Dr. Daniel Lombardi - DPT email@example.com
Daniel, Somerworth PT's Owner/Manager is a graduate of Franklin Pierce earning his Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2009. Daniel chose to become a Physical Therapist while pursuing his undergraduate degree in Biology at the University of New Hampshire where he realized a passion for sports medicine. During his Doctorate Studies, Daniel worked with patients throughout the seacoast area focusing on individuals recovering from total joint replacements, orthopedic injuries, spinal injuries as well as chronic and acute conditions.
Daniel opened Somersworth PT to create a collaborative approached environment to allow patients to receive the most up to date treatment. At Somersworth PT Daniel looks forward to utilizing his skills working with patients with spinal dysfunction through mobilization/manipulations (adjustments) and progressive resistive strengthening which targets the individuals’ pathology. Daniel takes a full system approach in the treatment of all patients by including a biomechanical assessment of the feet, lower extremities and at times making foot ware recommendations along with custom foot orthotics if necessary.
Daniel is a certified provider of the Graston Technique utilizing patented instruments allowing him to detect and treat scar tissue which prohibits healthy soft tissue mobility. This technique has been found extremely effective in the treatment in both acute and chronic conditions including: neck pain, headaches, lower back pain, hip pain, knee pain, elbow pain (including tennis/golfers elbow), plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendonitis.
Daniel is one of the leading therapists certified in Dry Needling (DN).
DN is a treatment which utilizes small filament needles (acupuncture needles) to deactivate or eliminate trigger points (knots) in muscles which are associated with decreased flexibility and muscle function. This treatment has been highly successful in the treatment of patients with chronic headaches, neck and lower back pain as well as sciatica symptoms.
Daniel looks forward to helping all his patients meet their individual recovery goals whether it’s returning to sports, taking a daily walk or just waking up pain free.
Daniel is a proud member America Physical Therapy Association (APTA) in both the Private Practice and Orthopedic sections.
Daniel resides in Stratham NH with his wife and two young children.
