Physical Therapy Punta Gorda
About Our Location
Fitness Quest Physical Therapy in Punta Gorda, Florida opened it’s doors in May of 2004. Three months later we found ourselves in the middle of ground zero after Hurricane Charley wreaked havoc on the town of Punta Gorda and the surrounding areas. We were fortunate to withstand the destruction and were able to start treating patients again shortly after. Our office is located on the corner of Mary Street and Olympia Avenue just east of the Downtown Punta Gorda area.
