We help people who are having pain that is preventing them from feeling like themselves, and causing them to change the way they live their lives.
Most of the advice given to people in the traditional medical setting is designed to provide band-aids and short-term solutions instead of finding the root cause and addressing it so that pain does not easily return. While many people are ok taking painkillers, or relying on surgery, many are not content to give up the things they love doing. We help people who expect more out of their healthcare, and who want their quality of life to last for as long as they live.
The Founder of DPT, Dr. Tom Padilla had a significant personal experience being on the receiving end of poor healthcare, and a lack of diagnosis for a year of his life. During this time, he received advice such as “you have arthritis, and you’re going to have to live with it, just take these pills.”
Having this experience, and knowing all the work it took him to finally find answers is what led to the creation of DPT. We help people who have been told things like:
- “Your symptoms aren’t bad enough, you’ll have to wait until you’re a surgical candidate.”
- “Your pain is just what ‘happens when you get older, you should accept it.”
For many people their pain has made them feel like they must be crazy, or they feel disappointed that their best years are behind them.
It used to be that injury was thought of as something you should just “walk-off” or “rub some dirt on it,” but now there’s an opioid crisis, and more and more surgeries are being performed at an alarming rate. This suggests this might not have been the right path. If we continue down this line of thinking it’s likely that more of us will end up in nursing homes, relying on others to take care of us.
Some people spend years searching for a solution that can help them get back to being active, and feeling like themselves. The majority of the people we help have tried several other forms of treatment, most of them including physical therapy, massage, chiropractic, or injections. We pride ourselves on being the last place people need to try, and if we can’t help on our own, we’ve built a team of trusted providers we work with.
We’re committed to helping people who are looking for a provider who is dedicated to keeping your quality of life high, for as long as you live so that you can:
- Go on more adventures
- Play with your loved ones
- Enjoy time with friends
- Stay independent in older age
- Continue making memories you cherish
- And have freedom from having to think about pain
