Dr. Beth Dardick, PT, DPT, CMTPT

I was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland. I attended a 6-year DPT program at Northeastern University in Boston, MA. During undergrad, I completed two 6 month Cooperative education (COOP) experiences in Baltimore. The first COOP was spent working in aquatic therapy primarily in spinal cord injury at Kennedy Krieger’s International Center for Spinal Cord Injury. The second COOP was spent working at an outpatient clinic, helping restore crossfitters and weekend warriors to full function. I had the opportunity to work again in outpatient orthopedics and spinal cord injury (SCI) during clinical rotations in my final year of PT school, and while I loved treating the acute SCI population, I decided to focus on honing my manual skills in outpatient orthopedics when I graduated in 2017.

I have taken a wide variety of continuing education courses since then, including certification in level 1 of the selective functional movement assessment (or SFMA), dry needling, instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization, and spinal manipulation. I love using these tools to help make meaningful change for patients, which includes eliminating pain, optimizing function, and ultimately reaching their goals.
