Rebecca Kern Steiner, PT, OCS
Credentials: Rebecca graduated from the university of Kentucky in 1988 and has taken extensive post graduate continuing education. In 1994 Rebecca completed a two-year orthopedic residency program and was nationally certified as a specialist in orthopedics. She has lectured at universities in the US and China, taught post graduate continuing education courses for physical therapists, and has had her research published in the Journal of Orthopedics and Sports Physical Therapy.

Specialty: Rebecca is the owner of New Dimensions Physical Therapy. She specializes in designing orthotics and assessing complex biomechanical and musculoskeletal conditions. Rebecca's approach to physical therapy incorporates designing specific exercise programs, soft tissue mobilization, and myofascial release and movement reeducation. She is skilled in treating elite triathletes, rock climbers, runners, ballet dancers as well as patients with fibromyalgia and chronic pain. Rebecca continues to challenge herself with continuing education to include studying various approaches such as the Egoscue Method.

Personal Statement: "My appreciation for the human body and passion for physical therapy began through my experience as a competitive gymnast. My goal as a therapist is to teach patients how to strengthen critical muscles, become more aligned, and to refine their ability to move with increased grace and efficiency. In particular, I look at how alignment and motion in one area (e.g., the foot) affects other regions (e.g., knee, pelvis, spine). This holistic approach has made the greatest difference for my patients and it is so fulfilling to return someone to their sport or daily life not only pain free but with improved performance."

Laura K. wilson, PT, DPT, CEAS, CWT
Credentials: Laura graduated from Iowa State University in Ames, IA with a BS in Psychology in 1992. She graduated with an MS in Physical Therapy from the University of Osteopathic Medicine and Health Sciences in Des Moines, IA in 1999 and later returned to complete her Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2004. She is a Certified Ergonomics Assessment Specialist from the Back School of Atlanta and is a Certified Weight Trainer through the International Weightlifting Association. She is also an advanced level practitioner of the Barnes method of Myofascial Release.

Specialty: Laura brings visceral manipulation, craniosacral therapy and internal pelvic floor myofascial release to New Dimensions PT. She specializes in treating acute and chronic pain syndromes related to the spine and pelvis, migraine headaches, fibromyalgia and TMJ dysfunction. She offers intensives where patients come for sessions at a more concentrated frequency and duration, which allow for deeper work and profound changes to occur over a shorter period of time. For the past 5 years she has intensely focused on treating problems related to the pelvic floor for both men and women. Research now confirms what Laura has found to be true with her patients: releasing the pelvic floor yields significant results in relieving low back, sacroiliac and hip pain.

Personal Statement: "Like Rebecca, I am also a former gymnast. I love the experience of being able to change my own body through exercise, nutrition and hydration. It is amazing how easily it adapts to these changes for the overall health and wellness of my system. I love sharing my knowledge and assisting others to access this adaptability and resiliency in their own bodies so they can achieve optimal performance in the activities they are passionate about. My goal as a therapist is to facilitate that process through education, training and manual therapy. I not only look at the physical aspect, but also appreciate how the dimensions of mind and spirit impact the human body. For example, if a patient has been dealing with chronic back pain, there is an impact on the mind (e.g. depression) and the spirit (e.g. lost hope). The outward body is a reflection of what is going on internally for a person. By assisting that person in the restoration of his/her physical body, there is a shifting that takes place in the mind (e.g. happiness) and spirit (joy, peace, hope). The essence of true healing is bringing the entire ecosystem of a person into wholeness. I am humbled and honored to help patients in their healing journey."
