My Biography--Dr. Gail M. Detjen PT DPT

Okay, so maybe I don't look like this. However, I do live in Wisconsin, and I love the Badgers and the Packers! The truth of the matter is that I am not a "picture" person. Don't get me wrong. I love taking pictures-- of other people. I just don't like being in pictures, and I rarely take a "selfie". It's not that I am a vain person; it's just that my perception of myself, and the photographic reality never seem to match up! It unnerves me sometimes, but I guess we all struggle with how we feel, and how we are perceived. I think that is especially true for people who struggle with chronic pain. When I was a young physical therapist, in my twenties, headache pain blurred my vision, challenged my mental capabilities, and taunted my emotions every day.

Yet to anyone looking at me, I appeared young, confident, and attractive. It did not match what I felt inside! Now, in my 50's, I feel wonderful most days. So it comes as a shock to me when I look in the mirror, or at a photograph of myself: who is that old lady looking back at me? Sigh. Never mind. I feel blessed! I am right where I am supposed to be. I am finally practicing physical therapy the way I have always wanted to: helping people wherever they are, and providing whatever they need. Yes, I have a doctorate in physical therapy and 30+ years of experience, but there is more to the story. I have been privileged to work with adults of all ages, teenagers, and children. I have encountered patients with a variety of diagnoses and challenges. I have struggled with chronic pain and physical challenges myself. Finally, I have been blessed with gifts of healing that the Lord has entrusted to me. It amazes me every day what the Lord is able to do through me. Then I remember His promise in John 14:12: "Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these . . . " I can do physical therapy, and more, to help those in need of healing. Thank-you, Jesus!

Alternative Therapy

If you come to me for healing, I believe it is because the Lord has led you here. Let's face it: you could go anywhere for physical therapy. But maybe you are looking for something different. Maybe you have tried physical therapy and it didn't work. Maybe you have consulted with other kinds of practitioners or specialists, and are frustrated, and still in pain. Don't give up! Alternative Therapy that treats the whole person, body, mind, and spirit works. I will consult with you one on one in my home or yours, where you will have time to tell me your story, and for us to get to know each other. I will listen to your concerns, and we will plan your treatment together. I will answer all of questions. Then you will be treated gently in a private, relaxed setting with hands-on techniques that really work to reduce tension and release pain. They have used with thousands of patients successfully all around the world. I will also pray with you before or during the treatment, unless you prefer not to. I find that prayer is the best way to achieve healing of not just the body, but mind and spirit as well. I will always be open to explaining the different techniques and answering your questions, to put you at ease. Before I discharge you, I will make sure that you have some simple exercises and advice on how to keep yourself feeling well. Most people only require a few treatments to attain their goals. I will guide you in this healing journey, but you are the one who will make the important decisions concerning treatment. A doctor's prescription is not necessary for treatment, but I will be in touch with your physician if you wish, to advise them of your treatment and progress. I look forward to meeting you, and helping you to know that God loves you, and He still heals people today. He just uses another set of hands like mine!
