Therapy Clinic in Delaware!

Now Accepting New Patients & Most Insurances!

What is a Musculoskeletal Disorder?
Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs) are conditions that affect your body's muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments, discs and nerves. MSDs can develop over time or can occur immediately due to overload.

» Learn about the McKenzie Method, and why it is best used for these conditions.

What is the McKenzie Method and how is this different from traditional physical therapy?
This widely respected and comprehensive treatment is tailored for each individual, it:

  1. Focuses more on teaching home exercise program vs coming to the clinic to perform a general exercise program.
  2. Emphasizes active treatment using exercise and minimizes use of passive treatments such as ultrasound, electric stimulation, heat/ice.
  3. Uses manual therapy, when necessary, to supplement the benefits of the exercise.

What to expect on your visit?
Your comfort is our first concern. We provide a clean environment and private treatment rooms. We listen intently, evaluate thoroughly, and involve you in every phase of your treatment program.


What should I Bring?
Please bring your prescription and insurance at the day of visit. See New Patient Reminder »

Don't have a prescription? read about Delaware Direct Access:

In Delaware, the Direct Access law allows you to see a physical therapist without a prescription from a physician. The sooner an injury is treated, the quicker the recovery. If your insurance does not require a referral, you may directly schedule a visit with a physical therapist.

Get the relief and recovery you need NOW – without a physician prescription.


What should I Wear?
Wear or bring loose-fitting comfortable clothes. If we need to examine the lower body, wear or bring shorts. If we need to examine your shoulder, please bring or wear a sleeveless shirt.


How long will my first visit be?
Your first visit will approximately be one hour in length.


Will I be seeing more than one therapist throughout my visit?
The therapist who evaluates you will be the same therapist who will see you at all follow-up visits.

Do I need a referral from my primary doctor?
If referred by a primary care or specialist physician, we communicate with that physician regularly. We have close working relationships with many physicians in the region. If there are any questions concerning your treatment or your condition, we will contact the physician quickly to discuss your care at any time during your treatment at our office.


How frequent are return visits?
Return visits to the clinic are scheduled only as needed. Recommended frequency of return visits is based on referring physician collaboration, results of initial PT assessment, and your lifestyle. We strive to be flexible and creative in achieving PT goals utilizing a treatment model custom-fit to your needs.


What happens if my aches and pain returns?
Flare ups are not uncommon. If the same issues return, regardless of the exercises give to you after treatment, we suggest to follow up with your doctor or see us again. Sometimes a simple change in daily activities and exercises may help as well.


What are some modalities available and how often are they used?
Use of physical therapy modalities, such as ultrasound and electric stimulation, are minimal and used only when necessary to facilitate pain relief, strength or movement.
