“My daughter is looking stronger than ever and working on her comeback! She is also happy, making practice sets and loving her sport again—in large part due to your work with her.”
Orthopedic Manual Therapy Specialists, LLC, welcomes you to the way orthopedic physical therapy should be: personalized, hands-on, one-on-one care. Our licensed physical therapists are dedicated to helping you achieve your goals and enjoy a pain-free life.
What Is Manual Physical Therapy?
Manual physical therapy is the use of highly skilled, hands-on techniques to diagnose and treat impaired or altered function throughout the body. This includes the bones, joints, and soft tissues like muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia, as well as the blood vessels, lymphatics, and nerves that influence them.
Injury Management & Sports Performance
Whether you are trying to combat chronic pain or you want to enhance your athletic abilities, the physical therapists on our team at OMT Specialists are experts at both injury management and sports performance therapy.
If you have gotten injured in the past—in a car accident or on the playing field—manual physical therapy can help you recover and give you the freedom to live a pain-free life. Our services include treatments for spine/back pain, neck pain, running pain, ankle pain, joint pain, head pain, and TMJ/jaw pain.
If you’re an athlete, from the weekend warrior to the professional level, sports performance physical therapy can help you not only stay fit, but also stay healthy. We here at OMT Specialists strongly believe that you cannot put fitness on dysfunction; all that does is further ingrain faulty, inefficient movement patterns that will ultimately break down over time—basically, you will get really good at moving really badly until your body says, “Enough!”
There is all too often a sacrifice of health to achieve fitness. While that is a necessary risk at the high-end Olympic and professional level, the majority of us do not need to make that compromise. This is where the experts here at OMT Specialists come in: We help tip the scales back in favor of health while maximizing fitness. And for those professionals out there, we understand the sacrifices you make and the demands of your sport—from World Cup-level rock climbing to professional golf, Division 1 track, professional soccer, Olympic weightlifting, and much more—and can help you stay as healthy as possible to keep you in your career.

Alice hopes to play professionally when she finishes college, whether in the NWSL or a different league, potentially abroad.
“I have played soccer for most of my life and have battled shin splints and repeating minor injuries since I was a freshman in high school. Seeing Dr. Cooper completely solved my problem with shin splints—which had previously made fitness training very difficult. Even after that problem was solved, continually working with him has served very important maintenance functions, decreasing the minor injuries along with helping to relieve general aches and pains. The decrease in injuries and pain made it easier for me to keep up with my intense training schedule and to continually reach my goal of improving my skills to become the best I can be.” – Alice Walker
