a different kind of physical therapy

Naomi Richardson, PT

I have been a physical therapist for over 35 years in the Spartanburg area.  I look at the whole person when helping to heal the mind, body, and spirit.

I have worked almost exclusively with people in pain since the early '90s and as a result have refined and amplified my repertoire of treatment techniques.  As a manual Physical Therapist I have developed and specialized my treatment techniques so that I can personalize therapy for my clients based on the individual body's needs.

Most of my patients see improvements in their conditions within the first few visits.  Much of my work comes from referrals from my satisfied customers.

My years of experience and my specialized evaluation techniques help me determine the true causes of underlying structural problems of the body.
