JAMES J. SEYKOT, PT, DPT

JAMES J. SEYKOT“I sought a career where I could make a difference and impact people’s lives by helping improve their function, diminish their pain and restore independence on a daily basis. Every day presents new challenges and is unique. I get to meet some very interesting people and feel a real connection to them as they endeavor to recover from injury, surgery or illness.

“I take patient care and physical therapy personally and empathize with each patient. I encourage an open dialogue with patients and staff to make sure we are all pursuing the same direction toward an optimal outcome. My goal is to achieve therapy goals while being mindful of the patient’s time constraints and financial limits.

“I aim to give my patients excellent service, undivided listening to hear their concerns and quality care they would recommend to their family and friends. I remain focused on leading-edge therapy techniques and evidence-based treatments aligned with the patient’s and physician’s goals and needs.”

In his free time, James enjoys golf, biking and fitness. James also enjoys continuing education, and staying current with best practices and evidence.

ANDREA PRICE, PT, ATC

ANDREA PRICE“I chose physical therapy because of my strong desire to help people and engage people from all walks of life. I love the fact that it allows me to use my great listening skills and think independently about the best ways to help clients solve their physical problems.

“I take a hands-on approach to physical therapy and athletic training. My goal is to eliminate the usual barriers to successful communication, prepare every client emotionally, physically and mentally to exceed their personal expectations and help them reach their full potential. I enjoy seeing the benefits from clients who are glowing with success.

“I hope to give my patients a positive, motivational environment in which to fulfill their long-term goals and participate fully in satisfying lifestyles. I genuinely care about every client and I am their advocate throughout the recovery process.”

Andrea is a self-professed lifelong learner who enjoys continuing education and the benefits that come from evidence-based research and the newest techniques. She also loves the peace and beauty of the great outdoors.

KATHRYN DEVINNEY, PT

KATHRYN DEVINNEY“In my 28 years of experience as a clinician, I have met a variety of patients with an array of physical limitations and challenges. I treat both orthopedic and neurological patients. I have learned, practiced and shared techniques including McKenzie, Sahrmann and various approaches for joint mobilization/manipulation. I treat both pediatric and adult scoliosis. My neurological focus areas include Parkinson’s and multiple sclerosis. My experience, continuing education, keeping current with evidence-based research, continues to enhance my clinical skills. Through repeated and focused therapy, I have seen patients regain their strength, their mobility and their confidence. I have seen the benefits of stretching, strengthening and manual techniques. But what truly makes the difference, what truly leads to success and to regained function, is patient engagement and hope.

“Hope presents as a chain reaction. When patients feel hope, they become more engaged and improved function returns much more rapidly. In order to feel hope, patients need to play an active role in their therapy. My focus on patient education and empowerment has been a key component of my treatments and my therapy plans. To me, physical therapy is a partnership in which clinician and patient share equal roles. I want you to recognize your full potential and to understand each step and component of your therapy plan. Open, clear and positive communication is essential to the process, to achieving increased musculoskeletal and neurological function. Listening is a skill that is easily disregarded in today’s frenzied world, but it is a skill that I both treasure deeply and continue to sharpen.

“As your physical therapist, I am both your advocate and your partner in healing. Pain and disability should not be a permanent part of your life. Together, we can restore function and mobility. We will get you up and moving as you should be, and we will do it together. I hope to be part of your healing process here at Cornerstone Physical Therapy.”

Kathy has 28 years of clinical experience. She has specialized experience and interest in both orthopedic and movement disorders associated with multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease. She is an advocate for her patients, helping them maximize their greatest physical potential.

In her spare time, Kathy enjoys being with her family, fishing, tennis and running.

THOMAS CANTWELL, PTA

THOMAS CANTWELL“I chose physical therapy for several reasons. First of all, I had always wanted to do something within the medical field. After working in a different profession for several years, I decided to go back to school for physical therapy because it would allow me to spend a lot of time with my patients – getting to know them, getting to understand their symptoms and helping to improve their quality of life.
“Being able to spend quality time with patients and being able to watch them progress and improve is what makes physical therapy such a wonderful profession. Being able to watch a patient progress over time and knowing you had a hand in their recovery is a very rewarding experience.
“I like to keep a light and friendly atmosphere in the clinic while making sure that my patients perform their therapeutic exercise programs effectively and proficiently. I strive to have my patients get the most out of the time they spend with us so that they can improve on a daily basis. I hope to give my patients a better quality of life than what they had when they first entered our practice. Being able to return a patient to pre-injury condition or better is key to a successful outcome.”
In his free time, Thomas enjoys being with his family and exercising at the gym. Now that his children are older, one of his favorite family activities is working out at the gym together. He is also involved in his children’s after-school activities and enjoys attending their events and sports activities.

KELLY WADLINGER, PT, DPT

KELLY“Physical therapy is a conservative approach to medicine that allows your body to heal itself. Our body’s were built to be resourceful and when we use them correctly, to their fullest potential, they often can heal and adapt enabling you to get back to living your ideal life . Physical Therapy allows the patient to be in charge of their recovery. As a physical therapist, I strive to involve patients as much as I can in directing their treatment so we can work as a team. Working with my patients and involving them in their plan of care, allows me to learn from them individually. Each patient is unique and will present differently despite their diagnoses. "

"As a recent graduate, my knowledge is based off the latest research and most up to date theories which will help patients get back to their ideal lifestyle. I strive to provide the best recommendations, while providing the highest quality of care. When developing a plan of care, I believe manual therapy is an important piece in every patient’s success. With an hands-on approach, I will better understand your muscle movement and body’s structure. During treatment, I educate my patients about their current condition. I believe, the greatest recoveries begin with the patient having an understanding of their body. I want to put my patient’s in charge of their recovery and health so when they leave they become their best advocate."

"I enjoy keeping active and healthy by practicing crossfit, running, hiking and playing soccer in a women’s league. When time allows, I enjoy cooking, spending time with my family and playing with my dog."

"Whatever your goal may be, I am here to help you reach it."

ALEXANDER STIVERSON, PT, DPT

Alex, PT"I chose to be a physical therapist secondary to a profound interest in the mechanics of human movement.

I am a confident clinician who would consider it my pleasure to facilitate the return to pre-injury activities."

"In my treatment, I emphasize patient education, giving the individual the tools they need to maximize their recovery while facilitating with exercise and manual therapy however I can. I am a partner on the patient’s road to recovery."
