FARMINGTON — Dennis Flanagan, PT, DPT, OCS, has been awarded his doctorate in physical therapy from the University of New England.

The owner of Allied Physical Therapy in Farmington, Flanagan has been practicing physical therapy since 1983.

He has a concentration in the study of biomechanics and manual therapy.

Physical therapists are licensed health care professionals who help patients reduce pain and improve or restore mobility, often avoiding surgery and reducing the need for long-term use of prescription medications. Physical therapists teach patients how to manage their condition and prevent reoccurrence so they will achieve long-term health benefits.

Allied Physical Therapy is on Middle Street in Farmington and is accepting new patients with orthopedic concerns. This includes sports medicine, post surgical rehabilitation and work-related injuries.
