UNT Health at Alliance provides unique physical therapy

The opening of a physical therapy clinic at UNT Health’s Alliance office brings unique services to the area.

Marie Woerner, PT, DPT, is one of the few physical therapists in Tarrant County who treats pelvic problems in both men and women. She and Charles Nichols, DPT, are the new physical therapists at the Alliance Clinic in north Fort Worth/Keller. Nichols has extensive experience in orthopedic therapy, especially spine rehabilitation and sports therapy.

Woerner specializes in women’s health, including care during pregnancy and postpartum; and fibromyalgia, osteoporosis and lymphedema. She also uses a biofeedback unit for some patients, to allow them "to see and monitor what their pelvic floor muscles are doing with specific tasks." The patient is connected to this unit with surface EMG electrodes, and can move around freely with the machine in place. She also treats patients with general orthopedic conditions ranging from low back pain to post-surgical issues.

Nichols’ concentration is primarily orthopedics and sports therapy, with a special interest in spine-related pain. He has worked with college and high school sports teams for two decades. He is certified in strength and conditioning, manual therapy and dry needling. He uses the Functional Movement Screen (FMS) to predict possible causes of injury. FMS is an assessment of movement patterns that are crucial for normal functioning.

UNT Health at Alliance is at 12650 N. Beach St., Suite 148, Fort Worth 76244. It offers adult primary care and women’s health services including obstetrical care, and has certified nurse midwives on staff in addition to physicians. To make an appointment, call 817-735-2100.
