Have you or someone in your family been injured and are in need of physical rehabilitation? If so, Montgomery County has numerous physical therapy facilities for you to go to. With that said, when it comes to rehabbing an injury you want to ensure that you are working with the best physical therapist. The other big thing that you want to look into when choosing a physical therapy provider is their facility. Have you ever walked into a doctors office and it’s filled with medical devices that seem like they are hundreds of years old? It doesn’t make you feel very comfortable knowing that your doctor is using these outdated instruments, does it? You want to find a physical therapy provider with an updated facility so that you can feel comfortable that your therapist is working with all of the latest and greatest technologies. So, with all of that being said, one of the best physical rehabilitation centers in all of Montgomery County is Good Shepherd in Souderton, PA.
Good Shepherd Physical Therapy-Souderton is run by Kathleen Fortier, PT, DPT. Kathleen has successfully treated a wide variety of orthopedic injuries, as she specializes in orthopedic manual therapy. Kathleen is so good at what she does that on more than one occasion she has accurately diagnosed a patient’s injury before her patient has gotten a MRI on the problem area. Kathleen has made recommendations on what she feels the issue is and when the patient comes back to Good Shepherd after getting his/her diagnosis, it turns out that Kathleen was 100% correct. Kathleen loves what she does and she makes sure that it comes through when working with patients. Kathleen says, “my vision is that every patient who walks through the door is examined thoroughly and effectively and receives evidence-based treatment tailored to his or her individual needs. My goal is that my patients regain their functional independence and exceed their own expectations and goals during the recovery process.”
