A branch of rehabilitative health that uses specially designed exercises and equipment to help patients regain or improve their physical abilities.. PT is appropriate for many types of patients, from infants born with musculoskeletal birth defects, to adults suffering from sciatica or the after effects of injury or surgery, to elderly poststroke patients.
Still suffering from chronic pain and sub-optimal function despite years of traditional physical therapy?
For many patients, the traditional "treat one body part at a time" approach is ineffective, impractical, and terribly frustrating.
Dr. Donna Behr uses a body-as-a-system philosophy to address physical pain or dysfunction within the interconnected neuromuscular system. She applies the Postural Restoration Institute (PRI) approach to bring the body back into balance by restoring more symmetrical movement patterns.
Dr. Behr is the only PRI Certified PT in Massachusetts. She brings 30+ years of experience to her practice which focuses primarily on orthopedics, and is available at 360 Degrees of Fitness & Wellness on Monday-Wednesdays.
