Physical Therapy

"Boston Ability Center is absolutely amazing, both the clinicians and the facility. From the minute my daughter walks through the door, she is so happy! Jan, my daughter’s PT, always has such a fun plan for the session that my daughter doesn’t even realize how hard she is working! Her progress since starting at BAC has been amazing! Highly recommend!!"
