About Us

We listen carefully to critically evaluate your condition We believe details matter!

Treatment Philosophy

In addition to the general standard of exercise prescription, we take that extra step toward a positive physical therapy experience! Our efforts are rooted in three critical aspects of care - listening, customizing and education. This comprehensive approach allows for a greater depth of information to improve critical analysis of your individual situation, and specifically meet your physical therapy or fitness needs.

Our Facility

We are a full-service physical therapy facility. We have been at our current location for over five years, and love it here in Hallowell! We additionally offer massage therapy, personal training and yoga at this same location for your convenience.

Why bigger isn't better

Functional Fitness & Physical Therapy is one of the few remaining privately owned clinics. Therefore, we are NOT bound by corporate productivity standards or burdensome bureaucracy. We are free to treat you (our patient) as a friend, and conduct ourselves in a way that best meets your specific needs.
