Physical Therapist and Doctor Directory

Hi everyone!

Recently, I asked those of you who’ve found relief to share the names of any doctors or physical therapists who’ve helped you. And you did not disappoint!

Here all of the practitioner names I’ve gotten so far, organized by geographic location.

UNITED STATES

AL

Jon Paul Church, Select Physical Therapy, Birmingham, AL

AZ

Connor Ryan, PT. PRI specialist and strengthening specialist. Scottsdale, AZ.  Reader quote: “He really knows his stuff.  Out of pocket pay.  Not insurance driven.”

CA

Dr. Jeff Hanson and Embody Wellness Clinic, Folsom and South Lake Tahoe, prolotherapy, PRP, prolozone (check out reader Josh’s video for more!).

CT

Dr. Paul Tortland Osteo-Orthopedic for assessment, and/or alternative therapies. Glastonbury CT.  Reader quote: “He’s very comprehensive/thorough in his assessment. Independent, not corporate driven.”

Mike Cantrell, PT, Atlanta, GA, Postural Restoration Institute-certified

IL

NCH Wellness Center, Arlington Heights, IL— the physical therapists this reader worked with are Theresa R. E., Jennifer L., and Christine K.

LA

Julian Patrick Kelty, Trainer, ReGen Ex Physical Therapy, Baton Rouge, LA

MA

Natasha Heitman, Inspire Motion Physical Therapy, Acton, MA. This is where I personally (the author of this blog) have gone! Natasha is a great listener and can teach you the Muscle Energy Technique to realign your SI joints.

Teingo West, Physical Therapist, Cooley Dickinson Hospital, Northampton, MA. Reader quote: “He’s good with moving the muscles so you are aligned again.   Many times it happens on that same visit, but not always… I’m not sure if he uses the MET method.”

Dr. Jon Trister, prolotherapy, Worcester, MA. For more on reader Julie’s experience with prolotherapy, check out this post.

Dr. Li Yu, neurosurgeon, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Brookline, MA

Rachel Sanford, PT, Newton-Wellesley Hospital, Newton, MA. She does pelvic floor AND orthopedic therapy. She can use the Muscle Energy Technique and can also perform manual (hands-on) adjustments.

MI

Tapan Raut, PT, Synergy Rehab, Oak Park and Clinton Township, MI.  Reader quote: “He really understands the pelvis.”

Aquatic Therapy Solutions, Oak Park, MI. They offer aquatic therapy in a Hydroworx pool (which I highly recommend checking out!).

TX

Ascension Providence Rehabilitation Services (associated with hospital & other services) Woodway, (Waco) Texas. Here, this reader worked with:

  • “Celeste Quiroz, PT – “Excellent! Specializes in pelvic floor. Very hands-on to determine exact issues.”
  • Jessica Baima, PT
  • Crystal Klepper, PTA – “Very good! Works with Celeste and Jessica. “

Liz Kirk, DC, Airrosti Houstonian Medical Associates, Houston, TX. So far this is the only chiropractor I’m putting on the list because she uses a physical therapy-based approach, rather than performing adjustments. Reader quote: “Airrosti is considered PT and after she does soft tissue work then I see a PT. She also does soft tissue work, dry needling, and ultrasound.”
