Physical Therapy at CHDC.
Stronger Bodies, Less Pain
Physical therapy is the art of healing through movement, manual and hands-on interventions, cutting edge medical devices, and therapeutic exercise. Our skilled Physical therapists (DPT’s) and Physical therapist assistants (PTA’s) treat a variety of medical conditions for a broad range of patients, from infants to seniors.
Physical therapy is a fun, safe, patient-centered approach to healthcare, utilizing the most up to date scientific and medical research to provide optimal results. We believe in educating each patient, student, and the surrounding community about the prevention of injury, pain, or other medical conditions.
Not only do physical therapists treat a variety of conditions, they also educate patients, students, and the community on various ways to prevent further injuries or medical complications. Physical therapy uses scientific research and medical research to provide the latest and greatest level of care to help each individual. A crucial part of our Physical Therapy practice is our ongoing commitment to teaching the future of healthcare with our recognized and highly established clinical rotations with our local and world-renown colleges and universities.
Our PT office welcomes you to experience two beautiful, state-of-the-art facilities located at our Coventry Mall location and in Barto!

We take pride in delivering the best possible care for our patients and love to hear patient success stories! We thank our patients for taking the time to share their experience, tell us about their recovery, and telling their story.
"Thanks to my ongoing physical therapy sessions with Dr. Leeat Aldersberg, I am seeing great improvements in my right foot’s range of motion, strength, and stability since my foot surgery in May 2020. At my first session with Dr. Aldersberg, I could barely take a step without wincing; now, just a few months later I am walking up to two miles a day! The entire CHDC physical therapy staff is supportive, attentive, and encouraging. I highly recommend these talented folks for any rehabilitative care you are looking for!"
"My name is [JC]. And I would like to tell you how much diathermy and cold laser have changed my life. I can now move my toes for the first time in 20 years!!!! And I'm actually able to move my ankle a little bit. I only have alota confidence that it's only gonna get better. The most wonderful physical therapists I ever been to!"
- Patient J.C.
"The staff and equipment at CH&D are top notch. The therapeutic exercises from the staff were easy to understand and take home. The advanced equipment such as Microwave Diathermy, and the laser infrared therapy, I feel were keys in advancing and speeding my recovery efforts in which I was able to get my jaw freed of wires sooner than was expected. In addition, all these techniques were also able to speed lower mandible mobility where I was able to eat more diverse foods. I am very pleased with the staff and advanced equipment at the CH&D facility."
