Custom Physical Therapy gives you the choice to recover your body the way your lifestyle demands. It begins with an initial evaluation by Dr. Tom so he can learn your goals and identify underlying problem areas affecting your body’s movement, comfort, and function. Our recommendations are based on your body’s need, what you can do for yourself, and what Dr. Tom can do for you.
In many cases, clients have more than one area they would like to address. We work on the top priority problems, any body part, at any course in our sessions, without having to make a separate appointment. No referral required. Our goal is to have you walking out of the clinic feeling or moving better than you did coming in for each session (results vary).
There are 3 main categories of treatment provided at My PT which include Therapeutic Exercise, Manual Therapy, and Therapeutic Modalities. In general, clients benefit from a combination of these treatments based on symptoms, response to treatment and client preference (ex. To take on a more active role or to receive corrective passive care). When it applies, clients are educated on pain management, positioning for healing and body mechanics. For example, you may benefit from a lesson on how to apply heat, cold, body rubs, or e-stim for daily use on your own. That way we maximize our time together with a focus on special clinical skills.

What makes My PT different from other Physical Therapy clinics?
My PT is an independent-private company that chooses to deliver healing services to our clients at the time they need care. Dr. Tom has the freedom to treat clients for all of their muscle and joint pains or functional movement needs. He gives 100% of his time to listen to what is really going on. This is why we are cash-based, not going through health insurance.
Most health insurance companies create so many rules, Physical Therapists have be told what and how to do their job. Therefore many Physical Therapy clinics today operate under a system to treat the masses by putting everyone into the same program or system. You start with the PT for an evaluation, then by the time your discharged you worked with 7 different therapists, having to retell their story over and over again. My PT solves the continuity of care conundrum by dedicating one therapist to you for every entire treatment.
We don’t let insurance companies tell us how to get people better, that’s our job. There’s no delay to make an appointment because we don’t have to ask for permission to begin care. And the “experimental” treatments we offer have a long track record in the scientific community for being effective ways to boost healing. That’s why the other PT’s are charging extra for treatment Dr. Tom has been practicing since 2010. My PT is just ahead of the healing (insurance) curve, focusing our energy on caring for you.
