Precision Physical Therapy opens
Alyson Kiernan has been a physical therapist for the past five years but just recently decided to start a practice of her own.
Precision Physical Therapy opened Aug. 2. Kiernan, who has a master's degree in physical therapy, has worked as a therapist in New Jersey, California and the Verde Valley.
"I chose to locate this business in the Verde Valley due to the steady growth in population," Kiernan said. "There is a large retirement community here and those in the baby boomer generation are reaching retirement age as well. We are located in Cottonwood, which is truly a beautiful area. A great place to live and work."
Kiernan specializes in orthopedics, sports medicine, wound care and rehabilitation for vertigo. She also works with post surgical patients. In the past she has worked with injured athletes.
Kiernan is currently the only therapist working at Precision Physical Therapy, although she anticipates there will be a need to hire additional therapists in the future. Office Manager Sherri Reed is also a part of Precision Physical Therapy.
Besides working at the office, Kiernan provides home care for patients. She tailors the exercises and therapy for each patient.
Business has been good so far. Kiernan hopes to see her practice grow over the years without sacrificing quality or patient care, she said.
"I hope to serve the entire Verde Valley," Kiernan said. "I look forward to working with the orthopedic surgeons and other healthcare practitioners in Flagstaff and the surrounding areas as well."
Precision Physical Therapy is located at 856 Cove Parkway, Suite A-B, in Cottonwood. It's open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. and can be reached at 634-1900.
