At The Doctors of Physical Therapy we focus on goals that matter to our clients. Want to hike the grand canyon? Water ski? Lift weights? We can help you get there.

Our goal at DPT is to help our clients return to active lifestyles without painkillers or surgery. A Discovery Visit with our Scottsdale physical therapists helps people find the root cause of their pain. We then explain it to them in ways they can understand, and we develop an individualized plan to get them back to the things that matter most. This is our method for helping our clients live long lives filled with quality years and experiences.

Check out the recent review from Jessica:

"After trying multiple different chiropractors, prolotherapy, cortisone shots, other physical therapists I had given up hope and was thinking maybe I just needed to have surgery. Finally, after experiencing my back going out, yet once again, I decided to reach out and give The Doctors of Physical Therapy a try...After my first appointment, I had felt about 80% improvement. They are incredible. The entire staff is always so warm and welcoming, attentive and punctual. I sincerely enjoy showing up for my appointments. Making this investment into my physical health has been a decision I will not regret. If you are experiencing any pain or discomfort, I highly suggest not wasting time, and go see them right away. The results speak for themselves."

Did you know the knee pain you experience while cycling, can actually be caused by your back?

Our body is one big tensioning system: Whatever it is attached to, it pulls on.

Most cyclists are familiar with a strip of connective tissue called our iliotibial, or IT band (ITB for short). What is lesser known is the muscle that is attached to the IT band called the tensor fasciae latae, or TFL. The TFL is connected to the pelvis. If our muscles in our hip are weak, the TFL tightens in an attempt to do their work and stabilize the hip. When the TFL tightens, it pulls on the IT band. The ITB is connective tissue. It cannot contract like muscle. So when we feel our ITB is tight, it’s actually because the TFL muscle is in a shortened and contracted position, tensioning the IT band. Our ITB connects all the way from our hip to below our knee, so when the TFL that attaches to it is tight, it will apply unsymmetrical force down at the knee, causing knee pain while cycling.

Oftentimes the place we’re having pain is not the cause of our pain. If you only try to treat the pain at your knee without addressing the root cause, you’ll have a hard time getting rid of that knee pain while cycling and keeping it gone.

Our Story

It’s astonishing how many people have been given advice such as “you’re just getting older” or “you should stop doing that activity…”

Having been on the receiving end of advice like this, the founder of DPT has created a company that has helped hundreds of determined individuals get back to doing what they love, and laugh in the face of bad advice.

The above is a quote from Dr. Tom Padilla himself, in reference to his own difficulty finding help when he needed it most. He has built this company to help others say goodbye to short-term solutions that ease pain, but do not get people back to the activities that matter most.

People who choose to work with DPT know that these activities are what keep them sane, lower their stress levels, and help them sleep at night.
