Boone Hodges

Our founder, Boone Hodges, started Therapy Works nearly 20 years ago with the mission of helping patients down their path of healing so they can return to doing activities they enjoy. Although one may not necessarily want to go to physical therapy, Therapy Works provides an environment where patients can feel at home while working through their physical limitations surrounded by friendly faces.
