The PCC ensures communication between our practice and the primary care doctor or provider who ordered physical therapy.

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 quickly as possible – and thanks to Kathy, without creating headaches.
