Dr. Emily Todd, PT, DPT 

 

What made you get into the field of Physical Therapy?

My family works in all different healthcare professions and I wanted to follow in their footsteps. In high school, I decided to take an internship at a physical therapy office and knew physical therapy was the profession for me.  Helping people and being such a pivotal role in their recovery is extremely rewarding to me as a physical therapist. 

 

How long have you been practicing physical therapy?

I have been practicing PT since May 2017. 



What’s your favorite part about being a physical therapist?

My favorite part of physical therapy is seeing patients from start to finish.  At the initial evaluation patients are so limited in their daily lives due to pain, loss of balance, etc. and by the time they finish therapy they are able to go back to doing what they love, or just living more independently.  It is also nice to have the opportunity to develop a close relationship with my patients while doing so. 

 

What’s your favorite PT condition to treat? 

My favorite condition to treat is post-operative cases.  I enjoy treating post-operative cases because in most cases, once the patient gets surgery their condition continues to improve which makes patients more motivated to exercise and get better. 



How can patients benefit from treatment?

Patients can benefit from physical therapy treatments in numerous ways. If pain is your chief complaint, there are numerous manual therapy techniques, pain modalities and therapeutic exercises that physical therapists are highly trained in.  If generalized weakness/gait instability/poor balance is your chief complaint physical therapy can help you to restore strength for normal function and to challenge your balance in a safe controlled atmosphere to improve it. 



What do you love about being part of the Reddy Care team?

I love being a part of the Reddy Care team because everyone is so welcoming and friendly. I have made some great friends at Reddy Care which makes work fun. 



What’s one fun fact about you?

One fun fact about me is that I love going to the gym.
