Meghan Schlattmann, PT, DPT, CSMT, CSCS Physical Therapist
I grew up in Omaha, NE graduating from Duchesne Academy of the Sacred Heart in 1997. I earned a Bachelor’s of Arts degree from The College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA in 2001, majoring in English and Pre-Medical studies. I then graduated from Creighton University with my Doctor of Physical Therapy degree in 2005.
Being involved with sports from a young age, I developed a great appreciation for physical therapists and a deep interest in how the body works and heals. While in physical therapy school, I developed a huge interest in manual therapy for the treatment of spinal issues.
As a result, I became a Certified Spinal Manual Therapist (CSMT) in 2011 through the International Spine and Pain Institute. This also equipped me to effectively help those with chronic pain issues.
Why Physical Therapy?
Physical therapists (PT) are experts in the way the body moves. They are an integral part of your care team at Think and work side by side with your doctor. Our Doctors of Physical Therapy use scientifically-based techniques to improve pain and function and prevent injury or disability, so that you can get moving at your personal best.
If you are looking for an alternative to surgery, pain medication, or if you notice changes in your strength, balance or walking ability, consider physical therapy. PTs help restore motion, strength and endurance to improve your overall function and quality of life.
Some of the conditions we treat
Your PT will develop a treatment program for your individual needs and goals. Treatment may emphasize pain reduction, strengthening, flexibility, postural alignment, balance, gait and endurance training to manage movement problems associated with:
Orthopedic conditions (like acute or chronic pain from arthritis, injury, or surgery)
Neurological conditions (such as stroke, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis)
Cardiac or pulmonary conditions (heart attack, bypass surgery or COPD)
What can you expect from a Physical Therapist?
After careful examination, your PT will combine science with inspiration to teach you how to prevent or manage a health condition and help motivate you during your treatment so you can function optimally. Your PT will help you understand your body so you will achieve long-term health benefits.
