Movement is Medicine

New Moon Physical Therapy Services

How is New Moon PT different than any other PT practice?

You are treated like family. Always. We're talking small town Vermont family. 

Established patients have constant access to Dr. Davida answering questions via email, phone, text, and an exercise app with video and picture capabilities.

Dr. Davida not only works for you, but she makes sure you know she is here to support you in your village.

You are treated comfortably at home rather than in an unfamiliar office space. 

Exercises are tailored to your lifestyle and home environment.

All sessions are 1:1 with a 90 minute evaluation and 60 minute follow up.

Treatment sessions are both hands-on and exercise based. 

Dr. Davida stands by what she says and does, and will gladly refer to other professionals who will help her patients meet their goals.

Post-Partum

Beginning at 2 weeks post partum, a new mama can begin working on herself to create a strong foundation needed to return to increased activity levels, exercise, and anything which requires physical demand. One-third of all women have a pelvic floor dysfunction after giving birth; and all women go through postural and muscular, changes during pregnancy that can lead to pain and movement dysfunction. 

New Moon is here to guide the healing mama on the road to optimal recovery. What does that mean for you? Being able to be the busy and active mom you are without worrying about pain, discomfort, and leakage (and enjoy intimacy with your spouse again)! 

ONCE POST PARTUM, ALWAYS POST PARTUM!

If you have kids, your body is still considered post partum due to what it has been through (even if it was a while ago)! New Moon is here to help you with those "common, but not normal" symptoms you thought you had to live with. It's time to get your body back into the shape it deserves to be in so you can keep up the pace without annoying pain and bladder disturbances.

Return to Run Postpartum

The return to run process can begin immediately following birth to lay down a good foundation before actual running begins. A return to run screen is performed at 12 weeks with treatment being centered around areas of weakness. Our return to run goal is your return to run goal.
