Changing Lives Since 2007

Welcome to Carpenter Physical Therapy,  located in the Adirondacks and serving all of Warrensburg, the Adk North Country, Glens Falls and Saratoga Region .

Carpenter PT was founded by Dr. Amanda Carpenter PT in 2007. After spending seven years working in almost a dozen different clinical environments as a contract PT, Amanda had a vision to create a practice where she could not only serve her home community, but she could also give her patients the quality of care she feels they deserve.  

We are committed and driven to provide our patients with the highest quality of care.  Our mission is to not only reduce pain & assist our patients during their episode, but to educate on the many factors that could be contributing to their biomechanical issues and empower patients to take control of their bodies & health. We believe our holistic approach to each episode is what ensures each episode of care is successful.
