Physical therapy is performed by our highly-educated, licensed health care professionals with the goal of helping reduce pain and improving function - in many cases without surgery and often reducing the need for medication.
This physical treatment primarily includes kneading and manipulation of muscles, joint mobilization and joint manipulation. These techniques are aimed at relaxing tense muscles and restricted joints in order to decrease pain and increase flexibility.
This state of the art piece of Pilates equipment is one of the most famous – and for good reasons. The reformer makes a dramatic impression when you first see one and an even more dramatic change in your body when you use it.
The reformer offers all the benefits of Pilates including strength, flexibility, coordination, and balance. These things, in turn, lead to daily life improvements such as better posture, graceful and efficient movement, and relief from pain associated with physical imbalances such as back pain.
With the growing popularity of CrossFit athletes, our therapists fully understand the needs of this population as well as the unique drive of these athletes to get back to training. We also know how to offer strategies for modification of movements as the patient gradually returns to sport.

A custom orthotic is a device designed to align the foot and ankle into the most anatomically efficient position. They look like insoles, but are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance. Our therapists evaluate your specific need and the orthotics reduce stress and strain on your body by bringing your feet back into proper alignment.

"My experience at DJPT has been nothing but a positive experience. Not only has my condition greatly improved, but I cannot say enough good things about everyone who I have come in contact with at the clinic. From Molly, who always made sure I was scheduled for my appointments, to the technicians who assisted my physical therapist with my exercise and last but certainly not least, Cody, who directed my exercise routine and is responsible for the progress I have made! I have to admit that I was not looking forward to having to come for physical therapy in the beginning, but I will miss the interaction off all these great people!"
