Congratulations are in order for a few of our Shore Ortho Physical Therapy clinical staff members. This past weekend finished a long clinical journey. In year one of their journey, they became Certified Orthopedic Manual Therapists (COMT). In year two, they completed their Residency Training. This past weekend, they completed the last portion of their journey and became Fellowship Trained. They are now Fellows of the American Academy of Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapists (FAAOMPT).
Dizziness is a common problem that can affect a person at any age. There are many reasons for dizziness, some more serious than others. One common, easily treatable cause of transient dizziness is called “benign paroxysmal positional vertigo,” or BPPV. Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo causes dizziness related to head movement and position and is due to a problem in the inner ear. Dizziness can negatively affect one’s quality of life and is associated with an increased risk of falls. This may be especially problematic for older people, who have a greater chance of falling and breaking bones. Recovering from a fracture can be particularly difficult for someone who is elderly.
Three of the Shore Orthopaedic Physical Therapy clinicians recently completed the Ola Grimsby Institute’s Residency Program. They each PASSED both the written and practical portion of this program. This is a huge accomplishment and was a two year journey with each of them completing The Ola Grimsby Institute’s Certification on Orthopedic Manual Therapy (COMT) Program prior to completing the Residency Program.

Going to Dr. Islinger’s office is a real treat. Beautiful surroundings, flat screen televisions, family seating, and a Keurig coffee maker greet you. You are seen quickly by a staff member as you sign in and the wait has never been very lengthy. Staff keeps you apprised of any waits or how long you can expect to wait. The Doctor greets you warmly and listens to what you have to say – very carefully.

Dr. Richard B. Islinger is exemplary. He takes a very personal interest in your care and should you meet him outside of the office or hospital he is the kind of Doctor that will remember you and your case and he is the kind of man that will greet you as a friend. He takes your care as seriously as if you were his relative and he goes to far ends to solve difficult problems which he then takes great pains to help you understand.I never felt alone for either he, or his Associate Doctor, came quickly at each crisis.
I had had a knee replacement in 2011 which went excellently for the most part, but in April 2014 I had an onset of pain and found that my knee had become infected. He went through three debridement surgeries with me and now I am well and strong and have 90% use of the knee. Since I am 70, I think that’s kind of remarkable. Dr. Islinger is an excellent, thorough, and compassionate Surgeon that I would rate an A+.
