Stefania Szabo Physical Therapy: To improve quality of life


"I chose physical therapy as my career because I always had an inclination toward helping others. Physical Therapy is a field which uses scientific methods to help people in amazing ways, like learning to walk, being able to balance, or abolishing pain. I have found the most rewarding aspect of my work to be the ability to help people recover from injury or illiness and help them return to their prior activities. I've seen people come in without the ability to balance or safely walk and using proven, reliable techniques I can improve their balance and get them walking again. It is a privilege knowing that I helped someone relieve their pain, get stronger, and become more functional."



Proven treatment techniques for improved care


"I enjoy treating all muscular conditions, with a special interest in geriatric strengthening and balance training. One of my strengths as a physical therapist assistant is my quest for knowledge. Post-graduate education is important in order to keep up to date in the latest techniques, especially since the field of Physical Therapy is constantly changing. Continuing education is a priority at Creative Therapy and I am able to attend 3-4 courses a year, as well as, learn from the experienced Physical Therapists that I work with daily."
