KathyNCCenterforPTrespKathy is more than just our Office Manager, she is your overall Care Manager. She will often be the first person you talk to and see – so she’ll answer most of your questions. She’ll find out what your insurance covers (and let you know), ensure you get appointments that work for you and that you get treated at your scheduled appointment time (your time is important too).

While we have been told we provide some of the best physical therapy in the triangle, we realize you can get physical therapy in many places, so we have Kathy to ensure your ENTIRE experience is headache free. Physical Therapy at NC Center for PT is more than just treating muscles, ligaments and tendons; it’s about treating you as a person and getting you back up and running as quick as possible – without creating headaches. Kathy is better than Tylenol, she will keep the headache from every appearing.
