Richmond, Va. (PRWEB) March 08, 2014
Tidewater Physical Therapy is pleased to announce that it is now accepting patients at its newest location in Richmond, the Westchester Commons Clinic in Midlothian.
Located at 15757 WC Main Street in the Westchester Commons shopping district, the Westchester Commons clinic offers women’s health services, typical orthopedic care, including treatment for neck and back pain, total joint replacement and sports injury rehabilitation.
The clinic, Tidewater Physical Therapy’s twelfth in the Richmond region, is open Monday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday from 9:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., Wednesday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
“We’re extremely proud to open this clinic and be able to serve patients in a location that’s convenient to professional and personal time,” said Westchester Commons’ Clinical Director, Amanda Tolbert, PT, DPT. Tolbert previously served as a clinician at Tidewater Physical Therapy’s Powhatan Clinic near Richmond. “The location is ideal as Westchester Commons is quickly becoming a pivotal business area in the community. We’re also looking forward to getting more involved and have been very warmly welcomed by the neighboring businesses.”
In addition to treating general orthopedic patients, Tolbert has experience working with women suffering from pelvic pain, incontinence, and pelvic organ prolapse. She has a special interest in treating injuries of the lower extremity, particularly those that are sports-related.
Tolbert takes a holistic approach to her physical therapy practice that combines a balance of therapeutic exercises, manual therapy, and individualized patient education to bring each patient back to their maximal level of functioning.
Knowing that patients can heal better and faster when they can get into a physical therapy clinic in a place that’s convenient and at a time that works around their schedule has long been a key part of Tidewater Physical Therapy’s dedication to clinical excellence and the core of its belief in access, said Jeff Verhoef, PT, MBA.
“Access, which means being open early, late and through lunch, as well as being conveniently located in areas where people live and work, is absolutely a driver for us,” said Verhoef, Tidewater Physical Therapy’s Chief Executive Officer. “Research shows that the sooner we can involve a patient in an active, dynamic physical therapy program – get them access to therapy – the better chance they have for successful outcomes.”
Tidewater Physical Therapy is also “providers for every major insurance company except one,” Verhoef said.

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 three Performance Centers.
Physical therapists (PTs) are health care professionals who diagnose and treat individuals of all ages, from newborns to older adults, with 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 Doctorate 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.
