Physical Therapy with Dr. Michelle Slaughter

I will collaborate with you and your psychologist to achieve your goals for improved physical health. As a trauma-aware clinician, I am familiar with the difficulties someone who is re-experiencing traumatic events might face in a busy outpatient physical therapy clinic. I provide personalized one-on-one physical therapy in a small setting, typically for 45- or 60-minute sessions. Your physical therapy treatment session can be influenced by tools you may already use, such as mindfulness and grounding techniques. I provide evaluation and treatment of a wide variety of neurological and musculoskeletal conditions. I provide manual therapy (hands-on) techniques, therapeutic exercise prescription, therapeutic activities, balance training, and gait training according to your individual physical health and mobility goals.
