Healing and Health through Physical Therapy Patient Portal Make a Payment
Physical therapy (PT) is hands-on, collaborative care between a patient and a practitioner that aims to ease pain and help a person function, move, and live better. It can both prevent and heal chronic or acute injury. At St. Vincent, PT is an essential clinic and offers traditional therapies along with some new innovations for pain management, injury prevention and general physical conditioning and fitness.
It’s helpful to know about two notable changes in PT delivery in the recent past. In 2015, Colorado became what is known as a direct access state, which means that obtaining a referral from a physician or other healthcare provider for PT isn’t required to receive care. Second, as of 2015 a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree is a qualifying degree, and it includes training in all areas of musculoskeletal treatments and doctoral-level research.
St. Vincent Health’s Doctors of Physical Therapy, David Cimino – PT, DPT, SCS, CSCS, and Kelly Bergkessel- PT, DPT, COMT, and Walter Hafner – PT, DPT, are dedicated healers who advance their skills with equal parts science and art. Their culture of caring is evident in new offerings from the St. Vincent PT clinic:
