The mission of AMPT has always been to provide individualized, quality care different from the traditional outpatient Physical Therapy model. AMPT is different than other Physical Therapy practices. We are passionate about movement! All staff therapists are graduates of the Massachusetts General Hospital Institute of Health Professions.
