Carrie Rhose - Nantucket Therapy CenterCarrie Rhodes
Physical Therapist

Ms. Rhodes has been working as at PT for several decades. Although she has experience in acute, subacute, and long-term care, she has been working in out-patient orthopedics for sixteen years. Her practice philosophy includes the use of manual therapy in conjunction with exercise that does not end with the resolution of the injury, but helps her clients achieve their long-term fitness goals. This could include something that a client may not think is possible. Let’s talk!
