Carie Pace, PT, CLT

Philosophy of Care

I enjoy working with a variety of patients and with years of experience, I know that for the best outcomes to occur in physical therapy, the treatments must go beyond just the appointment visit. I enjoy getting to know my patients and developing treatment plans that work with their lifestyles. I recommend exercise and minor changes in behavior that can realistically fit with a patients’ everyday life to promote and empower physical well-being long after therapy is completed.
