Treating the body as a whole in of the utmost importance. Through our extensive training and experience, I am aware that the location of your pain may not reflect the actual cause of your discomfort.
Are you trying to stay healthy/fit but can’t because an injury is impacting your ability to be active?
Is an injury stopping you from participating in activities you love like working out, running, walking, hiking, or just playing with the kids?
Have you been dealing with a chronic injury that just hasn’t gone away?
Have you seen other medical providers in the past with no long lasting changes?
I focus on solving these problems with my clients.
My goal is to help you stay active in whatever type of activity, training, or sport you chose.
Life is a lot more fun when you’re pain free and doing the things you love.
You being fit and healthy is also the best way to enjoy time with your friends and family.
I will help you live the high performance, pain-free life you deserve.
Who just need a little help (or a lot of help!) getting back to the activities they love after an injury or set-back.
Who know playing with their children is a lot easier and more enjoyable if they’re in less pain.
Who have poured all their energy and love into their children, who have now grown, and want to enjoy this next phase of their life with their spouse without being slowed down by aging.
Who feel like things have been different since having kids and they can’t quite pinpoint why and are frustrated with their lack of progress.
Who have poured all their energy into work and and want to enjoy time with their family without being slowed down by aches and pains.
Who need to keep their bodies performing at their best, without painkillers or visits to the GP.
Who don’t want their pain and stiffness to interfere with their training goals and are tired of being told to “just stop lifting” or working out.
Who want to continue pushing their limits, but are being held back by an injury or pain.
To ensure that you receive the highest level of care possible, each treatment you will spend one hour of high quality, individualized, 1 on 1 care from your designated doctor of physical therapy. You will never be treated by a rehab aid or assistant.
When I say I'm 100% committed to your entire rehab process, I mean it. During your rehab process and in between visits you will have direct access to me if you have questions.
Many physical therapy clinics will send out a bill months after your rehabilitation is complete. You will never be surprised by a bill you were not anticipating.
As a husband, father, and working professional, I understand how important it is to not be held back to be able to do all the activities that life requires and that our greatest asset is our health because it gives us qulaity time with the ones we love!
What Other People Just Like You Are Saying About Dr. Tom Tardif
"I suffered a knee injury in January. I tried traditional methods of PT, Chiropractic, even Orthopedic Doctor visits that included Xrays, MRIs, cortisone and gel injections. No improvement. When the Doctor started talking surgery, I knew I needed to try something different.
I went to see Tom and he quickly pointed out some issues with my musculoskeletal alignment that likely led to my injury and continued pain and limitations. Even after the 1st session with Tom doing some very basic exercises, I felt improvement, and after the 2nd visit and the expansion of the exercise regimen, I knew we were on the right track.
In addition to the knee, I also noticed improvements in neck and back stiffness and range of motion in all extremities. I have a much better awareness of my body alignment, mechanics and posture and how to make changes in my daily life to maintain that."
"I have had chronic knee pain since nine years old and have gone in for physical therapy before. When you get the same treatment, you get the same results. I decided to live through the pain. Fifteen years later my aunt convinced me to try again and that’s where Tom comes in.
What I didn’t know before working with Tom is that the headaches, the hip instability, the joint cracking, the tension in my body, the teeth movement, the TMJ, the trouble swallowing, along with chronic knee pain, were all connected. Not only is Tom working with me on the chronic knee pain I identified myself, but we are working through all the various pieces of my body that should work together.
After working with Tom for a couple months I have had a stretch of 19 days straight where I haven’t had any pain, which hasn’t happened in the last 15 years. I can now run a mile without pain, where before I would have pain and swelling after walking a half mile. Dr. Tardif, Dr. Pearson, and Dr. Cole have collaborated to get my body back in tune and if any of you are even searching for help, you already need it. I drive 45 minutes one-way for treatment and it is well worth the trip."
"Tom is great! I went in with lower back pain/SI joint pain that I've had ever since I had my 4th kid 5 years ago. He walked and talked me through the steps I need to take to not only get better but stay better. I'm currently on my 9th visit and have more knowledge and a hope that this is fixable for good and is not something that should be rubbed out, adjusted or shot up with a cortisone shot only for a temporary fix.
His technique is to change/retrain the way you move completely. I have had no pain since I've started working with Tom. I'm much more in tune with my body and aware of how to move and sit in order to keep my body aligned and functional without pain. If you're willing to put in the work, you will NOT be disappointed with the outcome."
