Chardon PT

Chardon Physical Therapy was established in 2020 to help hardworking people in Chardon efficiently manage frustrating pain so they can get back to the outdoor activities they love. Dave saw an opportunity to provide better outcomes for his clients when compared to traditional therapy.

We consider patients busy lifestyles by offering convenient treatment times and located in Everybodies gym located about ½ mile from Chardon Square. We are proud to serve in a community where it means something to be hardworking and where the community has a deep love for the outdoors whether that’s standing in line at King Kone or taking a hike through Big Creek Park.
