Pain with everyday activities?
CGPT is always striving to provide the best care for your patients. Below are some important facts you may not know about us.
Commitment to Excellence.
Our PTs have over 50 combined years of experience in orthopedics treating a variety of diagnoses including low back pain, arthritic joints, sports injuries, post op surgeries and more. The therapists focus on “hands on” manual therapy. In addition to the traditional orthopedic conditions, our therapists have their own unique specialties.
Owner/Therapist Stan Guest, O.M.P.T. is an avid runner and specializes in running injuries, foot injuries, and makes custom orthotics.
Staff therapist Melissa Scheck M.P.T. specializes in treating dancers. She has over 20 years of experience teaching classical ballet and continues to teach today.
Our experience equates to decreased number of visits and decreased co-pays and out of pocket expenses for you.
Patient appointments are scheduled one on one with the same licensed physical therapist.
Patients are not expected or asked to exercise independently.
Committed to You.
We focus on educating the patient on how to live life with proper body mechanics. You can see some examples on our Youtube channel - CGPT.
We teach patients the do’s and don’ts of joint protection for a 24 hour period for optimal results. This is key with chronic conditions such as arthritis, plantar fasciitis, bursitis, tendonitis, and chronic pain.
There is more to therapy than ultrasound and hot packs. Without the patient education that is provided at CGPT, results are only short term.
Our office will call your insurance company before you begin treatment.
We have 0% interest financing and do not charge statement fees.
Including rotator cuff injuries, tendinitis, meniscus tears, ITB syndrome, patellofemoral pain
Specialized Treatment for Hypermobility
Hypermobility requires specialized care to understand the amount of pain and difficulty it is to exercise and attend therapy. CGPT has developed a program to safely treat patients with hypermobility, including Ehlers Danlos and Marfan's Syndrome.
Learn the correct form through video analysis and habits outside of your running that are slowing you down
Plantar Fasciitis Treatment
Done all the stretching and ice bottle rolling with no change in your symptoms? CGPT has a different way to treat plantar fasciitis with good success.
Each visit you will see a licensed physical therapist for one on one time. You are not expected to exercise on your own in the clinic
CGPT is specially equipped to treat dancers with rotational discs, SRF fitter board and a small studio with a sprung floor and mirror for a safe environment for dance rehabilitation. Staff therapist Melissa Scheck has a dance background and interned at Harkness Center for Dance Injuries in New York.
CGPT offers multiple treatment options including manual therapy, kinesiotaping, instrument assisted soft tissue, mechanical traction, ultrasound, electrical stimulation as well as extensive education in joint protection which is a key component to long term recovery.
Committed to Excellence. Committed to You.
Essentials of Running Form
Stan has extensive experience in running, cross-country, track as well as a sub-specialty in the treatment of overuse injuries of the foot and leg. In this video he shows you how to have proper cadence to decrease joint pain while running.
How to Safely Get Out of Bed
In addition to our PTs' experience with athletes, runners, and dancers alike, they can also help anyone of all ages improve daily essential activities that may be causing pain. In this video Stan shows us how to get out of bed with proper technique to prevent pain or injury. We will not only help you move better during your visits, but also teach you to sustain it even outside of physical therapy.
Sleeping Position to Decrease Low Back Pain, Sciatica, Knee Pain, or Hip Pain
We spend 1/3 or 1/4 of our day laying and sleeping. How you align your joints will make a difference in how they feel in the morning. If you have a lot of pain when you wake up in the morning, altering your joints and spine into neutral alignment can make a large difference in decreasing morning pain.
