About Us

Choosing a healthcare provider is one of the most important decisions you can make. You want someone who is caring, knowledgeable, and accessible. Someone willing to take the time to go over all of your options and treat you as a person, not just a patient. 

Since our founding in 2002, we at Recesso Physical Therapy have prided ourselves in our patient service. We are 100% Physical Therapist Owned and operated which is an important question to ask when looking elsewhere. We offer an extremely knowledgeable staff with over 60 years of combined experience. We provide high quality physical therapy in New Hampshire and offer our clients the latest in medical expertise and technology.
