Physical therapy has been deemed an essential service and we will continue to operate in person during the pandemic. We are pleased to offer telehealth visits for appropriate clients. Telehealth is covered by most insurances including Medicare.
We are using an appropriate HIPAA compliant platform for our client’s protection as well as avoiding the recent onset of hacking that has occurred on other non HIPAA compliant sites.
Our office is currently open Monday-Fridays. Please call our office for instructions on how to schedule/request a telehealth visit if you prefer to remain in the safety of your home.
We ask that if you are experiencing symptoms, such as fever, cough, or breathing difficulties, that you call our clinic to reschedule your appointment or change to a telehealth visit. We will work to accommodate patients to the best of our ability. We continue to monitor guidance from the CDC, as well as the Michigan Department of Community Health and at local levels and will make changes as necessary to keep our patients and staff healthy.
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.

Committed to You.
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.
