Integrative Physical Therapy takes a holistic approach to healing, combining traditional physical rehabilitation with medical therapeutic yoga. Whether you are healing from an injury, ready to take control of your chronic pain, deepen your personal yoga practice, or heard from your doctor that you should ‘try yoga’ but don’t know where to start, this approach will help you move forward to better well-being.
Get to know Dr. Megan and determine if Integrative Physical Therapy is right for you with a Discovery Session, an opportunity to discuss your history, ask questions, and begin the conversation with a brief screening.
Working with Megan begins with an Evaluation Session where you will discuss in more detail your concerns, symptoms and goals. Megan will observe and evaluate how you are moving and take a complete and thorough history to get to know YOU. This will help create the best individualized care plan to help you reach YOUR goals.
In your Follow Up Sessions with Megan, you can expect gentle hands on treatment, awareness exercises to help you connect with your body, and movement based exercises. She is committed to intelligent & intentional yoga to ensure you are getting the most benefit from your practice – whether at home or in the studio.
Megan Anderson, PT, DPT provides Integrative Physical Therapy specializing in pelvic health. She views rehabilitation and wellness care as a partnership in health with you, her client. She believes that you are the expert in your body and paired with her expert knowledge of the body, chronic pain, anatomy, and more she can help you reach your goals to be more active, feel better, understand how to optimize your yoga practice and more!
As a Doctor of Physical Therapy and a trained Yoga teacher with additional Medical Therapeutic Yoga Training, Megan is uniquely qualified to address injury and physical limitations relating to your practice.

Do I need a referral?
To begin working with Megan, you do not need a referral from your physician. However, some insurances may require a referral.
Do you take insurance?
Dr. Megan Anderson, PT, DPT is an out of network provider for all insurance companies. Many insurance companies offer reimbursement for services obtained ‘out of network.’ It is recommended that you check with your insurance company for the specifics on coverage. Tricare Standard: If this is your insurance, your visits are eligible for reimbursement. At your first session, ask Megan about the details on how to submit.
What does a session look like?
Once you meet with Megan for an evaluation, each follow up session will be 55 minutes in duration. Each session will be unique to you and will include manual therapies, yoga based exercises and education about your condition and what you can do between sessions. We will also integrate mindfulness based modalities including meditation, breathing, and deep relaxation as appropriate. Sessions are always one on one without interruption. This time is reserved just for you.
How long do you normally work with a patient?
This will vary for each individual, but generally the most benefit is achieved when we work together 1-2x/week for 3 months. I often see clients for 6-8 months in total at varying intervals. We will discuss a plan at your initial visit and determine what is most appropriate.
Do I have to be injured to see you?
No! Wellness appointments are a great way to learn about your body and take your yoga practice to the next level! Not to mention it is a great way to stay healthy and prevent long term problems.
