Kyle has proven to be an excellent designer of the activities I need to keep making progress with issues in my neck, my right shoulder, my lower back and both legs. We are currently strengthening and making more flexible the muscles in my thighs, my core, and my neck area. I judge my progress by what activities I can do and how my flexibility and stamina progress. Since Kyle and I started on this extended period of personal fitness, I climb stairs without difficulty, I can carry small loads up and down stairs, I can drive my car 250 miles without agony, I can now play 9 holes of golf without pain and stiffness, I am currently extending my golf to 15 holes twice a week and 9 holes once a week (the extension does cause stiffness the next day), and both the strengthening and the flexibility exercises Kyle has me do for my lower back have proven very helpful. All of Kyle’s activities are designed to be done in a fluid motion, involving many muscle systems, requiring coordination between systems, and are carefully controlled in frequency and intensity. If the reader has not seen a personal trainer ever, or not in the last 7-10 years, the reader will be amazed at how different these new techniques are than the times when we used more static weight lifting routines. As a person, Kyle cares deeply about his clients’ welfare, is very easy to work with, and absolutely insists that he deliver therapies that will work and are individualized for the client. He is knowledgeable, respectful, tactful, careful, and challenging. He continuously monitors the activities, their conduct, and their effectiveness. I have found Kyle to be a trainer I can respect. I look forward to each session. I am amazed at our progress. And I am delighted to recommend him as an excellent personal trainer. Donald W. Schmits

Amy P. is TRULY a "whole health" healthcare provider. She is patient, she asks questions, she LISTENS to her clients and adjusts her approach based on the honest feedback you give her. She CARES and doesn't believe there is only one way to heal! She is dedicated and will work with you until you find a technique together that gets results! She is not afraid to think outside of the box, and the fact that she is trained in multiple health facets (physical therapy, fitness, nutrition, etc.) makes her methods TRULY holistic. You will find that at first, she is more devoted to your wellness than you are! (But don't worry; she will change that!) :)

Nancy is incredibly talented. Her massage techniques were tailored to my specific needs. She used her "intuition" to balance my entire body, and our session exceeded my expectations. I look forward to seeing Nancy again and continuing this journey of healing.

    "I suffered a very painful bursitis condition in my left shoulder for forty five years, resulting from a weight lifting injury when I was seventeen. I actually had to cross myself, using my right arm to operate the ATM because of the limited range of motion I had in my left shoulder. Dr. Einertson recommended a series of treatments involving ultra-sound and dia-thermy, targeting my left deltoid/bursa complex. Within a couple of months, my range of motion was greatly enhanced and movement was less painful. After about six months of regular therapy, I was completely well again, having full range of motion with my left arm, and absolutely pain free! Thanks Dr. Bob, you're the greatest!"

    Is your child an athlete and he or she needs help in reaching the next level in his or her sport? Is he or she running into things and is very clumsy or walking on his or her toes? Has the doctor told you that he or she has delays in motor development and he or she needs to see a physical therapist? I customize exercises and educate you on what you need to do to reach the next level. I have worked with kids for the last 14 years in coaching gymnastics, and I have been a physical therapist for 4 years. I can come to the field, court, gym or your home. I look at how you are preforming a particular skill, studying the movements very closely to determine why you are having trouble, and then, we get to work, using exercises to fix the problem. I love studying movement, and I have looked specifically at the correct mechanics of movement for running, ice skating, gymnastics, dance, baseball and softball to name a few. I create exercise schedules and a guide of progressions, even when you no longer are working with me. I also love working with kids with SPD, autism, ADHD, cerebral palsy, torticollis, hypermobility syndrome, low tone, high tone and developmental delays. "Helping each person, I see him or her reach his or her maximum potential and achieve excellence in movement reaching beyond expectations."

    About

    Movement 4 Life Physical Therapy is very different from what most people picture when they hear "physical therapy". Rather than just showing you a bunch exercises and hoping this will somehow translate into less pain and better function, our board-certified and fellowship-trained therapist uses advanced clinical reasoning to get to the root cause of your pain. Treatment emphasizes education, 1-on-1 hands-on care, posture and movement awareness, and re-training in the functional goals that you identify. Exercise is still important, but it is only one piece of a complex puzzle. If you've had physical therapy in the past and have not improved, o​r if you're just looking for a logical, hands-on treatment approach, a thorough explanation of your symptoms, and individualized care based on your unique needs, goals, values, contact Movement 4 Life Physical Therapy today to learn how to get back to doing the things that make life worth living!

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What are the different types of physical therapy?

    Physical therapists work with people who have been injured or people who are ill to improve their movement and help them manage their pain. The U.S. Department of Labor explains that physical therapists “are often an important part of rehabilitation, treatment, and prevention of patients with chronic conditions, illnesses, or injuries.” Physical therapists can also choose to specialize in one of nine areas. According to the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties, these areas of specialization are:

    • Cardiovascular and Pulmonary
    • Clinical Electrophysiology
    • Geriatrics
    • Neurology
    • Oncology
    • Orthopaedics
    • Pediatrics
    • Sports and
    • Women's Health

     

    The national average cost for a physical therapist is $60 to $80, although it will cost more if the patient is paying for services out of pocket rather than through insurance. If you have insurance and want to work with a physical therapist for a specialty area, such as oncology or geriatrics, you may need a referral from your general practitioner. Patients who are paying directly for services can often contact the physical therapist directly.

    What exactly does a physical therapist do?

    A physical therapist is a health care provider who assists patients with mobility improvement and pain management. Often patients are referred to a physical therapist by a primary care doctor or specialist for help recovering from a surgery or traumatic injury, such as a car crash. Physical therapists help patients manage pain that results from chronic disease and other illness. Physical therapy can help enhance mobility when patients are faced with neurological disorders, such as after a stroke, and provide relief from arthritis or other mobility and pain issues.   

    A physical therapist uses medical exercise equipment and exercises to empower patients to regain flexibility and mobility where possible. They may use treadmills, steps, medicine balls, resistance bands, isometric exercises, weights and more to improve muscle control and movement. A physical therapist uses physical movement to help heal the patient, but also can sometimes prescribe medication as appropriate. A physical therapist can also become board certified in one of nine specialty areas.

    Why is physical therapy important?

    Physical therapy can help you recover range of motion and ease pain after injury, accident or illness. Many people are prescribed physical therapy by their primary care doctor or specialist after a car accident, surgery or sports-related injury. You don’t need a doctor’s referral to start physical therapy, but unless you are paying out of pocket for the services, your insurance provider might require a referral. Physical therapy is also a medical solution for pain associated with chronic illness such as osteoarthritis and can be used for recovery after a stroke or other neurological disorders.

    Physical therapy teaches you how to move your body in a safe and healing way to regain strength and movement. During a physical therapy session, the PT will teach you to use medical exercise equipment and approved exercises to regain your lost flexibility and improve your mobility where possible. You may use treadmills, steps, medicine balls, resistance bands, isometric exercises, weights and more. From young children to seniors, patients of any age can benefit from the science-based movements and exercises that encourage flexibility, rebuild muscle, and ease stiff joints.

    How much does a physical therapy session cost?

    The national average cost for a physical therapy session is $60 to $80, although the cost may be higher if the patient pays out of pocket for the services instead of being covered by insurance. Physical therapy sessions may last from 30 to 120 minutes, depending on the therapist and your medical needs. When paying out of pocket, session rates may range from an average of $75-$300 or more, depending on the location, length of session, and specialization of the therapist. Standard out-of-pocket rates average $150 per session. According to the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties, physical therapists may become board certified in one of nine specialties: Cardiovascular and Pulmonary, Clinical Electrophysiology, Geriatrics, Neurology, Oncology, Orthopaedics, Pediatrics, Sports, and Women's Health. To receive this board specialist certification, the physical therapist must complete a minimum of 2,000 hours of clinical work in their specialty area and pass an exam. A physical therapist who is board certified in a specialty may charge higher rates to account for their advanced training and expertise.
