What people say about Megan:
"I am so thankful that I had Megan lead, teach, and help with my knee and leg problem. She is delightful to be with. She is so knowledgeable in her therapy field. The time with her has been so pleasant and helpful. Thank you, Megan!" -Bessie K.
"I had pelvic floor issues. My doctor recommended DPT Sport. I no longer have any issues! If you put in the work I believe you could resolve any problems with this. Megan Lamphere was the doctor who treated me. She had brilliant ideas and was relentless in opening my mind to all she offered. I followed the exercises and will probably have to keep doing for my health. I’m also doing yoga...she was never frustrated with me, she had better ideas if I had a relapse. I admit I was skeptical about this therapy. My advice is to listen to the doctor, put in the work and be patient. Thank you Megan" -Lenore Y.
"I went to DPT Sport for postpartum physical therapy. I worked with Megan and she was fantastic! She was very thoughtful and caring with her approach to my care. Almost every appointment, she had new tips and tricks that I could incorporate into my everyday life to keep healing moving forward even when I wasn't in the office. The best part is the one on one care. Your physical therapist is focused on you and only you during your appointments. I learned a lot during my time that will help me moving forward. I'd highly recommend DPT Sport!" -Rachel G.
"Could not have had a better PT experience! I have had foot issues for a few years which has sidelined me from athletics. Thanks to Megan at DPT Sport, I am back to running. She customized a program that put me on a the fastrack to full recovery. Whether you have sports injuries or every day pain, I could not recommend them more. Thanks to Megan and the rest of the staff at DPT Sport for all of their help!" -Colin F.
"DPT Sport was super awesome helping me get through my pregnancy. About half way through, at 20 weeks, I ended up throwing my back out and Megan helped me strengthen my back and other muscles to help with my ever changing balance. I am a high risk pregnancy, and she carefully worked with me each week after that until well into my third trimester to do safe exercises for my particular situation. I highly recommend them!" -Jessie J.
"I was treated at DPT Sport by Dr. Megan Lamphere for a partial tear in the medial meniscus. I was limping, experiencing knee pain after sitting even a few minutes, and unable to walk down steps or stairs. Megan was very thorough in evaluating my condition and adjusted my treatment plan as needed. I was skeptical at first, thinking I would eventually need surgery. I am truly amazed that with expert physical therapy, all my symptoms are gone and I am walking and moving about normally! I appreciate the professionalism and expert evidence-based care I received. In addition, the front desk staff is warm and welcoming, and efficient in addressing any appointment or billing concerns. I highly recommend DPT Sport!" -Dr. Leslie F.
"My mother needed physical therapy after suffering a broken ankle. Megan spent every minute of every appointment with my mom. Megan's knowledge, encouragement, and compassion was the key to getting my mom healthy and strong again. Both of us highly recommend DPT Sport." -Lea M.
