This February, Old Post Physical Therapy (OPPT) is celebrating one year in business at its newly renovated facility in Croton-on-Hudson. “When I was cycling in September of 2013 and rode by an abandoned floral shop, I knew I had found a diamond in the rough,” says owner Kelly J. Keesey. What particularly attracted her was the 4,000 square feet of steel-and-glass greenhouses attached to the brick storefront. She knew it was the ideal place to integrate small-scale local food production with her patient-focused model of physical therapy.
“Having practiced in the traditional PT setting for over 15 years, I know firsthand how limiting it can be for the patient and the practitioner,” she says. “At Old Post Physical Therapy, my private and individualized treatments are 30 to 90 minutes of manual therapy and guided exercise tailored to the specific needs of the client. The extra time I now get to spend with each patient allows me to improve patient satisfaction in fewer visits.”
Over the last three and a half years, Keesey has seen her plans come to fruition. She’s steadily grown her customer base, and the greenhouses have been transformed into an urban farm providing vegetables to a restaurant in NYC.
