Locally owned since 1994, The Center for Physical Rehabilitation has provided innovative, compassionate and friendly care.

Staff Photo 2013 Dan Distin, founder and President, started The Center for Physical Rehabilitation with the philosophy of giving each patient the time and attention they needed to heal. Highly trained in manual therapy, Dan wanted to incorporate his skills as a manual Physical Therapist as well as incorporate exercise in each patient encounter. He has found patients with combined care recover quicker.

After the first year of operation, Dan brought on Chris Nawrocki, current Chief Operating Officer, and together they have established a growing physical therapy organization with a reputation of high quality patient care. Their focus has remained on utilizing the best research-based treatments delivered with a caring smile.
