Hampton Physical Therapy Helps Get the Community Back on Their Feet

By Kelly Church

At Hampton Physical Therapy, keeping patients comfortable and strong after an injury is of the upmost importance, which is why Owner and physical therapist Dr. Kate Serodio uses methods that include dry needling, stretching, spinal thrust manipulations and more to treat pain. The Hampton, NH physical therapy clinic accepts patients with all injuries and conditions, but most commonly treats athletic conditions, with Serodio herself specializing in plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonosis and tennis elbow.

"There are a plethora of conditions we treat every day including painful conditions from the back and neck as well as general soft tissue pain and injuries," Serodio says. "Plus, we excel at providing post-operative joint replacement therapy to assist patients to get back to their everyday best."

Many patients come after previously consulting a primary care physician and being referred directly to physical therapy. Others, since New Hampshire is a direct access state, come to Hampton Physical Therapy on their own because insurance companies don't require medical referrals from a physician.

In the case of the latter, Serodio says her therapists conduct a very thorough evaluation of the patient to determine what is causing the pain before moving on to an individualized treatment plan. This is when Serodio and her team develop a plan of action, which can include stretching, massage, manipulation, dry needling (a form of therapy similar to acupuncture) and more. For patients with foot pain, they can also offer custom foot orthotics to help ease pain by properly positioning the bones in the foot, ankle and knee.

"Once we feel our patient is ready to graduate from our in-clinic treatment, they are carefully instructed to continue a customized home treatment plan, which may include various exercises related to the condition they were treated for," Serodio says. "This may include a stretching regimen, home exercises with equipment, walking, swimming or going to their local gym to workout."

However, Serodio says the staff at Hampton Physical Therapy is always more than willing to help patients after their treatment in the office has ended, especially to stay safe and healthy later on. Serodio says that athletics account more about 70% of medical issues. At Hampton Physical Therapy, it's recommended that athletes reintroduce their body to training slowly, gradually and consistently increasing intensity while maintaining recovery.

"We pride ourselves on providing the most clinically effective and most evidence-based physical therapy with a goal of getting you in the quickest and most cost effective manner," Serodio says.

According to Serodio, the cost of getting treatment at Hampton Physical Therapy is about 200% to 300% less than hospital-based physical therapy. Patients aren't sacrificing quality either. Serodio recently became one of only 46 board certified orthopedic specialists in the state, a major achievement that allows her patients to know they are receiving great care. Additionally, all of her business' therapists have Doctorate of Physical Therapy degrees from accredited universities. Hampton Physical Therapy also has a second location in Seabrook, NH.
