New Patient Phone Consultations
Critical to your physical therapy care is first finding the right PT with experience treating your injury. I encourage all new patients to schedule an initial 15-minute phone call so that we can decide whether I'm the right practitioner for your situation and, if I am, how I approach recovery plans as well as movements you can do prior to your first visit.

Physical Therapy or Personal Training?
How do you know if you should schedule an appointment for physical therapy vs personal training? This is a great question because many of the exercises may look similar. The answer may depend on several factors such as:
Are you currently in pain or dealing with an injury that is undiagnosed?
Did you fully recover from your prior physical therapy treatments (dry needling, manual therapy, blood flow restriction therapy)?
Did you recently undergo an orthopedic surgery or other procedure that is still impacting your mobility?
If any of the above situations apply you may, you want to consider receiving physical therapy services.
Many patients will switch back and forth between physical therapy and returning to the gym from an injury or surgery.
Working with a physical therapist for personal training and strength and conditioning has many benefits:
PTs have advanced training in biomechanics and anatomy
PTs are experts in exercise prescription based on physiology
PTs are comfortable working with patients of all ages and levels of physical activity
PTs know how to work with people in pain
PTs know when you need physical therapy!
