Definition: ground·swell: A groundswell is group of waves created by a distant storm. These waves travel long distances and carry a lot of energy,  producing exceptional surfing conditions, like winter on our North Shore. Our treatment approach at GSPT is the groundswell of physical therapy, with exceptional results that go the distance. We strive to always provide effective treatment that will not only change your pain quickly but also build the resiliency needed to keep it away.  If performance is your goal, we can help you perform better by improving movement efficiency through building clean movement patterns and layering strength on top.
