White Bay Physical Therapy Unique approach to Sports Injuries

Our approach to Sports Injuries is unique because we cover all stages of the rehabilitation and return-to-play process. 

Lionel Pannunzio, owner: " For many years I saw injured athletes going to their primary doctors or  being refererd to an Orthopedic Dr for minor injuries, spending a lot of time and money in the process. Another big problem I saw was people getting release to play,  from their Therapists or Orthopedic doctors without any return-to-sports training just to get injured again or playing to a level way below than before the injury. White Bay was created with the idea to solve these problems"

White Bay provides you continue care, from the day you get injured till the day you return to play.
