Physical Therapy

Following a thorough evaluation, our licensed therapists provide each patient with an individualized treatment approach. Our ultimate goal is obtaining superior functional outcomes that allow patients to return to a full life of sports, work, and recreation. Shore Orthopaedics’ Physical Therapy Team combines the latest therapy techniques with a continuous learning process giving our patients the best in rehabilitation services. Our staff members attend continuing education courses throughout the year to stay current with state-of-the-art equipment and techniques. We also allow our therapist ample time to tailor their treatment to each patient’s specific needs. We emphasize manual therapy techniques, which means our patients primarily receive hands-on care. We complement manual therapy with education and exercise programs helping patients gain independence by learning how to manage conditions on their own. Shore Orthopaedic Physical Therapy strives to create a comfortable, fully-equipped environment for our patients so that you are back to 100% when your rehabilitation is complete. The Shore Orthopaedic Physical Therapy Center is managed by Doug Dannehower, PT. Doug is an Orthopaedic Certified Specialist (OCS), of NovaCare Rehabilitation, and has over twenty years of experience including hands-on treatment of professional and college athletes, such as members of the Philadelphia Flyers.

Individually focused comprehensive treatment includes: custom molded splints, hands-on soft tissue mobilization/stretching, individualized exercise programs, education in injury prevention, and ergonomic training.
