Judy RossiJudy Rossi, PT In June 2006, I was proud to open Canton Institute for Physical Therapy, finally realizing my dream of clinic ownership. Previously, I had been the director of a successful clinic in Woodstock, Georgia. As a clinic owner, I have had the opportunity to treat my patients with the number one goal of offering quality, individualized care in a friendly, personalized environment. My hope is to be a facilitator in helping my patients achieve their maximum attainable function through the use of a personalized exercise program, hands on manual therapy and the use of various modalities to speed the healing process.

I graduated from California State University at Long Beach in 1978 with a Bachelor's Degree in physical therapy. Through my 30 years of practice, I have furthered my education with innumerable continuing education classes primarily focused in the field of orthopaedics. Through the years, I have practiced in many settings including rehab centers treating stroke and brain injured patients. My first passion however, is the treatment of musculoskeletal dysfunctions.

In my spare time I enjoy listening to music, reading, going to the gym, rediscovering running on the Alter G and spending time with my husband Matt. The weekends are spent with as many of our six adult sons and one grandson that we can get our hands on!
