Our facility is located adjacent to the Right To Bare Arms Gym. We have a separate entrance leading to a comfortable reception area. We have multiple private treatment rooms and our own access to the gym’s exercise space. As a patient of Darby Physical Therapy, you will have access during your treatments to the entire exercise area of the gym. This facility was completed in 2004 and is state of the art.
