Founders and Faculty > Peter Philip, PT, ScD, COMT
Peter Philip, PT, ScD, COMT is a two- time graduate of Quinnipiac University; in 1996 with a bachelors in Physical Therapy and in 1999 with a Masters in Orthopedic Physical Therapy, and his doctorate from Texas Tech University’s Doctor of Science program where he enhanced and confirmed his independent research on pelvic pain, non-surgical orthopaedic medicine and teaching.
Peter has dedicated his life’s work to the eradication of pain and dysfunction. He treats both chronic and acute conditions, and bases his success on an integration of anatomy, physiology, kinesiology and pathoanatomy.
Since 1997, Peter Philip has been the owner/director of Philip Physical Therapy, which is currently located in New Canaan, Connecticut. After initiating his private practice out of his truck with a reflex hammer and folding table, he is grateful to have an office space from which to work, as driving 1,000 miles a week had become quite taxing.
Peter has been treating patients with pelvic dysfunction, pelvic pain and bladder/bowel dysfunctions since 2001. He incorporates sound differential diagnostics and treatment strategies that address the spine, pelvis, sacroiliac joints, hips and pelvic anatomy. In 2010, he was acknowledged by the International Association of Orthopedic Medicine (IAOM) as a leader in the field of nonsurgical medicine, and was certified as an orthopedic manual therapist (COMT); The 2nd in the East Coast, and 1st in the Tri-State and New England regions. In April of 2014, Peter was one of eighteen to successfully complete and receive recognition as a Pelvic Rehabilitation Practitioner (PRPC), and the first male nationally to receive this certification and recognition.
Peter was mentored by Dr. Russell Woodman and has taught nationally since 1995 on topics that range from pelvic pain, spine (cervical, thoracic, lumbar and sacral), hip, shoulder, knee and ankle. Peter developed and teaches Differential Diagnostics of Chronic Pelvic Pain and Differential Diagnosis of the Sacroiliac Joint through Herman & Wallace.
