Convenient in home appointments
Tight schedule? No problem. In home care eliminates the hassle of a clinic visit, saving you valuable time. Visits fit seamlessly between work and home commitments.
Home visits also give us the opportunity to address issues in your environment. Do you get back pain loading the washer? Emptying the dryer? Sitting at your home office set up? Let’s evaluate your problem tasks and make changes day one to get you feeling better right away.
New! In office appointments available in Amherst
To give you more options for care, I now have appointments available within Synergy Acupuncture and Wellness at 1 Overlook Drive, Suite 14 in Amherst.
A higher level of service
Immediate care because I don’t need a referral or insurance authorization (which can take up to two weeks) to work with you.
One on one care with the same Physical Therapist every treatment.
Appropriate care based on your condition and needs, not what insurance companies dictates. Often, just one hour long appointment per week vs. 2-3 times per week recommended by typical clinic care.
Along with exercise handouts, I also provide a written review of any recommendations or information we covered together so you are always clear on what to accomplish between sessions.
I’m always available to you through our patient portal if you have questions or are having trouble between visits. I appreciate updates to ensure you are making the progress you expect between appointments.
What can you expect from Physical Therapy with PT Health Academy?
Your first session will start with a thorough evaluation with an explanation of findings. Then I’ll teach you any self management or activity modification strategies that will help you make immediate improvement in your symptoms.
Physical Therapy treatment consists of (1) education (ie. proper lifting technique, how to protect your injury, etc.), (2) exercise prescription, and (3) hands on techniques including massage, joint mobilization, and stretching. My approach is uniquely mechanical thanks to my year long fellowship training at the Institute for Manual Therapy in Woburn, Mass. This training gives me the skills to assess and treat abnormal limitations or excess movement/instability in joints that might be contributing to pain or injury.
