"My head, neck and shoulder pain resulting from a snowmobile accident prevented me from participating in everyday activities until Theresa started treating me.

what to expect when you visit TPPT
After a thorough initial assessment of the patient's medical history, an evaluation of posture, joint mobility, muscle play, fascial tissue and neural tension takes place. Next, a therapeutic plan and intervention program designed for the individual patient is formed. In addition to manual techniques, a therapeutic exercise program is developed for the patient to continue their care at home. Treatments are approximately one hour in length.
"I worked closely with Theresa for several years when she was affiliated with my clinic in Excelsior. I came to appreciate and respect Theresa's abilities as a therapist and her great rapport with patients. Patients I referred to her would return to me expressing their gratitude for what she was able to accomplish to improve their pain and function. Her work complemented my practice and treatment method called Prolotherapy, helping patients take that additional step to return to the things they love to do. I highly recommend Theresa to anyone looking to get closer attention and better results than they would with the standard physical therapy formulas. She's outstanding!"
