Finding Paths to Pain Relief And Improving Overall Function!
What is Physical Therapy?
Physical Therapy is by definition “the treatment of disease, injury or deformity by physical methods such as massage, heat treatment, and exercise rather than by drugs or surgery.”
To our Medici Physical Therapy team it is the path to helping our patients reach their maximum functional ability and achieve pain relief.
Your Medici Physical Therapy team utilizes these proven treatments following the guidelines of evidence-based practices:
Therapeutic Exercises: strength, aerobic & endurance conditioning, body mechanics training, flexibility, and range of motion.
Neuro Re-Education: activities focusing on improving movement, balance, coordination and proprioception (perception of the position and movement of the body).
Manual Therapy: Hands-on techniques such as massage, myofascial release, joint movement and passive range of motion focusing on skeletal muscle and joints to address muscle pain, trigger points, joint dysfunction, ligament and tendon pain.
Dry Needling: The use of thin monofilaments (acupuncture needles) to treat trigger points to improve muscle function and decrease pain. Dry needling is a minimally discomforting treatment that provides relief to many patients that receive the procedure.

Bill brings a wealth of knowledge and career experience to his practice of physical therapy. He has been a practitioner for 21 years since graduating from the University of Nebraska Medical Center in 2000.

Here he practiced sports medicine, learned and practiced myofascial release, prescribed and fit custom orthotics, and treated patients from recreational to professional in all major sports.
Bill also was the Senior Manager of Physical Therapy for Barrow Neurosurgical Associates in Phoenix Arizona which was at the time the largest neurosurgical firm in the world. He developed their physical therapy practice, hired, and managed staff to care for the most challenging orthopedic spine cases for this prestigious practice.

Moving to Atlanta in 2012, Bill sought to learn more about treating the body from a holistic perspective. While working for an outpatient physical therapy practice, he became a certified colonic hydrotherapist, kinesiologist, and began practicing craniosacral therapy.
