Our Mission

Our mission is to provide specialized care for every individual, irrespective of their racial, cultural and social background, in a friendly environment with a compassionate approach.

The Asara Approach

Asara Physical Therapy and Balance Clinic differentiate itself with its personable approach.

Patients and their families receive treatment in dedicated private rooms. We do not believe in an open gym and treating 2-3 patients simultaneously, or multiple therapists are seeing a patient. The client’s recovery is our primary focus, and we believe consistency is critical.

We are a private practice with two clinicians, and you will have the same clinician work with you through your complete care with us.

We are highly specialized in what we do and do not compromise on patients’ safety and outcomes.

We also believe in empowering patients through education, providing the tools to succeed at home. We also encourage caregivers and family to be engaged in the care of their loved ones by providing them support and education through workshops, home exercise programs, education handouts, etc.,
