Our owner and lead therapist specializes in the evaluation and management of orthopedic conditions. You will receive personal attention and frequent re-assessment to speed your recovery.

 

Why Choose a Physical Therapist?

Physical therapists are highly-trained, highly-qualified mainstream medical professionals who utilize physiology and physical means to alleviate your pain and correct your function.  Physical therapy treatments are based on sound scientific research, years of clinical experience, and physical therapists easily cooperate with physicians such as orthopedic/neurologic surgeons, family practice physicians, pain management physicians, and neurologists.

A typical physical therapist received a Bachelor of Science degree in another field (Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Exercise Science) and enrolled in a professional program leading to the Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) degree.  In most circumstances, physical therapy school selection was so stringent that only 5-10% of applicants (all with GPAs higher than 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, as well as high scores on the Graduate Record Examination – GRE) were accepted.

Other musculoskeletal practitioners enroll in either no undergraduate coursework, or attend limited college before applying to a  professional program, and are educated in methods without scientific validation that may not be complementary, or even run contrary to the expert care prescribed by your physician.

Why Does Specialized Training Matter?

Our therapists have additional training and experience in their area of expertise, and have proven it through rigorous examination. This expertise is a proven advantage for patients, because highly trained therapists understand your problem, have seen hundreds of patients just like you, and have been found to be more effective and timely in addressing your problem.

The Orthopedic Clinical Specialist certification is also an advantage over therapists with other certifications. Board certification is a designation has been obtained by only about 5% of therapists. The Orthopedic Clinical Specialist is the only orthopedic board certification recognized by most states, the entire profession, and represents the latest in clinical research and experience. Other proprietary weekend certification courses may require those therapists to “tow the company line” with one particular treatment approach, regardless of the latest research. It’s often more effective for marketing than for true clinical expertise.

Not Sure How You Were Hurt?

Believe it or not, most of our patients have no idea what really led to their problem. Whether from slowly deteriorating balance and strength leading to a fall, or a nagging “crick” in the neck turning into something much worse – chronic wear and tear can make living life to the fullest difficult, to say the least.

Do These Problems Heal?

If you suffer from bulging/herniated discs, arthritis, or difficulties with balance, these problems never actually “heal” because to some extent they are due to normal wear and tear.

A Properly Functioning Body is the Key

More evidence is uncovered every day demonstrating that restoring proper function – joints that are flexible and move freely, surrounded by strong and well-coordinated muscles – can take you to a pain-free and “balanced” lifestyle, while still being active as ever.
