Tom Komperda received his DPT from Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science. At RFUMS he spent over 1400 hours working in the anatomy lab.The time spent in the lab has helped Tom hone his manual and palpation skills. Tom is adamant about educating patients about their diagnoses, prognoses, and how their anatomy has been affected. He feels the more a patient knows about what is wrong and how to fix it, the more empowered they are and subsequently more motivated to participate in their rehab.
Tom is passionate about his career as a Physical Therapist and receives a sense of joy from helping others. He approaches physical therapy from a holistic perspective and always places the patients needs first. He believes that treating the orthopedic dysfunctions patients present with is not enough. Therefore, he regularly addresses patients nutrition, cardiovascular and pulmonary health, as well as emotional well-being to assist in the healing/rehab process.
