Derrin Kluth, PT.
I am a hands-on therapist who likes to work 1:1 with my patients focusing on treatment of the fascial system. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Kinesiology with an emphasis in Exercise Science from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, and my Clinical Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In Canada I obtained my Associates Degree in Massage Therapy from the Royal Canadian College of Massage Therapy and a completed the Ontario Internationally Educated Physical Therapy Bridging Program at the University of Toronto. Although in different countries I answer to different titles, what I do remains the same. It has helped me heal more patients more effectively than any other method of treatment I’ve utilized.
The cutting edge science of the human fascial system gives me an expanded view of how to treat the body’s musculo-skeletal-neurological problems with an awareness of how every part of the body is connected through the web-like fascial system and how that connection influences pain and dysfunction. While I didn’t intend to use these techniques from the start, it has become obvious over years of practice, study, and hundreds of patients treated that they worked far better in my hands than other options in getting patients back to doing the things
they love to do in work and at play.
I start by assessing the body as a whole. Then I will begin applying hands-on techniques that will remove the “tangles” in the fascial net that squeeze down on pain-sensitive nerves, muscles, organs, blood vessels and cause all kinds of pain and problems. Guided by what I feel under my hands, what the patient is feeling, and my clinical decision-making process, the problems ease and activities become less difficult. During this process, I teach the patient how to do these techniques at home and add any useful or specific rehabilitative exercises that will help return them to their normal lives. I also coach the patient in correct movement patterns and how to activate their muscles correctly to protect them from re-injury while doing the things they love to do.
