At DPT you are treated one on one by a licensed Physical Therapist, usually the same one each time, in a private room. We do a thorough evaluation and focus on your needs and goals throughout the course of treatment.
DPT has specialized in pelvic floor disorders for over 20 years. Every one of our therapists is a pelvic floor specialist. We treat patients of any gender for bowel disorders, sexual dysfunction, bladder pain, and many related pelvic issues. Treatments may include manual therapy (both internal and external), exercise and other modalities. You will always be treated in a private room, one-on-one with an experienced pelvic floor therapist.
Urinary leaking is never normal! PT is effective at treating the uncomfortable problem of urinary or fecal incontinence. If you do not want surgery or to wear diapers and pads or to take medication, then try PT. We teach you how to gain control and it is so much more than just doing Kegels. Do not suffer from this problem when we can teach you effective techniques to get rid of this problem. Whether you leak when you laugh or sneeze, or you just can't get to the bathroom on time, we can help.
We have a variety of items for sale, including Biofreeze, microwave hot packs, theraband, foam rollers, exercise balls, Squatty Potty, stretching straps, Slippery Stuff and more! Stop in to DPT and check out our supplies. We can even special order supplies for you. Our prices are better than Amazon's!
We treat all musculoskeletal issues including arthritis, sprains, strains, injuries, degeneration, post-surgical rehab, and pain in joints, muscles, bursa, tendons or the spine. Whether this is a chronic or acute problem, we will come up with a plan to meet your goals. Treatments can include exercise, stretching, manual therapy, therapeutic modalities, instruction in a program for you to do at home, and education.
Balance and Falls
Balance problems make it difficult for people to maintain stable and upright positions when standing, walking, and even sitting. Older people are at a higher risk of having balance problems; 75% of Americans older than 70 years are diagnosed as having "abnormal" balance. Balance problems increase by almost 30% of people aged 80 years or more. Physical therapists develop individualized physical activity plans to help improve the strength, stability, and mobility of people with balance problems.
For $25 per month, you can use the equipment at DPT as often as you choose anytime the office is open. We have a treadmill, recumbent bike, lifecycle, total gym, free weights, therabands, ankle weights, foam roller, Bosu, and balls of all weights and sizes. Pay per month with no extra fees and no commitment. Here we have a friendly atmosphere! You do not need to have been a patient to join.
Dry Needling involves inserting a very thin needle in a muscle to release trigger points. This can help resolve pain and muscle tension and will promote healing. It is not acupuncture. Our physical therapists have been trained by the Institute of Advanced Musculoskeletal Treatments (IAMT) in this technique.
Dry Needling is a valuable and effective treatment for musculoskeletal pain.
Classes are offered in our upstairs studio (2nd floor of DPT). Starting again in the fall of 2022!
