I started with The Doctors of Physical Therapy almost exactly a year ago and I can not say enough good things about my experience with them. I came in suffering from frozen shoulder. I had tried various other PT and medical injections to treat my shoulder for several months before with no prolonged progress. I realized that I needed something better. I love that I received one-on-one physical therapy the entire hour of my treatment. In the past I had been transitioned to working on my exercises on my own, and this was clearly not working for me. All of the staff at The Doctors of Physical Therapy are amazing and truly care about your progress and well being. The Doctors of Physical Therapy worked with my on my challenging schedule in order to get me the sessions I need within my availability. Prior to me starting with The Doctors of Physical Therapy I could barely lift my left arm to waist height due to frozen shoulder, I have now been able to resume all desired physical activity and am continuing to see progress. What I truly loved about the treatment I have been receiving at that the Physical Therapists is that they treat the whole body and listen to me and about everything going on as a result of the frozen shoulder as opposed to only focusing on that one symptom. I could not recommend The Doctors of Physical Therapy more to anyone that needs physical therapy, especially to those that have not seen results from other physical therapy treatments.

My friend referred me to DPT because I was complaining about shoulder and back pains. Though my lower back pain was chronic, the shoulder pains were relatively new and were limiting my ability to work out, swim and sleep. I had hesitated to visit them because I have experienced disappointment with some practitioners after their initial consultation. That is not the case with Dr. Tom and Dr. Jessie. Their knowledge and ‘bedside manners’ are an awesome combination of clarity of purpose and ease in practice. Within 6 appointments my shoulder pain disappeared, but had migrated to another area. As these new symptoms appeared Dr. Jessie pivoted and addressed them but never lost focus on whole body movement. I even joke with her that they must be practicing some sort of magic because implementing the exercises mysteriously made pains disappear. Of course, their work isn’t a mystery if you do the work, but joking and feeling at ease is an apt description of the environment they created. And the captain of this ease is Lesa. Yes, she is organized and always in front of billing and insurance issues before they ever become anything, but she greets everyone as family. I just love going to my appointments. Don’t ever go changing, it’s awesome just the way it is. Lol!

After years of bad stroke technique, I could barely lift my right shoulder to swim. Private coaching, physical therapy, chiropractic, acupuncture, and massage helped — especially the coaching — but did not resolve the problem. A March 2020 right thumb surgery didn’t help. I was ready to give up swimming. As I was leaving the pool one morning in June, I struck up a conversation with one of my pool mates who told me that she had been working with Dr. Jessie for a similar problem. I immediately scheduled a consult. After a thorough examination, Dr. Jessie told me essentially that my shoulder was the victim of issues with my abs/hips. We began work that day. I have had excellent physical therapy in the past, but the focus was always to try to resolve the immediate issue i.e. shoulder hurts, let’s make it not hurt. DPT on the other hand, diagnoses the cause of the problem and digs in to help you correct it. I am now doing strength training with Dr. Jessie and am doing things I never would have imagined possible. (You want me to do what???) I feel strong and connected. I can dance without my right hip collapsing (an added bonus). My stroke gets better every day. DPT’s entire staff, the doctors and Lesa, are upbeat and encouraging. The doctors’ skills unsurpassed. I am grateful to have found them.

Erin Rankin

Started working with DPT due to lower back pain where I could barely bend over to pick something up without extreme pain (with 5 kids, this was a big problem!). I worked remotely with Jessie, and was so very pleasantly surprised with how well things went via Zoom. Over the course of 10 hour-long sessions, there was 1 or 2 short instances where it would have been better to be there in person. Jessie also had lots of different exercises to try in case I didn’t have the exact equipment she had in the gym. I had tried physical therapy with other practices, and was told I had tight hamstrings. After years of stretching my hamstrings, I still had back pain. Jessie quickly identified several muscle groups to strengthen, recommended stretches, and taught me mobility exercises that have helped tremendously. I bend over without pain now! I would definitely recommend DPT – the staff is very responsive and kind, the doctors are extremely knowledgeable and great at explaining things, and most importantly, they get you the results you need.

I have had various back and neck issues. Partly from a whiplash and scoliosis contributes to my back issues. I now have osteoporosis. As a result of this I had 3 compression fractures. After 3 months in a brace and using home PT care it was time for outpatient. I could barely drive and could not bend over or turn my body. I was lucky enough to find Doctors of Physical Therapy. I have never (I’ve had several) found anyone to have the knowledge to help me in the way they have. It has taken a year but they have me back dancing, able to walk distances, travel, bend over (yes that took awhile to do after back break) take care of myself and my house. I am stronger than ever. I am grateful that I could find them because I don’t think I would be doing as well if I had not had this type of therapy.

Whitney Adickes

I have had lower back and sciatica issues for the past 10 years. I’ve tried everything from traditional physical therapy and chiropractic to cortisone epidural injections. None of which lasted very long term and I always end up back in pain. Since being recommend to DPT and starting therapy, my back pain is almost gone. Before my first session I couldn’t even bend down and touch my toes, get dressed in the morning without pain, sneeze or cough without pain every time. By the end of the first session, I could bend over with minimal pain! From that moment, I knew I had finally found the solution to my pain and my quality of life was about to turn around. After 2 months, my pain is almost completely gone and now I have the resources (stretches/exercises) for those days I do have some pain. I can’t thank the doctors of physical therapy enough for giving me hope for a pain-less future!

Kaylie Medansky

The Doctors of Physical Therapy are amazing! I was having hip pain that kept me from progressing with my fitness goals. I chose DPT because I knew that they would treat the cause of my pain, not just the symptoms. With just 5 sessions of seeing the Doctor’s of Physical Therapy, I not only had relief from some of my pain, but I now know why I was having so much pain, and they set me up with a treatment plan to get me back to running and squatting at the gym pain-free. The staff at DPT know their stuff and are able to communicate the details in a way that makes sense to someone with no medical knowledge – I would highly recommend them for any of your physical therapy needs!

Quote Mark

Tanya Dahl

I was in hip pain for three years; the throb, pinch, and tightness was all day and night. I stopped exercising as well as unable to sleep on that hip! Last month I was blessed with a referral to The Doctors of Physical Therapy. After only a few sessions (along with strength exercises at home)…I can’t believe that I’m pain free! I’m back to spinning, hiking and best of all, sleeping like a baby! I highly recommend DPT to lift your spirits again. The staff is knowledgeable, kind, and empathetic. They teach you how to live and stay pain free, for that I’m grateful!

Tashin Dieterich

I severely pinched a nerve, It was so bad it got to the point I was unable to properly flex/contract my Pec or Tricep. I have been a gym regular for years, and it has been a large part of my life. So being unable to really engage my right side was devastating. I went to a couple doctors in the hopes of getting this fixed, with no luck. Finally ended up at DPT and so happy I did. Not only were they able to diagnose the issue right away they also worked very closely with me and developed a plan to get me back to 100%. Didn’t take long for me to be able to use those musicals again! Armed with the knowledge gained from my sessions I am regaining my strength. No words for how grateful I am!
