      Payment and Insurance Information

      Our self pay rates are as follows:

      • Initial evaluation: $195
      • Standard follow-up: $125

      What Our Clients Say

      Mary R.

      Awesome therapists and exercise classes run by a therapist. Their focus is on getting patients well; it is a positive and encouraging environment. They have the best therapists, well worth the drive if you don’t live in the Sacramento area. Personally, I wouldn’t go anywhere else for physical therapy.
