Main Image

St. Louis Physical Therapy (STLPT) is a local physical therapy company owned and operated by physical therapists Michael Gorman, Kerstin Benya, and Dan Washeck.  Founded in 2002 by Michael Gorman, PhD, PT, DMT, FAAOMPT, St. Louis Physical Therapy has expanded to six locations in the St Louis region focusing on specialized manual physical therapy for patients with neuromusculoskeletal issues. 

Manual therapy is a specialty field of physical therapy. The discipline is defined as skilled, hands on soft tissue, joint mobilization, and joint manipulation techniques, combined with specific therapeutic exercise, to promote optimal healing rates and normalize joint mechanics. It is a unique approach to treatment, going beyond the normal realms of physical therapy to identify tissue-specific pathology and impairments for each patient. In order to provide a high level of care to our patients and referring physicians, many of the physical therapists of STLPT have completed manual therapy residency and fellowship training.
