our history

Barbara Albanese taught her boys that helping others is a rewarding and noble way to live life. Chris and Steve Albanese took those lessons to heart and built careers in physical therapy.  When they saw how patients were treated at the clinics where they worked as young therapists, they knew they could find a better way.

They started with one small clinic in Montgomery NY, and have grown their practice over the years to more than 20 locations on the East Coast.

Knowing your practice is what you have made it, is a great feeling. Your heart and soul poured into an office for the purpose of bettering the lives of those you treat. It is no longer a job, but a lifestyle of choice
