Premier Rehabilitation

Advanced approach to physical therapy helps patients get better faster

Maybe it’s a sports injury or auto accident; maybe a heart attack, stroke or orthopedic condition. For a variety of reasons, many of us may find ourselves in need of physical therapy at some point in our lives. Premier Rehabilitation has the expertise to help patients get better faster and achieve their maximum quality of life, whatever their age or physical challenge.

Jeffrey Cook, PT, DPT, OMPT, and Tyler Wilson, PT, DPT, OMPT, founded Premier Rehabilitation because they share
an advanced approach to physical therapy. Premier focuses on orthopedic manual physical therapy (OMPT), a hands-on approach that integrates the most current evidence-based treatment. OMPT requires an additional two years of specialized training beyond the doctorate of physical therapy, which both Jeff and Tyler hold.

“Our standard is to provide a minimum of 30 minutes of one-to-one manual treatment per session,” Jeff said. “Our highly advanced manual techniques allow for greater pain relief than conventional physical therapy” for many conditions. Premier also instructs patients in specific exercise programs that empower them to continue their success once physical therapy has ended.

Like their approach to treatment, Jeff’s and Tyler’s areas of expertise complement one another, allowing them to provide therapy for a wide range of conditions.

“I have a lot of experience in neuro, cardiac and post-stroke rehabilitation,” Jeff said, “and Tyler works extensively with complex spinal conditions and total joint therapy. He’s also had great outcomes with chronic low back and neck pain, headaches and migraines, and whiplash injuries.” Both excel at sports rehabilitation, which comprises the largest portion of their practice. Kayla Harrington, a physical therapy technician and personal trainer, adds another dimension to the clinic, working with individuals of different fitness levels to help them achieve their personal goals at a faster rate.

Jeff and Tyler spent a lot of time deciding where to establish their practice, Jeff said, “but we kept coming back to Holt.” The clinic opened in early May and will welcome the community to a grand opening on August 11, 2015.
