The owner established Lodo Physical Therapy in order to provide Denver and its surrounding areas with the absolute best physical therapists the area has to offer.
Our philosophy at Lodo PT is that we are the kind of practice where each patient & PT operate autonomously, as a team. It also means the utilization of a variety of evidence based treatments and skills.
...that our therapists have over a decade of development in their own methods, are constantly exploring the ever evolving industry, and are a perfect blend of skill & education.
...at Lodo PT, there are no injury explicit protocols, no physical therapy aids, no exercise techs or assistants. You and your PT manage your care together.
