South Shore Health's Physical Therapy and Wellness program focuses on personalized patient care that gets results.

Our therapists listen to your goals and work with you to develop an individualized treatment plan that meets your needs.

Our goal is to get you back to doing the activities that matter to you as quickly and safely as possible.

We offer services in a variety of different disciplines and have locations across the South Shore, meaning you're never far from the care you need.

Why Physical Therapy and Wellness?

At South Shore Health, we strive to provide more than just physical rehabilitation — we want to help our patients and community live well.

Different patients will have different ideas of what "wellness" means, whether it's regaining strength after knee surgery or getting a little more active with a weekly exercise class.

Whatever living well looks like to you, we're here to help.
