Move Well Welcomes Kostopoulos to Practice
Move Well Physical Therapy is excited to welcome Georgia Kostopoulos, DPT to the practice! Georgia has been working as a Physical Therapist in the Norwood community since 2017, where she developed a great reputation with her patients. Owner Michelle Donohue and Georgia have worked together in the past. Donohue says, "I feel so fortunate that circumstances have worked out that have allowed Georgia to join Move Well part time. Her positive energy and attitude is contagious and when you combine that with her professional knowledge and skill set, I feel the business just took a huge leap forward!"
Georgia has extensive experience in treating patients of all ages with a variety of ailments from general aches and pains, to balance problems to post-surgical rehab. As a Physical Therapist, she helps people improve their mobility, manage pain, recover from injury and prevent future injury. She has advanced training in treating people with jaw pain, or TMJ disorders, and is also a dry needling specialist.
With dry needling a very fine filament needle is inserted through the skin into deeper tissues that are considered trigger points to your pain. Dry needling works by causing micro lesions within the pathological tissue to help loosen up tight tissue, inhibit pain and normalize the inflammatory response.
"I love using dry needling as part of my treatment when appropriate" Kostopoulos says. "I have used it for patients who suffer from chronic headaches, neck pain, calf pain and more and have truly seen it make a positive difference in their outcomes."
As a former collegiate basketball player and competitive swimmer, Georgia also enjoys working with athletes. She says, "I feel so lucky that I have found a career that lets me continue to be active, as well as help other athletes return to the sports they love. I know what it takes to make it to the next level, and truly enjoy helping athletes reach their full potential."
"Georgia's patient centered treatment philosophy fits in perfectly with that at Move Well Physical Therapy" says Donohue. "Through direct one-on-one care for your entire session, we are able to focus our attention on creating a plan of care that addresses your individual needs, challenges and goals. Welcome to the team Georgia!"
