Our team of experts is dedicated to giving you the best, most up-to-date services available, be it a back, neck, shoulder, hip, knee, ankle or foot problem. And we will do it with the kind of personal, hands on attention you deserve.

We believe it is our people that make the real difference. Our personal attention and unique approach to your care will demonstrate that something different is waiting for you at Rose Physical Therapy in WNY.

Our practice uses advanced fellowship level training in orthopedic manual therapy to relieve pain, restore our patients functional abilities, physical performance and quality of life. Our most common hands-on techniques include spinal and limb joint mobilization (using a patient-specific range of force from the most gentle to thrust-based techniques), mobilization of the nervous system (nerve stretching to relieve tension i.e. sciatic or carpel tunnel), and mobilization of the soft tissues (to prevent or improve scar tissue elasticity). In concert, we provide mechanical based therapeutic, neuromuscular and self-management exercise and education to restore balance, core strength and prevent future pain episodes.
