It's Time for YOU to be the Priority!
By combining a calm, quiet environment that is conducive to healing and one-on-one quality care with a physical therapist, Koch Physical Therapy will help you get back to doing what you love!
In addition to the skills I've offered patients previously (like IASTM, dry needling, and cupping), I now offer pediatric pelvic floor treatments for pediatric bladder/bowel incontinence, as this can have a profound psychological effect on a child and physical therapy can provide life-changing results.
I am also providing women's health services for treatment of pain and issues during pregnancy and postpartum, and pelvic floor therapy addressing urinary incontinence and pelvic pain. I know that as women, we have a tendency to put ourselves last and tackle other's needs before our own. I want to help MAKE YOU A PRIORITY by providing services for women to address what's causing their pain or contributing to their limitations.
I am a self-pay (also known as out-of-network) physical therapy clinic, which means I take payment (which can include HSA/FSA) at the time of service for my services. If you're interested in submitting self-claims to your insurance, I will gladly provide the codes and information you need to work with your individual insurance plan to then potentially receive reimbursement or apply towards your OON deductible. You'll know the full cost upfront; you won't have to worry about a co-pay now and possibly the remainder of your bill later. I also provide dry needling as a stand-alone service for those wanting dry needling only and not interested in other physical therapy services. Lastly, I do NOT have a relationship with Medicare, so I am unable to provide services to Medicare beneficiaries at this time.
Dry Needling can be an excellent treatment option, either on its own or as part of a physical therapy treatment plan, to address myofascial trigger points, tissue restrictions, and pain. Over the years, I have found dry needling to be especially helpful for addressing headaches, neck and shoulder pain, back pain, plantar fasciitis, as well as other musculoskeletal issues.
Whether your child is experiencing bedwetting, urinary or stool leakage during the day, constipation, or other voiding dysfunctions, physical therapy CAN HELP. Rather than waiting for your child to potentially "grow out" of a bowel or bladder dysfunction, let's address the issue right away with pediatric pelvic floor therapy (including biofeedback training) and avoid any additional undue stress on your child and family.
The vast majority of women experience back or pelvic pain during pregnancy and postpartum. Physical therapy can help address many of the changes and pains that occur before and after baby's arrival, whether it's pelvic floor issues, neck and shoulder pain from holding or nursing a newborn, and everything in between.
Many women, regardless of age or if they've had children, experience urinary incontinence: some have leakage whenever they run, jump, cough, sneeze, or laugh, whereas others may experience a sudden urge to urinate and then leak. This may be common, but it is not normal. Also, many women experience pelvic pain with certain activities like OB/GYN examinations, tampon use, sexual intimacy, etc. Pelvic floor therapy can address all of these issues, plus more.
Just like any other joint, physical therapy can address many pains and issues associated with the temporomandibular (jaw) joint. Education and skilled hands-on techniques have great success with reducing jaw pain and dysfunction, as well as headaches associated with TMD.
Hi there! I am a Putnam County native, originally from Miller City. After earning my Bachelor of Science in Education and Allied Professions degree from The University of Dayton and then my Doctorate of Physical Therapy from The Ohio State University, I moved back to the area and married my husband, Chad. Since May of 2013, I have worked in various therapy settings (skilled nursing facilities, hospital, outpatient orthopedics) with a variety of patient populations, ranging from pediatrics to geriatric patients. I have been using my additional training for Integrative Dry Needling for 3 years, which I find to be a game-changer for many patients seeking pain relief.
I have also undergone additional trainings for pediatric incontinence (bedwetting, daytime urine and/or stool leakage), pregnancy and postpartum rehabilitation, and pelvic floor therapy, as I feel these are areas of the rehab world that need more attention and treatment options.
I chose to be an out-of-network PT provider because I want the freedom and flexibility to treat patients how I see fit in order to achieve their goals as soon as possible.
I look forward to helping you and your family!
