Poindexter, who has 24 years of physical therapy experience, said she always had a strong desire to help people and provide them with the attention they needed for their betterment.
“We are not a typical physical therapy place. We do traditional physical therapy, but we specialize in cases that really other places have failed,” Poindexter said. “We are experts at helping people overcome chronic injuries.”
GPT uses the latest technology, such as high-intensity laser treatments and the Accelerated Recover Performance, or ARP, Wave, which are usually only available to professional athletes, Poindexter said. GPT uses these two devices to stop any pain that patients might be feeling rapidly and permanently, she added.
The high-intensity laser treatments involve a warm laser that causes rapid healing at the cellular level, Poindexter said. It can penetrate bone and muscle up to 6 inches deep, she added.
The ARP Wave uses a high-intensity direct current to build muscle and build brain-to-muscle connections, she said. It is a different technology because 20 minutes of it is equivalent to lifting heavy weights in the gym for an hour, she added.
“Our whole mission and focus is on getting people back to natural health without pain medication, devices and surgeries,” Poindexter said.
Other services that GPT offers to patients include pelvic-floor physical therapy, core strengthening, scar tissue softening, aquatic therapy and myofascial release, which includes pressure on pain points.
GPT has an approximately 90% success rate due to the combination of traditional therapy and innovative technology, she said. The clinic has treated over 2,000 patients since 2014.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, the clinic was able to stay open and provide its patients with the help they need, she said. GPT now is also able to provide telehealth services to those interested, Poindexter added. The clinic also accepts all major insurances.
“We just want to be a community resource for people to know that they don’t have to live in pain,” Poindexter said. ”With the right approach, they can get out of pain.”
