About Us

Paul and Alyssa opened Venture Physical Therapy Marietta as Marietta Center for Rehabilitation serving the Marietta Community and beyond since 1992. We were located around the corner until 1998. With the big boom of the medical community centered around Kennestone Hospital now Wellstar Hospital we moved to a larger space in our current building on Campbell Hill Street. As Physical Therapy has evolved and progressed so have we, but we pride ourselves on maintaining a personal touch. Please come visit us at our newly renovated office.
