Sage Orthopedic Physical Therapy is open in Urbana, MD, bringing to the area a team of local physical therapists who have not only gained a reputation for successful treatment of high school and college sports injuries, but who also take a holistic approach to physical issues and specializes in working with senior citizens and people with chronic pain.
Jeremy and Stephanie Dunker of New Market, both physical therapists with degrees from Andrews University, are accepting patients from Frederick County, Montgomery County, Howard County and the surrounding region at their new office in Urbana, MD. They held their grand opening at the location in the Villages of Urbana, at 3510 Sugarloaf Parkway, Suite G02 next to Subway.
“We are excited to bring our integrated physical therapy and wellness concept to Urbana because we feel that Urbana is a thriving, active, health-conscious community,” Jeremy Dunker said. “We chose this location because the growing population living and working in Urbana and areas between Rockville and Frederick are looking for more options for physical therapy.”
The Dunkers have developed their own holistic treatment program, which integrates traditional, research-based physical therapy with healthy lifestyle change using principles they call The Five Health Habits.
The Five Health Habits:
Sage Orthopedic Physical Therapy treats a variety of problems, including: low back, neck and joint pain; headache; sports injuries; balance and vertigo problems; lymphedema; as well as senior issues such as osteoporosis, arthritis, fall prevention, and chronic pain. They believe education is key to providing clients with tools they can take away after treatment to sustain their healing and healthy lifestyle. A “Personal Fitness” gym program featuring this approach is also available to non-physical therapy patients. They also provide personalized Health Coaching for lifestyle change. All clients get a free membership to Sage’s Online Nutrition & Wellness Program.
Jeremy, an orthopedic certified specialist who was also an assistant professor at Andrews University teaching research and spine treatments to doctoral students, has been doing physical therapy more than 12 years; Stephanie received her masters of science in physical therapy in 2000. “I have a passion for working with an older population treating clients with osteoporosis, arthritis, and balance problems,” Stephanie says.
