Comprehensive Physical Therapy Center, Inc. proudly cares for the Triangle community – one person at a time - since 1989.
We are committed to treating individuals the way we would choose to be treated, with our comprehensive approach not only working on specific impairments, but also toward the larger goal of a healthy, balanced life for every person we treat.
We're a local company, owned and operated by physical therapists, and it would be our pleasure to work with you.
We are happy to announce the addition of Lymphedema services. Lymphedema is a swelling of a body part, most often a leg or an arm. It can also occur in the face, neck, abdomen or genitals. It is the result of abnormal accumulation of protein-rich edema fluid in the affected area. Learn more here.
