Todd and Liza Attend 3-Day FMT Course

Todd Vanatta and Liza Piper, Physical Therapists at Northern Rehab Physical Therapy Specialists, recently attended a course in Milwaukee, WI on FMT Foundations. This 3 day course focused on learning current literature and evidence for screening for emergent issues, urgent and otherwise throughout the spinal region. In the course they worked on advanced palpation skills and clinical reasoning and decision making, and developing reliable diagnostic methods. Physical therapists are trained to evaluate and determine the appropriateness for physical therapy and screen for risks that would need further evaluation from your physician.

Todd and Liza work at Northern Rehab's Genoa location. They approach each case on an individual basis, assessing the person as a whole to find all of the contributing factors to restore full, efficient function. They will use a combination of advanced manual therapy techniques, re-education to the effected muscles, and exercise. Todd and Liza treat all orthopedic cases and are accepting new patients. To make an appointment, or for any questions, please contact us at 815.784.6417.

Should I ask my doctor to refer me if I think I may need therapy?

Definitely. When you have a problem you think may be helped by physical therapy ask your doctor or give us a call and we will help you to determine if this is a problem that may be helped by physical therapy.

Your Right to Choose

The decision of where you go to receive treatment is
yours. If you have a specific therapist or practice you
would like to go to, you should let your doctor or
insurance company know this. Not all physical
therapists or practices are the same and the choice
of your provider is yours.
