Description

Physical Therapy Specialists, PC was founded in December 1977, in a small office in Clawson, Michigan with Dr. Paul Roubal as the sole therapist. Because of the office's strong emphasis on high quality care, and the good results reported by patients, the practice grew steadily to its present level.

At Physical Therapy Specialists, we are dedicated to the highest quality patient care available. The use of the most effective procedures and equipment by specialists, who fortify their background with advanced training and education, leads to excellent and appropriate patient care. We have more orthopedic board certified specialists in our location than any other single location in the Midwest. Our clinic utilizes newly developed procedures for testing and evaluation, as well as for treatment. Each piece of equipment used for your treatment will be explained as to its purpose and effects. In addition, we train both undergraduate and graduate physical therapists from campuses at Oakland University, Wayne State University and University of Michigan Flint.
