Physical Therapy Clinic – Meet the Bethesda Physiocare® Team

Most of our patients report that physical therapy at Bethesda Physiocare® is quite different from what they have experienced in other physical therapy clinics.

  • Physical therapy in our clinic is always one-on-one; we never “double book” appointments and we reserve ample time to address patients’ specific needs.
  • All physical therapists have been trained in the technique of trigger point dry needling and orofacial therapy.
  • Our physical therapists are experts in the physical therapy diagnosis of movement impairments and continue to attend post-graduate courses.
  • At Bethesda Physiocare®, we work as a team and commonly consult with each other to assure you the best possible care.
  • All physical therapists at Bethesda Physiocare® are members of several professional organizations, including the American Physical Therapy Association, the International Association for the Study of Pain, the American Academy of Orofacial Pain, and the American Academy of Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapists, among others.

Our Physical Therapy Process

At Bethesda Physiocare®, we recognize that physical therapy doesn’t just mean treating pain. Quality physical therapy requires education, pain management, training, posture stabilization, strengthening, stability, and flexibility to come to the best results. We strive to understand each patient’s daily activities so we can form a plan inside and outside of our physical therapy clinic.

During the initial phase of physical therapy, the emphasis is often on pain management and self-care skills. As soon as possible, patients progress towards more functional training, which may include exergaming, specific strengthening exercises, stabilization, posture training, and aerobic activities. Our ultimate goals are to increase the activity tolerance in individuals suffering acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions and to return patients back to a functional lifestyle, work, and recreational activities.

Our physical therapists examine each patient thoroughly and develop individualized treatment plans. While we have several clinical specialties—including orofacial physical therapy, performing arts physical therapy, pelvic pain/dysfunction and issues of continence and chronic pain physical therapy—our physical therapists are highly skilled in all areas of musculoskeletal dysfunction.
