Our Story

Grand River Physical Therapy Specialists, P.C. is a private practice outpatient physical therapy clinic founded in 2001, by partners Gail Braun, P.T. and Karen Carlson, P.T..  The clinic's 7 physical therapists provide a broad spectrum of physical therapy services designed to restore movement and function, improve strength, reduce pain and maximize independence of their clients.  Our physical therapy practice is dedicated to offering the highest standard of rehabilitative services for the community.  Following a physician referral, each client is evaluated by a licensed physical therapist.  Working together with the client's physician, a plan of care is established.  Each client is treated individually and the treatment is tailored to meet his/her specific needs.  Clients are provided comprehensive education to reduce the incidence of recurring injury and illness.

Our expertise as physical therapy specialists give patients the confidence, comfort, and assurance that they are in the best of hands. We provide exceptional rehabilitative care by staying abreast of recent developments within the field through continued education.
