Physical Therapy and Wellness · Huntsville, Alabama

Hello, I’m Caroline Choppa, owner of TRUE NORTH PHYSICAL THERAPY and WELLNESS! I opened my clinic because I strongly believe that therapeutic touch and personalized sessions are necessary for many individuals to truly heal. My journey in becoming a Physical Therapist stems from a love of science, nature, medicine, and service to others. After living through my own health crisis, it was manual therapy from skilled providers that gave me my life back. The experience profoundly changed my outlook and how I approach patient care. I now work differently from many physical therapists. I do not work by a template, and recognize each client requires specific care. I have profound respect for the body and its inherent wisdom and desire to heal. My passion is in combining Craniosacral therapy and manual techniques with movement re-education and exercise. Over the past 15 years I have specialized in providing Craniosacral Therapy and Visceral Manipulation to promote healing. I have also studied the Postural Restoration Institute approach, and utilize this method extensively for movement reeducation. Working independently allows the time necessary to listen, question, and develop a working relationship with my clients. It is my hope to provide therapy that will facilitate your healing process allowing the return of Health.
