Kleinpeter Physical Therapy is owned and operated by a physical therapist. This means  your physical therapy treatment plan follows a high standard of care delivered by a staff devoted exclusively to creating the ultimate patient experience.

Unlike other physical therapy clinics and facilities owned by larger institutions, Kleinpeter’s independent setting allows therapists to provide more comprehensive treatment plans and devote more time to each patient. To learn more about the expertise and skills of our team, please scroll down the page.

When it comes to something as important as rehabilitation after an injury, illness or surgery, the physical therapist you choose makes a difference.

Kleinpeter Physical Therapy therapists are dedicated to providing friendly, personalized attention to each and every patient. Continuity of care is proven to produce better results. Continuity of care is achieved more easily in an independent setting, like Kleinpeter Physical Therapy.

Staying in close communication with your physician throughout the duration of your treatment, Kleinpeter therapists are trusted by area physicians.

To learn more about how Kleinpeter Physical Therapy may help your unique condition, we invite you to schedule a free screening or an introductory phone call.  Let us teach you about your condition, medical options, and if PT is right for you.

“The healthcare system can be overwhelming and patients can feel like a number that is lost in the shuffle. One of the best aspects of our practice is the personal attention we provide to our patients. We listen to them. We take time to get to know them. We make sure we understand their concerns and we work with them to achieve their goals so they can get back to loving their life. These interactions help us to provide an even higher level of care and I feel that it gives patients a real sense of compassion that we feel for them.”
