Richmond, VA (PRWEB) January 19, 2014
Kevin Dintino is an active guy who enjoys cycling and outdoor sports. But this year the Doctor of Physical Therapy is getting out of his comfort zone. He’s paddle boarding and rock climbing, trying out Pilates and doing any new fitness adventure he can come across. The best part? He’s taking the community along for the ride.
Dintino, in partnership with Style Weekly, Richmond’s online source for news, arts, culture and opinion, launched a monthly blog series highlighting each of Dintino’s fitness adventures – RVA Strong.
Dintino, the regional director for Tidewater Physical Therapy (TPTI) clinics in Richmond, consults local experts in each written account, which is accompanied by videos, giving readers an up-close, colorful narrative of his adventures.
His own voice and experience as a physical therapist is present, too, helping readers and viewers understand the proper way to stretch and prepare for exercises and outdoor adventures in hopes of keeping the community injury free.
In his physical therapy practice with TPTI, Dintino takes a specific interest treating and managing sports injuries, helping patients from weekend warriors to professional athletes.
“Richmond has so much to offer anyone searching for an exciting way to adopt a healthier, more active life,” Dintino said.
“With these monthly blog posts, we appeal to the novice, the expert and the thrill-seeker, with step-by-step instructions, safety precautions, and occasionally, a few laughs. The best thing that can come of this series is for us to inspire others to get outside and pursue healthy, active lifestyles.”
Dintino said he’s already having a blast exploring new areas of a city he loves. Dintino made his home in Richmond more than two decades ago, and is an avid hiker and cyclist with a passion for the outdoors.
“There’s no time like the present,” Dintino said after his first adventure, stand-up paddle boarding. “I hope others will try some of these exciting new things, so they can become RVA Strong, too.”

ABOUT TIDEWATER PHYSICAL THERAPY:
Founded in 1986, Tidewater Physical Therapy remains a physical therapist-owned, independent, outpatient physical therapy practice, with more than 30 locations across Southeast and Central Virginia and two Performance Centers.
Physical therapists (PTs) are health care professionals who diagnose and treat individuals of all ages, from newborns to the very oldest, who have medical problems or other health-related conditions that limit their abilities to move and perform functional activities in their daily lives.
PTs examine each individual and develop a plan using treatment techniques to promote the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function, and prevent disability. In addition, PTs work with individuals to prevent the loss of mobility before it occurs by developing fitness- and wellness-oriented programs for healthier and more active lifestyles.
Physical therapists provide care for people in a variety of settings, including hospitals, private practices, outpatient clinics, home health agencies, schools, sports and fitness facilities, work settings, and nursing homes. State licensure is required in each state in which a physical therapist practices.
A Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) degree is a post-baccalaureate 3-4 year degree which may be conferred upon successful completion of a professional doctoral program.
