inc., we offer you with a means of understanding your condition and provide self-treatment options, and a home exercise program so you will continue to benefit from our services long after you leave our care.
