From Roger, a patient recently discharged…Don—Thanks for greatly helping me with my chronic TMJ and chronic low back pain. Both conditions were affecting my daily life. I felt they would be something I would have to just live with forever. But after several months of your treatments and suggested home exercises, both conditions are now nearly gone. I greatly appreciate what you have done for me.
You’re welcome, Roger! Our goal is to discharge patients as efficiently as possible.
I did something one day to my back and I was in a lot of pain. I went to my chiropractor and massage therapist. After several sessions I was not getting any results. I was referred to Don and it was amazing. He got me back to myself. Plus, he taught me how to PREVENT this from happening again with exercises. I can’t believe what a difference he made!! He also helped my with my headaches. I highly recommend him!!!
Great news! As of April 1, 2016, we are in network for United Health Care insurance.
Don recently attended the Craniomandibular and Craniofacial Dysfunctions and Pain Module 1 course through CRAFTA Myopain seminars. With this further education, Don is able to specialize in TMJ, TMD, and headaches. He will attend Module 2 later in 2016.

A patient wrote this in her newsletter at a local gym. We really appreciate such kind words.
“Don Ostdiek of Physical Therapy Works is up to his usual miracle working self. If you are training for a half or full marathon and experiencing physical problems due to it, don’t wait. Go see him. He’s the best.”
Don received the following note from a recent patient. We love to help people feel better!
Don, You have superpowers! I was still limping when I left your office Friday. Went to dinner with my son and his wife and was still hobbling a little but by the time we got home, I decided not to take the meds and had a great night sleep. No pain whatsoever during the night. Woke up with absolutely no pain at all and could not believe it. Felt great on Saturday but decided not to push it. I actually worked out on my elliptical on Sunday and felt great and still do. I cannot believe what great work you did on me. I am also convinced that you diagnosed the cause of the problem as well. I don’t think I’ll need any more appointments on this issue and hopefully no others in the future but if I do need help I know who to call now.
Yesterday marked our three year anniversary of opening! We are grateful to all of our patients, past and present, especially those who have referred family or friends. We love to serve you!
From Kim, a Personal Trainer and a patient of Physical Therapy Works: “If you’re looking for the best physical therapist HANDS DOWN, you have to see Don Ostdiek at Physical Therapy Works (84th and Frederick, by Mangelsen’s). You don’t have to live in pain. Here’s an example of my most recent Don-Rocks story: I’ve been having knee pain while running. Everyone I talked to (chiropractors, massage therapists, other pt’s) blamed it on my IT band. In one visit with Don, he evaluated the true problem and took care of it in a matter of minutes (using dry needling). ZERO pain now. The guy knows. his. stuff.”
