Physical therapy can improve your mental health as well as your physical strength. We believe a physical therapist can help with a variety of different issues from an injury to chronic pain as well as overall mental health.
A physical therapist can not only provide an individual with exercises to help with strength, and stability in their body but also work as part of a unique care team to provide the best overall treatment for clients.
Hello, I'm Allison Marsden, PT, DPT, OCS, PYT
I am a 1996 graduate of the Ohio University School of Physical Therapy and received a
Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Shenandoah University in 2009. I am Board-
Certified in Orthopedic PT and am trained in the treatment of pelvic floor dysfunctions
(pelvic pain, incontinence, pre/post-natal recovery, etc.). For over 25 years I have
helped people get back on track following illness, injury, pregnancy/delivery, and
surgery. I have served as adjunct faculty at Walsh University and teach continuing
education courses on subjects such as Pain NeuroScience Education and Yoga as a
therapeutic intervention in healthcare.
I also practice Medical Therapeutic Yoga (MTY)which allows me to integrate western
medicine (traditional PT) with evidence-based eastern approaches (yoga and
mindfulness). This integrative practice is extremely effective because it goes beyond
the physical body and acknowledges the whole person. Yoga is lifestyle medicine and
considers how factors such as stress response, sleep, diet, physical activity, and social
wellness contribute to the pain experience. MTY is also an ideal treatment option for
post-natal recovery. It utilizes breath practices to improve pressure control in the pelvic
region and is an excellent way to restore core and pelvic floor stability.
So if you are having any limitation in moving or participating in your daily activities, we
are here to support you at The Center for Renewed Minds. Schedule a PT evaluation
by calling 330-826-1430.
