Welcome to Erbst OrthoSport Physical Therapy
Erbst OrthoSport Physical Therapy was created to provide clients with high quality, one-on-one physical therapy intervention. As the name suggests, rehabilitating orthopedic and sports injuries is my focus. I enjoy treating runners, cyclists, swimmers, dancers and weekend warriors of all ability levels. Yoga, pilates and fitness class enthusiasts also get injured from time to time. While injuries can have acute mechanisms, there often exists an underlying biomechanics or postural deficit. In order to truly recover from an injury, the underlying cause must be identified and addressed. Abnormal postural alignment, faulty movement patterns, structural foot faults, muscle weaknesses and myofascial restrictions can all lead to injury.
My approach accomplishes these things:
- Identification of the specific injured tissue
- Education of the client regarding the specific anatomical, physiological and biomechanical reasons the injury likely occurred
- Creation of an environment that facilitates healing of this tissue. This may include soft tissue and/or joint mobilization, myofascial release, trigger point dry needling, cupping, IASTM or other manual techniques
- Design and instruction of the client in a home exercise routine that specifically addresses the injured tissue as well as the underlying dysfunction
EOS is an out-of-network physical therapy clinic. This means that I do not participate with any insurance companies. Treatment session costs qualify within Health Savings Accounts and toward insurance plan out-of-network deductibles. Associated documentation for filing is available upon request. Evaluations and follow-up treatment sessions are typically 40 minutes with a cost of $80 (no additional cost for dry needling). If a client requests an extended evaluation or subsequent visit (60 minutes) that might include video taping/analysis or extensive exercise instruction, the cost is $120. Abbreviated (20 minute sessions) are also available by client request for dry needling only. However, I don't recommend this since making time for soft tissue mobilization immediately following dry needling treatment significantly reduces muscle soreness.
What I Do
Erbst OrthoSport provides individualized, one-on-one physical therapy sessions that allows me to not only treat symptoms, but more importantly investigate, identify, and treat the underlying cause of the pain. I work with people who have orthopedic or sports injuries, as well as those suffering from chronic pain syndromes. Helping people reduce or eliminate their pain so they can lead more productive, enjoyable lives is part of the reason why I truly love what I do. Whether it is a joint or soft tissue mobility restriction or an abnormal postural habit, Todd has the experience and knowledge to locate and address the source of the issue. My skilled physical therapy interventions consist of manual techniques including cupping, dry needling, and IASTM.
