About PPTS Commerce Center
Welcome to the PPTS Commerce center! Our center focuses on complete quality care. We staff ourselves with clinicians that strive to continue their education to provide you with the most effective treatment methods available. Services at this center include a certified hand therapist. This helps us to design a treatment plan specific to your individual injury effectively reach your individual goals. To receive this individualized care, your journey needs to start with you coming in for an initial evaluation. Every patient, injury and goals are different. Let our Physical Therapist design a program that will guide you to achieve your goals.
Community is important to us! We enjoy giving back to our community by volunteering at community events and helping our local schools and athletic programs grow. Part of our goal as clinicians is to help improve health wellness and injury prevention for all ages. So, look for us at your Walled Lake High Schools.
