“The expansion of the West Point Clinic is an exciting step for us to continue our growth and commitment to West Point,” said Leslie Davis, PT, DPT, and Clinical Director of the West Point location. “Not only will the expansion add more space, but it will allow us to treat more patients with added privacy.”

The new facility will boast 3,600-square-feet of clinic space, as compared to the current 2,400-square-feet. The expansion includes an open treatment area with more space for individual patient workouts, open space for improved treatment for patients with balance deficits, a floor to ceiling mirror to allow visual feedback during exercises, an added section of gym flooring allowing improved rehabilitation for athletes, greater access to convenient appointment times and same or next day appointments.

“Many of our patients have balance issues and fall risks so the open layout of the new facility will allow us to add variety into our treatment programs including a LSVT Big Program, a program specifically designed to help patients with Parkinson’s Disease,” said Davis.

The clinic expansion also includes bringing on two additional therapists – Jonathan Lloyd, PT, DPT and Aaron Brizuela, PTA.
