“How To Get Relief From Neck Pain & Headaches, & Return To Sleeping Through The Night Without Painkillers.”

The Astonishing Alternative To Pills and Chiropractic That Has 85% of People Returning To A Life Without Neck Pain.

If you have neck pain and headaches, you likely just want to know one thing…

“How Do I Get A Good Night’s Sleep?!”

Neck pain and headaches are not usually very painful, they tend to be a nagging uncomfortable condition that sends stiffness into your neck, shoulders, and head. Sometimes it includes nerve pain, sometimes it doesn’t. What DOES usually include is neck and shoulder stiffness and a constant feeling of stress. 

Neck pain can also make you feel dizzy or lightheaded. Much of the time it can set off headaches that shoot into your temples, or just behind your eyes. It can even cause pain into your face.

If you’re dealing with neck pain, it can be frustrating searching for a long term solution. Most people with neck pain find themselves in a constant battle with short-term solutions that just kick the can down the road. 

When it’s really bad, it can start to impact significant parts of your life such as sleep, and being active. For many people, that means they are less able to cope with stress, and they can experience decreased engagement at work and with their family. At the end of the day, it can change who you are, and prevent you from being the best version of yourself. 

Does this sound like you?

If it does, then you may have already tried many of the traditional methods of solving neck pain such as:

  • The old school approach…Wait for it to go away, or pretend it’s not there and see if it gets better. After all, maybe you just “slept wrong”
  • Going to your MD, who told you to rest and take pain medication. They told you that if this didn’t work, they would refer you to an orthopedic surgeon for a consultation.
  • Getting a bunch of new pillows and trying them out. 
  • You’ve asked some friends who kind of laugh and say “That’s just what happens as we get older!” 
  • Getting a massage which helps keep the pain down, but never quite seems to make it go away entirely. 
  • Looking up some stretches on youtube, but not finding anything that provided lasting results. 

At this point it’s understandable to be frustrated, and you might be thinking that there’s a better way, and you just have not found it yet. 

If this is you, you’re not alone. Our Scottsdale neck pain physical therapy group hears this all the time. In fact, neck pain is one of the most common problems we see in our physical therapy clinic.

Everyone wants to know… 

“Why Do I Have Neck Pain & Headaches In The First Place…and How Do I Make It GO AWAY!?” 

There is a lot of misinformation out there, and many of our clients tell us they searched for solutions for MONTHS before finding what works. 

There are 3 things that are necessary, in order to get back to sleeping through the night and feeling energized throughout the day. 

Step #1

Accurate diagnosis of the ROOT CAUSE of your pain. Where your symptoms are, is often the result of a deeper problem. You will be amazed at learning how powerful treating the root cause can be. Not only will your pain go away, but you may find yourself feeling stronger than you have felt in years. When the root cause is found many people are not surprised to find out that an injury that they had years ago has contributed to their issue.

Here’s the best part: Even if that injury is years in the past, a good provider can still develop a plan to get it corrected. 

Step #2

A comprehensive STRATEGY to get you from point A to point B (Point B is your goal lifestyle). There are many pieces to an injury. Tight muscles, sprained ligaments, weakness, stiff joints…There is no one size fits all, and a strategy is needed to address each individual component of your condition, while fixing the root cause. 

Step #3

Take frequent measurements. After all, the proof is in the pudding. Measurements allow a provider to determine how you are responding to treatment. This is more than just a “Hey, are you feeling better, or worse? Scale of 1-10?” situation. Taking real measurements of your range of motion, strength, and movement patterns on a regular basis is necessary. When a provider has a STRATEGY, when the measurements are not meeting expectations it allows them to figure out why & change direction.

Do you want to know why it takes so long to find a solution for neck pain and a treatment for headaches in Scottsdale? 

The Truth About Healthcare

The truth is, that we live in a society that’s obsessed with quick-fixes. This has led to short-sighted medicinal solutions to shoulder pain, that simply fail to address the root cause of the issue. 

There are enough people out there who are ok with taking pills, or waiting until surgery, that doctors and insurance companies have shifted towards this model. As a result, it’s difficult for active people who want real solutions to find good help. 


When living a healthy life is important to you, it can be gut-wrenching to have a doctor look you in the eyes and tell you to stop doing things, or just take some pills. It can feel like a big part of your life has just fallen away. That’s why it’s important to find a Scottsdale neck pain physical therapist who is on-board with you helping you live the best life you can. 

“How Do I know If I’ve Received a Quick-Fix for Neck Pain?”

  • You have gone to the MD, who prescribed some medications, and asked you to come back if they didn’t work. 
  • You’ve been told a new pillow should fix all of your problems.
  • You have been getting massages to manage your aching muscles, but they seem to just tighten right back up.
  • You have been to chiropractic, and it feels nice afterwards, but your joint stiffness keeps returning. 
  • You have been to physical therapy, and the exercises they gave help a little, but you have to do them all day long to feel any better. 
  • You have been to any doctor, and they have only focused on the area of pain, and not what the other areas of your body are doing.
  • You have been given surgery as your only option. Unless you’ve had a major accident or event this typically is not the case. 

“How Do I know If I’ve Found The Root Cause?”

It’s important to know that the “diagnosis” or the injured area, is very rarely the actual ROOT CAUSE of your pain. Everything in your body works together in a cause-effect relationship. 

When it comes to the neck there are many things to consider. Muscles and joints connect the neck to the head, shoulder blade, collar bone, and mid-back. While it may be one spot that you feel pain, it’s likely that multiple areas are not moving how they should be. 

Most people will look at a tight neck and just tell you to stretch it. The problem is that this is often the exact opposite of what your neck needs. The stretching can cause it to gradually get more and more uncomfortable. 

When you find the root cause, the doctor will be able to explain to you exactly what’s wrong, and all of the components that are contributing to your injury. When it comes to your neck, this could mean tight muscles, weak muscles, poor movements, bad daily habits, or any number of other issues. It’s important to have a complete understanding of your neck pain before a strategy can be developed

STOP and re-read that last sentence. In case you zoned out I’ll repeat it… “It’s important to have a complete understanding of your neck pain before a strategy can be developed.” Notice that I use the word “STRATEGY.” Because that’s what you need to fix the root cause of neck pain. You can’t just look at the thing causing you pain and let the treatment stop there. Unless of course you want to be in the same boat 6 months from now. 

10 Reasons Why Your Neck Pain & Headaches Last Longer Than They Should. 

  • You rely mainly on word of mouth, and you’ve run out of places to go.
  • You’ve gotten so much advice, you’re paralyzed by your options so you’ve done nothing. 
  • You’ve been burned in the past and you don’t want to waste time by choosing the wrong option, so you’re doing a lot of research. 
  • You’re currently getting care, and the provider is insisting that you keep being patient and that it will eventually work. You’re staying with them a little longer because they’re “nice.” 
  • You tried looking up exercises to do on your own for your neck pain. This is a fair strategy, but there are many “causes” of neck pain, and it’s difficult to figure out which exercises are right for you. This is why some exercises can seem to make it better, but some make it much worse.
  • You tried a few relaxing massages and it felt good for a few days but then it came back. So you started getting more frequent massages, but the effects have gradually worn off. 
  • You tried chiropractic care and it eased a bit, but the nagging sensation is still there. 
  • You tried waiting for it to go away on its own. That didn’t work…
  • You went to the doctor’s office, and they gave you pain meds or nerve medication to numb the pain. They told you to come back in 6 weeks if it didn’t work. 
  • You went to a physical therapist who put you on the same exercises everyone else with neck pain gets…then they left you with an assistant who only half watched your technique.

“What Can I Do To Get Rid of My Neck Pain And Headaches Completely?

  • The best thing that you can do is decide to get help from an expert. With all the options out there, it’s difficult to find someone reliable who you can trust. Which is why we offer a non-committal Discovery Visit option. You can see more below. 
  • Whatever you do, keep moving. Don’t let things stiffen up and get worse. 
  • Stay hydrated. Especially in Phoenix during the hotter months of the year. We need about ½ our body weight in ounces each day. Add 10% if you’re active. This helps your muscles get circulation, which helps them heal. 
  • Try your best to avoid sleeping on your side, or leaning on your elbow when you’re seated in a chair or driving.

Please Take A Few Moments To Read What Our Clients Have To Say About DPT

One beautiful Sunday morning, while walking with my new pup “Monty”, we came across a family of quail crossing the sidewalk in front of us. That’s all it took! The next thing I knew Monty took off, and I landed face down on the sidewalk in front of me. When I gained my composure, I was able to locate Monty and ventured home. The next few days were unbearable. The pain in my right shoulder was off the charts, nights were the worst. I had a classic rotator cuff injury and after a few weeks in denial I was forced to schedule an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon. After requesting an MRI and a follow up consult my doctor recommended surgery to repair the tear. I was determined to avoid surgery. Terrified at going under the knife, I asked for my options. The next week I began seeing a physical therapist recommended by my surgeon, which I decided to pair with acupuncture to help repair nerve damage. After three months of physical therapy and acupuncture I was feeling better, but the shoulder wasn’t completely free of pain. My shoulder / arm flexibility were still limited. I wasn’t really sure what I was looking for until I found DPT while researching Physical Therapists specializing in shoulder injuries. Dr. Jessie’s personal testimonial was everything I was looking for. I found the specialization I was looking for. DPT is an office that takes a very individualized approach to physical therapy. Each therapy plan is specifically designed for the patient’s injuries, strengths, weaknesses and long-term goals. Dr. Jessie shared anatomical diagrams of my injury based on my MRI and we discussed an in-depth course of action. During each visit measurements were taken to document flexibility and injury improvement. She spent time extensively working my muscles at each visit. As I progressed, my pain decreased, and flexibility improved. My exercise regimen changed weekly to meet my recovery needs. The DPT office is exceptional. Patients are treated like family and the environment is easy and welcoming. They offer videos, tutorials and are free to answer questions any time. So, don’t wait any longer, with each day that passes you’re missing the opportunity to meet and work with a wonderful extremely professional and caring PT group.

I would like to offer my highest recommendation for The Doctors of Physical Therapy! They were recommended to me by a fitness trainer and life coach after I developed hamstring pain and knee pain in a recently replaced knee. My pain was causing me to miss out on many of the activities I enjoy, especially hiking in the AZ Desert and I was feeling old and beat up. I was a little skeptical when they explained this was coming from a chronic back situation, but I decided to follow their advice and do the work they laid out!Voila, about 2 months later I feel like a new woman. I'm back to most of my activities and have the utmost confidence that if I listen to my body and the Docs at DPT, they can keep me patched up and functioning well as I age . Surgery and pain meds are not in their vocabulary and I really appreciate that. I'm constantly amazed at their knowledge of the human body and positive reinforcing direction. I have the utmost respect for all the Docs at DPT and Lesa who makes it run seamlessly.Tara Leicht

This is the first time in my life I feel more equipped to help myself in the future. I came in with pain and dysfunction in my body and was given achievable exercises and a better understanding of my body and how to help it in the future. My pain is gone, the dysfunction is better, and I am excited to see them regarding a few areas of my body that I assumed pain/discomfort would just be my life. Dr. Jessie has been incredible from the beginning, but I've also gotten to work with each of the doctors and love how they all know my story and how to help. Above and beyond my physical experience, their service is INCREDIBLE. Lesa, the front office staff, is so wonderfully friendly that it feels like a family reunion when I enter the offices. I'll be sad when I've finished my treatments and don't see them regularly.

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.

I initially went to DPT after not making progress with a hip issue at a physical therapy location recommended by my primary care physician. I had already scheduled a consultation with a hip surgeon for a hip replacement.My wife was going to DPT and suggested I try it before seeing the surgeon. At the time, I could not walk for more that a 1/4 mile before my hip and one knee began hurting.When I went to DPT, the cause of my hip pain was explained to me and I was given exercises to do to help alleviate the pain. The exercises worked quickly, and with each subsequent visit the exercise routine was adjusted to help me improve.When the hip issue was under control, we started working on other joint issues, and I have continued to improve. I can now walk 3 1/2 miles with no problems and I am building up to go further.So, the moral of the story is don't be too anxious to get a surgical consultation because it's very likely that all you need is some good PT.

I have had lower back pain for several years and wanted to get back to spinning classes and out of pain. I had been to several practitioners including another physical therapy practice, chiropractor, and orthopedic doctor with some success but the pain would always come back. My Naturopathic Doctor recommended that I visit the Doctors of Physical Therapy as they have a much more individualized focus than other physical therapy practices. I've worked with two doctors there and am thoroughly impressed with their depth of practical knowledge. They are willing to communicate with other providers to determine what is helping vs. not. The exercises prescribed for between physical therapy sessions are always easily done. I am now back to spinning and much more exercise!

I was referred to DPT by my mother who's pain vanished after working with DPT! After working with Dr. Jessie I too am pain free! Dr. Jessie has helped my body work correctly after years of bad habits. Dr. Jessie is extremely knowledgeable and found the source of my mystery hip pain when no one else could. I am very thankful I found DPT!

I am very pleased with the level of service that I received at DPT! Dr Jesse is so knowledgeable on the muscles of the body, she was able to create the correct exercise pattern to restore the movement in my shoulder. In a matter of a few short months, I have about 90% of movement back in my shoulder, I will be at 100% soon, with the guidance of Dr. Jesse and the team at DPT. I would recommend Dr Jesse and the team at DPT for any issue you have with movement!

A couple of years ago, at age 58, an undiagnosed childhood injury suddenly showed up as unbearably painful, debilitating sciatica… all day, every day. Steroid shots and chiropractic proved useless, and L4-L5 spine fusion surgery was imminent. My scheduled surgery was six months away, which meant six more months of disabling pain, or so I thought. I heard about Dr Tom’s great success with situations like mine and became his patient. He taught me how to do specialized exercises at home, significantly reducing my pain during those long months. After surgery, what came as a complete surprise (to both my Neurosurgeon and me), was my swift recovery. I returned to my normal golf, biking, running routine in just three short months with my surgeon’s blessing. No restrictions and no pain whatsoever! All that targeted pre-surgery PT left my body perfectly primed for a successful surgery and miraculous recovery. Whether surgery is in your future or not, it’s worth investigating Dr Tom’s “pre-hab” methods. They work bigtime!

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.

Wonderful staff and SO much expertise. I worked with Dr. Tom and his ability to analyze movement patterns and isolate potential causes is extraordinary. Targeted prescribed therapy, both in the office and on my own, coupled with regular assessments really showed me the progress being made. I am coming from a weightlifting and general fitness background and pain that I had for years was diagnosed and treated with significant and measurable improvement. My goals were followed and I was a true partner in my own care, which is always important. Walking in, no matter your mood Lesa is definitely one of the friendliest people you could ever meet and she is such a pleasure to talk with. You will definitely be in great hands with these folks and can trust them to work with you to solve your problems and crush those goals! Highly recommended!

I can’t say enough amazing things about the staff at the Doctors ofPhysical Therapy. I have a struggled with ongoing lower pain for years due to my past with being a ballet dancer, and more recently having 2 children which made my pain worsen. Dr. Jessie is extremely knowledgeable and compassionate. She takes her time with me every single visit and truly cares about my progress. She has helped me TREMENDOUSLY and my pain is going down less and less with each session. I am beyond grateful to have found this incredible team! I highly recommend this place! They truly care here which is so hard to find.

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!

This is by FAR the best place to go if you are searching for experts in physical therapy! For anyone who had bad experiences in the past it will NOT happen here! Your fears will disappear with your first appointment! Dr. Jessie is amazing and has helped me so much with lower back and sciatica pain. She is extremely knowledgeable, caring and she is with you the entire session, from checking the areas of concern to ensuring you are doing the exercises correctly which is so important. Everyone at DPT including Dr. Tom and Lesa are so genuinely friendly and welcoming and I highly recommend!

I have been very impressed with Dr. Tom and Dr. Jessie and their unique approach to physical therapy. I was referred to them by my chiropractor after I had been seeing another physical therapist for months. I came in for neck issues, but they evaluated my entire body to see what might be causing or contributing to this problem. This was very different from my previous experience with physical therapy, where they were only allowed to consider the part of the body that I was referred for. We were able to identify several issues throughout my body and have been working on each of these during my time here. I also appreciate their willingness to problem solve and try different approaches to get to the root of my neck issues. I am still a work in progress, but I am confident that we will continue to improve the way that my body functions and my quality of life. I am so thankful that I found their practice and would highly recommend it to anyone who might be hesitant to try physical therapy.

I was lucky to find DPT after many years of trying to manage hip pain that kept me from many activities. I had tried many doctors and other therapists but they only offered temporary solutions to keep me active. No one was able to diagnose and solve the real problem. A friend recommended DPT after listening to my frustrations. Dr. Tom was able to determine what was causing my pain and most importantly, what I needed to do strengthen my muscles so that I could be pain free. he recommended exercises and stretches based on my progress after every appointment. We have been working together for several months (first in person and then over Zoom since I'm out of town for the summer) to increase my strength and flexibility. I have noticed dramatic changes in the way I move. I'm able to do things now that I haven't been able to do for years. DPT is not like any other physical therapy practice. Each patient has the compete attention of the doctor for a full hour at every appointment. The doctors pay close attention to where I am and change the program to address my needs continuously so that I continue to make progress. I'm really pleased with the results we have gotten so far and look forward to continuing our work together. DPT has changed my life. I highly recommend letting them help you as well.

For nearly a decade I dealt with back pain that would sometimes put me in the ER and other times ruin my day for weeks on end. I saw several doctors over the years with no real success. My bosses, avid fans of Dr. Tom, recommended him and it was a game changer. Not only did he and his team identify what was causing the pain, they actually gave me useful skills, exercises and support to manage the issues on my own. I have not had back pain since!Even after I was better and started trying new things, Dr. Tom was there to offer help - whether that meant discouraging bouldering on a sprained ankle or fixing my hip alignment for warrior 3.

The Doctors at The Doctors of Physical Therapy are absolutely amazing. I am not one to have pain normally but I woke up one morning and could hardly stand up. I was in so much pain. No idea what happened. I called The Doctors of Physical Therapy to see when they could see me. They got me in quickly and made it so that I could stand straight up without pain just a little tightness. They sent me home with exercises I could do to help it get better and better. I went back several times after that to make sure I was making progress and we worked on other little things I didn't know they could help with. Like the vertigo I had every time I laid down. I was so very happy with my results with them. I tell everyone they should go see them. They are the best. I have not had back pain like that again and if I feel it getting tight, I just do some of those exercises again and the tightness goes away. Love the entire staff at The Doctors of Physical Therapy.

I can't tell you how glad I am that I started working with Doctors Tom and Jessie at DPT. I actually live in Boston, and have only had a few sessions with them in person (when I was visiting my mom in Scottsdale). I was honestly skeptical about trying virtual PT but have been so pleased with my sessions and progress.I have been in and out of PT for the past 10+ years, and have been stuck in a pattern of two steps forward then one (or three) steps backwards and have been frustrated that I was never able to make real forward progress. I met with Tom and Jessie in March at my mom's suggestion, who has been a patient of theirs for a while and I have never worked with a team who has taken such a holistic view of my body and its issues. They took an incredibly comprehensive approach to evaluating my body and explained what was happening very clearly. After 2 sessions I went back to Boston and have been meeting with Jessie virtually since then. I continue to be so impressed with her ability to assess my progress and evaluate my body's alignment, strength and mobility virtually. She develops very thoughtful programs for me that work with my schedule, and I feel like I'm steadily making progress. When I started seeing them I had bad back pain and fairly constant knee pain. Since then, my back pain has almost gone away and my knee pain has decreased dramatically. I also hurt my shoulder a few months ago and Jessie responded immediately, was able to diagnose me over Zoom, developed an effective program and monitored my progress well. I wish they were in Boston but I would work with them virtually over anyone else locally any day!

I feel so thankful to have been recommended to DPT by a friend few months ago! Dr. Tom and Dr. Jessie have helped me so much! I have had trouble with my lower back for years, since college and now I'm in my 40s. I would have spells off and on over the years where my back would go out and I would be down for a week or two. I have always been active, and I enjoy exercising and playing sports especially with my family, so it was a continual frustration to be out of commission during those times. Not only that, but regular household tasks like mopping, vacuuming, putting sheets on the bed, etc., became things that would randomly set off my back and put me in bed for several days. Chiropractic would help temporarily but it never seemed to last. The last few years the spells came more frequently and lasted longer, until this past March when my back went out and I was down for 2 months, spending much of the time in bed. After trying massage, chiropractic treatments, X-rays that showed nothing specific, I was ready to get an MRI and see a surgeon. That's when my path crossed DPT's. I was skeptical of physical therapy because of what I'd heard from others' experiences, but I was ready to try anything. From my first visit to DPT, I felt hopeful for the first time in years that I could be active again and get over my chronic back trouble. They found that one of my hips was rotated out of position and probably had been for long enough that certain muscles in my back had stopped working completely and others were working incorrectly to compensate. I was assured I didn't need an MRI or surgery, but simply correction of that misalignment, re-teaching the muscles how to work and work correctly, and then strengthening them. It sounded so simple and made so much sense, and what a relief to learn that I didn't have a lifelong condition that I just had to live with or attempt to fix with surgery, as I had been told before! I have been so impressed by the one-on-one sessions with the doctors at DPT...no handing off of the patient to interns, aids or assistants...you're with the doctor the whole time! The staff is so friendly and caring, and have been wonderful, patient listeners to all my concerns and questions. After less than 3 months, I'm amazed at how much stronger I feel, and at how much I'm able to do now without pain. I'm so happy to be able to get back to exercising and playing basketball with my boys, without having to worry about being down for several days from over-doing it. It has been wonderful to learn that my back issues were not just something I had to live with as a result of getting older! I want to shout it from the rooftops that if you have back trouble, you don't just have to live with it, and don't assume you need surgery...you just need DPT!! 🙂

I’m an avid gym goer and crossfitter who had hurt one of my shoulders. It was a nagging injury but I was stubborn and wanted to “work through it”. DPT was recommended to me by a friend and she had given it a glowing recommendation. I will say I was a bit skeptical with the level of praise, but I was proven wrong very quickly: DPT is amazing. From the very first email, DPT (via Leesa) was professional and asked several questions to understand my background as well as the injury itself. My first appointment there was much the same: DPT showed a genuine care for me as a patient, asked several questions, and really wanted to understand the injury. It was definitely a 5-star experience. After my first session with Dr. Steph, I had zero hesitation about signing up for a bit more comprehensive therapy that would integrate my overall physical goals with my treatment plan. They didn’t just want me to get to “good enough” but wanted me to exceed where I had been before with my shoulder. Having been to PT before, I believe DPT’s desire to get me truly better than I was when I walked in the door set them apart. The doctors (Dr. Steph, Dr. Tom, and Dr. Jesse) at DPT created a progressive improvement plan to get me to where I wanted to be and I’m happy to say it worked! The staff there is not just giving you things to do to get better but they are by your side as you do it.I would highly recommend DPT to someone. If they were hesitant because they hadn’t heard about them, I would relay my initial skepticism and the final result of me returning to the gym at 110% of where I was prior to going in!

When I lost my ability to stand and walk due to severe sciatic pain, I tried everything to fix my leg: back surgery, physical therapy, pain management, spinal injections, spinal eletrostimulation, acupuncture, massage, dietary analysis…. Nothing helped at all. Then I found Dr Padilla, and he gave me back my life! When you go through this, you learn how many things you can no longer do if you can’t stand or walk. Now I’m back to walking 3-4 miles a day; I can lift and hold my grandbabies; I can go to parties without having to sit in a corner; I can go shopping again.What was different about Dr Padilla’s approach is that he carefully analyzed the root cause of my problem. All the other doctors I had seen were focused on alleviating the symptoms. Once Dr Padilla identified problem areas, he worked with me to test his hypotheses and then to fix the specific problems he identified through a combination of physical therapy and referrals to some very unique specialists, including one who could repair muscle tears without surgery and even one who could help me cope with the mental and emotional challenges that I am convinced contributed to the problem.I can’t speak highly enough of Dr Padilla and his practice. They are professional, caring, supportive in every way. I only wish I had seen him before all my other attempts. His method is virtually risk free, and I could have avoided a lot of doctor appointments and needless and expensive treatments, not to mention losing a couple of years to my other attempts.

My experience with Dr. Tom and The Doctors of Physical Therapy was exceptional.  Dr. Tom was recommended to me by my fitness trainer.   I saw Dr. Tom for lower back pain.  This was not my first experience with physical therapy treatment for back pain but I believe it was my best experience.  Dr. Tom quickly accessed my back issues and gave me a set of daily exercises and stretches.   After six weeks with regular office appointments,  I now can move more freely without pain.I would highly recommend The Doctors of Physical Therapy.

The Doctors of Physical Therapy is an excellent organization comprised of passionate professionals! I have been in and out of several other physical therapy practices where I was given the same diagnosis over and over and still failed to see improvement. I was in a constant state of discomfort and pain and was unable to participate in the activities that I loved to do. Overall my quality of living was sub par. When I was introduced to the Doctors of Physical Therapy, they almost instantly identified the source of my discomfort and constructed a treatment plan that was so incredibly specific to my needs, results were almost immediate. I have been able to freely live my life and participate in the physical activities I so choose. Such as; weight lifting, rock climbing, hiking, and every day activities at home and at work. I recommend them to anybody who is stuck where I was, or feels anyway limited. They will help you get your life back!

I am writing on behalf of my experience with DPT. When I first went there I was limping and barely able to walk without pain due to a labral tear in my hip and lots of hip pain.Upon entering DPT I was greeted by Lesa, the receptionist. She is fantastic and such a warm person. Then I met with Dr. Tom and Dr. Jessie. They are wonderful. They made me feel like I was an integral part of the team there.I was referred to DPT by a friend. It's the best thing that happened for me and my hip. Dr. Jessie has helped me immensely with my hip. I no longer am limping and I walk without pain. I would recommend DPT and all their staff to everybody because of their professionalism, great attitude, and such pleasant people to be associated with.After every session I attend at DPT I am able to walk without a limp and am pain free.

DPT has improved my quality of life and activity tolerance. The staff is passionate, kind, knowledgeable, and professional. Prior to starting therapy, I had become “dependent” on the use of trigger point balls, deep massage with elbows, and over stretching. All of this would only give me temporary relief. Since starting treatment, I don’t obsessively need daily relief tools because I can hardly feel my pain. I am also able to Increase exercise without as much fear of aggravated the pain. I highly recommend them! Worth every penny spent!

It's really refreshing how they provide a personalized approach for each patient that they work with, you can tell they genuinely care about helping out their clients. I've been to other PT groups before and almost all of the other groups felt unpersonalized and rushed. I couldn't recommend this group enough to anyone in the Valley.

I have received physical therapy from many different providers over the years and I can say DPT is BY FAR the best yet. Most recently I found DPT after receiving treatment from two other local physical therapy clinics that could not get to the root of my problem. I struggled for nearly 1.5 years with knee pain and hip tightness. I could not squat, lunge, run, or walk up stairs without significant pain. The staff were all very welcoming and EXTREMELY knowledgeable. At DPT you are seen 1 on 1 with your Therapist which I found very helpful. Changes or additions to my treatment plan took seconds instead of days or weeks. I also received follow-up phone calls between visits to ensure no treatment adjustments needed to be made. I would HIGHLY recommend The Doctors of Physical Therapy. Upon completion of my treatment I can once again barbell squat below parallel, run 10+ miles at a time, and hike... all without any pain or discomfort!I personally saw Dr. Stephanie Mundt, who was exceptionally knowledgeable and learned in the realm of Physical Therapy. My very first visit with her I received a care plan tailored to my specific injury. I felt VERY confident in her ability as a provider to hone in on the root cause of my ailments. After years of physical therapy experience including herniated discs, strained muscles, and strained tendons walking into DPT was a breathe of fresh air. Dr. Mundt, Dr. Tom, and all the providers at DPT know their stuff! This is the place to go hands down.

Over the last 2 years I have been working to get myself back in shape which included me doing yoga, Crossfit, and some personal training. The problem I was having during this time was that despite how much stretching and foam rolling I did, it was physically impossible for me to do certain yoga poses or lifts while weight training.I went to the team at DPT to see if they could help and they found that the reason I had trouble doing even basic squats was because my ankle mobility wasn't great. I also had issues with a weak hip and shoulder, I'm only 30 years old!I was extremely impressed with DPT's ability to figure out why I couldn't move the way I wanted, especially after seeing a number of people such as chiropractors and other PTs for the same problem. I am continuing to improve my mobility and strength and finally getting closer to the results I've been looking for the past 2 years!Thank you DPT for being such a great team to work with!

I left my first session with Dr. Stephanie feeling confident that my problem of pain and limited movement could be resolved. In fact, I have gone through a series of treatments that have proved to benefit me physically so very much. Not only did Dr. Stephanie get me back into tennis, she helped me improve my game very significantly. I highly recommend DPT. While I want to experience no further injuries or pain, that may be an unrealistic hope. I suspect I will maintain a long term relationship with DPT for check ups and further assistance with strengthening and flexibility. I am so impressed with Dr. Stephanie’s kindness, knowledge, expertise, and efficiency in improving my physicality. Thank you DPT and Dr. Stephanie, in particular. Steven Hirdes, Ed.D.

Following knee surgery I was not able to straighten my leg. I was released from my doctors care after six 1/2 hour sessions with staff physical therapy since my insurance would not cover more sessions. I sought help from a personal trainer. Over the past 7 years I improved but continued having severe pain in several areas. Dr Tom provided me with hope that I can walk and exercise normally again. He quickly diagnosed my problem and established measurable goals. Dr Tom released major trigger points so that I could make progress with exercises to do on my own. Best of all he taught me techniques to reduce pain in my home between visits. I’ve never experienced such improvement within one hour.

I have been going to Dr. Tom Padilla for physical therapy for the past 6 months. With his knowledge and expertise I am able to continue with the physical activities that I enjoy doing. I was referred to the Doctors of Physical Therapy by my CrossFit coach. Knee pain was limiting me in my workouts. My daily activities were also restricted, I had difficulty getting in and out of a car. I’m a woman on the go and I didn’t like being slowed down. Dr. Tom was able to evaluate my knee, analyze my movements and teach me exercises to strengthen my weakness. I was able to practice the exercises at home and my knee pain has been reduced. The facilities are top notch, scheduling is easy. It’s not any easy fix, you have to do your part and work hard to get better, but with Dr. Tom’s patience, motivation and great sense of humor, I am back at CrossFit and living life.

I have been dealing with horrible pain in both of my knees for over a year . Of which during that time I found out I had torn meniscus in both knees. I couldn't walk very well, walk up and down stairs or get up and down on the floor. I work 8 to 9 hrs a day five days a week on my feet. Months ago I was recommended by my son whom is a chiropractor to have Dr. Padilla do some PT for me. I was hesitant for a while since I live 4hrs away. After several months went by and another recommendation from my son and another specialist I was seeing, I finally decided to try it. With the first visit I was hooked. Not only did I feel results on the first day, I also was thoroughly examined and given great information on how your body reacts and can be treated with physical therapy done right. As well as exercises to go home with, which is a huge plus for me.I have been seeing amazing results each time I go. I am half way through my PT sessions and I can walk without limping and even walk up and down stairs much better. I am able to do squats and get down on the floor a lot easier than before.In the past two months I have seen both Dr. Tom Padilla and Dr. Stephanie Mundt. Both are the most amazing and knowledgeable doctors ever.I have a goal and that is to be able to keep walking so I can keep up with my kids and grandkids. I still have a lot of life in me and I'm not ready to quit now.I highly recommend The Doctors of Physical Therapy. They will help you get on the right track to getting your physical ability back.Thank you Dr. Stephanie and Dr. Padilla. Your both amazing.

I have been going to DPT for a couple months now. I am an avid runner with a history of 3 knee surgeries. I also run obstacle course races and tore my rotator cuff last year. I attended two workshops with Stephanie and loved her. She was very informative and helpful so I decided to see her in the clinic 1:1. Stephanie is able to evaluate injuries/concerns and then give specific exercise to aid in rehabilitation. I will say (depending on what your goal is) it does take some work at home, but Stephanie provides the proper education and tools to complete this. Since then, I have been able to run longer distances without pain, attend classes at orange theory and am working towards getting back to obstacle course racing. I feel they truly understand the demands that come with being a competitive athlete and are able to work towards activity specific goals. I cannot thank the team at DPT enough.

I was experiencing lower back pain that wouldn't go away and continually became worse. I've always been active and the pain began to limit my ability to work out. After several attempts at self diagnosis, nothing seemed to relieve the pain so I made an appt with DPT. During that first visit Dr. Tom was very thorough and walked me through exactly what was happening and explained the approach to correct the problem. I experienced some immediate relief after starting a series of exercises.Over the next several months, my body became stronger and I was able to get back to doing all of the things I had done previously. The entire team at DPT was extremely friendly and helpful. They were very responsive and answered all my questions. I feel fortunate that I found DPT and would strongly recommend them to anyone looking for a great physical therapist.

I came to DPT because my body was all kinds of messed up from my first pregnancy, which was making my second very uncomfortable. Pelvis pain, back pain, etc. With my first visit at DPT I saw immediate results where I could get out of bed so much easier (which used to be a group activity with my husband). After having my daughter we had a few more sessions and I can happily say I'm back to my old self! No pain, better mobility, and with my functioning body I'm losing all my baby weight. Couldn't have done it without my crew at DPT.

I am extremely impressed with my experience at DPT. The staff is professional, efficient and welcoming. Dr. Stephanie was able to greatly reduce my shoulder pain in one visit and has continued to do so each time I have seen her. It’s wonderful to have pain free, full range of motion back. I had slowly been having to reduce my actives to accommodate the pain I was having, but now am able to everything I want and used to enjoy! I would recommend DPT to anyone needing physical therapy or who is just ready to live their lives without achesand pains!

I attended the Low Back Pain workshop by Drs Steph and Tom. It was the most informative information on low back pain I have ever been exposed to, and I had orthopedic courses in my training!! They gave information that transforms the way that I interact with back pain in office, getting people off of their medications and having them simply do some simple testing to find out what is actually the cause of the pain. I recommend that all practitioners who see people who have back pain attend this workshop. Their workshops are very informative and give you the ammo you need to be a solution to low back pain, not perpetuating the issue by trying to ineffectively treat the issue. Thank you Tom and Steph! You guys WOWED me!

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!

I suffered a mtn biking accident resulting in near loss of function of my whole left arm and hand and significant pain. My neurologist told me it would take 18 months to see improvement, yet at 4 months since the accident, I am already 75% better with near full range of monitor of arm and significantly less pain. I am able to get back into the gym, do yoga with modifications and hike with my dogs. As a physician I have already referred several patients here and will continue to do so. Everyone who works here is kind and enthusiastic and knowledgeable about anatomy and how to get to the root of the problem. I will continue my therapy here and will be back for future issues.
