Physical Therapy Associates of Schenectady Original Office

Original office, 1982 at 1533 Union Street, Schenectady, NY

Physical Therapy Associates of Schenectady was established in 1982 by Thomas M. Cooney, DPT and Thomas Houghtalen, DPT MTC, to better meet the needs of patients and clients who could receive outpatient physical therapy services. The first office opened at 1533 Union Street in Schenectady, NY. Convenient office hours, flexible scheduling, and easy access coupled with specialized treatment, highly educated staff, and the latest technology were the founding principles of Physical Therapy Associates. Our philosophy of care has always been rooted in providing quality and efficiency of service to our clients and referral sources.
