ABOUT

What makes RTS different?

RTS Physiotherapy was created to help the active population who require assistance for maintenance or minor recovery to major pathologies. We specialize in and have experience in working with athletes from youth to the professional level. Our passion is helping those who are committed to improving their body and staying active. In a typical orthopedic clinic the physical therapist will see multiple people at the same time leaving less time for you and treatments that aren’t specific for your needs. With RTS Physiotherapy you will receive one on one treatment with a Doctor of Physical Therapy who specializes in sports medicine. Contact us now so we can help you reach your goal!
